Uncensored scene (PC version)

Post by Jedahaw »

I was looking around for any topics about this, but i couldn't find any.
I don't know whether you guys knew about it, but...


This is the video that Konami originally wanted it to be.

ouch, i'm glad they made up their mind and changed the video. i like it better with more distorted overlays and especially without Mary's screams...

on the other hand i may have recognised that James killed Mary on my first play, which i didn't back then with the used video -.-

I actually find the silent version of the murder more disturbing.
"Oh yeah, I've been here before
I can see it with eyes closed
Shadows that look like blood
Dead as far as the mind goes
Fear that comes from my head
Lives in the mirror"

The first time I played and watched the video I didn't even notice what James was doing to Mary.

I prefer it though without the screams as they kind of ruin the moment to me. I think that the silence helps make the scene give more emotional impact.

I think it would have been better this way. Well, maybe with fewer screams...

Yeah, I've seen this forever ago.
I like this one more, without the screams. It like kind of lets you know what he is doing more than like the first time I saw it, he looked heartless, and I didn't really know what he was doing to her without seeing it over again and I don't remember the little kiss on the forehead. They should have used this version.

That's pretty fucked up! But not that disturbing, by the way I think the censored version is better. I mean, it's more questionable, the first time that I saw the censored version when playing I didn't knew what James was doing, I tought he was raping Mary or something like that...

>I don't remember the little kiss on the forehead.
In the censored version James kiss Mary. Konami got away only the screams, but it's the same cut scene ;)

i thought he was raping Mary too at first... :shock:

i think the one with the screams's much more disturbing than the one without. in the censored one, i thought Mary just let James suffocate her; i thought she understand. But this shows that Mary didnt want to die and that she struggled to free herself from James...

not too disturbing, shoulda used it in my opinion. Like some of you said...I had no idea what was going on my first playthrough, with this version there would be no doubt.

when i watched this, for me, it wasn't disturbing, but more of a heart-wrenching feeling.
It's very tragic, dood. :cry:

Anyhow, someone ripped off the sound from the PC version SH2 disc along with recording the video from the game combining them into the clip we have just seen.

Good job.

People like the censored version better because they are used to it.

I do agree, though. Minamalism for the win.

I liked the original better since it's "creepier" without the sound

That's waaay creepier with the screams.

They should've used this version; because I didn't even understand what James was doing to Mary the first time I ever played. Maybe with less screaming though. :?
James: Me? No... I'd never kill myself...
It's hot as hell in here.
Angela: You see it too? For me, it's always like this.

It was a good video. I think they should have gone with this version.
