Tomm Hulett leaves Konami


It was known today that Tomm Hulett has left Konami, after 7 years working for the company as producer of the last five Silent Hill games (Origins, Shattered Memories, HD Collection, Downpour and Book of Memories). His entrance in the Silent Hill series was marked by the departure of Team Silent, the original team that created the series we know today, so, some fans tended to hate Tomm, refusing to accept his efforts to revive the series. Things have changed, but recently we were able to see some improvements on Silent Hill, with the recent release of Downpour, last year, which shown a bit more of how bright the future of the series could be. Some fans loved the last games while others just refuse anything new, so Tomm Hulett has been basically blamed for all the “bad” stuff that happened to the series, being considered as the destroyer of all the Silent Hill legacy left by Team Silent, instead of being the savior of the series, which is actually the truth.

Maybe now Tomm can rest and for the first time feel that he’s not the most hated person between the Silent Hill community, because someone else will take his place, maybe the next producer. Of one thing I’m sure, he did a great effort to bring Silent Hill back to its glory.

About the future, I can’t predict it, but again, I’m sure about one thing, it doesn’t matter how good or bad a possible game will be, haters are gonna hate.



Silent Hill: Book of Memories to be “canonical”

Recently, when questioned, on Tomm Hulett official blog, if Book of Memories was canonical or not, and if it fits in with the main series, the Silent Hill producer answered:

(…) That said, BoM’s story is canonical.

This means that Book of Memories, despite of being a spin-off when we talk about the gameplay, it still serves the series as a canonical entry, something that most of the fans didn’t expected.


Troy Baker won’t be the special guest in Love Psalm

I recently posted that Troy Baker would be the Love Psalm special guest that Tomm Hulett refered in SHC, however it seems that I was wrong, Troy Baker, the new voice actor for James Sunderland, won’t make part of Love Psalm, so who’s the mysterious guest? Any suggestions?

The special guest is not Troy Baker
– Tomm Hulett-

The special guest is not Troy Baker, and I’m glad that he isn’t the one, not that I don’t like him as a singer, but I was expecting only Mary Elizabeth, so I guess that I’m afraid to be disappointed. Still, if he was the special guest, that would be okay, I actually enjoyed the Shadows of the Damned theme, just not sure if that would fit Silent Hill, because, from what I was able to see in the live performances, Mary’s and Troy’s voices didn’t  fit at all – that’s my opinion.

Well, many people also refere the well known Joe Romersa, will he make his return to the series sharing the vocals with Mary Elizabeth McGlynn? That could be possible and personally I’d like that to happen, his tracks from previous games are very nice, as well as the lyrics he wrote to the songs by Mary Elizabeth McGlynn.

The 30 seconds preview of the song sounded great, not only because it’s an adaptation of my favourite music in the series but also because it brings back Mary Elizabeth McGlynn, someone I’ve missed alot in Downpour soundtrack. Glad that Book of Memories will have at least two songs with her, Love Psalm and Now We’re free, that also looks amazing – however I’d highlight the first one, no doubt about it!

What do you think about the soundtrack? In you’re opinion who’s the special guest.
