Play This Fan-Made Silent Hill Tribute While You Wait For Silent Hills

Konami's Silent Hill series has served as inspiration for several films and countless nightmares. It's also driven some dedicated fans to create their own game set in the series' oppressive world. Alchemilla may not have monsters or an inventory system, but the Source-made project absolutely nails the atomosphere.

The fan-made game is called Alchemilla, and you can download it from the link. White Noise, the team that built the game, says that most of the limitations, such as the lack of an inventory or the ability to create notes and maps, is because of the game's engine. They do spin it as something that further sells the game's hardcore ambitions. Get your own notebook, if you need to keep track of things!

Despite Failed Kickstarter, Mutant Football League Is Still In Development

Mutant Football League had a rough go on Kickstarter, raising only $141,821 of its $750,000 goal in 2013. “"We will be back my friends. Not sure how, when,.. but were coming,” said creator Michael Mendheim at the time. Now, we have our first look at the game in action.

Mutant Football League is a reimagining of the Genesis title, Mutant League Football, led by the person who created that 16-bit classic. The pre-alpha footage below was published to YouTube on January 3. It’s still extremely early, but does show some of the monsters in action, along with play calling, and NFL Blitz-style post-play aggressiveness.

Reader Discussion: What Is Your Favorite Type Of Video Game Enemy?

This brings us a menagerie of video game baddies. Resident Evil has zombies covered, Saints Row IV Re-Elected has aliens, and the Gat out of Hell expansion brings demons into the mix.

Next week, we’re up against more zombies in Dying Light and at the beginning of February, we’re taking down enormous monsters in Evolve. We’re curious which type of enemy is your favorite to take down.

Does enemy design or classification impact your interest in games? Do you typically stick to more realistic settings, or do you prefer your enemies a bit less mundane. Are there any types of foes that you’re tired of dealing with or those you thing should make a comeback? Let us know in the comments.

New Company Gets Exclusive NASCAR Rights

about X hours ago from

As NASCAR racing teams prepare for Daytona in February, video game fans of stock-car racing may be wondering when the next installment of the NASCAR franchise is coming. The exact answer to that remains up in the air, but a new player on the scene – DMi Games – has announced that it has worked out a new deal for the exclusive rights to the racing association.

In an open letter on DMi's website, the company announced that it has the exclusive "long term" rights to publish and develop NASCAR titles across a variety of platforms, and it is already working on multiple titles aimed at different audiences.

DMi's first title is a sim-based NASCAR racer for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC that is expected in 2016. The company has worked out a deal with former rights holder and developer Eutechnyx for a transfer of art assets (such as tracks and cars), which will serve as a foundation for future games, and acquired the NASCAR Manager iOS app and other titles. DMi says that NASCAR Manager will be re-released soon.

Sid Meier's Next Strategy Game Gives Us Control Of Starships This Spring

about X hours ago from

2K and Firaxis have announced the next title from famed developer Sid Meier. His next strategy title, Starships, will take us to space to build a federation of planets and civilizations.

According to GameSpot, Meier sees this as the next step following Civilization: Beyond Earth. Humanity has experienced a diaspora, losing contact with some of its far flung bretheren.

The title is said to feature randomized maps, a mission structure, and of course, turn-based combat. The title is planned for PC, Mac, and iOS this spring. GameSpot has the announcement trailer.

Our Take
Firaxis is one of the most consistent developers out there, and I've greatly enjoyed most of what I've played from the studio. This gives me a Star Trek vibe, and that's just fine by me.

Persona 3 The Movie: #2 Midsummer Knight's Dream Getting Subtitled Western Release

Anime publisher Aniplex is bringing the second Persona 3 movie, Persona 3 The Movie: #2 Midsummer Knight's Dream, to North America.

Much like it did for the the first movie, Aniplex is importing Midsummer Knight's Dream to North America with subtitles as opposed to an English dub. Two Blu-ray versions will be available – the standard edition and collector's edition. Both will have the extended and theatrical version of the film, commentary, trailers, and commercials. The collector's edition will also include a soundtrack, box art by Persona character designer and animation director Keisuke Watabe, a 48-page art book (with a translation booklet), 10 Persona 3 stickers, and three key art illustration cards.

The movie released in Japanese theaters last summer and arrives in North America on Blu-ray March 11. The standard edition will be $60 to $75 depending on where you buy it, and the collector's edition will be $80 to $100.

Reader Discussion: Which Zelda Should Be Remade Next?

Reader Discussion: Which Zelda Should Be Remade Next?

The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask 3D hasn't released quite yet, but it's never too early to start thinking about the future.

To be clear, we are absolutely getting ahead of ourselves. Next month we get to replay Majora's Mask on 3DS, and pending any delays, we should have a brand-new core Zelda on Wii U before the end of the year. Also, it's only been a little over a year since the release of Wind Waker HD and Link Between Worlds. We're not hurting for new Zelda titles, nor are we hurting for worthwhile excuses to replay old ones.

All of that being said, I still think we should share which Zelda we would like to see be remade next. Personally, I would love an HD version of Twilight Princess. Ignoring the nostalgia I have for the Nintendo 64 Zeldas (which is very strong) Twilight Princess is probably my favorite Zelda. I would love to have the game in HD on a Wii U GamePad with a few updated textures here and there, and the option to play with motion controls or the standard controls that were afforded to the GameCube version.
