Prey – Game Guide – Part 1.0.

So I am back on working articles on this blog. And – since lately I’ve been playing some games – which I am really enjoying – I wanted to start another series of articles – guides – for one of the games I fell in love with.

The so called reboot of the 2006 game Prey. 1465797909-prey-logo

But since people call it a reboot – the game is nothing similar to the previous game sharing the same name. You can only find similarities in the name and the presence of alien creatures that invaded the in-game world.

Developed by Arkane Studios and published by Bethesda Softworks, Prey takes you on a journey on the space station named Talos I. As in many games out there – you find yourself on an abandoned facility, filled with corpses of the crew members, creatures that attack you and disastrous conditions.

Talos I has multiple areas that can be explored in order to complete missions, search clues, read emails and notes, find supplies and ammo.

[SPOILERS AHEAD]

As a first-person perspective game, Prey lets you to interact with the world around you. The protagonist – which you can choose to be a male of a female – wakes up on a Monday, date March 15th 2032. You wake up in your room and you receive a phone-call from your brother regarding some tests you have to complete.

You receive your first quest- First Day On The Job.

Arriving at the testing area you discover that some sort of alien form is present among the crew members, called Mimics. Thing is, after this event, you once again wake up at the same location, date being the same. You discover that this was all a lie – your room and the space around you being just simulation labs. Your role in exploring and finding out what is really happening begins here.

I currently completely a few other quests like:

I still have some problems with finding key-cards and entering restricted areas – but this is one of the fun things about Prey – you can explore and solve quests as you want, taking your time and finding clues everywhere. One thing I like about the game is that it tells you the amount of time spend playing – like in those fascinating JRPGs, in which you explore and battle creatures over and over to develop and level up your characters. In Prey you can find chip-sets to evolve your suit, neuromodes to gain abilities, chip-sets to improve your weapons and many other things.

I spend almost 10 hours exploring the space station and battling Mimics and Phantoms and Corrupted machinery. So this guide-article will continue with part 2.0. in which I will talk about neuromods, technologies, recycle systems and other things you can do in Prey.

Android Games: Super Hot Trigger

Screenshot_2016-03-16-23-11-53

There is something that the Android First Person Shooter games offer in exchange for your time and that is a lot of screams and insults. That’s right. I’ve played almost every FPS game on Android I could find but this one is very different. It is good, unique and has a few moments of hardened difficulty. And I entered a few stages of rage mode :))

Super Hot Trigger is developed by Swift Apps LLC.  As said on Google Play:

BEST SLOW MOTION SHOOTER ON GOOGLE PLAY!
First person shooter where you can control time. Defeat your enemies and use time to your advantage. Use multiple weapons, explore huge levels and master your skills to complete deadly missions!

– Advanced slow-motion mechanics
– Mesmerizing 3D environment
– Cutting edge graphics
– Massive and challenging levels
– Variety of extreme weapons
– Easy controls and smooth gameplay

CONTROLLING THE TIME
When you’re standing still the time moves very slowly but if you make just a little move the time immediately speeds up. When you’re shooting you’re also speeding the time up so be very careful.

TOUCH SCREEN CONTROLS
To move in any direction you have to use joystick in the bottom left corner. To look around you can swipe anywhere on the screen. If you want to shoot just use button in bottom right corner. Pause button is situated in the top left corner.

GRAPHICS AND QUALITY SETTINGS
You’ll be amazed by top notch graphics including real time light effects, laser sharp animations and destructible environment. The graphics quality will be automatically detected for your device, however you can change it in the settings menu. To visit settings click the screw button in bottom left corner in main menu scene.

The graphics look decent. There are two main categories of levels. One – in which you have to take down a certain number of enemies – or plasma soldiers – as they are represented through the game and the second type which is more like a run for an exit – in which you have to find the portal and go through it – if you survive the attacks of your foes.

There is one level in which you will continue to climb up a ladder and take out enemies while a magmatic field is filling up the room you are in. The best point of this game is the time controller. As you move, the time moves faster. If you find yourself standing and looking for your way out – it will slow down. There are various weapons to choose from and a total of 12 levels.

Kate: Puzzle

One of my favorite PC games is Mirror’s Edge. Has a lot of strong points which include a cool story, lots of action, an amazing soundtrack and a splendid artwork.

I guess that is why I enjoyed it so much, because of the simplistic abstract artwork. I even got a tattoo with the logo of the game. This was planned a very long time ago. Wanted something simple, black, something that should remind me of fun times. And I went with the logo of Mirror’s Edge.

Thing is… A tattoo just demands another one.. And then another one… Just like Pringles, you cannot have just one :)))

I plan to get another one saying “Silent Hill”, I just have to find the perfect font for it. But for now I am very pleased with this one and I am very fond of it. This morning I woke up and after playing some Dead Trigger (android zombie FPS), I listened to one of the songs from the Mirror’s Edge Official Soundtrack. It is called Kate (Puzzle). Harmoniously pleasant to hear. Produced by Solar Fields.
