Castlevania: Lords of Shadow: Mirror of Fate confused me a little while playing it. I, admittedly, am not the biggest Castlevania fan, but I played the awesome Symphony of the Night, and immediately became interested in the series. This game, however, didn’t really live up to my expectations. It is a serviceable entry into the Castlevania lore, but lacks the flare that made other iterations in this series so awesome.

Let me start this out by saying Dishonored is an amazing game. It’s full of insane kills, devouring rat swarms, swords and knives, guns, stealth assassinations and all of that awesomeness. The acting is pretty good, and while it’s not the best looking game out there, it’s completely playable, and the more cartoon-ish graphics lend it a sort of atmosphere that just feels right when playing it.
The problem is that I’m just so lazy, and therein lies my discontent with this game.
Usually when I’m writing about a game based on a movie for Mat Langford’s Gaming World, it’s bad news. Let’s face it…there aren’t many great movie/tv-based games out there. So when I discovered Dexter on the iOS, I wasn’t expecting anything mind-blowing. What I got however, was something completely surprising.
There aren’t many games out there that scare me anymore. I’ve mentioned a few before in previous articles, but aside from those, it’s pretty tame out there in the world of horror games. That’s why this game caught me so off guard: I can confidently say, that if you’re looking for a genuine creep-fest, look no farther than Slender.
A “survival horror” game from Parsec Productions, it’s based on the recently created myth – completely made up during a contest to alter a picture and make it ‘paranormal’ – of Slender Man, a tall malevolent being that haunts and abducts humans. He is generally described as being between 6-15 feet tall and always dressed in a black suit. What makes him so creepy is the fact that he has no discernible facial features, only a white blank face. He is shown in the backgrounds of various pictures being generally creepy and disturbing. Go ahead and Google a few pictures of him, I’ll wait…Ok, freaky, no?
