"You’ll probably hear something this summer to be announced," Yamaoka said. “I think it’s the one you’re kinda hoping to hear about."
The Medium 2?
After playing the Medium just for a couple of hours, it doesn't deserve to be in this conversation.
LOL...first comment. Thank you! I will give you a dislike because its 17 ...its fantastic! Brilliant!
That wouldn't even be funny. That would make this guy the biggest troll in videogames history lol
If The Medium was a PS exclusive Sully would think it’s the best thing ever. Heck, he probably thinks Destruction All-stars is good 😂😂
That would be even sadder than it's current metacritics score 71.
I hope it's true. Konami needs a comeback.
Without Hideo's involvement, and especially without Del Toro's, I'm not interested. I mean, sure, they made great entries without them in the past, but now that I've seen what it can be with them involved...
You're joking right? Yeah maybe it would have been cool with del toro involved but even he's made mediocre movies like crimson peak (which was the closest thing he's done to something like silent hill) so who knows. And kojima would make it an empty open world where the monsters would have health bars and there would be ads for season 2 of norman reedus the ride everywhere. No thanks. They never needed them before and as long as they get some of the memebers of Team Silent invovled and as long as Yamaoka is involved then it will be at least decent if not great. Even an average Silent Hill game is better than any of the survival horror they make now.
@the professional. Del Toro has also made critically acclaimed movies like the pans labyrinth and the shape of water, and won the academy on both of those. Which is pretty hard to do once let alone twice, so dead wrong on that front. Also Hideo is one of the best game developers alive, has shown and proven it more times than almost any other single developer. These are just facts. Your name should be “The amateur” What have you ever created? What have you done that is 100 perfect? You have some pretty high standards let me know? I do agree that if they got team silent back together that would be the best option for the game. I would imagine those two working on a video game together with a good budget and time, would turn out pretty amazing.
No it's original members of Team Silent that need to be onboard. Then we might get a proper Silent Hill game again.
Kojima needs a comeback. Konami should just sell their IPs because they’re done and sitting on a good set of rights.
Gosh if theres one thing I will always remember its the music from Silent Hill. Must be hard to compose static noise.
The last decent Silent Hill (2003) was Downpour and that assuming that you manage to make the game not crash. While the last good Silent Hill was probably 3 (2012). So is far past the time for this series to come back to life. Just hope that is not another butchered remaster or remake.
Sorry but if original devs from team silent are not involved then I've got no interest. Obviously Akira yamaoka is a win but he's only one ingredient. It's been so long since this series was good that most people have never even heard of team silent and think it's a series by kojima 🤦🏻♂️ PT was great but it was not Silent Hill. Silent Hill was 1-4 everything after that was fanfiction (some decent, most awful). I say all of this with a heavy heart as SH is my favourite franchise. This series is dead though. Nothing would make me happier than to be proven wrong believe me.
If this is Silent Hill reboot for PS5 it will be huge. N4G will be on fire for this announcement.
If the rumors about Sony taking helm and getting team silent back together are true, then I can’t wait. If this ends up being another half-hearted attempt by Konami to keep the series alive so they can make more pachinko machines, then no thanks.
Sadly doubt that is true, we’ve had that same rumor about MGS for years and we are still waiting for even a tiny drop of information :( More likely there are no more MGS + SH, or Konami makes them and they aren’t great.
Hoping for a sequel to The Medium, but it is probably a bit soon for that.
Off topic! The Medium has nothing to do with this topic.
Akira Yamaoka does the soundtrack for it so it does have relevance
Exactly - it’s his most recent project. Ironically he mentions The Medium in his own post in this thread... go figure.
Silent Hill 1 to 4 are considered to be the best oh the series and are the king of horror games. There are OK horror games out there but nothing like SH. It is an insult to mention or even pretend that The Medium is even close to SH. I hope they make a SH1 remake like they did with FF7 at least because making a new SH game is very difficult if you don't have team silent members or Kojima around.
You mentioned The Medium? But above you said it was off topic... It’s insulting to suggest that Akira’s work on The Medium was not great.
