Strobe lighting and the scent of musty old books rises from within the fog...
midwinter : (08 November 2017 - 03:29 PM) Ok, playing with headphones is definitely superior
midwinter : (08 November 2017 - 03:31 PM) I knew the music in Rei's house changed after Miku's chapters start but I never noticed it has these little bumps and rustles that make it sound like something's moving in the house
midwinter : (08 November 2017 - 05:41 PM) also there is more ghost talk during Kei's phone call!
midwinter : (08 November 2017 - 05:41 PM) i couldn't hear most of it, though, I need to listen again
Hex : (08 November 2017 - 06:12 PM) Yesss, headphones.  I think you can hear doors being closed in Rei's house too.
Hex : (09 November 2017 - 01:03 PM) Damn, I didn't know they were closing down the miiverse until too late.  My screenshots.  :(
midwinter : (09 November 2017 - 01:40 PM) Argh, no backups? That sucks :(
Hex : (09 November 2017 - 01:48 PM) On the bright side, I still have an album full of pretty scenery and Hisoka looking confused.
AnimalLover4... : (10 November 2017 - 05:59 AM) Nintendo shouldn't have shut down Miiverse.
AnimalLover4... : (10 November 2017 - 05:59 AM) People loved it.
AnimalLover4... : (10 November 2017 - 05:59 AM) And they should have incorporated it onto the Switch.
Hex : (12 November 2017 - 12:51 AM) Finally finished TEW2, t'was excellent.
GreekShadow : (12 November 2017 - 05:14 AM) I'm glad you enjoed it Hex!How was it comparing to the first one though(,which i personally disliked)?
Hex : (12 November 2017 - 12:11 PM) I've only played the first for a few hours (didn't like it much either), but it was a big improvement.  The gameplay is fun, the stealth works a lot better, the open world map isn't too big but there's sidequests (one with a cool ghost lady!) and some interesting things to do.
Hex : (12 November 2017 - 12:17 PM) I was really impressed with the story since it was one of the things that put me off the first. The last 20 minutes were so good, definitely one of the best endings I've seen in awhile.
Daz Hinasaki : (12 November 2017 - 07:17 PM) Hey guys I'm finishing fatal frame 1 on my twitch channel tonight! :) love you to join me https://www.twitch.tv/chunzbunz
GreekShadow : (13 November 2017 - 05:36 AM) oh sounds cool thank you hex!And for me also the story of the first one put me off,glad the second one is better
Hex : (16 November 2017 - 12:01 PM) TIL: ghost marriage is actually practiced in China.   :staffsan:
Rheo : (16 November 2017 - 12:13 PM) O_O
Rheo : (16 November 2017 - 12:13 PM) oh yeah there's a local movie here called The Ghost Bride and the actress playing that is half-Chinese

Which do you think is best suited as the Crimson Butterfly theme song?  Does one fit the story or a certain character better?

 

I have to go with Kurenai, but it is close.  The subdued screech of the guitar in the background makes me feel sad, like something's coming to an end, but also hopeful, like the daybreak atop Misono Hill.  Chou is so powerful, but it doesn't get me in the feels quite the same way.

I had to listen to them both a few more times to answer this. Oh, the hardship! :P

 

Even though I prefer Kurenai myself, I think Chou fits the game better. Maybe it's just the nostalgia talking, but that rising intro always gets me, and the way the violins play sounds like a butterfly's wings. Plus you get that awesome crescendo right at the moment when the camera pans up to show the sunrise. The bells and drums (or whatever they are) at the very beginning start off sounding like part of the game too - they must have realised that, because they tacked them on to the front of Kurenai in DCB, but I don't think they fit it quite as well.

 

These are good songs. ;-;

I love them both equally, it's so hard to choose! That said, I feel the same as Mid in that I think Chou fits the ending cutscene better, the percussion and ascending string intro that sort of sighs into the fluttery violins and guitars is just so perfect.

 

But still, on their own terms outside of the game I find it impossible to choose between them  :staffsan:

^  I agree.

 

It's really hard to choose, but Chou sounds better in the game's ending than Kurenai. But outside of the game I really like to listen both of them~

insanely hard to chose lol. Love them both. Both represent the game. I love Chou's cowbell? in the beginning as the butterflies fly away from the abyss. And I love the guitar solo in Kurenai.

I must say that the songs have got two different meanings:

Chou talks about Mayu who can fly like a butterfly, while Kurenai talks about Mio who can't fly and she can't reunite with her sister. So it's very difficult to decide...

I must say that I love both.
