    Silent Hill: Book of Memories Review (Vita)

    So, when I first heard there was gonna be a Silent Hill game for the Playstation Vita, I was flipping out in excitement. I was all “What?! Silent Hill while commuting to work?

    Lone Survivor Review (PC)

    For an 8-bit game, Lone Survivor is pretty unnerving and creepy. Its not so much scary as it is unsettling, but it hints at things you’re not too sure you really want to know about this dark, infected, monster-infested world. In this side scrolling, survival-horror adventure game, you wake up in an apartment not sure […]

    Silent Hill HD Collection Review (PS3)

    This review won’t be much of a game review, but more of a comparison of the Silent Hill HD collection to the original games. It seems like a lot of classic games are getting HD upgrades, remakes or remastered versions of themselves. If they aren’t made well it kind of ruins the original game experience, […]

    Silent Hill Downpour Screenshots

    Hot on the heels of the Silent Hill HD Collection will be the newest Silent Hill entry, Downpour (Due mid- March 2012). This time being developed by Vatra Games, it will be interesting how this game fares in comparison to Silent Hill Homecoming. Hopefully they do away with the dodge system, or at the very […]

    Silent Hill HD Collection Screenshots

    Silent Hill HD Collections, due for release in March 2012, on Xbox 360 and PS3, will include two games in the series – Silent Hill 2 and 3. While I am probably more interested in wandering the streets and locations of Silent Hill 2 in HD, the inclusion of Silent Hill 3 will give me […]

  • Review: Silent Hill Homecoming

    Review: Silent Hill Homecoming

    This is my favourite series, I love all things Silent Hill (although I haven’t played Origins…. yet!) and once every couple of years I get to go through the ritual of sitting on the couch with the lights off and the sound cranked up in the middle of the night for maximum effect. Now perhaps […]

    Preview: Silent Hill Shattered Memories

    Upon first hearing that a new Silent Hill was in the works I was super stoked. Upon hearing that it was to be on the Nintendo Wii I was not so super stoked. Primarily because previous titles on my HD screen just haven’t looked up to scratch and anything less then awesome is a let […]
