|Actually, that multi-ghost fight in the demon hall is supposed to be beatable... They aren't very hard individually, but 3 of them together are a pain. Sometimes you can get a double shot or triple shot with all 3 of them in the frame for more points.|
That hallway leads to a dead end... The girl sees her brother again, passed a caved in wall, but he doesn't respond when she calls out to him...
Other than that, this whole chapter contained exactly 0 new areas... and also almost no wandering ghosts at all (I think there was 1 total).
It did have a LOT of attacking ghosts though... They seem to appear randomly, but get less and less common as you fight them. or maybe there's a set number of them that randomly appear... A lot of these random ghosts are really easy ones like the ones from the 1st chapter, but sometimes you get this really hard traveling monk ghost that spins in circles really fast and shoots projectiles at you...
I basically just re-explored the whole mansion, collecting all the items that I could. I desperately needed more film and healing items. I tried not to use up too many healing items but the sheer number of attacking ghosts in this chapter made it impossible...
Only one area that I've been to before is now locked... That shrine in the atrium outside... I eventually found the key for it by solving a puzzle with the 4 buddha statues... and that locked door was another one of those matching puzzles, harder than usual... Inside the moon shrine there was now a bunch of button terminals. 4 of them... Each had a picture leading to one of the 4 big stone/grave monuments that I've been to in previous chapters... So I had to go to each of these 4 places and fight 4 priest ghosts, They are kinda hard... sometimes they remove their head so you can't take their picture but you can still see them.. and then they put their head back on right before they're about to attack.
Oh yeah that's a thing I've started getting better at now... Shooting a ghost when the reticle turns orange, when they are coming in for an attack, gives you bonus points and also pushes the ghost back.
I now have MOST of the camera upgrades... The guide says I should have all of them by now but I missed so many wandering ghosts in the first 2 chapters... I've gained enough points to buy the paralysis special attack... it turns out to not be that good. You have to be aimed on the ghosts when you use a special or else it won't work and will still use up a stone.
Went back to the mirror shrine after defeating those 4 boss ghosts... I didn't understand how you were supposed to interpret the puzzle clues but I brute forced it easily... That made some altar come up out of the moon shrine... but instead of a thing that was supposed to be inside it, there was a bunch of blood revealed by the camera... The blood trail lead me to a previous area in the mansion, and there I had to battle the samurai ghost... This guy was insanely hard. I was all out of healing items by now, and had to use my strongest film and just barely survived on the 2nd attempt.
I'm still not even sure if that was the last battle of this chapter... I hope so because there are NO healing items available anymore in this chapter. I'm pretty sure I'm supposed to take this item I got from the samurai ghost back to the moon shrine next.
