Fright Night Special

October 31, 2008 | In Defcon | Comments Off

Well tonight is the night that all the freaks, spooks and ghosts come out to play, which basically means that AtariBuff can actually walk the streets at night and have everyone comment on his fantastic costume (even though he is not wearing one). Yes guys and ghouls is Halloween Night! Time to go trick or treating, make yourself sick on sweets, and general cause a nuisance to anyone that wants a quiet night of it.

So how do you round off a night of spooking? Well how about this. Turn off all the lights, open a window to let a chill wind in and throw one of these ghastly apparitions into your PS1 and try and scare yourself silly. Yes that’s right, he comes Defcon’s recommendations for a good nights fright!!!

Evil Dead

Ok lets start off with something that might scare you, but will more likely make you laugh your butt off. Evil Dead Hail To The King. Playing as the king of horror comedy himself, Ash, you get to throw out all the witty one liners that you like as you plough through the undead scourge that plagues you during a night of havoc and bloodshed. But remember ‘This is my BOOMSTICK!!!!’

Resident Evil

The epitome of survival horror! Just throw one of the series into your console and get ready for frights a plenty. The hands through the wall. The zombie dogs. Nemesis himself. It doesn’t matter, how and it doesn’t matter where but at some point Resident Evil will make you jump out of your skin.

One for your classic horror fans here as old fangboy takes pride of place in his gothic sanctuary. Everything is included here, old Romania gypsies, deserted medieval villages, and even vampire bats. Can you mess with the Dark Lord and get away with it?

Alone In The Dark

Old creepy mansion full of undead? Needs investigating you say? No one else to do it? Well I guess I am in then. The tried and tested ‘errr don’t go in there buddy, its full of raving madmen’ gets played out to the full in Alone In The Dark. Of course like a classic Hollywood movie you never think to turn the damn lights on do you?

Ok so there are few fright makers that might scare you up a treat should you decide to play them. What will old Defcon be playing though? Well my night’s entertainment is looking like this.

Alien Ressurection

When I first played this is scared the bejesus out of me, and that was in daylight, with other people around, and a big dog sat by my side. This time it might be a little different what with the lights out and the mad axeman running through my house (see LadyDefcon). The alien setting does nothing for putting your mind at ease, with dripping goo lining the walls, as you run through the corridors of alien infested spaceships. And of course the moment you first come across an alien, you pants change to a funny shade of brown.

Silent Hill

If I manage to get through Alien ok then I think I am going to plump for the weird one. Silent Hill in my eyes is the best horror game to be released on the PS1. The visual style of the game is just fantastic, the story compelling, and the enemies are so weird that they scare you to death. And the static! On a silent night, in the dark, when that radio kicks up. Well lets just say its enough to keep you regular!!

Detective Mouse

DEAR GOD NO!!!!!!!!!!!

Hee hee well hopefully your night will be as good as mine, and scares a plenty will be had. But just remember, when its all said and done, there is nothing under the bed, or in the closet, or down the basement. The bogeyman doesn’t want to eat your soul, and yes AtariBuff is just that ugly!!

Oh and feel free to throw your thoughts up on the forums, what will you be playing for a good scare tonight?

Goodnight folks, sweet dreams
