  1. Yeah, there is that too. I think people are also getting used to the pandemic and changing their habits to live around the pandemic right?
  2. I just snatched GTA IV for $5 lol. Probably the best $5 I spent this month haha.
  3. Yeah, DayZ is a pretty serious survivor game. It requires a lot of patience to play this game. Rust is more of a fun based survival game. But this is a more realistic survival game. I like how you can easily relate to the real world in this game.
  4. Thank you, looking forward to seeing this community flourish.
  5. Yep, it is on sale at Steam. The graphics is just amazing on Subnautica, 10/10. You can easily get lost just admiring the graphics of this game.
  6. Yeah, it's a pretty game. I like how they make you survive, and you have to keep island hopping in order to actually survive. Different island provide you with different resources that help your survival.
  7. This was one of the best updates for Rust this year, I can't wait to have my very own pet monster. Just amazing!
  8. Yes, indeed, I will add a separate topic for raiding. Thank you. I tried my best to keep it simple. Let me know if I have missed out on anything.
  9. Amazing tutorial @Nous, I agree with the tools over weapons tactic. I faced numerous times when I tried getting weapons instead of tools, and it backfired on me so many times. Always make sure you have the weapons necessary with you at all times.
  10. Well we have been in this pandemic for over two years now. Do you think the pandemic is over? Do you think that COVID-19 is coming to an end anytime soon?
  11. A very straight forward question. What game are you playing right now? I am playing Rust at the moment. You?
  12. Another survival game that has hit the charts on Twitch following its release is Subnautica. You play as a stranded astronaut seeking ways to fix your ship to head back to your planet. Trailer: Have you played this game before? What do you think of it as a survival game?
  13. Introduction to Valheim Valheim is a sandbox survival game developed by the Swedish studio Iron Gate Studio. It was published in early access for Windows and Linux on Steam on February 2, 2021, by Coffee Stain Studios. Valheim is set in a universe where slain Vikings must show their worth in order to enter Valhalla's halls. As such, the player starts with nothing and quickly learns that the only way to reach the Norse afterlife is to vanquish the horrors that hound Valheim. The player must prepare to face Odin's sworn enemies, guided only by their intuition and occasional suggestions from a raven. Fun fact: Gameplay To live, players must create tools, establish shelters, and combat foes like fallen Vikings. The game has low-resolution stylized 3D graphics, a third-person perspective, and an action-game-inspired combat system. Cooperative gameplay with up to 10 individuals is possible, as well as optional PVP gameplay. Meadows, Black Forest, Swamp, Mountains, Plains, Ocean, Mist lands, Deep North, and Ash lands are among the procedurally produced biomes. Each biome features a unique difficulty level, complete with unique opponents, bosses, and items. Because of the game's unique food system, in-game hunting, foraging, and farming are essential for progression: the quantity of health and stamina available to a player is determined by the variety and quality of the food consumed. A skill-level system is also used in the game, which goes from blocking to running. Each talent has varied effects on the game mechanics and can be levelled up to 100. The spear's skill, for example, determines how much damage the player can deal with spears, while the running skill determines how much energy is depleted when sprinting. The main goal of the game is to defeat the five bosses that are scattered throughout the game's biomes. Each boss must be summoned with a specific offering. A trophy will be dropped once the boss has been defeated; this trophy must be put at the God's Altar to obtain a special power up. One- and two-handed weapons, shields, bows, and spears are all used in combat. Players can travel between biomes on foot or on specially crafted boats, which range from rafts to various sorts of Viking longships.

