Re: Should Monster Cadaver Stick Around?

I'm okay with bodies disappearing after you leave a room/area. Though I think it'd be cool to leave a bloodstain behind. Or maintaining area damage you've created. The latter for persistence, the former for a WTF? feeling, and psychologically, because the continual presense of monster corpses litter...

Re: ESRB Rating and something weird...

I can see new cutscenes being shot where Maria is more overtly teasing James sexually. Including her playing around on a pole. We know from the trailer that scenes will be different and more dramatized. Just like James is displaying more emotion, Maria will also likely be leaning more into suggestiv...

Re: ESRB Rating and something weird...

I never felt the line was innuendo. It's an uncomfortable unnerving scene across from each other in a jail cell. While Maria does hit on James after to come release her, the videotape reference drop just sounded like a vacation video, which I believe was already foreshadowed before, but I don't reme...

ESRB Rating and something weird...

The Remake has been rated by the ESRB. M, of course. https://www.esrb.org/ratings/39762/silent-hill-2/ But... there is this odd thing in the description... The game contains some suggestive/sexual material: characters pole-dancing in strip-club settings; posters of women in revealing outfits (e.g., ...

Re: Is OD the PT/Silent Hills successor?

Re: Silent Hill 2 remake has reached the late stage of production

The game may release this summer? "Silent Hill 2 has been rated in South Korea meaning we may be seeing it sooner than later. Although, @the_marmolade tracked the time frames of other Konami releases from rating in South Korea to release. The date range is 18th April - 23rd May. My prediction w...

Re: Silent Hill 2 remake has reached the late stage of production

Actual combat encounters may be about as much as the original. But the main gripes inherent in the trailer of QTEs and cover vaulting nurses and maybe even dodging enemies (who can't see/hear, and are designed like trapped creatures who should have trouble moving). Wish he'd been specific, but the p...

Re: Over 1 million downloads!

How do the downloads of this compare to, say, the sales of Downpour? It's hard to know, but by VG Chartz's estimates, probably around 800,000 worldwide for PS3/360, though certainly after discounts, and not including digital sales. Anyway, can't really compare it with a free download. A more apples...

Re: Over 1 million downloads!

TSM has reached 2 million downloads btw. Really proud of Hexadrive on this one and I'm still shocked Konami gave it away. Yup. 2 million now. https://twitter.com/silenthill_jp/status/1756890876272398740 I believe Konami wanted to recapture the hype of PT, and Sony as well, which would explain the P...

Re: They've changed something...

I can see why some may not be feeling the new graphics. Which I believe comes down to primarily to lighting for the most part. While the assets in the Remake are undoubtedly a generation ahead, there are drawbacks. For one, the closer you come to realism, the more some things stand out for not being...

Re: HExadrive pitched remaking SH2 before Bloober

Yeah, good point. James is not just taking a whole map off the wall. But copying it down, and updating it as he goes as he did in the original. The subtitle 'Letter from Silent Heaven' was also the title of James' scenario versus Maria's 'Born from a wish', from the director's cut version of the gam...

Re: They've changed something...

*Bump* Time to take a new look at the latest trailer... though there aren't really any cutscenes that we can really dig into this time. The focus is more on the combat, and contrary to my thoughts here , it looks like Bloober might be leaning more into the RE style of action than I'd have thought, o...

Re: HExadrive pitched remaking SH2 before Bloober

I see what you're saying. But it again depends... Moving SH2 to OTS or 3rd person camera is a big change, but it doesn't inherently change the essence of the game which is exploration of the town or enjoying its environments. So I don't have any issue with that. I think Downpour did fairly well swit...

Re: HExadrive pitched remaking SH2 before Bloober

What I prefer about Hexadrive's pitch, is the more 'retro' feel. The item displays, and the fact that James model here is closer if not more spot-on to the original, and in what feels like a twist, the environments, lighting and aesthetics are not overly as realistic or as detailed as Bloober's, eve...

Re: Konami Potentially Porting 'Silent Hill' Series

Well Konami is doing the Metal Gear ports (badly), but I'm sure the plan is the same. All games from PS1 to PS3 and if they like money, then P.T. as a contextualized bonus. There were also nice extras like the PSP Silent Hill Experience. I figure... Silent Hill Collection Vol. 1 Silent Hill 1 Silent...
