GamesCom 2011: Silent Hill Book Of Memories Is Not Exactly What We Anticipated

When we learned that WayForward was working on a brand-new Silent Hill title for the PlayStation Vita we were extremely excited

WayForward has a terrific pedigree, and we think horror games feel at home on portable systems — there's something personal about playing a good horror game in bed with headphones, right? Unfortunately, Silent Hill: Book Of Memories isn't quite what we had in mind..

Zavvi's Metal Gear Solid Ultimate HD Collection Is Oh So Tempting

To be fair, the easiest way to complete Konami's Metal Gear Solid HD Collection is to add in MGS4 and a copy of the original PlayStation classic

You can make the package sweeter by tossing it all in a steel tin and saying, "Seventy quid, please." And that's pretty much exactly what Zavvi has done. The Metal Gear Solid Ultimate HD Collection is limited to just 4,000 copies worldwide, and..

In Japan you'll get a download code for the original Metal Gear Solid title, while in the West you'll get an HD remake of Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker. We think that's a fair trade. (Right, Japan?) Thankfully, both regional variants will come with Metal Gear Solid 3 'Subsistence', meaning the..

Silent Hill: Downpour Certainly Looks The Part

We're still a touch concerned about Silent Hill: Downpour -- it's in development at an unknown studio and we've still seen very little of the game

But one thing we have seen are a host of glorious screenshots, and while they don't reveal much about the game's narrative or mechanics, they at least conclude that the game is looking super pretty. Check out the lighting in the screenshot above — it's..

When We Think Of Silent Hill, We Don't Necessarily Think Of Korn

Konami's released a double-barrel of information regarding its upcoming survival horror title, Silent Hill: Downpur

The first is not so offensive; Downpour will include full support for stereoscopic 3D televisions, potentially enhancing the game's gloomy, psychological experience. The second announcement is pretty disappointing for Silent Hill fans though. Korn's releasing a song for the game's..
