There's no Halloween in Silent Hill!

Everyone's favourite nurse-murdering sim is about to make a comeback in the form of a fifth installment, Homecoming, at the end of the month, and anyone unfortunate enough to have communicated with me at all since 1999 knows that any release of any Silent Hill game is a sacred time for me

I don't need GTA, I don't need Halo

But I need Silent Hill

Let's watch this preview and speculate

http://www.gametrailers.com/player/39968.html

Will it be another spiritual clone of Silent Hill 2 that fanboys will bitch about even though they all say they want every game in the series to be like Silent Hill 2, thereby stunting the creative growth of the series?

Thoughts?

    The trailer didn't give it a proper scary feel. I really dislike the gametrailer videos with that guy narrating

    can you guarantee that the controls are not old-RE-style retarded?

    I would play it then, maybe.

    If you can, please play the old games, they're great

    Silent Hill 4 has awful gameplay but it has one of the strongest stories in the series

    Combat training?

    I dunno, it makes me a bit wary

    But I've never properly played any of these games, nor will I properly play this one

    I will be buying this regardless of the controls. Having only ever played Silent Hill 2, and that a long time ago, I've been waiting for something new in the series so I can finally get into it. How are the Silent Hills on Gametap? Anyone ever tried them to see if they run well?

    I remember playing a demo for a game a long while back where at that point in the game, you had nothing but a heart problem. The game had such a creepy atmosphere. It was in some spaceship future setting and there were ghosts or something. Your light source was limited to the helmet-mounted light

    The main mechanic you were playing with was that you were in a horrible physical state at the time and if you got too worked up, you would croak. You had the option to run from things, but it was a dangerous balance. There was this constant pulse and heart monitor thumping in the speaker

    that game demo scared me more than any other game I've ever played ever. It somehow also managed to give me a feeling of claustrophobia

    I love the opening song from Silent Hill 3. And if I watch some of the silent hill stuff while in the right mindset oh maaaan I get the fears.

    Also I liked the movie. It's just so bleak & hopeless. I hope they make a sequel.

    Bongi was telling me that he was worried this looked too much like Silent Hill: The Movie: The Game

    Honestly, that doesn't really bother me. The movie's production values were superb, and their Pyramid Head design is far superior to SH2's

    I just wish they'd give the god damn nurses an upgrade, this is the third time we've had the bobbleheaded ones (plus the movie, which makes four times). I thought SH3's black hair and lipstick smeared nurses were scarier, anyway

    Valtiel, man, he ruled

    Now THERE was a good way of implementing an ominous background character ala Pyramid Head without actually being a transparent clone of Pyramid Head (ahem, The Butcher)

    who cares, go play siren: blood curse instead

    so is this worth the download? i tried out the demo, and liked it well enough, but $40 is a lot. i'm basically asking if its worth the money to download the whole shebang.

    I was looking into this the other day while trying to find something horror'ish to occupy my time. Apparently it's quite good, but I'm passing on that information from a third party. I haven't tried it myself. So a cautious 'yes, it's worth it' with the caveat that I haven't tried it myself.

    ahh, ok, everything sounds positive about it, but man, i feel like since its split up into chapters, i'll be playing for a few hours then be done with the thing. also, while the escorting of the young lady wasn't too bad in the demo, i usually hate having to escort people in games, and it seems to be a big part of the actual game. cmon, if i'm gonna have to carry your ass, at least be useful for something.
