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

Just a thought I had actually,what if the further you went into the Manor of Sleep(=later chapters) the more dreamy it would get?You know like the Manor getting more disorted,some doors leading to diferrent rooms,some rooms being upside/down or totally weirdly diferrent than before,some dolls starting talking to you,ghosts act weirder,snow being something diferrent,I don't know you get the point and those are some really small changes I just thought of,the whole scenery could start getting really creepy and disorted/f*cked up.

 

Ofcourse if that happened,especially the later part of the game would kinda have to change a lot,but it would be interesting if you think about it,a more paranoid/disorted Fatal Frame game,and since it was taking place in a dream,the possibillities were so big.Don't get me wrong,the simplicity of the manor of Sleep makes it have the specific cold/dark/lonely/dreamy atmosphere which we all love but how would you feel if it was more...disorted in general.

 

Just a small note to avoid hurting feelings :P ,Its not a "FF3 would be way better if it was more paranoid" post,I know that we all love FF3 as it is but since I had that thought I would like to listen to your opinions!

I might have found that really interesting. One of my favorite moments in the original Silent Hill was Nowhere, which had a design set up like how our brains put things together in to dreams- some things are made up, others are fragments of our memories, and it was all jumbled together like a puzzle. 

 

In Fatal Frame III's case they could have made certain "weirdness" changes based on which character you were currently controlling. Maybe like Miku seeing ropes appearing in places they weren't before, stuff like that. 

 

I might hate it in practice, but the idea of walking through a door and the room you enter suddenly being upside when it wasn't before sounds kind of cool.  :lol:


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

I would have really liked this too! I'm always up for changing environments, though I expect they're a lot of work. I especially like Chrysalis's idea of having it be character-based. I've always thought it was a bit of a missed opportunity that all the characters see the Manor of Sleep in much the same way. I don't think I'd want huge changes, especially not to the layout (it's already enough of a maze) but subtle stuff like the changes in Rei's house would have been great. Or maybe if you go without a purifying light for too long, things start getting more and more distorted?

 

Ooh, and you know in Mission Mode, there's a glitch where the carpenters have very stretched-out mouths, and Stroller Grandma's hands are about three feet long? If they could have brought those kinds of ghost distortions into the main game, especially the later chapters, it would have been awesome. It was so freaky the first time I played Mission Mode and saw that weirdness.

i very much agree, having it become more distorted sounds like a fun way to mess with you


you brought this upon yourself mortal now you learn the way of darkness

Sounds a little similar to Eternal Darkness' sanity effects. I think that would be really cool, and introducing some randomness like limb length, etc. would make it pretty spooky
