Silent Hill is a survival horror game series which is world wide acclaimed for its horrific content,amazing graphics,superb sound effects and addictive gameplay.

The Silent Hill game has a unique creepy touch of survival horror which is amazingly blended with scary graphics and eye popping visual effects. The world detail and the various characters detail are something which adrenalize the gameplay. Each and every part of this horror series has a storyline which dives you in the centre of the most horrifying nightmares you would have ever faced and this time its the worst one which you have to face. Below are some of the snapshots of the game.

To be true, I was really excited when KONAMI launched first installment of the game as SILENT HILL in 1999 for
the Playstation platform but the interesting fact is that I was so horrified by its gameplay that it scared the
hell out of me and I just gave up within half hour of the gameplay and never tried again though I played later
installments of the game. Plotted by the game designer ‘Keiichiro Toyama’, Silent Hill centered itself on Harry
Mason, arriving in Silent Hill and his deliberate attempts for finding his adopted daughter and getting himself in
the center of the deadly horror. Here is a video that KONAMI showed up in E3 2011.

httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OLruIB8fZpY

Silent Hill : Downpour features a character called Murphy Pendleton, a prisoner getting transported to some
other place but accidently finds himself in the condition of solitude and in a place called Silent Hill. Gamers
will be Playing the game as Murphy and will have to uncover the mystery of his nightmares.

Konami says, “Murphy Pendleton has been incarcerated for several years, having had his sentence extended once already. Due to his history at Ryall State Prison, he is being transferred to nearby Wayside Maximum Security Penitentiary-but a freak accident cuts the journey short. Waking up in a forest next to the wrecked bus, Murphy has a clear shot at freedom. He makes his way into the sleepy town of Silent Hill where mysterious locals welcome him into a slowly developing personal hell. Silent Hill Downpour is the latest Silent Hill game offering the familiar Survival Horror gameplay delivered in the most defined visual quality to date. The game also expands on the exploration theme of the franchise both design-wise and through psychological torture, ambient story, horrific enemies and self-evaluative questions of despair”.

The game looks more creepy than ever and the video trailers clearly show how the graphics,sound and gameplay is taken to the next level of gaming though keeping its old but unique survival horror touch. I am eagerly waiting for the game to get launched and to face the hell once again. Are you also excited ???

KONAMI is well known in gaming industry for their arcade games and Polarbit had already proved their worth by developing games like ‘Reckless Racing’ on android platform, so gamers can expect much better level of graphics and visual effects.

 Krazy Kart Racing has a touch of humor which makes it really addictive while playing. Its Gameplay and Graphics will definetly make you think of one of the most popular games of Sony PSone i.e Crash Team Racing developed by ‘Naughty Dog’. Though sound effects are not upto that level which is the only drawback in this game otherwise it would have been awsome. Some snapshots of the game are given blow.


Gamers can choose between three different play modes which are Quick Race,Single Player, Multiplayer. Quick race is to directly dive into action with prior selected character and track. In Single Player Mode, according to mood, gamers can select between Krazy GP,Trials,Free Run, Time Attack and Mini Battle.

Gamers need to utilise different type of power-ups like nitro boost,missiles etc. for getting ahead. One of the only drawback in this game is the sound effect. Lack of sound effects doesn’t let you know that which character struck you in the race which is really annoying. Here’s a video for you people to check out.

httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MDqp51FQv_g

HITMAN ABSOLUTION: Agent 47 Is Coming Back In 2012 [VIDEO]

I-O Interactive, venture of Square Enix Europe has confirmed the fifth sequel to its HITMAN SERIES. They will be launching HITMAN V as HITMAN ABSOLUTION in next year around June 2012. This game will be available for Microsoft xbox 360,PlayStaion 3 and Windows PC. HITMAN has been a multi-million selling gaming title which gamers love for its stealth gameplay. HITMAN ABSOLUTION will be using a new game engine ‘GLACIER 2’ featuring amazing life like graphics, highly detailed visual effects, new moves with better animation and much more.

Glacier 2TM technology is IO Interactive’s new game engine on which HITMAN ABSOLUTION is built upon. HITMAN V gamers will witness highly original game design, amazing cinematic Story, unique art design. It will have a touch of both classic gameplay and completely new gameplay features.
Some of the snapshots as provided by IO Interactive are showcased below.

hm1
hm2
hm3

In a press release in COPENHAGEN (May 11, 2011) IO Interactive confirmed HITMAN V and described it as : ‘HITMAN ABSOLUTION follows Agent 47®, a cold blooded assassin, who takes on his most dangerous contract to date. Betrayed by those he trusted and hunted by the police, he finds himself at the centre of a dark conspiracy and must embark on a personal journey through a corrupt and twisted world, in his search for the truth.’

“For the first time we are taking Agent 47 on a personal journey which allows us to explore other parts of the HITMAN® fantasy,” said Tore Blystad, game director, IO Interactive. “This is both a familiar and yet significantly different experience to any of the other Hitman games, something our silent assassins will relish as well as those who are new to the Hitman world.”

The Game will be showcased only at the upcoming Electronic Entertainment Expo in Los Angeles, Califorina from June 7-9

When first title of this HITMAN series was released as HITMAN : CODENAME 47 in year 2000, it gave gamers a new way of playing third person shooter games which was stealth based assasination. The game was not like other ruthless shooter games in which objective was just to kill objects and run like a fool. HITMAN was different, he was silent, smart and dangerous. The core objective in each level is to kill assigned targets (usually multiple and sometimes additional targets as an optional bonus).

 In most cases, ‘Hitman’ allows the player different options to accomplish this task. Players can perform precise assassinations or slaughter indiscriminately in order to achieve the mission goals; however, the games reward a subtle approach by awarding special weapons or cash bonuses if players earn a favourable rank (usually achievable by eliminating only the assigned target, and without raising the alarm doing so). 47 can also wear a variety of disguises (such as repairmen, police officers and waiters) to fool enemies and gain access to restricted areas.

The focus of ‘Hitman’ is not hiding in the shadows from the enemy, but rather blending in amongst them. It is up to the player to initiate the violence, since guards do not usually open fire unless provoked. This unique gameplay made it a multi million selling title.  The trailer of the latest part HITMAN ABSOLUTION is given below but you have to be above 18 to view it.  😉

httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T2_uFewVo-0

HITMAN Saga continued with Hitman 2: Silent Assassin released in 2002, Hitman: Contracts released in 2004, Hitman: Blood Money released in 2006,  Hitman: Absolution due for release in 2012. Gamers may have their hands on this game on June 2012. The question is that though the snapshots of the latest title look impressive and the trailer too looks adrenalizing but will it quench the thirst of gamers for the stealth action. Graphics and gameplay showcased in snaps and trailers are good but violence shown in trailer irrespective of its stealth gameplay is a big question mark for gamers because going away from the track can make gamers unsatisfied. Lets see what IO INTERACTIVE, EIDOS and SQUARE ENIX are upto with their new gameing engine technology ‘GLACIER 2tm’, FINGERS CROSSED.

The dialogues have the same old humour or should say much better because these dialogues will make you laugh out loud.

New weaponry is really impressive. The destruction caused by Banana Bomb and Super Sheep will make your eyes go wide. The inventory filled with weapons like Spartan Kick,The Brick,Dragon Ball will adrenalize your nervous system and your brain will say “Fire,Fire…Fire”.For newbies,game can be little bit mind twisting so I would suggest them to go for a practice match. The projectile usage for weapons needs some practise and gamers should know about each and every weapon that they have so as to gain advantage and give some competition to their opponents.
