Silent Hill 4 tidbits

I have one of those discount cards at Gamestop. Along with with it comes a subscription to a magazine I never remember to read. The latest one has a page on Silent Hill 4.

The good: Same screenshots I’ve been seeing all over the Web, but damn does this game look good. And although he’s not really shown in the magazine blurb…uh, Henry’s kind of hot. …move along, nothing to see here.

The bad: The combat system being compared with a golf game (hit button to start swinging, hit again at “the right time” to hit critter) does not give me the warm fuzzies–and I don’t mean that in the way this game is supposed to not give me the warm fuzzies. Also, there’s apparently no swing meter.

The ugly: …what the hell do you mean there’s no way to pause the game!? On top of that, a large chunk of the game’s going to be…first-person view. Nah, getting facefuls of icky two-human-headed legless gorilla baby in first-person view with no way to pause the sonofabitch is gonna have me sleeping reeeeeal well while I’m playing this thing.
