Dark Light

This week’s Nintendo eShop line-up includes Resident Evil 4, Slender: The Arrival and The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth.

Halloween is coming, and that means three things:

  1. Tortured Halloween puns everywhere, especially people’s Twitter handles
  2. Pumpkin spiced lattes. Everywhere. The streets are nasty with that stuff.
  3. Publishers will be trotting out any horror-related title they can find.

Sometimes that’s a bad thing. You end up with hastily drawn up press releases about horror-themed things that aren’t even out yet, lots of formulaic top down zombie shooters like Escape From Zombie City, and inevitably, something about bloody Slenderman (although, to be fair, Slender: The Arrival actually looks like the first Slenderman game that isn’t out-and-out terrible, so kudos on that one).

But there’s often some good stuff, too, and in horror terms it doesn’t come much better than Resident Evil 4 Wii Edition making its way onto Wii U at last.

Oh, and The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth, which is also brilliant.

Here’s the full list.
