Pigs. I hate them. I don’t like anything that would giddily eat my face. It’s hypocritical, sure, seeing as I’ve eaten countless pigs over the years. They deserve retribution, but I’d much rather shoot them in their piggish, squealing faces with the bow I just crafted out of palm fronds and crocodile teeth. Such a situation has just been made possible in the open-world survival horror game The Forest, which received another substantial update earlier today.
I’d go on, but it’s time I return to those woods. Those pigs will never see me coming.
