    Hey everyone! It's been awhile!

    Let's get straight to the point, shall we?












    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.” 

    Another interesting part is, I've found another leak from the same source. In this case, Dishonored 2: Darkness of Tyvia.

    Maria Shepherd

    A lot of Silent Hill fans think that Lisa Garland is a weak and useless character , but in my opinion Lisa has a very important role in every game/comic/movie she appears in .



    In every game , Lisa plays the role of the nurse in Alchemilla Hospital who takes care of Alessa, but none of us know how did she come to Silent Hill and why did she come to Silent Hill ? Why is she a nurse and not something else ?

    Little is know about Lisa's Life before arriving to the town , but I know that she worked as a nurse because her family has a very know history of nurses and doctors in Silent Hill . 

    Lisa was someone who is abused; but also someone who enables the abuse of another . Guilty , but innocent. 

    No one is fully guilty , but no one is fully innocent…

    (Originally posted to my Silent Hill site, The 4th Floor .)

    The symbolic importance of both Mary and Maria are entirely wrapped in one another: they are mirror images, reflections, and understanding one necessitates understanding the other.  They come with a dual context that makes exploring their symbolism jointly very important.

    It also requires, to some extent, discussing James, in relation to these two women; and to a greater extent, aspects of the Bible and Christianity, which were drawn upon for this game.  Symbols and themes from the Christian Bible are strewn throughout Silent Hill 2, and in many ways its primary female characters are easily relatable to some of Christianity’s most important women.

    The most obvious would be Mary, as i…

    In the trailer of Silent Hill (1999), I found a beta version of the Larval Stalkers. They look solid like a body rather than ghost-like. In the final, they were now ghost-like appearance. The reason why is they were to much like children (same way as Grey Children as they were replaced by Mumblers in Europe and Japanese version), so they make them like ghosts and cannot be killed. At 1:32 and 1:38.

    Time in Silent Hill

    December 11, 2013 by Thegamingmuse

    No one really knows when Silent Hill: Downpour actually happens.

    There are a lot of theories. Fans have scoured the game for clues, and their devotion has given us an opening of almost a decade wherein Downpour could’ve happened. The theories range anywhere from 2004 to 2016.

    Can we determine when the game happened? I think so. In fact, I’m certain I know exactly what year the game happened in - and I reasoned it out by exploring Silent Hill’s mythos and the way it presents time.

    It all comes back to this question: How does Time work in Silent Hill?

    So much is open to interpretation in Silent Hill. The games don’t give us concrete answers for most anything. Like, how exactly did the town come to exist? What power fuels it? How much belongs to th…

    To begin, let’s analyze James’ name. The prefix Sunder is Latin for shattered or breaking, and land, is a suffix meaning reality. Literally meaning broken reality James begins his adventure outside silent hill in a rest stop bathroom. His car is parked askew, doors open and his wife’s dead body is in the backseat. This shows the chaos of a man at his breaking point. To begin the game the player must pass through an isolated forest which fosters the feelings of isolation as we enter this man’s subconscious. Not only are we in Silent Hill, but we are in James’ mind. Silent Hill is full of locked doors, blocked roads and impassible obstacles. These ‘locks’ arerepressed memories that James can’t access. Slowly we delve into the ‘otherworld’ of…

    After noticing the voting section on the main page of the wiki, like most others I decided to check out Insert Coin's Silent Hill Apparel. Upon seeing the choices available, I pre-ordered the Lakeview Hotel shirt (I plan on having fun messing with people who don't know about Silent Hill, telling them I stayed there, at the Lakeview Hotel, on Toluca Lake, and that it was a lovely place heh). Well, I finally recieved the shirt and I gotta say the quality is incredible. Between the materials, the stitching and the Logo. Anyone who's still on the fence about ordering any of it, I can tell you with full confidence to just order. You won't be dissapointed with their work. I'm planning on picking up the Historical Society t-shirt now as well, and…

    I haven't been able to get back to playing SH2, so I haven't finshed my SH2 symbolism series just yet.  But, I thought I'd share something I wrote about SH4 in the meanwhile.  Enjoy!

