Thanks for the advice guys! Yea, part of the appeal of the game, as far as I can tell, was being part of that blitz of internet detective style madness that was part of the experience when the game first launched. Fez might be a great game regardless but part of the reason why its being mentioned in GOTY lists is because of those crazy times :)
Seeing as I already missed the sale, if nothing else I like goes on sale (I only have a 1000 points), I'll buy Fez! Thanks again guys!
