    Review: Last Year: The Nightmare (PC)


    A solid asymmetrical survival-horror game that's light on content.

    Asymmetrical multiplayer games have been going steady for the past few years now. Some of the biggest games in that particular genre include the long departed Evolve, the still ongoing Dead by Daylight, and even Friday the 13th if you're into that sort of thing. You can now add in Last Year: The Nightmare to the mix as it combines 5 versus 1 multiplayer with elements of survival-horror. As with those other titles, Last Year places one player in the shoes of a bloodthirsty murderer while the rest of the players play as one of five teenagers trying to survive and escape. What it delivers is a well-crafted gameplay experience that ultimately comes up short on content. Last Year: The Nightmare relies on a number of tried and true horror movie clich├ęs.

As you may have already gathered, Outlast 2 is full of religious overtones, excessive gore, and garnished with tales of the apocalypse and no fewer than two warring cults.

  • Feminist Frequency Creator Anita Sarkeesian Driven From Home After Death Threats and Abuse

    Anita Sarkeesian is the creator of Feminist Frequency's "Tropes vs Women in Video Games." Perhaps you've heard of it? It's rather hard not to hear anything about her or the series, especially this past month. You may be aware then of just how much abuse gets thrown her way on a daily basis. Well, it seems as though some Internet tough guys took things just a bit too far last night.

    A person or persons sent messages via Twitter to her about how they were going to murder her and her family. The abuse became so bad that she contacted authorities and decided to stay with some friends over night instead of at her own place.
    Some very scary
