Silent Hill Origins rises from the dead

Silent Hill: Origins had seemingly disappeared from the public eye, with many (including ourselves) fearing its cancellation. The game showed early promise, with impressive graphics and Resident Evil 4-style gameplay. However, it wasn't long until there were reports of troubled development: Climax, the game's developer, laid off numerous employees. Then, it was conspicuously absent from Konami's Gamers Day.

Well, looks our fears were unwarranted. Game Informer has a new exclusive preview up: "The kicker was that even though the game was on a much smaller screen, our hands sweated and heart pounded as if we were playing a full-on entry in the series. If you're sensitive to scary content you'll probably not be playing this with the lights out and headphones on like the game recommends. With that said, it looks like Climax is on the right track with Origins."

We're incredibly relieved that the game has taken a turn for the better. Check out Game Informer for more screenshots and videos.

read the review. but I couldn't find the video. hmmm..

still, survival horror genre. I don't believe it was ever done on PSP before, I hope it'd be as good as GI claims to be. I would definitely check it out.

*Crisis Core
*God of War
*Devil May Cry
and now *Origins

man, some pretty good games for the future. let's bring those games out soon, Sony stated that they will focus more on PSP now, so MAKE IT HAPPEN!

I'd *never* say I told you so, but...I so totally did. :p

"Climax is using dynamic lighting and shadows cast from the flashlight will be reflected on the environment. The visuals are fantastic albeit disturbing with the added aural qualities making Silent Hill Origins have a definite aura of menace surrounding every turn."

LOVE it. I honestly wasn't as excited about this year's lineup of PSP games as last year... Until now. This one game makes me VERY happy to have a PSP for 2007.

What was the purpose of posting that link? To show where the unintelligent fanboys who have their 'penis measuring' DS vw. PSP battles here come from - which is the single most uniformly unintelligent and uninformed place for debate?

@9: The people who don't think the PSP is a 'good system' by now are biased fanboys. Forget them.

TXA: I dunno, I think Sega of America forum is the worst group of uninformed PSP haters I've ever seen in one place.
