You play as a female shark so "Whoa-oa here she comes!" is a totally apt lyric to chant like I do about 25 times per play session

I really dig Nelly Furtado's Maneater. The drum beat is really catchy.

Game totally delivers on my sharkspectations so far. Alligators can go gently caress a duck though.

I'm up to the Alligator boss fight, and it's the first time I'm going to have to go back to previous areas and clear out sidequests. To be fair, it is nearly twice my level, so it's not like the game isn't saying "this dude is bullshit".

I've noticed that level actually doesn't do a whole lot to determine your effectiveness in combat- especially since (mechanics spoiler) your level cap is much lower than your enemies'. Actual skills and tactics are more important, so you could probably do it now.

Be a tactical shark, essentially.

It's basically Shark Souls.

I've found that using a hit and run style works well against Gators. Dash close, bite a time or two, dash away.

I've gotten far enough to hit open ocean, and I'm really enjoying the exploration, and just swimming around. It's like Abzu, except I can eat things.

The humour has been enjoyable too. Chris Parnell drying pointing out the pollution, and tons of media references have kept me giggling.

Carly shook her glass, willing the ice to melt. "You still haven't told me what the mission is."

She leaned forward. "We are going to assassinate the bad men of Hollywood."




Do you eventually get a super jump that lets you reach some of these really high license plates?

Platinum'd this game earlier today/yesterday. Game's incredibly fun, and I hope a sequel gets made with even more sharky goodness.

My method has been:
Start submerged below the plate.
Dash towards the surface
After breaching, hit the jump, then dash again, then bite.

I LIKE TO MAKE VAGUE THREATS TO PEOPLE ON THE INTERNET BECAUSE I AM TOUGH GUY. P.S. ASK ME ABOUT THE TIME A GIRL BEAT ME UP IN GRADE SCHOOL. HER NAME WAS SUZIE SHE DREW A BIG WEINER ON MY FOREHEAD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I hate it when I don't know where to post; this is why I mainly post "lol butts" which is always helpful and welcome in every situation

here are some basic tips

- Collectibles give off a sonar ping noise which you can hear at a fair distance as long as you're underwater.
- ABC: Always Be Chompin. There is no downside to eating any and all prey animals that cross your path.
- Tailwhip has a ton of uses. Jump up onto or next to hunter boats and tailwhip the crew off all at once instead of trying to eat them one by one. Grab an enemy, thrash it until it's about to escape, then tailwhip it into the ground--or onto dry land. Grab smaller fish and tailwhip them into a tough enemy; this is a huge help for dealing with alligators while you're still a teen.
- XP is based on nutrients collected, which means the Digestion upgrades will also level you up a bit faster. Get those gains
- Mash the chomp button during a jump for added height.
- Eat humans to attract hunters, fight hunters to increase your infamy until a named hunter shows up, and defeat them for Bio-Electric parts that come with electric damage and stun effects.
- Complete hunt missions in a region and kill the apex predators that appear for Bone parts that provide extra defense and a ton of bonuses against boats. You can't get at the Fawtick Bayou apex predator right away--you have to advance through Dead Horse Lake into Golden Shores, and some more bayou hunts will unlock.
- Find 100% of landmarks in a region for Shadow parts that give you increased mobility and poison abilities. The Shadow Teeth in particular are fantastic for general use, with extra damage and a heal effect every time you chomp something, not just when you finish eating it.

Level does play a part. You can start grabbing and thrashing bigger critters as you level up.

It's pretty cathartic to go back to the swamp after you hit full size. Those gators that used to terrorize you as a wee baby can be grabbed right off the hop. Then it's shake shake shake, like a Rottweiler with a squirrel in its mouth.
