Siding with Patrick here. ANY of the Siren games are outstanding. I cannot recommend them enough for survival horror fans.

I really liked the demo for Blood Curse, but it's a download only title isn't it? I'd buy it if it were an on disc game because I don't think I have room on my PS3 for it and I don't think PSN would download it in any reasonable amount of time.

If your willing to import it, there is a boxed disc copy of the game (that includes bonus making of stuff not available here) that came out in Europe. You shouldn't have any issues playing it, as it doesn't seem to have any region locking.

ALSO, if you're really willing to go down the rabbit hole, the first game, called just Siren (of which the PS3 one is a kind of 'redo', but the first is still totally worth playing) came out in North America for PS2. And the second game, Forbidden Siren 2, while it only came out in Europe and Japan, is totally worth importing and playing on a modified PS2 or emulator.

I think you will find that the Siren series offers up one of the creepiest and most disturbing horror experiences you can get in gaming. Something of note though: since they were localized to Europe, get used to Japanese people with British accents. :)

I found the Siren series to be incredibly creepy and sightjacking makes the game even more scary (shibito make the most disturbing sounds and have creeper heavy breathing) than it is helpful

the visuals don't look bad if they were stills. but the framerate issues really F them up.

Talk-down-not-teach-up HUD tips are the product of subpar design and should end.

Posted by lwppopz

The controls seem as clunky as the Alone the dark game on the xbox 360. Damn the controls were so bad in that game, I just gave up playing it after awhile.

Great quick look you's guys

Posted by Eraser74

Wow, this is just a piece of crap game. Horrible graphics, not scary at all and just overall plain bad.

Don´t know who will pay money to play this.

I think the reason why Lana encourages AMY so much when she does something like push a button is because AMY is autistic.

I really don't see how they didn't get that. I know/knew nothing of this game and immediately got the 'she's autistic' vibe.

Use the PC term man! She is verbally challenged. Also, perceptionally challenged. Also... mentally challenged.

...why didn't they just say autistic?

What is up with the weird pig squeal when on the "you died" screen? What is this, a Plinkett review?

35:55-36:04 - LMAO @Vinny's reference to Congo "Amy loves Peter. Amy wants apple."

Overall that was one of the better QLs I've seen in a while. Shitty game, but good commentary resulted because of it =)

Posted by Nightriff

I'm hoping to see a review of this game soon

Posted by deerokus

so 23 minutes in: how did Amy move the massive crates aside to hide in the toilet, then put them back in front of the door?

Lana,

If you're going to try to sneak away from a monster. Don't wear heels doing so.

She must have forgotten her bug out bag.

This is the funniest quick look in a long time, one of my absolute favourites now.

Marcello is the white version of Tisha from the new Deus Ex." Well sheeeeit Cap'n, I beeze right here waitin" vs. "Ladies foist." Which is the lamer stereotype?

Do not trust this QL, try the free demo.

@PsychedelicBrog:

DUDE

considering all of those except D.P. are considered to be great games, then combining the bad bits of those will still make this at least an OK game ;p

Posted by MeldingPlague

Hm. Looks like it needed more development time. Everything's all wibbly-wobbly.

Also, Congo references? Niiice.

I played the demo of this before watching the Quick Look. Why would you design the radar to follow the character's orientation and not the camera's?

Posted by iWonder

Broken checkpoints, broken combat, broken item repopulation, broken framerate? WHAAAAAAT?! Oh man, fuck this game.

Story looks good, though. Which just makes it all the more disappointing!

I think I might get this now. ...Great!

Posted by zityz

This seams like a interesting idea that wasn't flushed out maybe due to money or time limitations. I'm sure with a little polish in the right hands and maybe some length, this could be good and have potential. I'm getting a real Silent Hill vibe off of this.

I'm watching a livestream of the PSN version and it doesn't have any of the screen tearing or framerate dropping that is in this (Xbox Live) version.

This was painful to watch... Patrick was making it look far harder, clunkier, and just generally more broken than the game actually is.

There also appears to be a fair amount of confusion about what this game is... It is NOT a horror survival game! The game is in fact a puzzle game, with a VERY simple fighting mechanic.

To first address the puzzle aspect... everything seen in this video is just the tutorial... and basically Patrick calls an end to the video at the very first puzzle... where the game actually begins... In other words, what is seen in the video is not a good representation of how the game plays out.

As for the combat... It really is just a simplified version of the Assassins Creed fighting engine... You simply just keep bashing the dodge button until you see your opening, then bash the attack button... it's actually quite hard to die, and certainly not as broken as it appears in this video, or as hard as Patrick was making it look.

However, having said that, i'm not under an delusion that this is a "great" game or anything... I just don't feel it is as bad as reviewers and this video make it out to be... For 800pts (£7) it kept me entertained for a couple of days, and i've certainly paid higher for worse games from XBLA.

Yeah sure, they played for an hour and didn't get past the "tutorial". Brilliant mate.

Darn it. Was hoping Patrick was being limited to Endurance Runs I don't watch :|

Good thing he doesn't star in Norwegian scat porn, you would have absolutely nothing to do.

Oh how I laughed, there were tears. Absolutely.

"I think I have a pretty good grasp on AMY so far..."

That sentence sounds wrong on so many levels...

1. Die from the first enemy who takes one or two hits to kill because you're acting like a @#!*% with the controls.

2. Complain about how the very simple combat system is terrible.

3. Intentionally mislead people about the quality of the game and how it is supposed to be played.

SERIOUSLY!? You can only hide behind the "everybody has their own experience" argument for so long. This is like me making a video where I play Forza 4, and just run the car into the wall the whole time and say the racing is terrible.

I've universally heard that it's unresponsive and controls like crap. Sure didn't seem like they were being misleading.

The game look good and the story seems interesting. But I don`t like the combat.

This game doesn't look anywhere as bad as the reviews have made it seem.

Weirdly enough, I have flashbacks of Morooka. Thank you good o' Chello...

Posted by PsychedelicBrog

this game combines the worst parts of ICO, Deadly Premonition, Metal Gear and Deadspace

Posted by avidwriter

He just mentioned weapons don't res-pawn but he went and picked up that weapon again.... what? If that happens it seems like maybe he's continuing after his death rather then reloading?

Posted by SAYNTofSYNNERS

ACTUALLY it is kind of a fun game.

Patrick is playing it poorly and incorrectly, then moaning it is the games fault

Kinda like the idiots that tried to play RESIDENT EVIL 5 as GEARS OF WAR and hating Resi because of it.
