Layers of Fear is a tale of a painter going mad. He’s had it rough and at one point decides to start a final ambitious project to fix everything, or destroy the little that’s left.
The game follows this project through the eyes of an artist slowly losing it. I highly recommend the game, there are a couple of jump scares but not too much to spoil the mood. It also doesn’t have too much playtime in it, maybe 6 hours, depends how much you explore and search for clues of your past etc. The game is meant to be experienced, not just to run through (that would be a lot faster than 6 hours).
Anyway, get it on sale and you will have a good run for your money.
1997 was the year another game was banned or censored in Germany.. And

Well they had a good reason. Carmageddon was violent as hell and made in extremely bad taste including killing pedestrians, bad language, sexual references and other violent content. Which was the reason an emotionless bastard like me liked it so much.
The game was soon forgotten though until a few years back when Stainless Software made an Android version of the game. Which is great btw. Soon after came Carmageddon: Reincarnation and after that the improved and actually playable version Carmageddon: Max Damage with improved… everything. It has a lot of content and it’s a must have for any Carmageddon fan or maybe anyone!
Also it’s one of the few racing games today that has soft body damage modeling (your car or any other can brake in half for example). It’s actually part of the fun to inspect the opponents’ cars after the race and see the damage you’ve done.
I currently have about 35hrs on this one. Haven’t even tried the multiplayer. 😀
I’ve been a huge fan of the Hitman series since it first came out in 2001. Loved it then. Of course no game feels as immersive today as they did when you were 15yrs old but I still think Hitman has a nice idea and backstory and it has kept its value pretty well apart from the fiasko that was Absolution.
The reboot is right back to the roots of the series and with the newly introduced chance of actually missing an opportunity to execute a target if you hesitate, IO Software has actually found something new to insert in the game.
There are of course other changes that have been made but it’s pretty much the solid good old Hitman we all know and love. Personally I’ve grown somewhat impatient over the years of gaming and constantly notice that I no longer possess the nerve to carefully evaluate every opportunity to kill a target nor do I wait in an alley to find out what paths do each of the guards take to achieve perfect timing for silent assassin excellence. But that’s my problem not the games’.
Pictures below are not from the whole first season since I haven’t passed it yet. 🙂 It sure is pretty though.
