Should be an interesting game. Not that Konami has ever made a real game.

Here you go dude.

I'm pretty SURE you can find a real game in there.

DBLDeathDealer4584d ago

I stand corrected. I see Frogger. Great game.

Venoxn4g4584d ago

actually Konami made lots of great games.. Castlevania, Metal gear and others

xxxAnubisxxx4584d ago

Silent hill has always been just OK for me... Nothing awesome, nothing terrible. I may give the Collection a shot

when Team Silent takes it over

Noticeably_FAT4584d ago

The Silent Hill franchise has simply lost it's relevancy. People grow up and out of certain things, I think Silent Hill is one of those, I remember playing the original back when I was a teenager and it was great fun and scary and a good game, they have all gone downhill since then and I've found other games that do that formula better.

xxxAnubisxxx4584d ago

Completely agree... Like that guy above said, all of Konamis games have lost their relevancy.

ViralAyatane4583d ago

It's less about the formula and more about the team. A lot of the members from the earlier titles left somewhere around Silent Hill 3 or 4. They went on to make a good horror game called Siren

SH died when team silent left konami.

Interesting that Konami is releasing nothing of note and still enjoying high profits. I guess this is the allure to companies.

VenomUK16d ago

It was probably due to the half-hearted release of the Metal Gear Solid Collection v1.

Imagine the extra sales Konami could’ve made if it had put some effort into it.

JL293015d ago (Edited 15d ago )

Half hearted? MGS: MC is the best collection of Metal Gear games you can get with tons of bonus content.

Why are you mad? Because they didn't make the games 4K so you can see the low resolution textures and warping better? Most of you cry babies never even touched the MSX Metal Gears.

SimpleDad16d ago

Of course, they rereleased MGS series on modern platforms. Thank You Mr. Kojima.

Since The Contra Revival Shows Konami Still Cares, How About A New Castlevania?

Hanzala from eXputer: "Contra: Operation Galuga is a classic revival done right, but why hasn't Konami done the same yet for the bigger and more popular Castlevania?"

shinoff218352d ago

Slowdown. Let them get these suikoden games done first. Alot of us are still waiting for those

XiNatsuDragnel52d ago

Castlevania fighting game for wii needs to be remade plz

Aphrodia51d ago

well, the new C ontra was made by Wayforward, who have been taking sooooo many of these classic franchises and making new iterations of them. Imo they aren't very good at it. And I don't see operation galuga being a large enough success to possibly give them Castlevania.
