In battle?

Framed

So my girlfriend brought her Playstation 2 over this weekend, and we went out and picked up Fatal Frame 2.

Then, as should be done with all survival-horror games, we waited until it got dark (which is pretty early around here now), turned off all of the lights and curled up on our futon. We then proceeded to play straight until the sun came up for two nights in a row, and damn is this game creepy.

She's a bit more jaded than I am when it comes to survival-horror, but this game had moments that were giving us both goosebumps. There are a lot of unique aspects to the game (some stuff was fairly cliche), and the overall mood was very dark and disturbing. If you like to be creeped out, pick up this game.

It's a pretty decent length, too. We've put in two eight-hour sessions so far. We're right at the end now, but that's a fairly good length for these types of games. I'll let you know whether the ending lives up to the rest of the game or not.

Store and Lineage

The store is back up for most people. If you still can't see it, give it another day or so. You have until the end of this week to order the new designs in pre-order.

Also, I'm playing around in the Lineage 2 beta test. If you're in, you can drop me a line. Character name is Absath. I'd tell you guys all about it, but there's still an NDA. As soon as they lift it, I'll spill the beans.
