Konami's new Silent Hill Downpour trailer is lengthy and heavy on story content. Given just how much is shown here, I'm going to throw the SPOILER ALERT onto this video. If you don't mind seeing several plot points as well as a handful of cool "this town is messed up" gameplay moments, dive right in. This trailer does make protagonist Murphy Pendleton seem like one of the series' strongest leads. I especially like the build up of "Revenge is a long, treacherous road, Mr. Pendleton. Where do you suppose it ends?"

As I'm sure you've noticed by now, the trailer also plays out like a Korn music video. I'm not a huge fan of Korn, but the song fits nicely. Is it just me or are you also getting a strong Alan Wake vibe from this game?
