Post: Think the next game will require more?

As any long-time fan can tell you, Amnesia was essentially Penumbra for those who thought it was too deep, hard and scary. Storyline was simplified, difficulty was toned down with gimmicks and stuff l...

Post: RE: Would I like Silent Hill?

Yes. Silent Hill 2 is personally considered the most beautiful game I've ever played; and I play adventure games.

Opening the windows, leaving doors/cupboards half open and taking out the lights in most rooms help a lot. You want sound to create atmosphere, and wind is pretty dang good at doing that. You could a...

Post: RE: Would I like Silent Hill?

So it's the first mob that can actually kill you; not the first one in the game. I have to admit, my memory is sometimes fuzzy at times. Regardless, it serves as a valid point from a gameplay perspec...

I think co-op is pretty silly. What I wouldn't mind seeing though is some first person spectator mode. A lot of skype conversations just to share the fear has been popping up, and it'd elimate the wh...

Definitely. The whole no-save thing makes it even scarier. There was one part where I failed, so I started building up to make it. I accidently miscalculated, and tried to fix the situation ASAP. Nee...
