Kouta Koikawa : (05 September 2017 - 01:26 PM) I remember how this forum used to be active. That was many years ago. We need a new game to make the forum active again.
yamibito : (08 September 2017 - 11:29 AM) How about Fatal Frame Card Game?
yamibito : (08 September 2017 - 11:35 AM) Couldn't find anything about it here
yamibito : (08 September 2017 - 11:36 AM) But it exist, quite long

Eisenalex : (08 September 2017 - 09:05 PM) That card game looks so cool!
Rezz : (08 September 2017 - 09:46 PM) I c u, 2017 exchange
Eisenalex : (08 September 2017 - 10:11 PM) when do the exchanges usually start?
midwinter : (09 September 2017 - 02:28 PM) It varies, but usually around November
midwinter : (09 September 2017 - 02:28 PM) Last year started very late because I wasn't planning to run it but then changed my mind
midwinter : (09 September 2017 - 02:36 PM) Maybe will be earlier this year :3c
midwinter : (09 September 2017 - 02:52 PM) (To be clear, I didn't set up the forum this time, I'm assuming Hex did. So thank you, Hex!)
Eisenalex : (11 September 2017 - 10:39 PM) There's a Nintendo Direct coming.
Eisenalex : (11 September 2017 - 10:39 PM) I'm not holding my breath for it but a teaser for a new FF would be nice.
midwinter : (12 September 2017 - 08:39 PM) It would
midwinter : (12 September 2017 - 08:39 PM) It's happening pretty late at night here, so I doubt I'll stay up and watch it, but I'd be happy to wake up to news
Eisenalex : (13 September 2017 - 08:54 AM) Same for me. At least KT once stated that they have a little something in the works for the Switch and I doubt it'll only be FE: Warriors.
Eisenalex : (13 September 2017 - 10:57 PM) Now that was kinda disappointing. Didn't expect Doom and Wolfenstein. As expected, no FF news, unfortunately. I'm surprised that we didn't get a Smash 4 port announced or any news on Travis Strikes Back.
GreekShadow : (24 September 2017 - 01:19 PM) Did I loose something?Or TGS was too poor this year?Almost nothing new was announced for anything?

So, I never did really figure out the pupose of the fishtank room in regards to how that would work in a traditional Japanese home. Did the Japanese actually have attached rooms or sheds that housed fisheries? At least, I assume that's what a "Fishtank room" is, a kind of hatchery/fishery type place. It just seems kind of...odd. I've never come across drawings or descriptions of such buildings/rooms when reading about Japanese architechture. I guess I'm just wondering if rooms like this really would have existed or if it's main function was for the dripping blood/ghost scare. Any info on this would be awesome.

I don't know how "historically accurate" it is, but it's basically just a kind of... well, giant fishtank, where you would store living fish in water, presumably to stop them spoiling before you get around to eating them, kind of like the giant water-filled tanks they have on fishing boats. But in a house. I guess it's possible, since they live up in the mountains in a kind of remote area, and they probably can't just go fishing whenever they like, and the mountains don't seem terribly friendly to farming, especially with the snowy winters... And it also makes a great place to have dripping water and echoes and all that great stuff.
