Who Needs a Head to Play The Evil Within

Published on Monday, 20 October 2014 20:11

Written by DJ Kinsey

headless evil within

Have you ever heard the true story about Mike The Headless Chicken?  In 1945 farmer Lloyd Olsen was sent to the chicken coop to fetch some poultry for dinner.  He grabbed a chicken named Mike and promptly chopped the chicken's head off before planning on prepping and cooking the bird.  Turns out Lloyd wasn't the best shot with the axe and one of Mike's ears and part of his brain remained intact.  Without the benefit of a head Mike continued to live for another year and half as Lloyd cared for the bird feeding it a mix of milk and water via an eye dropper.  Read more...

Launch trailers for video games don't typically release very far before the actual game drops.  Activision made an exception by showing off the launch trailer for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare over two weeks before the game's release date.  Two words to describe the trailer would have to be "Kevin Spacey-arific".  The Academy Award winning actor plays a...

Have you heard, NHL 15 is missing a few features?

I remember being thoroughly disappointed that last years NHL 14 was not going to appear on the Xbox One or the PS4.  Every other major North American sport received their next-generation iteration; hockey fans got the proverbial short end of the stick. But I believed that the NHL franchise was in good hands, if only for the quality the developers had shown in the series' previous entries, and if those developers needed an additional year to fine tune their game, great.  After playing the full game via EA Access early trial, I am worried again.

Marking The Mid-Point of 2014: Highs, Lows and Hopes

  Here we are at the half way point of 2014. According to the Chinese zodiac 2014 is the year of the horse; the wood horse. It is to be a year of conflict; wood will fuel the fires and lead many to clash headlong into battle. How fitting it is then that my video game highlights, disappointments, hopes, and dreams for the year are directly in conflict with one another: Lightning quick interfaces vs a lack of new-gen experiences, game costs vs value, PlayStation vs Xbox.   Read more
