GreekShadow : (12 October 2017 - 02:45 PM) I might replay FF3.Not sure if I should start a brand new playthrough or one with my unlockes though hmmm.I have years to play FF3 ;_;

asagi : (12 October 2017 - 04:37 PM) I want to replay the games but mom threw the ps3 out of the window :zca rei:
Eisenalex : (12 October 2017 - 11:16 PM) Why would she do that?
Eisenalex : (14 October 2017 - 11:30 AM) I just learned that there's apparently a manga based on Siren made by Junji Ito.
Hex : (15 October 2017 - 01:11 PM) If it's the one I'm thinking of, it's unsurprisingly pretty gross.
Eisenalex : (15 October 2017 - 02:20 PM) It's Junji Ito. Of course it gets either super weird or gross, lol.
NightmarePic... : (15 October 2017 - 03:15 PM) And me being curious I had to look it up. Yup definitely gross XD
Eisenalex : (15 October 2017 - 05:17 PM) Did you think it was that bad? I enjoy Ito's stuff a lot.
NightmarePic... : (15 October 2017 - 05:32 PM) Meh.. It wasn't all that bad. Just more unsettling than "gross". Those weird worm girls or whatever are way worse *cringes*
Eisenalex : (15 October 2017 - 05:41 PM) I'm not sure what you mean by "worm girls". He did a couple of slug-transformations, though.
NightmarePic... : (16 October 2017 - 11:02 PM) That was it.. yup lol
Hex : (17 October 2017 - 05:33 PM) My new washing machine makes jingles whenever it's finished like an ice cream van.
NightmarePic... : (17 October 2017 - 06:12 PM) I... don't think that's good Hex.. You might want to check what's in there other than clothes lol
Kouta Koikawa : (17 October 2017 - 06:28 PM) Maybe they come with entertaining sound effects these days.
midwinter : (17 October 2017 - 07:15 PM) A lot of the new ones are supposed to chime to let you know when the cycle is done
midwinter : (17 October 2017 - 07:16 PM) Mine does, at least
Eisenalex : (17 October 2017 - 09:59 PM) The future is now.

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.
