Sample the music from Silent Hill: Downpour

Former Silent Hill main man Akira Yamaoka won't be on board for the upcoming Silent Hill: Downpour, seeing as how he peaced out from Konami back in 2009.

So who's picking up the musical responsibilities for the title, the eighth game in the series? None other than Daniel Licht, composer best known for his work on the hit Showtime series, Dexter. How's he doing? Have a listen in the video above, which I threw together and set it to some screenshots and concept artwork for Downpour.

I know a lot of folks are going to be resistant to the change -- Yamaoka's score and vibe was an essential part of the Silent Hill universe. But I see where Licht is going with this particular piece; it's got the same kind of eerie atmosphere I've come to expect from the series.

We'll have to wait to see how it comes together, though, when Silent Hill: Downpour hits PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 this fall. Until then, everyone is free to bitch about how Konami is ruining the series or something, right?

Is Silent Hills about aliens? Swedish radio segment references War of the Worlds

I love the Silent Hill franchise, and am glad that it's in new hands now. And it may be going in a new direction. If the translation of a Swedish radio broadcast tucked deep with in the P.T. interactive trailer means anythin...more

This is how you steal from other players in Metal Gear Solid V

Not all Mother Bases are created equal. Yours could be wildly different than another player's, as you've both decided to focus on different aspects to upgrade. It's a nice little touch that will make your base feel like home...more
