Secret patch updates Prey with REM lyrics as achievements

The moon is a harsh mistress

I love to start the weekend off right. And by that, I mean seeing some fun video game news that makes me shout at my screen uncontrollably.

Please let us know if any of you figure out how to unlock the achievements ahead of time.

Also, if you're thinking of taking Prey out for another spin before the new expansion, please consider throwing this lighting mod on first.
