Layers Of Fear is shaping up to be a worthy final act for the series

Layers Of Fear — recently quietly renamed from its working title Layers Of Fears — is a game that requires a bit of explanation. It shares its title with the 2016 game of the same name, and is being overseen by original developers Bloober Team. But it’s neither a remake nor a reboot; although, in some ways, it’s both of those things. It’s more a “reimagining” of the whole Layers Of Fear series to date, as well as its apparent swansong. It incorporates ground-up remakes of the two-and-a-half existing games in the series in Unreal Engine 5, alongside a new…

Bloober Team says Silent Hill 2 fans don’t need to worry about it “missing the point”

Fans are worried about the remake, but Bloober wants to reassure them they don’t need to be. Fans unsurprisingly have some concerns over Bloober Team’s upcoming Silent Hill 2 remake, but the developer is aiming to stay “close to the original.” Last October, Konami finally announced the long-rumoured Silent Hill 2 remake, confirming suspicions and leaks that Bloober would be developing it. The reveal wasn’t a big surprise because of those rumours and leaks, but fans of the series have expressed concern considering the generally average reception that Bloober’s games have received. In a recent interview with DreadXP, Anna Jasińska,…

Whether it’s the original or the remake, I can’t unsee Silent Hill 2’s wonky parking

The biggest horror in Silent Hill 2 might just be committed in car parks. This article contains spoilers for Silent Hill 2, including some of the game’s endings. In my restless dreams, I see that stupid, selfish parking hog, James Sunderland. That’s not quite how Silent Hill 2 goes, but I can’t stop thinking about protagonist James’s terrible, terrible parking. As with a lot of things, this disturbing revelation began with Twitter. I couldn’t tell you how many times I’ve played Konami and Team Silent’s famous survival horror, but I’d guess it was well into double figures. During all that…

Silent Hill doesn’t need a remake; it just needs to be left alone

In an age where developers and publishers can’t help but tread old ground, we should never set foot back in Silent Hill. As recent leaks have shown us, it’s looking fairly likely that Konami is looking to bring us back to the world of Silent Hill. As it currently stands, it sounds like we’re getting a remake of Silent Hill 2 – generally regarded as the best one – and something new from Annapurna, maybe somewhere else. Remake, new game, it doesn’t matter. Because I honestly believe the series should just be left for dead. Remember what could have been?…

Rumours grow as details of a Silent Hill 2 remake emerge following recent leak

A remake, a new mainline game, and “side ‘stories’” are all part of this week’s rumours. The rumour mill doesn’t want to stop at the moment, as a new rumour has come out claiming that The Medium developer Bloober Team is working on a Silent Hill 2 remake. Earlier this week, some images leaked of a supposed Silent Hill reboot were taken down via DMCA by Konami. While it can’t be confirmed if these images are real or not, the take downs certainly are suspicious. And now YouTuber NateTheHate has claimed that a remake of Silent Hill 2 is in…

Leaked Silent Hill images suggest a new game with a British setting

Images of what appear to be a new entry in Konami’s psychological horror series Silent Hill were posted briefly online over the weekend, before they were struck down by a copyright claim a few hours later. AestheticGamer, née Dusk Golem, posted the images to Twitter, claiming they were a “Silent Hill leak”, and that they’d received “more than enough proof to believe” their source wasn’t telling porkies.

Another PlayStation ‘Console Exclusive’ Comes To Xbox

At this point, it’s fair to assume that any proclamations of “console exclusivity” should be taken with an entire deer lick of salt. The PlayStation 5 launch title Bugsnax comes out on Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S on April 28, as part of the Game Pass library, developer Young Horses announced. It’s also getting a release on Nintendo Switch. Oh, and it’s getting a free expansion. Bugsnax, an adventure game about exploring an island of anthropomorphic snacks, first made waves at E3 2020 due to that contagiously catchy tune from Kero Kero Bonito in its trailer. Folks may have…

Former Xbox exclusive The Medium is coming to PS5 in September

The Medium, the apparently timed Xbox console exclusive from Bloober Team that launched earlier this year, is coming to PS5 on September 3, 2021.This isn’t a complete surprise, though: the Entertainment Software Rating Board listed The Medium on PS5 back at the start of the month. Bloober Team’s third-person psychological horror title was first announced for PC, Xbox Series X/S, and was a day-one release through Xbox Game Pass. At no point had it previously been mentioned that it would end up on PS5.The PS5 version of The Medium will feature “full DualSense controller support,” according to a press release, so there’s some specific…
