Best of 2013 - Mark's Take

The Best

5. The Conjuring
Although I'm not usually one for supernatural escapades, even I have to respect "The Conjuring" and its kitchen-sink approach to jump scares and possessed things. "Based on a true story" has never been stretched so far, and I ain't mad about it.

Wizards of the Coast announces "New Phyrexia," a horror-themed set

If you're a regular listener of podcast, you know that I'm a more-than-frequent player of Magic: The Gathering. I've been hoping to write about the game on the site, but I've had trouble finding the right hook to tie it in, since we are a horror site after all.

How I learned to stop worrying and love...facebook commenting!

Some months ago, after being inundated with thousands of SPAM comments from what seemed like all corners of the internet, we decided to screen every single comment that came into the site. Unfortunately, this left many comments sitting in a queue for a number of days (our bad!), if they were even published at all. After much deliberation, and more than a healthy amount of pussyfooting and dilly-dallying, we've decided to switch over our commenting system entirely to facebook.

Summon a cuddlesome cowlike Cthulhu in "Super Scribblenauts"

Depending on your particular leaning as a genre fan, you'll likely find this to be either amazing or completely sacreligious, but the developers of "Super Scribblenauts" have decided to show off their latest innovative mechanic using Cthulhu, H.P. Lovecraft's signature monstrosity.

Video: "Bioshock 2" Launch Trailer

However strange it may seem, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon has been the go-to place for video game content on the late night scene. Keeping with that theme last night, he debuted this "Bioshock 2" launch trailer, which lays a basic stage for the game.

Video - "Left 4 Dead" Fan Made Movie Teaser

Although it's a little difficult for me to work up excitement about a fan film based on a game that's based on nearly every zombie film under the sun, I was actually pleasantly surprised by this teaser. It's not often that the terms "fan made" and "high production values" fall into the same sentence, but you may be surprised.

Australia Grants MA15+ Rating to "Aliens vs Predator" Game

It was recently announced that the "Aliens vs Predator" reboot for PC, Xbox 360, and PS3, will in fact no longer be banned in Australia, and will appear on shelves uncut, contrary to previous speculation. It was also announced that it will carry an MA15+ rating, prohibiting anyone under the age of 15 from purchasing the game. Although this is seen as a victory for the gaming community, it has left some people wondering whether there should be a steeper rating category than MA15+, which is currently the country's highest rating before refusing to sell a game altogether.

"Left 4 Dead 2" DLC Will Bring Back Old Friends

One of the major laments of "Left 4 Dead 2" (mostly before its release) that was that besides a very far-away cameo, the survivors from the original game were absent from the sequel. Come the spring, that problem will be taken care of as Valve has announced that the first DLC for the critically acclaimed sequel to the critically acclaimed first person Zombie shootout will include the original iconic survivors and some other goodies as well:
