I have always been an artist leaning toward the dark side. I think because of my depression, so that was easy to tap. But I also have a hopeful love of humanity and a deep philosophical mind. I just read the script for each project and put myself in the story, then write lyrics as if I was there.
I think, like most people, Silent Hill two had a pretty tremendous impact on me when that came out. I think that was one of the first (and few) times I really sat through and played a game from beginning to end without really taking a break (except for the stuff nature designed us to do)… I think it’s commonplace for people to say 2, and anyone can see why, but I think I actually like 3 more when I think about it. I also really like what they did with Shattered Memories. I fucking love the ending to that game. Such a punch to the guts.

Silent Nerd unboxing the Lakeside Amusment Park version of Gecco’s Robbie statue from Silent Hill 3!
Silent Hill. Uh, there’s a problem. I’m easily scared of many things. A guy that is such a chicken and is so easily scared, I’m very confident that something horrifying would come out from that… But on the other hand I would have to prepare myself to have nightmares every single day. Hopefully sometime in the future I’m able to work on this, but I would really need to prepare to have daily nightmares… Honestly, I’m kind of a scaredy-cat when it comes to horror movies, so I’m not confident I can do it. At the same time, there’s a certain type of horror that only people who are scared of can create, so maybe it’s something I can do… That said, I think Silent Hill has a certain atmosphere. I think it has to continue, and I’d love to help it continue, and if I can help by supervising or lending the technology of the Fox Engine, then I’d love to participate in that respect…

Silent Hill: Otherworld coming in 2015 to all platforms?
This is a leaked image discovered by Gamereactor and has no backing information or a reliable source nor has it been confirmed by Konami, but with Tomohiro Uesugi recent promotion to president and his statement about focusing on Konami’s biggest franchises when he said “We will focus on our talent and iconic brands as we continue to provide innovative products for even deeper and more enjoyable experiences to our customers.” I can only wonder if this leak might have some validation. However, with the exact release date in the photo and already has a subtitle ( which seems a bit too cliche and obvious) before the release of a teaser or more information, leaves me skeptical. Either way maybe this is Konami’s Marketing team thinking about “something” Silent Hill maybe gearing towards E3… What do you guys think of this leak? Have you excited if its legit? Who will be at the helm? Akira Yamaoka? Hideo Kojima? Masahiro Ito? Keiichiro Toyama? An under paid novice director/producer?

Silent Hill: Downpour Comic Update
Could Tristan T-Rex Jones be back in as illustrator for this mysterious Silent Hill: Downpour comic? Seems he has been drawing some Silent Hill Downpour concepts again "Here’s something I will, both fortunately and unfortunately, be drawing a lot of sometime very soon…" -Tristan Jones
First I would find people that wanted to make it and I would be certain that they were not copying from what has been done. A new Silent Hill would require some truly sick, dark people behind it. It is time to throw out the Silent Hill mold and try to ask ourselves again what it means to be scared. It requires a lot of inward looking. It isn’t just about making slimy, squirmy things on screen. Fear is inside us and we have to look at it closely before we can make other people feel it.
