X-Men Arcade Game Headed to XBLA and PSN

“I am Magneto, Master of Magnet. Ha ha ha!” Thus spake the greatest comic book villain of all time in 1992′s X-Men arcade game. Like a lot of arcade games in the early 90′s, this was a button mashing quarter muncher. However, that didn’t stop us from spending a portion of a paycheck to get to the end. Happily we’ll be able to relive the experience without going broke because Konami announced it is releasing the arcade classic on Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network, according to Kotaku.

More Details About the next Silent Hill

I’ll say it again and again, Silent Hill: Shattered Memories is overrated. Thankfully, Konami decided to go back to what made the series great for the eighth installment of the survival horror series.

Silent Hill: One Seriously F-ed Up Town

I don’t care much for most horror movies. The majority of them rely too much on gore, shock value, and the sudden appearances of the monster/killer/psycho. But when the horror is psychological-slowly built up from isolation, strange and abandoned surroundings, and enveloping darkness then I’m the first in line for the experience. Since video games are interactive, horror can be incredibly effective in this medium when done correctly.

SILENT HILL: SHATTERED MEMORIES Review

The very first Silent Hill was the most frightening video game I’ve ever played, and it stands as one of the scariest forms of entertainment that I’ve ever experienced. It didn’t shock you with jump-out-of-your-seat moments; instead it pulled you into its fog choked streets into a twisted, yet artful, psychological nightmare.
