This is how you heal yourself:> Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
in order to heal yourself, interact with those pods with black tubes coming out of them. They are located on every level, but easy to pass if you're in a hurry

I haven't beaten the game yet but I wonder if there is a downside to using those? What exactly happens to Simon when using them? I'm leaving Lambda now and things have really picked up, it's more interesting than ever.

Thank you! Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Suddenly it makes sense since they have a weird melted "plus" symbol. I was wondering what they did besides trigger the robot sometimes.

I'm sorry, I'm never very good at understanding what some of the stuff is in games. What is considered Lambda? I personally just got upstairs into the comm center and saved there last night. I've been going very slow and reading everything, but things don't always click easily. Thanks.

Game is awesome! Work has been busy so I'm not very far, but I'm really enjoying it!

Agreed on the sound - aside from the voice-overs this game has some amazing sound effects and ambient music.

Gaming, building custom PC's, and discussing aforementioned topics is one of my valued forms of escape, so please contribute thoughtfully and respectfully! thumb.gif

This isn't even a spoiler so I'll omit the tags. Lambda is the name of one of the other stations, like Upsilon. I'll leave the rest for you to find out.

Interestingly enough when you hear Simon speaking under water, the voice actor actually is under water so again it's very realistic. As for voice acting, it's pretty good. Nothing particularly amazing but it's fine. So far the dialogue isn't quite as memorable as Penumbra (especially Black Plague) but it serves its purpose as thought provoking material. I only have less than 4 hours in SOMA at the moment.

So far I think the voice over is pretty good, short of a few lines here and there. IMO the animation of the people is what is letting things down for me at times.

Another hour down, and made it to Lambda and scoped it out a bit. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Stupid thing got me while I was trying to help Catherine. Tired to run up some stairs and got stuck on them. frown.gif All healed up now though. Creeped the heck out of me.

Yeah I figured that enemy would scare the crap out of you. Wait until later...
