Last week, the Operation Rainfall Retro Commercial Research Team (in other words, me) took a look at some of the commercials of a couple of older Resident Evil games. In this week’s Retro Wrap-Up, we’ll be taking a look at the commercials for Silent Hills 1-4.

Yeah, I know it’s not an English commercial, but I couldn’t find any English commercials for the first Silent Hill. I’m still calling it a Retro Wrap-Up though ‘cos I found English commercials for the other three games. BOW DOWN TO MY SUPERIOR LOGIC!

By the way, you guys know about Yahtzee from Zero Punctuation, right? Well, he made a music video of sorts using Silent Hill 4: The Room. Consider this an extra little treat for you.

Here are the highlights of this past week.

Did you know that you could win a copy of Orgarhythm on our site? Hit up the contest page for more details. The contest ends October 31st, so act fast!

Two Brothers is coming to the Wii U’s eShop sometime in 2013.

Nintendo of America streamed a Nintendo Direct recently that announced a good amount of news, including showing us trailers for Fire Emblem: Awakening and Animal Crossing: New Leaf.

Star Citizen reaches its $2 million crowdfunding goal! Huzzah!

Samuel Prezelski reviews Resident Evil 6 for the PS3 and Xbox 360, Richard Ross reviews Orgarhythm for the PlayStation Vita, and James Best reviews Glory of Heracles for the Nintendo DS. In addition, Jeff Neuenschwander gives us a second opinion on the game.

Jeff Neuenschwander also took a look at Castlevania for the NES in this month’s Does It Hold Up.

We take a look at Aksys Games, the guys behind BlazBlue, Guilty Gear, Zero Escape, and other series in our Publisher Spotlight.

Shadowgate, a point-and-click adventure game for the NES, is planned to be remade with KickStarter support.  Also on Kickstarter, the Quest for Glory devs are looking to fund their newest game, Hero-U: Rogue to Redemption.

Tales of Hearts R, a remake of Tales of Hearts for the DS, has been announced for the PlayStation Vita.

The World Ends With You gets a sequel of sorts in the form of Live Remix, among other things.

Heroes of Ruin probably isn’t going to get a sequel made for it. We take a look at some of the reasons why that might be.

Finally, Justin Graham decides to defend the always-controversial Other M.
