Adventures: Unturned #01

Hello everyone!

Recently, I have been playing Unturned with a few of my close friends. I played the game a bit when it first came out, but started getting bored quickly. When two of my close friends invited me to join them in giving it a try, I felt like it would be a good idea to see what the game was like with friends.

We entered the world, and realized we were having trouble finding each other. This is quite common for zombie survival games, as I have also had to run around looking for my friends in games such as H1Z1 and Infestation: Survivor stories. We had to make a Steam group, and all be in it, which allowed us to see each others names in-game. After finding each other, we also realized we were naked, so alas our search for clothes. We died a few times at first, but we managed to collect some weapons, food and clothes. After exploring the island a bit, we decided to settle down on a ship that was docked at one of the towns.


I almost feel like we need some “censor” bars here… haha


We put down some chests, and beds so that we would re-spawn there upon dying. Starting off, we didn’t really know what all we could craft, so we had to turn to the wiki most of the time. In-game, you pretty much would just put random items together and hope to get something. It was a lot like Minecraft in that regard. We managed to craft a campfire, and constructed some walls around our farm. We also secured a few vehicles from the town and nearby farmhouse. After getting a vehicle that the three of us could all ride in, that was when the adventures really started. Some were simply entertaining, while others became outright scary.

Some of the towns were full of zombies, and going in alone would have been nerve-wracking. We had built up enough guns, and other weapons, so that we could pretty much line them up and destroy them. It was a parade of death. You also have to worry about food, water, and infection from zombies and spoiled food. We spent a lot of time scavenging for food (including hunting cute animals), and medicine. After securing a few canteens, it was easier to stay hydrated. Melee weapons were super affective because they didn’t use up our stored ammo, but the closer you get to the zombies, the more likely you are to get infected. It’s a good thing you don’t actually turn into zombies. I will say my favorite part about killing zombies so far, is the mass amount of blood that spurts out of them. It really just looks like someone spilled red paint everywhere, but it’s actually quite fun to paint the ground and walls with their colorful insides. A little too much fun sometimes. You can also attach your friends, in which you get the same effect. This happened often… haha


We kept taking road trips, map in hand, and hitting zombies like they were speed-bumps along the way. If we got desperate for food, there was always the berries… Oh yes, the berries. Some of them made you trip like crazy.


Such lewd stuff in the chat! Yup, those are my friends. 😀

There were also Easter eggs, and stuff that you could find for achievements. We found quite a few of these, as we were exploring every inch of the island. I loved that some of the signs were references to famous Twitch streamers, one of them being Lirik. And then there were the chess boards everywhere.


This is not Mount Your Friends…


And here is one of my favorite parts about the game…. base building! I mean, who doesn’t love to build a place to call home within a virtual world? We collected materials, and worked day and night to build our first fully player crafted base. The old ship became extra storage. We kept adding to our base. It started out as a parking garage, and then we built up off of that. Then, I recommended a safe route to the farm, in which the giant overpass was created. We are quite happy with our newly made base. It even has bedrooms with working doors, and a watch tower.

I can definitely say that I enjoyed the gameplay much more when sharing it with my friends. There were a lot of humorous and stressful situations, but I know that I wasn’t experiencing them alone. A simple game, with limited gameplay, turned into a world of adventure.


Okay… I’m going to have to take your license away.

Upcoming Game: Black Desert Online Open Beta

Hello everyone!

Awhile back I mentioned a game called Black Desert Online, and there wasn’t a huge amount of information available at that time. Recently, Pearl Abyss has announced that they will begin open beta testing in Korea on December 17th. The game is still only in Korean, but there are rumors that a closed beta test for an English translation of the game might begin only weeks after. Until then, feast your eyes on the games beautiful character creation tool, and the action-packed combat. So far, the combat looks amazing!

Until next time…


Spotlight: 7 Days To Die

Hello Everyone!

Lately I have been really addicted to a game. I forgot how to sleep, and I forgot which world was my real home. Enter, 7 Days To Die, a zombie survival game by The Fun Pimps.

“7 Days to Die is an open world, voxel-based, sandbox game that is a unique mix of First Person Shooter, Survival Horror, Tower Defense and Role Playing Games combining combat, crafting, looting, mining, exploration, and character growth.”

This is the description provided on the website, and after playing for hours on end, I am not disappointed. The only word missing in this description is “brutal”. I had recently bought DayZ, and was going to write about my adventures in its zombie-infested… or should I say mostly player-infested world. My first experience with DayZ was a little bumpy. I spent most of it freezing to death, and then zombies ghosted through the door of the house I was hiding in and ate my brains out. Seriously, some realistic shit there. Oh, you thought I was being serious?

A few days later, I bought 7DTD (you know what that stands for, right? Look at the damn title)


I had heard a little about 7DTD, and a fellow gamer was excited and wanted to play it with me. I tried the game with just him and I first, and we spent our few nights alive hiding inside creepy run-down buildings, scavenging for for food and water, attempting to keep the door blocked off, and listening to the sound of a hundred or more zombies creeping around outside. Whenever the sun started rising, we would venture out into the world. We died a lot. At least the zombies don’t know how to ghost through doors in this game. Actually, you can see the door taking damage and getting destroyed as zombies slowly tear away at the thin piece of protection between you and them.



The world in 7DTD is extremely beautiful. There are many different biomes, and each one has different stuff to offer. You can survive in any of the biomes if you are good at scavenging (and avoiding zombies). Once we got used to everything, we decided to try out a public server. I was super worried about the pvp aspect of the game, and chose a server that said pvp and griefing wasn’t allowed. You can still kill other players on these servers, but you will most likely get banned for it. As soon as we joined the server, we ran into our first group. We were a bit nervous, but after asking if we could tag along with them, it ended up being a really cool experience. They proceeded to supply us with potatoes, tea, and gear as we followed them around. After doing some scavenging, we headed back to their area, and were surprised to find they had a few buildings built up, and some farm-land.


With their permission, we started building our own place. Before constructing, you have to chop down trees with an axe, and mine rocks. I started feeling myself getting drawn into the game. The people who shared their property with us helped give us a sense of a community. They even helped us build our first house, and plant stuff on our farm. While we were building, and making noise, zombies tried to infest our little village. There were enough of us that we were able to keep them from getting too close. With all of us building, we managed to get a pretty nice looking area.



In 7DTD, the more noise you make, and the more fires you have going, the more likely you are to get a horde of zombies. There was a point when we made a decent amount of noise, and sure enough, the sounds of zombies started coming from the tree line. A lot of zombies…


The game is most fun when you are trying your hardest to survive a horde of zombies, while trying to protect your buildings and hard work. You also have to worry about eating, drinking, keeping your health up, and taking medicine when you are hurt or infected. The water is usually murky and can make you sick, so you have to boil it over a fire, and some food can give you food poisoning. You can also get broken legs, so you have to be careful where you jump from. A broken leg can slow you down a lot, and put you in more danger. This game has the strongest sense of survival I have ever felt in a game. On top of that, it seems to also have a very supportive community, which most games are lacking nowadays. As long as you respect their property, you are usually welcome to stay the night at someones house, or receive a little food from them. The first group I ever met up with have become my regular playing buddies, and my friends. You can play the game seriously, or you can choose to just mess around and have some fun. There is a lot to do, and you can build whatever you want to. Just remember to protect it from the zombies.

The game is still in Alpha, but it is constantly getting updated. There are a few bugs, but none of them have felt game-breaking. The trailer is for Alpha 8, but the game is currently in Alpha ten and is really far along.
