This is the first person who discovered it, the news broke out after she posted her stream of playing it, and discovering the ending.

The irony is that when this happened live, there were maybe like six people in her channel, only one of whom was bothering to talk in chat — and now half the frigging planet has seen it.

This is incredibly great news for me. I'm something of a Silent Hill heretic, in that I enjoyed all of the games on varying levels. Yes, that includes Homecoming. tongue Del Toro's involvement has sent my hype into the stratosphere, though, as he's one of my favorite filmmakers working today. He also happens to have an eye for horror, as well.

And the extra S... maybe it stands for hope? [lol]

Well. Kojima will certainly handle the inevitable UFO ending(s) well.

[up]That comic is about accurate. I just played it over at a friend's house and we ended up quitting after an hour and a half of no clue what the fuck to do even with looking at videos online. We got to a part where your flashlight sometimes inexplicably changes color when you go through the "exit" door. I think that a good deal of what happens is randomized. Absolutely nailed the series' atmosphere, though.

Somehow you know that the time is right.

If it's randomized, then that's what Silent Hill sorely needs. Being unpredictable and catching the player by surprise can really add to the horror.

Kojima said it's meant to be really hard. Apparently foilable by blind luck though....like how the final puzzle in Fez had to be solved with brute force without anyone actually working out the solution.

It seems like people are being lazy with the clues to me. I've seen many people pay no attention to the messages or reversed audio.

You actually need to think when it comes to puzzles and the events are randomized?

Sounds nice. I might download and play it when it's not dark.

I think it's funny how Kojima said that he expected people to start finishing PT next week, and someone beat it within a few hours of its release.

I'll admit it, I'm interested in how this will turn out. I love everyone involved in this. I have faith that Guillermo del Toro especially only does projects that he is interested in, so hopefully, this will live up toto the Silent Hill name. I've wondered for a little while what Kojima would do with an SH game, and even what a del Toro-styled SH project would be like.

I wonder if Ron Perlman will have a role in the game because del Toto loves to work with him. grin

I think that Kojima is an X-factor for the game because... I'm not sure what he'll do with an SH-style story. If he can bring the same heart and sensitivity that he does to Metal Gear Solid to this project, then it could be... the best SH game in a long, long time.

Don't you think it's interesting that the trailer features a snippet of the "Silent Hill" theme from the first game, and that there's a glimpse of the Halo of the Sun (the Silent Hill cult's symbol) at the end of it?

I was trying to understand what Reedus' character was doing in the trailer, and he seems to be following a trail of blood somewhere. Is he looking for someone that's hurt... or someone that he hurt?

Silent Hill looks different in the trailer, like it's a different neighborhood that we've never seen before. Like, that part of town felt more modern to me than the other parts of town featured in other games.

I kind of hope that the game isn't in first-person because I want to see Reedus' rugged handsomeness in third-person, glorious HD. tongue

I hope this is a reboot. I have little hopes the new writers can follow the story after 4, while ignoring the rest of the games (Konami won't allow it). If it's a reboot, I wouldn't mind everything being different, I would cautiously welcome a fresh story.

Well, IGN's walkthrough certainly spooked me enough to get my attention. I wonder whose idea was the creepy fetus baby thing in the sink, Kojima's or del Toro's?

On a note related to Silent Hill, if they (somehow) decide to do a movie that's actually faithful to the story of the first game, does anyone think Bryan Cranston would make a good Harry Mason?

[up]He could pull off the look, except I think that he's getting a bit too old for the part now. Harry is in his early 30s if I remember correctly.

[up][up]As Yahtzee said on one occasion, Silent Hill would not work as a movie, because it has to be interactive, and you need to play it alone in a big mansion at night. Movies are experienced in a theater full of other people.

I don't think a good Silent Hill movie is impossible at all. The first one had the Otherworld sequences down to near perfection, it was just that everything else had a rather terrible case of Shitty Writing-syndrome.

As for Cranston, he's pretty much the male equivalent of Meryl Streep these days, I'm sure he could've pulled it off. I don't think much would be lost if Harry's age got bumped up a few notches, he wasn't the most complex of characters.

A two-year-old quote from Guillermo del Toro regarding his former video game project inSANE, which may actually be relevant:

We were going to go to a lot of developers after THQ, but it seems like we’re going to be developing it after the first meeting we had. I can’t disclose where it was, but we went to a great developer on the first meeting and it seems that they’re picking it up because they love the package.

If this means what I think it means, then Kojima and del Toro have already been working on this game under the table for two years. From what little I've heard about it, inSANE seems likely to be exactly the kind of concept that could be easily retooled into a Silent Hill game, and possibly more than one.
