Images of Silent Hill

Images of Silent Hill

I calmed down a little bit since the last time I covered Silent Hill: Homecoming. It's important to let a game have its chance before passing judgement. Konami sends some new images that are still missing the good old filter from other entries in the series, but are still much better than before (that doesn't mean much, actually). The focus on Chris' face is well done.

how can a game be so gritty, and clean at the same time?

It looks better in movement, but still, im disapointed... hope the gameplay and atmosphere is good.

These screens look much better than the previous ones, but still nothing compares to the game in motion.

I have read a huge 5-page preview in the actual Man!ac (german game-mag) and personally I cannot wait - looks like they are doing a fantastic job ... don't forget it's made by Double-Helix (formerly known as "The Collective", the Buffy team from part 1 one on Xbox) and directed by Konami, so it might be a really good SH again (let's just forget The Room) ... hope they get those newly added QTE's right ...

... the movements of those nasty nurses looks ace (although it reminds me a bit of the Buffy model they used in the first Xbox game)

I've always been a Silent Hill fan but I'm so afraid this'll end up like the fourth installment again. I couldn't stand going through that game more than once, I went as far as cheated just to see the alternate endings.

I can't believe this is coming from you after your nitpicking on the "lack of pores" in MGS4. Personal preference on visuals is one thing but this? Just... *shakes head*

Let's hope so...

Still a bit sceptic. After having seen Alone in the Dark in motion, the SH vids weren't very impressiv. Only the vid where the first nurse arrives, out of the toilet, that was great.

hehe, I did the same thing. I loved the exploring aspect of the previous games, but due those annoying ghosts, i couldn't do that. So I used a trainer, to have unfinite of those cross swords, so I could pin and trap all the ghosts for ever :) After that, the game was a silent hill game again ;)

Man, I don't like the damn close on his face... it seems as if SH4 character model was in high Resolution, it would look better than this one. Hair looks crappy too.

I love Silent Hill too much... I can't afford to have high expectations, it would kill me to be disappointed... so i just think that this will be crappy... maybe this way I'm not that disappointed when it comes out.

The nurses make the bones rise in my pants.
1) There are no bones, just veins
2) boneS? So you have multiple penises?
3) Being aroused by freak nurses is weird
4) iGag...what an original name to come up with, and very appropriate of your comment
5) Don't create alternative accounts, you will be banned
6) I see you've already been banned......

Some environments look really flat and have horrendous textures...

To save the day, the pieces of furniture and characters have better details (but are still not so great)

They better get things homogenous (or show that their post effects cover all the flaws).

I liked SH1 and 2, didn't like 3 and 4, so i don't really know what to expect. We ll see.
