It's raining, it's pouring
If, like us, you totally forgot Silent Hill: Downpour was even coming out (it’s available now apparently), then you’re probably partially to blame for the unclear future of Czech developer Vatra Games. The studio’s future has been plunged into doubt following a management reshuffle at parent company Kuju...
It may seem like an eternity since we last got to play a Silent Hill title, but at least March should make up for the drought
Konami's announced that three titles in the survival horror series will release during the month, with the Silent Hill HD Collection first out of the blocks on March 6th. It'll be followed by new entry Silent Hill: Downpour on March 13th, with PlayStation Vita exclusive..
If you've been waiting desperately for more Silent Hill, then you're about to get your wish
Konami's attached dates to three Silent Hill titles that are all due to release in early 2012 — so even if the world ends before the year's out, at least you'll get your fix of the premium horror franchise. First up is the Silent Hill HD Collection, which is due out on January 24th. That game bundles the..
We don't think anybody expected Silent Hill: Downpour to release this year
It's just taken a long, long time for Konami to announce anything official. But according to Eurogamer the game's not coming until next year, somewhere between the dates January and March 2012. The game was originally due out in November, but Konami's been keeping schtum about the project for a good couple of months now. The..
You know what? Silent Hill: Downpour actually looks pretty good
Sure, we doubt it will ever live up to the heights of the series, but then we don't expect it to. The original couple of Silent Hill games were extraordinary, so it's no surprise. What we don't understand is why Konami is doing its very best to give fans a bad impression. This TGS trailer is fine if you turn the audio off and replace..
co.uk</a> has plumped up a November 4th release date for the previously release date-less Silent Hill: Downpour. Publisher Konami originally attached a late October release to the game, but has since gone quiet about the game's launch schedule. With the Silent Hill Collection due out in late October, the window would certainly make some sense. The retailer also posted an..
Akira Yamaoka's audio has been a key component of Silent Hill franchise for the past ten years or so
But Vatra Games' Brian Gomez does not think the absence of the series legendary composer will have too much of an impact on his studio's upcoming Silent Hill: Downpour. "I was worried when we lost him, we lost him really early on in Downpour. But I was a big fan of Dexter already, so I'm happy..
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..
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..
Konami's released its launch trailer for Silent Hill: Downpour
The Vatra Games developed PlayStation 3 sequel is due for release in the Winter, which we're assuming means early next year. Some of the audio design in this trailer is great — Vatra seem to understand the psychological nature of the franchise. A prisoned protagonist certainly opens up plenty of potential for exploration. If Vatra can..
We sure that we're not the only people that adore rain in video games
The moment we hear the spattering of rain-drops, our eyes light up. We're not really sure why, but there's something wicked about games that take place in the rain, right? As you'd expect, Konami's upcoming Silent Hill: Downpour has a big emphasis on rain. As a celebration for reaching a Facebook follower milestone, the publisher..
Probably not, right
You have? Uh-huh. That's a bit weird. Anyway. Konami wants to see your very best "spine chilling sculpture" as part of a Silent Hill: Downpour contest on Facebook. The winning tombstone will get rendered into the final game. Which is pretty awesome. Konami will pick its six favourite sculptures on February 10th and open the competition up to public voting. Good luck if..

Consider us cautiously optimistic for Silent Hill: Downpour
We're big fans of the franchise and horror games in general, but unfortunately the series has taken a turn for rubbish in recent years. Silent Hill: Downpour appears to be heading in the right direction though. We think. Maybe. Hopefully. (Please be good.) Konami's officially confirmed the game this morning, tagging an autumn release on..
It's been a while since we got word on Vatra Games' upcoming entry into the Silent Hill franchise
The game was announced and trailered at last year's E3, but Konami's been notably quiet about the horror title since then. Thankfully GameInformer's broken the silence, announcing the game's official name: Silent Hill: Downpour. Apparently the game's set on the outskirts of Silent Hill and includes a..
Somewhere amongst the E3 hustle and bustle, we managed to skip on posting one of the things we're most excited for: the new Silent Hill game
Despite not having a full title yet, this lengthy trailer for the tentatively named Silent Hill 8 goes pretty in-depth into the latest Silent Hill's psyche. The game appears to revolve around a group of prisoners who end up in the ever so pleasant town of..
Consider our optimism at the announcement of a new Silent Hill game well and truly slashed. Rumours suggest that Vatra Games are to turn Konami's premium horror-franchise into a ten-a-penny first-person shooter. We just died a little inside. The report comes courtesy of GameRep, who claim that the studio's only listed release is an FPS due for release in Q1, 2011. Now, we know Vatra are..
Konami's announced that they are set to bring an updated version of their Eighties arcade smash Rush'n Attack to the Playstation Network - with Rush'n Attack: Ex Patriot. Ex Patriot's got a 2.5D look to proceedings with a typically Eighties-esque cold war plot taking you through three different environments. The game's in development at Czech studio Vatra Games and is due out this Fall..
