Right, in case you’ve forgotten, we’re giving away a decidedly terrifying hamper including a copy of The Evil Within, and a wealth of associated goodies – like the coolest bottle opener on the planet. We forgot to do the draw last week, because we were too busy being lazy jerks. Here then, is the winner of the hamper.

Last week, we gave away a copy of Alien Isolation – but just one scary game is not enough, so we’re giving away another. Here’s your chance to win a copy of The Evil Within the new game from the demented mind that brought you Resident Evil.

The Evil Within is out, and unfortunately for PC gamers, is locked to 30fps like it is on the console versions. That’s ok though right? Bethesda’s given you some debugging options that’ll allow you to run the game the way it’s mean to on a pc; with a gloriously unlocked frame rate, right? Weeellll no. While the option exists, you’re going to have to duct-tape seventeen Nvidia Titans together to get it to run at 1080p at a constant, buttery smooth 60fps.

There is a lot of be afraid of in The Evil Within. In general, I'm less afraid when I can actually see the baddies that I need to kill - those environments are absolutely terrifying for me, though. Here is a trailer showing off all the horror as the game launches.

True survival horror games have been dead for a long time. But much like the unkillable antagonists of your favourite slasher flicks, the genre is once again rising from the dead. Amongst the new generation of such titles on the way, is The Evil Within. It’s a psychological attack mixed with pants-staining thrills and chills. So what’s it actually all about then?

The Evil Within is coming and it's bringing nightmare fuel. I should get to play the game soon, and I'm worried that in my quest to review it I'll start waking up at night, screaming. Here are some of the things that are going to terrify you when you delve into the bizarre world of The Evil Within.

I remember being terrified playing Resident Evil 2, and I have a feeling that The Evil Within will make me scream like the little girl that I used to be. This trailer is already quite terrifying for me - how on earth am I going to survive the whole game?

Just a week ago Bethesda revealed the required PC specs you’d need to get The Evil Within running in all its gory glory. They were pretty damned demanding, to say the least. What if you just wanted your annual dose of horror with a little less detail and a more stable frame rate? Well, then your PC will need to be at least this high to ride.

People love to be proud of their rigs - it's a thing to brag about your graphics card and RAM and all the rest. However, not everyone has the top of the range equipment. Unfortunately for them, they probably won't be able to play the latest and greatest horror title to be released.

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.
