SCEA Pre-E3 Judge’s Day: Siren: Blood Curse is Super Creepy

Now this is one freaky ass game right here, folks. Well actually, Siren: Blood Curse isn’t so much a game, it’s an episodic downloadable series of 12 individual episodes that’ll be releasing this summer exclusively via the PlayStation Network. Never got around to playing the original Siren much, but after seeing all this new media, including the trailer and screens located after the break, I’m 100% sold. I do sorta wish there was going to be a Blu-ray version too, but I’ll get over it.
