They could easily just have the monsters that die in the cutscenes stay there.

Re: Should Monster Cadaver Stick Around?

> Games based on the Unreal engine uses this mechanism, so naturally, Silent Hill Downpour has enemies dissipate like that after being defeated. The engine the game is developed in has no bearing on whether enemies are going to disappear or not. That is entirely up to the dev how they want to implem...

Re: Sakura head 1/6 scale statue available to preorder

I want this but I can't justify that price right now. Hopefully some less expensive Short Message merch hits shelves at some point.

Well the rating being locked in bodes well for an imminent release. Hopefully we see some more news soon.

Re: How are we feeling about Ascension so far?

I fell behind as school and my kids' basketball season took up increasing portions of my time. Now that basketball is done, I can get caught up on this. Cool to hear that it's picking up!

Re: Over 1 million downloads!

I feel like the internet in general has just devolved into this awful mess of extreme takes. Everything is either outstanding or terrible with no in-between. There's no nuance in discussions. Media literacy is non-existent for a large amount of people. The number of times I've seen people complain a...

Re: The "S.H.P." [MASSIVE SPOILERS BEWARE]

Silent Hill only has one prison. The one in Homecoming is the same prison as Downpour (Overlook Penitentiary). It just changed locations between games (with Downpour's location probably being the "correct" location due to location of the prison in Homecoming being significantly different i...

Are you looking at the same games? The graphics of the remake look leaps and bounds more advanced than the original game's graphics.

Re: HExadrive pitched remaking SH2 before Bloober

It’s interesting to look at another studio’s SH2 remake pitch. I really enjoyed The Short Message and would be down for another Silent Hill entry from Hexa Drive, whether it’s a remake or another original story.

Re: Konami Potentially Porting 'Silent Hill' Series

Do they just mean ports of the original Team Silent games? The entire mainline series? I'd love to be able to play everything without having to pull out my old consoles. And getting the games to modern platforms would do wonders for the accessibility of the series.

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

The only thing bad about Short Message is the heavy-handed narration. It's a damn solid addition to the Silent Hill catalog.

Re: Which came first... [MASSIVE SPOILERS - YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!]

IIRC the villa became a suicide hotspot during the pandemic (so like 2020 - but it had also been the place where the Witch of the Far East had possibly committed suicide in 1947, right?) and Maya died in 2021 (or maybe it was late 2020?). I may have the dates wrong since I've only played through it ...

Re: The "S.H.P." [MASSIVE SPOILERS BEWARE]

Not to get too far off topic, but I think there’s more than just this note connecting it to the Silent Hill franchise. There are also similar design sensibilities, audio components, and themes that carry over from the prior entries in the franchise. Once the game got into its groove towards the star...

Re: Silent Hill 2 - Combat Reveal Trailer

I feel like the general view of what a trailer “should” show has also changed dramatically in the last couple of decades. People are much more concerned with spoilers in their entertainment media today than they were when I was growing up in the 90s and 2000s.

Re: Free Silent Hill game, the Short Message available now (PS5)

Some additional observations: The narration is really heavy-handed at times. I think the story's presentation could have benefitted from dialing that back a bit. I liked the story, it just could have been presented a little better. I love the Otherworld design in this game. The post-its were an idea...
