E3: Attract mode of Silent Hill 5

E3: Attract mode of Silent Hill 5

After the other day's long gameplay video, here comes the attract mode of Silent Hill: Homecoming, the cinematic that plays when you keep the menu screen untouched for a few minutes. Note that it includes a brand new song from Akira Yamaoka, in the vein of Silent Hill 3's theme.

I thought the song was very fitting?

i've always thought vocals in silent hill theme songs never really worked, with SH1/2 having my fave tunes so far. but this song actually isnt half bad.

Makes the game look a lot more appealing than the gameplay videos.

Looking suitably grim.

The theme is horrible ... eurk! SH4's attract sequence was much better than this ... Im a bit disappointed.

listen to the SH4 one

Was that black guy holding the shotgun voiced by Samual L. Jackson? Looks like a good game I reckon i'm gonna buy it.

where, the fuck, is this graphical quality?

The game just seems it had a GINORMOUS downgrade from when they first showed it for the first time, to never recover again.

No creatures, no mystery ??? have you EVER played a Silent hill game before ??
Commented on 2008-07-22 15:52:58
really bad quality. specially the audio.

pimping this game out to new developers was a stupid idea,
i miss the creepy uncanny valley character models, and the "filth" that covered the creatures as well as some of the enviroments..they really went to a lot of effort to turn this into a generic title..if they fail to add an Alien ending, SH is dead to me.

i'm talking about the attract mode video genius. that is what this thread is about, right?

keep up.

this doesn't look good a all... maybe the game will be so immersive that the graphical weakness will fade away (maybe)

(and btw, wtf with the "dickipedia" advert on the main page ? Just look downstairs)

Nothing beat the intro song of Silent Hill 2.

"Are you maria? :O"

try again.

The weelchair falling, the room turning to silent hill, the model isn't the same, everything is downgraded, textures, geometry. And that was the first footage released.
You could say the only thing remaining is the "turning into SH" effect.

well its hard to show the elements from that first gameplay footage in areas that are completely different. the wheelchair falling is still present and correct since i've seen it recently. it looks the same, geometry, textures, lighting, everything. if you cant see it, well, too bad for you i guess?!?

i was diggin that song i really loved the last song with lyrics it was your not here right.
Commented on 2008-07-22 22:01:51
If the pickiest person on Gamersyde (KORNdog ;) ) says it's the same, it's most probably the same.

Don't know why but the song reminds me of Janis Joplin.

I think the chinese mail order brides at the bottom of images is still the best advertisement on this site

Guess you've missed the many gameplay trailers, go visit Gametrailers.com and see. The game isn't downgraded, hell, No gameplay footage was shown in this video. Not the best quality either.
