I'm against it. Silent Hill has always worked best as the unique hybrid it is. Puzzle/Adventure/Survival Horror/Thriller. How does SH not have character progression? Are we speaking in terms of character statistics or in terms of characterization? I might have my lingo muddled, but SH has tons of ch...

I'm all for something new and different. Maybe they'll really raise the bar. Maybe we'll get a really nifty psychological thriller that scares the shit out of us. That would be nice. Remember how the games used to be really scary because we hadn't seen anything like 'em before? At least, I hadn't. T...

What, what? What is this 'agreement' you speak of? I do not know it. :wink: I'm up for a new composer. I like a lot of Yamaoka's stuff, but I'm always interested in fresh blood, so to speak. He was sort of hit or miss for me, too, so it won't be that much of a loss for me if the soundtrack for this ...

I went to an elementary school that was built during the fifties, and we had lockers. Not that I ever used them. Or in high school for that matter. I love the old Silent Hill because it's this rinky-dinky little Northeast type tourist town. It kinda resembles my hometown, minus the lake and most of ...

The picture is kind of sad. Heather looks shell-shocked and has a thousand yard stare. Isn't there another promo pic of Heather where she's wearing green hot pants instead of her skirt? Probably pure marketing, but the breasts and motherhood connection is an interesting inference, especially when co...

Isn't it kind of weird that out of all the weapons in Homecoming, the most insignificant one works the best in the unlikeliest of places? I still prefer shotgunning the Siams, though. Once I had the dodge bit down, this game lost most of its difficulty. Maybe I'll play through it again sometime and ...

The Borley Mansion's Red Light sound effect creeps me out because it sounds like Tinnitus amped up to the nth degree. It's such a harmless, albeit annoying sound, but when paired with the ghostly fog and the knowledge that said fog is some spectral, evil force... That's just damn creepy. More creepy...

That's pretty nifty. I had no idea that pressing L3 activated zoom. I knew about equipping stuff on the item screen and pressing R3 to use it, but that's it. Cool!

I love the supernatural/occult references and mythology of the first one, along with its very H.P. Lovecraftian atmosphere. The story is so convoluted that it's ridiculous, and no matter how many times I play it, I'm always noticing something that I've missed previously. Shattered Memories, however,...

A series of echo messages about a nameless girl referred to as "Pigtails" pop up when Harry reaches Midwich High. Her boyfriend is upset with her for not putting out in one message, then there's another in which a guy praises her for looking like the "most perfect schoolgirl ever"...

KageReneko, that's pretty nifty. Thanks for sharing! This Easter Egg is kind of stupid....but there's a beat up old sign in the boathouse that says 'Henry's Bait' (I think it says Bait) and has a picture of a fish on it. That cracked me up because honestly, I think that a fish's face probably shows ...

I played and let my bro answer the questions, etc. He'd tell me what things he wanted me to zoom in on, etc. I ended up with Love Lost, and his first run through he got Wicked and Weak. Tis interesting, to say the least. And I agree with whoever it was that said it probably only notices which poster...

I still haven't figured out how to trigger hard-ass Cybil dressed in her SWAT gear. I always get sweet Cybil, who, strangely enough, reminds me of the cop from Fargo... Her decision to quit being a cop is a new one on me. The times I've played through she just tells Harry she'll trust her instincts,...

In retrospect, it's interesting to play through the game and see if you can figure out what some of the noises are. The growling in the concourse of the subway station is the sound a panther or other big cat would make, and lots of the stomping sounds remind me of listening to nails being driven int...

Cheryl's sleeping with her teacher is, I guess, her way of substituting for the lack of older male (father) attention in her life. Some girls really need a Daddy figure in their lives! :( Ya gotta admit, if that's the gist of it her sexuality is pretty abnormal. "You remind me of my dad/I reall...

The Larval Stalker at the hunting cabin in the woods. I thought it was an echo picture, so I kept trying to get closer to snap a good shot and my screen kept bugging out. Then it frikken screamed and scared the piss out of me! The underwater car bit made me very uncomfortable, and the ugly-ass Raw S...
