Cool, I'm curious about this

Posted by ShawnDC

I've been looking forward to the Downpour QL since I saw some footage of it last week.

SIlent Hill 2 is still better. Deal.

Posted by xxizzypop

I'm pretty stoked that this finally came up, I've wanted to see what's up with this game for ever. Or, y'know. Two weeks.

Also, @MediumDave: God damn. The quickness son.

wtf at the echo in the studio? well not echo but a weird buzz/sound everytime patrick or ryan talk

Posted by Brewmaster_Andy

Holy shit that screenshot!

Posted by MediumDave

@xxizzypop: Pure, unadulterated luck.

im the EXACT same as Ryan with loving horror movies, hating horror games, and i have no idea why. Horror games just stress me out in a way no movie does

SUBTITLES

SUBTITLES please! I kinda wanted to know what they were saying in the game to see how the situation was working out. especially if its just showing a cutscene/non-playable moment.

I have the same problem. I don't find horror movies scary at all, but I can barely play Bioshock, not to mention something like Dead Space.

I think it's the interactivity, I get so immersed in the world and being the character I get freaked out by the slightest jump scares. Totally different than movies.

Been following a Let's Play of this. It doesn't seem bad at all, really. Sure, combat sucks and it has some performance issues, but it's been enjoyable to watch for sure.

That sounds like something I would call bad.

I liked Homecoming.

I still have no idea why people give Silent Hill 4 so much shit. Okay, I admit it had quite a bit of bad design choices but goddamnit if it didn't have the most unique and awesome story in the series.

For Downpour, I'm definitely checking it out.

Weird knowledge on the SH-mythos in this QL. 2 has no connection to 1 and 3.

Posted by leem101

i always thought the combat was meant to be crap in these games so that you are more worried and panicking as some monster thing attacks you

Posted by AlexanderSheen

Ryan: "Alright, let's get on the bus!... Or the... roller coaster or whatever this is."

...

Yeah, those two are hard to distinguish, I guess.

Man, Fuck Patrick, Silent Hill is awesome even when it's sub-par.

GTA4 has very mediocre combat. Would you call that a bad game? You wouldn't, as combat isn't the focus of either game.

You and me both, man. Even ones that aren't that scary, like Shadows of the Damned, can get me going "...but... that's creepy..."

edit: Wow, Ryan has never even SEEN the dog ending from 2? It's MAGICAL.

Posted by Trnck

What's wrong with the screenshot? I really don't get it.

Posted by falling_fast

they didn't play enough of it to come to any conclusion, so far as I can tell.

That game looks cool. They seem to have made their judgement about it before giving it a chance.

Posted by buckybit

I still prefer Cypress Hill to Silent Hill:

yo!
Posted by Antihippy

Siren blood curse has pretty shit combat too, though the stealth was pretty decent.

Dunno what to feel of this new silent hill.

What? Patrick said he plays through every Silent Hill game, which is much more than most of these games rightfully deserve. How does that warrant a "Fuck Patrick?"

Posted by sawtooth

haven't silent hill monsters always become incapacitated? Then you need to finish them off while they're down to get your radio to shut up.

Posted by Grillbar

if you like silent hill you have to buy this. this is really awsome. the combat is alittle boring, it has some framerate issues and you sometimes get stuck on the environment, not so you cant move but just enough that you cant walk along a wall by pushing against it with out getting stuck some times.

the game is about 8-14 hours depending on doing sidequest or not

the very best thing about this game is if yo choose easy/normal/hard puzzle they are handled differently, the answer is different and items are placed in diffecent places.

the story is awsome. but granted its not the best silent hill game

and the best part of the hole game is the "otherworld"

basicly i liked it so much that i played it though 4 times. the 4th time i completed it in about 2 hours and 15min

buy it

Edited by MattClassic

I liked Silent Hill 4.

Edited by Sammo21

This is the most generic, boring, and dumb Silent Hill yet. This game is even worse than Homecoming. I am ashamed I own this game.

Also, who fights every single monster they come across in Silent Hill?

Posted by CaLe

Some people are too easily pleased..

Edited by CornBREDX

They were incredibly harsh with this one. I mean, ya it's not as good as the originals (or the benchmark Silent Hill 2) but Downpour is still better then other iterations of Silent Hill that didn't seem to get it at all.

This game isnt that bad. It's a shame they didn't show much of it, but they showed enough to see a small part of it. There's "side quests" in this too- I'm still not sure what to say about those other then I've not finished any of them yet.

Posted by Camosid

This totally did seem kind of like they had already made a judgement on this game before playing much of it, but I also haven't played it so I dunno. Also you guys should check out Lone Survivor, it's kinda like a Sidescrolling silent hill game? It's pretty awesome. http://www.lonesurvivor.co.uk/ The smaller games on PC seem to have taken up most of the horror stuff. I will still be getting this because it didn't seem as bad as they were making it out to be.

Edited by falling_fast

Like so far as I can tell their thought process on this game is:

"This game has you roaming around an empty city shrouded by fog with no clear objective! and the combat is real bad"

(like in Silent Hill 2 which they acknowledge is a classic)

"man this game sucks."

I'm not saying that this game looks great. I thought that roller coaster ride type thing looked really silly and out of place, for instance. I'm just saying that they'd barely started the game, so saying "DON'T BUY THIS GAME" seems premature on their part.

This doesn't seem great and I'm a huge SH fan. Also bummer to hear about the problems with SH HD for PS3, how do you mess up a HD collection?

Posted by hollitz

Poor combat kind of makes survival horror games better. Love Dead Space, but I never feel threatened in those games because the combat is good.

Yeah, got a chuckle out of that one too. "Rollercoaster....horse drawn carriage? Not quite sure..."

Also, Patrick continues tooling around. "Bros, I LOVE Silent Hill, but this game is a crime against humanity. So says my 1 hour of total playtime with it".

Posted by zombie2011

Wow i haven't even heard of most the games they are doing QL's of this week.

'Trick says he finished the game in the QL, for those of you saying it's being judged by an hour of playtime.

"the bus falls over .... and you're in SIlent Hill"

can this be the new "arrow to the knee", please? :D

can you pinpoint the time when he said that, for reference? because I don't remember that.

OK I don't complain that much but Patrick talks way too much thank god Ryan asked to turn on the subtitles

Posted by MeatSim

I just want a unlimited supply of glass bottles to throw at monsters.

Posted by Gizmo

I'm sorry, but it seems like Patrick and Ryan went into this Quick Look with the intention of completely shitting on it. The game looks good, in my opinion.

Edited by weegieanawrench

I'm the opposite of Ryan, horror movies scare the shit out of me and I tend to have nightmares for a while. But with horror video games it's different because... I know it's just a game?

This face still haunts me from time to time.

Posted by StrikeALight

The series should have ended with SH3.

Posted by PatPandaHat

I'm getting some weird Bright Falls/Night Springs vibes off this Silent Hill.