    Silent Hill 4 is a strangely told story.  It lacks a great deal of the themes and motifs of previous games; locations are transient and are returned to repeatedly; puzzles, as they were before, do not exist; the loneliness of previous games is relieved by the large cast and the presence of a bustling town outside your window, though the feeling of isolation is still strong.

    These alterations make this a story that is hard to understand, especially because half of the tale has already happened.  By the time Henry is involved, 15 of the sacraments have occurred.  …

    Silent Hill 9: "Verified"?

    November 4, 2013 by Ozzkat

    OKAY FIRST NO ONE FREAK OUT AND SCREAM "OH MY GOD IT'S COMING TRUE."

    NONONONONONO.

    THIS IS MORE LIKE A QUESTIONING BLOG SO CALM YOUR JIMMIES.

    So, today I heard from Silent Hill Paradise that IMDb has "verified" that SH9 is due for release on September 29th, 2015, with Hideo Kojima as director. You can see it here.

    Now I'm pretty sure 99% of us know that IMDb is not a very creditable site, seeing as anyone can edit it. In just a few clicks, someone could've updated it to prompt pointless excitement just like that. However, I certainly wanted to bring this up, mainly to see if any of us here have heard this same news from a more reliable source?

    It's been confirmed by Tomm Hulett on Silent Hill Heaven's facebook page that none of the monsters in Downpour have anything to do with Murphy Pendleton. They are all manifestations of Anne. When asked about how the monsters could be hers, Tomm replied "Maybe she's afraid of people". He then said, "Dolls are loss of innocence". He went on to say, "Every monster has a potential Murphy meaning amd an Anne meaning. Murphy is a "wrong place" character who can be redeemed. Anne is the typical damned SH protag who must either be redeemed through Murphy (her Mary) or murdered - which damns Murphy".

    New theme

    October 11, 2013 by AlexShepherd

    Attention all readers and editors:

    The wiki is currently undergoing a new, darker theme. As such, a lot of templates will be required to be recolored and adjusted to match the color scheme. This process may take about a week or so. Some renders will need to be cropped more because white edges are more noticeable.

    If you have any suggestions regarding the overhaul, or site design in general, or have any comments, please comment below. Thanks~

    Once he escapes the apartments, James finds himself in the fog-filled streets of the town again.  It is here he meets Laura for the second time.  When first we saw her she stepped on James’ hand, taunted him, and ran off in the apartment building.  In both situations there is distance between her and James.  In the apartment, there were cell bars between them; in the street, Laura is up on a concrete wall.  Later, in the hospital, a wall of tables will separate them, and only when Laura willingly leaves that circle will she and James interact on the same level. 

    Laura has been described as bratty and annoying by gamers; I feel as if these people have completely misunderstood this story.  Laura is an eight-year old who, for some reason, was …

    Part One:  Welcome to Silent Hill, Please Enjoy Your Stay

    All of Silent Hill is subject to interpretation, and this one is mine. 

    In this massive project, I walk through the entirety of Silent Hill 2, connecting imagery, dialogue, level design, puzzles, notes, music, and everything else to certain messages, symbols, and meanings from literature, religion, folklore, and the larger canon of the Silent Hill series.

    Since this is my interpretation, that means it is my opinion, and in no way is my word law.  Feel free to critique or question my connections because this was written after a three day Silent Hill spree in which I, obsessed and sleep deprived, refused to stop typing words.

    That said, if you are interested…

    Homecoming and Cain & Abel

    September 14, 2013 by Xuchil

    *spoilers* cross posted from SHC.

    I only played through this game once and it was years ago. My memory may be completely wonky about it. But I do remember a lot of crucial details. It started from viewing this thread, when it all hit me.

    If anyone recalls the older works including many biblical and Abrahamic themes. Mostly from Catholicism and Jewish mysticism. I think Homecoming is deeper than people give it credit for.



