I'm usually against the guy that's resistant to change, but I don't love where Konami is letting the Silent Hill franchise go to.
Here's what Tomm Hulett, Senior Associate Producer for upcoming PS Vita game Silent Hill: Book of Memories, says in this new trailer for the game:
That sentence alone is scarier than any horror moment in any of the franchise games. I was already concerned when I heard the game would be a top-down multiplayer affair, but now that I've seen this early game footage I feel dirty.
Hulett says that "fans needn't worry." How could we not worry? Seeing area attacks, hit points flying up and the re-usage of old character assets (again!) has me really worried. You think cashing in on another Pyramid Head appearance is a selling point?
Maybe this game would be good if it was something else that wasn't all up in the Silent Hill world, abusing its history.
