DAIJOUBU!! ... Daijoubu ?? ?











Somewhere in the wilds of 'southern Europe' lies a desolate mansion where three students have gone missing and it's up to you to find them and make sure they're alright. A fairly simple premise for a horror game, but underneath that The Note has some very interesting and unique ideas (albeit presented in a very flawed way). Released in '97 for the PS1, the game presents the user with a world of light and darkness with a fairly dynamic lighting system, a day/night system, and a customizable control setup that easily could have been amazing for the time. But for all the positives there were a number of things actively working against 'The Note' ever being remembered as being a cult horror classic.

First and foremost, it had a fairly limited release; in fact it seems to gained quite a bit of infamy for the mere fact that it seemed to be one of the rarer titles for the PS1 (though I can't seem to find exact numbers anywhere as info on the game is fairly sparse). Secondly, the game only saw release in the Japanese and PAL regions; which was more than likely due to Sunsoft not really having much faith in the title being popular in other markets and really it was surprising that Sunsoft would even touch this product as they mostly seemed to work with licensed games. Lastly, even with it's limited release, the most damning issue that 'The Note' has is well....it's not really fun to play. For all it's interesting ideas, it easily goes one step forward and two steps back. Cumbersome combat, vague puzzles and objectives, and while it's control scheme is great it's also hampered heavily by the fact it gives you about 16 different things that you might need to map with only four buttons available. But hey, that's why I'm here; to give you a safe and comfortable ride through this mostly forgotten title, right?


The main man, Akira; freelance paranormal investigator, lovely marksman with a shotgun, and generally thick headed nitwit. But beggars can't be choosers, especially when it comes to finding missing children in Europe in a spooky mansion.


Akira's right hand helper, Angela; formerly Daria's best friend, she assists Akira as best she can....which is mostly saying people are unpleasant and shady. Usually though she's pretty much right on the money.


The mysterious lady in red, Necromeda; the malevolent mistress of muerte. Just why did she need her stone so badly and what evil machinations does she have in store for those missing children? Only time will truly tell.


A mysterious man in black, Paulo; the very essence of late 90's coolness and the only real friend we've been able to meet in 'southern Europe' so far. But we already mess it all up by giving away his coveted soul stone...hopefully we can kiss and make up.


Cool as a cucumber and twice as green, Dave; a well-meaning and endearing member of the trio of kids that went missing who is probably in over his head but he doesn't seem to mind. He's just that cool.


The yin to Dave's yang, Toshi; quick to accept the inevitable and even quicker to blame others for his current predicament, Toshi is the wild card of the trio. You just never know what he's going to do next...whine or whinge.


The one who took all the pics, Linda; without Linda none of this would have been possible, though it's a bit of a toss up if that's a positive or a negative since it's led to demonic imprisonment.

I really like you showing off these old & obscure horror games, especially the one that are either dead ends design wise or where whatever it inspired is just as obscure or was never available in English.
While I love lot's of verbs in adventure games The Note really shows off why most of them have consolidated into Look & Use(Or even just a single interact button), by the second room You've already run out of buttons for even to most common commands.

Everybody's just so undisturbed by all these disturbing events. This lady turned into a floating torso? Oh, she's some sort of monster. Well, that explains everything.

To repeat what Hel said, I really enjoy you showing off these more obscure games, and having an almost academic indifference to them. I feel like I can appreciate them more with the way they're presented instead of being overwhelmed by their flaws.

Yeah, I was only really able to find one other full LP for the game and it was just overwhelmingly negative...and I mean granted, it is fairly cumbersome and it can be bad but there's so much worse out there. I mean comparatively you have something like Countdown Vampires which was way better received and came out like three years later, and it's way worse to me. But yeah, haha, I'm fairly lenient as we all know.

edit: I will say though that we'll be getting an added challenge at the end of the next video that is pretty much complete bullshit and I have no problems admitting that it's terrible.

Well good news, we get even more voice acting next time and someone actually does react in a more realistic way. And even better news, they decide against doing another six minute long cutscene...cause while I do love goofy camera work and bad voice acting, it did end up dragging on.

Definitely, it'd be nice to have just a general interact/check button but in the end them having all the verbs broken down actually helps with puzzles later on. They're nice little hints here and there, like with the clock. Inspecting it will tell you it's broken, but knowing there's the ability to turn the hands will give you a hint that there's something you need to do with that. Same thing with the pull, push, and even the oddly worded 'erase' action which is how you put out fires/lights. All of which can be necessary to proceed through the game or solve puzzles.

