Is there a translation to Silent Hill 3 Offical Novel? I have been wanting to read this for quite a long time and i can't find any translation to it. Is there one somewhere online?

There's one of Silent Hill 2's novel, I'm not sure if there's one for SH3's novel though, I think there might be. Check around some of the SH Fansites.

I love the Silent Hill Series. The games: Homecoming, Origins, and Shattered Memories, did nothing wrong whatsoever, they were developed well, and did things different. Just because they were not by Team Silent doesn't mean that they're bad games. I believe in this series. I believe that one day, we can have a game that will make all Silent Hill fans Happy. I believe that Silent Hill Downpour can achieve this.
Team Silent may be gone, but their series isn't. Instead... it's here, it's alive.

If you agree, add it to your sig.

It's not fully translated, and neither is the Silent Hill 2 novel yet

I don't believe a translation of the SILENT HILL 3 novel exists yet.

Does it matter? It's not like SH3 had a plot...

It was SH1's plot.

No. SH1's plot was nuanced and mysterious. SH3's is trite and shallow.

It matters to me? Best of the series to me and it did have a plot. Better than the second and forth in my opinion. I'm guessing you are a big fan of 2 am I right? Silent Hill 3 is about Heather who finds out her true self and about the history of her and Silent Hill and why thing happen to people who enter Silent Hill. (Alessa)
I would like to read it because it could have more detail about Silent Hill.
BIG STORY! You know why? Because it's about "Silent Hill" Hence the title "Silent Hill"

I find it more interesting than 2 just about some guy looking for his dead wife and just meeting crazy people that have nothing to do with him at all.

So it does "matter" and it does have a plot. =)

I think that's more SH1's execution. Mostly by virtue of not having the mid-game exposition scene. :wink:

The whole Heather is Alessa plot would have been more interesting if the game hadn't been so blatantly obvious about it from the get go, even going so far as to basically spoil the connection in the trailers. :P

On a more serious note, peronmis, I understand the official novels to be disappointingly substandard schlock.

I've only heard this second-hand, but here's what I've heard. I'll put spoiler tags, just in case, but you've played these games...

[Reveal] Spoiler:
In SH1, Harry uses video game logic to cure Cybil's case of the zombie nurse (that'll either strike you as fourth-wall-breaking clever, or immensely stupid). In SH2, Angela's backstory includes being raped by her whole town (I wish I was exaggerating). In SH3, Vincent's backstory includes, to paraphrase alone in the town, winning Stock Market on Hard Mode and then retiring to lead the cult.


You might be better off forgetting the novels exist, so they don't taint the games' artistic reputations.

Obvious? I had no clue. and I have never seen a Silent Hill trailer besides Homecoming

... just watched the commercial and trailer and it didn't reveal anything about who they were. These are basically new characters and a new story.

Please don't double-post. That's naughty pie stuff.

What Kenji is saying is that the novels are basically middle-grade fanfiction.net stuff that someone got paid to write. There are, in fact, fan-made attempts that are much better. Krist. was writing a novelization for Silent Hill 3 that she hasn't finished but is very well-written.

^A double post is when you post in a topic again before someone posts after the post you already posted, if that makes sense. Like, if you post in a thread, wait until another person posts before posting again. If you have more to say, you can add it to your last post by going to the edit button on the bottom of your post.

You did double post. See those two posts right above Alone in the Town's and below Kenji's? Both by you? That's double posting. We discourage double posting around here so in the future please just use the edit button instead of creating a new reply.

There should be an auto merge feature. Some forums have it.

It matters, my friend. The fate of worlds balances upon your willingness to avoid making consecutive posts.

To quote multiple people, you'll have to copy, paste, and add [quote] tags, either manually or with the control buttons in the post window. Unfortunately, this forum software lacks a multi-quote function.
