Emi : (07 October 2018 - 03:25 PM) And... i went on that diatribe because I was reading earlier posts... oops. :> Going to stop spamming chat up now.
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. ☺️

It's kinda already hard not to take a pause from the series when we get games every 4 years now. We can already 100% all the games before we can get a new game. Fatal Frame isn't like Kingdom Hearts or Resident Evil that receives a new game every other year. Or worse, Call of Duty or FIFA that get a new game yearly. Just saying.

I hope that they take their time with FF6 or whatever they decide to do. It was a little odd how they kept reusing assets like if they were GTA NPCs. That's my only problem with FF5. The game just wasn't ready and we could already tell from lack of extras.

Fatal Frame has always had a formula that has kept it from huge mainstream success, and that's trying to blend a shiny anime-like presentation with exceedingly morbid and gory subject matter. It's too much of a clash in the video game medium for the tastes of most, there's no other game like that out there and there's a reason for that. 


As far as FF5 being a betrayal of Fatal Frame standards, I don't think I agree with that, but the game is absolutely sub-par in certain respects. There are way too many battles, it's too well-lit, some of the characters are jarringly annoying, the motion controls don't add anything to the experience, recycled BGMs and sound effects, and little touches are missing from the game - for example, the little bits of visual static whenever a vanishing ghost appears. That and the game simply isn't very frightening - the scariest part of the whole thing might've been the video tape of the Veiled House, and that wasn't even a gameplay moment.
