I really didn't like my short time with the start of The Talos Principle, but after The Witness I think the former might be more my cup of tea. It seems like The Talos Principle really comes into its own after the introductory area that I never got through.
I generally agree with the criticisms I have heard so far.
There are things to love about the game, for sure. It is a distinctive game, if nothing else; and I think there is value in that.
I gave up just a *smidge* too soon on The Witness. Turns out a full replay isn't required for the "true" ending.
I love how clean you can get paint brushes with mineral spirits after using alkyd based paint.
In general using mineral spirits is a PITA compared with cleaning water based paints with water, but the results are significantly better.
The brush on the right was left out for two weeks with no cleaning. I cleaned it yesterday, used it today and just finished cleaning it again.
I'm sure it'll be like new with a few more uses and cleans.
A contextual analysis of a work of art cannot be considered superior to the textual analysis.
I think it's awesome to do a contextual analysis, don't get me wrong; but it is not the more important between the two. I think it *can* be as important; but this is heavily dependent upon what your agenda is.
Oh, Okay, I think I figured out this most recent one now.
That's good; I'll take the blame on it. That leaves just that one treebranch one. :-)
One other puzzle - the missing branch piece in the monastery - was worse. I looked at the guide and saw the piece, and even with that I couldn't see how the actual solution corresponded to the pieces that the game shows you.
I looked at it for a solid couple of minutes trying to figure out how those parts made the solution and I absolutely couldn't connect them.
So far it's just these two puzzles; but it's enough that I'm going to be second guessing solutions from now on.
And it makes me seriously wonder if the regulatory agencies allow the defacto monopolies to occur so that they can levy giant fines after the fact?
