Well that's dead now!

So I was casually minding my own business yesterday when I get a text from a friend saying that Blojima is taking over Silent Hill and some dude Guillermo del Toro will be the director and really, it's dead now!  Let's be realistic about this people.  Remember when he took over Castlevania?!  Remember how many long ass cutscenes there were in it?!  Plus he had completely screwed up the cannon of Castlevania!  A Belmont had become Dracula?!  What?!  Come on now!  Then what happened after that!?  The sequel resulted in me baring witness to one of the stupidest things I'd ever seen in my life; a battle royale between Dracula and Satan!  And even though Blojima had nothing to do with the sequel, him screwing over the cannon was the reason why I had seen some claptrap like that!

And don't even get me started on how much of an egomaniacal douche Blojima is.  As stated a few entries ago, in rewatching MGS4, "By the time the credits in the beginning finish rolling, you've seen his name 8 separate times!"  Also in that last demo for MGS5, let us remind you all, that he actually put himself in the game!  Really, you need attention that badly?!  Come on now!  So I'm expecting him to throw himself or his name up a few dozen times before the end of the game.  Or throw some dumbass Metal Gear reference into it, because the man can't help but pat himself on the back all day long.

Another thing that's bugging me about this who situation is this ridiculous need to keep throwing celebrities into the mix!  Grant it, Guillermo del Toro is a director, but still.  In Castlevania he threw in Patrick Stewart, which is fine and everything, and I like Patrick Stewart in all, but still!  I don't think he really added a whole lot to the story.  And Metal Gear...  Ugh....  In Metal Gear he swapped out poor sweet David Hayter and put friggin' Kiefer Sutherland in his stead?!  What the hell is a Kiefer anyway?!  Sounds like what happens when a guy named Keith and a random heifer have a baby, you get Kiefer, but I digress.  Celebrities do not instantly give you an edge for a great game.  I'd rather have a great game with several of no-named voice actors, than a crappy game with one celebrity voice actor.

Edit-  Ok, so apparently the token celebrity they've chosen for this is some guy named Norman Reedus.  Now before people jump all down my throat, I don't watch a lot of television or movies, so I had no idea he was the dude from The Walking Dead (non- Resident Evil zombies + Aa-chan = hell no!), but that's the dude who will be portraying the main character in "Silent Hillz Hills".

But I guess this is the nail in the coffin for the Silent Hill series.  Grant it, I got to this party a bit late, but the handful of years I spent enamored with Silent Hill were good years and I'm going to miss that game.  Konami needs to get their lives together and bring some fresh blood into their ranks, because having Blojima do their top franchise games is not helping at all.

    Wands never left! Yeah, so apparently J-rock group Wands came back and I'm just confused. I thought I had seen a little while ago that they were…
