midwinter : (18 August 2017 - 04:07 PM) I think it's because people are starting to talk about Halloween and Yuletide, so I'm getting into that end-of-the-year frame of mind
Hex : (19 August 2017 - 02:55 PM) I could set this year's up soon if you'd like?  I was thinking of starting earlier as well.   :icon_tengai:
midwinter : (19 August 2017 - 09:37 PM) Oh man, my heart is saying yes but my head is saying, how much earlier are we talking? Cause I think even starting in November we had people sign up and then forget it was a thing
Rezz : (19 August 2017 - 10:24 PM) (I'm game for whenever)
Eisenalex : (19 August 2017 - 11:43 PM) Oh, christmas exchange. I'd like to participate, too.
Eisenalex : (19 August 2017 - 11:48 PM) and since I now "lost" my job, I'll have more time to actually work on stuff, lol.
Eisenalex : (20 August 2017 - 01:03 AM) Is anything wrong with the forum? Because my browser keeps giving me warnings about it for quite a while now.
midwinter : (20 August 2017 - 10:08 AM) I'm not sure :\ I haven't been getting warnings, and I think it might be because the forum software is out of date
midwinter : (20 August 2017 - 10:08 AM) but the main site did get hacked once, so idk
Hex : (20 August 2017 - 10:21 AM) I think we could be okay if we set up the sidebar to promote the exchange, so people won't forget.  I could post the sign up topic today if you guys like?
Eisenalex : (20 August 2017 - 10:22 AM) Ah, ok. I sent the FB page a message a while ago but didn't get a response, so I thought I could just give it a try without it being too dangerous for me, lol.
Hex : (20 August 2017 - 07:33 PM) Or not.
Rezz : (20 August 2017 - 09:23 PM) Or not
midwinter : (22 August 2017 - 12:59 PM) Whoa, I just heard Yashuu say "You might as well give up" to Kei - I don't think I've ever heard that before
midwinter : (22 August 2017 - 01:00 PM) You tell him, Ms Kuze
midwinter : (22 August 2017 - 01:42 PM) Ohhhh
midwinter : (22 August 2017 - 01:42 PM) Okay, Miku's first crawlspace, the bodies at the back behind the gratings are the bodies in the entrance to the Bell Hallway
midwinter : (22 August 2017 - 01:43 PM) That is cool, I never realised that before
Hex : (22 August 2017 - 05:16 PM) :o !
Eisenalex : (23 August 2017 - 03:20 PM) The Dreadout games are currently in the lowest tier of the Humble Bundle, if anybody here is interested.

Me personally while I love the content of the photograph endings (happy endings for the win) I can't stand that they are CG stills and not a full cutscene.  It feels like a cheap cop out to me.  What do you all think?  And which game suffers the most from the photograph ending?  I'd say 3 since the photograph ending in that game is canon.

Agreed. I'm glad the new endings in the wiimake of the 2nd game were full cg. At first I thought photograph endings sort of fit the game since the camera is such a big part... But they do feel like a cop out. They could at least show super short cg clips instead of a still frame. I think having photographs in the ending is fine while the credits are rolling. For example, your best photos from that playthrough or something!

Personally I like Photographs Endings, I think they give us more information about the characters' fate,

and allow us to find theories about the end and the future of the characters =)

I think 1's Xbox ending is worse off with it being one of the new additions and it's just...pictures.  I find them pretty off-putting in general for how happy and nonsensical they tend to be, but it's mainly a result of laziness on their part.  I do like MacabrelleEnvy's idea of your best photos in the credits, though.

I saw the Photograph Ending for 3, and while I still would have preferred full cutscenes, I feel like it was handled well for what it was. The first game, on the other hand... Yeah, no. I saw it for the first time last night and it felt awful. They didn't even bother to keep the part where 

but just awkwardly cut partway through the original ending to insert the photos. It felt choppy and weird, whereas in FF3 the execution had decent flow.

Such order in the midst of chaos makes me woozy and disoriented.