    It started when Homecoming was announced and the names of Alex's parents were revealed. Adam and Lilian. They seem at glance to be nothing, but there is a myth of Adam and Lilith.(Something at the time I commented on.) However, Lilian is not etymologically related to Lilith. (See "Lilith" and"Lily" for more info.) But it's co…

    Cross posted from SHC, spoilers a foot!

    '



    Watching a lot of Slayers has opened doors to me on mythos in Asia, specifically Hindu, Buddhist, and Japanese folklore. I'm beginning to think the "false" god motif of the Eye of Night or "God" can be explained.

    In Japanese myths, taken from the Hindu/Buddhist concept of Asura (another set of gods, later translated as "demons".) and Devas (gods), mazoku literally means "demon race" or "evil race". These beings, which higher level ones can be as powerful as gods, are beings that thrive on chaos. They feed off of negative emotions of people. Their opposites are the shinzoku, or literally "god race" that benefit from worship and positive emotions. Both races are from chaos.

    I am thinking the "god" in Sil…

    A cross post from SHC with spoilers!

    First off the descent of God is not a literal myth. Its based on several mythologies, mostly Aztec in Silent Hill's case. (looking at the rituals to God and the references in the Lost Memos about human sacrifice to the sun, I am pretty sure its from Aztec rituals.)

    Origin


    In the beginning, people had nothing. Their bodies ached, and their hearts held nothing but hatred. They fought endlessly, but death never came. They despaired, stuck in the eternal quagmire.

    Myth - "2. Birth" 2. Birth

    A man offered a serpent to the sun and prayed for salvation. A woman offered a reed to the sun and asked for joy. Feeling pity for the sadness that had overrun the earth, God was born from those two people.

    This means that God w…

    ' Introduction

    I bring this up because it’s not noted by anyone else and many people in feminism seem to use it to focus on negative rather than some positive examples. While there are many games which have female protags and it’s something that’s been around for awhile I think SH3 was ground breaking in this area for several reasons. Heather, the main character, should be highlighted in the video game arena more for being one of the best written female video game characters.

    Many games, when having female protagonists, are still geared towards a male audience. (Yes, SH3 isn’t the exception here, but hear me out.) This usually manifests itself in over-sexua…

    Well first off, I started playing the games in late 2012 for the first time. I started with Silent Hill 2. My first impressions on the game was that it was different from any other horror game out there. My opinion on Silent Hill 2 is that I thought it was pretty awesome. I just loved the story with James and Mary. I also enjoyed Maria's Sub scenerio Born from a Wish. Born from a wish to me was very interesting to me. I liked the character Ernest Baldwin a lot, and I felt sorry for him. I loved the music in Silent Hill 2, in my opinion, "Theme of Laura" is one of the best songs in Silent Hill 2, because I like the beat and tempo that the song has. I liked the characters in Silent Hill 2. In my opinion all the characters were developed well…

    I have recently done a blog about potentially remaking Silent Hill: Origins and what could be done to it to make it properly successful and in line with older games. Now, I have decided to do the same for what is arguably the most divisive Silent Hill game – The Room.

    Most people will agree that it was one of (if not the most) experimental instalment of the series, one which was interesting, but with flawed execution. Thus, here are my best ideas of what I think will update the game for the modern times, letting its story and ideas shine in the modern day without being hampered by the design issues like before.

    P.S. If you were amongst the people who couldn’t read the earlier blog because of its size, rest assured: this one is two times smal…

    Elements of SH9

    September 2, 2013 by Ichigo124

    I've seen talk about what kind of path SH9 should follow; should it try something totally new, should it place like the recent titles, or should it revert to the style of the original trilogy?


    I think it'd be fun to consider several elements that the developers could put into it to make it the next great Silent Hill.

