Day 21 of the 31 Days of Horror have arrived, and Casey has decided it's time for a bit of a change up. Are you a fan of horror video games? Come see what Casey's got to play for October.

Do you sit in your living room on Sunday nights thinking, "You know what the Walking Dead show needs to really put it over the edge? More Pinball." ? Well guess what, you're in luck!

NeoCore games have already wowed us with their monster themed action RPG "The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing", can they provide us the same monster slaying fun in their darkly themed Tower Defense "Death Trap"?

Welcome to your new summer job at Freddy Fazbear's Pizza, where kids and parents alike come for entertainment and food as far as the eye can see! The main attraction is Freddy Fazbear, of course; and his two friends. They are animatronic robots, programmed to please the crowds! The robots' behavior has become somewhat unpredictable at night however, and it was much cheaper to hire you as a security guard than to find a repairman.

The gaming world is all abuzz about the various happenings at gamescom, a four day video game expo in Cologne, Germany. Thanks to this trailer and subsequent "playable teaser" for "P.T," the city known for its fragrances has taken on a nuttier scent over the past few days:

Many gamers were enthralled last year when Telltale games unleashed their emotional episodic Walking Dead game on the masses. We were all caught up with the weight of our decisions affecting the lives of fellow survivors and who didn't worry a little bit about protecting Clementine from the undead hordes when they went to sleep at night? Telltale teased us a bit with their '400 Days' expansion a few months back, but now it's time to reveal the new season!

Aaaand we're back! This time around, we're playing Rogue Legacy from Cellar Door Games! A pretty excellent little platformer/rogue-like hybrid, it packs some fun old school game play with solid platformer and some good laughs as well. It packs a hell of a challenge as well! (This game's going to make you swear. Just watch the video and see!)

If you're a gamer, no doubt you've at least heard of the absolutely kickass game "Bioshock" from 2K Games and its underwater, fallen utopia of madness, Rapture. You might even be playing the 3rd release in the series, Bioshock Infinite, right now (Well, not right NOW. Right now you're reading my blog, and quite frankly, that's more important than most anything.) Bioshock remains in most gamer's favorite games list because of its creepy, disturbing atmosphere and subject matter, highly interactive environment, engaging characters and replayability value. Don't be ashamed to admit you jumped the first time a Splicer came screaming out of the dark - or perhaps you needed some new underwear after your first experience with a Big Daddy. I think we all did.

Some fans can't get enough of Rapture, and the game only tells part of the tragic story. Before the underwater city of Rapture collapsed beneath itself and Splicers roamed its flooded halls, men and women thrived as they explored beyond the limits of their creative and scientific achievements. But who were they before their society crumbled around them? What was life like BEFORE the fall of Rapture? What went so wrong for its enlightened citizens? Was Rapture the paradise they had set out to create? Or Hell itself? Thanks to the imagination of some great fans, we get to glimpse at life as it may have been for a pair of new citizens, where opportunity & pursuits of happiness had no limits. Or so it seemed.
