Konami is launching Silent Hill Shattered Memories and Silent Hill Origins, two Climax classics, for Vita! They announced in their blog today.:
"PlayStation®Network as KONAMI’s terrifying duo head to PlayStation®Vita
Origins and Shattered Memories head up welcome return for KONAMI’s classic psychological horror series
Konami Digital Entertainment B.V will soon unleash the ultimate horror double bill for PlayStation®Vita with Silent Hill: Origins and Silent Hill: Shattered Memories set for release via the PlayStation®Network service. Release date will be announced shortly.
Previously available for Sony’s PSP® (PlayStation®Portable) system, the two games are priced at just £7.99/9,95 Euro each and offer a very different take on KONAMI’s legendary Silent Hill series.
Silent Hill: Origins acts as a prequel to the series and follows Travis Grady, a truck driver, as he enters the mist-shrouded town to dig up information on a girl he rescued from a fire. Silent Hill: Origins uses the series’ famed third-person perspective to trail Travis as he explores the seemingly abandoned town, collecting items to help him in his search. As he ventures further into the town, however, memories of his childhood haunt him – and then the monsters come out…
Silent Hill: Shattered Memories is widely regarded as the most innovative addition to the series, and adapts its gameplay to the decisions the player makes. Effectively a remaining of the first Silent Hill, Shattered Memories retains the premise of the first game – Harry Mason’s search for his missing daughter – but has a plot that changes dependent on the use. The game is framed by a visit to a psychotherapist, wherein the user is asked questions – while the characters Harry meets in the game will also react differently depending on how they are approached, the questions they are asked, or how Harry interacts with them physically.
Silent Hill: Shattered Memories also removes all combat elements from the game, with players forced to flee when the town’s inhuman denizens give chase, adding a nightmarish quality to the game and the impression that danger lurks in ever dark corner.
The Silent Hill series enjoys a stunning reputation for innovation and terror, and these re-issues will introduce a new generation of users to its terrifying secrets…”
Adrianne Haslet-Davis dances again for the first time since the Boston terrorist attack last year.
When the bombs went off at the Boston Marathon finish line, Adrianne Haslet-Davis lost the lower half of her left leg in the explosion. She’s a ballroom dance teacher, and she assumed she would never dance again. With most prosthetics, she wouldn’t.
But Hugh Herr, of the MIT Media Lab, wanted to find a way to help her. He created a bionic limb specifically for dancers, studying the way they move and adapting the limb to fit their motion. (He explains how he did it here.)
At TED2014, Adrianne danced for the first time since the attack, wearing the bionic limb that Hugh created for her.
Hugh says, “It was 3.5 seconds between the bomb blasts in the Boston terrorist attack. In 3.5 seconds, the criminals and cowards took Adrianne off the dance floor. In 200 days, we put her back. We will not be intimidated, brought down, diminished, conquered or stopped by acts of violence.”
Amen to that, Hugh.
