Games I AM playing. #1

Last post I talked about the games that I am NOT playing anymore and gave a short reason as to why I’m not playing them any more. Only to find out one of the games, ESO has changed back to the being able to group for Battle Grounds. I am excited about that, but in all honesty I don’t know if I will be returning for a bit. I have a list of games I really want to try out (which will be another post all on it’s own). SO let’s talk about the games I am playing.

VALHEIM:

For the $20 I spent on this game it is SOOOO worth it, I have over 134hrs played so far? It’s “A brutal exploration and survival game for 1-10 players, set in a procedurally-generated purgatory inspired by viking culture. Battle, build, and conquer your way to a saga worthy of Odin’s patronage!” that is the direct quote from Steam and I think sums it up.

I was maybe at hour 100 before I even fought the first boss. Which went a LOT better then I thought it would. The focus for me was exploring, I wanted to see what was out there and there is a LOT out there. I have barely scratched the surface and it’s ok.

I haven’t done a lot of ocean exploring as I am still in a raft. A thing I learned was there are all types of structures all over the place – so instead of destroying them I simply did some slap dash repairs and use them as forward bases.

First Tree House
I don’t know how to work in stone yet – so lots of wood just to make it safer.
Another little camp site.

I also seem to have gotten into bridge building. I’m not good at it but I do it lol

my second bridge ^_^

The truth of the matter is there are a LOT of pretty spots in this game. I have a LOT of screen shots. I plan on building more forward bases as I go. I actually kinda’ finished one last night, but it still looks jonky. It’s cool though – everything takes time.

Since I am playing solo it does take time to get things done. I am finally in the bronze age and am able to make nails. So being able to make carts has been a good thing – although I can’t destroy them after I am done with them which is kinda not good. I have 2 now and I’m just going with that. I realize I MIGHT be able to bring them through portals, just haven’t tested the theory just yet. I am planning my bigger boat as well – I also need to prepare for the next boss fight. Get my carrots planted, maybe get some boars. I have some untamed ones sectioned off already so getting them isn’t gonna be hard.

WOW this is longer then I thought it would be and picture heavy. I’ll write about another game later. Thanks for coming through to read my thoughts. Wash your hands, wear a mask over your nose and be safe out there.

P.S: I DO plan on streaming again – I want to be on twitch, youtube, trovo and perhaps FacebookLive. That might be a bit ambitious of me, but hey I gotta try. A few of my friends and my sister also suggested doing a podcast – but to be honest I have NO idea what I would talk about. ^_^
