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

I'm posting this here instead of Deep Crimson Butterfly because she was originally going to be in the PS2 game, and the character she ended up becoming is incompatible with the original vision for her.

 

Could the original concept for Kureha (A warning for Mio as an echo to what she will become if she fails and would become in one of the scrapped endings) have still worked in the story with Itsuki still having the role that he does?  They said that Kureha's concept became Itsuki's character but it sounds like she wouldn't have played the same role that he did.  Could the story have still worked if she was include as she was conceptualized, while still keeping Itsuki and his impact on the storyline in the game?

Do you mean, could they have worked simultaneously?  I don't think so.  Mio's interactions with both of them are important for their reveals later on, so having two white-haired Remainings encourage you throughout the game would be repetitive.  If you were asking which suits the game better, I would say Itsuki for having Ryozo return, the escape plot and actually knowing Yae and Sae for the misnaming mindscrew and angst later on.   

 

The more I think about it, the timey-wimey twist with Mio doesn't do Kureha's current character any justice.  I much prefer she be her own independent character with the new lore and mind-reading than stuck on her tod waiting to make sense in a reveal you might not get.   :P

Yeah, I meant as the original concept for Kureha fitting into the story alongside Itsuki.

 

In that case though...gosh dang it why didn't she get a bigger role in DCB.

Their intention initially was to keep her story entirely within side material, so I think we got lucky.  Like everything else, the additions were bare bones.
