So, I'm playing through this game, and I'm really enjoying it so far. One thing is really bugging me tho. I had *no* idea there was optional content in this game until brad mentioned it on the podcast and like jeff, had not the faintest clue with what he was talking about. I got to the giant lake hub area, and I think they could have done a bit of a better job of saying there's extra stuff you can do around here. Heck, I'm in the second area and the only way I thought to even look for anything else, was your kid going "are you sure we want to leave this area?"
Now I'm running around and I'm finding some stuff, but I can't get past this lake which It looks like they might have more to do...but I'm not sure.
Anyway, I think They could have at least dropped a bit of a bigger hint that you could explore more and find more areas off the beaten path. Maybe that's just me tho ?
