Eisenalex : (18 June 2017 - 04:07 PM) Momodora is a doujin-game-series from japan, they're all done in a metroidvania-style. some are more linear than others.
Eisenalex : (18 June 2017 - 04:08 PM) The current one (Momodora: Reveries under the moonlight) is, regarding tone, atmosphere and gameplay, kind of a mash-up of castlevania, metroid and souls-like games, especially the gothic style of bloodborne.
Eisenalex : (18 June 2017 - 04:09 PM) It's not a perfect gme by any means but I had a lot of fun with it.
Eisenalex : (18 June 2017 - 04:09 PM) *game
Kouta Koikawa : (18 June 2017 - 04:12 PM) Alright, I see. I like the Metroidvania concept and the gothic style. I'm actually pretty interested in the new game from the former Castlevania developers. Ritual of Blood or whatever it's called. The trailer looked pretty awesome. It's like Symphony of the Night but better looking.
Eisenalex : (18 June 2017 - 04:13 PM) Bloodstained: Ritual of the night. Yeah, I'm looking forward to it, too.
Kouta Koikawa : (18 June 2017 - 04:16 PM) Yes, that's the name. Looks good. It's like those old Castlevania games. Shame that Konami gave up on Castlevania and Silent Hill too. They used to be such a great developer.
Eisenalex : (18 June 2017 - 04:24 PM) Yeah, used to. I didn't like the LoS-Castlevanias anyway, so it's not too bad for me.
Kouta Koikawa : (18 June 2017 - 04:32 PM) LoS was decent but I disliked the gameplay rhythm. It was like God of War. You either fight or do platforming. I like how in old Castlevania games you do both at the same time. This is present even in games like Castlevania 64 but LoS removed that element.
Eisenalex : (18 June 2017 - 04:38 PM) Castlevania 64 is in my opinion much better than people say. It is, in fact, my favourite 3D castlevania.
Eisenalex : (18 June 2017 - 04:39 PM) LoS would have been decent if it weren't called "Castlevania".
Eisenalex : (18 June 2017 - 04:39 PM) I'll have to go now. See you!
Kouta Koikawa : (18 June 2017 - 04:43 PM) Sure, see you around!
Kouta Koikawa : (18 June 2017 - 04:45 PM) And I agree about Castlevania 64. For the most part it's how a 3D Castlevania should be.
Rheo : (22 June 2017 - 05:46 PM) I agree with the Castlevania 64 part XD
Rheo : (22 June 2017 - 05:47 PM) Also looking forward to Bloodstained :3
Eisenalex : (22 June 2017 - 08:01 PM) I think a lot of hate towards Castlevania 64 stems from people blindly believing the AVGN-Video about it without having played it themselves.
Cursed Lemon : (23 June 2017 - 08:10 AM) Ehh, the controls for the N64 Castlevania games are some of the worst I've experienced in games that are supposed to be high production value. The soundtracks, however, blow other Castlevania games clear out of the water.
Rheo : (24 June 2017 - 05:10 AM) Well yeah, that's why o.o My bf said it's one of the worst because of the controls. Even though I'm 50-50 about it. It's just that I was fine with it all along until then :<
Rheo : (24 June 2017 - 05:11 AM) Sometimes it wasn't good for me too lol

Another old re-post I did in the old forum. :)
 
I want to talk about "Warped Twins" photo:
 
Blurtwins.jpg
 
 
Sae wrote that "My face looked strange, but it was interesting to see."
 
 
But look at Yae's hairstyle. This hairstyle (with a piece of trimmed fringe) is of Sae, not Yae. I noticed from the other photos their:

Is Yae's face that is warped.
 
This may have been only a mistake or not. But if it is common for the twins, who have to be sacrificed, have their face warped in the pictures, then why does this never happen with Mayu?
 
 
 
 
Another strange photo:
 
Tachibanafamily.jpg
 
 
First, neither twin has a warped face. Besides, who made this picture? It could not have been Sejiro, because he came after the ritual of the Tachibana.
 
Sae describes the camera obscura as a special and interesting box, which means that this was not something normal in the village. It may have been simply an outsider who can not show this to the Kurosawa twins. It can also be a normal camera, which explains why none of the twins seems to have something abnormal like "Sae."
 
 
What do you think?

Ahh, so it was you who posted this the first time! We had a thread with some discussion about this a few years ago too - it seems like the creators got Sae and Yae mixed up sometimes.

 

Now you mention it, it is interesting that the same effect never shows up with Mayu, although she does get the hands in the Great Hall. I always thought the distortion was a mark of Sae being the sacrifice, because it's kind of visually similar to the headless twin on the deities statues, but I suppose you could also theorise that it's some kind of sign of the Repentance to come. Or maybe you could say that the photos aren't just about the subject but about who's holding the camera, so possibly it would only have appeared when Seijiro was taking the picture, since he and Sae kind of have a shared horrible fate awaiting them.

 

Good point about the Tachibanas photo, too. There's a similar question about who took the White-Haired Boy photo - that's not one Mio takes, she finds it lying in the cell, but who could have taken a picture of Itsuki trapped in the storehouse? Maybe those are just images that appeared in photos of different subjects. I quite like the idea of Ryozo stealing borrowing the camera and taking a couple of random pictures that end up showing Itsuki because he's worried about him.

Funny. I never thought that was a mistake. I thought Sae just commented on her face looking weird 'cause it was possibly the first time she had her photo taken. When we look in mirrors, we actually see a reverse-image of ourselves, which is why often people will think they look 'weird' in photos. I know I do.

 

I always assumed that Yae's face was warped/scratched out due to Sae's resentment towards her sister.
