The Virtual Life – Learning What It Means To Be Human In Prey

This week I'm talking all about Prey. No major spoilers but some minor ones about side quests.

You're being led through a fantastical environment filled with various dangers, both monstrous and environmental, collecting audio tapes along the way that help paint a clearer picture of what their respective settings were like before everything went to hell.
