    @dominalien tbh it just felt like they ran out of money. It was barely better than the Mass Effect "the same thing happens but the explosion is blue" ending. And the twist afterwards was dull and unimaginative, though like nick says it was nice that they acknowledged the way you played the game.

    OMFG. I am such a noob.

    Last night I realised (quite a few hours in) I can block flames and electricity with the gloo gun.

    /facepalm.

    All those areas I could have explored and will now likely have to go back and check for loot...
    At the risk of starting another Half Life Boat Experience.... arent there some areas that you cant progress past unless you block nozzles and whatnot with gloo? And theres a tutorial that explicitly tells you to do that, I think.

    I suppose you could yolo though them, maybe?

    You glooed your way up to the escape pod platform ?
    Yep :)

    I've always managed to find a hatch, or smashed a window to get round them so far. I have only doen a few bits of the main quest and one or two sides though. The save file says I am 7 hrs or so in, so not all that far and certainly I have always managed to get the card etc that I need. If there was a tutorial, i certainly missed it!

    I was chuffed I managed to use a dart to open a door through a window yesterday, then i had my facepalm gloo moment to bring me back to earth with a bump.

    I completely didn't realise you could use the gloo gun to build ladders to make higher platforms accessible... even though I watched an NPC do it moments before. Sigh.

    I thought there was one point where you actually had to do it. I won't say where though.

    I think I spent the majority of my playthrough making and scaling elaborate Gloo-based ladders.

    Yeah same. I love how open the game is. You can gloo your way to pretty much anywhere.

    Hmmm. I bought Mooncrash and never played it. This is getting me in the mood.

    Man, this has it's mimic-y hooks in me.
    Spent about 5 hrs on it last night and it went in a flash.

    Had to re-do a few things due to dying horribly after stupidly forgetting to save for a while.

    I may have progressed the main story a bit further than i wanted to. I now have nightmares chasing me my hiding skills will need to get better.

    The real lights / ultimate graphics mod (plus reshade) is worth getting, makes things look even prettier - https://www.nexusmods.com/prey2017/mods/22

    You sound like you have a hefty addiction to it now :)

    Nightmares are fun aren't they!

    The tried and tested "Leggit" approach may serve well here.

    Whereabouts are you now then?

    It was extremely satisfying when I got enough bullet time + shotgun upgrades, that I didn't have to run away from those things anymore.

    I stayed, basically, stationary and looked at my phone until the timer ran out.

    I think I just hid in rooms where I could lock the door? I don't remember.

    Hiding is my main tactic, followed by cowering until the timer runs out.

    The first time I met one was in the lobby of the arboretum/crew quarters bit. I tried to scan and fight it a few times- it attacked me as soon as i went in to the new living area with telepath victims/phantoms chasing me. Not fun.

    Now turreted up in cargo B about to go out and meet some chums.

    Then I am going to sack off main campaign portion and tool about on side quests. Also, I need to kill that tricksy chef. :-D

    Can you kill the nightmares? My memory is letting me down but I'm sure you can?

    Haha yes the tricksy chef :D

    @quadfather Yes - hit them with a Nullwave grenade to neuter their abilities and then throw two or three Recycler Charges at them to kill them.

    They also are weak to being shotgunned in the face.
