Strobe lighting and the scent of musty old books rises from within the fog...
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
Hex : (21 November 2017 - 07:58 PM) Do you ever start typing and find yourself wondering, "when did this become a novel?"
AnimalLover4... : (21 November 2017 - 10:22 PM) Eiji Otsuka.
Hex : (21 November 2017 - 11:46 PM) Where?   :icon_lordhimuro:
AnimalLover4... : (22 November 2017 - 06:19 AM) LOL

I've been thinking about this since I played the fifth one and I didn't remember if there was already a topic for it or not.

They mentioned that Rei kind of used it on Reika in the end of the third one, but haven't they kind of been doing that since the first one? One of the characters touches something (or someone) and they see something spooky.

It wasn't really something new was it? Or am I missing something?

It wasn’t something new but it wasn’t part of the gameplay until the Fatal Frame 5

Pretty much what Kenshin said.  The context is a little different though; before they were just visions given to psychic people, now it's a kind of soul-reading you can do to soothe the dying.

It's a bit different between the two though.  Sometimes it isn't used to soothe at all which implies they are two different things.

Yeah, I didn't mean to imply they're the same.  Visions were always a thing but now there's different kinds.

I think there are a few things in the series like this. They have a few instances in the earlier games, but become an actual game "mechanic" in the later games. For example, in the first two games there are a few parts where a cutscene will show the character slowly opening a cupboard/door/curtain and then a ghost/jumpscare happens. Then in the wii versions it becomes a mechanic to "peek" in certain spots and sometimes it's nothing and sometimes there's a ghost.
