Just don't let the SP get butchered because of it and I don't care. Might be fun, but the SP is what I'm there for.

Silent Hill Homecoming

I don't particularly want the Silent Hill franchise to be re-invented, so this is a purchase for me.

It'll be nice to get back to exploration rather than fending off irritating ghosts or escorting NPCs past invincible enemies.

I didn't expect any of RE4 to be featured in this, but it is a shame that they didn't include a Code Veronica section.

Silent Hill Origins

I don't think I'll ever agree with the feel being consistent. In certain stages, I will concede that the look was faithful.

The Room touches a raw nerve because the series has fallen in quality since Silent Hill 2. After the third game, which in my opinion was too combat-centric, I had high hopes for the next offering; sadly, those hopes were dashed.

edit: I can't seem to pluralise my nouns today.

Silent Hill 4 wasn't tied in heavily into the series mythology at all. They took a character mentioned in a memo in Silent Hill 2 and adapted the game's nemesis around it. Konami simply lost faith that the "Room 302" brand would sell and tacked on the Silent Hill name.

Replenishing health? Virtually invincible ghost enemies? The entire second half of the game being a spirit-crushing escort quest? These elements, thankfully, never featured in its three predecessors.

If this is half the game that Silent Hill 2 is, then I'll be glad when I finally get around to playing it.

edit: changed to 512 to 302 ;)

I felt that this was a decent card RPG in its own right and a fine companion to the original.

Sony fixes RGB bug in PS3

@Darren

I have the same concerns around room size/panel size and agree with your outlook.
I had originally earmarked the latest 100hz Panasonic 32", but this Sony just edges it because of the 24p support. It's a shame that it doesn't include the Sony flavour of Deep Colour as that's an aspect of the HDMI 1.3 specification that the PS3 is in a position to (supposedly) support. It seems that's limited to the larger "Full-HD" range.

I don't like the way 1080p is banded about all the time now. They should include a caveat when the signal is supported but not pixel for pixel.

That TV does look nice, but it's still, natively, a 720p set; it can't possibly display 1080p input properly due to lack of pixels.

Manafacturers should be producing 40-70" 1920x1080 sets with HDMI 1.3 (or at least the important facets) and 100hz scanning.

Resident Evil 4

It certainly looks interesting, however, it's shaping up as a re-invention rather than evolution.

This could, and probably does, mean that all the loose ends and established characters will be discarded in favour of the new direction.

A brave move on Capcom's behalf, but I can't be only one to lament the loss of Umbrella, Wesker et al.
