  1. so, it's been said that rhombus of ruin was a story tim didn't intend to tell, psychonauts 2 always beginning right after the psychonauts get back from that mission, being like "what a fun mission, right guys?" and i figured it'd be like that still after both ROR and PN2 were announced, but there were actually a few big things in rhombus that i'm struggling to figure out how they'll be dealt with smoothly. mostly with regards to doctor loboto. i assume he's going to be dealt with in psychonauts 2 some more (what with him being stowed away in the overhead bin) but him being still alive and being a lobotomized psychic seemed like pretty huge reveals to me. so, having said that ROR isn't a required play to fully enjoy psychonauts, how are they gonna make those two big reveals come off smoothly and satisfyingly when loboto pops up in psychonauts 2? i of course have the utmost faith in tim's writing, but i still wonder how he's gonna pull it off. thoughts?
  2. New Developer Documentary - Raz's Family

    game's looking amazing! i'm already such a huge fan of frazie, just from this and from her launching a rock at raz's cranium in the previous update. also, i wonder: will the game be pushed back to spring of 2019, or later in the year, do you think? either way, i've spent so long thinking this game would never come that waiting just a while longer for the most perfect version of it is no skin off my nose. <3
  3. Merit Badges

    hey, good point! that completely slipped my mind. that would be a fine way to keep badges around in a way, since they are pretty iconic.
  4. Merit Badges

    so i was thinking about psychic powers earlier today, and about how they're represented-- in psychonauts 1, it's merit badges, in RoR (though i haven't played yet) it's sort of just the ability because every power is assigned to a specific button. but how do you think the powers will be represented in psychonauts 2? i'm not sure they'll be merit badges in this game because that's all very summer campy. permits, maybe? some sort of more adulty certificate that's still fun? what d'you think?
  5. Help!

    i'm in the middle of a 100% run as we speak to hold myself over until i get to play ROR hopefully next week, and i'm already dreading the endgame go-back to milla's mind, specifically because of that race. her whole mind is so vibrant and colorful and pretty! unfortunately, so are all figments! but that's why you do 100% runs, right? it's like joining the polar bear club.
  6. THIS came out today! i'm losin' my mind! also, dat release date. february 21st! i know there'll probably be a post about this but still.
  7. YAY, Q&A! will there be multiple ways to solve certain puzzles, or will they all be pretty linear? also, in the same way that RoR starts just after PN1 ends, does PN2 start just after RoR ends? ... though that might be a spoiler. also, if i stand up and start running across the room and like into a bookshelf, will raz move too even though he's not supposed to? i'm really excited for the game! really gives me an excuse to get off my butt and start racking up the bucks for a ps4 i mean psychonauts vr machine
  8. oh, i know about the quarterly schedule! that's why i was wondering aloud, because the one announcement was a little late because of SEC stuff.
  9. will the next update be this month, i wonder, or in january? i am officially jonesing for more psychonauts content!
  10. i dunno if this is the right thread for this, but check out the NEW RHOMBUS OF RUIN FOOTAGE! there's like four seconds of it but it looks amazing!! EDIT: BETTER!
  11. Psychonauts 2 FigUpdate #1

    being the nerd i am, i too asked on twitter. DF responded that there is an update coming soon! that was a week ago, so we're closing in. my guess is the tenth, since the last one was on the tenth and i think these are quarterly.
