Please for the life of me I have no idea what game mechanic it is?!

#2 Posted by Arrested_Developer (735 posts) -

Me either, I tried point and click and even tried looking up "Mario Teaches Typing" but no luck, I can tell I'm not even close.

@demontium:  think about each of the other quests in the set, particularly the phrasing used to describe the transition between each quest. Pay attention to the differences (not gameplay/hardware related) between each of the consoles featured as well.

@Arrested_Developer:
I tried point and click also!! Thats crazyness.
 
In other news, I have no fucking clue.

#5 Posted by Arrested_Developer (735 posts) -

I just got it from a great clue in another thread.  The clue was "Marty McFly would do it". 

#6 Edited by SandwichApoc (87 posts) -

Transition and continuum. Games like Time Splitters, Startropics II, and Mario is missing have this concept.

I have no idea I just discovered this quest stuff.

Read the quest descriptions for the other quests. What are you suppossedly doing in all of the quests?

#10 Posted by Patman99 (1620 posts) -

If you are still stumped read SandwichApoc's hint, it lays it out perfectly.

Note: it is not a time machine. That's far off.

#12 Posted by The_Aus_Hulk (39 posts) -

This is a great clue!

 HINT: Get the Delorean ready! 

#19 Posted by Ubiquitous (571 posts) -

Yeah, this always made sense, I am dumb.

#20 Posted by CptChiken (1987 posts) -
@Arrested_Developer: I got it from that clue too, its a rather good one

Holy dam if people cant get it from that HUGE hint then they are obviously brought up with a 360/PS3 and online in hand. Just completed the set, tbh had to have a decent think about the secret one then it sprung into my mind randomly. LOVE THE QUEST SYSTEM!

I wish I could go back to the past...and not be modded.  :P

#23 Posted by BetterCallSaul (1 posts) -

 My favorite part of this quest set.

@Willy105:  Although, the reference is a little off, since they didnt really (*insert answer to the quest here*) in the show
#30 Edited by Willy105 (4691 posts) -

I love Back to the Future, but the quest is about this.
 
@innovacious said:

" @Willy105:  Although, the reference is a little off, since they didnt really (*insert answer to the quest here*) in the show "


Yes they did. The whole show was about *answer to quest* and trying to fix what went wrong with the *mechanic regarding to answer to quest*.
 
Also, Ziggy is Al's computer.
#31 Posted by SBYM (1219 posts) -

I also tried point and click before finally getting it. :/

#32 Posted by Kt0wnK1llah (4 posts) -

Wow I am actually retarded...... the answer was so simple!

#33 Posted by UnsolvedParadox (1867 posts) -

Just got it, thanks!

#34 Edited by atomic_dumpling (2482 posts) -

That's pretty silly. I tried "try and error" and "research" because that's what I did. Is there even a concept page for "try and error"? Well, I got it now, but really … I guess it should have been obvious to me because it's in all the hints.

#35 Posted by Winternet (8051 posts) -

Donnie Darko. Or Darkest of Days. And no, it's not D&D =)

#36 Posted by Bongos (186 posts) -

I had to check my watch to see if I was in the right decade after going through this quest.

This almost made it too easy, but thanks

Now you know how the rest of us feel!
It is perhaps a bit too obvious, eh? :)
#39 Posted by ToxicFruit (1718 posts) -

wow just got it :P first I tried to search for reading but then I though "What have I been doing all this time".

#40 Posted by RoboRobb (1054 posts) -

Jesus Christ I'm such a dumbass, thanks for the help guys!

#41 Posted by Nasar7 (2789 posts) -

Just got this one, thanks for the hints.

#42 Edited by abdo (1043 posts) -

Guess I'm the only one who got it right straight away. Reading all the quest details, it seemed pretty straightforward what we're dealing with here. I had a harder time figuring out launch titles to an ancient woodgrain console.
 
You guys can't be serious. It's RIGHT THERE. How can you not figure it out?

#43 Posted by PK_Koopa (583 posts) -
@abdo: 
Same. Although I actually did the secret quest before any of the other ones because I just looked at the descriptions.
#44 Posted by mrsmiley (1145 posts) -

I tried tons of other concepts, like "cheating" or "research" haha. Thx for the original Marty McFly hint!

#45 Posted by ComradeCrash (572 posts) -
@Arrested_Developer: Thank you! After running around like crazy it finally made sense.
#46 Posted by VilhelmNielsen (1743 posts) -

Thought I hadn't gotten it, but then I totally had. Easiest quest set so far.

#47 Posted by BigBob (54 posts) -

Hah.  They're tricky.  I kept looking up "cheating" or "wikipedia" or "internet" or something.

#48 Posted by moocow21 (23 posts) -

Yeah, I got it from the Marty Mcfly hint; although for anybody who has ever even heard of him that's more of a dead giveaway than a clue.

#49 Posted by Urmean (599 posts) -

Welp, time to go back to the future.

#50 Posted by Hadoken101 (871 posts) -

It took me a while to figure it out because I thought the answer was a little TOO obvious, so I didn't bother trying it.
