Fez!!!

Holy crap, how awesome is this game.

I just bought it yesterday and I'm in love. It totally nails the feel of the old days with incredible atmosphere and interesting mechanincs. It''s funny. cute, stylish and fun. The music just adds a cherry on top.

Pick it up people. It's only 800 as well.



For a long time most DLC games weren't my cup of tea. But this month alone they totally make up for it. Journey and Sine Mora are totally brilliant (still need to play Journey, but it looks awesome and is a surefire sale when I have some games out of the way), and now this one. Even if it's been in production for years I still didn't see it coming already.

Not yet. And no word on if or when it will be, to my knowledge.

This and Journey have kept me away from retail releases. I love this game.

Game is fucking awesome, but does have some serious technical issues. It's actually broken for me at the moment. I will probably just start a new game, but it sucks. When I load my game it immediately crashes to the dashboard. There's not even enough time for me to exit the room.

Funny because in the intro there is a horrible bug that's actually part of the game. Ironic.

The demo is a horrible indicator of the game. Just buy it, it's really great.

The game is great (sans the map, an example where style gets in the way of function) so far. Does anyone else get stuttering when going through doors that transfer you into map in the background? I guess it could be loading related, but the visuals don't seem like they would tax a 360 that much.

I have stuttering all the time, very annoying. Cool game, but I can't say I like it that much.

The sad thing is that I'm pretty sure they were aware of these bugs before the game was released.

Just finished and I quite enjoyed it. The music was my favourite part. Is it deadmau5? It sounds just like the minecraft soundtrack but I didn't notice his name in the credits.

I didn't get all the collectibles and when I went back to the main menu after the credits I was annoyed to see no continue option, but after sitting through the intro again of New Game + I thankfully was able to continue with the collectibles I had so far.

I was annoyed at first for having to sit through the intro again (as at first it wouldn't give me access to my inventory and I thought I'd lost everything), but everything was made right when (unlock spoilers):

at the point that your Fez comes down from the heavens, you already have it so the "deal with it" sunglasses come down instead, and you unlock first person view mode! It's pretty amazing to see the game from such a different POV.

I will definitely play some more and try and collect everything.

I noticed there's a few QR codes in the game; the first one I found scanned fine but the second one is hidden behind some BG elements and I couldn't get a clean scan. Anyone figure out how to get that one?

EDIT: As soon as I posted I figured out how to get it... Sneaky. I quite like how the game doesn't hold your hand with a lot of the secret things like the treasure maps. Makes figuring them out very satisfying. I bet the unintelligible language in the game can also be transliterated if you use the hints on some of the walls. Think I will leave that up to some more dedicated players, though...

Yeah, the 4th wall shartering mystique makes the game a lot more interesting.
