Youtuber TJ Townsend has done what many would call the impossible. He took a screenshot from the original Doom game, with a resolution of 320×240, and used what I can only refer to as magic and wizardry to turn it into a 9600×7211 work of art. Sure, you can catch a glimpse of it above, but to really understand how much work was done to get to that, I highly recommend watching the very sped up process — the whole thing took him eight days to complete — after the jump.
The Silent Hill HD Collection is just a few short weeks away, so to help tide you over until its January 24 release, here’s a bunch of screenshots! For the unfamiliar, the HD Collection brings together Silent Hill 2 and 3, in HD, and with new voice work. There’s also full cheevo/trophy support, for those of you who like showing off your nerd cred to the world.
If the first three months are any indication, 2012 could easily beat last year’s comparably paltry offering of horror games. Head past the jump for a bunch of screenshots, if you dare. READ MORE
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.
