Robbie the Rabbit Gashapon Coming Out This December

Posted By: Whitney   September 4th, 2015 | 8:09 am


Oh my! I never thought I would ever see a Silent Hill themed gashapon.

@TOYminiNEWS tweeted a picture of the full Robbie kychain lineup along with a vague release date of “December” this morning.

The set contains 3 pink and 3 blue variations of the mascot weaponless, holding a pipe, and lastly holding a chainsaw.

You can pre-order a bag of 10 toys for $27.99 at Big Bad Toy Store.

Not a lot more information so far but I know I’m hoping they will expand the line to include other Silent Hill characters!

From the Lost Days a new Fan Film on Indiegogo

Posted By: Whitney   July 17th, 2015 | 1:13 pm


Last year Alex Slevin of FoG Films tried to crowdfund his fan film, From the Lost Days – Silent Hill 15th Anniversary Film, a live action feature film that adapted both the Silent Hill & Silent Hill 3 video games through Kickstarter. Unfortunately the project wasn’t funded back then but thankfully the team is trying again on Indieogogo!

Fans may remember FoG Film’s first foray in the Silent Hill fan film territory with their adaption of Silent Hill 2, Broken Notes, back in 2008. Like Broken Notes, From the Lost Days will be shot in Spanish but will be subtitled in English with more language subtitles options hopefully in the future.


The campaign has 20 days left to reach their goal of €2,500 EUR. If the project reaches its crowdfunding goal filming will begin next month in various locations in the Alicante province of Spain, with a tentative release sometime in the first quarter of 2016.

From interview with Alex last year and seeing the cast, location photos and pre production artwork on the Facebook and Indiegogo page I am really excited to see Lost Days happen! The first game is my favorite in the series so it will be a real treat to see a more faithful film adaptation.

Full Press Release

Fog · Films a spanish film production association, which spent seven years doing independent productions, is finalizing the details on preproduction

for his next film “FROM THE LOST DAYS,” a new adaptation of the cult Silent Hill video game series.

The first attempt to adapt the Silent Hill series came with “BROKEN NOTES” which was done with a very low budget but nevertheless It had a significant impact on the internet thanks to fans of the popular franchise created by Konami in 1999. This group of filmmakers has decided to launch a more solid and ambitious project for which they seek funds and other support through the crowdfunding platform Indiegogo.

The aim is to create a faithfully adaptation of the Sillent Hill plot and characters trying to move away from the typical clichés and commercial film conventions in this type of productions.

“FROM THE LOST DAYS” is an adaptation of the first and third Silent Hill games. It has the enigmatic plot, the strange places and the even stranger characters taken from the games, but arranged to create a coherent single feature film.

If the project reaches the crowdfunding goal it will be filmed in various locations in the province of Alicante in Spain during August 2015.

The objective is to deliver the film in the first quarter of 2016.

The Fog·Films association appreciates any support or broadcasting shows that could help us to move forward with this non-profit project.

Thank you for showing your interest. We are really thankful for all your support.

Voices in the Static #28 – Silent Hills is Officially Cancelled

Posted By: Whitney   May 6th, 2015 | 8:38 pm


In this twenty-eighth episode I will be discussing last week’s heartbreaking news that Silent Hills is cancelled with fellow Silent Hill fans.


P.T. Wiped From PSN and Can’t Even Be Re-Downloaded

Posted By: Whitney   May 6th, 2015 | 12:22 pm


Well like Silent Hills, P.T. is officially gone. (on the US PSN atm)

Last week, a day after P.T.’s de-listing, Eurogamer tested to see if P.T. could be recovered if deleted from a PS4 and found to fan’s relief that, yes, P.T. remained in your downloads for re-download if you had the demo on your PS4.

Well this isn’t the case anymore.

Last night news broke that P.T. has been eradicated from PSN servers.


Konami is doing their best to make any and all references to Silent Hills obsolete and it will officially become a game I used to know.

It’s official Silent Hills isn’t happening

Posted By: Whitney   April 27th, 2015 | 10:09 am


Early this morning Konami gave an official statement to Kotaku regarding Silent Hills fate:

Konami is committed to new Silent Hill titles, however the embryonic ‘Silent Hills’ project developed with Guillermo del Toro and featuring the likeness of Norman Reedus will not be continued.

In terms of Kojima and Del Toro being involved, discussions on future Silent Hill projects are currently underway, and please stay tuned for further announcements.

Sad news to be sure, but hey at least now it’s officially canned.

Now we know…

Such a shame, the P.T. demo stirred up excitement from fans and the general public alike and showed a promising new direction for the series. I guess at this point all we can do now is wait and see what Konami has in store though, if I’m honest, despite Konami’s assurances, the fate of the series continuing seems rather grim to me.

Oh well. The hype was nice while it lasted eh?

If you haven’t already be sure to download the P.T. demo off PSN before it’s taken down April 29,2015, it is well worth the playthrough and imagine what could have been…

Konami Please… [Updated]

Posted By: Whitney   April 26th, 2015 | 10:35 am


Don’t drag this out any longer.

The signs are all there: Kojima is leaving, P.T. is being pulled from PSN, and now this sad quote regarding Silent Hills from Guillermo del Toro during the San Francisco International Film Festival last night:

“It’s not gonna happen and that breaks my greasy heart.”

Will you just confirm that Silent Hills is cancelled already? :(


Apparently the Guillermo quote that was passed around today was taken a bit out of context. The “it’s not going to happen” was in regards to collaborating with Kojima, not whether or not the game has been cancelled. As of right now Silent Hills’ status remains up in the air. This is the time to say something one way or another Konami. :(

P.T. Demo will only be available for download until April 29, 2015!

Posted By: Whitney   April 25th, 2015 | 7:03 pm


Well this really, really, sucks.

News broke this afternoon on various FB fan pages that the P.T. Demo will be taken off the PSN marketplace April 29, 2015.

Alchemilla Hospital reports that this sort of removal is pretty common since Sony charges the companies a fee for the downloads so demos have limited distribution periods and are routinely removed from PSN.

Now if you are like me without access to a a PS4 there may still be a chance to download the demo even after the distribution period expires. When Alchemilla Hospital broke the news on their FB page Christopher John Karl Green left this comment:

Make a PSN account. Sign in at!/en-ca/home/main search for PT, and add it to your download list for when you eventually get one.

It may be a long shot but if you have no way of obtaining a PS4 before the 29th it’s worth a try. It looks like I will have to bite the bullet and buy a PS4 now rather than later. :(

Donna Burke: Kojima was fired by Konami [UPDATE – Not really]

Posted By: Whitney   April 9th, 2015 | 9:40 am

UPDATE – April 11, 2015

Donna Burke has revised her original statement on her Facebook last night:


I’m glad to hear that Kojima wasn’t fired but I’m still confused over Ms. Burke’s word choice. Though from a friend and co-worker perspective it may just seem like Kojima’s demoted role within the company is on par with being fired even if he is technically still working with the company at the present time.

Just goes to show it is important to be careful how you describe a situation, especially when there’s a lot of uncertainty and a passionate fan base.

Original Post April 9, 2015

Well the whole Hideo Kojima/Konami fiasco just continues to get more depressing with each day.

Donna Burke voice actress for both the Silent Hill (Angela (SH2), Claudia (SH3)) and Metal Gear Solid Ground Zeroes revealed on her twitter that Hideo Kojima was indeed fired by Konami upper management.


Ouch. reached out to Konami for comment and they simply said that Burke’s comments are “categorically incorrect.”
