P.T.'s puzzling story explained in depth

The timing on this video could not be better. As a new PlayStation 4 owner, one of the first games I knew I had to download was P.T., a playable teaser lead-in to Silent Hills. It's a weird game -- "experimental," if you lik...

Tomm Hulett's unified Mario Timeline Theory photo
Tomm Hulett's unified Mario Timeline Theory
by Jonathan Holmes

Game director Tomm Hulett has been working in the industry since he was a kid, starting with a job testing NES games. Since then he's worked on everything from PersonaContraSilent Hill, and Adventure Time, but no matter what he does or where he goes, Mario will be in his heart.

Tomm asked me over a month ago if Destructoid would be interested in hosting one of his pet projects, a split-timeline that poses a theory on how every Mario game is connected that he'd been working on with artist Howard Milligan. I was excited about the idea, but was crestfallen a few weeks later when I saw that someone had apparently beaten Tomm to the punch. I shouldn't have worried. When I told Tomm that someone else has tried their hat at a Mario timeline, he said something like "Oh that? That's nothing. Wait until you see the size of the thing I've got for you."

He wasn't kidding. The image he was working on ended up being too large for Dtoid to host (you can grab it for yourself here), though we were able to shrink it down to a still-massive size for our gallery's servers. I'm not the Mario expert that I should be, but I'm pretty sure each and every game Mario has ever appeared in has found a place on the map, including Hotel Mario and Mario's Time Machine. He even got the the Super Mario Bros. movie in there somehow. The only thing I see missing is Mario Paint, but I suppose that could be construed as part of the "Mario Sports Series." I did have a guy try to convince me that Football was an art once, so I guess it's only fair to call Painting a sport.

Is classic Survival Horror considered old fashioned now? photo
Is classic Survival Horror considered old fashioned now?
by Dale North

I like to be scared. I'm not some kind of dark-obsessed weirdo, though. I just really enjoy the feeling of being tense or terrified, so much so that I used to think that there was something wrong with me. Maybe there is.

A few years back, after a nearly year-long kick of reading freaky books, watching horror movies, and replaying some of my favorite survival horror videogames, I decided to do some digging into why I like to be scared. It turns out that the typical reasons are fairly tame; some folks like the huge pile of satisfaction feels they get from being able to work through tense or scary moments. It's a break. An escape. Something new and different. 

Being armed with the knowledge behind these feelings out doesn't change that I'm still drawn to them. And I've found that survival horror games are still the best way to get that high. I regularly replay the classics. I chomp at the bit for new ones and devour them when they're finally released. I'm hooked.

But I'm starting to feel a bit old-fashioned in my love of these games.

Is P.T. a work of art, or a pixel-hunting exercise in frustration?

When P.T. was announced at gamescom a few weeks back, no one really jumped for joy. Billed as a "playable teaser," the interactive trailer was very much a game, and come to find out -- it had many elements of old school ...

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...

These Japanese ladies playing P.T. are the best

Check out these Japanese ladies playing the P.T. "interactive trailer" that was released this week at gamescom. I think they're all hilarious but I love the face the one lady makes at 0:46. She's like, oh sh*t. Then, oh SH*T. And then there's the one lady later on that gives no f*cks at all. She's also great.

These Silent Hill nurses sure are great dancers

Silent Hill nurses? Pretty freaky. Silent Hill nurses performing a well choreographed dance number that's also a burlesque number? Awesome, yet still pretty freaky. (Via Topless Robot)

Movie Defense Force: Silent Hill

My movie review show, Movie Defense Force, has another videogame-based film on the block this week, so I am sharing it here for your delicious viewing. I'm talking about the 2006 Silent Hill movie -- maligned by all when it first came out, but probably one of the better adaptations out there.  Of course, defending the sequel would be way more challenging ... and I plan on doing that, too!
