Moved to the section about this sort of thing. Please note what the section you're in is about before making a topic there in future. And to address the topic, I'm not entirely sure what you're asking. How it's limited? That usually just means it was on sale for a very short time and had less produc...

Re: Gillespie House

I don’t necessarily look at these things as ‘inconsistencies’ at this point. Are they different from what we initially perceived? Sure. But we’re not the ones writing the games. If said inconsistencies were so egregious they couldn’t be reconciled, that would be one thing, but these are not. Even t...

Re: Gillespie House

I'm most certainly not trying to push for a Climax ruined everything narrative, it's just that some things are easier explained when they're left untouched. Not everything needs an explanation and the Gillespie house is one of those things that doesn't need it. The exact location of the house or wh...

Re: SH1 to (Possibly) Become Unavailable Digitally Forever Soon

Re: Silent Hill 2 Timeline

I didn't say that the calendar wasn't meant to be analyzed closely. I asked if anyone has extracted the file, because it is claimed that it says "November '84" or "November 1984" when the text doesn't clearly say that in the game itself or in any screenshot (due to the small pix...

Re: Silent Hill 2 Timeline

With all due respect, this sort of sherlock holmsing can be unreliable. Something like that could have easily been an oversight, unless there is something in the game that directly places it in 2001. This gets passed around a lot, but I'm not certain the calendar does say "November '84." ...

Re: Silent Hill 2 Timeline

Well he did say late 70s or early 80s. 83 is still early 80s. Clearly the real takeaway here is that James is an early adopter of new technology. Evidence for this: Mary seems slightly annoyed that James is "taping AGAIN", which is the sort of thing someone who just got a camcorder for the...

Re: Silent Hill 2 Timeline

There a lot of new discrepancies in following this "new/alternate" timeline, and, sure, Masahiro Ito is an original member of the team, this just doesn't make sense. It doesn't make sense because Masahiro Ito had no involvement with any game beyond SH3 and the people who were involved in ...

Tom Waltz, yeah, that's who it was! Started with some of the comics and then was brought on to co-write Downpour. He seemed like a really cool guy. And like I said, I think it makes sense for newer entries that want to count the whole series to reference your timeline. It's the most comprehensive on...

Re: Silent Hill 2 Timeline

I think your timeline is good work. It's worth it to have a timeline that considers every piece of released information like guidebooks to create something comprehensive. I do now also remember someone official using your timeline (was it Climax, though, or Konami staff? There were two games after t...

Re: Silent Hill 2 Timeline

If I remember correctly, we got the 90s date from expanded Homecoming materials. Sounds like they made some assumptions. Since the original games don't give any exact dates I think it's going to be one of those things where some people choose to go with what Homecoming stuff says and some will go wi...

Re: Sam Barlow Pitching Shattered Memories Follow-Up

Given that Her Story and Telling Lies are what they are, I wouldn't expect any future Sam Barlow games to lean heavier on combat than Shattered Memories did. And personally, I think that's fine. I'm always down for video games to try different things than what's come before.

Re: The voice acting from the perspective of a non-American?

It's a mixed bag. Some of it comes across as really awkward or forced (especially Laura), while some of it is so on point it's heart-breaking (Mary/Maria). Most of it isn't BAD, though. Just not as professional as you'd get out of a AAA video game today. The truth is that it was an early PS2 game fr...

Re: A black sheep in the series, yet it still gives me the c

I like bold risks in video games. I think the direction SH4 was going in was one worth exploring and the game has some truly inspired ideas and moments. But it's also held back by a lot of frustrating design choices, average at best level design, barely existent puzzles, and one of the worst second ...

Re: Silent Hill TV Series Starring Charlize Theron???

Definitely sounds like clickbait to me, that website is notorious for it. Probably someone just saying this because of all the Resident Evil netflix stuff happening.

Re: Chrisophe Gans Announces New Silent Hill Movie

As I said, we're not at that point. Literally all that's happened is he's said "I'm working on a new Silent Hill", that doesn't mean anything to be honest. The amount of scripts or pitches for video game movies that didn't end up happening is insane. I wouldn't expect this movie to get mad...

Re: Chrisophe Gans Announces New Silent Hill Movie

I mean from the way I read his statement it sounded like he was just working on the script. I don't think a studio even picked it up or anything so if it does happen I imagine it's at least a few years out.

Re: Konami had P.T. BC manually blocked on PS5

Konami has wanted PT buried from the beginning. Part of why I was so shocked earlier this year to hear they were talking with Kojima (though it seems those talks fell through and didn't result in anything from what people have said) is because of just how hard they went after his stuff when the brea...
