This is it! This is what it all comes down to… what I’ve been training for.
Will that tortuous Nightmare mode playthrough of Project Zero, along with finally clearing out that pesky ghost list, prepare me for a long-overdue S-rank clear of any of the missions in the game’s Battle mode? Will my epic battle against that dead guy in that one closet have all been worthwhile?
Find out on today’s episode of New Game Plus, only on MoeGamer. And, err, YouTube.

This is it! It’s nearly over! Yes, today we clear Nightmare mode on Project Zero for the first time.
The last night in the game was actually a whole lot shorter than I remembered it being, but at least there’s only one wandering ghost to pick up on our ongoing quest to clean up the ghost list.
Hit the jump to see how the buildup and the dramatic conclusion to Miku’s story went this time around…

I think we’re over the worst in our Project Zero Nightmare mode playthrough!
Today’s episode concerns the third “night” of the game, and unfolds surprisingly smoothly. There are only two “vanishing” ghosts to find in this chapter… but there are some tough fights ahead, so we’re certainly not in any sort of safe space just yet.

No more fleeing children!
That doesn’t mean we’re out of the woods in our Nightmare mode playthrough of the first Project Zero on PlayStation 2, however. There are still plenty of hostile ghosts just waiting to cover us in ectoplasm and have their wicked incorporeal way with us. Perhaps not necessarily in that order.
Hit the jump to see how Miku’s continuing adventures proceeded today…

Miku Hinasaki’s excellent adventure continues as we crawl through Chapter 2 of Project Zero in an attempt to fill out our Ghost List further.
The ghosts we have to capture this time around are some of the trickiest in the game, but if you believe in yourself, you can do anything, anything!
Eventually, anyway. Hit the jump to see how this latest misadventure went.

After last week’s mishaps, we get well and truly back on track with our quest to fill out that damn ghost list.
Today we make a start on the second chapter of Project Zero on Nightmare difficulty, and encounter some of the most challenging to capture “wandering ghosts” in the game. While not hostile, you’ll still need wits, skill and proper preparation to add these little buggers to your list.
Hit the jump and see just quite how much in the way of wits, skill and proper preparation I have in evidence…

Today we continue with Project Zero’s postgame… and I find myself afflicted with a curse through my own silly fault.
Today we continue on with the first chapter of our Nightmare mode replay, attempting to keep an eye out for as many missing ghosts from the Ghost List as possible.
Unfortunately, it seems, fate had other plans for me. Hit the jump to see what went on.

That ol’ reliable quote about the definition of insanity being something along the lines of “doing the same thing over and over again expecting different results” is apparently widely attributed to Albert Einstein (and Far Cry 3), but it seems Einstein probably didn’t actually say it.
It’s a good quote, though, and particularly applicable to situations like that which you are about to witness in Himuro Mansion, courtesy of my continuing adventures through Project Zero’s postgame.
Hit the jump and see precisely what I’m talking about… ROPES!

A little late for New Game Plus this week, I know, but I had to prioritise finishing off Maiden of Black Water, which I’m delighted to say I have now done. Please read my piece on it!
In New Game Plus, it’s right back to the beginning of the Project Zero series for us as we kick off a full-on actual New Game Plus run of the main story mode — this time on Nightmare difficulty.
Everything you ended the game with — film, healing items, camera upgrades — carries across into a new game, so this should be easy, right…?

Load up your film, kiddies, we’re going for another photography field trip.
This time around, we take on the last tier of Project Zero’s Mission Mode, featuring battles against multiple ghosts at once and a rematch against the game’s final boss, Kirie.
There are some great rewards on offer, but there are also some stiff challenges in our way… hit the jump to see how I got on!
