On the topic of Yamaoka, how's Shadows of the Damned?
Wow, you're the first I've seen who agrees with me in saying that SH3 was the best one. I completed it over 10 times, whereas I only completed SH2 once.
But with the HD collection coming, I am going to suck these games dry and platinum them both. As for Downpour, I may wait for a price drop and see how it is. I really didn't like Homecoming and came nowhere to completing it. Also, I think they should do a Silent Hill HD Collection for Origins and Shattered Memories as they were released on PS2 and I can't find the dedication to play games on handheld consoles. They aren't for me.
