I don't think you're missing out on much if you went with the $160 tier. To be completely honest, my initial reaction was disappointment when I found dozens of pictures, including my own, in the School for Savants. The quotes are great, but over the past year I had built up a certain expectation in my mind that all of our pictures would be scattered throughout the entire game and that they would be more tied into the flow of the game rather than being lumped together into larger side diversions in the form of a couple first-person perspective photo albums. At least I'm in good company in the savant school.Thaurin wrote:All this talk of your photos in the game. Well, at least I have a mention in the credits. *sigh*
My wife also liked the quotes and thought it was awesome seeing the pictures in the game, even though she did question the entertainment value of a game in which you roam around (aimlessly, to her) in a 3D world clicking on things and watching what are basically video clips from a movie. I think her exact words were something like, "So that's the game? You just click on things and watch videos?" She'd rather just watch it seamlessly as a feature-length movie, without all the hard work!
Getting to the bigger picture: Yes, I found my photo and I liked Tex's comment. Yeah, I'm still disappointed at how the majority of photos were incorporated; but creating a new Tex adventure in the first place was no small feat, so any disappointment over the photos is just being a little nitpicky in the grand scheme of things.
