New soul withering shots of Silent Hill V


After spotting some brand new Silent Hill V screenshots on the web today, we quickly set about acquiring them ourselves. After instating requesting the aid of an intrepid colleague at Joystiq, we thought we had acquired the images in questions. Alas, we were unable to get the lovely, watermark-free versions of the images, but we were pleasantly surprised to learn that the shots we had acquired seem to be brand new. So, as we endeavor to nab the images we originally sought, enjoy our three brand new images in the gallery below.

PLAY magazine scares up new Silent Hill V info


The fine folks over at SilentHill5.net have uncovered new Silent Hill V details by way of PLAY magazine. We have learned that the flashlight and static emitting radio will make a return after they went inexplicably missing in Silent Hill 4. Also, monsters will react to your flashlight (or any light source), particularly the series' trademark nurses -- this becomes especially apparent (and frightening) when you have to use an X-ray viewer to solve a puzzle. Thankfully, Silent Hill V abandons cinematic camera angles in favor of a player-controlled camera, so hopefully you won't get jumped while solving said puzzle. Speaking of puzzles, the game incorporates button matching segments similar to those found in God of War and Shenmue for certain segments -- like loosening the straps on your gurney, for example. Why are you in a gurney? Don't ask. Finally, the game incorporates a new system in which players must tend their wounds. Untended wounds will affect gameplay. In a nice twist, wounds affect enemies too. Somehow, we doubt that fact will be of any comfort as scads of demented nurses use your body for surgical practice.

Turn out the lights: first videos of Silent Hill V

Survival horror fans rejoice, for the first footage of Silent Hill V has emerged on GameVideos. Don't rejoice too much though, because the three videos available are very short, clocking in at just under thirty seconds each. But you can rejoice a little bit again, because GameVideos has also posted a seven minute video featuring interviews with The Collective, the developers that have taken over the series. Judging by what the folks at 1UP have to say, it looks like the game is in good hands. If you don't believe us, check out the three videos embedded in this post. The first video features the new real time transition between the real world and the dark world. We were skeptics before, but the fluidity of the effect really is a sight to behold. Check out the other two (somewhat less exciting) videos after the break, and hit the "read" link for the much longer video feature.
