Decision Branch List *SPOILERS ABOUND*
« on: March 08, 2013, 04:41:45 AM »
Hi, havent seen it anywhere so I thought we could list all possible "decision branches" for Cognition here. Please post if you know about a decision branch or alternative puzzle solutions not mentioned here. Thanks!

Episode 1:
* You can succeed or fail the wiring puzzle in the prologue, with different outcomes.
* Choose whether Sully or John helps out with interrogation of Robert, they help out with different things.
* You can choose to be a jerk to Terence or not.
* You can decide whether to be a jerk or not to Robert about how you bring him into the office.

Episode 2:
* Choose whether or not to accept the coffee.
* Ending slightly different depending on quiz answers.

Love the sig Goran ;D

I haven't played ep 2 yet

As for Episode 1, mmm.... I suppose you're only listing decisions and not different ways to solve the same puzzle, right?

... *looks at it*

No, it couldn't be. Sully has darker hair than that.

There's at least 5 or 6 more branches in Ep1 :)

CriticalDamage nailed it. My avatar is Robert Cath, the american protagonist from The Last Express. I look a little similar to him IRL (ok not really but I'd like to!). Together with Gabriel Knight 2, The Last Express is my favourite adventure game of all time! It's even been ported to iOS recently :)

Stika: Different ways of solving the same puzzle is also interesting. That's kinda what I did when I chose John over Sully I guess! I remember that John could tell the location of the thai restaurant, Sully probably helps with something else right?

Nice to know! I've only played through the first episode once. So have any of you found the other alternative branches and solutions?

I should replay that game. I remember at the beginning I wasn't too fond of it, but then, it just gets SO good.

Sully helps calm down Robert in the interrogation room.
In theory, there's no difference between theory and practice. In practice, there is.

Pretty much any time you're given a choice of how to respond. Though in most cases, it's pretty obvious what the "right" choice is. Also, whether or not you solve the "wires" puzzle in the intro makes a difference.

There's whether you choose to be a jerk to Terence or not. XD

Here's a freebie: You can decide whether to be a jerk or not to Robert about how you bring him into the office. This changes things a bit.

There's another one in Episode 2, technically, although the effects of it ended up being cut. So unfortunately, you wouldn't really be able to tell, but, the game does track if you played nice with McAdams in the first conversation you had with him, or if you had an attitude and pissed him off.
