No main quest. No story line. Just me against nature....and zombies trying to eat my brains.
There are so many ways to play this game I don't think I'll ever exhaust my options of things I can do. You can stick to the familiar Navezgane map,
or switch to a random map, the difference being that the random map has no borders and goes on forever, with all sorts of biomes.
I can be a sort of Mad Max scavanger, never settling down, or I can find some place to call home.....and defend it against the zombie hordes.
I can decide to keep it as peaceful as possible, or decide I'm the Omega Man and see how long I can survive in a nuclear blasted city.
You can freeze your rear end off in the snowy hills, or slowly cook yourself in the desert. Wander a burned out forest, or map out one that's not
I have a good friend of mine that goes hunting all the time and told him about the game. He got it just so he can go hunt the deer, rabbits and wild
pigs (having to fight off the zombies was just a bonus for him).
Cooking? You can boil your meat, grill your meat. Make bacon and eggs. Make corn bread, corn on the cob. Rabbit stew, or blueberry muffins.
You can even make coffee in the game!
Here's another video I did, showing off my fortress, and taking you out to some of the other biomes. Watch towards the end, I screw up and get myself
I meant to send you a U2U letting you know it came on sale on Steam and I bought it! The only problem? Since I bought it, I just haven't been able to
sit down and play it for more that five ten minutes at a time.
Nothing against the game, just my inability to concentrate enough to actually give the game a chance!
I do enjoy watching you play it though!
Your "Fortress" is AWESOME BTW!

Remember, this is still an Alpha build, so over time this game can be so much better. The navezgane map was fun but you learned where everything was.
When I play PVP I appreciate the random world gen in the fact that players have to actually find good places to raid. There is always a city at 0,0
but everything on the outskirts is randomized. The thing I dislike is how hard it is to find a decent PVP server to join. Some servers have games
surpassing 100 in game days. This means things are looted, destroyed, buildings left all over the place. All in all it's very fun. Rust is also a
current favorite of mine.
Guess you had better luck running the game than I did. I tried playing it a few months ago and just about everytime it got interesting the game
crashed. It's definitely got potential but I'm going to wait for a stable release.
In the meantime I've been keeping myself busy with "Project Zomboid". It's a 2D game but it's probably the best Zombie Survival game out there
Eh I've been busy playing Adventurer Manager lately. I'm on my third restart because every time I get into it ... I discover more stuff I missed the
previous time that I should have been "managing." Plus my 4-year-old is addicted to the old style Nintendo RPG side-scroller graphics. He's going
to be bummed that I'm not using his Dark Elf Paladin that he named Shep when he gets home.
I'm not much into PvP style survival games. It's too easy to run into jerks who enjoy making my life hell when all I'd like to do is sit down and

BTW - thanks for all the encouragement everyone.
I'm very small potatoes compared to many YouTubers out there, and I certainly do not make any money off my channel.
It's mostly for fun that I do it and to just give a few a laugh here and there.
No problem eriktheawful, I enjoy your youtube videos you post on here.
I'm currently in the process of making my own video in Space Engineers... it will be my first real video with any substance in it. I'm having anxiety
fits though (Yes, even over something as silly as a video... that I can edit. )
I just don't think I'm cut out for speaking in any kind of "public" situation.

No problems with that. A hobby is what you love to do. I'd rather make something like that my hobby than my job because then you'd feel the pressure
to have to play the games and play all the different games too. This way you only play what you want and make videos about what you want.
4GB has pretty well become obsolete for any serious gaming... Especially with these unoptimized alpha games on early access. I found a station in
space engineers once and as soon as I claimed ownership of everything, it ate up about 7.5 GB of RAM and my game was suddenly slow. I saved and
reloaded and it went to a more acceptable amount, but still hovered around 5 GB. I always find it amazing how much our computers are actually doing in
