Speaking of wishes, I'd like to have a new and revamped treasure hunt. Bigger and better!
And I'd also like to see Agent Crueller's youth (since we've already had tidbits of the stories of all the other Psychonauts).
It is a somewhat vague term. It typically refers to two types of relationship (though if you have one, you usually have the other)
1) Anything that has "another half" that it joins with to make some kind of whole has a counterpart. So in a crimefighting duo, the sidekick could be said to be a counterpart. Spouses are counterparts. The heads and tails side of a coin are counterparts, etc.
2) Anything that has something separate and discrete from itself that works in cooperation or toward the same end. The crimefighting duo analogy kinda works here as well, since Batman and Robin are technically two different people, and yet they are both doing the same sort of thing with the same sort of goal. You could also say that [ham and cheese] are counterparts in the context of a sandwich.
So.. two parts of some kind of broader unit. But the two parts or two halves don't have to be strictly identical. That's my native speaker sense of it.
So in this case my suspicion is that it refers to "other NPCs that play a similar role to Sasha/Milla", but who may or may not be major characters. But psychonauts 1 didn't really have any inconsequential characters in the hub, so I'm sure they will have at least some character.
I guessed right then. In my native language the word has a slightly different meaning. Citing from the dictionary, it means: "in every process, it is the antagonist part"
If you look at the second piece of concept art on the Fig site (showing the HQ from the outside), there is an arrow in the lower left corner pointing to "Camp", so I think the game will probably feature some known areas but probably not all.
I hope at least some of the other campers are back, but I am pretty sure, we will not see all of them.
Good news then
Hope to see my fav character again (Dogen)
