Silent Hill: Homecoming classified by Australia's OFLC

After being refused classification by the OFLC -- Australia's ratings board -- Silent Hill: Homecoming is finally coming home Down Under with an MA15+ rating.

Joystiq E3 hands-on: Silent Hill: Homecoming

A few things. First, I love the Silent Hill series. Second, E3 really isn't the venue for demoing a Silent Hill game.

Vampires rejoice, Harker on "indefinite hold"

After a brief burst of early hype, The Collective's Harker -- a vampire slaying action game -- completely disappeared. Of course, that makes sense when you factor in the fact that The Collective (who have now been combined with Shiny to form the new Double Helix studio) was later handed the reins ...

Harker put on 'indefinite hold'

Now that we think about it, we haven't heard a peep about The Collective's next-gen vampire-hunting sim Harker (as in Jonathan Harker, protagonist of Bram Stoker's Dracula, the book based on the movie based on the Sega CD game of the same name) in quite a while.
