I just finished playing Silent Hill 2 – a fantastic and very disturbing game, though not quite as satisfying as the original. You'll see from my review, posted next week, that I still highly recommend it.

The delay of several high-profile games into October has, of course, thrown my intended review schedule into chaos. Neither Spider-Man 2 nor Soul Reaver 2 has yet hit the shelves, as originally expected, leaving them to compete with Castlevania Chronicles, Devil May Cry, and possibly Dragon Warrior VII and Spy Hunter for space on Gamebits. I've noticed PR firms tend to be falling behind in shipping review copies, so that we don't get our hands on games until a week or two after their consumer release, which does us little good. It'll be interesting to see if this trend continues into the all-important holiday season.
