Voice actors are important. You might not notice them when they're good, but when they're bad they are so very, very bad. The Evil Within is sporting some excellent voice talent as shown off in a new video.

The Evil Within is hoping to help revive the survival horror genre for the mainstream (read: non-indie) gamers. While the game looks beautiful, I wasn't blown away by it when I played it at E3. They decided to release the achievements, but it's not as easy as finding a list - there's a puzzle to solve first.

It’s been a while since I’ve had a good fright. Not since I accidentally walked into a showing of Mamma Mia, have I been properly horrified, and by all accounts, I’m going to need to wear my brown pants when I play The Evil Within. It’s a spooky-looking game, with new-gen barbwire physics confirmed. What it doesn’t have confirmed however, is an alternate cover option. The time for voting, is now!

From everything we’ve heard about the newly rebooted Doom, it sounds like the glorious union of old-school sensibilities and new-generation technology. Doom sounds very much like it’s getting the same sort of attention to detail and love as the recent Wolfenstein: The New Order – and for fans, that’s exciting stuff. Pity you probably won’t get to even see it until next year.

The people over at id Software made many nostalgic fans weak at the knees during E3. They released the first teaser trailer for Doom 4, which has now been conveniently named back to just Doom. Just to get everyone all confused when actually trying to talk about the game without referring to the original.

Even though it had a done in one story, Wolfenstein: The New Order still had plenty of room for a sequel. It’s also a sequel that gamers would most likely welcome, as there is more than enough room in the industry for a balls-to-the-wall old school shooter. And the team behind that game has some ideas for that potential game if they get the green light to go ahead.

The Evil Within in a survival horror game that promised to get in your head, give you minimal resources, and return players to that absolute sense of horror felt in games of the past. But can it deliver the fear?

Ah, here we go Bethesda. Here’s yer problem right here. See this? Ya got a leak. Yeah, ain’t too nasty, but it looks like you’re losing all the pressure in your Prey 2 pipes. Better get that fixed before we’re knee-deep in Codename Danielle.

We’ve known for a while that Bethesda’s got a new game that they’re going to be showing off at E3. We, like many of you, have been not-so-secretly have been hoping it would be Fallout 4. Sorry chaps, it’s not. In a press release sent yesterday, the company unveiled its brand new game – a stylish, stylised game set in an alternate universe’s  World War. Interestingly, it’s not a shooter. Nor is it an RPG. It’s a 32 player online, mostly-melee brawler. Well that sounds interesting. Oh, and it’s free to play.

Bethesda and Machine Games’ Wolfenstein: the New Order is pretty excellent stuff, meshing old-school ideas with modern ones in a way that actually works. It’s jumped to the top of sales lists the world over, which is great for a shooter that took the brave decision to excise multiplayer. It’s also being pirated like madness, despite weighing in at nearly 50gb.

Sometimes, hands-on previews of a game work against it. that’s what happened with Shinji Mikami’s Tango Gameworks and Bethesda’s Evil Within, the survival horror that’s supposed to be a return to form for a the genre. After a recent press hands-on and showing at PAX, the general tide swayed from one of positivity, to one of general boredom. ‘s still early days though, so here’s hoping that they’ve taken that negative sentiment, and are making a better game.

It’s 1960, and after a failed attempt to end World War 2 saw Wolfenstein series regular William “B.J” Blazcowicz down, defeated and stuck with some coma-inducing shrapnel in his skull, the world has changed. And not for the better.

You’re not going to see Fallout 4 for quite some time, and that makes me a sad panda. Still! That doesn’t mean that the franchise is dead, and even a former developer on one of the entries in that franchise has a few ideas for the rumoured sequel.

We’ve been rather excited for Machine Games’ and Bethesda’s new Wolfenstein game. for the first time in a long while, we’ve got a first person shooter from an established franchise that’s focused solely on the single player experience. From everything we’ve seen and played, it looks like an excellent return to form for a series that’s either stagnated or lost its way. Has Machine Games managed to recapture the magic? Here’s what Critics think of the new Wolfenstein.
