Final Exam, formerly Obscure, will bring its mix of survival horror and 2D co-op action to the Xbox 360 Games Store, PlayStation Network, and PC on November 8. Final Exam is tied to Hydravision's perhaps ironically named Obscure horror series, developer Mighty Rocket Studio formed from the French...

Do you remember ObsCure? The survival horror game series by Hydravision has become somewhat self-referential, as it has become rather obscure itself in the years since its multiplatform release. Now this game you may not remember is becoming into a sidescrolling action game, one "drenched in the b...

Despite its name, Playlogic is doing it best to ensure that its teen survival horror caper, Obscure: The Aftermath, is anything but hard to find. The publisher announced that in addition to the game's previously mentioned UMD release in September, the company will also release the Obscure sequel f...

Horror is difficult to get across on a portable. After all, if things get too unnerving, you simply toss the system aside and breathe easy. That said, Playlogic is the latest to try its hand at fright on the go, announcing plans to again port Obscure: The Aftermath to yet another platform -- the P...

Most games sound good; after all, someone, somewhere, has to approve them and throw money into the development process, and on paper, Obscure: The Aftermath sounds great.

In speaking with Obscure II's producer Jesse America, Cubed3 brought up the idea of bringing the game to the DS. Why not, right? Everyone else is doing it and the DS is the mackdaddy of cash cows, so we can definitely understand why they would want to bring the game to that platform. And, they jus...

CVG recently posted a pair of trailers for the upcoming Obscure II. These trailers are for the PC version of the game, so the graphics could be different on the Wii, but the gameplay should translate over relatively unchanged. And, based on these new trailers, the game is going to be fairly action...

When we first reported on the sequel coming to the Wii later this year, we found ourselves lacking enthusiasm. After seeing a trailer of the game in action, we can't say we're excited at all for the game. It looks like a lot of the same mundane stuff that comprised the first title. Maybe you don't...

We actually played the first Obscure game and the similarities between it and the teen horror flicks of the late 90's (The Faculty, Disturbing Behavior) were all well and good, just the game itself wasn't very fun. Nor was it very good. Regardless, we're getting a sequel to the game in Q4 of this ye...
