Konami will "continue to develop SH series" but SHs canceled

This is gonna sound weird, but I hope there's not a lot of nudity and gore. Let me explain, you can do this in two ways: make it feel like it's part of the story, like it's really supposed to be there, or you can try to be edgy and just throw a lot of tits and gore.

Despite the subject matter of the games and some of the enemies, the Castlevania series wasn't really that hardcore when it comes to nudity and gore. Sure, you had bosses like Legion (or whatever that giant ball of naked people was called), Dracula is the villain etc., but it was never Berserk when it comes to violence.

I just hope they don't overdo it. It's like when I'm watching newer DC animated movies, like something Batman related and when violence happens it feels...off. I can't really explain it. The characters are gonna have a normal conversation then someone is gonna stab a bunch of people with a broken glass. It feels like they try too hard to be edgy.

I really don't think so. I'm not getting that vibe at all from what I looked into. But who knows.

The name on the envelope said ‘Silent Hill.’
My Game's name...
It’s ridiculous, couldn’t possibly be true...
That’s what I keep telling myself...
A dead franchise can’t write a letter.
Silent Hill died because of that damn company five years ago.
So then why am I looking for it?
Our ‘special place’...
What could it mean?
This whole town was our special place.
Does it mean the park on the lake?
We spent the whole day there.
Just the two of us, staring at the water.
Could Silent Hill really be there?
Is it really alive... waiting for me?

Funny and Sad!
Especially this part. > "Silent Hill died because of that damn company five years ago."

^^ It's animated and supposed to be hard R.

Whew~ For a moment there, I thought it was going to be another excuse to make a porn show
based on earlier times. (Ex: Game of Thrones, Vikings, Penny Dreadful etc...)

The last 1 was developed by Arc System Works, and got Great Reviews! How you ask?
Because unlike Origin, Homecoming, Shattered Memories, and Downpour, it was Japanese created!

As usual, I got the game, and still haven't played it yet. {Maybe tonight...}

Another similarity between RE7 and SH2 ...

Having to relinquish all of your inventory to move on.

That was the first thing I thought of when I came to that point.

If anyone doesn't know, When Ethan gets to that door and unlocks it, Lucas (who is watching through security cam) tells Ethan he can't be let through until he empties his entire inventory into an item box next to the door. Past the door is a dark series of rooms that contains a puzzle. It's very similar to how James has to navigate the lower hotel floor without a flashlight or weapons/items.
There was a SIGNATURE here. It's gone now.

Yup.

I do not think it is a stretch at all to compare the two, as far as where the inspiration for a lot of what happens in RE7 coming from SH2. And SH4 for that matter.

Didn't Code Veronica have a part where you have to dump all metal objects into this one box to proceed further?

It sure did.

I'm sure other games have done this as well.
