I remember the day, back in the wild times of the mid ’90s, when we were still amazed by Mario Kart 64’s whole eight character roster (Wario, playable? Wow!). Back then I’d rush home from the store as fast as the city bus would get me there (not very) – and pop my brand new shiny cartridge into the ’64. Boom! New game, product complete, fired up in all its early 64bit 3D glory. Two years later, that game would be just as was then – awesome. No patches required.
If you’ve been looking forward to playing the newest Silent Hill title, you are going to have to keep waiting indefinitely. Production on Silent Hills has been cancelled due to director Hideo Kojima’s split with Konami.
2015 is shaping up to be a great year for fans of horror. The long-announced remake of Stephen King’s IT starts filming this June. Demos for next year’s Silent Hills instalment starring the Walking Dead’s Norman Reedus has been scaring stains into reviewers’ pants. Bloodborne has been challenging and startling players since March.
Until Dawn, first announced for the PS3 before vanishing, is a contender for the survival horror category. With an expansive script encouraging you to make different choices each time, this game is bound to provide hundreds of hours of entertainment.
