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

It's strange, right? So many people go to the mountain with no intention of killing themselves but end up dying anyway; Fuyuhi and Haruka went with the express purpose of killing themselves, but survived, and were allowed to leave the mountain. Does anyone have any theories about why? (Apart from "game plot required it.")

 

I can think of two possible reasons. It might have been partly about unresolved feelings - Fuyuhi still wanted to confess, even if Haruka already knew how she felt, and maybe deep down they wanted to die together as more of a lovers' suicide, rather than as part of a group. Or maybe it's about Haruka and her affinity with the maidens; Chiaki was influenced by the Isame, so you'd think the whole group would have died in the same way, but Haruka had greater potential, and either hadn't reached the point where she could return to the water yet, or by Glancing the others as they died, upgraded herself to Box-Class Maiden and was therefore too valuable to be allowed to drown in a lake. That doesn't really explain Fuyuhi, though.

 

I'd love to hear if anyone else has any ideas!

Couldn't it be just by simple chance?  If I recall correctly the Umbrella lady had been taking flowers up the mountain and praying there for a while before she ended up dying.  At least that's how it sounded from her cutscene.

I'm leaning towards option two.  Maybe it has something to do with the closeness to death creating a resistance to it thing?  Fuyuhi was already determined to die with Haruka, but the others were seemingly just possessed/influenced.