    Things such as:

    • Types of characters
    • Male or female protagonist (we haven't really had a female one since Heather. I wouldn't necessarily count Eileen or Elle).
    • Horror elements (jump-scares, suspense, shock, or mixtures of them?)
    • The type of otherworld. (What theme would be cool to showcase this time? We've seen blood, rust, mirrors, water, fire, and rain. Wonder what could be done next?)
    • The types of monsters.
    • The length. Do we want a…

    Recently, I have made the outline of what I think could be done to Silent Hill: Origins in order to allow it to reach its full potential. Unfortunately, I don’t think that the same would be worth for the Homecoming, because of several important issues that I haven’t yet seen anyone answer successfully.

    I’m not talking about the appearance of the Pyramid Head/Alex becomes Pyramid Head ending (that can be easily overwritten) or the superfluous character of Wheeler or even the weak pseudo-romance Elle arc (TVTropes provides surprising amount of evidence for him being gay). No, I’m talking about the following things:

    Silent Hill 4 Opinions

    August 27, 2013 by BrandonFox

    I've just finished Silent Hill 4 and I'm interested in hearing everybody else's opinions on those who have played and/or completed it before.


    Now this would be the fourth game in the series I've completed, having played Silent Hill, Silent Hill 2 and Silent Hill 3. Now I actually thought it was a really good game. It wasn't as good as the first three games in the series in my opinion, having noticably less story and writing with the characters, but the atmosphere and music was still brilliant. But that said, I still thought the story was good, just not as good as the original trilogy.


    My main gripes were the gameplay deviations from the other games such as the 10 item limit and having to constantly go back to Room 302 in order to drop off su…

    Last year we have had four important Silent Hill releases, and generally speaking, all of them were found wanted. The Revelation movie was universally panned, HD collection was famously bugged for a long time , Downpour also had its share of technical issues and bland design ... Book of Memories could almost be considered a success, since it at least never claimed to be horror. Now there is a (hopefully temporary) hiatus and we have seen some speculation here about what the next Silent Hill game could be and what would be the most feasible development for the franchise.

    Leaving the non-game media alone (though that is also an interesting subject: some game series did manage to regain their lost standing through the tie-ins), I think that fo…

    Hello Wikians (Wikites?), I'd like to suggest a change in how articles are set up. Some of our articles are quite long, and many of them include dozens of images in their galleries. This may make page loading difficult for people with slow browsers. My suggestion would be to create tabs for the long articles, particularly the gallery sections. It would also help keep things better organized than one super massive page that stretches into infinity. The coding itself is very simple, and would go on the article's main page. An example of what a tabbed article looks like is the Albert Wesker page on the Resident Evil wiki.

    However, there is some work involved with creating tabbed pages. Pages would need to be split into multiple smaller pages t…

    HOMECOMING: WORST GAME

    July 25, 2013 by DewK357

    From the title, you can tell what this blog is going to be all about. This is about why I think, out of the main eight games, why I think Silent Hill: Homecoming is the worst. Now, I don't want to randomly get attacked and bashed for this. I want anyone who is thinking about randomly saying stuff, to chill down and read why I say Homecoming the worst out of the main franchise. Main franchise meaning Silent Hill 1, 2, 3, The Room, Origins, Homecoming, Shattered Memories and Downpour.

    1. To start, it doesn't really seem like a survival horror feel. Now by saying this, I mean Alex has handled a gun before and he knows what it's like to fight! Harry, James, Heather haven't even done something like that! They weren't prepared or expecting what wa…

Well, anyway, a couple months ago, a complete stranger from the internet (oooooWEEEEooooooooo) bought and sent me a copy of Silent Hill: Homecoming! (Don't worry, I made him show a video of his face so I could recognize him if he ever tried to find my address) I've been playing it nonstop ever since I got it until I had just about everything completed.

    Now, I guess this is kinda-sorta a review and kinda-sorta not; lemme just say, I've heard a LOT of people complain that Homecoming was a bad game, the worst of the main series even, and I completely disagree. Having played the game to the fullest extent, I completely disagree. I've heard comments that are somewhat acc…

    SILENT HILL 9

    July 19, 2013 by DewK357

    Hi everyone, I am new here and I would like to discuss a topic I've seriously been thinking about. Silent Hill 9. It has only been a year and a half-ish since Downpour's release, but Silent Hill 2 and 3 were released two years apart. The longest break was three years, which was between The Room and Origins.

