I love video game music, always have, always will. From the great 8-bit tracks on the NES to the sweeping orchestral passages on today’s consoles, there are tracks that I will never forget, no matter what. I can still rattle off the music from Karnov, The Legend Of Zelda, Chrono Trigger, Secret Of Mana, Castlevania, and so much more.
Something I love seeing and hearing are people taking memorable video tunes and playing them on other instruments. As a guitarist, I find that I’m drawn to the guitar covers, but really any will do. And so, with that being said, below you can hear a classical guitar cover of Silent Hill 3‘s “You’re Not Here” as well as the SuperGuitarBros. dual guitar version of Chrono Cross‘s “Time’s Scar” (a track I’ve always found to be particularly beautiful). Enjoy! READ MORE
Michael J. Bassett‘s Silent Hill: Revelation 3D, in theaters this Friday, October 26 from Open Road. I know a lot of you guys have been waiting a long time for this one. Yesterday I hopped on the phone with Bassett and we discussed the differences between this new incarnation of the world and the one from the first film, shooting in 3D, the inclusion of the “Silent Hill 3″ game into the mythology and new lead Adelaide Clemens.
In the film, “For years, Heather Mason and her father have been on the run, always one step ahead of dangerous forces that she doesn’t fully understand. Now on the eve of her 18th birthday, plagued by terrifying nightmares and the disappearance of her father, Heather discovers she’s not who she thinks she is. The revelation leads her deeper into a demonic world that threatens to trap her in Silent Hill forever.”
Adelaide Clemens, Kit Harington, Sean Bean, Radha Mitchell, Deborah Kara Unger, Carrie-Anne Moss, and Malcolm McDowell all star in the sequel that’s based on the acclaimed survival horror video game franchise by KONAMI. READ MORE
The other night, I beat Silent Hill: Downpour. For those of you who are sitting back and scratching your head wondering, “Didn’t this game come out a few months ago?”, you would be right. But here’s what happened. I bought Silent Hill: Downpour and managed to squeeze in a few hours. Then, the following week, I bought Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City, brought it home, popped it into my Xbox and BAM! Dead Xbox.
So, for a few months, I was without an Xbox 360 and was suffering every moment of this long and unexpected video game exile. It got to the point where I couldn’t take it anymore. I caved, bought an Xbox, and dived immediately into the world of…..Minecraft. Yeah, I had to face some creepers to get my hands used to the 360 controller once again. And after building a badass world with TJ (and a little bit with Adam, even though he likes to destroy other people’s creations), I got my mitts all set again. I was ready to enter that foggy world once again! READ MORE

Perhaps it was because of Capcom announcing HD remakes of Code Veronica and Resident Evil 4, but SUPER exciting and awesome news was announced at Konami’s pre-E3 press conference. Silent Hill 2 and 3 are going to get HD makeovers and packaged together in the Silent Hill: Collection. YES! I can’t say I’m surprised, switching classic games over to HD is definitely in.
It’s true there WAS a hole, in my heart. It will soon be filled with HD gloriousness. No other info is known, no release dates, no screens, no videos, and no systems. But who cares, awesome! READ MORE
