|My reaction when Silent Hill HD was first announced.|
When I heard they were doing an HD collection I got really excited. Silent Hill on PS360? Awesome! Shut up and take my money! That was until details started coming out. First off, this "collection" contains Silent Hill 2 & 3. Two games out of a 7, soon to be 9 game series. And that's not counting the Japan only cell phone games. How is that a collection? Second, they came out and said that they will be rerecording the voice acting with all new voice actors. No. You lost my purchase right there, Konami. I adore the voice acting in both games and to change it would be to redraw the Mona Lisa's smile. It's the same reason I didn't want to play Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes, a remake of the first MGS(another Konami release coincidentally). Though in that game's case they had the same voice actors re-record their lines. Kind of a waste of time I'd say. Okay, so after months of fan backlash they came out and said the original voice acting will be an option. For Silent Hill 2 only.
I wanted to keep this blog PG13, meaning no F-bombs, but you can only bait and switch me so many times, so I only have on thing to say about this:
FUCK YOU KONAMI
