Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem News
Here are our picks, but what are yours?
Another week has come to an end, and that can only mean one thing - the weekend is upon us, in all its glory. Some of you might be off relaxing, some of you might have work, but there's still going to be a little time for some Switch, 3DS or Wii U-based gaming. So, to get you in the mood for a little virtual...
Possible virtual console release on the Switch?
Fans of Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem have had a rough decade. While the franchise lays dormant from Nintendo, a spiritual successor titled Shadows of the Eternal was to be developed (by ex-Silicon Knights devs) for the Wii U. Unfortunately it didn't hit an adequate amount of funding via...
"Getting Nintendo to sign off on game elements was difficult"
Out of all gaming genres, horror is the one that few would directly associate with Nintendo. After all, its flagship titles largely use brilliantly chirpy and loveable characters in settings that maintain a family-friendly approach and mass appeal. But throughout its history, Nintendo has...
A race that may never end
Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem wasn't a commercial smash hit on GameCube, but it certainly had a notable impact on those that experienced it, becoming a name that still causes ripples of excitement among some Nintendo fans. Its unique approach and meta-elements delivered some genuine creativity, establishing it as a...
GameCube and Wii titles that could make the cut
Just recently we published a list of five Nintendo 64 games we'd love to play on 3DS, inspired by the recent arrival of The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask 3D and its remastered predecessors, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D and Star Fox 64 3D
"Product or service research or development" is an "ongoing effort"
Some of you may have heard this before — Nintendo has renewed a trademark application for Eternity Darkness, the highly regarded GameCube title that pushed boundaries and provided a unique experience on the console. The latest renewal, the second of this particular record, has...
Will the spiritual successor to Eternal Darkness finally be released?
Dennis Dyack, former president of the now defunct Canadian-based developer, Silicon Knights, has announced the formation of a new entertainment company titled, Quantum Entanglement Entertainment Inc., also abbreviated to,“QE2.” The new company will focus on the development of...
Easy wins and fan favourites
In a turn of events that shouldn't surprise any followers of Nintendo, an anonymous source of reasonable repute has recently been quoted as stating that a big-name HD remaster is on the way to Wii U in 2015. We'd suggest this isn't too far off from saying something rather obvious such as "Nintendo is making games that...
Precursor Games announces the team will be "taking a break"
Precursor Games has had a couple of stabs at crowdfunding Shadow of the Eternals, which is pitched as a spiritual successor to the GameCube classic Eternal Darkness and was aiming for a Wii U release. The first attempt involved two campaigns that ran parallel to each other, one on the...
Precursor's chief creative hopes to give players the power of development
Silicon Knights' Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem was hands-down one of the Gamecube's most memorable gems. Its tale of unimaginable death and woe through the ages was all well and good for a horror game in the style of author HP Lovecraft, but the title really carved a name...
Adds downloadable options
Don’t worry, your sanity meter is full: Nintendo has in fact filed a new trademark for Eternal Darkness: Sanity’s Requiem that suggests a possibility of seeing the 2002 GameCube title in download form. According to Siliconera, Nintendo filed the new trademark with the United States Patent and Trademark Office on 23rd...
Let's not get our hopes up
We reported last week that Shadow of the Eternals - the "spiritual successor" to GameCube spook-'em-up title Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem - would make its way to the Wii U next year should its crowdfunding campaign prove to be a success. We know developer
A sequel could yet see the light of day
Released in 2002 on the GameCube, survival horror title Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem became an instant cult classic. Since then there have been glimpses of evidence that a sequel would eventually come to be, but up to now it hasn't happened. The game has come excruciatingly close to a sequel and now,...
Less than five staffers remain
After the critical disaster that was X-Men Destiny, things were looking pretty bleak for developer Silicon Knights. However, a recent report by Kotaku — based on interviews with former staff members — reveals just how bad things have become. The studio is believed to have less than five employees, including company...
Jon celebrates the 10th anniversary of this cult horror classic by losing his mind, in more ways than one
Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem is one of those games whose cult status has snowballed since it hit in 2002, and with good reason. As a fairly innovative horror game from Silicon Knights and Nintendo, it kept players on their toes for its...
Moments of gaming horror
Halloween is almost upon us, with many gamers making plans for a night of terrifying gaming. Whether these are modern titles or retro, old-school goodness, there are plenty of scary games to enjoy. In the first part of our Fun and Frights feature, we gave a brief outline of how horror games have developed through the...
How horror has evolved
At this time of year, it’s no doubt common practice for many gamers to find their favourite scary game, turn off the lights and get into the Halloween mood. There’s something about frightful gaming experiences that's unique in the entertainment industry. Unlike horror movies or tense, nerve-wracking books, video game fear...
Not for the faint of heart
Halloween is now just one week away, while many horrors await: ghosts, zombies, children in masks demanding sweets and candy. Up to now we've focussed on Resident Evil and Castlevania, but now we're just looking for thrills to take us to the darkest night of the year. To get us started we decided to produce a list of games...
Be afraid. Be very afraid
Halloween is upon us. We've been celebrating Spook Month for the past thirty-one days, with reviews of frightening or fright-themed retro games every Friday and Saturday, and after a good bout of trick-or-treating or dressing up to go to Rocky Horror, we'll be sitting down to some of our favourites that make us cringe, jump...
Frightful Fridays and Scary Saturdays ahead
As we all know, October 31st is All Hallows Eve, popularly known as Halloween. It's a night when some of you will dress up in your favourite fear-inducing garb and haunt the town, others will dress up as well but instead go to screenings of The Rocky Horror Picture Show, and others still will stay home and watch Ernest Scared Stupid. It's also a month..
Is there light at the end of the tunnel for this Gamecube classic?
Kotaku.com spotted the re-upping for the trade mark of the highly lauded GameCube title, Eternal Darkness. That means ... what, exactly? Nintendo is considering a new title for the Wii? Can you imagine motion control to deal with Sanity effects? Or is this just Nintendo squatting on...
Given the GameCube's wonderful back-catalogue, here are five games we'd love to see come to the Wii. The PlayStation 2 had already run away with the “console war crown" a good year or so before the GameCube's launch and Nintendo's box never really packed any kind of punch worthy enough of denting Sony's dominance. With Microsoft...
