Forget Fatal Frame and Silent Hill - Deadly Creatures is the scariest damn video game I've ever seen, and it's only just been announced. THQ and Rainbow Studios are collaborating on this Wii monstrosity, an adventure game that follows the story of a disgusting scorpion and terrifying tarantula as they struggle to survive in a world filled with even deadlier creatures, like Gila monsters, tarantula wasps, and man. As a screaming like a girl, turning pale as a sheet, cold sweats getting arachnophobe, I'm not getting anywhere near this game. You can't make me.
