Silent Hills PT Logo

Hideo Kojima, Guillermo del Toro and Norman Reedus are bringing us Silent Hills and they decided to generate a bit of hype for Kojima’s project by releasing the PlayStation 4 playable teaser known only as P.T.

By the time I got around to it, the cat was out of the bag. People already discovered P.T was actually a teaser for Silent Hills. According to Kojima, this teaser was supposed to be cryptic and take the community at large a week or so to decrypt — unfortunately it took less than a day.

Checkpoint: We’ve Got Time For Games Edition

The release of New Super Mario Bros. Wii, Left4Dead 2 and Assassin’s Creed 2 signified the end of major releases for 2009. There are still noteworthy ones throughout the rest of the year, but it’s more spread out and not jammed into a single week. I’m looking forward to this calm.

I still have yet to start the new Ratchet & Clank. I have NSMBWii and God of War Collection coming. And that’s without the fact that I still wish to play Modern Warfare 2 and Forza 3 regularly. That’s a lot of games and, thankfully, we’ve now got the time. The only releases which I’ve deemed noteworthy include:

  • The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks – DS – Dec. 7, 2009
  • The Saboteur – PS3, 360, PC – Dec. 8, 2009
  • Silent Hill: Shattered Memories – Wii – Dec. 8, 2009
  • Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: The Crystal Bearers – Wii – Dec. 26, 2009

Three games in one week. 2009’s gaming finishes with one final push in December and then it’s onto 2010.

I don’t know if I will get Spirit Tracks since I have yet to finish Phantom Hourglass. As for the other two? I re-imagining of the original Silent Hill is very much welcomed since I’ve not gotten a chance to try the original yet. And The Saboteur looks to be visually intriguing to say the least. It’s Pandemic Studio’s last game and it looks to be pretty decent.

Edit: I also forgot about The Crystal Bearers.
