Haha, learned many things from this article and I’ve already finished the game.
1. When you get deeper a lot of things look exactly like they do in the shallow parts, scan them any way, for instance the deep shrooms use the same model as Acid shrooms, I was going crazy looking for the deep ones when I first played because I kept swimming right by them thinking they were the acid ones.
If you’re reading this article and don’t own the game already, you’re probably at least somewhat intrigued by it.
I personally decided to play Freedom instead of Survival, I just like not having to micromanage a couple extra meters and use up more inventory space. I like that there’s a mode that still maintains the challenge of of how to reach deeper/farther biomes and locations, and still makes you stay on alert for dangerous…
As someone who is a Scuba Diver and has been itching for a good diving game, this game has done a great job of scratching that itch (tried Abzu, but it get boring very quickly, and a little too artsy for my tastes).
Extra tip: Play it in VR if you are able to. While there are a few buggy interface issues, it’s ridiculously fun/terrifying.
I’ve heard a lot of good things about Subnautica recently so I decided to look it up on Steam. Turns out I already own it! I think I have a problem with Steam sales and Humble Bundles that needs to be addressed...
Tip #0: Take time to enjoy it! I mean, it’s quite the beautiful game, so in between bouts of swimming scared and hungry, do take time to just sit back and enjoy the view (particularly at night; yeah it’s a pain to see sometimes, but the bioluminescence views can be worth it!).
I’d recommend finding at least one scenic…
This is very good Kotaku. I would buy this Fromer’s guide. 5/5.
Only on Witchadvisor.
A bar is only as interesting as the people who frequent it, which makes The White Orchard Inn severely underrated here.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again.
Unusual quirks aside, Steep is one of my favorite games on PC, but I really wish there was more to do to make the world seem a bit more lived-in. Great game overall once you get used to the controls.
I twisted my knee sideways trying to avoid someone who fell. That was the last time I went.
I tried snowboarding a few years back.
Wait? Steep has an Olympic DLC? That sounds awesome!
The mountains are gorgeous in Steep. Give it a shot. I played the it during the open beta and recently bought it for $20 or so and love it. It fulfills my desire for action sports video game that’s been empty since the last Skate game.
I really should pick up this sometime. I was never good at any sports, but I love mountains and this game has them in spades.
The whole premise kind of reminds me of Legacy of the Wizard / Dragon Slayer IV. Though I’m guessing Children of Morta doesn’t have the same kickin’ Falcom soundtrack. :)
Glad to hear you’re reading the books. :) I know a bunch of us lament the time when io9 did book reviews of actual sci-fi, when Charlie Jane and Annalee were still around. Maybe you could do something similar for the books? With the Netflix series in pre-pre-production it’s the best time ever to get a fanbase excited…
