New Silent Hill: Rubbish Pyramid Head confirmed (also, November release)

6:57 AM on 08.20.2008 // Jim Sterling

Some new information has surfaced on the Western-developed Silent Hill: Homecoming. Chief among them for me is the grim confirmation that Pyramid Head is indeed being recycled and crammed in to this new installment, something I was trying to pretend wasn't real. As if that wasn't lame enough, the fact that he's the musclebound skirt-wearing version as seen in the Silent Hill movie, and not the creepy smock-adorned version from Silent Hill 2, suggests even more to me that this game will be a cheap disappointment crammed full of homages to the film more than anything else. 

Pyramid Head, the nurses, the look of the Otherworld -- all of it has been lifted directly from the movie, which is rather pitiful and creatively lazy in my opinion. I'll stop bashing it before I sound like a Fallout fan or something, but I'll just say that this is not a game I am excited for, and to say that about a Silent Hill game is something that saddens me greatly.

Still, check out the new shots over at ActionTrip, and also be aware that Konami has pushed the release date back to November. Maybe they found something else from previous SH installments to recycle and shoehorn in at the last minute. It has been confirmed that a PC version is in the works as well. 

Also, f*ck the developers of this game for making me feel like a whiny Diablo fanboy complaining about new games. If you'll excuse me, I'm off to make a melodramatic online petition to continue my Silent Hill bitching in peace.

The amount of people who still defend Atlus's terrible marketing for their "crossover game" is kind of disturbing...

Playing MGSV Ground Zeroes reminds me of when I was a younger child and I would play game demos over and over again, creating my own objectives and stories with my imagination. I love it!

SFV just revealed Laura's video. She doesn't look that combo-friendly tbh. That just might be the video though.

Apparently some people are upset at Hyrule Warriors Legends calling it "the most expensive DLC", to quote a well known former writer of the site "they're Nintendo fans, that's what they do" complain.

Pathologic Classic HD just got announced and holy crap am I excited. If you haven't played the game, keep your eyes on this one. It's the very definition of an underrated title. Though I'm not sure what'll happen to the remake that was being shown...

MGO is a blast and after playing for a few hours as each class, I'm glad I stuck with Infiltrator.

So assuming the terrible blog tools functions correctly, soon there may be a nefarious call to arms. So keep an eye out and hope there isn't a typo due to light-grey on white background text.

MGO's pretty fun! I suck at it though. I mostly hang back and just mark enemies and get the occasional sniper kill. It's pretty fun to be semi-useful with a very hands off role like that. Love my avatar character guy too.

Rock Band 4 is really fun...takes me back to my teenage days of high school. Also reminds me of all the hours I wasted on a plastic guitar instead of getting better on a real one xD
