My movie review show, Movie Defense Force, has another videogame-based film on the block this week, so I am sharing it here for your delicious viewing. I'm talking about the 2006 Silent Hill movie -- maligned by all when it first came out, but probably one of the better adaptations out there.  Of course, defending the sequel would be way more challenging ... and I plan on doing that, too!
It's time for your best friends, Yahtzee and Jim, to talk about things with rhyming and stuff. This week, Yahtzee buys a new house that's not all it's cracked up to be, while yours truly hides out in Hyrule and does some things.  Oh, what delightful fun!

Silent Hill: Book of Memories is today getting a patch, making substantial improvements to the way the game plays. Based on player feedback, WayForward is hoping to make its PS Vita dungeon crawler a "kinder" experience by re...
The room is dark, cold, and unusually calm. The once bare walkways are now riddled with blood and severed limbs. In the distance, a faint hum can be heard echoing throughout the metal encampment. Its repetition is a solid rem...
There was a time when my highest aspiration in life was to draw my own 2D fighting game. As I got older, I discovered that without the utmost talent, patience, and dedication, it was never going to happen (which is why it ha...
[Destructoid's Director of Communications Hamza Aziz asked Jonathan Holmes to make a show called 'Sup, Holmes?' so that Destructoid could later sell a t-shirt that says 'Sup, Holmes?' on it. This is that show. Subscribe...

Matthew Razak was scheduled to promote the review for Silent Hill: Revelations 3D over on Flixist, but apparently his stupid office has Destructoid blocked. Can't think why! In any case, it falls to me to do the cross-pollina...
Silent Hill: Book of Memories has been a controversial release, despised almost from the outset by fans who viewed it as a betrayal of the series, an abandonment of the survival horror trappings that apparently must be reflec...

At the Eurogamer Expo, Hideo Kojima said something that made all my dreams come true at once -- Konami's president had asked him to make a Silent Hill game. His response, while not exactly the most promising, was receptive en...

Let's be honest: The Silent Hill name was tarnished long ago. Somewhere between that awful Hollywood film and The Room, a game that was never supposed to and never should have been a Silent Hill entry. Things have gotten even...
As we've discussed before, Silent Hill's fanbase is currently afflicted by an irrationally emotional hatred of Silent Hill: Book of Memories, the handheld spin-off developed by WayForward. Series producer Tomm Hulett has beco...
Twin Perfect has posted some of the most well researched Silent Hill analysis videos on the internet and now they have put their magnifying glass to Konami's much maligned HD collection. If Konami paid close attentio...
A few months ago, we featured Uncharted Blood Lines, a fan movie by filmmaker Brett Driver. Brett has uploaded a number of game-themed videos to his YouTube page in the past, and now he's working on Videogame Deathmatch, a n...
Konami uploaded some new Silent Hill: Book of Memories screens to its Facebook page, which yet again invited a slew of hatred and animosity from a fanbase enraged at the existence of a spin-off portable game. So incensed are ...

Every year from the end of September until Halloween, the Universal Studios theme parks in Orlando and Hollywood are given a fright-filled makeover for Halloween Horror Nights. Visitors are treated to an evening of gore, hau...
Fans are still astoundingly furious at Silent Hill: Book of Memories, shocked as they are that a spin-off game would, y'know, spin off. I love me some righteous consumer outrage, but the presumptuous disgust for this one is t...

Silent Hill: Book of Memories certainly turned heads when it was first revealed, but the attention was not entirely welcome. The idea of a top-down dungeon-crawler set in the Silent Hill universe drew more than a little rage ...
Silent Hill series producer Tomm Hulett has finally been able to explain why Silent Hill: HD Collection was such a disappointing mess. It turns out that what we got wasn't ported from the final versions of each game. Konami, ...
Silent Hill: Book of Memories was originally due to release in March, but Konami delayed it to May without telling anybody. Well, we're halfway through May and guess what! It appears to be postponed at the eleventh hour with ...
