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

Post by Borg on Thu Mar 09, 2017 12:41 pm

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...)
I lost my head again, would you cry for me?

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.

Cool. But do you really believe Konami is developing anything as far as a console game is concerned when it comes to Silent Hill?

Well, I guess they are developing Metal Gear Survive, so its possible.


They are using preexisting assets for that Metal Gear. There are no next gen assets for Silent Hill.

You'd be surprised what one can do with old models. Downpour is a great example. Unreal Engine content can be transferred between versions of the engine and as shown by fan developers on youtube they can be ripped and reused.

Konami could reuse Downpour assets for a next gen game if they really wanted to.

After what Kojima did with PT. Last gen assets probably won't cut it anymore.

Top Ten Konami fails. 7,4 and number 1 in a way is relevant to this forum.
But fuck the video makers for talking shit about Downpour!
No results found for oohfakanorus.

E3 is just a few short months away, people.

I personally can't wait to see all the Konami trailers that don't exist for games that will never come.

(Capcom is finally on the right track with RE though so I hope there's tons of RE news).

Konami will probably see the success of RE7 and use the inspiration to turn Silent Hill into an MMO racing adventure game sponsored by Burger King that's $30 a month to play.
