    Did you know there is one last Splatterhouse game on both PS3/X360? It’s called just Splatterhouse and is a modern reboot of the franchise. Played through it recently, quite a fun game as well! 🙂

      YES! i hope they close off the splatterhouse saga with that game next! if they think this is gory, they’re in for a huge surprise!

      The hell are you talking about? They’re not “acting”. They’re literally just playing a video game and talking during it. Wow you’re stupid.

    Watching you guys not getting how clever the time limit system in this game actually is is such a pain in the ass hahahah.

      Lol ikr, I got the impression you’re not supposed to be able to beat the time limit. heh

        You’ve got to know the game damn well and to play extra fast to beat the time limit, but it’s entirely possible. Beating the time limit allows you to save the main character’s wife and their kid and stuff like that. The ending you get depends on your various success through the levels, it’s just super cool and allows beginners to get familiar with the game while getting a true “bad” ending instead of a dull “game over” even if they didn’t played like pro gamers. That might be the best way I’ve seen in a beat em up to add real replay value, it’s smart as hell !

    As soon as this franchise went from a 2d side scroller to this it all went downhill for me. Also the reboot on 360/PS3 was horrible, it had a choppy frame rate, terrible voice acting and broken gameplay mechanics and was a chore to play, it would make a good avgn episode for its shear badness.

    Namco didn’t fuck around and the Genesis wasn’t for pussys.

    No comment about how it looks like the character comes back to life by having a ghost go into his dick? Disappointing…

    This game needs Bubbles the monkey to come in and help with directions.

    Actually there was some fuss over this series at the time, the arcade version got pulled quickly because of parents. Because of that, it ended up quite an obscure title, so that’s why it got overlooked for things like Mortal Kombat and Night Trap.

    Just a sidenote, like the broken back elbow in double dragon,

    if (while facing an enemy) do back,forward+attack you’ll do a spin kick that gives invincibility, hurts really bad and doesn’t even take damage from your health bar.

    additionally, if you are in monster rick mode, you can do back,forward,back+ attack and he will shoot limbs out of his body that reach extremely far, and do tons of damage, while also giving invincibility. makes the game worlds easier. Hope that helps when you play again guys

    “There are four possible endings, depending on if you save Jennifer and David, save one or the other, or fail to save them both. All but the best ending start out with the Mask saying he’ll continue to exist as long as there’s human suffering, and as he shatters, it says how the sky has cleared, and that evil has once again been banished. The endings are as follow.

    Bad Ending: If Rick fails to save both his wife and child, the ending goes as usual, but it states that Rick “stands alone, the weight of failure hanging heavily on him”. It then shows a picture of him and his family, with the words “Alone. All alone…”

    Jennifer Dies: If Rick fails to save Jennifer, but rescues David, it shows the ending as normal, but that Jennifer “exists only as a memory”. It then shows David asking his dad where his mother is, and fades after that.

    David Dies: If Jennifer is rescued, but David dies, the ending goes on as usual, but with David “being only a memory”. Jennifer then asks Rick where David is, and after being told (though the dialog isn’t shown), she cries out “no”.

    Good Ending: Should both survive, the ending is different. Apart from a more pleasant tune, the mask’s dialog changes. Instead of saying that he’ll survive, he cries out “Can’t see… can’t hear… I’m dying…!!” before shattering. It continues as normal, saying Rick returns to his family, finally free of the Terror Mask.”

    The time limit effects how the story plays out, which gave the game lots of replay value to see all the different cutscenes. This is why there’s so much stuff that just wastes your time opposed to out right killing you.

    Play Gargoyles, the Genesis exclusive about the beautiful Disney animated series. It’s dynamic, fun and very halloween-esque.

    You guys should do Cyborg Justice. Only game you can reanimate your enemies, rip their limbs off, and also pull their torsos off and absorb their energy like a robot highlander. Fuck yea

  • October 14, 2015 at 12:20 am

    hey i got a game for you guys affected the horror experience for the oculus rift

  • October 14, 2015 at 9:45 am

    This game looks badass. I missed out on the Genesis goodness growing up.

  • October 14, 2015 at 3:15 pm

    You guys should play Talespin on the NES, fucking hard!

    I actually thought this one was a lot harder than two. I got to about where you guys are in this one, but I made it to the last boss in 2.

    I know you guys had the Power, Nintendo Power. But, if you read Game Pro Magazine, you would have heard about the Splatter House series, amongst others.

    This game started out easy, but it didn’t stay that way! It’s really freaky and gory, too. Awesome game.

    I just got the Xbox 360 “Splatterhouse”. I’m sorry I never played the original games. 360 version is awesome. Also, you can unlock the original games, too. Looking forward to that!

    While I totally agree with James where the SNES has a superior library of great games compared to the Genesis, I can’t help but feel that he’s sort of coming at it from a collector’s perspective. Where he has pretty much all the titles already and he can easily compare the libraries side by side.

    And he isn’t wrong – but when I was a kid, everyone I knew only had like 10 games stored in a shoebox or something. Not many kids at the time knew what the entire library of Genesis or SNES games were like.
