Is that....the font from the SH movie's logo? http://www.moviesonline.ca/... 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?
nah man. it looks more like the font from Sh1, but still the movies font is its own
Ah shit, that's not the font I meant. I meant this one: http://wallpapers.yah.in/ph... 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.
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?
They are boasting more puzzles and some form of side-questing in ths game. However, one can't help but wonder why they haven't shown a good example of a puzzle sequence and side-questing when the game is already nearing its release.
Hmmm, so that postman is on the cover, which most likely means he is very central to the game???
looks like something made in 5 minutes from photoshop.
it looks ugly, too much basic photoshop blends . the little scene in the top right looks random and out of place.
I like it...
That cover looks bloody awesome and scary!
i am so gonna play it and platinum all of silent hill :)
mehhh looks like a Saw game
I still luv Silent Hill and still have SH1 on PSone. I cant wait for this game. Nice cover BTW. wonder what the U.S. version will look like?
My comment got rated down to hidden because of an f-bomb that was directed at no one? Is this a christian children's site? The grotesqueness of the cover could just as easily be seen as offensive compared to a word that's been used for 100 hundred of years, even in great classic literature. It's pretty painful to be an intelligent atheist sometimes. FUCK this site and it's censorship.
