Which puzzles stumped you in Season 1? (Spoilers, obviously)

posted by Armakuni on - last edited - Viewed by 370 users

I just finished Season 1 again, been replaying some Telltale games recently.
Even though the difficulty level was easy in this season, there were still a few puzzles that stumped me. By stumped, I mean I was stuck for over 15-30 minutes where I had no idea what to do and was trying clicking on everything etc.

So here goes -

* Episode 4 - getting the "Give me everything" poster (for the tax question).. this is because I was so used to there being nothing useful down that alley so I didn't think to check.

* Episode 6 - opening the door to the shuttle. I just didn't try picking up the TV antenna for some reason.

* Episode 6 - paying Bosco. I was certain those objects in the closet were just there as souvernirs from earlier episodes and it took me quite a while before I (out of desperation) tried to do anything with those.

There might have been some more but I can't think of it at the top of my head.
Anyway, as you can see, there is a pattern to what made me stuck.. it's all because of the episodic nature of these games. I'm not used to searching the same areas over to see if anything useful has appeared there when there was nothing useful in those areas in previous episodes.

So were you people stuck anywhere in the first season?

  • Episode 4 - "Free Home Delivery" sign, I had found the "Give Me all You've Got" poster and thought the rest of the answers were in the stack of cards already prepared.

    Episode 5 - Getting Bosco out of Reality 2.0. I can't believe I didn't think to use the sword he'd just given me for the longest time!

    Episode 5 - Reality 1.5, who'd ever have thought you could "get Bosco's" or "use Bosco's with lake". This one's up there with "Throw baby".

    It's funny multiple people have mentioned the key for the lunar lander. As soon as Sam said they'd locked the key inside, I thought, where's a coat hanger? Hey, I think there's one serving the TV as an antenna!

    Episode 6 - Tic Tac Doom! Seriously, you have to throw the game?

    Episode 6 - Getting a trillion dollars. What exactly am I supposed to do to make the USA more valuable? Surely I can do this first and worry about Hugh Bliss later.... Hmm, wanton violence and destruction doesn't seem like it will help me with this one.

  • actually i really only had trouble with one puzzle all year... and that was knocking out specs in episode one... for some reason the thought to bonk him on the head with a bowling ball never came to me

    but once i got used to that kind of thinking... the rest of the season was easy for me ;)

    Yeah that stumped me too, particularly since i didnt realise you could look out the window heh

  • Cool avatar, great game :cool:

    But yeah, the first season was too easy.. however, it was still very, very good! Especially the last three episodes!

    Anyway, don't want to get it on topic so please go on and post puzzles that stumped you :)

  • Lets see,

    Episode 4: Using the bug to set up a date with Lincoln and Sybill

    Episode 5: Getting the password for Boscos bank account.

    Episode 6: Paying Bosco.

    Episode 6: Sawing the Shuttles legs off in the final fight.

    Other than that the puzzles all made sense..... in an insane kind of way.

  • Episode 4-Using the carbon dater on the weenies.

    Episode 5-Reality 1.5.

    Episode 6-Getting the hundred trillion dollars.

    The season 2 puzzles were much harder for me.

  • My biggest problem - figuring out how to pull over someone in episode 1! That was the only time I had to check the web site for a hint.

  • Episode 5: I was screwed when that stupid Corporate Presence kept eating everything I was trying to get... "Use Bosco's with Lake"??? I mean, what the heck?!

  • Episode 1: How to beat Brady Culture (I could've sworn I tried all combinations of commands, but I finally looked it up).
    Episode 4: The Army poster--Much too blended in.
    Episode 6: Didn't put two and two together and know to make Leonard Vomit. And using the spoon bending to open the door to Hugh Bliss's lair--I could've sworn I needed Bosco's earthquake machine to shake the bowling ball, but you can't get that until after you get in, I realized.
    Season 2, 2 games in so far, haven't needed even the in-game clues.
