Is that....the font from the SH movie's logo?

Holy shit, it is.

*le sigh* I can't help but wonder what the game series would be like if the movie had never been made. Would they be different? The later games seem to be too influenced by the film, as opposed to the earlier games.

No it isn't the same font. Are you blind?

BubbleSniper2665d ago

nah man. it looks more like the font from Sh1, but still the movies font is its own

Pozzle2665d ago (Edited 2665d ago )

Ah shit, that's not the font I meant. I meant this one:

Similar font, though the letters are more jumbled and blurred. It's starting to look more and more like Homecoming (i.e. inspired by the movie) with each update. That's all I'm saying. I hope I'm wrong though.

I still think the fonts are different. And honestly, this game really doesn't seem to have anything to do with the movie except, you know, it takes place in Silent Hill.

This one deals with an escaped convict trying to escape. That's pretty different from Mother trying to find / save her child.

Meh, Silent hill went down the hill lately.
I'll take the HD collection.

blumatt2665d ago

Yeah, the older Silent Hill games were the best. HD Collection preordered (PS3) yesterday. :) Can't wait!!

I would take a second look at this one. The developers are Czech, and they said they hated most everything from the American made Silent Hills, and they were taking it back to its roots. Puzzles and atmosphere. There are moral choices, and the graphics looked pretty. The main character - whatshisface - seems interesting, too. A prison escapee, who knows what kind of demons he has in his past! Also, this silent hill is the biggest / most filled of them all. I mean, it really sounded like they wanted to take it in the right direction..

I'm not saying it's going to be good or anything, because hell if I know at this point, but I just wouldn't write it off yet if I were you. I'm certainly keeping my eye on it, and I'm also keeping my fingers crossed. It would be really nice to have a brand new Silent Hill that's actually worth playing!

I don't find it very appealing, personally. I'll be interested to see if the US art is different.

I'll still be picking this up on launch.

They continue the proud tradition of close ups on terrified terrified people's mouths.

Am I just imagining it or is that face on the Downpour cover gonna be like the janitor from the movie?
