Butterflychaser : (12 April 2018 - 11:53 PM) I agree- I much prefer the pre 4 set out of the games, though it's probably nostalgia in my personal case
Butterflychaser : (12 April 2018 - 11:53 PM) Oh well, I'm just glad the series is still alive and this forum is too...kinda. It's nice coming here from time to time
PikaLink91 : (13 April 2018 - 07:27 AM) I had honestly hoped for a bit more activity, oh well, guess I am just late to the party...
Hex : (19 April 2018 - 08:04 PM) Will anyone be replaying 4 for its 10th anniversary in July?   :icon_ruka:
PikaLink91 : (19 April 2018 - 09:21 PM) I was actually thinking about replaying it tonight. Is my favorite afterall.
midwinter : (19 April 2018 - 09:54 PM) I'll definitely be doing that at some point - I still need to get proper quality costume images for the wiki
Butterflychaser : (22 April 2018 - 02:55 PM) I will be!
EternalSinger : (29 April 2018 - 06:54 PM) I will be! Much excitement.
GregZerO : (01 May 2018 - 08:09 AM) I finally ordered RE7 yesterday since it got a huge price drop and I'm looking forward to it!
Hex : (01 May 2018 - 10:08 AM) *excitement levels rise*  I hope you enjoy it!   :icon_tengai:
Hex : (01 May 2018 - 10:09 AM) Nice to see FF4 love too.  <3
GregZerO : (07 May 2018 - 09:52 PM) my first impressissions is that RE7 is great
GregZerO : (07 May 2018 - 09:54 PM) was afraid that it might feel a bit too much outlast
GregZerO : (07 May 2018 - 09:54 PM) (and i didnt enjoy outlast 2 at all)
GregZerO : (07 May 2018 - 09:55 PM) but its great,feels like i'm playng REmake/REZero
GregZerO : (07 May 2018 - 09:57 PM) i m pretty early in the game though, but i enjoy it a lot
Chou : (17 May 2018 - 04:14 PM) Speaking of FF4, I had to redo my patch for the translation for my Wii... And started it up from scratch. I think I had only made it halfway through before
Chou : (18 May 2018 - 02:10 PM) I can't believe it's been 10 years!  For the anniversary, do we want to start a thread for everyone wanting to play through and relive the nostalgia? (or play through the first time because i never completed it before, haha :x )
midwinter : (18 May 2018 - 04:39 PM) that would be a good idea!

3's camera is weird.  It's broken, but appears functionable in the dreams of our protagonists.  Film materialises inside it in the real world of images it couldn't capture properly in the dream.  It also doesn't seem like an accident our characters stumble onto it.

 

Why do you guys think that is?  Is it the result of coming into contact with one in the real world, or does anyone in the dream have an equal chance of encountering it?  I'm leaning towards the former, but I had a side theory that Rei "seeing" Miku and Kei's dreams is what gives them the camera, since they both sound like they'd been dreaming of the Manor before her but it's only then they find it.

 

Does anyone know why some images need to be developed too?  It's a Rei-specific thing so I thought it might be something to do with her being the priestess, but I've got nothing.  Developing the pictures = making the tattoo?  idk.

I think you're right on track with Miku and Kei. It must be their connection to Rei and finding the camera irl that causes it to manifest in their dreams.

As far as why the musty film appears for Rei I assume it has to do with her role as a freelance photographer. Maybe her own spiritual power is resonating in a certain way with the camera that causes it to give her the extra photographs?

I've always been under the impression that Miku didn't start dreaming about the manor until after Rei lost Yuu.  Seeing her friend sink into despair caused her to look back on her feelings of being unable to convince Mafuyu to leave Himuro Mansion and caused her to start dreaming about the manor shortly after Rei does.  Given that it's been two years since Mafuyu's death and she hasn't succumbed to the tattoo curse it leads me to think that she doesn't start dreaming about it till after Rei does. 

 

Given all that Miku has been through and how she likely wanted to honor his sacrifice after he chose it she may have made peace with it on a surface level but Rei's situation with Yuu causes that wound to re-open and makes her begin to feel guilty for surviving when he didn't.  In the ending of 1 notice how she starts walking towards Mafuyu to try to convince him to change his mind but she gets teleported out of the mansion (Only reason I can think that she'd wake up in the ending) after the ceiling caves in on himself.  She probably feels guilty because she thinks she didn't try hard enough to convince him to leave with her.  The only reason that she doesn't start dreaming of the manor before now is because of the speech Mafuyu gives her at the end of the game.

That was largely my impression as well, that Miku didn't start dreaming about the manor until after Rei did. Or at least she wasn't dreaming in the sense of wandering the manor before that point, but rather more normal guilt dreams? I don't know, that is just how I always took it.

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

That's what I think happened too.  When I say before, I mean maybe a few days or weeks before Rei, but it makes sense if it was right after the shrine too.  Miku's the first to succumb so I thought that might indicate she was the first to experience it.
