The world within The Evil Within

The evil within 1

The Evil Within is coming and it’s bringing nightmare fuel. I should get to play the game soon, and I’m worried that in my quest to review it I’ll start waking up at night, screaming. Here are some of the things that are going to terrify you when you delve into the bizarre world of The Evil Within.

I’m so glad to learn that stealth will be such a viable option – that’s definitely going to be my preferred way of playing. Sneak around, kill each haunted one at a time and then run like a terrified Forest Gump the rest of the time. That’s a feasible plan, right?

Thus far, the trailers are scaring me more than my previous hands on time with the game. I’m really hoping that the game’s fear factor is way higher than it was at E3 – if so, I think it could be an awesome game, reminiscent of classic Resident Evil games. With plenty of horrifying puzzles to add to the scare factor, the game is sounding like it’s right up my alley, unless it scares me so much that I can’t even bear to open my eyes.

Are you happy to see the innovations in horror games? Survival horror was becoming an indie-only genre, and it’s great to see two titles out this month in time for Halloween that might get your heart pounding and your palms sweating. Is this a tall glass of nope for you, or will you be joining me in using this to cause high blood pressure?

Wielding my lasso of truth, I am the combination of nerd passion and grammar nazi. I delve into all things awesome and geek-tastic. I believe people should stop defining themselves and just enjoy playing games, so let’s get on with it!

    I suggest a Let’s Play TEW featuring Zoe.

    It would make for some lulz

  • Hammersteyn

    Thanks for the video but I’d rather wait for the game. Just so happy that someone releases a decent horror game for a change.

    • Admiral Chief 0

      You want a horror game? Just log into my FNB account…

      • Hammersteyn

        Sure, Skype me the username and password after you couriered your sim card 😛

      • HvR

        Same here, if the FNB bank manager logs in probably closer to a snuff film.

    • Ryanza

      the horror of 30 frames per second

      • Hammersteyn

        I’ve suffered through worse… Destiny was a right bitch to get working, but it was worth it. At least this is offline.

  • Cadis Etrama Di Umar

    Don’t buy this game! Its 30 fps, don’t support these fraudsters!!

    • Sageville

      Do you rage a your TV dishing out 24 fps as well?

      • Skoobaz

        The controls are responsive enough so no

      • Cadis Etrama Di Umar

        Yes, because I live on the internet!

    • Hammersteyn


    • Jer

      Oh no! The horror! My game won’t look like a soap opera!

  • I got some hands on time with this at rAge and it looks like a load of fun. Look forward to playing it alone at home.

      • Guild


      • 😛 Nah, just playing it with 500 people around you doesn’t lend much to it being scary.

          The guy must have been a big w***** on that date for a girl to do that to a guy. #forever alone

      • HvR


  • They were giving away ‘safe head’ boxes with each successful completion of the demo at rAge. The promo guy was a right dick though, telling us bullshit in order for us to fail. #cries

    • Nikola

      I got the box:)))

      • Lol. You probably didn’t have the dude I had ‘shoot the rope!’ No, you are supposed to shoot the button. Bastard 🙁

        • Nikola

          hahah true when you get dragged to that grinder thingy guy told me to shoot the button LOL!! can’t believe they cheated you like that bastards lol

          • Worst thing was I wasn’t able to pay attention as this spotty young kid was barking orders to me as he also failed because of the guy. He was really pissed off so I was like here, take the controller and try again. Some odd people! Also had some lunatic girl want to play with my mate and I at Mortal Combat, I told her to go first as her pushing was frigging irritating.

          • Nikola

            LOL I know some people there were a tad crazy had this chubby kid as well standing over me while playing breathing down my neck talking shit I actually had to tell him dude like take a step back please:| Shame some of them don’t get out of their caves much;) oh and btw Mortal Kombat looks awesome:)

  • Nikola

    I got a chance to play this at Rage the demo and after playing it I was plesently surprised. Gameplay is very solid and reminds me of old resident evil games mixed with Silent Hill. Nedless to say after playing a bit I pre-order it and looking forward to playing this as soon as I finish Shadow of Mordor!

  • Only thing this game did to me…

    • Hammersteyn

      Seems nothing can shut you up.

    • Admiral Chief 0

      Picture has no soul…


  • Sgt. M

    This game looks amazing. Couldn’t get my hands on it at rAge. Have to wait for the review rather
