“He’s looking for the you that isn’t you.” – Ernest Baldwin, Silent Hill 2: Born From a Wish.
I forgot how often this concept of identity comes up in Silent Hill lore, even on the “smaller scale” personal stories, as seen in SH2. In the P.T. story (little story though there is), one of the phrases that comes up during one of the loops/resets is (and I’m paraphrasing here): “The only me is me. Are you sure the only you is you?”
It makes me so upset to say it. It really does. Just like film director Guillermo del Toro said over the weekend, “It’s not gonna happen and that breaks my greasy heart.”
Konami have officially announced that we can say bye-bye to seeing the PS4-exclusive horror game Silent Hills.
Originally revealed through P.T., a playable teaser (which if you haven’t downloaded, go DO IT RIGHT NOW. You have until Wednesday April 29th before they pull the plug on it.), Silent Hills is the highly anticipated collaboration between Metal Gear designer Hideo Kojima and one of my most favorite film directors Guillermo del Toro, also featuring the likeness of Norman Reedus.
The recent rumors about rocky relationships between Konami and Kojima had fans speculating that the game wouldn’t happen, and it turns out they were right. Konami has officially stated:
“Konami is committed to new Silent Hill titles, however the embryonic ‘Silent Hills’ project developed with Guillermo del Toro and featuring the likeness of Norman Reedus will not be continued. In terms of Kojima and Del Toro being involved, discussions on future Silent Hill projects are currently underway, and please stay tuned for further announcements.”
What a damn SHAME! Hopefully they can pull something off soon, because that demo was something great. That sink fetus! AHHH! Seriously though, that thing creeps me out.
