A shocking 14:52 for todays. How i didn't see it before i don't know. I was hung up on the middle word of the title. I went for conventional words which threw me.

17th Feb now done just the quote for 18th as i have the film title.
[/quote]

can you give me a clue for the 17th of Feb one? This is my last puzzle and it's killing me..

Feb 17th

[spoiler]the 2nd 3 letter word is the same as the one in the film title and is one of the most common. That should give you a letter of the 1st 3 letter word and get you going[/spoiler]

Argh,
[spoiler] I'm presuming we're all talking about the word being 'the' which leaves me with a three letter word with a h in the middle, or Shy, Why, (can't be anything else can it?) but then that puts a y in some obviously wrong places.. (like the second letter of the first word of the film) ironically I already Sussed the 'the' because of the case[/spoiler]

Have you got the title of the film? That's pretty key to that one. There are only two letters amongst the first five, and you're obviously looking for a vowel and a consonant. You could probably just go through all the combinations and it wouldn't take that long, but to make it quicker try and work out whether in xyxyyz, x is more likely to be a vowel or whether y is.

After you've got the title (the last letter is obvious, once you've got the rest) you should have some letters in a few of the three-letter words in the quote, and you can start playing around with what they can be.

Another thing you might find useful for this puzzle and others...

[SPOILER]... is to try substituting common letters. So see what letters in your quote are common, and change them to letters that are common in English, so vowels, and S, etc, then see if any words jump out.[/SPOILER]

I've managed to do a few more now, slowly getting better (maybe). 17th february is one of the two I've got left; can anyone tell me the third letter of the first three letter word? Just can't think what it could be.

Have you had a go at working out the last word of the title? You've filled some letters in already, and there really aren't many things it could be. You've got three of the five letters, just try different letters at the start and the word should jump out at you.

:lol:

Keep trying. As soon as the first letter's in place you'll be able to see the word, since you'll have nearly all of it. It's fairly well known as well, that last word should be the key to the rest of it unless you live under a rock.

This is the first letter in that last word, LAST RESORT.

That made all the difference.

Also I felt like a massive idiot when I realised what the two letter word in the title was. :facepalm:

Cheers!

As a starting point, look at the first word. There's a pattern of capitalisation there that means it can really only be one type of word, and there's only really one possibility for those first two letters.

If you get those two (and [b]a[/b]) you'll have the middle part of a four letter word later in the quote. I think this one's pretty easy if you work out (and have seen) the film, but difficult if you haven't.

I did today's quickly too - 1.51, first time I've been under 2 minutes. On the opposite end of the scale, I'm up to 51 minutes on February 17th and I'm still stuck:

[spoiler]Is the first word in the quote 'the'? I thought the second three letter word and the title were 'the' but I've been told differently. Any help that would be much appreciated. Also, is this a famous film? I just can't think what it is. This one is driving me mad.

Have you tried to think what "2-abcd" might be? What words can be presented like that in a way that makes sense?

Cheers, but the only thing I can think of is:

[spoiler]
2-time, which doesn't seem to make much sense as that leaves hardly any e's in the quote and title. Gah, total love/hate thing with this game!

    • BoxBoy! + BoxBoy! sequel announced
      By Keyboard Koala
      This one got a bit lost amidst all the Nintendo Direct news from last week...   A black and white puzzle platformer, with a simple but bold presentation and with a very strong core mechanic: you create boxes in different directions from your, well... box-shaped-hero (Hakoboi actually means litt. ''Box Boy''), to interact with the world and solve puzzles. And you jump. And that's it.   It looks so simple at first, and it's the classic game that's difficult to explain by words as is easy to grasps while watching the trailer or, better,  playing it. By the end of the video this core mechanic gets applied in some astounding ways, opening up an inordinate amount of possibilities, driven by clever game and level design. As per Hal's trademark development skills.   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Obs7JBp3pZ4   A Euro release is a big unknown at the moment.

      By strawdonkey
      Spoiler-free zone! Please keep all spoilery content for previous games in the 999/VLR thread



      Source
       
      [attachment=64716:ze3.png]
       
      Announced at Anime Expo 2015, seemingly out of nowhere. Expected Summer 2016 for Playstation Vita and Nintendo 3DS.
       
      Following Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors and Virtue's Last Reward, the announcement of the third game in the Zero Escape series is quite a shock. After poor sales of VLR, the series' creator, Kotaro Uchikoshi took to Twitter with a dedicated English-language account to explain the current situation - even looking into Kickstarter, which at the time couldn't be utilised by residents of Japan.
       
      Then, silence; Uchikoshi was working on some other products, including the writing credit for an anime ("Punch Line", which seems to revolve around looking at pants - [url=http://www.crunchyroll.com/punch-line]watch it on Crunchyroll[/url]! or, don't), and the Zero Escape trail went quiet.
       
      One day earlier in the year, this happened - a seemingly-random dump of information that was quickly picked apart. A website (4infinity.co) which contained some snippets hidden in its metadata. A website that now links to the Aksys Twitch channel, where the game was announced.
       
      :wub:
       
      Not much more info to go on, but I'll keep this updated as news rolls in. The only video I could find of the AX reveal is below, but expect a proper trailer soon I guess:

      What's a Zero Escape?

      Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors and Virtue's Last Reward, the first two entries in the Zero Escape series, are visual novel-style room escape adventures*, and are best experienced as spoiler-free as possible. It's generally recommended to play them in order, though I can confirm it's not essential as someone who played VLR first.
       
      Both games begin with a protagonist who awakes to find themselves trapped in an unfamiliar location, wearing a strange watch-like device on their wrist. Progress is broadly split into two parts - Room Escape puzzles and Visual Novel segments. For those who haven't played a Room Escape-style game before - put simply, you're trapped in a room, and must solve puzzles to escape, by hunting for clues and interacting with the environment.
       
      The Visual Novel segments are what really bring the game to life, though - unravelling the mystery of how you came to be trapped in a mysterious location, discovering the other eight people who share your fate, and seeking a way out. Your choices during these segments will decide your fate, potentially that of your companions, and perhaps even six billion others.

    • Pullblox - Fallblox - Pullblox World - Fullblox
      By Keyboard Koala
      Confirmed for a 3DSWare release this December, is Intelligent Systems' (Advance Wars, Fire Emblem) Pullblox (aka Pushmo in the US, or Hiku Osu in Japan).



      The storyline finds a short, pudgy boy named Mallo (formerly: Maro) who has discovered that his hometown has been covered in blocks. He then takes it upon himself to climb up these giant structures to claim flags placed on their peaks...
      Pullblox is all about moving blocks in order to reach those flags. As the title implies, you pull (or push) blocks and create a path to climb them and navigate the stage until you reach the goal. The game's supposed to have over 250 courses.

      The game's also leveraging old-school Nintendo nostalgia by using classic 8-bit NES sprites as levels. There's even a level editor included so you can make your own old-school homages.
