  1. I have a few questions. What codec will they use? What container will they be in? I know MP4 has better compatibility with other devices, but MKV has better subtitle and multi-track audio support (which would be good for commentary tracks, if there is one) Also it would be nice to have multiple choices of quality (SD, 720p, 1080p), so people don't have to blow all their bandwidth unless they want to
  2. I used a guide in two spots. The first was for the Mog Chothra fight. I didn't know to use the ladder because I honestly didn't know it was spring loaded, so it never occurred to me that it would open its mouth (I kept trying to entice it with the peach, which apparently I wasn't even supposed to have in my inventory during that part). The second was when looking for propulsion. Because apparently even though I had already clicked on the ice cream spout, I clicked it on the wrong spot so it didn't do anything. So I spent at least 15 minutes wandering around the ship aimlessly after that, got frustrated and consulted google again.
  3. I voted "absolutely not" because honestly after watching the documentary I expected it to be terrible, but it ended up being pretty decent. My biggest gripes are the lack of genuinely challenging puzzles. But games do tend to get harder later on, and we've only seen the first half of the game, so I'll reserve final judgement until Act 2 comes out. (P.S. I agree with Azekiel about Deponia being better than what we've seen so far of Broken Age)
  4. ^Child actors can be annoying if not done right. I think that's why most studios these days just give up and hire adults to voice children characters. But I think there's a certain sort of peanuts-esque charm that's lost if done that way, and I'm glad DF didn't go that route. Rocky's voice sounded great! It doesn't sound as wrong having adults voice teenage characters though. I wonder what Shay and Vela will sound like? Maybe we'll get to hear them in the next doc episode?
  5. the voices sound great! I hope jack black wasn't too expensive to hire
  6. Is the artwork on the website what the actual game looks like? I never thought it would look so nice. I love it
  7. there's a website for it already too: http://www.brokenagegame.com/ is that an in-game screenshot? it looks fantastic
  8. prerelease interviews suggest otherwise. ron gilbert practically got offended when people suggested it was anything other than a classic adventure game (albeit with platform controls), and kept insisting that it was designed with that in mind to me it ended up being neither a great adventure game or a great puzzle platformer. as a mixture of the two it ends up being underwhelming in both areas
  9. http://www.escapistmagazine.com/videos/view/zero-punctuation/6788-The-Cave (Spoilers: he didn't like it)
  10. ^seems pretty important to fix to me, seeing as practically the entire story is told through them
  11. GAME BREAKING BUG in the adventurer's pyramid (Playing with adventurer/time traveler/knight) Bug occurs at the part where you press the bunny button to open the hatch to the room with all the other animal buttons. I was standing on the bunny button as the adventurer, and I stood before the hatch as the time traveler and then switched back to the adventurer and jumped off the button to see if it would close the hatch (I just wanted to see if the button was affecting anything) and when I changed back to the time traveler she was stuck inside the wall. I could move around, and I dropped down further but I couldn't get out until I pressed the kill button. Afterwards I went back to the hatch to the animal button room and jumped inside as the knight, then the hatch closed. The hatch won't open again, and you need two people in that room to progress. I can't get another person in that room. I'm thinking the game thought the time traveler entered that room while I was walking around on the inside of the wall. EDIT: I fixed this by removing "AdventurerBubble_AllInSpikeRoom" from my save file
  12. Uh oh, better not let Ron hear you say that!
  13. The only reason I know what the heck Dizzy is is because Yahtzee Croshaw (the guy that made the Chzo mythos adventure games and does the Zero Punctuation reviews each week) mentions it every time he talks about his favorite childhood games
  14. If this had online co-op it would be a no-brainer purchase for me. But since it doesn't I probably won't get it unless it gets really good reviews. Sorry.
