Watch: Chris faces the horror of tank controls in Silent Hill 2

Late to the Party claims Bratt's innocence once again.

With the rather memorable Ocarina of Time episode of Late to the Party, Chris Bratt proved that he's not all that comfortable when it comes to older game control schemes. Being the sadistic sort, I decided to introduce him to Silent Hill 2, which, long story short, he didn't get on with. Honestly, I've never seen him so mad.

Dead and live: Silent Hill's strange afterlife

Yamaoka's concerts showed that the fanbase is alive and kicking, even if the series isn't.

I don't know how we got here. A sense of expectation as thick as fog hangs in the air of this hot, dark room. Not for the first time, I wonder how this is happening. How it is I am here, shoulder to shoulder, with my people, waiting, watching a cyclical stream of digital faces - faces I feel I know better than my own - flickering across the screen.

Silent Hill composer Akira Yamaoka to tour UK

He'll be performing live in five cities for Halloween

Konami UK has announced that Akira Yamaoka will undertake a five date tour of the UK in October and November, performing music from the Silent Hill series with a live band.

This week we learned that Hideo Kojima and Guillermo Del Toro are collaborating on a new game in the Silent Hill series. Despite both men having a reputation for attaching themselves to projects that either take years to materialise, if they happen at all, I'm going to go out on a limb and say that this could be the best thing to happen to Silent Hill in over a decade. Why? Because both Kojima and Del Toro are into weird stuff.

"If you want to hate it, that's fine."

Troy Baker - the new voice of James Sunderland in Silent Hill 2 HD - has defended the quality of the voice acting in the game, and blamed original voice actor Guy Cihi for forcing Konami to record new voices.
