Last week, the Italian version of Xbox360 Magazine quoted Silent Hill Downpour art director Radek Marek as saying:

"At the moment there will be no multiplayer modes in Silent Hill: Downpour, but Konami are investigating a separate chapter devoted entirely to the Multiplayer. ... We do not know the details but it should be an XBLA title that most players have to survive in the town of Silent Hill."

The quote seemed to be confirmation that Konami was working on a multiplayer Silent Hill project that would likely have ended up being a stand-alone XBox Live downloadable game. But Konami was quick to debunk the claim a few days later, saying that Marek's comment was mistranslated and clarifying:

"Whoever that Italian interviewer was either took Radeks comments completely out of context, or it was lost in translation. As previously mentioned, we were (many moons ago) investigating a separate Multiplayer mode, but that was quickly extinguished when we costed it out and determined how much resource time it would detract from the core singleplayer experience."

So it would seem that Silent Hill fans will be going without any sort of multiplayer mode in the near future.

New photos from set of Silent Hill Revelation 3D movie

Silent Hill 2 movie on-set

Hot off the release of the first official filming photos from the Silent Hill movie sequel yesterday, some new photos from the set of that movie have been made public (don't think these ones are official though). You can see all the pics at Century 21's website (don't know why a real-estate company is posting photos from a movie set...). These photos mostly show some painting and remodeling work being done by the movie's production staff to make Cambridge, Ontario look like Silent Hill, but there is one photo that stood out to me:

Earlier this month, an official photo of actress Adelaide Clemens as Heather Mason in the upcoming Silent Hill: Revelation 3D was released to the public. It was an interesting photo that probably made a lot of fans of Silent Hill very hopefully that this sequel might actually turn out right.

Take a look at the photo, then read the official plot synopsis for the movie:

Adelaide Clemens as Heather Mason (Silent Hill Revalations 3D)

“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.”

Sounds pretty promising doesn't it?

Quite a bit of interesting news in the gaming world this weekend (well, interesting for me anyway).

One little tidbit of bittersweet news came in the form of the release of a new Trine 2 trailer and the accompanying announcement that the game has been pushed back a few months to late summer.

The new trailer can be seen below:

Earlier today, EA released the first screenshot for NCAA Football 2012 through the ESPN website.

In addition to giving us the screenshot (and our first taste of the new game), EA also promised that they would break down the new features that the screenshot is supposed to showcase.

But just because EA is going to spoil all the answers to the puzzle they've given us, doesn't mean we can't dissect this little gem ourselves:

Catherine focuses too much on twitchy puzzles and not enough social simulationCatherine focuses too much on twitchy puzzles and not enough social simulation01/02/2012 Despite the over-corporatization of the video game industry, not every game is going to be a consumer mega-hit like whatever Call of Duty game that happens to be coming out any given November. Sometimes, these little-known, niche titles can be real gems in the rough (Demon’s Souls, Trine). Other times, they just barely get by....
