Rumor Has It: Microsoft Wants to Save Silent Hills

Take this all with a grain of salt; it's purely rumor, but if it's true we'll be able to dry our collective nerd tears and replace them with delighted, terrified screams as early as next year.

An anonymous industry insider is claiming that Microsoft is trying to buy Silent Hills now that Konami has shut the project down.  If true, the game would become an Xbox One exclusive, and the source claims it could be out as soon as March of next year.  The logic is that the Xbox One is in desperate need of exclusive games, and Microsoft wants to secure a big title in time for E3.  Konami has moved to mobile development, and thus has no need for a property like the Silent Hill series, which they are now in a position to sell for billions of dollars.  Supposedly the PT demo disappeared from the Sony store as a show of good faith in Konami's commitment to the deal.

Can the source be trusted?  This person apparently originally leaked information that the Xbox One would be sold without a Kinect attached during a time in which Microsoft claimed they would never seperate the two.  I wouldn't get your hopes up too high though, it's entirely possible that this is all completely untrue, and even if the intent is there, the deal may not go through.

Remember, they're not liable for any personal injury.  I hope that means I'm also not liable for any brick mayhem that may occur during my visit.

The Cringeworthyness of This Infomercial for 'Catlateral Damage' Fuels Me

Catlateral Damage, the game that lets you play as the a-hole cat you've always wanted to be, is officially out in the market, and it's got a terrible infomercial to go with it!  

Yeah, this video is cringey, but let's not kid ourselves here.  Remember the bread simulator? Who didn't want to play that?  Catlateral Damage is basically the love child of that game and all those videos of cats being jerks.



Some early Steam reviews bring major praise for Catlateral Damage:

"It's weirdly meditative. Also you can unlock a cat that farts instead of meows.

10/10, GOTY" -megalomanium

"YES! Now I can cat and destroy stuff without annoying the humans. ** that one cup in particular. Also, I will eat this fern. I am totally not a cat, but online, nobody knows if you are a cat. Meow! I mean, human words because I am a human." -[MLD] The_Doctor


Shut up and take this dead bird as payment, human!
