But yeah, cool to hear about Silent Hills. Should be interesting to see what Del Toro does for the franchise.

Proof that some major game companies no longer know what the fuck gamers want. (See also: Capcom and Nintendo.)

Maybe from the Japanese sure, but more and more game companies are realizing that Japan doesn't make up 95% of the market.

That whole P.T. teaser thing was pretty ingenious. Maximum "gameplay" out of minimum assets by just reusing the same corridor over and over agin.

Which point? That PT was a series of jump scares, even though there was all of one (maybe two depending on how you define it) jump scare in the entire thing? That the Silent Hill brand of horror is nothing but OH GOD OH GOD OH GOD WHAT IS THAT THING even though that's only part of the Silent Hill tradition, much of the rest being made up of creeping unease and disorientation, which definitely fits with PT? Or perhaps the part where they claimed there was no room for fourth-wall breaking in Silent Hill without saying a single thing to support that outrageous statement.

There's just so many little details I love. Like the moving bloody bag in the starting room, the tallies on the wall, the mirror, the radio saying "hanged himself with a rope he found in the garage" with a demonic faint version under it saying "with an umbilical cord" instead.

If the final game is even half as scary as this, the survival horror genre is back.

The freaking eye in the peephole when you first see it, the Gouge It Out, the fact that it's not explicitly stated what he did to Lisa first in the "call to action".

Even the implication that the baby was the woman's boss'.

There was a two headed cockroach ffs.

That speech at the end got me thinking. Do you think Kojima is going to throw all of the non-Konami Silent Hill games under the bus and call them non canon or do you think he might embrace it or at the very least acknowledge it?

They don't have much else at this point. Their attempt to revitalize Castlevania into a generic Western franchise flopped and despite how much it hurts to admit it, a new Suikoden would sell 12 copies at best.

It was kinda noble though, they were just trying to get Castlevania back on console and kudos to them for making an actually unique combat system even if it took till the second game and was still janky.

Plus at least they had the good sense to only make it a three game deal.

YES!! i havent been talking about them recently because everything has been...really bad. we havent had a good horror game in a loooonnnggg time. i love the silent hill series a lot+was bummed out when it shit the bed from sh:homecoming onward.
this already looks like a REALLY good move back in a direction where the game is actually terrifying while still staying innovative and casting aside the "rules" of silent hill which became tedious and predictable after a while.
even though p.t. is just a very well crafted teaser that has 0 relation to the actual game, the mood they evoked was incredibly effective and gives me a lot of hope

Still a bit salty about him and in Lords of Shadow, whatever he contributed to it. Come on you're famous for filling your games up with homosex and fabulous, and you had a freaking stone mask in a series all about fighting vampires. Not Jojo-ing the fuck out of it was a lost opportunity.

once is fine like Del Taco to be cheeky but then to keep doing it over and over, seems a bit mean spirited.

Also Jesse Cox and friends playing through PT has been the most enjoyable version of it for me. Mainly because they finished and explained how you got the ending.

So, anyone actually has any real proof that it's not going to be a reboot? I mean, I loved every thing about the teaser, and I would love to play a game like that (in 3rd person), but if they are planning to fit into the canon of the first 4, they have a 50% chance of failing, great gameplay notwithstanding.

It's pretty obvious how 1 and 3 tie in together, but otherwise there's not a ton of canon you actually NEED to adhere to.

Is 4 even regarded as canon anyway? IIRC it wasn't even going to be a Silent Hill game, and most people think it's not as good as the first three even if it's still better than all the later ones.
