Metal Music and Video Games

Metal music and video games go hand in hand. What? You don’t believe me? I’ve got some amazing games to talk briefly about, all of which have some massive metal soundtrack. You may not like metal, or you may absolutely love the genre, but I’m hopeful everyone will come away from this thinking “okay, that was a good soundtrack”. As a rule of thumb, I will not be including any Rhythm games, simply because it’s kind of implied that music will be a major point and we all know that metal music likes to be nice and tricky to play on a guitar or otherwise. Right then, let’s put up them devil horns and mosh away.

A History of Santa Claus in Video Games

Ho, ho, ho, Merry Christmas one and all! ‘Tis the season to be jolly and all that, so that means the man in red will come back out, gracing our rooftops with Reindeer droppings. He’ll fall down a chimney like the world’s clumsiest rooftop repair man and he’ll then have the audacity to eat your mince pies and drink your milk, beer, baileys, expensive wines or otherwise. After all, Santa Claus knows how to have a good time; even if he is a good fellow at heart.

Top 10 – Intense Boss Battles

GeekOut Top 10s

Boss battles are a staple of video games, usually combining all of the skills you have learned up until this point with some extra challenge on top. They’re built in such a way to test that the player has understood the core mechanics of the game: But if you haven’t, then you’re not going to succeed (At least, not easily). These are our Top 10 Intense Boss Battles, where the rules are very simple:

  • The battle must make you feel like you’re experiencing a challenge.
  • The battle does not have to be a final boss.

We will not be focusing purely on action games: But RPGs can make an appearance. Heck, even puzzle games sometimes have an intense battle. Here we go… (more…)

Top 10 Disgusting Enemies in Games

Yuck! Some enemies in video games are just downright disgusting. Sticky, smelly, slimy, grotesque… You name it: They’re at least one of these! But never fear, we thought we’d delve into the realm of the ugly and the vile, the gross and the gruesome.

Just to make the rules of this list as clear as possible: The enemies in question must be disgusting. This can range from being visually disgusting, metaphorically disgusting or even disgusting in flavour (no, we’re not on about their actual taste but what stories they may have behind them). This weeks Top 10 was chosen by you, so join in with choosing our next list at the end of the article!

Professional Gaming

Let’s not lie to ourselves here – many of us have thought “Pah, professional gaming? How could there ever be such a thing?” or “Heh, I could do what these guys do!” So the questions I’m going to immediately pose to you are: Why doesn’t it make sense to you? Why haven’t you done it if you think you can?

These questions have really obvious answers too: A lot of us have these things called day jobs, which prevent us from dedicating our days and nights to the games that professional gamers get so deeply engrossed in. So how can someone be sat there playing a game night and day? What do they really get out of it and why? What are the games that are regularly featured?

Top 10 Alternative Santa’s

We’re all familiar with the man in the big red suit who comes down our chimneys baring gifts. Just recently, we spoke about all of the ways we can keep our beady little eyes on the fellow as he makes his way around the earth.

So in this weeks Top 10, our last one before Christmas, we thought we’d look at the Top 10 alternative Santa’s in the whole of geekdom. We’ve analysed many different aspects of each of these Santa’s and there’s even a controversial decision to put one only in an honourable mention – so do let us know your opinions on him being there. Here we go then with our Top 10 Alternative Santa’s in Geekdom.

Killing Floor – Twisted Christmas

Don’t you just hate it when you wake up at the crack of dawn and you realise that Christmas has been ruined once again due to stupidly festive zombies? Well, that seems to happen yearly for fans of the great co-operative horror survival game, Killing Floor.

Twisted Christmas returns

Once again we’re greeted with a brand new map, showing off what these zeds can do when they put their undead minds to matters. Not only that, but we’re greeted once again to the scariest of all zeds out there; the festive holidays zeds.

Killing Floor is a game full of silliness and brains galore, so why not get involved with the festive cheer and have a look through some of this years festivities?

If you played the game last year, not much has changed since then… However, the attitude of the festive season stands strong.

Have you played a horror game with a Christmas twist? Have you ever killed zombies dressed up like Father Christmas before? Do you know of many other games like Killing Floor out there? As always, please comment below and we’ll see you again next time!


Blogversation – Music in horror

With Christmas on the way, I thought now was the perfect time to talk about music in horror. However, I’ve been told it’s much more apt to talk about music in horror because Halloween is slowly approaching us. Go figure.
