Picross makes no sense to me

Today is the four-est day ever. Take that, Genesis.

FUCK PRE-ORDER BONUSES!

Posted by RobotHamster

Pretty good, can't believe Jeff finally allowed Red Dead an award.

Posted by Ventilaator

The fact that 3 of them were seemingly discovering Picross for the first time in this video highlights exactly what I don't like about their awards process.

Wow... horrible DS selection, IMHO.  And I'm a huge puzzle gamer.
 
Professor Layton and the Unwound Future
Super Scribblenauts 
9 Hours, 9 Persons, 9 Doors 
Dragon Quest IX 
Shantae: Risky's Revenge 
Etrian Odyssey III
 
 
Really, just a horrible 2010 DS game selection.

I have finished the regular Picross puzzles and filled up my allotment of downloaded puzzles and deleted about half of those and filled it back up and still have a few packs to download from online and am loving every minute of Picross 3D. And you can tell Jeff hasn't gotten past beginner, because some of those hard levels take the full hour to complete. Fortunately, you can close the DS and it suspends the timer until you open it back up.

Jeff: "There is a limit to how big your thing can be" 
Vinny: "Yep"  
 
Looks extremely addicting. They should make numbered blocks in Minecraft as well, so we can enjoy it there too!

There's spoilers in the Deliberation podcast for Red Dead? D'aww. :(
 
Can anyone tell me when. I'd really like to not have that game spoiled for me.

"YOU make the penis!" 
 
*sigh* i love you guys.

I think I've played Picross 3D more than any other game this year.

@dudacles no red dead redemption spoilers, though they do spoil ending of alan wake.

Picross 3D! 
Totally deserves it.

It's like the one thing with 3D in it's name that isn't stupid.

Right back at you.

Another day, another challenge.

Posted by piderman

For those wondering, it's 369 regular puzzles and already over 200 downloadable puzzles, excluding tournament puzzles. So you get a lot of bang for your buck. Get it!

You know you can quicksave in the menu right?
Posted by ashbash

Well deserved game. I still play Picross 3D to this day! 
 
In fact I completed all the puzzles 2 months ago and had a 2 month break and have started fresh again 2 weeks ago! Even though I've played each puzzle once before, the 2 month break is enough to make me forget the solutions and so it's great fun a second time round.

@cgoodno: 
 
OK. :(

While I agree that Picross 3d is the best game, I almost wish that Super Scribblenauts won. It made a hell of a funny quick look earlier this year.

Chuck Green should have been a shoe-in.  Why not party with this guy?

+1 on Chuck!  I bet he can shotgun a beer like a pro.  Also, he's seen some messed up stuff.  
 
I actually feel that category could have had a lot of great contenders.  That said, elusive man is a great choice.  I'd love to party w/him myself.

I guess 999 came out too late to be considered. That game is incredible.

i got Picross 3D for my mum for her birthday in july and she's only just stopped playing it because i got her a new professor layton for christmas. needless to say i often steal her DS when she's not playing it.

That is why they do quicklooks and such. If you are relying on their top picks as the one game you will buy, ever, then that is understandable. This is mostly a gemers' web site. As gamers themselves, the GB crew members don't all play the same games, just like people not reviewing games. Therefore, watch the quicklooks, read the reviews, and decide for yourself. That is the best part about this site, besides the humor and copious amount of video. They let you decide. Also, they have a pretty wide range of tastes represented.

@PerfidiousSinn: Indeed, it is far and away the one of the best games this year, and certainly the best on the DS.

I can verifty that Picross 3D is very good. I think Jeff praises it a bit too much but it was an enjoyable little game to play on my holidays.

Edited by nukesniper

I played every single puzzle in Picross 3D, and I can say that I was TOTALLY PUMPED when I heard them mention it in the podcast. Yes. Hundreds of hours later, I can say Picross 3D is awesome. 396 (?) puzzles are no joke. Sure they start taking 20-40 seconds, but near the end of the game they can take 20+minutes and you still earn full score for doing them.

Totally diserves the GOTY for DS exclusives. Watching this makes me want to go grab my DSi, which still has Picross 3D in it.

I've just watched the Picross 3d quick look, who would've thunk? :D

Picross is brilliant. No better choice I think. Still, looking forward to catching up on the podcasts.

Posted by Dizzyhippos

Picross 3DS anyone?

Posted by allenibrahim

Picross 3D is apparently $10 at the Best Buy at the next town over. I almost got it on Black Friday for $20, but I wasn't willing to throw down for it because I thought I would never get past any levels. Looks simpler than I thought!

Posted by Korolev

Actually I agree that RDR might have the better story. Mass Effect 2 has a wonderful universe, wonderful characters, wonderful writing, and as exciting as the events look in the ME2 storyline, the story was still "Shepard fights evil aliens". The story of ME2, while being perfectly fine, isn't exactly very original - Shepard kicks evil ass, collects great allies and goes to kick an even bigger evil alien ass.  
 
I haven't played RDR, but I have read the plot, and although I don't think I care much for the RDR universe or many of the characters or many of the settings, the story is more complex than ME2's.  
 
I still want ME2 to win game of the year though.

Picross 3D on the 3DS is the only thing that could convince me to buy one. Vinny must have just been slamming poetry on his Mac.