    I really would like to see a follow-up on Downpour. Though I heard many people didn't like it, with the exception of some frame rate issues, the story and setting was amazing. Though the monsters were somewhat weak, it was awesome. Murphy and Anne would be awesome in a sequel. Perhaps being able to play two different story lines with them?

    Or a sequel to Silent Hill 3? I'd like to see more gameplay with Heather, considering she is such an…

    PCSX2 and you!

    Are you a hardcore Silent Hill fan? Ever wanted to play your old PS2 games in HD? With wireless controllers? Don't want to bother with buggy subpar HD Collections *cough* or configuring outdated PC versions?

    You can with a little something called PCSX2. It's a completely FREE program, and is very easy to install and set up.

    What is PCSX2? PCSX2 is the future of the PS2. It's an open-source PC emulator compatible with the majority of PS2 games, so if you want to play Final Fantasy X, Kingdom Hearts, Ico, or any other PS2 game, it works just fine. There are also widescreen patches available for hundreds of games lacking widescreen support, including SH2, SH3 and SH4.

    Well first off, I first started playing Silent Hill on December 20, 2012. I bought the Silent Hill HD collection  for the Xbox 360. I beat Silent Hill 2 on easy on my first play through. Then I played Silent Hill 3. After beating Silent Hill 3 the first time, I decided to try and beat it on hard. I finished Silent Hill 3 on hard and got some pretty nice weapons like the unlimited sub machine gun and the beam saber and the flamethrower through the many times i played Silent Hill 3 since I first got it. Thats when I decided I could try and beat Silent Hill 2 on hard. Well the first part was easy like getting into the apartments and doing some of the puzzles.

    Okay, so we all know by now that the first two Silent Hill films were canonical to each other and served as movie interpretations of games 1 and 3.

    But what about the next film? It seems the director of Silent Hill: Revelation has spoken of some interest in directing the next one, but made a comment that he would rather develop an original story for the new Silent Hill movie to stand on its own.

    What do you guys think? Should we have another movie interpretation of one of the games, such as 2, 4, or Origins? Or should we have an original story for a stand-alone movie?

    If you had the choice, what do you think would make a third Silent Hill film good, dare I say great?

    Hello dear friends and fans!

    Anthony Luzier, Damian Christensen, and I (SilentResident), created a set of beautiful and detailed Silent Hill maps, and we are here to share them, with you.

    We the gamers and the Silent Hill fans loved exploring this beautiful, small quiet resort town of Silent Hill, right? But unfortunately there have never been any complete maps that show the entire town of Silent Hill with just one click. There never have been any good, complete and realistic maps of the town that includes all the places we visited in all the games to date - from Silent Hill 1 and Silent Hill Origins to Silent Hill Downpour, right? So here we come to correct this!

    So recently I played the "Born from a Wish" scenario from SH2, and I noticed that in there we find a book called "Lost Memories", this version is different from the one seen in the normal scenario and even mentions Xuchilbara. Also mentioned in the memo we have: 

    "With words of blood,

    drops of mist and

    the vessel of night,

    the grave become an open field.

    The people wept in fear and joy 

    at the reunion..."

    Words of blood = crimson ceremony, drops of mist = white chrism, the vessel of the night = obsidian goblet

    With this said, we can assume that the deity summoned by James in the Rebirth ending is Xulchibara, the red god, right? So if the red god is one that has control over the passage of life and death, could the red god be Valtiel? We see him tu…

    Now on many occasions, I've seen the Silent Hill series, most specifically the pilot installment, be called the "true" game if you want a digital trip through Hell. And I couldn't agree more, honestly. Of course fear is a matter of opinion, but there are some universal happenings that instinctually usher us into an apprehensive state.

