Strobe lighting and the scent of musty old books rises from within the fog...
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
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

So just got this today and its CREEPY. But I've never played a game with a fixed camera and I'm finding combat kinda hard, so far the ghosts have my ass up for sale, can someone provide me with any hints or tricks to the ghost busting trade?

Conserve healing items. I can't stress this enough. This game gets really tough later on, and if you aren't prepared it's going to either make the game incredibly difficult or force you to restart. In the first couple of nights there are Stone Mirrors absolutely everywhere. There are 17 in total in the game - five on Night 1, six on Night 2, four on Night 3 and two on the Final Night. There is very little in terms of actual healing items, though - a maximum of 25 Herbal Medicine and 10 Sacred Water in one playthrough. The trick here is to use the abundance of mirrors on the first two nights to your advantage: when you get low on health, rather than wasting valuable healing items you should expend your Stone Mirror, then go and grab another. This will let you accumulate healing items to use later on (and believe me, you will need as much as you can get).

 

Make sure to stop off at save points and top up your Type-14 film whenever you dip under 30 shots. You never know when that extra couple of photos will save you. If you're having trouble with a particular ghost, don't be afraid to use some Type-37 film; there are 228 shots of it in the game, so you're in no danger of running out if you use it cautiously. There's a lot less of Types 74 and 90 (60 and 24 shots respectively), so be more careful with these. Type-90 in particular should be saved for the final boss if you possibly can (at least try to hold out on using any until you get to the end of Night 3). It's also a simple little thing, but too easily forgotten - remember to change to Type-14 film when you're taking photos of vanishing and hidden ghosts so you don't waste any more precious film.

 

The director/co-creator actually gave some tips on the game's website for people who were having trouble. They sum it up better than I probably could:

 

Battle Lectures

 

#1 Indefinitely refill film

#2 Easily avoid ghosts using the right stick

#3 Turning quickly to catch ghosts

#4 Secrets of the health items

Ah thanks a bunch

Beat the first night, conservation is okie to say the most. Broken neck was a pain at first she like 3 hit combo'd me. I battled crucified man I think it was fine without using to much film or health items, forced me to use stone mirror but there was another one near the Shinto gate. Learned to use R1 to shoot instead of X as you can move around easier. Creep factor has worn away just the now hope it will get scarier, so far really impressed. Deep crimson butterfly is brilliant but compared to this bad boy, DCB is a cake walk in both difficulty and fear.

Hi there, the first thing I did was to check for subtitles, I always like to turn them on when playing a game with plenty of dialogue(did the same for Fatal Frame 2), I don't see any option for it so I'm guessing there are none for this game, or I missed something?

The first game doesn't have subtitles in any language, sadly, no. All of the others do (except the Japanese version of FF3, since the subtitles are bugged and don't work even when switched on).

A shame, enjoying the game nonetheless, the mansion is pretty creepy, some of the voice acting it's nowhere as good as that in Fatal Frame 2.