  17. Introduction to Rust Facepunch Studios has created Rust, a multiplayer-only survival video game. Rust was first made available in early access in December 2013, and it was officially launched in February 2018. Rust is a programming language that runs on Microsoft Windows and Mac OS X. The PlayStation 4 and Xbox One console versions, developed in collaboration with Double Eleven, were published in May 2021. Rust's goal is to survive in the wilderness by gathering or stealing resources. Or risk death, players must successfully control their hunger, thirst, and health. Despite the presence of hazardous animals such as bears and wolves, the player's major threat is other players due to the game's multiplayer nature. Firearms and diverse weapons, such as bows, are used in combat. In addition, non-player characters' vehicles will occasionally roam the map, targeting armed players. Rust includes crafting, however it is initially limited until specific things are discovered in the game's open world. To increase their chances of survival, players must construct bases or join clans. Rust features a lot of raiding. Rust allows for the creation of customized servers with additional content. Gameplay Rust is a multiplayer-only video game in which players compete against one another in a harsh, open world setting with the only purpose of surviving. Animals such as wolves and bears pose a hazard, but it is the other players that provide the most danger. Except a few pre-built maps, most maps are procedurally produced. A player starts out with only a rock and a torch. The rock has the ability to fell trees, shatter stones, and be used as a weapon. Killing animals produces cloth and food; mining offers stone, metal ore, and sulfur ore; and felling trees supplies wood. The player must acquire resources and use them to make tools, weapons, and other gear in order to survive in the environment. To manufacture objects, the player must have enough of the essential materials on hand, with advanced creations requiring increasingly esoteric components scattered throughout the area. The number of items that can be crafted is limited, however blueprints enable for the development of more complicated items. Environment If the player does not eat, they will starve to death. Other obstacles the player must face during the game include drowning, freezing, and attacks by wildlife, particularly bears and wolves. Additionally, several locations on the map are radioactive. Radiation is classified into four levels: minor, low, medium, and high. To access these regions, the appropriate armour or apparel must be donned; failing to do so can result in death. Upon death, a screen opens, offering the option of respawning in a random area or in a sleeping bag or bed (placed previous to death). The player's inventory is reset to the basic rock and torch when they respawn. PVP Rust's basic notion is to form a "clan." Clans typically build homes for their members, share things and supplies, and engage in organized raids and pillage. Bows, melee weapons, and craftable guns are used in player vs player (PvP) warfare. Instead of being a hit scan, bullets and other projectiles follow a ballistic trajectory. Each gun may fire a variety of bullets, including high-velocity and explosive bullets, providing players a more varied strategy. Damage is calculated via hit tracking; shots to the head are more dangerous than ones to other regions of the body. Getting Around In Rust, there are vehicles that can be operated by the player. Boats are used to travel large distances over water in search of priceless treasure. Hot air balloons and other flying vehicles can also be used to quickly explore the map. They spawn at random and can be used once fueled. Unlike the aggressive AI entities, these player-controlled vehicles can be destroyed by surface-to-air missiles placed outside of bases. Similarly, the player can use modular vehicles discovered while exploring to carry himself and others. Roadside vehicle chassis must be suitably repaired and equipped with an engine before being used. Airdrops In Rust, airdrops are quite crucial. A prop plane brought these parachute-equipped pallets of goods. They may be spotted from a long distance, causing players to rush towards the airdrop. An attack helicopter and the CH-47 Chinook are among the numerous entities that drop advanced loot. Both of these creatures roam the map at random, attempting to kill players. The Chinook also visits a randomly selected landmark in the game environment, which is guarded by aggressive NPCs, and drops a locked supply box that opens after a certain amount of time, allowing PvP interactions. Compounds are safezones where players can exchange resources while being watched over by automated high-damage auto turrets that fire on anyone drawing a weapon, preventing disloyalty. Additionally, for a set period of time, these nefarious characters will be identified as hostile to NPCs.
  18. Introduction to DayZ Bohemia Interactive created and released DayZ, a survival video game. It is the standalone sequel to the same-named mod for the game ARMA 2. The game was formally published in December 2018 for Windows after a five-year early access period, and in 2019 for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4. The game takes place in Chernarus, a fictional post-Soviet republic where a strange virus has converted the majority of the population into violent "infected". As a survivor, the player must scour the world seeking food, water, weapons, and medication while killing or avoiding the infected, as well as killing, evading, or cooperating with other players in order to stay alive. Gameplay The purpose of DayZ is to stay alive and healthy during the zombie apocalypse that has engulfed the in-game globe. The player starts with only a pair of simple clothes, a glow stick, and half of a bandage, and must begin wandering the 225-square-kilometer landscape of the fictional former Soviet Republic of Chernarus to scavenge resources from houses, farms, and flats. These commodities include food and water, both of which are essential for the player's survival. Players can acquire numerous medical items while travelling about the game, since the environment provides a variety of risks to their heroes. Diseases such as cholera, dysentery, and hepatitis, which can be contracted by consuming contaminated water or rotting food and must be treated with the necessary medicines, are among the planned characteristics. Items on a player's person may be damaged if they are shot or otherwise injured. The player may also begin bleeding, which must be wrapped as soon as possible to prevent severe blood loss; excessive injury or blood loss may cause the player's vision to deteriorate significantly, rendering them comatose.
  19. Has anyone played Stranded Deep before? Seems to be one hell of a solo survival game. It does have a co-op mode too, so you can play with your friends. The game is still in early access at the moment but looking at a few gameplay videos on YouTube, it seems to be a promising game. Trailer: Steam Page Link
