Continuity: Clothes and Divesuits SPOILERS

posted by WARP10CK on - last edited - Viewed by 503 users

During the swimming bit how the hell did they hide their clothes and when they resurfaced all their clothes had magicly returned.

Wouldnt them still being in the divingsuits after surfacing make more sense ??
Not to mention the shaving cream can and Nimas backpack, there is suspension of disbelief that then there is lazy story writing.

Come on telltale what the hell you were the saviours of classic adventure gaming

    Yeah but that´s the monkey island universe and Michael Crichton the author of Jurassic Park actually researched the idea of cloning dinosaurs and the response he got from scientist, that specalized in genetics was that it might be possible.

    But the international laws on genetics are probably not gonna allow for that to happen.

    And in my opinion should not happen.

  • Its actually not possible.. any DNA even in a mosquito would have degraded by now... In fact Jack Horner famous as a consultant on Jurassic Park.. and a key inspiration for the character of Alan Grant has said the only thing you WOULD be able to clone from this method is a room full of mosquitos.. and we have enough of them already.

  • Basically it's theoretically possible to clone a dinosaur, the problem being getting the material to clone from in which Crichton took some liberties - he was after all writing science fiction.

  • @Sinaz20 said: It's just a continuity thing that we have to say 'leave well enough alone' to.

    JD, after you worked on the best TT episode since Tales ep.4, we can forgive you anything! :D
    Seriously - and not detracting from the others - the last episode was by far the most well directed. I loved the night talking with Nima (one of the best dialogues of the game), the camera direction, and some of the puzzles were finally a little bit harder - thus satisfying to solve!

    Telltale with JP has shown their maturity on how to write a emotional and strong story.
    Now it's time to start to REALLY improve the technical side - or the next time we'll still cannot recognize an incendiary granade.
    Ever thought to rent an external engine?

    BTW, congrats! :)

    He is not a genetics expert (no more than I am) and this article is really interesting which Horner actually speaks on the subject.

    But to quote Ian Malcolm : Your scientist was so preoccupied with wether or not they could, they didn´t stop to think if they should.

  • If there is a continuity issue with this so close to the end of the game... why not just leave them in their wetsuits?

    Just kinda curious.. I mean the end is a hop skip and a jump from there anyway.

  • I would let them with the swimsuits.....

    Another continuity issue is... Where the hell Nima kept the bag with the canister while she was swimming? I'm pretty sure she is not carrying it while swimming. :/

  • I thought they where using Drysuits... When i did scuba diving in Norway i had to war a shirt, sweater, whool pants and whool socks not to freeze to death.

    So for me the only continuity error in that episode was "where was the canister during the swimming", "How did they get the shoes with em" and "They should be wet around the neck line of their clotes and the hair would be more messy", other then that i didnt see that much problem (BUT i cant remember if they said anything about "Dry suits" or "Wet Suits" before they went swimmin :\

  • ^^ She probably stuffed it inside her suit.

    Just a guess...

  • @AndrewF said: ^^ She probably stuffed it inside her suit.

    Just a guess...

    the answer to this question is that they were probably in dry suits...in which case they had no need to remove clothing...they didnt have buoyancy compensators like typical divers. and jess mentions that buoyancy is controlled via the suit...something only found in a dry suit used by tec divers....
