I’m a huge fan of the Slender Man, always have been, and this has been one of my most anticipated games for the year. I’m not exactly someone to get carried away by the hype or have any expectations in general, so I’ve been quietly excited about the release of this one. However, because sanity is for the weak, I pulled an all-nighter last night waiting for the launch of this game, then once I had it I turned off all the lights, cranked the volume on my headphones up to maximum, and played this game the way it was meant to be played. With all that said, let’s get into The Arrival and whether or not it takes the Slender Man throne."
