Siren: New Translation trailer

Siren: New Translation trailer

Sony surprised everyone this week by annoucing Siren: New translation for the PS3, with a release date in Japan set in August. The trailer sure seems to indicate a quite scary game, as it should be for a remake of the first game of the series.

I love Japanese horror, and this game looks fucking sick. I hear Sony's got a few more surprises to be announced soon, so that's great too.

The trailer was pretty good up until the end, then it started sucking. When you heard the voice acting and the tempo picked, that was just bad. It was super creepy and atmospheric before that.

Anyways, i tried the first one on PS2, but after about 30 minutes to an hour i got so bored that i stopped playing and never picked it up again...I guess i'll wait for some reviews or something before deciding if this is shit or awesome.

Siren 2 is the best "alternative" horror I've seen on a console.
The first Siren was too much cryptic and elaborate to challenge.

Wow, I had no idea they were doing a remake! I really wanted to play through the 1st game but the awful voice acting just ruined it. If its better this time round I can finally sink into the atmosphere as it was intended to be (fingers crossed for Japanese voices included).

Not too keen on the American voice overs or the silly giggling from the zombie nurses.

We'll see....

I always found Fatal Frame to be the best alternative horror game

I just love Japanese games, espcially when they're well done and on a Sony console. (I've grown up with Sony, really)

    MrWhite I recently played the original quake in VR, and it almost reminded me and felt like the first time I played that game back in 1996. It brings the tension back to it, and its just really fun. (3 Hours ago)

    MrWhite Not sure why I quoted myself there. (3 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @MrWhite: It can be overcome with time and a bit of diligence. You can build a tolerance and you probably played games that were a cert to fuck you up if you hadn't "VR legs" yet. (3 Hours ago)

    MrWhite @droezelke: Motion sickness, you mean. I get it too. I think most people get it to some extent. I get it from cars. Even used to get it from normal gaming with certain games. (3 Hours ago)
