Beanbag chairs for everyone?!

POLYNAUTS COMMENT OF THE DAY (2/10):
I love the explanation’s of the Polynauts Polymemes…haha!
Good morning everyone!
Things I’ve learned playing Uncharted: Drake’s Series of Unfortunate Deaths: The Movie (mi’right Fox?)
I don’t die in gun fights because they’re smarter than me, I die because they spawned three shotgun guys immediately behind me where there’s a closed fence.
Elena Fisher is obviously Sam Fisher’s daughter. She annoys me and has infinite bullets at all times in whatever weapon she’s holding. She’s more than likely a conjurer of black magics.
Jetskis can move up rivers, tapping barrels with anything that is more powerful than a light tickle will result in an instant death (Someone decided to put all unstable explosives in a barrel and toss them down river), and taking a propelled grenade to the face simply results in me seeing black/white. Also, I think U:DSoUD:TM may have also sapped my enjoyment from jetskis so much that I may hate them in real life now…this will be tested in due time when I can look at one without vomiting.
Falling five feet into a “no-no” zone is an instant death. 12 bullets to the face, however, results in heavy breathing.
Last but not least, I realized that Drake must have some sort of mutant power that allows him to regenerate health. Surely, at some point, the pirates should realize that there’s something up if one man has literally killed more pirates than some nations have people…right? At this point in the game, the only reason I have as many kills as I do is because they keep giving me guns…so maybe all the pirates should just bum trouser rush Drake and overpower him with sheer force?
Either way, the game is fun and I’m probably 70% through with it. :p

Every day there will only be one comment from the previous thread. It's decided based upon the most recommends an individual receives for their comment; should two people have the same rating then both comments will be posted.
Okay, there we have another day's worth of catch-ups folks. Remember to sound off in the comments below and share any awesome news you find today. As always check out the @Polygon feed on Twitter to keep up to date. There's also our own @Polynauts twitter feed. Alternatively, you can chat with @shaunmcilroy if you miss him and wish to contact him throughout the day. If you, for some reason, want to chat with me, you can look for 'Salias' (It's the user that matches my avatar here) on Steam, as I generally always have the Steam client open if my computer is on.
