I’m currently revisiting a few of the previous Silent Hill titles, so it’s with that frame of mind that I found myself viewing the latest footage and previews of the next in the series.
So Nintendo had absolutely nothing for horror gamers in their press conference at E3 yesterday. Don’t worry, though; there are still some quality horror titles heading to the Nintendo Wii.
Well Sony and Nintendo didn?t really have much for us horror fans at their conferences, which is a shame since both have high profile horror titles heading to their systems, but that doesn?t mean that we don?t still have a stack of stuff to update you on.
Could it be? A trailer for a video game that was so extreme, it was actually banned? That’s what EA Games is telling us about the “Lullaby Trailer” for the upcoming survival horror game Dead Space.
With E3 going down right now, I can imagine we’re going to be seeing more announcements like this in the coming days. Variety caught wind this morning that Capcom and Warner Bros. are teaming up to bring Lost Planet to the big screen, with Watchmen screenwriter David Hayter on board to pen the script.
First things first: March 13th, 2009. Yes, that’s a Friday so you’ll want to plan not to spend that evening watching counselors at Camp Crystal Lake being slaughtered. Instead you’ll want to keep that evening, nay the whole weekend, free for the follow-up to the best reviewed horror game to date.
It’s E3 week, which means tons of gaming news. I’ll be back later today and tomorrow with any horror centric news from the big three’s press conferences. Microsoft is up first today with its press conference, and then tomorrow Nintendo and Sony unveil their future plans.
We love James Wan around these parts. Not only has he made a few kickass horror films, but he’s also a great guy. EA Games seem to be on a mission to show us horror fans that despite having rarely entered our genre, this October’s Dead Space comes from a team of people that really know their stuff when it comes to horror.