I was considering trying to get my hands on a copy and play along, and then you got to the oil management part and instead I really appreciate you playing this even more. While I don't know how extensive the time management is going to be I really like the idea that the threat against the player character isn't the big danger since you can just go and shop at the town, instead you have to make sure the other characters don't get hurt. Being given a safe place and having to willingly enter danger to save others is a pretty neat way to do a horror game, especially a game where you can actually defend yourself .BTW if Angela needs a can of oil every hour do you actually have enough time to go and shop for some? is the town visit "Free" time wise as long as you don't stay in the hotel?

Apr 7, 2009

DAIJOUBU!! ... Daijoubu ?? ?


Yeah, time kinda stops when you go to town (unless you specifically stay at the inn to rest up and force time to progress) but I guess I should have specified regarding the timer for Angela. The oil will roughly last about six in game hours, so you have roughly one real world hour to do whatever and get back to her as well. So, if you manage to keep the areas lit and the enemies don't respawn, it might only take 3 minutes to get to town from Angela and another 3 to get back to her; or as I'll be keeping stocked up on most things, we just need to drop what we're doing and get back to her. Thankfully Akira will keep track of when the timer is running down and he'll give you a five minute warning to get back to her. But it doesn't help the fact that it's a bit of an arbitrary hurdle to get over and as you can imagine it does make exploring a bit dire to do....which makes matters worse as the next area is large, winding, and a bit of a difficult spike.

I've been sitting here for 5 mins trying to think of a joke to make but I just realised the animators of Mass Effect already did it for me



"You know what challenge would add some spice to our game? Routine backtracking every hour exactly." I mean if they had said it out loud maybe they would realize how miserable it sounds.

This could kind of work if you could give her all she needs at once and then so whatever without concern. Or if one oil can was enough. Then not giving her the oil can is basically you saying "I want the bad ending this time." Which is fun sometimes. I like killing the people who depend on me in games when I have the option to actually do that instead of it just being a game over condition.

Two hours in and we finally get our first piece of reading material...but I get a feeling it's still not the titular note.

Also the original length of this video before editing was a whooping 52 minutes; I edited out two trips to give Angela oil and edited out ummmmm let's say failures. And I know people love watching failure, so here's a bonus video: Bonus 2- Over and over and over again

Yeah, there are even some instances where killing folks can lead to better and more fulfilling endings. I feel like Trapt did that and there's probably other games as well. But overall, I can't really tell what they were trying to get at with forcing the player to backtrack and use their limited resources to keep a room lit, especially given the fact that the Spirits' Castle is spectacularly frustrating. Annoying enemies that try their best to put out lights, obtuse environmental puzzles, bullshit trap rooms....such a massive difficulty spike and the cherry on top is being deep in the castle and having Akira say 'Man, I think the oil is almost out in the room'.

The best I can think of is they wanted to really make sure the player remembered there was a time mechanic in the game cause dammit they worked hard on that and the lighting. That's why every loving corridor is dark as a coal miner's rear end in a top hat.

That's why I here, amigo. I'm also here to try out and show off what the game is like in Japanese and it's actually kind of a better game.


Bonus 3- What's it like in Japanese

So immediately you can tell the voice acting is better (minus the weird distortion they put on the opening narrator), but there's other changes as well. Like the control setup is different in that left and right on the d-pad are for strafing and two of the face buttons are for turning. Also it seems like the enemies took more damage to take down (like the feral wolves took six bullets to take down instead of three). But I think what stood out most to me was that Akira is just constantly smoking; it actually explains his weird sneer in the intro and it's because it was holding a sweet smoke there originally.

It's still a bit strange how much better the game comes across with good voice acting and less goofy Western names. Still not sure why they also changed the Japanese names to other Japanese names though; like Akira in the Japanese game was Kazuya? Though Toshi was still called Aikawa Toshihiko, which is a reasonable shortening I guess.

I definitely know that feeling, but if it would help I can manipulate the brightness input settings at the start of the game and make it brighter. Sadly though the game only really seems to have two different brightness options, so it's a toss up to me which works better (and believe it or not, both pictures have the same in-game lighting):


I mean I personally would enjoy not having to light up lamps anymore or fumble about, but it does seem to detract from the atmosphere to have everything so visible. But if it is a hinderance to the LP, then I will gladly up the brightness.

