Barely over a week out from the release of The Last of Us, Manifest film has released the first episode of a web series that is based on the Naughty Dog game.
What exactly is “What Remains?”
“What Remains is an epic live action series produced by Manifest Film. All content on this page is intended to serve as reference material for a complete overview of the work and content characters that has been created so far by MANIFEST FILM. This web series is not endorsed by or affiliated in any way with Naughty Dog or any Sony company. WHAT REMAINS is a unique piece of content chronicling the journey of three unlikely friends as they attempt to survive in a world 10 years after a new strain of fungus as all but wiped out the human race.
This series asks the question: “What does it mean to be human when humanity’s time has passed?”
Check out the first episode below:
Currently in development for Stream, this game looks like it takes place after a lone survivor of a plane crash tries to survive in a forest.
Armed with what initially looks like only a lighter, the survivor encounters some type of creature (think the creatures from The Descent) in some caves that look to present quite the obstacle to surviving.
Check out the trailer below:
Welcome back to your regularly scheduled TV horror fix, it’s Evil Episodes #38!
On this edition we get right into the latest happenings on The Following, Bates Motel, & Hannibal. One series is winding down it’s first season, another is just getting started and the third is right in the middle of the tv terror!
Then the three of us dive into the pilot episode of the Zombieland TV series available exclusively on Amazon Prime for the time being. As of the recording of this episode it is available for free so do yourself a favor (or disfavor?) and check it on their dime!
To close out this episode we finally dive into our much anticipated retrospective on Supernatural. Yes, we go way back to season 1 to discuss the first two episodes. For those who have been down this road before (Jamie) or for those who are getting in on the spookiness for the first (Mike & Corey) this show is certainly an interesting watch and discussion. Does it hold up a second time for Jamie? Find out now…..
You can contact the show via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or via the brand new voicemail line at 760-661-7384 We appreciate any and all feedback!

Thanks for Listening and as always….Don’t Touch That Dial!!!
The Walking Dead’s second video game installment (unrelated to Telltale’s The Walking Dead episodic adventure from 2012) is about to hit consoles in a few days and so far other than knowing you play as Daryl Dixon in the events leading up to the TV show’s pilot, not much has been revealed.
Well here is a cool little tidbit to wet the appetite further, the opening credits from the game have leaked online….check ‘em out below….
I often get asked, “Are you really shelling out $60 for another Call of Duty game?” While the wallet has definitely gotten tighter over the years and I have to make my gaming purchases a little more far and few between…there is a reason I will keep snatching up Treyarch’s version of the critically acclaimed series…see below:
Black Ops 2 hits on November 13th! Pre-order now!
Is this a sign that Episode #4 in Telltale’s The Walking Dead video game series is going to be on the way sooner than later? Hot on the heels of the release of episode #3 of TWD, comes the trailer not more than 48 hours later. This is pretty uncharacteristic of the series thus far, as much time has passed between the first three episodes. Check out the trailer for “Around Every Corner” below….
***Warning, the trailer is likely to spoil elements of the third episode in the series, and given that the third episode just released a few days ago, it is highly likely a lot of you have not played through it yet. (Including myself, and I am refraining from watching this preview for that very reason….ok you’ve been warned)
I’ll admit it, I haven’t yet dove into the PS3 move yet. I have tinkered with it a bit on a friend’s system, and it was an okay experience. I think the issue is that being a Nintendo Wii owner as well I never felt that the PS3 move did enough on it’s own to bother with another motion controller. However, that may be changing soon with the new game UNTIL DAWN!
Until Dawn features all the elements you’d expect from your favourite teen horror movies: a script that’s funny, sexy and scary; a beautiful young cast; an isolated location; a devious killer; a dark secret and of course that all-important twist. Developed exclusively for PlayStation 3 by Supermassive Games, Until Dawn will make you look at your Move Motion Controller in a totally different way, as it becomes your torch guiding you through the dark as you attempt to survive Until Dawn.
This sort of sounds like you are playing the role of a member of “the teenagers” in a slasher film. On the surface it sounds like an awesome idea. However I also see there being a ton of variables that could make the game a winner or not. Will it be catered to a younger audience, the way most slasher flicks of the modern era are? Will it be void of blood and gore? Harsh Language? Etc etc etc…..pretty much will it be void of all the things we as adult horror fans want in our horror movies/games? Also, being a game that seems to play like a slasher flick, will it have a short running time, aka the length of a typical slasher flick? I noticed in the game notes you can play as any of the 7 characters so I’d imagine there might be some replay ability, but to me that becomes null if all seven characters go through the exact same story/path which leaves the player with nothing new for each play through.
With that said, here is the trailer which I think looks promising and I love the idea that the motion controller will be the player’s torch….hopefully we get more details soon!
If you frequent this site then you are no stranger to the anticipation level I have for Naughty Dog’s latest game The Last of Us, from the studio that brought us the Uncharted series:
The Last of Us is genre-defining experience blending survival and action elements to tell a character driven story about a population decimated by a modern plague. Cities are abandoned and being reclaimed by nature. Remaining survivors are killing each other for food, weapons and whatever they can find. Joel, a ruthless survivor, and Ellie, a young teenage girl who’s braver and wiser beyond her years, must work together to survive their journey across what remains of the United States.
Every time I see new footage of this game I want to get my hands on it early, even more. Unfortunately that isn’t likely to happen, so I will have to wait with everyone else for 2013!
After much frustration over the delay in getting the latest episode of The Walking Dead game out, this news is sure to put a brain-eating grin on everyone’s face. Not only have we been given release dates for both consoles but they happen to be THIS WEEK! Yep, that’s right!
“Starving for Help” hits XBL tomorrow as well as PSN this Friday…..as a huge fan of the first one, (a full review of it can be heard on episode #20 of the podcast) I have been eagerly awaiting episode #2 to release and the wait is almost over! Hooray! If you pre-ordered the entire series like me you won’t be paying a dime, if not this episode as a stand alone will cost the very reasonable price of $5
Edit: At the time I posted this story yesterday the trailer had not been released, but today while I was at work the launch trailer for episode #2 was made available…so here it is!
Not sure what to make of this game just yet. Watching the five minute clip (see below) was almost like watching a movie rather then a game. Sometimes that means it will transfer into an excellent game (Uncharted series) other times mixed results (Heavy Rain).
