What with its lingering financial worries and loss of licenses, Atari is a lot like a three-legged dog seen limping pitifully to the side of the road. We want to help, we do, but we've already got a perfectly good dog at home with all four legs intact. With so much hardship, it's evident that much...

You know that feeling you get when your gut just tells you something is going to be good? It's usually wrong in the end, but until you know for sure it's just a great means to power the hype train? We've got that feeling about Alone in the Dark. Because they scrapped using a subtitle or a numerical ...

Atari Inc. plans to report a loss of $71.3 million for their fiscal year which ended March 31. This is up from the $69 million loss from the previous fiscal year. Most of the loss is due to some jargon regarding an "impairment of goodwill," relating to a significant erosion of their market capitaliz...

ProG says they've got some release dates straight from Atari UK, with the shocker being Alone in the Dark scheduled for release on the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC this November. We haven't heard about that game in ages, other than a mention that the author of Sleepers had come on board, but we'll take th...

Previously, we've gushed about the game's visuals and fell head over heals for the trailer. And now we have a release month for when we can expect more. Atari just announced that Alone in the Dark 5 will release on the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC sometime this November (with its buddy Assassin's Creed). If...

The upcoming Alone in the Dark title has a lot to compete with when released late this year or early next year, but it still looks like a step in the right direction for the original survival horror game. Presented in New York with a fictional story ... timeline ... thing, the game sounds kind of li...

As I've probably said before, prior to this installment of Alone in the Dark, I was never really interested in it. Sure, it was the original survival horror title, but it just wasn't Resident Evil. Anyway, someone over at the PS3 Forums took it upon themself to up two wallpaper-worthy crazy/beautifu...

The latest entry in the survival horror series sees Edward Carnby fighting for his life in Central Park. We'll get an episodic story a...

It's time for another flowery post on a game that I'm personally excited about. We're talking about Alone in the Dark -- headed to the PS3, 360, and PC "later this year". We've talked about it a few times before, but we haven't had anything really exciting to show you other than our fantastic mad wr...

If there is one thing that the Xbox 360 needs more of, it's survival horror games. Today, we're proud to display the latest trailer for Alone in the Dark 5. We've shown off some creepy screens before, but it's always better to see a game in motion, especially when it's this pretty. You'll probabl...

On a personal tangent, I'm really excited about this game. Lately, I've been very interested in the more "adventure" side of things -- it was the crux of my decision to purchase a DS Lite (games like Phoenix Wright, Hotel Dusk, Lost in Blue really influenced and affirmed my interest). With that i...

Are you ready for some business-related math? While it may be attributed to the translation of the page (my browser screws up... if yours pauses for a minute and asks you to stop the script or continue... just stop it), the release date for the upcoming title Alone in the Dark is difficult to unders...

Anti-filmmaker Uwe Boll has beaten another one of his critics completely senseless -- and this time it was in a boxing ring, not a darkened cinema. Richard "Lowtax" Kyanka of Something Awful infamy was the second to fall to the raging Boll's flying fists in a PR-driven series of boxing matches. Like...

According to Eden Studios, the term "survival-horror" needs to be replaced with story-driven action. At least for Alone in the Dark, which is shaping up to be very, very cool looking. Why? It takes player immersion to the next level with the inventory pocket system -- the main character has a gun in...

Widely known for his anti-masterpieces, House of the Dead, Bloodrayne and Alone in the Dark, German film director Uwe Boll drew plenty of internet ire in June by sending out a public challenge to his (many, many) detractors. Like any civilized and intelligent human being, Boll decided that the best ...

Atari was dealt some pretty bad numbers the past year -- losses were at their highest in a while overall. This is partially why the next-gen iteration of Alone in the Dark has been pushed back to mid-2007, maybe into 2008. Atari does anticipate the title to be their big game for next year and let's ...

A month ago, Uwe Boll put up a call to critics to "put up or shut up!" The plan was to have the ill-reputed game director fly the brave souls who "put up" to Vancouver to enter a boxing ring with him (so far, we know of one critic who took the call). The matches will be filmed, shown on the internet...

Feast your eyes on some saucy new screenshots for Alone in the Dark. While Atari hasn't officially come out and confirmed it for PS3, other sources have hinted at it coming to the Sony machine. Taking that into consideration, we don't have a solid release date, but it'd be nice to see it in Novembe...

Eden Games has decided to adopt an episodic format for its next-gen horror sequel, Alone in the Dark. The game will be chopped into episodes, each containing 30–40 minutes of gameplay that ends with a cliffhanger and a preview of things to come. In addition, each episode will be preceded by a ...
