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

Theoretically speaking what would happen if say one hour a guy neglected his purifying light and it ran out ? Cause this guy in particular hates being on a time scale

That hypothetical guy would end up being chased around from room to room by Reika, and would probably waste more time evading her than he would save in not looking for candles.

Nothing, really. Everything will go black and white and Reika will chase you, but you will be rather disappointed to discover that while she's really fast she barely takes any of your health when she grabs you - she's not an instant kill or anything like that. Just run back to the nearest drop point or wake up using one of the exits and go back in. You'll have a full candle again. Beware that if you go for the drop, she won't just stop chasing you - it will be in colour again, but Reika is still coming after you. It's often easier just to wake up, unless it would knock you too far off your path. If you're just following along with the story you may not even run out of light, but if you go off exploring you almost certainly will at least a couple of times. It's irritating, but it's not anywhere near as troubling as it probably sounds. Make a mental note of the points where you see purifying lights appear, and then you can go back and grab them as needed. They respawn in the exact same points every night for each character.


In summary: ignore it if you want, but prepare to sprint. There are enough candles along your storyline route to keep you going quite happily. You're better off keeping your candles stocked than having to deal with Reika, because although she isn't at all dangerous she is really annoying to shake off.

Ack figures, god she's so annoying! Especially when she chases you in all gods village as kei came out the kimono room and she (frightenly) appeared and greeted me with a choke
