Nothing has been spoiled. You can actually explore the Subnautica world for days on end without advancing the game's storyline.

There are a few timed and triggered scripted events, but there's really nothing pushing one to go any faster than at a pace that's comfortable. In some ways, I guess its a bit like Skyrim in that there is a main quest, but it can wait.

Well, Subnautica is doing an awesome job engaging my attention, and it has nearly literally scared the crap out of me. Swimming along, something with a very very deep base sound was right under me. Didn't realize I was over deep water. Ducked under, and... you know that scene in Finding Nemo, where Dora is going to talk to the whale? A lot like that. Vague, hazy, and huge.

Whimper. Got me right in the fear glands.

I have very good headphones, and they vibrated with the bass that ginormous whatever-it-is made. A first for me (and the headphones).

From the description, they're Reefbacks. They get the name from the plant life that grows on their backs. Usually its stuff you might have to travel to other parts of the map to find, and some of it will likely be harvestable--even while the creature is moving about.

They are sometimes afflicted with an unfortunate immersion-breaking (and reported) virus, though. I won't say what it is, but you'll know it when and if you see it.

I... think I may be overfishing? Seems like it's getting harder to find the filter fish, which could spell disaster. Guess I'd better stop exploring so far afield and start base building (but exploring is so much fun!! I swam to an island which is apparently floating on the backs of a bunch of giant floaty critters! And there's evidence of prior inhabitants!). I see bleach is something I can potentially make, and the description suggests I can use it to make potable water. Hope so; hate to die of thirst so early in the game....

I'm really loving this game.

Iím finally on the Red Dead Redamption 2 slippery slope. I got it for Christmas and I adore it.

I have only done a few of the missions, and tend to ignore things and events that I donít think are any of my business!

Iím currently up in the far north searching for a gunslinger with my faithful Shire ďMajor TomĒ last night we got chased by a bear and survived!

Today we are going to try and get the gunslinger but we are so remote and the snow is so deep it is genuinley making me anxious!

Fantastic game.

p.s. I also found a mule on a farm. I am going to have that one next!

Yes, I put Red Dead Redemption 2 on hold to play Forza Horizon 4, which is better for short doses of mindless relaxation, and have ended up buying the Fortune Island DLC for Forza and haven't played RDR2 for a while. And I've just got Assassins Creed: Odyssey for Christmas, which I've not started yet as I've been at my parents. So I am not sure when I'll next get a good go at RDR2. Now that I have a job, I almost need to start timetabling my games...

(eta) My horse is called Cleopatra, and I'm fond enough of her that I've not even wanted to start training up any other horses, even ones that might turn out to be better. They've almost done too good a job on making you bond with the horses!

That they have, I currently have:
Gary Two (Gary One fell down a hole I think),

Major Tom (Named after a Shire Horse that does wagon tours of Tenby that we went on on our Honeymoon) and

Ugly Steve (Which is the cheap horse that you are forced to buy on the ďhow to buy a horse mission)

We stayed at home last night (New Yearís Eve) because Mrs Off was not well, but I found myself, on the strike of midnight, having a party in the Saloon in Valentine, can can dancing with the patrons during the mission where you have to take a compatriot to go and get drunk.

Hilarious stuff!

I've had the game since Black Friday and I've been slowly plugging away at it. I've only got one horse, the preorder DLC warhorse*, who I've named Worthless. I've considered buying another horse, since there are some really good ones unlocked now, but I just don't see the need to do so.

*Despite buying the game about a month after its release, there was a Preorder DLC redemption code in it, so of course I took it.

I've been working on trying to get all the legendary animals and legendary outfits. I've gotten everything but the Tatanka Buffalo, Pronghorn, Panther, and Alligator, and that's because they're in locations I can't reach yet or I haven't reached the point where they become available (two of one, two of the other).

I've got the camp almost fully upgraded, have purchased all but a couple of the guns (BTW, when you're chasing down the gunslingers, be sure to take their revolvers- they're unique weapons).

And buy Pearson the leatherworking tools as quickly as possible: the upgraded carry bags are vital.
