Yes, your Ghoul of Gaming has another tidbit for you! If you played Dead Rising 2, you'll know it's a nifty zombie survival game; a completely open world full of different choices and endings. While I didn't think it was as good as the first one, I did enjoy it. Hell, how can you NOT enjoy making custom weapons like the Broom Katana, Bucket 'O Drills, Beer Hat, & the Super BFG, to name a few. The mass slaughtering of literally THOUSANDS of zombies is so satisfying, and never gets old. Hell, that could be the entire game, and I would be perfectly content with it.

Yes, I'm back with another hybrid of horror and nerd-ism! And this one made me cream my jeans!

If you're like me, and had been putting off buying the latest Mortal Kombat, you may want to go get your wallet: Freddy Krueger has been announced a downloadable fighter - and he has some of the best fatalities I've seen. This is awesome. Rumor has it, that if enough sales are generated from this, they'll look into adding more playable horror characters.

I've fallen out of the loop on the whole "Alien Vs. Predator" movie craze but apparently they haven't been very good. The video game coming out on March 31st though looks good, very good even. I could use a little more game play footage and a ton more Jesse The Body but from the looks of things you can be all bad ass and kill the crap out of humans. Dreams do come true. Check the video out below and pick up your copy for the Xbox 360, Playstation 3, and Windows PC in March.

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.

"Dead Space" was just about the scariest gaming experience experience of the past five years. When I completed the game, it left me with the same awestruck feeling that a great horror movie would. As it turns out, this is no coincidence. As anticipation for "Dead Space 2" builds, the dev team sat down with Game Informer to share some of their most prominent horror influences, which are actually quite diverse.

It’s been months since I’ve turned on my Xbox 360 but from the looks of the newly released behind the scenes clip from “Wolfenstein” I think I might be picking up the controller again. Activision gives a pretty good overview of the game and how it’s evolved, and most importantly explains to fans how they’ve tried to stay true to the original games. “Wolfenstein” comes out for the Xbox 360, PC, and Playstation 3 on August 4th.

One of the things that was missing from the original "Left 4 Dead" was melee weapons. Sure, guns, Molotov cocktails, and pipe bombs are cool, but do you really think that those things would be as easily at your disposal when the zombie apocalypse comes? Thankfully, the omission is being rectified in "Left 4 Dead 2," and this off-screen video from the floor of this week's San Diego Comicon shows just how fun (and bloody!) these new additions can be:

The buzz machine has been firing on all cylinders for the past few months over the fall release of "Bioshock 2," including shipments of records, paper dolls, and misc promotional materials to media outlets. Unfortunately, the news broke yesterday that even with such strong hype, we're going to have to wait just a bit longer to get our hands on the game, specifically the (I'm sure intentionally) vague "2010 fiscal year."
