Who doesn’t know what a PC is? Personal Computers are one of the most defining features of our time. Machines that are great for work, for fun and for studying. But what PC really is? The Wiki says it’s a “multi-purpose electronic computer whose size, capabilities and price make it feasible for individual use”. But it gets better: “Personal Computers are intended to be operated directly by an end-user, rather than by a computer expert or technician”. Computers were originally invented to “compute” and solve complex mathematical problems. Today, everything is different and their original purpose is actually the least important one. Instead, they are used for gathering data (internet), entertainment (video games, movies, music, etc) and work.
Since the early 1990s, Microsoft operating systems and Intel hardware have dominated the PC market. There are alternatives to Microsoft Windows operating system but they still occupy a minority share of the industry. These include Apple's iOS and free open-source operating systems (e.g. Linux and Chrome OS).Prey is an FPS action-adventure game developed by Austin (a branch of the Arkane Studios) and published by Bethesda. The game was released in May 2017 for all main platforms (PC, PlayStation, Xbox).
In Prey, players take control over Morgan Yu and explore the massive space station, Talos I. Talos I is a place where research into a hostile alien race (called the Typhon) is performed. When the Typhon escape their confinement, players must use a variety of weapons and super-human abilities (derived from the Typhon) to avoid being killed by the aliens and escape the station. The station is presented as a semi-open world, with progression through the areas possible after obtaining certain abilities or key items. In that regard, Prey is somewhat similar in nature to a Metroidvania game.
Arkane's Prey is a remake (although word re-imagining describes it better) of the original 2006’s Prey. 2017’s Prey took the place of Prey 2, a long-planned sequel to the original game that was canceled in 2014. Arkane's version does not use any of the planned sequel’s assets, and only incorporates the name and the broad theme of the hero being hunted by aliens. Prey is often described as a spiritual sequel to the legendary System Shock.
Prey is one hell of a game and offers a fantastic gaming experience. Get your own copy at Games Republic and fight for survival aboard the Talos I station.Hide
