    I like the box art, but wow

    That doesn't look anything close to his art in Scott Pilgrim

    I haven't read his other books though

    9.5 out of 10 from IGN

    10/10 from Eurogamer

    Man, I love Eurogamer reviews so much. They're written so well that they're like gaming nerd porn.

    I can't wait to get home and play this. Far too many hours between now and then for me to be comfortable.

    The game is great but I'm completely stuck on the (spoilered in case anyone doesn't want to know what one o the early puzzles even involves, but it's just a thing, not plot or anything)
    bell, any idea what the hell you do with it?

    That's just disappointing. Excuse me while I go find the bell again myself. And hate it. And cry.

    From reading reviews, nobody in the world knows what that thing does right now.

    It's just so big and loud and calling to me. It WANTS me to ring it. It NEEDS me to figure it out. But...but...*sniff*...I don't think I can....

    It's so frustrating, I feel like I need to complete every panel before I move on, but that one is a complete mystery. I'm scared of just hitting it randomly in case I solve it without knowing what I did.

    I didn't realize you could
    enter those double cube pieces of wall. The ones that are like interlocking cubes. If you stand in front of them it glows and if you press up a piece of the wall slides out for you to go inside. I've seen a few of those now too. Fuck. How did I NOT realize this. There's one in that bell area though. I'm checking it out now.

    What's the download size on this game?

  • MrDelishMrDelish Registered User regular
    270 megabytes or so

    Also this game is adorable. It also induced my first ever "crash to dashboard"

    Is anyone else finding the frame rate a little...iffy. I'm only playing the demo but on some of the long rotating pans it stutters a fair bit.

    :edit: Also I seem to be a stuck on the demo. I've:
    Collected all of the cube things, gone through a door, climbed up a bit, gone through another door, collected two cube bits and now I can't seem to find out what to do.

    Good Lord this game.

    People wondered how it can have taken this long to release. Clearly now we see that the answer is the he was polishing, and polishing, and polishing, and polishing, until he had made this little baby shine.

    The people acting like they're taking a moral stand against this game need to get over themselves. Like, I could understand it if he was super racist, or was suspected of rape or something, but no, all he's ever done is have mildly controversial opinions about video games. Grow up.

    it's not that he has "controversial opinions," it's that he acts like a total douchenozzle in expressing them.
    there is also a contingent of people who think he "cheated" in the igf awards by entering multiple years/knowing the right people in charge.

    I can't comment about the latter, but the former is pretty much a given fact.
    Choosing not to support someone you think is an asshole is a valid move - no one is obligated to do/buy anything.

    edit: to clarify, I'll be buying Fez as soon as I have more points in my account, but telling people to grow up over something so meaningless is a pretty dumb thing to do.

    Having trouble with secrets in the first area.
    I somehow unlocked the "Cryptographer" achievement, but I don't know what I did to do it. :lol:

    Also, there's a room with a skull and a bunch of Tetris shapes.... I have no clue at all what it wants from Mr.

    So where do I actually go? I
    found the glowing thingies at the start to open the first door, then climbed up to the next door and found two glowing thingies but after that I have no idea what to do or where to go.

    I found the door. D'oh.

    Sadly after finishing the demo it seems to have unsold me on the game. I've been quite looking forward to it (big platform fan) but playing it just didn't seem fun to me.

    (Also the dialogue on the floating cube thingy annoyed me as does the slightly fluctuating frame rate, though it did appear to settle down a bit. Oh and it crashed to Dashboard.)

    Cryptographer achievement.
    It is from a specific combination of right and left trigger pulls. You can get it randomly just by playing.

    The reason behind it is revealed later on, when you
    find a wall with a QR code on it. If you scan the QR code with a smartphone, it contains the text for the sequence.

    Is it that big empty room in the ancient city with the one wall that has that giant QR code on it?

    I don't have a smartphone, so I'm completely unable to get that. :(
    Any way you should share?

    Man, agreed. Some of this is old school, "Hope you're paying fucking attention!" puzzle design.

    I am completely stumped by the
    owl, and by the telescope. What the fucking fuck.

    Owl
    i've found other references to the owl. One in the city at the 8 unlock door and one in a diagram that had four blocks with arrows pointing from or to them that I could not decipher.

    You know, the whole thing reminds me slightly of the feeling I got from Myst. There's all these signs of intelligent life -- homes, tombstones, etc. Things that were obviously built, and they obviously have some specific purpose.

    It's just there's nobody around to show you what that purpose is, so you end up feeling like a monkey poking a calculator with a stick.

    Yeah, I think this guy definitely comes across quite douchey, but me not buying his game isn't going to change that. I think EA and Capcom have some pretty dipshitty business tactics, but I'm still gonna buy the games if the games are good.

    I hope they don't put this guy to work in the next Valve ARG. D:

    I'm playing this game... but I don't know if I have the patience to sit here and figure all this non-fun-puzzle-platformer shit.

    No I don't.
  • UnbreakableVowUnbreakableVow Registered User regular
    If you think it's non-fun puzzle-platforming, why did you buy it?

    I mean, that's what it was touted as (except the non-fun part)

    And these games do have trials
