midwinter : (07 October 2018 - 03:32 PM) I heard the rumour about Suda51 too
midwinter : (07 October 2018 - 03:33 PM) I have my doubts that he'd work on another Fatal Frame game, it sounds like FF4 was chaos and he doesn't really do horror anyway
Emi : (07 October 2018 - 03:47 PM) *nods* Yeah
Emi : (07 October 2018 - 03:55 PM) ugh... Okay. Well, I got the keycaptcha in, but it isn't working.
Emi : (07 October 2018 - 03:57 PM) AND... I broke it. *headdesk*
Emi : (07 October 2018 - 04:05 PM) and I fixed it.
Emi : (07 October 2018 - 04:05 PM) yay
Yashuu : (07 October 2018 - 07:01 PM) he had that interview too where he said he didnt like how shibata tries to recreate real ghost experiences, so i doubt he'd return  :icon_fallenwoman:
Yashuu : (07 October 2018 - 07:01 PM) i'd like him to though, ff4 was >>>
Yashuu : (07 October 2018 - 08:24 PM) a mess but still >>>>
Emi : (07 October 2018 - 09:29 PM) True. There were parts of 4 that I thought were really cool.
Cursed Lemon : (08 October 2018 - 01:29 AM) FF4 was awesome in terms of lore and atmosphere.
ItsukiFace : (08 October 2018 - 07:50 PM) Something ultra wicked, this way comes.
ナガクラ : (09 October 2018 - 06:08 AM) I like the atmosphere of 4
Butterflychaser : (09 October 2018 - 02:16 PM) 4 really was the bees knees. Managed to stray from several elements of the original series whilst retaining the overall feel
Emi : (09 October 2018 - 04:05 PM) agreed. I really loved the playable character twist too.
Chou : (09 October 2018 - 04:13 PM) 4 has honestly taken the top spot from 2 for me, as my #1 fave
Chou : (09 October 2018 - 04:14 PM) Also i like that the bot account is Baymax hahaha
ItsukiFace : (11 October 2018 - 02:53 AM) Hi, Chou. It's nice to see you here. ☺️

When I got to the Shrine on the Water for the first time and saw Hisoka turn into a ghost I seriously thought she had died.  Nothing about the transition made it seem like this wasn't her vengeful spirit attacking Yuuri.  The fact that she had a completely different design from the other large floating spirits made me so certain she was dead and broke my heart to pieces.

 

I seriously thought that Yuuri had somehow managed to bring someone back to life by defeating her at first because of how the transition and ghost form looked.  Typically when a character is possessed they take on the form of someone else, but Hisoka's ghost looked just like her so I seriously thought she had died.

 

Did anyone else have this reaction?

I didn't. If you had a hobby of spending all night reading real life ghost stories you'll encounter ones where people think they're talking to somebody they know but it turned out to be a ghost. This is no different from when Fuyuhi mistook a maiden as Haruka or when Mayu would shape shift to Sae from Mio's perspective.

The difference here though is that the ghost had Hisoka's face.  When Sae was possessing Mayu we didn't see a ghostly form of Mayu we saw Sae.

Like I said before, ghost are able to look like whatever they feel like to trick the person in question.

I did.  It feels like they'd intended to have Hisoka die there but changed their minds, or went for cheap shock value in making you think she had.  I don't get it.  It doesn't feel consistent with what ghosts could do before (if they can all shapeshift, why don't they approach Mio as Mayu, or Rei as Yuu, etc.) and nobody mentions it once it's over.  If I became a ghost and someone death glanced me, I'd have a few things to say.

 

The best explanation I have is Hisoka came close enough to death that she could manifest as a ghost (kinda like the shrine maidens appearing for the marriages, I guess?) while still being alive, because what use does the Kagome have for tricking Yuuri?  It's clearly supposed to be her, down to the necklace and glance.

 

I wish it had been a DCB Sae-like situation where how you defeated Hisoka determined the outcome.  Maybe if you glanced her like a shrine maiden she'd "die", but if you found an opportunity to do Phantom Exposé, you could bring her back.  I don't know.
