Random IGN updates

I surfed over to ign.com for the first time in a long while today (it’s a scary, commercialized place that I do not recommend visiting often), and I noticed two cool things: new screens of The Suffering: Ties That Bind and some information on the upcoming Silent Hill movie.

Sorry for the lack of updates recently, I’ve been putting in some hours at work to get my current project out the door. Also, everyone should go out right now and buy Killer7 (the GameCube version is superior). It’s not horror but it’s certainly pretty goddamn weird.

  1. I’m looking forward to The Suffering: The Ties That Bind.

    I saw some screenshots of the Silent Hill set. Looks pretty close to one of the games so far.

    And I think I’ll play it safe and rent Killer 7 first, but weird is good. It sure looked like it from all of the videos and trailers I’ve seen. 🙂

  2. I encourage every one to go out and buy Killer7, if only to promote the creation of odd, innovative games. Same with Katamari Damacy. Killer7 is freaking awesome, but even if you are a little alarmed by its oddness, buying it encourages developers to make games other than Generic RPG #34, Generic Shooting Game #283, or Generic Driving Game #452.

  3. Hi all. I just wanted to express my reservations about purchasing this game (I havent done so just yet since I am undecided about it). I just want some input from people that have played it. As far as I am concerned, I love the look of it, the storyline seems promising and I generally tend to give games some time to grow into me if they actually seem worthwhile. My main gripe is the control scheme which seems kind of restrictive(from what I’ve read in reviews) and I have read complains that the action bits are quite repetitive (enemies respawing all the time when you pass from the same area and all). I really want to support new ideas as games like e.g. Beyond Good and Evil are little gems that unfortunately tanked in sales despite being of immense quality. On the other hand, maybe some innovations are not meant to be supported just because they are too weird or have good ideas badly implemented (however being a guy that enjoyed PN.03 my taste in games is arguable, lol).

    Anyway I would appreciate more comments on the game before (if?) purchasing it.

  4. If you expect this game to be like your standard action game, you will be disappointed. Just don’t go into it with that expectation. If you are comparing it to something it is not, it won’t be fun. The control scheme is very odd for a shooter, but the game is amazingly fun. That’s what really matters in the end, right?

  5. I guess at the end of the day Killer 7 will always be a unique game at its own right.
    Capcom are trying different things gameplay wise and I think they should get some recognition for it. Meaning? Killer 7 in my shopping list (damn it is an ever expanding list as well,lol).
