Default Talos Principle Speculation Thread

Mass migration of Portal fans?

Mass "they stoyle dis from portal 2" from Portal fans?

Mass creation of Portal fans?

Is this the new Portal?

Will this outshine Sam instead, and Croteam become more focused on milking the shit out of this?


But most importantly....

I bet a copy of Daikatana that CT will tease something about Sam in the game. I'm very sure of it.

Lol nope, not sure why you think Croteam is out to "milk" anything in the first place. Someone thinking Croteam is milking their games for money is just showing ignorance.

Personally, I think it seems like an interesting game... And I usually don't care at all for puzzle games.

I'm scared of those Portal fanboys, I can bet they will shit about Talos Principle. Don't get me wrong, I love Portal. It's an awesome game. But, fanboys.

Dunno, but a lot of butthurt people will complain about it being a Portal clone, only because it's a first person puzzle game. **** this shit.

These days, any puzzle game is a Portal clone.

You know, I hear that small dev teams usually have all their different series set in the same universe. So it's possible that Talos, Serious Sam, Football Glory, and all the other games CT made are set in this one big universe.

Maybe there will be a SS easter egg in Talos or a Talos easter egg in SS4, ie "That is one doomed space marine" from DN3D.

There was actually an article somewhere how the game wasn't pretentious, just intellectual.

And I still say it to this day: SS was never mindless.

It is if you don't care about reading netricsa. And 90% of players don't care. In Talos it's different - it's a story driven game, you can't get around not following the story (players hate reading)

I wonder if players really hate reading, seeing more and more games have in-game stashes of lore and encyclopaedias, especially the more popular AAA games.

Beta is starting soon, so you might see some others from the forum playing it. I recommend not asking them about the game, they are under NDA.

Writers get too excited and write so much they don't know what to do with it. Games have been doing it for ages, by the way, it's nothing new.

Still can't say that it's really just there because writer's dump, really. I'm pretty sure many people like to read them, just like many people like to read lore in RPGs and whatnot.

I like to read lore bits from time to time but some games really do overdo it. Dragon Age for instance. I think I've only read 10% of the lore in that game's codex even if I check it sometimes when I discover something. There's small novels for every bit of detail there.

But hey, can't hurt those who do read them I guess, as long as they're interesting and don't feel like they had to describe something for the sake of describing.

Ugh, lore like in Serious Sam is fine, but if you infodump them like in Mass Effect than it's just a bore for mindless people like me. I'd say the lore pieces in SS are just fine enough and properly thrown at you at the right time to need feel forced.

Sometimes simple lore like http://i2.kym-cdn.com/photos/images/original/000/039/099/ruabadenoughdude.jpg is just good enough.

First thing that i see that is going to be problem for "Portal fanboys" is that box that you can use to put on pedals from trailer (0:20 trailer), it is really similar to one from Portal, they just gonna **** our brains out so much because of that, i already see that.

Tbh though I've never seen "portal fanboys" before, I always took it the way that the biggest Portal fans have a really open mind (due to the fact that the game is a puzzler, people who play it should at least have a little bit of intelligence)