Also for an extra bit of anger inducing annoyance that the game has, every time you load into the game from a fresh boot (whether it be you're starting a new game or loading a save) the game will make you go through that "Can you see this button nonsense". It just does not save it anywhere or make it any easier to do and I have no idea why.

Hell, I would have been fine if they had just had some Brits, or general Europeans, doing the voices since they only released the game PAL side for Western audiences. But these are all questions lost to the ether; it's not like this developer ever really did anything else good. Like seriously...they maybe did like four games total after being open for over a decade.

Also I recorded the footage tonight for the next bit of the game and boy howdy are you guys going to be in for a treat. We got action, we got puzzles, we got cutscenes with your favorite characters, and the best part: we will be done with giving oil to Angela!

But on a bit of a goofy, and sad, tangent I decided to run google hangouts today from my youtube account. It's basically chat setup for whatever little traffic comes from Google+ and I realized I had a couple messages on there. They were mostly saying hi, but one of the messages had some fan art for an LP I had done before and I feel bad that I missed it when it was originally sent two years ago. So for your viewing pleasure, some nice fan art from Alen Blazekovic for the *redacted* LP:

Then that works out, cause I also decided to give myself an easier time and went with a higher brightness for the next video. Hopefully that does help and I'll probably stick with that for the rest of the LP.

Yeah, I can't even begin to describe how much I was loving up with the Japanese controls since they put strafing on the d-pad and turning was the X and O buttons. I was like "gently caress, I gotta face this wolf biting me in the rear end....but instead I'm strafing!"

I'm enjoying the LP so far. Man though, those controls, while interestingly flexible, just look super unpleasant to actually deal with. I can imagine fumbling through this without a walkthrough and getting really frustrated.

Sorry for the delay but I'm babysitting cats and they need love and constant staring at.

This is what I choose to do with my time.

And finally I think we're actually about half way through the game and spoiler alert: still no note...

So just a quick lil bonus video with some poo poo I had in mind to do (though one of those things ended up not working out in the end) but still, it's got a good pay off I'd say: Bonus 4- Loose ends in the Spirit Castle

If anyone really wants me to try to figure out how to get rid of Angela I can, but apparently all it leads to is Dave being found dead in the dungeon and gently caress that noise

Well if it makes you feel anymore comfortable, someone in the youtube comments informed me that Paulo is voiced by the same guy who voiced Barry in Resident Evil and that guy was totally on the up and up.

I can't say it's the worst I've heard, but yeah, it's pretty bad. Even beyond the problems with bad acting in general I'm guessing that the actors had no idea what the context for their lines were either. It sounds like Angela is yelling her inquiry about Akira's health due to him falling down a deep slope or something, not getting the crap beat out of him.

Yeah, the most disconcerting thing to me is that the voices you hear the most (Akira and Angela's) seem to be the least experienced voice actors in the game. You'd assume they'd have put more effort into their actors specifically since you hear them so much...but nope. Angela is screechy as gently caress and Akira has no emotion whatsoever.

Yeah, for some reason the person who was taking care of the Note wikipedia page didn't link the right developer cause one of the dev's other games (Monster Seed) links to a page for NK System as a developer. But in the end, they made next to nothing in about a decade and definitely nothing that people would recognize or would even stand out (like one game was a licensed product for Space Battleship Yamato).

I tried to run the Japanese title through google translate (公開されなかった手記(こうかいされなかったしゅき)) which came back with: A note that was not released (Shuki that did not go through). So maybe it was 'The Unreleased Note'? But that still makes no sense in the context of the game.

What? I got the feeling that the main part of the game just started, is it really just going to be finding the other kids in the new dungeons before finishing off Necromeda and leaving Pablo to his work as maintainer of the castle?
Doesn't Japanese use the word "note" for notebooks? Not that we've seen any of those either.

Also I really like that the teleport markers were used in more puzzles than the one they were introduced in, even if it was just a simple use item on thing one. Far to few games actually let you use teleport powers to solve things, instead just letting them be a fast travel system.

And the game decides to throw a bit of a softball with this our penultimate update. With a relative small area to explore, some fairly safe puzzles to solve, and fairly easy to dispatch Hunter rip-offs from Resident Evil the sewers water prison is a nice change of pace from the hectic backtracking we've had to do otherwise. But that doesn't mean it's all smooth sailing...no, this update does have a few nasty tricks up it's sleeve. Sill though no note.

Additionally, I've continued on with my save to see what changes when you let the kids get murdered and it's not that different but there are a few ways that the game handles that side of progression: Bonus 6- The failure path keeps on giving
