I'm really into farming games lately. Ten days ago I picked up one that just came out on the Switch called Farm Together. I was completely surprised by the type…
Remember ECO? It’s that sandbox game built to educate kids/people about how your actions impact the world and environment around you. Our community of friends played exactly one year ago…
I’m having a really, really good play-through of Stardew Valley right now. I’ve only ever seriously played through once, but that was immediately after it originally launched on PC. Right now this play-through is on the Switch, and I’m playing 100% exclusively with my wife.
Together we sit on the couch with the Switch docked so it’s on our tv, and she holds an iPad and looks up all the great little details on the wiki that she and/or I want to know (we determine how much we want to spoil) while I control our joint character.
We’re halfway through Winter in our first year, and I think we’re making really good progress! We’ve actually managed to finish the entire craft room in the Community Center, and made headway into nearly completing several others. Right now the biggest thing holding us back is actually getting to the desert.
The title of this post pretty much says it all. According to Steam I’ve put in 53 hours into PixARK so far, and it really feels like I haven’t scratched the surface.
Progression was really slow at first. We were surviving (well, mostly) with spears and wood logs. We were running from just about every monster imagineable. Then we started taming some dinos. It started slow with Ptero, which basically allowed us to mow down bunny rabbits. Then it grew to bigger game.
Using our strategy of carrying a player in the Ptero’s claws, we advanced to taming Argentavis. Those bigger birds basically allowed us to protect ourselves against most predators who might wander into our area, but most important to hunt things like Gem Spiders and other monsters in that tier. From there, it was only a few days until we were in the big game.
