Review Until Dawn

Written by Twisted Ideas

We have many kinds of horror games out for us. Some are psychological, some action heavy and others have you completely powerless. Until Dawn is the first horror game that I can think of that directly mimics a horror movie rather than taking inspiration. All the trailers for this game made it look like a 90’s slasher movie with Heavy Rain-esque gameplay. Does Until Dawn succeed in merging horror movies and video games?

It is said that this is the first game to feature a female main character with the two main characters being twins. Of course the trailer doesn’t really show this but baby steps right?

Article The Last of Us: Left Behind

Written by Twisted Ideas

Naughty Dog’s story DLC for the Last of Us will take us to before Ellie met Joel. This is a story between Ellie and her best friend Riley who she had mentioned briefly during the game.

I am excited for Left Behind because of the strength of The Last of Us’ writing. Prequels tend to be a bad idea. The setup is usually less interesting than the core of a story. Not all video game prequels are bad though (God of War Ghost of Sparda, Batman Arkham Origins, etc). Some prequels are successful because they have the room to create good stories without worrying too much about the baggage from the series. I’m worried about the length of the DLC will limit the story. What I don’t want to happen is Left Behind to take place in a single area or be one extend story sequence. We know how this story ends. What we don’t know is the relationship between Ellie and Riley only based off the game. This needs to be the focus rather than the finale.
