  • Creeping Horror – Part Four: Erebus

    My foot hits the ground and I expect to hear the echoing step reverberate off the walls of the corridor, but there is nothing. As soon as sound is made, it is dead. The cold wind funnels through the corridor, penetrating my winter coat and making me feel its evil influence even under my thick…

  • Creeping Horror – Chapter Three

    Decay The next few days passed slowly, my inability to sleep contributing to their lethargic nature. How could I while whatever had appeared in my garden was still there, along with all the unanswered questions it brought with it? I’d spend the day staring into it and the night shivering in my bed. Where did it come…

  • Creeping Horror – Chapter Two

    Emergence Having finished my chores for the day, I settled down to looking after my garden, the jewel in the crown that was my outdoor space. I had my back to the hill, the house towering over me as I tended to the inflorescence of my roses. It was a blisteringly sunny day, the heat…

  • Minecraft: Creeping Horror – Chapter One

    Paradise It was a sweltering day in July when the hole appeared in the hill upon which I had built my house. I had invested many days into finding the ideal location for my new abode. I had come to this land in search of a new way of life; one less akin to the…

  • Pipe Dreams – E3 2012 Edition: What Went Wrong

    E3 2012 is now over. Announcements have been made, press events presented, and some gamers left screaming in anger and confusion at both the organisers and each other. There were many jaw-dropping moments at the event, with some personal highlights being Watch_Dogs and The Last Of Us, but there were many things which were not…

  • Pipe Dreams – E3 2012 Edition

    It’s that glorious time of year where E3 is nearly upon us again. Which leaves people, like me, wondering just what glorious treasures are soon to be unearthed and presented to us. Luckily for me I don’t need to wait, because this is Pipe Dreams and I do not work here on rumours or leaks,…

  • Pipe Dreams – The Thing

    The term ‘classic’ is thrown around all too often these days. Not that I want to become that old man shaking his walking stick at the latest sensations at the age of 23, but in my eyes something must hold up for at least two decades before it truly earns its wings and the title…

  • Playing With The Lights On

    Fear. In the world of gaming we can claim to be fans of horror but when you think about it, playing through a game that really succeeds as a truly scary game is not a pleasant experience. I do enjoy playing these types of games, but only when I am with friends, or more recently…

  • Fear of the Dark

    Inspired by Emily‘s recent blog about her descent into Amnesia (I’m here all night), I feel obliged to mention that she’s not the only one who isn’t that keen on horror games. You guessed it: Duncan! Me! Then again, the games that have scared me in the past haven’t exactly been what you would call…
