It’s an important question. Transformers fans have been fighting over Soundwave for decades, not to mention Megatron, who goes from building-sized robot to human-sized pistol.
Given enough time, maybe your body will eventually get there. I had more fun throwing space garbage at the moon and seeing how far the sky box went. Space box?
I’m maybe 10 or so hours into Prey so far, and it’s been tons of fun. I’m avoiding all the Typhon powers and playing through as a straight human so far, because of the warnings about my humanity and whatnot, so I don’t have magical nonsense at my disposal, but I have a sweet laser beam that makes things explode, so…
Quick save is your friend. I’m playing on hard. It’s definitely hard, but if you take your time and quick save a lot, you can be equipped well and also learn from your mistakes. And you can change difficulty at any time without any negative consequences. The game actually makes a point to tell you this. Go for it.…
Man the recycler grenade is an amazing weapon. Great room cleaner and material maker. I would add the material perk should be used ASAP.
Playing it at night with some great headphones makes for one hell of an experience. It really shouldn’t be rushed plus there are areas you never need to explore but have some amazing side quest and lore. The loading is noticeable when you enter a new area but nothing like loads I have seen on some console…
Agree! It’s fun to explore areas after clearing them out. The flavor text on terminals is decent, and the atmosphere is great. The way that bodies are strewn about is great fodder to imagine what happened. Great design. Strong, strong game.
There is sort of an in-game explanation in that some of the researchers suggest that the mimic power (at least as far as the mimics themselves are concerned) does not actually involve adopting the shape of the object, but rather swapping one’s own form with that of a copy of the target item from an alternate reality…
Haha, yeah I used that time to jump back to Twitch really quick and type responses. c: I really loved the game, though. System Shock 2 is great but after 30 or so playthroughs the charm’s gone. I never really gelled with the BioShock games.
Variable density perhaps?
I’m totally excited to sink my teeth into this game!...once I have the funds to do so. I’m thinking about playing the mod Enderal for Skyrim until then. Should fill the time nicely.
(I haven’t played this game nor know much about it, so please take that in mind when reading my comment)
It’s a great game, little disappointed I had to rush it to meet a deadline but it’s fun going back and playing through again at a slower pace. That big terrifying enemy you’re on about though...didn’t find it a problem once, didn’t kill it, just hid, and it seemed unable to make it even up the staircase towards me…
9.8 hours in.
Backtracking is actually interesting; enemies will spawn in areas you’ve already been, so you’ve got to be alert.
Great review! I’m around 26 hours in and definitely feel like I have long ways to go. I absolutely love how this game rewards you for exploring by revealing more of the story and characters. It truly is the Bioshock experience I’ve been craving since that game came out a long time ago.
30 hours? Quit wasting your time and finish it in 20 minutes like everyone else.
One nit-picky nerdy thing I have about the Mimic ability...The object you turn into should have the same mass as your human body unless there is an in-game explanation for this discrepancy.
Certainly should use your Neuromods early - Repair, Hacking, Inventory Space, some extra healing and Gunsmith can all be reliably picked up early in the game with no regrets. Hacking in particular is immensely helpful all through the game and I wish I’d maxed it sooner.
On the subject of Typhon powers: Psychoshock is really good. Like, really really good. Why? Not only does it do a bunch of damage, it also disables enemy abilities for up to 20 seconds. Most of the most powerful of the Typhon are completely dependent on their abilities and are therefore rendered helpless when you…
