    FlairYourFuel's The Talos Principle (PC)

    [January 14, 2017 08:33:58 PM]
    Started The Talos Principle today and played for approximately an hour. Getting started, the game runs really well and reminds me a lot of Portal and Portal 2. Other than that, it's a basic puzzle game, not really difficult and fun to play.

    Getting into the story in regards to class, not much has occurred yet. There is a narrating voice that ends up telling you essentially that you can wander the world as you please, just do not ascend the tower. Said tower is really tall, goes up into a bunch of dark clouds, and is surrounded by electricity. So I have the feeling that despite the scary voice, the player will have to ascend the tower.

    This brings me to trying to connect it with the class this far. The narrator says not to climb the tower because it will cause bad stuff to happen. Despite that I'm still tempted by curiosity and wanted to climb the tower the first chance I got. This brings me to an interesting observation though, the player can't save the game; it only autosaves. I think this was done on purpose because the fact I can't save before seeing what's up the tower is the only reason I haven't done it yet.

    A better connection to class is so far we've only started talking about identifying the argument, and different parts of the question, or the premises and the conclusion. The premise I can identify at this point of the game is:

    Going up the tower is bad for your people

    And the conclusion is:

    Don't go up the tower

    I still think I'll have to go up the tower, just a hunch.
