No worries! Cheers for the other preview link Wink

From the Rock, Paper, Shotgun article:

Rock, Paper, Shotgun Wrote:There are moments of violence, methods to restore health, and limping animations as punishment takes its toll.

So it seems SOMA will have at least one "traditional" survival horror mechanic.

From watching the Eurogamer video, it appears that the weird growths on the walls which look kinda like prolapsed rectums are the "healing stations".

Spoiler below!

Here are another two previews:

GameReactor

Everyeye [Video]
http://www.everyeye.it/notizie/soma-vide...32403.html (Italian)

The Everyeye footage looks gorgeous, so it's worth watching even if you can't understand the narration.

Here are some new screenshots, taken from the GameReactor article:

Yeah, we mentioned earlier on about the energy ports being some kind of healing device. Glad we were spot on with that Smile

Images look really cool. The first one is particularly creepy.

Where does human and machine begin and end.....
