Katie Plays Stuff: Silent Hill, Part 1

So, I’ve decided I’m going to try something new. Instead of posting game reviews (at least for now), I’m going to focus my gaming posts more on writing posts about games that are already pretty well-established, or that I just like for some reason. These will be more like analyses than game reviews, and will go under the Katie Play Stuff tag (which I used to use for game reviews, but I think it fits stuff like this more).

I’ve decided to start with one of my absolute favorite horror games: Silent Hill. Naturally, there will be spoilers (as much as one can be said to spoil an almost 20 year old video game, anyway). Also, there are a number of uncomfortable themes, such as abuse and the loss of a child (not to mention a metric fuckton of blood and random corpses), so if that kind of thing bothers you, you might want to sit this one out.

They aren’t kidding.

I’m going to split this up, otherwise the post will get ridiculously long, so I’m going to start with a summary of the game’s plot. As can be expected, there will be spoilers after this point (as much as one can spoil a popular, almost 20-year-old game), so I would recommend tracking and playing the game first if you can.

A bit of housekeeping first: I have obtained a new patron, Justin Grays! Thanks Justin! If you look at the right side of the page, you will see a link to his site under “blogroll.” Also, if you enjoy this blog, and would like to throw some money at me, consider donating to my Patreon.

That out of the way, besides my typical spoiler warning I would also like to warn you that this is probably the most gruesome episode of Star Trek I’ve ever seen in my entire life. If you’re a bit squeamish, you may want to sit parts of this one out (though I probably won’t show too much of it in the actual images, though there will be descriptions).

Star Trek: Discovery Recaps-“The Vulcan Hello”

Star Trek: Discovery premiered its last two episodes last Sunday, to the excitement of many (including myself). This is the first Star Trek TV series to air since Enterprise was cancelled in 2005. So far it seems to be pretty well received.

I thought about it and decided to recap the episodes as they come out because, let’s face it: at the rate I’m getting my other Star Trek recaps out, it could be years before I got to this series. Plus I really, really just want to talk about it.

So, we begin with this episode, entitled “The Vulcan Hello.” Just as a warning, I’m going over the entire episode under the cut, so spoilers abound.

One brief note before getting into this episode: “The Menagerie” recycles pretty much the entirety of the pilot episode, “The Cage.” Since I’ve already written a post on that episode, I’m not going to go into too much detail about those portions. If you would like to, you can read my recap of “The Cage” here.

Now, on to the episode.
