Eric Vs. 365 - Day 109 - Silent Hill 3

For day 109 of Eric Vs. 365, and our fifth horror video for October, we ramp up the scary with a visit to good old Silent Hill. Silent Hill 3, to be precise. Eric has quite a history with this series, in that he has no history with it at all. Fooled ya! Click to read why and watch gameplay right here.

Eric Vs. 365 - Day 108 - Party Hard

Day 108 features the fantastic Party Hard. It doesn't really seem like a horror game at first glance thanks to the thumping soundtrack and neon tinted visuals, but the twist is you're the one doing the murdering this time around instead of getting chased, so it more than qualifies.

Eric Vs. 365 - Day 107 - Resident Evil Dead Aim

We know now that light guns plus Resident Evil is a solid combination thanks to the Chronicles games on Wii and PS3, but before that Capcom tried (and tried) various formulas to far less success. Resident Evil Dead Aim on PS2 from 2003 was my first taste of light gun Resident Evil, and it was kind of a mess. Click to read more and watch (non light gun ... crazy, right?) gameplay right here.

Eric Vs. 365 - Day 106 - DOOM '93

Not sure if you knew this, but the original Doom is still really freaking good. It's just mindless and satisfying demon blasting that stays out of your way and lets you have fun with it. Compared to "AAA" games today that ruin the pacing with sad dad cinematics and plodding gameplay, the original Doom is a breath of fast paced fresh air. Contrary to loud mouth dummies on the Internet, the 2019 console ports are just fine, too. Click to read more and watch gameplay.

Eric Vs. 365 - Day 105 - World War Z

Kicking off 19 days of horror games as part of Eric Vs. 365 - and day 105 overall - is World War Z. This co-op zombie shooter is sort of a bootleg Left 4 Dead, but is fun enough for fans looking to kill some zambos with their friends. Plus, it's on Game Pass so there's no reason not to give it a try. Click to read more and watch gameplay.

Eric Vs. 365 - Day 104 - Pure Chess

When you're a smart kid the world has different expectations for you. You "like" school (I didn't), you can fix everyone's computer (I couldn't), you're too intelligent for sports (I love sports), and you're supposed to be good at chess (I wasn't). It wasn't for a lack of trying on that last one, but it just never really clicked. With expectations now properly set, today's game for Eric Vs. 365 is Pure Chess for Xbox One.

Eric Vs. 365 - Day 103 - Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo HD Remix

Nothing like a puzzle game when you need to pump out a quick and easy video. Even better when it looks great and is super entertaining like Super Puzzle Fighter II HD. I seriously love pretty much everything about this game. Click to read more and watch today's video.

Eric Vs. 365 - Day 102 - NBA Jam On Fire Edition

EA Sports' NBA Jam reboot was a pretty darn fun new take on NBA Jam and then they just, like, forgot about it for some reason. They decided to keep making crappy NBA Live games that no one wanted instead, and that's a shame. For day 102 of Eric Vs. 365 we played NBA Jam On Fire Edition and had loads of fun. What we want to talk about in this blog, however, is being a fan of teams that never win. Come along and join us.

Eric Vs. 365 - Day 101 - Tetris NES

Tetris for NES is one of my earliest video game memories. I was entranced by the awesome music and changing colors of the pieces and, of course, the addictive and satisfying puzzle gameplay. I'm talking Nintendo's Tetris, not the poopy Tengen Tetris that hipsters like to try to convince everyone is better, by the way. That got your attention, didn't it.
