Rule of Rose...

A story too cruel - too beautiful - to go untold...

Since I already kind of posted about it on Giant Bomb, I decided to go with this post first.

 

Once upon a time, Amazon.com put this game on my recommendations list. Reading about it, I was positive it was not my kind of game. Way too violent/scary for someone as sensitive as me. Fortunately-Unfortunately (depending on how you look at it... and I change my mind on a day-to-day basis), something got me hooked enough that I couldn't get it out of my mind. It sort of demented me cruelly. ~_~;

I figured it was one of those things where I couldn't forget about it, because I didn't know what happened. So, in order to free myself, I read the entire game script. And I was done...

 

For about a year and a half. Somehow, I began to think about the game again, and thought... oh, I was just blowing things out of proportion. It wasn't really all that scary... was it? And I thought maybe I could, at least, try watching it via YouTube.
 
However, in my researching of the game, I found an awesome website dedicated to figuring out the mysteries left behind in the game. And I found something in one of the blog posts that traumatized me so much that I had trouble being alone or at night for MONTHS.

 

Funny thing is, for me... watching the game (which I did do) is not nearly as scary as the mystery exploring that goes on at that site. There's some blood and creepy imps,*shivers*, yes, but what you actually see in the game is not nearly as bad as what you can see in your mind... if you really take the time to think about.

 

Anyways, I finally bought the game... and someday I will try to play it, but... it's probably not a good idea. Especially not alone. ~_~; But I do spend lots of time on that site. I've read every post I keep pretty up-to-date with what's being talked about. It really is awesome.


Ah, I'm torn. I want to try playing it... but I get freaked out so easily. It's not like I don't know what's coming, having watched the whole thing,  but I'm sure it's more scary playing it. And at the time when I did watch it, it probably wasn't too bad only in comparision to what my mind was seeing just about constantly. But I'm not seeing that very much anymore.

Someone come play it with me? <3

I have it, but I haven't played it yet. My sister got it a while back (she's a huge horror game fan, she's plowed through all the Silent Hills and Resident Evils way too many times to count) and she surprisingly hated it. I thought it would be right up her alley. :/ Anywho, I traded games with her because I wanted to play it eventually, so now it's mine. :D I'm pretty excited about it, because I've heard a lot of good things about it (and to be honest, your post REALLY makes me want to play it because I adore creepy, terrible things).

Haha. Oh, you'll be able to handle, it... no doubt! HeH. I know you play and watch way scarier stuff. It's really not that violent or bloody, anyways.

I think the figuring stuff out after the game is actually more rewarding than the playing of it, it seems. I mean, the gameplay is pretty messy and annoying, I've heard.

If you do start playing it, I'd love to chat about it. ^_^

By the way, I posted about it elsewhere, but I watched the first Whispering Corriders. I liked it. Did you say something about sending me the next one since Netflix doesn't have it?

For me, the more bloody and violent, the better. XD But I can also appreciate more subtle, psychological horror. I think after I finish the SMT games, I'm going to just dig into all the horror games I have stocked up.

My sister mentioned something about how she found the game boring, but then later looked up some info on it and it seemed really interesting. So she actually played it a second time before deciding to trade it (she can get through games like that in like four hours).

But sure, I can send you the second Whispering Corridors. It's called Memento Mori, and it's my personal favorite in the series. Just give me your mailing address. :D

Haha. I figured it was probabably that way with you. HeH. It's definitely more on the subtle, psychological horror side.

I have my mailing address in this post: http://fireflys-locket.livejournal.com/16596.html (It's locked, but you should be able to see it.) Thanks very much!! ^_^

I want to play it! I will come play with you!!!

This is Audry, by the way. I got a magazine in the mail the other day and though it was aimed at young women, it was terrible. It disgusted me. I asked my mom how I can start a magazine that's not about being skeezy and she said to start an online blog. I plan on getting a domain name and all that, but not until I'm sure I won't flake out. So its starting here on LJ and I needed my Piglet <3

Plus, of course, I have questions! Two.
1: I KNOW that LJ used to let me pick where on my journal the Ads would be. Now I can't find that setting.

2. I also know you can have a certain entry always be at the top. Buuut, I don't know how :/

Seriously, though. Get on that train and come to visit me! You will someday... right?

I think that's a great idea. I'll totally advertise you (to the little I can. HeH.) once you get going.

1. Since I pay for LJ, and therefore don't have ads, I doubt I'd be able to find that option on my account, but I'll try looking for it on yours, if you can't figure it out. Send me the info on email or IM.
2. Most people put the year as something far off. That way it's always first. If there's another way, I'm not aware of it.

Good luck!

Love, Piglet <3

PS - I'm proud of you! Stick with it! And get on WL more!! <3

Scary games
Ha! That's nothing. When I chop down trees in Animal Crossing, they just plain VANISH! It's the most frightening thing I've ever seen in a video game!
