Siren: Blood Curse On Blu-Ray Temporarily Cheaper Than The Digital Download

By Spencer . January 7, 2009 . 6:36am

Sony is only releasing the PlayStation 3 remake of Siren as an episodic PlayStation Network game in North America. A cautious move, but somewhat reasonable since Siren didn’t reach top the charts when it was a PlayStation 2 game. Sony Computer Entertainment America even passed on Siren 2 regardless of an existing English translation completed […]

How to beat Siren

By Spencer . April 18, 2008 . 2:43pm

The news about Siren: New Translation sounded great until I remembered how frustrating Siren was on the PlayStation 2. Sightjacking was a neat gameplay mechanic and the Shibito were frightful looking creatures. However, they were too powerful with persistent reanimation. Siren was really about sneaking around, not ghoul hunting. I didn’t beat it. I’m not […]
