A idea for if this makes afull season

Why not release it on the (3)DS? As it does seem like a fun fit for the console (granted it seems fun for any) but it'd also be fun to take it around and get people addicted to it.

    Really? I would have thought sales figures in general are heavily skewed towards PC games. Especially since everybody needs a computer, whereas a DS is something you just buy if you really want it and can spare the money to buy it.

    Most people I've met in my life choose any alternative over PC gaming. Most people are still afraid of PC's yet not consoles.

    And this wikipedia article supports your claim. Well, I'll be damned. I suppose people just prefer a pre-assembled, no-hassle gaming system to a multi-purpose, easily upgradeable system. It makes no sense to me though. :confused:

  • PC gaming has many advantages (no need to choose between alternative brands of console, you can play all the games that run with your system spec and so on...), but there are also a lot of drawbacks for the "average" person.

    I have seen mothers and fathers have problems understanding that DS games could not be played on gameboys, so imagine them trying to get things like system specification and requirements. Besides, there is the installation, sometimes activating the game on-line, and there is always the chance that the game may not work, even if theorically it should, because other things in your system could interfere with it. Moreover, recent PC games have had horrible copy protection system that basically prevented legit owners from playing the game, giving a ridiculously low number of installation and creating problems with the PC, whereas their console counterparts had no hassle. Yes, the same game costs a bit more for console, but you just pop it in and it always works.

    Personally I like both console and PC gaming, for different reasons, but the DS has been the highest selling console of all time, there are millions of potential customers and it is a great possibility for developers. Of course, there are royalties to be paid for developing on the system and other problems, which Telltale will have to take into account, but a game like Puzzle Agent is perfect for portable consoles.

    I agree. I prefer PC but somegames I feel are good for consoles. Like GTA I need a controller. Each have pluses and negatives.

    I garee too,I like PC.

  • I was going to just say I couldn't think of what the 2 screens capabilities could be, but I thought of something:


    Outside of puzzles, one screen has gameplay and the other has the puzzle agent logo

    Whilst playing puzzles, one screen has the rules/instructions and the other has the puzzle.

    I don't own a DS and most likely won't, but while playing puzzle agent I had to keep switching back to the rules since I forgot stuff, so it would be a nice change.

  • Bottom screen could instead just display your stats and such like the ESC menu did.

    What, like that XBox 360 pad that's plugged into my PC? That can be used with GTA right out of the box?

    np: Glitterbug - Swirl (Privilege (Disc 1))

  • Yeah but the Xbox 360 pad is ungoddly uncomfortable to me. Had they allowed other controllers to work with GTA I would've gotten it on PC. Along side console exclusives such as Demon's Souls and SMT series help encourage me to get consoles.
