For a while now, Shinji Mikami, the man behind Resident Evil (among other things) has been teasing his new game, previously code named “Project Zwei”, because Mikami likes English like we like syphilis.

The announcement came through this morning that the project is in fact a survival horror game called The Evil Within. It’s being billed as “A return to TRUE survival horror” and “The perfect blend of action and horror.” The game is to be published by Bethesda Softworks and is being developed by Mikami’s studio Tango Gameworks.  Continue reading

Night-Time Listenings Wrap-Up: Halloween Special

For eight days we covered the topic of Halloween. The music we listened to ranged from dark, to mellow, to unnerving. We took a breather in  Resident Evil. Dreaded the Ishimura in Dead Space. We walked the haunted halls of Luigi’s Mansion. We braced for hell in Silent Hill 3. We feared the Alchemy Lab in Castlevania: Symphony of the Night. We feared pianos in Super Mario 64. We inquired about the life of Boos in Super Mario Galaxy. And finally we ended where we began with another Resident Evil composition.

If you want to see the music as it goes up (and not wait every Saturday for these wrap-ups), remember to go to our Tumblr page and follow it. Music for Night-Time Listenings goes up every weekday at 10PM.

From 1994-2001, Naoki Urasawa’s Monster worked towards answering all these questions and more. And from April 2004 to September 2005, an Anime adaptation was aired on NTV, and will be the subject of this review. An incredible work of dark, mature fiction that dips its hands into almost every moral dilemma imaginable, Urasawa’s black saga of violence, terror and regret is quite possibly Anime’s greatest counter to anyone who would dismiss the artform as “silly”, “immature” or “generic”.
