There Will Apparently Be a ‘Silent Hill’ Pachinko Game
Silent Hill, once the crowning jewel of the survival horror genre, boasting grotesque and terrifying enemies and telling the darkest and most sinister of stories will now be a Pachinko game.
I really wish I was making this up. I really do, you guys. You have no idea how much I feel burned by this.
Yes, the frightfully amazing Silent Hills game that was shown off in the PT demo – a demo that scared the crap outta me more than any game has in recent history despite it being only a demo – brought to you by two masters of telling twisted tales, Guillermo Del Toro and Hideo Kojima, has been scrapped with no apologies, but here’s a whole bunch of mini games with the Silent Hill name slapped on it to make a quick buck. That’s good enough, right? Also, because fuck you.
The video runs a little over seven minutes long and doesn’t seem to show much in terms of story, although I did notice the man running away from Pyramid Head (or Red Pyramid) is James Sunderland from Silent Hill 2. I highly doubt this is a continuation of his story or a reboot of SH2, but rather just stuffing the most notable characters from the series in there. It’s unlikely that we will ever see a console version of this, but a mobile version… well, seems like Konami wants to head in that direction…
As of right now, the game is only slated to come out in Japan in October, so no word as to if we will get it here in the states… yet. And hopefully will never see this brutal and shameful cash-in of the series either.
You know, even at it’s most silliest, SH still never reached this low. Not even with SH2‘s dog ending.
‘Stranger Things’ VR Trailer Puts the Upside Down in Your Living Room
Stranger Things is getting very real this year. It appears that the experience will go virtual and bring the world of Mind Flayers and all kinds of other Upside Down creatures into your very own living room. Good luck keeping the carpet clean.
The folks at Tender Claws are bringing the game to Meta Quest 2 and Meta Quest Pro. All in and around the Fall of 2023.
Perhaps best of all we are going to be playing as Vecna while trapped in the Upside Down and beyond. The entire thing looks pretty dang cool over all and certainly has the aesthetic to drag you into this world.
The description for Stranger Things VR goes like this:
Play as Vecna and head to the Upside Down in Stranger Things VR. Check out the trailer to see some of the creepy areas and creatures as you invade people’s minds, harness telekinetic powers, and take revenge against Hawkins, Eleven and crew.
