Maybe it stands for

"SAVE THE GAME! BIG BATTLE AHEAD"

plus it's the last save point in the game isn't it? Meaning you should save or you're gonna have a lot of backtracking...

It's not your job to say what's insignificant or not - this actually managed to be intelligent. Yours hasn't really gone anywhere. Sorry.

Look, I know we're going in circles but let me tell you how I view the cituations.

#1. I was told I can't comment on other people's postings that they're less significant. HOWEVER about 15 people kept telling me that I'm posting insignificant topics......what's going on here? i'm really confused. I thought I brought up a valid argument to support my claim on Maria's hair and the plants. Ok maybe a lot of people didn't get my point , HOWEVER they kept telling me that what I was trying to defend was insignificant.

#2, I know it doesn't pertain to my concerns, but I must ask, did YOU tell the other people to at least back off on their accusations of my posting was insignificant? I'm not trying to suggest anything, but I obviously wasn't happy with everyone badgering me......i thought people came here to discuss,......not to belittle people's opinions.......i was wrong.

#3 What is my best alternative, I really don't want to leave this forum,,i like it here but if everyone doesn't want to look at my postings and at least try to understand them, then i might as well leave right?

"Happy people can be so cruel, is it really hard to believe that happiness can be born from pain and suffering?"

Thanks for reading this

Tears of...

Much like how your post was insignificant. Must you start things with everyone? Just because your topic edit: got horrible comments you don't need to criticize others. This topic has gotten somewhere, if you didn't know. There are some excellent theories people have made here. Like Krist. said, this topic has managed to be intellegent. It has a point, and if you noticed, more people are interested in figuring out what the nine saves really mean than they care about the characters' hair color. So please, your topic was locked, so leave it and stop bothering everyone else.

But it could also be an allusion to the states from Hell to Bodhisattva, which are termed "the nine worlds." The highest level, the tenth level, is Buddhahood. By entering that room James "attains" his own "Buddhahood", his enlightenment, the realisation of his crimes. So, it's not far fetched that the nine save points may be an allusion (and a perversion) of that, especially with the lads who did the job are Japanese.


I really like this theory. It makes sense, sure that would be why Team Silent would probably put it in there to reflect that. This probably is what the nine saves are based on if that's not entirely correct. One can never be completely sure, but I think you pretty much hit the nail on the head with this one.

Like........oh my GOD :shock: Cats have nine lives too :shock: !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It could mean anything, numbers hold religious significance too :o :shock: , perhaps if this save point was located in the SH3 church, it could've led to someting presise :o ......however, a number is a number, a save point is a save point. a rake is a rake........a sexually frustrated person is a sexually frustrated person.......

Cool & can it, would you? Like I said, and like others have said--people have come up with some really interesting ideas about this. You should actually read the thread.

I found out that there's a similar symbol, used to tell somebody to "take off" or leave, well I think it's got something to do with the danger present of the pyramid heads.

Haha, that's what I thought! I thought it was meant to scare you, let you know that you're really going to need to save before going any further. Never thought about if it had any specific meaning. Just thought it was a random number of saves they stuck there. It could have have been 5 or 6; but instead they decided to put 9 cause....it looked good that way, or...something. *shrugs*. But I guess it's cool to look into what "9" stands for. People say the devil's number is 666, others say 999. But I think that was already mentioned, that the number represents the devil.

666 doesn't even represent the devil, really. There's numerous ways it can be interpreted. I've even heard someone say that it points to Emperor Nero. Some debate whether the original biblical passage read "the number of man" or "the number of a man."

Then again, let's not forget that Revelations was written by a guy stranded on an island for a number of years. He had lots of time on his hands.

Where does this come from? It really seems to fit.

I think it just symbolizes that everything is finally coming together or are about to.

ie: A bunch of save points finally coming together.

I think the nine save points are there, just as a way for Team Silent to say " Ok guys, you seriously need to save here, don't ignore this savepoint, its important- the end boss is coming up" Because not everyone always saves, so...maybe they were just making it very obvious. :P

I didn't ever consider that had a deeper meaning, but looking at the posts written here, it's got me thinking XD
