REVIEWING TIME!!!

 

7 Days to Die_20160706144300

 

Okay so I’ve put right about 53ish hours of game play in just this one week I’ve owned the game. Yes it’s pretty addictive if you’re into that type thing.

So this game is minecraft meets state of decay meets day z with a walking dead type feel. I mean they even have The Walking Dead skin packs.

If you don’t eat you die. If you don’t drink you die. If you step on a sharp spike you start bleeding and if you have no bandages to stop the bleeding you die. If you go in the cold with no clothes on you die. If you go in the rain with no clothes on you die. If you wear to much clothing in the desert you die. There is so much more than just zombies you have to worry about on this game.

So obviously you start off with needing to find supplies to build a house and stay safe, at least safer than standing outside while zombies eat you. If you build your own house make sure it is structured with correct support. If you don’t support the blocks properly they will collapse and become nothing more than a big pile of mess on the ground. And if you have them collapse on a chest of goodies you lose that chest of goodies. You can also find abandon homes that you can fortify and make your base as well. You do not sleep in this game, you get a bed so you can respawn back in safety but you don’t get to sleep till the next day and avoid all the monsters at night. And it is based on 24 hour day game time is 24 minutes real time (every second in real time is one minute in game time).

You have skill points and 4 pages of skills you can upgrade however you want. You gain 5 skill points per level up. And some quest and side missions you can find give you 1 skill point per completing. 2 skill points if you complete them in an allotted time. Some of the Skills require 10 pts to gain 1 level in that skill others cost 1 skill point per skill level increase. And some skills are locked until you reach a certain skill in other skills.

You have to hunt and look in EVERYTHING. Trash piles on the ground, tree trunks, trashcans, abandon homes, cabinets, abandon stores, abandon cars, you get 1 supply crate every 24 hours (which I believe you can change to different times in settings if you want).

Okay so I would love to give this game a 8.5 out of 10. But I won’t rate it at all because it’s still in the “alpha” stage. It has huge promise and its hard. For those of us who enjoyed minecraft but after playing it a few times on hard difficulty you realize its just something to kill time with or play with younger kids/siblings (or your mom… my mom enjoys it) then you’re going to enjoy this game.

P.S Just like minecraft the PC version has more stuff on it than the console version. Not cool but its the sad hard truth.

But with knowing that it is in Alpha stage, it is still very buggy, and it does still have problems… here are some of the big bugs/glitches/issues I’ve had to face in just the week of owning it.

  • Zombies glitch through the wall/door. This has ONLY happened like twice. But it has happen.
  • The game just closes you out to dashboard. This happens more than I’d like. But if you don’t play the game for more than a hour or two it shouldn’t be a problem. Moderation is key. I however am not very good with that and find myself 8+ hours in before I remember I was supposed to do stuff.
  • A prebuilt building reset and we lost all of our stuff in the building. So me and SOULSE3K3R were doing our thing had a huge lead into making one heck of a base and becoming sufficient in our homesteading structure when his game sent him to dashboard. Nothing new we open it back up and the room where all our building supplies (i’m talking over 10,000 each resource) was reset back to the prebuilt building we had renovated and we lost everything.
  • Read a schematic to learn something and you get to learn it a second time! This is a plus cause skill points are to be cherished.

 

So over all I still play, I’m still addicted, I cuss and rant and rave about the game, but I’m not leaving. Hopefully I’ll see you on the game too.

X is for Xbox

You can’t have video games without having something to play them on. So this is for all my Microsoft Xbox lovers. Show off your love with some of these neat things
Wall decor for Xbox (and PlayStation)
Xbox Pinata
Xbox Cake topper….oh yeah the bride won!
Xbox White console Christmas ornament
Xbox controller table.

H is for Halo

 
Unless you own an Xbox or Xbox360 you haven’t actually played this game. However, you probably have heard of it. I find it really unique and interesting that Halo went solo for Xbox 360 and has managed to make it look so easy. Very few and I mean very few games are only one console limited. But Halo proves that with the right touch you can make it happen. So lets bring Halo to life with the following stuff.
 
 
 
A M363 made from legos
 
 
 
 
 
Statue of one of my favorite little guys to shoot
 
 
 
 
Halo helmets you can actually wear
 
 
 
 
Halo Lego man
 
 
 
Halo Action Figure
 
 
 
 
 
Halo Wall Mural painting
 
 
 
 
 
Another gun and grenade made from legos
 
 
 
 
 
‘Fat Head’ wall decals (comes in multiple images)
 
 
 
Halo Wallet
 
 
 
 
 
Crochet Halo Helmet
 
 
 
 
Another Halo Action Figure
 
 
 
 
 
Laptop UNSC set (Laptop not included) Could also be an xbox case. I forget.
 
 

Starting a Year ahead of Schedule!!!!

Okay so I found this picture on the internet and I immediately thought about the A-Z Challenge I just recently finished in April. Next year I already have my topic and will probably go ahead and schedule the post. That gives me over a year to have time to edit rewrite or add content to each post. Anyway I am going to do Games in Real Life.
Just so you can more understand what I am talking about here is some examples you will be seeing next April.

 

 

Can’t wait for April!!!!!

MineCraft Xbox 360 Style

 

Today was the release of MineCraft for Xbox 360. It is a download game and it cost 1600 credits. So about $20.
As much as the game is like the PC version it is also very different. Number one difference would be the controls. Instead of using a,s,d,w you use your joysticks.
Minecraft can be played with up to 4 people on the same Xbox and up to 8 people when you go to Xbox live. For the same Xbox you only have to have one person with the download.

Explain: I have the game downloaded on my name. I get on my name and open the game. My husband does not have the game downloaded to his name but its the same xbox. He can pick up his controller and hit start. He is in my game. And he can and does receive achievements for things he does in the game.

If you can dream it….you can build it. The possibilities are endless. Hours can and probably will be spent on this game.
Let me know if you have an Xbox 360 and want to be friends also let me know if you get the game and your thoughts on it.

A-Z challenge Reflection

Well this was my first A to Z challenge but will not be my last. I did learn a lot of good lessons that many of those who’ve done this challenge before warned about. The first thing is I should have had all or a large sum of my post pre-scheduled. I didn’t and it became very hard on me to keep up daily because for some reason suddenly April I got wrapped up in multiple things on multiple days and my blog post didn’t get out there till late in the afternoon. Sometimes dare I admit it, it didn’t get posted till the next day. Yeah if doing a daily blog post wasn’t hard enough doing a catch up blog post and a daily blog post is even harder.
I did however pick a topic and stuck with it. I found some great friends to connect with through my topic. (In case you didn’t read my blog it was about video games.) The topic made coming up with a post each day so much easier then if I would have just randomly decided to find something in the day to write about. I think I am going to go ahead and start working now for next years topics lol.
I must say I felt accomplished and proud of myself when I could say yes I completed the challenge. And I wear my badge proudly. I’m glad I joined the challenge and I’m happy to have met such wonderful people and read their blogs.

My Current Obsession….video games will rule the world at this rate….

First let me tell you that Xbox made me fall in love for one reason lately. I can talk to it and don’t have to mess with the controller. It is awesome.

Equals AWESOMENESS IN GAME CONSOLE FORM!!!!!!
So while playing my PC game that I’m about to talk about… I turn my xbox on and tell it to go to my iheartradio app and so I am jamming to my radio station while playing games on my pc. Yes I could use my pc but why when I can TALK to my xbox?? It is just a cool awesome feature that I am in love with using!! BE JEALOUS!!!
Anyway onward to the obsession!!!! Its really simple only cost about $27 US Dollars. And you can play forever.  I bring you…….
