Here it is, the last Spooky Gamecut for October 2011, Costume Quest. Halloween has almost come and gone but that’s okay because with a game like Costume Quest, you can relive Halloween every day of the year if you want; and have a great time doing it! Costume Quest is a fun little rpg style game where you face off against goblins who are stealing all of the candy in the neighborhood. They then mistakenly steal your sibling, thinking they’re a piece of candy too, and this sends you on the Halloween adventure of a lifetime! Easily one of my favorite games from last year!
Here’s your invitation, to the Monster Party! Today we’re taking a look at Monster Party for the NES from 1989. This time I have my good buddy Grey from The Dark Hours Podcast joining me for the show!
This is a very strange game and I’m not even sure where to begin describing it. You play as Mark, who meets a gargoyle named Bert. The two fuse together and once in a while you can play as Bert instead of Mark. The old switch-a-roo! That’s about all I know about it, besides the fact that it’s also a pretty tough game. Hey, I can cry if I want to, it’s my Monster Party!
Would you kill me if I asked you…”Would you like to play a game?” Well now you can play a game, within a game! And here, you can watch me play a game within a game in the new Spooky Gamecut for Saw! Is Jigsaws foray into Gaming as personally gratifying as trapping some in sequential person in a bear trap? Probably not, but it’s got to be pretty entertaining nonetheless.
Now that we’ve seen a little Dead Space, what about the sequel that came out earlier this year? Issac is back, with more responsive controls and a voice! No longer is the space miner, turned alien destroyer, a silent protagonist.
This first twenty minutes of the game is some of the best horror I’ve ever seen demonstrated in a game. I’m almost tempted to tell you to skip watching this and just go find a copy of the game and play it now, but then who would watch this?!
We take a break from the retro games and jump into the 2008 released scary game called Dead Space. Most current generation savy gamers are aware of Dead Space, considering it was a huge hit! Advertised as a grindhouse game in space, the franchise was expected to be big on not only the game side of things but also with comics, books and even some animated movies. I haven’t checked out the other pieces of media but the game sure is scary!
You play as space miner, Issac Clarke who is on his way to check out a space station that his vessel recently lost contact with. When they show up, they find nothing but strange humanoid creatures that want to attack anything they come into contact with. Can Issac get through these tight corridors and murderous creatures and set things right?
