Hardcore Gamer: The venerable survival horror series Alone in the Dark is looking to have a new installment set for this year.
Survival horror is back! So excited this is coming back in what looks to be a big way.
They should let kojima handle this game too , i loved the first one on the ps1 and they are releasing it in 2014 with no trailer or marketing what so ever , thats not how you release your game and want it to succeed , and 2014 is full of games , they should delay it .
They should let Kojima handle everything.
I was playing it recently, Its great, but also frustratingly difficult! But that's not a bad thing!
That was the first horror game i played, man those trousers-only wearing zombies filled secret corridors in the mansion sacred me good when i was lil, i never beat it tho.
Interested, that's for sure. Let's hope it has that gritty survival horror aspect to it.
It's almost September and we've heard nothing on this Yeah I highly doubt it's going to be good.
To be fair, Atari blew its entire marketing budget on the teaser site.
I'm excited. The last Alone in the Dark had so much promise, but was held down by shoddy execution. I've always loved the series though. Let's hope this is a solid and proper return to the series.
Bring the series back to it's roots. Carnby in the 1920s. None of the modern day crap of the last two games.
The last game was an absolute abortion - but I DID appreciate it trying something new with the inventory management, the analog combat, and use of physics. It's just that the execution was shocking.
I am probably one of a few people who actually liked the last Alone in the Dark. The fantastic fire mechanics, the tense and realistic inventory system, interactive environments and car interiors, and some exciting setpieces and television/cinematic scenes. On the other hand, the atrocious forced open-world sections where you had to kill something like 30 roots for no reason in order to unlock SKIPPING to the final mission, and another 10 or 15 to actually progress to it, stiff controls, frustrating combat at times, general lack of horror or suspense, and the absolutely FLACCID ending(s) (i.e. shorter and more disappointing than the ME3 endings) made it such a mixed bag. I hope they learn from the other Survival Horror games that have been successful as of late, and strive to carve out a new take on the genre. The problem with AITD is that the original game is so basic and underwhelming by today's standards that the remake/sequel really could be anything, it has no "perfect formula" to try to replicate as the Thief, Deus Ex or other reimaginings attempted. Here's to the new devs to try to make something fantastic. I do hope they lean back toward the Lovecraftian in this new game as well. Not the meme-y "Lol-thulu" crap that's all over the internet these days but the truly horrific and alien that was the darker inspiration for the original games. I think the only game that really captured that feel since was Eternal Darkness.
