Bloober Team are apparently working with Konami on a new Silent Hill which should be…interesting
DUDE! Siren: Blood Curse and Haunting Ground remain some of my favorite horror experiences ever! Blood Curse really gets overlooked in terms of it it’s monster and environmental designs, and they all hold up so well today. I would love to meet the development team and ask them all about their inspirations and stuff...the maggot shibito and shibito brains remain as some oof the most disturbing monster designs I’ve ever seen in a game.
While Haunting Ground definitely is kind of overall more of a patchy experience for me, especially towards the end, the section with Daniella the maid is what I personally consider to be the best pursuee/stalker horror section in a video game. Nemesis, Mr. X, and Jack are all amazing and of course iconic, but Daniella’s amazingly evil voice acting (that LAUGH!), her psychological issues with her self image, the poker scene, the glass scene...there’s something terrifying about a being so beautiful, so perfect...but so damaged inside. I don’t know who her voice actress is, but she did an AMAZING job. I hope someday Capcom remakes this game, as I think an updated version with some story tweaks or expansions would go over super well.
On an entirely unrelated note, I started Persona 5 Royal and I am OBSESSED. And I hate high school anime most of the time.
