Hi! :)

Post by quixotic_frujee on Tue Mar 11, 2014 11:49 pm

I found this lovely forum thanks to the Alchemilla Hospital Site (and the SHC give away).
Hope to meet new friends who love Silent Hill too!

I've played SH 1-4, Origins, Shattered Memories & Homecoming. I've a bit of a ps3 gaming backlog but I plan on getting SH:Downpour some day. :)

EDIT: Thanks for reminding me, Wilsden Hill :D

My favorite game is SH3 since I can relate to the
REVEAL SPOILER
Losing your father in a tragic way and feeling devastated

aspect of the game, and my favorite protagonist is Heather Mason.
Favorite monster would be, hm... the nurses? They're just really unnerving. :?

I dunno the ethymology but it must be related to Don Quixote? For example, to me the character Ignatius J. Reilly from A Confederacy of Dunces by John Kennedy Toole is a very Quixotic character.

You're right. It looks pseudo Nahuatl.

I read an article and the latest studies point the probable origins for the word in the Aethiopica (Ethiopian Story) by Heliodorus, where there is a relation between the word describing the part of the armor that covers the thigh (Quasi Cuxotes), from the italian Cuxa (for thigh), and the figure of Homer in relation to this. This work in particular was common read between the generation of authors like Cervantes, Calderon and Lope de Vega, all of them showing influence from it in their own work. And there are also Spanish region languages that make use of the X in a similar fashion to Nahuatl, like the Basque Language.

Oops, by the way... Hello and welcome to SHC! :twisted:.

Hiya and welcome! :P

Pretty rare to see a fan rate the nurses as their most disturbing encounter, at least from what I've seen. I'd go Ariels and Twin victims, tied!

I'm not really sure, but I do know that "quixotic" originated from the titular character of Don Quixote (I haven't read the book yet, but it's on my TBR book-towers-of-doom!) ;)

The definition of the word is pretty much me, in a nutshell. :pirate: Well, the "foolishly impractical" bit.

Really? I guess since most of the monsters are in-your-face gruesome they're all equally scary to me- the nurses are in a league of their own, though. They look pretty normal at first glance but once they get closer my heart rate goes up and I play while muffling screams of terror. :shock:

(It doesn't help that I think hospitals are scary- pre SH gaming, lol)

Hello everyone!
:)
Thanks for reminding me, Wilsden Hill, I already edited my post-
SH:Homecoming was one of the first games I've played on my PS3.

Loved SH:H, hated the wonky controls- I kept using up my first aid kits by accident. :roll:
