Looks like our wallets won’t be taking too savage a beating this week, as only one truly horrific release can be verified.

Silent Hill: Homecoming (Xbox 360/PS3/PC) – The fifth installment (technically) in Konami’s legendary horror series sees the development baton passed to American company Double Helix Games. Seeing as how the Japanese developers at Konami created their own translation of American horror, with influences ranging from Jacob’s Ladder to David Lynch, isn’t that a bit like translating from French to Spanish back into French again?
