silent hill 4 reference

Post by dizzy »

did anyone else notice that the mail for room 213 hasnt been picked up in weeks? even tho its not the same building and you find out later that the guys name is andy or somehting, i still liked this little reference to henry. maybe andy found a hole in his bathroom too and thats why he hasnt been home in a while. haha

I thought it was more a reference to the SH3 easter egg that refers to James, but who knows.

also, henry lived in room 312 i think, not 213.

some other SH references or possible references:

sh2 reference: 9 saves (well, 6 here, but the shape makes it that way)
Image
also: dog costume-sh2 dog end

sh1 references:
manifestations of delusions memo
white claudia in motel

sh3
vincent costume
Image

the holes: ref. to sh2, same with the long hallway in room 500 and the note about someone making a hole

Lets not forget the Dog in the UFO ending for SH2.
Funnily, when I see the Trifor- I mean the 9 saves in 0 I think of the Legend of Zelda.

Henry didn't live in room 312--he lived in 302. James and Mary stayed in 312. The reason the mail is piled up in Andy's mailbox is because he's been on vacation, not because he's disappeared.

The name Andy is also a reference to the Play Novel. It could even be said that the store name "Andy's Books" is a joke about the character. Get it? Play Novel? Books? Ha ha ha ha.....ha.....

the bookstore was in SH1 though, which was released before the play novel.

THose same stairs, in your second play through, you get the moon key for the UFO ending there. Examine the wall again and Travis says

I thought the Vincent costume was pretty cool. I always wear it and it made me stop hating on Vincent.

As for the numbers:

213 --> 312 --> 302

I guess you can put it that way.

The good thing about it is that you wont need to finish the game after inserting the code, the costume would be available right after you put in the code.

Is it Andys room where you find the dead monster and it says " someone made a hole here" it made me think of james when i read it but i guess it could be a sh4 reference and the dead monster is andy.

what is the konami code
