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:
Book of Memories is a big departure for the series, focusing on cooperative multiplayer action rather than traditional psychological horror.
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.

This theme perfectly captures the essence of Valak Mountain. It feel serene and calm, as well as mountain-esque (lol).Lawman What does one do when MGS V has lost its luster and Persona 4: DAN is growing stale? Listen to Queens of the Stone Age, of course. And wonder; is Steins;Gate worth the asking price? I want it, but not sure if I $30 - $40 want it...Terry 309 Been trying to get Tales Of Phantasia finished before Zestiria comes out... How i'm going to get through that game I have no clue... especially when Exist Archive comes out in December and I have to play that too... also i've still yet to finish Grandia 2TheLimoMaker Been in a bit of a rut this week and as such haven't really been satisfied with any of my games. Therefore, I'm going to start Destiny again on my new PS+ account. Any tips given the amount of updates it's had? Bardley Bought a used knockoff game console called the Power Kracker 2013, which claimed to have 76,000 games. The AC adapter was missing and someone had crammed an off-brand GameCube controller inside the box. I don't know what I expected.Firuzi Gafrindashvili Resident Evil: Revelations 2RadicalYoseph I actually love the quests in Novigrad where you write a play. It's a fun and lighthearted break from the tragedy of Baron and horror of Velen and the Crones.FlanxLycanth I preordered Tales of Zestria and Disgaea 5 because they were £10 cheaper that way, WHO WANTS TO FIGHT ME HUH?Gamemaniac3434 Man, plague of shadows is gooood. It really fleshes out plague knight and the world by extension, and it has some fun story stuff. Plus plague knight plays differently enough to shovel knight to make whats old feel new again. Deep customization too. nanashi You will be missed. 2001 - 2015 ATHF RIP. ... oh and uh, GET OUT OF MY FREAKING POOL!! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8vNZ-KJwdeg
