Allison Road is a indie game that gained notoriety right after P.T.,
the playable trailer by Hideo Kojima was pulled and Silent Hills cancelled.

Five Nights at Freddy’s Lands Director –

fourth installment being released last week it seems there will be more to come.

Five Night at Freddy’s Creator Responds to Haters –
Scott Cawthon, like you or I is a regular person. He’s had the lame day job,
but then one day created something everyone loved.
He then continued this and came out with a sequel to his hit game,
and another, and another. Because of this, and the lack
that some have in the original Five Night’s at Freddy’s
he’s garnished a bit of hate. He has now responded to the hate,
the best way you can. While I may not be super
interested in the game series myself, I’m not gonna hate
the guy for what he’s done for himself. Keep on wizardin‘ Scott.

As we get closer to the release of the Resident Evil 0 Remake, Capcom
has reached out to fans to figure out what the hubbub about Resident
Evil 2 is all about. It’s been years that fans have been asking for a RE2
Remake so Capcom thought what’s better than engaging the fanbase.
Personally, I’m both welcoming to a remake, but also not demanding
one. I still own the original, so hey, I can go either way.
