"Last year, following the release of the extraordinary playable teaser for Silent Hills, I wrote an enthusiastic blog in which I described how I was physically shaking with excitement when the game was announced. "Today, I’m shaking with rage."
Yep agree, this is up there with still no Shenmue 3 & Colonial Marines. Kojima really has pissed off somebody or something, maybe he put salt in the bosses tea instead of sugar by mistake.
Kojima make tea? I bet it takes him a week "it must be perfect"
I'm awaiting the launch trailer for the cup of tea cut by Kojima himself. Shame if it was a cup of coffee he could have gotten Yoji Shinkawa to do some latte art.
The PT demo in itself is the best horror game I've ever played. This is a f*cking disgrace.
The first time I played it with my surround sound I was blow away by how great it was... Hearing the distorted radio say "look behind you" and hearing the ghost's raspy breathing behind me was terifying!!
Silent hills could've not only saved the series but the state of AAA horror itself. I would argue we haven't had a truly great AAA horror game since Condemned in 2005. Games like Dead Space and Evil Within are fun to play but not scary. There are some good indie horrors, but i remember when the horror genre led both in sales and innovation, now we just play a bunch of RE 4 clones and Amnesia clones lol...
Should be a criminal offense to cancel a game with such expectation behind it after P.T.
A moment of silence.
Everything seemed perfect, the awesome announcement with P.T confirming that really was a new Silent Hill, a game that would be made by Kojima, Del Toro and Norman Reedus as a protagonist, the hype was huge. For now, we will remember as a game that could be perfect and probably never gonna happen, like Shenmue 3.
I have been teased. And it hurts.
Who the hell is Del Toro and we don't need Reamus. Kojima is a significant loss but they already said, as I knew, the series will continue. I just want refined sequel to Silent Hill: Book of Memories, we don't need those guys for it.
Lol who is Del Toro... Pan's Labrynth? Pacific Rim ? Hellboy?
A refined sequel to book of memories is the opposite of what everyone else wants. We do need talent to make good games.
Who cares about silent hill continuing in this sorry state ? Not evne Konami did , as the franchise only resurfaced because of Kojima being tied to it . People cared again precisely because great talent and people with a vision gathered around to make a good , great even Silent Hill game , something we havent seen after SH4 . But by all mean keep supporting a dead corpse because of its glorious name .
I guarantee you that most people excited for this were because of P.T., as well as Kojima and Del Toro's involvement. The phrases 'Silent Hill' and 'glorious name' haven't been in the same sentence for over a decade now.
I know , wich is why the above reaction is hilarious . Either way we'll obviously follow the project under another name , should it be revived
Who is Del Toro? A freaking genius!
Cronos - The Devils Backbone and also the upcoming Crimson Peak.
u basically cut most of the Key People involved.
It was too beautiful for our ugly world.
As a big Silent Hill fan I'm mad as well.
Yeah I am hear by boycotting Konami. They are forever on my blacklist, after MGS 5, I am not buying any game published by them. Silent Hils looked like such a promising title. Just going off of the P.T Demo, it could have been some Hong special.
This is the worst gaming news I've heard in years. I'm so disappointed. I was more exited for this game than anything that has been announced. This and finding out that Clarkson was fired from Top Gear, killing the show.... Crappy couple days.
after MGS 5 lol
Believe it or not, I was more excited about Silent Hills. I'm a bit concerned about MGS 5 being open world. I know there's probably no reason to worry, but I do wonder if it is going to truly feel like Metal Gear. You'd think my mind would be at ease after playing Ground Zeros, but nope.
its not cancelled yay, i feel better now, reedus's contract expired with konami, which is fine, i could give two ***** about that girl, but at least we know its not cancelled, and im sure konami with all the backlash is smart enough to keep going with the same p.t style horror hopefully del torro was told to come back AHHH!! WHO AM I KIDDING, MY EMOTIONS ARE SO ******UP!! hold me kitty *grabs cat*
Del Toro was working on it, because he and Kojima have had a long time dream of working together on a project.
This was my #2 reason for buying a ps4. Bloodborne was #1. I'll just say it, I didn't have a #3. :-(
Just saw the tweet this morning. The "ONLY'Demo that scared the crap out of me! SMDH...
Is Silent Hills cancelled? I never would have guessed with the 100 articles about it :0 SHOCKING(!)
An abomination, konami is absolutely dead to me
I don't think its a long shot so I'd like to see this end with Kojima starting up his own team to develop a horror game and just pick up Norman and Guillermo del Toro if he can.
I am just not ok with this.
The only travesty here, is that Konami owns this IP (Silent Hill) and they have no idea what to do with it. I hope they sell it to another publisher, or stop making Silent Hill games all together. PT/Silent Hills was a cool concept demo, I really enjoyed it, but with that said. It never felt like a Silent Hill game. It felt more like a haunted house and I'm sure this game wasnt in active development, so this was an easy game to cancel.
Is it? Is it really? Did we really want to see Kojima kill of Daryl? If he did, we would've rioted like the entire Internet's swore, right?
Raving fanboy disagrees making me sick. Sheep. I'm glad this project is down just for you guys. Can't wait for what's next in the series.
