Last week we featured Whitney’s ridiculously impressive collection of all things Silent Hill. If you considered yourself to be a proud owner — a tasteful connoisseur — of everything related to our favorite foggy town, that video probably replaced much of that pride with shame. Shame that stems from being an inadequate fan. Shame that even Resident Evil fans can feel now, thanks to this equally as impressive collection related to Capcom’s flagship video game franchise.
Did you miss our initial post on regarding the Deadite Of The Day contest? If not – don’t worry. We’re accepting submissions up until April 3rd at firstname.lastname@example.org (head inside for the full list of rules)! Winners will be announced daily from March 25th – April 5th (weekends excluded). Submissions will be open the whole time, so if you see something you think you can top… TOP IT!
I figured I’d start this off with a bang and announce a winner with one of the most extensive collections of anything I’ve ever seen! His name is Sean Gooding (@GonzoSean on Twitter) and he also runs the site Deadites Online. In his own words, “Up until a few years ago I owned a very large Evil Dead Collection, these pictures were from the height of my collecting days, I still own the full Scale replica of Ash’s chainsaw from Evil Dead 2 and some boxed figures and Blu Rays.” He also included a sketch of Ash that he did that’s pretty badass too.
Sadly, Sean hails from the UK. So if he wants to be eligible for the signed poster he needs to have someone in the US it can be mailed to. Hopefully he does! Though – again – we still have 9 more winners to announce who are also eligible. Head inside to check out his awesome former collection of stuff! It’s f*cking AMAZING!!! You’ll also find the original rules for the contest below the picture gallery! READ MORE
Remember how the first three months of the year were packed with amazing horror games, enough to throw even the most insatiable horror fan into a horror overdose-induced coma? Well, while this remains true, January is looking a little less appealing now that the Silent Hill HD Collection has been pushed back into March, to release alongside Downpour and Operation Raccoon City. No reason for the delay has been revealed just yet, but I hope it falls somewhere in the ‘extra polishing’ category.
For those keeping up I’ve provided a revised release schedule for the horror games coming out up until March, which you can find after the break.
Dark Horse Presents is simply one of the best anthologies around right now, offering wonderful comic snippets from an extremely diverse range of writers. There is something for everyone in each issue, and this month brings Hellboy into the action. Take a nice long gander at the preview ya jabroni!
Announced not long after Capcom revealed their Resident Evil: Revival Selection, Konami let loose their plans to remaster Silent Hill 2 and 3 in the Remastered Collection. Unlike Resident Evil, the new and improved Silent Hills will be exclusive to the PS3 (at least for the time being), but at least many gamers who missed these fantastic games the first time around will now have the opportunity to experience them with updated visuals.
The Remastered Collection is expected to release sometime in September or October, though no solid release date has been revealed yet. What’s even more exciting is the inclusion of full trophy support and updated in-game voice work from Mary Elizabeth McGlynn, who’s singing has appeared in almost every game in the main series. Head past the break for a few screenshots, unfortunately we don’t yet have a screen of the Pyramid Head mannequin rape scene but since I know many of you are clamoring to see it I will make it my duty to bring you a screenshot of that sometime in the near future.

Remember that exciting little reveal from E3 that Konami was joining Capcom in bringing back one of their classic horror franchises in HD? Well, thanks to GameStop, we finally have some new details regarding this collection. If you weren’t aware, both Silent Hill 2 and 3 are getting remastered with crisper visuals and new voicework before they get rereleased on the PS3. Unfortunately, only playstation fans will be getting the collection for now, but there’s a chance it’ll migrate to other platforms as well.
Granted, all of the info gleaned from the collection’s product page can change but if it’s true the important things are its September 20th release date, full trophy support (not a surprise), clearer 720p visuals, and a “completely updated in-game voiceover directed by series vocalist Mary Elizabeth McGlynn and soundtrack score enhancing the storytelling and ambient music within each re-mastered game.” Exciting.
