Silent Hill’s Keiichiro Toyama’s upcoming horror game „Slitterhead” official gameplay trailer has been reuploaded.

It’s more action than his previous titles I.e. Silent Hill, Siren. But I’m excited. Nice to see people like Toyama working on new projects.

"Eric" on Netflix: SH2 Plot Vibes?

I started watching the show, am only a couple episodes in, and I'm getting some SH2 plot vibes. Anyone else checking it out?

It is created and written by Abi Morgan. She has had a very strange life experience -- her hudband acquired "Capgras delusion" that she is an imposter and not his real wife.

Why wouldnt bloober team just stick to the original intro, with James running his hand down his face?

Genuine question. Why do you think they decided to change it?

The original intro was open to interpretation on why he ran his hand down his face. Is he going mad? Is he doing a reality check to make sure he isn't dreaming? Is he going through depersonalization? is he mimicing the motion of pulling away the pillow from mary after he killed her, remembering her face, and is reliving it over and over?

I dont see the point in replacing it with the 'face-touching' motion, like hes inspecting his face for something physical. It comes across as a little bit too hollywood generic. Why go for the option thats already been done a hundred times?

Silent hill 2: shattered memories sequel designs

Please don't burn me at the stake, I know and understand the love and admiration for the original, this post is not going to step on the story. I only want to discuss ideas I had for their designs ONLY. no story altering.

James: more thin, starving almost, long disheveled dirty blonde hair and stubble, a black tank top, grey over shirt and big puffy green winter coat with all of his little patches, black homeless gloves, dirty and ripped jeans, one boot and one shoe. A wedding ring around his neck

Mary: curly red hair, yet thinning due to her illness, a iv and breathing tube accompany her, wearing only a hospital gown, her arms have bruises from straps, multiple bandaids and patches.

Eddie: he wears a tattered and stretched out silent hill police department uniform, his hair a even more mess than James, tattoos of bullets along his arm, grease stains his fingers, he wears a dark red auto shop hat. (Still overweight)

Maria: more "attractive" appearance (no, not like a porno, just SLIGHTLY more thick) very long pale blonde hair, wearing a fishnet shirt with a dark pink corset and bra, a choker with a cracked heart and her og skirt, ripped fishnet stockings and simple dark pink shoes.

Angela: brown hair with a bandaid on her nose, a white coat like James'. a dirty orange turtle neck, white pants and shoes, a few cuts along the jacket sleeves.

Laura: black hair with a light green hairband, a little winter coat with unicorns and other girly stickers, a backpack with a pyramid charm on it, and of course more unicorns, Laura likes those unicorns. Big little kid winter boots

Pyramid head: (female) the pyramid takes after the first film, but with some different aspects, PH's muscular body is covered in dirty blood stained leather, chains adorn PH's body, dragging them along as she persues James, the blade now spiked on one side, and serated on the other.

I made pyramid head female because I don't think it really matters much. >!he's just a vessel for Jame's need to be punished, it shouldn't matter.!<

So remind me why people are so bashful of the Silent Hill 2 Remake?

I've seen SO many piss and moan about the remake but from what I've seen from the trailer it looks amazing.

I mean the atmosphere, the wardrobe,the facial models, all are rather faithful from the og game and that's coming from someone who obsessed over this game when I was little watching all types of different videos for it.

I mean the only thing I can see that's really different is now you can aim for headshots,leg shots, bodyshots, etc. that's literally the only difference.

I have no clue why clunk aim system would be what makes or break it for you all but I've heard stranger out of a reddit community before.

Gift ideas for a longtime SH fan

Hey all!

My boyfriends birthday is coming up this summer. I planned to buy him the preorder for Silent Hill 2 for his birthday but I'm aware that it's not releasing until October.

I was thinking that since he won't be getting his birthday gift until October, I would like to get him something small that kind or commemorates the game.

I saw this keychain and I was wondering if this was from SH2? Or is there any other "thing" from Silent Hill 2 that I could get him? We both like props and things from our favorite games and I know he'd be so excited to get something that says "Your present is coming soon". If that makes sense.

Do you think that SH2 Remake will be stressful to play like older games such as SH3&4?

I’m getting up there with age now. I’m not in my teens and early 20s with no stress in the world anymore and I am just not doing good half the time. Do you think that this game will be fun to play or do you think it will cause stress when playing it? I kind of want to get it anyway and just play it but I am wondering if this game will cause super anxiety.

Like I know this is a psych horror game so it will cause anxiety, but I’m wondering if this game will cause more anxiety and stress than older games because the graphics and just sheer scale has been turned up to 11 since it is on PlayStation 5. I want to be able to play it but I don’t want lumps in my chest. :( I also don’t know how this will compare to older games since I only played a little of the newer games like Homecoming and Downpour.

What do you think? Will this game be super stressful to play?

Edit: Oh yeah and what do we know about that other SH game in development? Is it coming soon yet?

Wait so, why can’t I get the deluxe edition stuff if I buy the physical version of the game? Am I really not able to get ANY of it if I buy physically?

I really want to own the game with the disc and case because I was not able to do that when it was on PlayStation 2. Why can’t I get the stuff that comes with the digital version?

Probably no one knows so far, but do you think they’ll offer the content as a digital deluxe purchase later? Is there a way I can get both the masks and stuff while also buying physical do you know? Because Konami.com says, and I quote, “Deluxe Edition available as digital only.” But that’s for deluxe and not specifically the content associated with it.

The FOMO is real and it’s mean this time.

Apparently a Silent Hill 2 Gameboy demake exists! And it's actually quite good.

Released on itch.io as a GB roms. Or rather, they include a bunch of versions and updates. A gameboy emulator or the likes and you're good to go.
Props to stormergames! https://stormergames.itch.io/

Why is everyone complaining about the remake being not upto their expectations, i doubt many of the critics weren't even alive when the original game came out

Did anyone else actually love the first movie?

It’s probably one of my favorite movies of all time.

The first movie was pretty much a masterpiece to me even if purists complained about “lore accuracy”. It had its own spin on the SH lore, and it was actually REALLY well done. It was its own thing that distinguished itself as not being a clone of the game, and I loved that. The movie got me into the games. And I can distinguish and appreciate that the lore between them is different. It gave me two different lores to love and I remember being fascinated by the differences. I was SO excited for a sequel that would continue that separate lore or adapt the other games while using the pre established lore to loosely adapt them.

Then Revelations came and fucked it all up…

I’ll never forgive the director/writer. I still don’t know what the hell they were thinking. “Let’s make a sequel but spend half of our movie retconning the first one just to half-assedly throw in SH3 plot points that still make no sense in the context of this being a sequel to the first movie”

First movie deserved better. Kinda bummed the new movie will likely not reference it at all. I wish we could scrub revelations out of existence and just continue with the lore established by the first movie :/

But I guess at this rate, we don’t even know if the new movie will be good. I’m just assuming because it’s the same director as the first one. Idk man.
