It’s scary, alright! To make matters worse, the employees standing guard at the door kept playing with the lights as a handful of journalists played, individually, on a collection of PS4s and Xbox Ones. Despite my proclivities for PC (keyboard & mouse or die and all that) I deposited myself in front of an Xbox One and donned its fancy headphones. Slapping those cans around my protruding flaps of cartilage and flesh I quickly slipped into the survival-horror world that is The Evil Within.
Instantly hit with a trippy experience involving a black-and-white screen showcasing a sunflower morphing into a bipedal banshee I knew I was in for an experience. One to set some hairs on end, emasculate me publicly and generally appreciate the ability to turn on lights at a clap. Seconds after this realization I was deposited into a reduced palette of colors in front of a mansion. In the woods.
The Evil Within release date moved up. Now 10-14-14. #QuakeCon
