No remake, no remaster – what’s made Metal Gear Rising Revengeance stay so popular for so long?

To celebrate Metal Gear Rising Revengance’s 10-year anniversary, composer Jamie Christopherson and Senator Armstrong actor Alastair Duncan reflect on the title’s legacy. It’s wild to think that 10 years ago today, I got Metal Gear Rising Revengeance through the door. I sat down at my Xbox 360 and played through the entire game that day. I couldn’t put it down. I got stuck at the final boss – because I was a cocky guy who picked hard for my first playthrough – but defeated him the next morning. At this point in my life I was a fresh fan of…

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…

Fans have uncovered a secret message in Silent Hill: Townfall’s announcement trailer

Silent Hill: Townfall’s announcement was decidedly cryptic, but fans have since found various secrets hiding in the trailer. Announced during Konami’s Silent Hill Transmission broadcast last week, Silent Hill: Townfall is being developed by No Code, the studio behind the spooky Observation. The trailer was light on details, with a speech about crime and judgement playing over footage from a Pocket Television, but some eagle-eyed – or perhaps eared – fans have uncovered messages hidden in the audio that might give us a hint of what Townfall is all about.

Oscar Isaac says that he’s “hopeful” about the Metal Gear Solid movie, but has no big updates to offer

If you click on a link and make a purchase we may receive a small commission. Read our editorial policy. A movie to surpass Metal Gear, eventually, maybe. Oscar Isaac was recently asked about the Metal Gear Solid movie, which he’s apparently still “hopeful” will still happen. A film adaptation of Metal Gear Solid has been in the works for coming up to a decade now, and Oscar Isaac joined the project back in 2020 as Solid Snake himself. Since then, we haven’t heard too much, but in a recent interview with Comic Book, the actor touched on the project,…

Konami reveals that Silent Hill is making a comeback, more information coming on Wednesday

The past few years have been torture for any Silent Hill fan. We’ve experienced rumour after rumour, leak after leak, and still haven’t heard so much as a whisper from Konami. It had got to the point where many fans desperately hoped for a new instalment in the pivotal horror series, but many had accepted it might never happen. Instead, we’ve been left trying – and struggling – to replay some of the best horror games of all time since. It’s been an entire decade since the last full Silent Hill game, Silent Hill: Shattered Memories, and seven years since…

Silent Hill: The Short Message has been rated in Korea

First spotted by Gematsu, it appears that a Silent Hill title — Silent Hill: The Short Message — has been rated in Korea. This particular game has not yet been announced by Konami, nor are any platforms for the title specified. Just in case you needed reminding of classic Silent Hill, here’s the 1998 E3 trailer. This rating has appeared rather unexpectedly, given that many of the most recent leaks were supposedly related to a remake of Silent Hill 2 or a playable teaser for some sort of mainline instalment.
