Silent Hill returns with new effort from Hideo Kojima and Guillermo del Toro

Remember that nifty little P.T. interactive trailer on PlayStation Network? Well…


Considering that most people have discovered the secret anyway (and a few are getting stuck trying to get through it), we've finally uncovered just what the mystery is behind that P.T. interactive trailer that debuted on PlayStation Network yesterday. And it's a nice surprise.

Bloody Disgusting posted the teaser trailer that awaits for those who complete the P.T. demo, and we've decided to share it with you in case you're stuck. It's none other than a new Silent Hill game, under the name Silent Hills. It's a collaborative effort between game director Hideo Kojima and Guillermo del Toro, the man who brought us Pacific Rim and The Strain.

If that wasn't cool enough, Silent Hills appears to have a big lead in the main role, none other than Norman Reedus from The Walking Dead!

Konami hasn't provided any more information about the game, but you can bet we'll be getting some soon. In the meantime, who discovered the trailer by playing through the demo?

      I don't think I ever played any of the Silent Hill games. This may be a good time to try it out!

        Silent Hill 2 easily makes a best-of-all-time list.

        I had to play the first two cross legged on the couch because I was too afraid that something would pull me under it by my feet and eat me. They were a tension building balance between creepy-crawlee creepy and psychological creepy. 3 is good to OK (had a great sound track). 4 did some cool, new stuff (it hit some David Lynch notes pretty well), but it really wasn't a Silent Hill game (they re-branded another in-house game). The rest were contracted out and succeeded to varying degrees.

        The first three are great, as others have said, minus some control issues. They're also victims of the era, meaning they use game mechanics that games just don't do anymore because people realized how annoying those mechanics were. I had to push my friend to go past the ladder-filled Labyrinth section where you saw the load screen more than you saw gameplay. That kind of thing aside, the atmosphere is amazing and the story is creepy and pretty deep, on all three games.

        Whatever you do though, don't get the Silent Hill Collection for 360/PS3. It's a pretty bad quality port that actually introduces more issues, mostly because Konami lost the source code to the release versions of the games (yes, seriously) and had to build from some beta source code they found instead. As such, there are extra bugs never seen in the original releases.

      I gave up quick last night. It was a rare thunderstorm in AZ and I got to the part where the door cracks open a little, roaches pour out, and a baby started crying and I was straight up like "Fuck this" and I played some Guardians of the Galaxy pinball. That was some creepy tension building ass atmosphere.

      Video games have turned me into a jaded cynic. Saw something about this from a friend who is big into the Walking Dead and assumed it was just some Norman Reedus fan wank.
