Idk if it's just me, but it seems like Silent Hill Downpour hasn't had any shine these past months leading to release (promotion). I didn't even know that it was coming out this month.

Edit: There hasn't been that much excitement or enthusiasm on the SH forums I go to either. Almost like a ghost town. Konami should have never split up the original SH team or gave the franchise to other developers *smh*.

TrendyGamers4461d ago

They probably just wanted to avoid Mass Effect 3 marketting as much as possible. You'll probably start seeing ads next week with a commercial advertising Downpour, the HD Collection, and Book of Memories at the same time.

I'm a fanboy of SH , and I seriously doubt Downpour will be anything good, if not terrible.

I don't get excited about this game, SHM.

TrendyGamers4461d ago

At least we have the HD collection out the week after if it isn't very good.

I am willing to give Silent Hill: Downpour a chance. It doesn't look it's going to be another Silent Hill: Homecoming which depended way too much on Pyramid Head for sales. Vatra games are trying to be original while following the rules of the old SH which made the series great. The only flaw is that they still appear to have added from the movies as well which I am not a big fan of.

I am very intrested to see the outcome.....

Tales of Graces: F, Yakuza of the Dead and The Journey. :D

TrendyGamers4460d ago

Pretty good week ahead of you!

tiffac0084460d ago

I know, I've been saving for these guys. :)

Redcrimson1014460d ago

U pretty much said it for me Dante112. They should've made the original team who made the first three silent hills to creat downpour. I know it's going to suck. Shame.

Tales Of Graces Ƒ Retro Review – Holding Out For a Hero

Gary Green said: Namco Bandai heard the call of many fans asking for the PlayStation release of Tales of Graces which was originally released seemingly exclusively for the Wii back in 2009. If you’re acquainted with the Tales series then Graces f won’t be something entirely new to you, yet if you’re a newcomer then you’ll find a plethora of gameplay mechanics and nuances that distinguish this series from other JRPGs. While the game finds itself following the traditional archetype of JRPGs, such as a somewhat clichéd story, Graces has something to offer to both veterans and newcomers alike.

I mostly disagree with Downpour's position. Yeah, the game is not amazing by any stretch of the imagination but is much better than the HD Collection and Homecoming. The main issue is the performance, but that was mitigated by the patches, especially on the PS3. Personally, I put it a little behind Origins and The Room.

Having Restless Dreams as a different entry from Silent Hill 2 is also a choice.

bfrye26215d ago

Normally, we would not consider it a different game (Restless Dreams), but since it had a very different critical reception and had new content, it was allowed. As for Downpour, I would agree, but since that one is subjective, we let him make his case for the placement.

gold_drake215d ago

silent hill 2 is definitely the best one out of those.

for me personally, the whole ritual/cult stuff was always so weird to me in all the other games.

CrimsonWing69214d ago

No disrespect but I put SH2 over 1. 1 is fantastic, but 2 took it all up a level.

bfrye26214d ago

We agree, that is why the writer put it in top place!
