Sample the music from Silent Hill: Downpour


11:00 AM on 01.28.2011



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?

It should go without saying that Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain had a great showing at E3. Not only was the official trailer a stellar piece of work, and a big indication of how grim the game will be, but the 30-minute ...more

In time for calcio (football) madness, PES 2015 gets a trailer

Update: Welp, that video was pulled due to licensing issues. I'll take this moment to root very hard for Belgium to knock out the American team.  I'm a bit checked out after Italy's rare, unceremonious early exit, but we...more

Metal Gear Solid V's E3 showing minus the hour of fluff

Konami posted its behind closed doors E3 demo that was the basis for my E3 preview and broken cynicism. But it did so as part of a two hour long thing with interviews and cuts away from the action. This is the straight, uninterrupted gameplay. And it's worth watching again, isn't it? more
