Topic: Nowhere and its litteral meaning
Replies: 38

My point is that, Nowhere in SH1 isn't an utopia, but rather a conglomeration of memories and nightmares manifested physically by a fading source of power, ergo the fact that it has many locations Harrold previously ran into; it's not really a location per se, it's just an unknown realm of reality ...

I haven't been able to get a Greatest Hits version for PS2, but I do have Silent Hill 2: Restless Dreams for the Xbox. One of the first differences I noticed is that the flashlight casts a nearly perfect cone of light whose edges taper off into a nice uniform blend with the darkness at all times. In...

Another reason SH2 is so special to me is how it solidly demonstrated the endurance of its developers' creativity. After being so completely floored by the first game, of course I expected decent things from the second, but not much of a departure from what had already promised to make the series a ...

I think it goes more in to the fact that females are very emotional... Females tend to think a lot. We think and think and once we make up our mind, we're still thinking about it. We interpret things in so many different ways, that you can get so many different outcomes with female charactors. Male...

As with the positive aspects of high definition television, engine handling flaws -- which the PS2's not completely devoid of either -- aside, the nastiness with SH1 on the PS3/HDTV combo is directly and exclusively characteristic of the way the HDTV itself presents the image. Some sets are worse th...

Can i ask, what are they for? SH2 had numburus things about the Civil War in, Why? To me it cultivates a sense of historical depth and provides a frame of reference for certain locations like the prison, and many of the little gems therein. It also marks the town as distinctly American by lending i...

"I know this may be a stretch (and when I say maybe, it is definitely because of her calm complecture..." That's one of the best made-up words I've seen in a long time. I'd attribute Harry and Cybil spending most of the game apart to a combination of things: Cybil's professionalism, Harry'...

Xbox games don't run on Xbox 360 ? :shock: That's horrible!! The original Xbox's graphics chip was made by Nvidia, while the 360's is made by ATI, so the only old games that will work for this generation are the ones they spend the time to emulate. Not terribly exciting. And yes, Humanoid, I know e...

Agreed. I was just entertaining the possible situation St. Thomas described above my last post -- that Angela had been looking for both her father and brother in the cemetery -- and sorting through its implications.

Okay, that makes sense. In that case: I had gotten out of the hospital in Portland the day SH2 came out, and my friend Josh was gracious enough to have it and a PS2 waiting for me at home. I remembered how much I couldn't get enough of the first game, and my anticipation for the second was more inte...

I don't see how Angela's use of the term "left" necessarily implies her hand in anything. Supposing that Mrs. Orosco were the only survivor of a hurricane, she would effectively be the only one "left", regardless of who delivered the news, or to whom. Angela carried the knife tha...

SH2 was my favorite game in the series for almost three years simply because I was in love with its story and fascinated by its plot. Not that I appreciate it any less these days, but my affection for the original has been significantly augmented lately. I played it, I loved it, I made a comic mocki...

The backward compatibility won't necessarily be smaller for European PS3s, it'll just be handled in a different way. In order to make the system approximately 6% cheaper, Sony will be excluding the physical components necessary for hardware-based backward compatibility in favor of the relatively che...

I remember speaking to you about this particular sound once before, and I don't think you had heard it as of that time.

I agree with the idea that blood represents pain and flesh represents all thing things that can cause pain. It seems to fit in with the story- Alessa knew so much pain that she began to fear and hate the things that cause pain. The statement itself is equally tragic if put into this perspective. Th...

It seems offensive because you've got it backward: Shorttail is suggesting that you think for yourself, so as to avoid the edge. To each his own, indeed; borrowing someone else's perception can bungle your own coordinants. Nothing ill towards you.
