Plot hole, maybe? (spoilers)

While replaying Psychonauts recently, I noticed something odd. During Telekinesis training, when Raz explains to Ford why his father hates psychics, he adds, "The weird thing is, I'm pretty sure he's [his father's] psychic himself." So Raz already knew that his father was psychic that early in the game?

But much later, when Raz's dad tells him, "I used my psychic connection with you to find you," note Raz's (nonverbal) reaction. It seems that he was supposed to NOT know yet at that point.

Anyone else notice this? And by the way, when WAS the last time someone created a topic with actual spoilers in it, anyway?


"This makes me feel like I'm back in high school, which is weird because I'm only ten."

Actually he thinks he's a psychic, so I'm sure a "I knew it!" would've been suitable, I don't think it was a plothole.


I'm done putting links in my signature because every time I do it just links to some old crap I've long since stopped updating.

Maybe he was suprised that he actually used his psychic abilities..or maybe he didn't think they had a psychic connection cause he thought his dad hated him.

MEGAN?!
...
OH MY GOD MEGAN!
I LOVE YOU MEGAN!

...As for the plot hole thing...uhh, yeah. But maybe do you think in Raz's "rarararhate" phase that lasted well until the end of the game that he THOUGHT that his dad wasn't psychic until the complete realization after they beat fake dad?
...
D...did that question make sense at all?

Aww, friendliness.

That's so not a plot hole. Raz is just kinda freaked out tohear his dad say he had no problem with psychics. That they were cool like dat.

I think it wasn't a plot hole.. I mean. He said he thought his dad was psychic but he wasn't sure

and even if he was sure he might have been shocked that his dad actually used his powers after all the psycic bashing he did!

The real plot hole is the fact that Thorny Towers closed down 55 years ago, and that Fred was, apparently, an orderly there.

Although this can be explained away by, hypothetically, Loboto taking mental patients and keeping them there for no reason. And Fred could've been an orderly someplace else.

I dunno. From what I saw from the game I think he was never really an orderly at the asylum...I think Loboto just needed someone to guard the door and he seemed like he could do the best job and not get distracted..

I dunno, I think they were just grabbed from some other asylum somewhere...Crispin too. I bet Fred was already insane when he got him

Also, the Psitanium meteorite crashed only 500 years ago, but apparently (according to the treasure hunt stuff) there were levitating psychic velociraptors. SCAREY!

I love the scavenger hunt descriptions. So funky >>
