Scans of the Silent Hill 2006 Official Silent Hill Tourism Map Prop Added!

Posted By: Whitney   September 7th, 2014 | 3:31 pm

Shortly after the 2006 Silent Hill film was released Premiere Props auctioned off a load of “screen used” props from the movie. Included in their large sale were several “Official Silent Hill Tourism Maps” that featured a map of Silent Hill on one side and West Virginia map on the other listing fun activities to do in Silent Hill during the 70′s.

For years I wanted to take a peek at the interior of the brochure as the pictures Premiere Props provided were too small to really make out much the details. Luckily, I was able to obtain a map prop from a follow collector for my own collection last week and thought it would be cool to scan it and share the contents online!

You can check out the contents of the map and see some of my own impression over in the

Figma – Silent Hill 2: Red Pyramid Thing Up for Pre-Order at Amiami

Posted By: Whitney   August 28th, 2014 | 10:21 am

The Figma Red Pyramid Thing figure is up for pre-order over on Ami Ami for 3,800 ¥ and a tentative release date of late April 2015.

Silent Hill’s executioner, finally joining the figma series!
From the highly acclaimed horror game ‘SILENT HILL 2′ comes a figma of the famous ‘Red Pyramid Thing’ also known as ‘Pyramid Head’ – easily the most popular monster in the series!

-Using the smooth yet posable joints of figma, you can act out a variety of different scenes.
-A flexible plastic is used for important areas, allowing proportions to be kept without compromising posability.
-The Pyramid Head’s symbolic ‘Great Knife’ and ‘Spear’ are both included along with a number of hand parts.
-Alternate neck parts are also included to recreate different scenes from the game.
-An articulated figma stand is included, allowing various poses to be taken.

Amiami ships worldwide and you don’t have to put any money down until the product is actually released. I pre-ordered my Gecco Robbie the Rabbit Statue from these guys a few months ago and the whole transaction went very smoothly.

RPT is looking pretty cool, I can’t wait to add him to my own collection :) Anyone else planning getting this little guy?

Recording Voices in the Static #22- PT and Silent Hills this Weekend! Summit your questions!

Posted By: Whitney   August 28th, 2014 | 9:48 am

Going to record a new episode this weekend with my friends and fellow Silent Hill fanatics CJ, Kyle and Bob to discuss PT and our hopes and concerns for the recently announced Silent Hills. Have a question? Post below and we will answer it during the podcast!



Stuck on the final puzzle in PT? The folks at The Grate Debate have it all figured out!

Posted By: Whitney   August 21st, 2014 | 10:59 pm

Here I was thinking that the solution to the last puzzle in PT was random and the folks at The Grate Debate figured it out. Amazing!

To see the solution check out the video below (I won’t spoil the reveal in a measly news post!)

Wow! Way to go Bob! :) A lot of research went into cracking a code in a mere playable teaser… I gotta say if we can expect this amount of dedication tackling other game mysteries moving forward I’m pumped to see how TGD handles their analysis on the rest of the Silent Hill series!

Stay up to date and follow the Grate Debate on twitter and on facebook.



So about the name Silent Hills…

Posted By: Whitney   August 18th, 2014 | 7:36 pm

Is it just me who is desperately hoping that “Silent Hills” is just a working title? It’s just so…odd sounding and I’m sorry Kojima but it doesn’t bring “plural scariness” to mind either, quite the opposite in fact… Every time I say it, this dumb CD cover art I came across a few years ago on Yahoo! Japan Auctions looking for items for my collection comes to mind. So I made a thing… Silent Hillz yo!



Silent Hills – Won’t be out until 2016 and could have First Person PoV

Posted By: Whitney   August 16th, 2014 | 11:06 am

Ooo so What if Gaming got a few tidbits about the new Silent Hill game from Kojima during a conversation at Gamescom 2014:

    – Looks like we won’t see the new Silent Hill until 2016 which seems so far, FAR away but hey it will give me time to save up for a next gen console


    – Kojima is deciding whether to make the game entirely first or keep it fixed third person with select areas in FPV. I really hope it’s the later given that playing in FPV makes me ill

    Well… if they do decide to go in FPV the entire game I’ll have to use these next two years figure out a way to get more comfortable playing FPV. There’s no way I would let a little thing like simulation sickness get in the way of experiencing a new Silent Hill game!

    Reading comprehension I haz it…

    “Hideo Kojima: Not sure yet. Development is cycling between either allowing players to choose to play the whole game in first person or third person, or keeping it fixed third person and having some areas be first person only. Either way we want to do something with first person. The game will not be out more than likely until 2016, lots of time left.”

    Whelp that’s a relief we will have a choice or limited FPV. Thanks Ethan! I’m a dork.

    - The new game is most likely open world given that that’s what the Fox Engine is meant for. Kojima couldn’t go into more details as this time.

So what do you guys think? Are you more excited to play an entirely FPV Silent Hill or would you prefer a fixed third person view for the majority of the game like the previous titles?
