I know I said I’d review Overwatch this week, but there is something on my mind right now that I need to get off of my chest.
What do think of the ocean? Personally, I haven’t given it much thought, seeing as I live in a landlocked state. I’ve gotten a feel for it by playing Subnautica recently, and I must say...the ocean is terrifying...or rather, the creatures of this game are terrifying. The main one I’m gonna talk about is called a Reaper Leviathan. Here is an image of this giant.
As cool as this image is, it barely elaborates what I’m talking about. Here is a size comparison with the tiny submarine called the Seamoth from the game.
That’s right; the Seamoth fits snugly in between its mandibles, and I use the word “mandibles”, very loosely. This thing, according to the Subnautica wiki, is roughly around 50 ft long, maybe 60 ft, give or take. That’s the length of a giant squid. Not only is its size alone intimidating, this thing sounds scary!!! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WOk4Nyq4sNM The noise alone made my spine want to jump out of my mouth. But believe it or not, that sound is used for echolocation, you know, the same thing that dolphins and whales use. That means if you can hear it, it can most certainly hear YOU. That’s just great. Also, if this monster grabs you, it’s an insta-kill. Plus this thing doesn’t even seem to know what personal space is.
(DUDE!!! GET OUT OF MY FACE! PERSONAL SPACE, BUDDY, GEEZ.)(HI MTV, MY NAME IS KENDRA, I LIVE IN HOLLYWOOD HILLS. I’M INTO JUMP SCARING PEOPLE AND I LOVE TO HAVE A GOOD TIME)(I WANNA HUG)(OH GRANDMA, WHAT BIG TEETH YOU HAVE.)(yes, I am this bored. I could do this all day)
While this thing rules the top of the ocean on it’s planet, it is the 2nd largest predator in the game. That’s right, you heard that correctly, 2nd largest. Makes you wonder who’s number one. NO, it’s not Robbie Rotten or Smitty Werbenjagermanjensen. It’s actually…(*drumroll*)...the Sea Dragon Leviathan!
