I've been playing through Fatal Frame 1 and 2 as well. Despite a game crash that kept me from seeing the end sequence of the first Fatal Frame, the game really holds up. I agree about the camera obscura not making you feel invulnerable: like the early resident evil games, you have a means of defending yourself, but has its limitations. Near the end of the game I was dreading the random appearance of those ghosts that spin around the room at high speeds, usually I just ran because catching them with the camera would use up my already limited film supply.
I've emulated this and Mother 3, quite enjoyed them. If they ever make a 3ds virtual console release and the price isn't crazy, I'd get it. Goes without saying for Mother 3, as unlikely as that is to happen.
Got Crimson Shroud and Aeroporter when they were on sale, both were good. Aeroporter especially; it's a throwback to when games were just pure concept, usually something mundane like making burgers or serving beer. In this case, it's automated baggage handling. EXTREME baggage handling!
I'm not kidding, shit gets hard.
Since the 01 games eventually got discounted I've been hoping they'll do the same with the Guild 02 ones, so I definately want em, but I'm waiting.
While I was reading that thread about the copyright troll I noticed phisheep was banned recently, some kind of threating or sounding like blackmailey post, hard to say because the posts he was banned for were deleted. Strange twist on a strange story.
@patrickklepek If you haven't read it yet, RPS posted this today, basically a response to the responses to their articles about women in the games industry, very much worth reading!!
That one isn't worth reading because the guy would rather get too confrontational than go for a much better, level-headed solution. This is a far better link, much calmer, far more reasonable, and actually acknowledges points that no one, not even Patrick, is willing to bring up.
I can't speak for everything the man's ever written but found the article in question to be excellent. But thanks for the link, it was an interesting read, especially the comment section afterward which actually resembled a well informed, civil discussion of the subject (at least at the time I was browsing it)
