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.
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
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.
