So, anyone else surprised that TTG got beaten to the punch here?

I don't know if any of you guys have played Blue Toad Mystery Files, but it is a funny, episodic puzzle based game with cartoonish characters that even look like they are from the TTEngine. Playing it, I am surprised it isn't by them, since it seems so much to me like the type of puzzle game TTG would make if they made one (much more so than Puzzle Agent.)
I liked Puzzle Agent quite a lot, but I think that anyone who likes TTG and also puzzle games needs to play Blue Toad, though it is PS3 exclusive.

Is anyone else surprised that TTG didn't do it first?

  • just reading through, thread derailed by the second post! whooh!

  • @SHODANFreeman said: Actually this thread is only marginally related to Puzzle Agent, and is primarily about Blue Toad Murder Files, which at the end of my post I said looked interesting and that I may try it out. Furthermore, I was replying to a post within the thread wherein an individual was attempting to sling mud at Sony for seemingly no reason with pretty much unfounded claims, so I felt the need to reply to these claims.

    They just got done selling Blue toad for 1.29

    Also if you buy the first episode it unlocks the ability to full upgrade.

    @SHODANFreeman said: BTW, Half of these points are inaccurate now.


    How so? Other then the new midget having built in wifi all of those seem spot on. Controllers still need AA's. There's still random points. There's still a required fee of $50 annually to take your Xbox online. Arcade still has no HDD and PS3 allows you to still use laptop HDD's at will.

    Really? That's cool then, I might buy the first episode later tonight. :D

  • yeah I picked it up when it was a 1.29 then saw there's an upgrade for the full season after I purchased it.

    Wrong!
    Random Points have now been set to intervals similar to that of the cards (400, 800, 1600, 4000)

    Arcade is no longer being made and has been replaced by a 4GB HDD.

    And things still sell for 60, 160, 560, etc. making it easily possible to have wasted points.

    This makes no sense. If someone were smart like me, they'd buy exactly what they need and know what to spend the rest on. My only regret is a 30 Point gamerpic which keeps me at 50 points which can't afford anything.

    That's stupid though. You shouldn't be REQUIRED to spend money in blocks of $5 and only $5. It's horrible, and you know it.

  • So as you see point still stands.

  • @SHODANFreeman said: Xbox 360 requires you to buy an $80 dongle to get wifi access, PS3 has it built in.
    Xbox 360 requires you to pay $50 annually to play online, PS3 has free online play.
    Xbox 360 forces you to buy random amounts of "points" in odd amounts so that if you buy anything that doesn't cost exact increments of 400 points, you end up having points sit around unspent forever, PS3 uses exact currency amounts, added as you need it.
    Xbox 360 wireless controllers require you to buy a battery pack and charger/charge cable or endless AA batteries to use them, PS3 controllers come with built in rechargeable batteries that can be charged with any USB mini cable.
    Xbox 360 arcade had absolutely no hard drive, requiring you to either buy an overpriced and microscopic memory card, or an overpriced hard drive in order to even save or patch a game, and only very recently allowed flash drive support, every PS3 SKU has come with a hard drive, all PS3s have had flash drive support and several have also come with memory card slots in addition to their hard drives.

    Xbox 360 and PS3 games cost exactly the same price on launch, so I don't really know what to make of that comment, unless you're referring to Wii games, which are inherently cheaper to make than 360 and PS3 games due to the lower quality graphics on the Wii meaning less production time in most cases.

    In 4 years of owning a 360, it cost me over $700, in roughly the same amount of time, my PS3 has only cost me $300 for more features.

    How are Sony the ones that have their hand on your wallet?
