I'm playing Fez with my wife, and we're really enjoying the secrets. I'd like to finish it, or as much as I can bear, without using a guide or anything to solve the puzzles. The one thing I'd like to know is: are some puzzles temporarily unsolvable? What I mean is, when I encounter a puzzle, do I automatically have everything I need to solve it, or could I be lacking an in game item or ability that makes it possible to solve. I don't want examples, I just want to know if there are puzzles I might encounter that can't be solved till I play further in the game. That way I can stop banging my head against the wall (temporarily).

Thus far, I've yet to encounter a puzzle that couldn't be solved on the spot - but I theorize there are some abilities or something that I'll get later that make other puzzles solvable that are not yet.

Yes.

Some puzzles require interactions in or knowledge from other rooms first. Some require beating the game once (to get a new feature in New Game+ mode). Some require checking the Internet since there are no in-game clues.

I just want to follow up to say thanks. I doubted you at first, but having finished the game I see now that one puzzle was completely unsolvable without the internet. Lame. For the benefit of others, I'll also add that controller vibration is a key (if you turn that off by default like I do). –  EBongo May 1 '12 at 0:27
