Apparently, a lot of people have been able to get to rank 100 (or more if they cheat). I think I managed the late 60's by the time I got to the meat circus.

I got to late 70's. I'm at rank 82 now, and I'm still trying to get the last one figment in Gloria's Theatre, the last one figment in the Milkman Conspiracy, and... yeah.

Wasn't there a bonus movie clip if you get to rank 100?

Yes there is, it's not overly important to watch, but still highly entertaining and well worth getting the rank (or getting a bink viewer off the internet to watch the movie yourself like I did :p )

I've beat the game on day 5 and started from the point of no return and beat it 100% on day 7. :) If you go to the collective unconscious after u beat the game 100% you will see a message floating in the air saying Congratulations 100% complete psychomaster

I'm taking the opposite approach on my latest game. I've just met Boyd, and I'm at rank 9. And I'm only that high because there's some figments you just can't avoid.

That's rad.

Although I am wondering whether you can complete the game without levitation and pyrokenesis, which you certanly need to get a higher rank for.

The bit with Oleander in the tank

Yeah. I just rememberd I need invisibility to enter the Rainbow Squirt house and telekenisis for the nightmare to get through The Milkman Conspiracy.

I'll guess I'll have to cave in and get to level 30 before I can continue on.

(Did you mean telekenisis and pyrokenesis, cause you get levitation from Milla)

Joshi

Oh, yeah, sorry, telekenisis.

Pyrokenesis is also needed for the fight against the phantom in Gloria's head.

I just tried to use the door on Boyd, and got this message from Agent Cruller:

I'm getting the feeling that you won't get too far with this fella until you earn the power of TELEKINESIS. You'll earn that power at RANK 20. Do you want to jump in and try?

They thought of everything.

Joshi

I can't remember needing Telekenisis in Boyds brain... odd.

Dinglekins

I had to buy a cobweb duster in order to go into Boyd's mind. As for Telekenisis... um. Let me think. I can't remember needing to use it, either!

Joshi
08-13-2005, 09:05 PM
My first time playing the game I didn't have the cobweb duster, got so far and then had to leave Boyds head and collect more arrowheads in the night. Really annoying, but there ya go.

You didn't need TK, but you needed to be at the TK rank to use the duster. Don't know why they didn't just say that.

I think the only time they recomend you to use TK in that level is when your fighting that crazy cookie lady in the end. Other then that I don't remember using it either.

Joshi

I didn't use TK then, I just psi blasted her.

What about the nigtmare battles? Don't you need TK to put one of the bomb things in it? Or is there some other way.

Udvarnoky wins!

Joshi

Yep, guess so.

Ooh...yea. I forgot about the nightmares.

Yea...so did I for the first half of the battle. I did use TK for the second half because Psi blast wasn't working so well when I couldn't see her.

Not to be a jerk, but I said what TK was for a while ago

Yeah. I just rememberd I need ... telekenisis (was spoilered)for the nightmare(end spoiler) to get through The Milkman Conspiracy.


Trying to be the game with a low rank is turning out not to be such a great idea. As Joshi mentioned you need the cobweb duster to get through a door. And as you need to be at level 20 to buy it, it prevents you from trying to take on the Nightmare without TK. So now I'm stuck having to collect a bunch of figments and arrowheads in order to advance.

It looks like I'll have to resign myself to beating the game at Rank 30. Probably more like 40 since it's nearly impossible to avoid all the figments.

I think I beat it at 35...and that was with actually semi trying to find all of the figments. This was only because I had it for a week though and really wanted to get through it. I'm buying it this friday and playing it again :^:
