The Silent Hill Retrospective: Origins

Silent Hill: Origins opened with an outsider saving a little girl from a house fire. But when you look back on its place in the series, it meant so much more than a simple rescue. Travis Grady had problems of his own, but they meant very li...

Norman Reedus says Silent Hills still 'needs to happen'

If you're still salty over the cancellation of Silent Hills, you are not alone. Norman Reedus - who's likeness was used in the (terrifying) Silent Hills interactive teaser P.T. -- is still "super bummed" about the whole thing, but recently ...

The Silent Hill Retrospective: The Room

What makes the difference between houses and homes? Is it the space itself or the people inhabiting them? Is it down to the memories we create for ourselves or the aged familiarity of the spaces around us? And if a room is indifferent to ou...

Silent Hills was going to be similar to The Last of Us

Oh hey, it's that time again where we get to learn why Silent Hills would have been the perfect best game ever if it had not been cancelled. Hooray for more quotes about this cancelled game. So, according to Guillermo Del Toro, there w...

The Silent Hill Retrospective: Silent Hill 3

Silent Hill 3 is a mean-spirited game, but then that was always the point. In order to value her future, Heather Mason is dragged, kicking and screaming, through the muck and mire of her past. Yes, she’s given the tools to fight back,...

Who asked for this? photo

New Silent Hill announced, it's a slot machine

Remember that hot new Castlevania pachinko game featuring "erotic violence?" Well, I'm guessing the reception was so positive that Konami decided to announce a new Silent Hill slot machine. Hurray! Just what we have been asking f...

The Silent Hill Retrospective: Silent Hill 2

It started with a worried look in mirror dimly lit. For Silent Hill 2, this was a statement of intent; a progression in not only hardware, but also in narrative. Out went the B-movie horror about gods and the occult, and in its place was so...

Horror and secrecy need to be better bedfellows

Horror games, as much as I love them, have a serious problem right now.   In the modern-day media maelstrom, almost every scare, monster, and plot twist is given away or hinted at before a game is released. Of course, us writers are no...

In a better world, these games exist

Silent Hills was a dream game. Specifically, it was my dream game. If you asked me before P.T. crept onto the PSN servers what series I'd most like to see rejuvenated in a bold new way, I would have probably told you Silent Hill. If you ask...

The Silent Hill Retrospective: Silent Hill

Western horror, Eastern eyes. That was what made Silent Hill memorable for a generation. It was visceral and relentless, oppressive and paranoid, and underlined with a tragic tale that hadn’t been seen on the normally escapist PlaySta...

Is Allison Road the spiritual successor to P.T.?

Though Konami wants to "scorch the earth" and deny that P.T. was possibly the best game reveal in the history of forever (do I still sound bitter?), there are some determined to keep the dream -- or nightmare -- alive. Christian Kesler bega...

 
 
 
Your Silent Hill photo

What would your Silent Hill look like?

My Silent Hill would be a place you couldn't trust. Doors would disappear behind you the moment you turned your back, hallways and staircases would loop back in impossible ways, main streets would abruptly end or lead to a part of the city ...

Do you love P.T. enough to pay 1000 for it?

As many/some/none of you may know, I'm survival horror survivalist. I'm a rubbish one - I scream and shout and lose my shizzle when anything remotely spider-like comes on the screen - but I'm a huge fan of horror games. And of all the horro...

 
 
Shout out to P.T. photo

P.T. scared me more than any other videogame

There was a moment in P.T. that terrified me. I mean truly terrified me. Between the endlessly looping hallway and the haunting cries of a disfigured fetus in a sink, I knew strange things were afoot. It's a disorienting game, especially ea...

 
 
 
 
Silent Hills, loud tears photo

I can't stop crying about the cancellation of Silent Hills

I often film myself at random times during the day just in case anything cool happens -- like a funny joke or catching a ghost on film. Yesterday, I found out live on camera that Silent Hills was cancelled, and boy has it hit me hard. I do...

Konami talks Silent Hills and it's not good news

[Update: It looks like the game has been outright canceled, but there's this tidbit -- "In terms of Kojima and Del Toro being involved, discussions on future Silent Hill projects are currently underway, and please stay tuned for further ann...

 
 
P.T. story photo

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 like -- that obfus...
