I never played Below Zero. I'm glad I didn't based on the reviews. I think it's time to fire up Subnautica 1 again, maybe on my Occulist Rift.

So, I recently got a Quest 2 and decided to give Subnautica VR a whirl. It was...not great. Granted, it was right after I got the headset and I was still acclimating, but I couldn't figure out half the controls.

Have you done it before? I heard there's a mod that vastly improves the VR experience.

You guys know what the game's about, right?

I honestly don't...I'm trying to figure out where the 'violence' and 'blood' warnings would possibly come into play, from everything I can find on it. I've seen that it's a 'psychological horror' game related to dating...or something?

Edit: Maybe don't spoil. God help me, I'm going in.

Below Zero is more of a expansion turned into a full game. That I lost interest in after 30 hours or so.

I really had to force myself through that one. I think the isolation of the first Subnautica is what drew me to it, and BZ's addition of other characters you communicate with (correct me if I'm wrong) sort of spoiled that for me. The world also felt a bit smaller and more restricted.

It wasn't terrible, but I much preferred the original.

Some updated info from Unknown Worlds here.


In reference to “Games-as-a-Service,” we simply plan to continually update the game for many years to come, just like the previous two Subnautica games. Think our Early Access update model, expanded. No season passes. No battle passes. No subscription.

This was actually the first freebie to get me to take the plunge and make an account a few years back. Worth grabbing if you didn't get it the first time around.

Who is using a non-RTX card these days? Assuming you're referring to people that just want to play Half Life 2 classic on their potato? Usually they give options if they're going to update the original game.

Sadly, we exist. I just did a [nearly] full build for the first time in over a decade and I'm still waiting to pull the trigger on a GPU. No, my GPU isn't also 10+ years old, but it's definitely long in the tooth.

I still can't stomach these prices, they're absolutely absurd.

That said, this is tempting me to get a move on.

Oh, looks like they already rolled out a working version of Hotfix 4. This should be resolved and those saves made under the previous hotfix should now be working again.

https://store.steampowered.com/news/app/1086940/view/3642902312048647389

Yesterday we had to rollback hotfix 4 because of a rare compiler issue. To avoid this from happening again we’re changing the way we deploy patches....

...This situation is remedied now with the re-release of hotfix 4 but we recognize the frustration caused by this and want to apologize. That’s why we’re changing things up.

All of you should now be able to continue your adventures...

I don't know how I dodged this bullet, but I'm happy I did. I was definitely playing off and on for most of the day Tuesday, then once again off and on yesterday from about noon to 9PM ET.

I saw this news this morning and was worried, but my save file loaded up just fine.

Whew, glad I can keep rolling!

It's so, so good. I had one crash when I ran it under Vulkan. The EA version defaulted to Vulkan and ran fine. The release version defaulted to DX11 and I tried Vulkan first, and had a crash during character creation. I've switched to DX11 and it's been completely solid ever since.

There have been multiple times that it has caught me off guard and had me cracking up in front of my computer. Because everyone's playthroughs and character choices are different, I'll try to SST them with a bit of background/description warning.

So I picked The Dark Urge as my origin story.... When I set up camp for the first time, a cheery little tiefling bard showed up at my camp and wanted to join my party. "Cool," I thought. "I don't have a bard yet." I had the party turn in for the night only to wake up in the morning and my character had disemboweled her in his sleep. I passed a roll check to drag her corpse off and bury her before the rest of my party woke up.

I encountered a gnome...who was being tortured by some goblins who had tied him to a windmill. I persuaded/intimidated them into fucking off, and went to stop the windmill to free the gnome. But I didn't realize there was a brake switch...and a brake release switch. Accidentally flipped the brake release and the windmill sped up and flung the gnome far, far across the map to his death. Whoops.

Finally, I encountered a barn...eh, you've probably found the sexy barn Smash

Btw hit F10 to get rid of the annoying overlay with the version number on it, kind of immersion killing.

It's still priced like one.

Meh. Disagree. At least on console.

$50 on PS5 vs the regular $70.

Shame they added him as a survivor and not as the killer/monster. Chasing people around as a crazed Nic Cage sounds fun.
