I would like to discuss it

I'm worried about what Team Silent said about setting SH5 in a "sunny" environment

Also, what's that second movie gonna be about, huh

    I like number three the most because that chick was pretty hot.

    Plus the graphic design and stuff.

    a lot of people who have played the games are iffy on the actual plot

    man i hate the fact that they're putting origins on the psp because i'm not gonna buy the thing just for that but the game itself doesn't look that promising anyway

    I have wanted to play the games for quite some time.

    I have SH3 on PC and have ported SH1 to my PSP. But I still can't seem to find the time to play them. I should though.

    I remember playing the demo of the first game when you were outside of the school. I remember hearing static come on the radio and then a baby came out of nowhere and started walking towards me.

    I turned off the Playstation and never touched that disc again.

    It's never been explicitly addressed what's "wrong" with the town, but there are hints that even before the town was founded, there was something strange and supernatural about the land itself

    It functioned as a normal town until Dahlia Gillespie burned her psychic daughter, Alessa, in hopes of reviving a God that lied dormant inside her

    But it all went wrong, and Alessa's psychic residue (for lack of better term) has left the town in the state that we see it today

    there's a lot of speculation on that

    the lines between this sort of occult, ancient religion which dominated the land before inhabitation by the white man and the later reworking of this religion into an almost "Christian" doctrine make it hard to identify the true source of power, but the generally accepted theory is that there is a hierarchy consisting of three "higher beings" which is the main idea behind the Gods of the town

    the nature and truth behind these Gods is a little shaky though

    fuck give me some time and i'll try to explain it a little better

    I rented the first game and used GameShark codes before I had played it (I was young and brash)

    So when I was supposed to be killed, then wake up and have the game actually start, I was unable to die, and as such never figured it out. I never played the game again.

    The first part of the first game (with the alleyway and the demon babies) is probably one of the scariest things I've ever played in a survival horror game

    I was so happy they recreated it in the movie

    Agreed. That's honestly the first time any video game ever successfully creeped me right the fuck out.

    I have a love/hate relationship with those games. Never have finished 2 or 3 because they just plain scare the crap out of me. 4 just felt like a waste of goddamn time.

    I won't lie. I didn't beat 4. I got through about 3/4 and got bored with running back through the worlds. Lovely story though.

    redeemer where did you hear sh5 would be in a "sunny environment"? did they elaborate on that? and is the whole, flashbacks of a mental patient as the main premise for the next game still just a bullshit rumor?

    SH4 would make a pretty good movie, I think

    It's annoying that Christophe Gans keeps saying he'd like to use characters like Claudia and Dr. Kaufman for a sequel since he changed the backstory so much that Claudia and Dr. Kaufman wouldn't make any sense in that universe

    I loved 2. I never beat "The Room" because the portal thing was kinda slow. But 2 actually made me cry.

    SH2 is the greatest. Man that game was creepy.

    The second movie, if based on it, had better be better than the first movie was.

    sh4 receives a lot of flak from fan boys because it didn't play exactly like the first three games and everyone else because it was admittedly pretty poorly designed in a lot of places

    the idea of making you play each level twice was bullshit, i don't care what your premise is

    however the story is excellent and the way they worked the creep factor into first person mode was awesome and something i hope to see again

    The mental patient thing was total bullshit

    The sunny environment stuff I got from here http://www.ggmania.com/?smsid=21239

    Bongi said that it would essentially work as a way to subvert the calmness and safeness of being in light, but... I don't know

    We'll have to see

    The only redeeming part of the movie is when the woman is trying to leave with the cop, and they get to the bridge and there's a rusty chain-link fence there and the bridge is completely gone.

    Then those headless, leg things come down the hillside (not agressively, just wandering like in the game) and spit the shit at them. Then, they run away and they pan up the rocky cliffs and through the fog you can see like 3 or 4 aimlessly wandering around.

    Just perfectly done, like the games.

    Agreed there. I treasure my soundtracks.

    The stories tend to lose me every once in a while though. Having 20 different endings doesn't help that.
