Welcome back to Silent Hill

It’s been real quiet on the Silent Hill front as of late. Well this september gamers will get to take the trip back to that freaky as all hell town in the upcoming game Silent Hill: Homecoming, dropping on the x360 and ps3. In this version players will take the role of a 22 year old war veteran named Alex Shepherd returning home to find his lost brother. As you can see from some of the pics, you can expect the same foggy, creepy, dirty ,rusty settings and themes. Now although it looks cool im starting to wonder if it’s falling in the “samey syndrome”. This is technically the 6th game in the series (counting the psp version) and it all of it looks just like the last version played. And I know it takes place in the same town but how many times can one explore Silent Hill? They say this version is a reboot of the franchise but it seems more like another sequel, you wanna see a reboot of a series i suggest playing Resident evil 0,1-3 and then play 4…that’s a reboot folks! I’ll def’ play this version and will hopefully be surprised at what’s instore, but from what i’ve seen so far it looks like another creepy regular trip to good ol’ Silent hill. Below you can peep some new videos from gamesradar.com
Unit out…

    Oh my. The graphics look glorious. I don’t agree that the story should be in a different setting. Silent Hill is a place, a location. So it’s still cool to have different people experience the area and see what happens.

    Also he looks a bit more nimble than most of the leads in the old games.

    Silent hill is a place and setting true, but it’s like they all go through the same stuff, no matter what character is visiting the town.I can see where your coming from as you haven’t played every silent hill game out, but this is the 6th game and having played all of them they tend to be on the familiar side. Same hospital areas, same dark twisted world with rust and wheelchairs. All im saying is it’ll be nice to change it up abit. You remember in the end of the movie how the little girl left silent hill but the evil was still with her. They should try something like that. And on a side note as far as stories go, silent hill 3 had the most memorable imo. with the main character vomiting up a fetues then that lady eating it and turning into a demon..some nasty shit!
