I sadly actually can't answer this; I've never read the comic before, and after a quick skimming through the comic's page here, I'm unsure. I can say the events still happen in the comic's world of Silent Hill, though.
HI there! :) That's very nice of you, but I definitely can't take credit for most of it. I'm mainly just the grammar/English and formatting freak, lol. The longer-term staff members are responsible for really building it.
Oof, pardon me, I thought this was from a different user. The information was grammatically messy, so seems at the time I leaned more towards just undoing it versus tidying it up, but that's now been done! Thank you for your contribution.
I'm a long-time lingerer on the Silent Hill recently but I've only deigned to add to any articles recently.
With regard to what you mentioned about my recent changes to the article Scarlet (Boss), I can see that you reasonably objected to the theorizing that monster-Scarlet is recalling the trauma of the dismemberment while she is stunned. I get why you might say that's somewhat far-fetched; we have no way to know whether or not Scarlet (boss) = Scarlet Fitch or just an artificial manifestation by the Otherworld. Even so, it does seem significant how the boss just "stuns" in a strange posture after being hit enough even though she looks quite powerful.
Do you have any suggestions about the proper way to comment about her "stun-lock" in the article that doesn't come across as reading too much into things?
Anyway, it feels good to talk with other Silent Hill fans for once!
Hiya! I personally don't think it should even be mentioned; it only makes sense that a monster would be losing endurance when they're damaged enough, especially considering their "skin" is being eradicated. It is especially noteworthy that this could very well be a fight mechanic, seeing as how wild and limber Scarlet is. It gives the player a much-needed chance to land multiple blows.
And it's nice to have you here! I look forward to and appreciate your help on the wiki. <3
Thank you! :D I'm glad I get to geek out a bit about Silent Hill with someone already! <3
Maybe you're right about the stunning posture, but I wasn't expecting mentioning it to be controversial since I noticed lots of people make the same observation in the comments of various "Scarlet Boss Fight" YouTube videos, so I thought it was a pretty common opinion. *shrug*
It's definitely game-play mechanic for sure, no question. Just like Asphyxia attacking/dying by "breathing" and Scarlet battling Alex like a spider in the second phase, though, it could be a game-play mechanic and also symbolically represent something else.
It is weird that the monster would experience something like "extreme pain". In general the Silent Hill monsters seem to be highly aggressive and inhumanly shrug off damage until they're either dead or in the momentary throes of their death (I suppose unless they're being symbolically tortured by Pyramid Head or Valtiel). The only exceptions to those rules I can think of are Maria and Lisa, but that's only while they're still "human", and Asphyxia, but her body's literally being chopped up so it's not necessarily pain alone that's stopping her. Then again, the Asphyxia example, even if it's not perfect, demonstrates that the monsters in Homecoming seem to have more human-like qualities than in past entries. That being said, Amnion and Sepulcher do come across more like regular monsters.
You have a point that it's strange, but reaching so deep to find symbolism in what is to me clearly a fight mechanic to get in blows in seems a bit far-fetched. I'm especially particular about this subject considering our wiki has gotten shit for "unsupported symbolism" enough as it is, so I try to be as realistic as I can with what we do keep up.
Thanks for bringing it to my attention; they're gone now. Adding shit like that isn't gonna fly here. First time banning someone, so I hope I did it correctly... pretty sure I did. Thanks for keeping an eye out around here!
Actually both ways of saying James is correct but we'll keep it like it is.
"Do we add another s for the possessive form of a name ending with s? Which is correct, Chris’s chair or Chris’ chair? James’s car or James’ car? Actually, both ways are correct. If a proper name ends with an s, you can add just the apostrophe or an apostrophe and an s."
There seems to be some sort of error I am unable to fix wherein the caption to the image in the "Book of Memories" gallery on the Straightjacket page appears italicized even though it's source code tells it otherwise. Before publishing it will appear normal, the first half of the caption not italicized, but after the edit is published, it reverts anyways and the entire thing appears italicized for some reason. Perhaps it should be looked into.
Yikes, sorry this took a whole day! But anyway, for whatever reason, that happens sometimes, other times not... but I believe I can fix it, which I will get to momentarily.
Oh, and just so I don't have to jump over to your wall to post something there when we're already talking here, I wanted to ask here if you can get on citing the Mr. Twilight material ASAP? I personally believe it, but the information is still a big claim I doubt many have seen before (even an addict like me had no idea), so it'd be wise to make sure it's backed up.
It came from scripts found on uncovered physical tapes. Currently they're in the possession of a pro at data backups, although our recovery will still take a few hundred more hours by his estimation. They will be cited, as I said, although I have some of the full prototype scenes in question to hold you over if you like. As of now, I have a few readily converted scripts for the original UFO ending (which will be quite a treat for everyone to read, I assure you), as well as a plethora of concepts and prototype, alpha, beta, and pre-release content. I'm going to do the rounds and save Travis' page for last, since he's got the motherload.
