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.

P.T. is gone, no more. Its metabolic processes are now history.

At Tokyo Game Show today Konami released a concept video for horror game Silent Hills - and it's pretty disturbing.
In the video, below, we're thrust into a corridor that soon goes very wrong.
There are maggots. Lots of maggots. Imagine playing this game with virtual reality headset Project Morpheus!
Sega is cutting cheques for consumers who felt Aliens: Colonial Marines was wildly different to the marketing videos used to promote it, but while that particular battle is over, the war of words between the publisher and Gearbox Software, which developed the game, certainly isn't. This week brings fresh squabbling to light. The respective parties presumably wish they could just dust off and nuke the whole sorry episode from orbit.
Ever wonder what Kojima Production's first-person horror teaser P.T. would look like if it were narrated by that charming omniscient voice from The Stanley Parable? Well wonder no further as YouTuber it's a mirage has made a video of just that.
Kojima Productions' Silent Hills teaser, P.T. is weird. Properly weird. That's in keeping with series tradition, according to Silent Hill aficionado Dan Whitehead. But there's another peculiar tradition P.T. keeps alive: an obscure reference to aliens.
If you've played P.T. - the teaser for Konami's forthcoming Silent Hills, a project being produced by both Hideo Kojima and Guillermo del Toro - is pretty terrifying, as those of you who have played it will no doubt attest.

There's also the issue of the delay to Evolution's racing game DriveClub. It was once due out alongside the PS4 in November 2013. Now, it'll launch almost a year later, going up against the likes of Forza Horizon 2, Project Cars and The Crew.
"What's at stake?" someone once asked me when I explained my social anxiety about inadvertently saying the wrong thing to a stranger at a party.