    The thing I love most about this series is that it's not some gore or jump-scare oriented game meant to just give you a quick jump, like the indies Slenderman or what I've seen of Pesadelo. It's rooted in the desire of burrowing into your psyche and making you question your very own real world. I've said it so many times but I'll say it again... the series is just such a brobdingnagian, complex metaphor for ou…

    Hey all. I am currently in an English course that encompasses an ISU (independent study unit) and I have convinced my teacher to allow me to do the study on the novelization. I'll be using Ducky's translation, as well as the game itself. I know this isn't ground breaking news from Konami, but it is very exciting to me. Any thoughts or suggestions you guys have would be welcome. Thanks :)

    Self-explanatory. We'll be seeing a video about how the Psych Profile works in Shattered Memories. Totally dope. Thanks Climax for releasing publicly this material. It makes life as an editor a lot easier when you have access to renders, artwork, information, etc.

    So it's apparent that not many people like Homecoming, be it for the combat, the characters, or even the story. Me personally, I don't mind it. The characters are okay, the story's quite interesting in my opinion, and as for the combat, I haven't actually played the game myself, but I can see how some people would have difficulty with it.

    Now, I've done a lot of thinking about how they could have made the game better, and through this head canon of mine I've really grown to love my version of the story. I'm not denying the canon, I'd never do that. I'm simply saying, "What if?"

    So for those who don't know, Elle was originally supposed to be Laura grown up, but they changed it because Elle has a biological mother in the game whereas Laura was…

    Yes, this is obviously an April's Fools Joke, please don't be offended. :)


    OMG, this is just so awesome!

    So yesterday morning on Konami's site, this digital press release pamphlet was shown. It's titled Silent Hill HD Collection Remaster Collection, which is a touch-up of the recent infamous Silent Hill HD Collection, which was released a year ago.


    And I'm just sitting here so excited! :D

    Finally, I'll no longer have to drag out my dusty non-HD PS2s, or worry about tweaking the PC versions.

    This makes me a very happy Silent Hill fan! I CAN'T WAIT.

    Ah, thought it'd be an interesting subject to discuss. :D I found it suitable as a blog in opposition to a forum discussion, seeing as I doubt this will launch into a serious conversation regarding the Hill or anything. Probably just a short-lived blog among us crazed fans, ha ha. But if any of the admins feel it doesn't truly fit blog criteria or anything of the sort don't hesitate to do your thing. (:


    I just wanted to see which other fans out there collected Silent Hill memorabilia. :D Talk briefly about our collections, what we still wish for, all that good stuff... and perhaps even introduce other fans to SH material we're all gonna wish we had afterwards. Immediately. FUN FUN. Oh, also, tell us what got you into the saga to begin with!…

    I've heard a lot of people bitch, whine, and moan about Silent Hill: Downpour and its graphical issues. I've learned to work with the game instead of against it, and found that I had little to no issues while playing. I thought this could be helpful information for any players who had issues, or new players who are thinking of buying it and maybe have concerns after hearing all the complaints. Keep in mind: I played Downpour on the PS3, but I hope these methods will help 360 players as well.

    "But Jo, we shouldn't NEED a player's guide! The game shouldn't have any issues to begin with!" That's true, but every game that is developed is bound to have bugs. Hell, have you ever tried pouring Aglaophotis on a Larval Stalker in Lakeside Amusement Park?…

    As you know, there's a new Silent Hill comic coming out soon by Tristan T-rex Jones who also has done Ghost Busters comics; I was on his Facebook account and left a message talking about trying to crossover Silent Hill with Ghost Busters. He said that he could pitch the idea to IDW but us the fans have to show them that we want it and we want it made by him. I want to see if we can try and rally up enough people to get this to happen!

    I also want to know what other crossovers you guys would want to see happen if you could. Aside from a Ghost Busters crossover, I'd like to see an Evil Dead crossover or have Fredy Couger running around Silent Hill haunting past protagonists from the original Nightmare on Elm Streets. What would you like to se…
