Previously on Cognition...
FBI agent Erica Reed has an advantage when it comes to tracking a killer: an unusual set of post-cognitive abilities that help her sense how a crime unfolded. She also has a score to settle with the serial killer who took her brother's life three years ago. But vengeance takes a backseat in Episode 2: The Wise Monkey, when Agent Reed's fellow bureau members become targets. Can she find a deranged killer before it's too late, or is it just a matter of time before Erica herself falls victim to The Wise Monkey?


Happy Gaming!

Thanks for that news, BrownEyedTigre smile

I pledged for this game - but for the disk version - as I want to play it when it's a "complete" game.

Am really looking forward to it, too, but I think I have a veeeeery long wait lol lol lol

Thank you BrownEyedTigre for the news on this - I'm very interested but so behind with games so do prefer, like Mad, to wait until all episodes are completed - the Gabriel Knight comparison is very appealing!!!!

Well, I ordered my season pass from Gamestop and they are telling me that it should be available on 1 Feb. Bummer, wish I'd ordered from someone else.

I always pick the wrong horse. crazy However the good news is that I contacted the Postudios store and they were aware of the delay with gamestop and gave me a coupon to get the games direct from them and I'm downloading as I type this. Fantastic customer relations. I got an answer within hours of my email.

A peculiar thing happened with my download and I thought I'd share it in case anyone else runs into this problem.

When I downloaded the file it would not open and didn't show up as an executable file. I found on their boards that this happens and the quick fix is to rename the file with the suffix .exe and doing this alows the file to open and install the game.

Evidently windows 7 forgets to add the suffix when it downloads the file and you have to put it in manually.

Thanks, Oldman. Someone else did have this problem in the Glitches forum.

Thank you Oldman, I am the other person who had this problem. Now going to download the walkthrough and start the game. I must remember the .exe for the next time.
