Outlast 2

Tom’s top three games of 2017

Wow, another year has gone by already? I guess I should have noticed due to the mania at the shopping centres and another mediocre Star Wars movie screening in cinemas (don’t @ me). I suppose that means it’s time to make an obligatory Game of the Year list. And for me personally, 2017 is a hard year to pick a top three from because to be honest, there weren’t that many mind blowi...[Read More]

What Outlast 2 could’ve done better

This article is riddled with spoilers, consider this your warning! Back in early April when it looked like Outlast 2 wasn’t getting an Australian release due to a bit of dodgy content that our classification board wasn’t terribly keen on, I couldn’t have been more disappointed. The first Outlast is one of my favourite horror games of all time, screaming my head off, sprinting from Chris Walker, un...[Read More]

Outlast 2 review: Your cardio workout for the week

Reviewed on: PC. Copy supplied by publisher. Come on Tom, I thought, squatting anxiously in a barrel for what seemed like the millionth time during my playthrough of Outlast 2. You haven’t got much battery power left for your camera, and the more you use it to locate that lunatic stalking you, the sooner you’ll have none left at all. Either you hop out now and risk soiling yourself in ...[Read More]

Outlast 2 was banned because devs submitted the wrong footage

Wow, this story just keeps getting weirder and weirder. First Outlast 2 was refused classification by the Australian Classification Board due to a scene that depicted implied sexual assault, then it was reclassified a week later assumingly unmodified. Then the Board said it had been modified while developer Red Barrels said only “one version of Outlast 2” would be available worldwide, ...[Read More]

Whoops, looks like Outlast 2 has been edited after all

I was super shocked and excited to learn this morning that Outlast 2 had been reclassified to R18+ in Australia, both because it was a surprise and also because it marked the second time I’d written a think piece about our classification system’s issues and it being followed by a positive change (the first time being GTA V being slightly reclassified soon after a 2015 article I wrote f...[Read More]

Australia’s classification problems run deeper than Outlast 2

This article discusses sexual assault. By now you’ve probably heard the news that swept across Australian video gaming channels last week: Outlast 2 has been refused classification in Australia. I know, I’m disappointed too. It was refused classification because it depicted implied sexual violence. I’ll spare you the explicit details, you can read them here if you so wish, but the scen...[Read More]

The reason Outlast 2 was refused classification makes sense

Okay, maybe I was a bit quick to jump the gun with slamming the Australian Classification Board earlier today. After it came to light that Outlast 2 was refused classification, my Jimmies were well and truly rustled. But, maybe in this instance, they were onto something. As reported by Alex Walker over at Kotaku Australia, who received a detailed explanation of the scene that triggered the refusal...[Read More]

Outlast 2 has been refused classification in Australia

Outlast 2, which is due for an April 25th release, has been refused classification by Australia’s Classification Board, despite the introduction of an R rating in 2013. We’ve been here before, so it’s kind of disheartening to keep writing about the issue. The reason the Australian Classification Board gave this time round, according to their site, is because horror game Outlast 2...[Read More]

Outlast 2 is coming to make you soil yourself next month

After a disappointing delay last year, Outlast 2 is now closed to being within our grasp. Developer Red Barrels today announced the follow up to their 2013 horror classic is launching digitally worldwide April 25. Better budget for extra laundry powder and water consumption that week, what with all the shitting yourself you’re going to be doing. Red Barrels made the announcement on Twitter t...[Read More]

Outlast 2 has been delayed

You’d better go out and get some laxatives to take care of those stomach gurgles, because Outlast 2 won’t be coming anytime soon to alleviate your colon. In a post on the game’s Facebook page, developer Red Barrels confirmed they were delaying the game until Q1 2017. It’s a classic case of “it’ll be ready when it’s done”, with the developer saying th...[Read More]

Outlast 2 gameplay trailers drop online and they’re creepy as balls

Hope you have a spare set of underwear handy, because the first gameplay videos from Outlast 2 have appeared online and they’re looking gorgeous and ripe for a pants soiling. Developed by Red Barrels, the anticipated horror sequel has shifted from its insane asylum roots to an equally creepy outdoor, hicks-ville farm type location. The first trailer shows the protagonist finding themselves l...[Read More]

Horror games to look forward to in 2016

  It’s that time of year again – the holiday season is over, the festivities that come with it have concluded and inevitably we turn our attention to the new year and what we hope to see or accomplish before December is upon us again.
