  1. maybe this sort of post doesn't really lend itself to the Style of the DF forums? i dunno. but i sort of want to get it from the horse's mouth about this conundrum i'm dealing with here. so long story short, i got a PSVR off ebay several weeks ago for ROR, a bunch of wacky stuff happened, i thought for sure my problems would be fixed today, turns out the PSVR is probably defective, and now i'm just kind of thinking "ah, screw it" and just going through and watching a let's play of the game. i know it's probably an amazing experience to see this world in first person, and a lot of fun to deal with all the puzzles yourself, but what i am most interested in in the psychonauts universe is the story. and i have been yearning for this story FOREVER and i need it BAD. so on the one side, if i just decided not to wait to get my PSVR situation worked out and just watched a let's play or several let's plays instead, i could quell my thirst for that sweet sweet psychonauts story. but on the other side, one of my favorite things in psychonauts was using every power and every item on everyone to an obsessive extent, and i'm probably not likely to find a lot of that in a let's play. i just don't know what to do!! to those of you who have played rhombus of ruin, is this worth waiting several more weeks for to play myself?
  2. 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.
  3. 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?
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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
  7. 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.
  8. will the next update be this month, i wonder, or in january? i am officially jonesing for more psychonauts content!
  9. 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!
  10. 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.
