:shock: what the smeg :!:

Got a message last night from an American PSNF who joined my community, turns out you can increase the harvesting rate and build rate of Exiles in single player mode.

Now instead of gathering 7 pieces of stone with every button press I now gather 70 :shock:

:| been plugging away for weeks at this game and now suddenly a whole new world opens up to build anything I can imagine :D


:| does feel a bit like a cheat mode though, but its just to tempting to not exploit.

Not a word that exists or has an equivalent in Japanese perhaps, but more likely just a copyright issue.

:| So I've been beavering away for ages now and thought it time to update my progress, :oops: still haven't left the first area as such or made much story progress either.

I just like the way I can dip in and out sometimes just gathering materials or building new mini bases, even just going on thrall hunts and NPC camps raids easily fills the odd hour here and there :D

Building traps for the games world bosses...

Image
Image


Anyway unlike say Fallout 4 where you limited to certain areas here you can build almost anywhere so instead of a behemoth mega base I've instead created a huge network of roads and bridges and mini bases..

Image

And have uploaded 6 clips of my efforts to YT today.

(please note I use the same piece of music taken from the Conan film for all clips, cant really find anything else that fits really, also making use of the shareplay fast forward a lot given how long it takes to run my roadways, this game is so much bigger than say Skyrim)


First we start at Shifting Sands my central hub base (still adding to it one decoration at a time) to Slavers Bay where I originally had my first big base, this is now a mothballed area as such, though when I unlock the world map/teleport system I will be able to jump back anytime to farm Thralls.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gimVEmy ... -zL21Zd-Ol


Next a tour of the rebuilt Slavers bay where I spent probably the first 40h of play...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e2rd0CJ ... Zd-Ol&t=0s


This one is a short run and tour of my Steelfire factory...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dvtw-31 ... Ol&index=4

:| higher grade items and equipment/building materials require high grade resources, in this game like most of its genre requires you mine the basics then refine them.

In this case to make steel you must...

Build a smelter.

Stock it with fuel.

Mine Iron ore, and smelt down to make iron bars.

Build an alchemists cauldron and a tannery.

Kill people and animals, skin them, turn the hides you get in to leather at the tannery, and collect the by-product Tar.

Mine Brimstone.

Place the Tar and Brimstone in the cauldron to make Steelfire.

Melt the iron bars together with the Steelfire to finally :roll: get Steel Bars.


:| and steel is just a grade 2 item....it goes up to 4 :shock:


:lol: yes it is laborious at times but my loot OCD just loves it :oops:


Anyway, here the steel making process in action (the vid is speeded up x2)…

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uS0crzS ... -zL21Zd-Ol


Next we have Fort Thrall the mini base I use to farm slaves next to the Summoning Place (major game world location) here you find a mix of jobs thralls from dancers to cooks....

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wExHiUB ... Ol&index=2


And finally one of my traps in action as I kill the overworld bat boss...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GYkWhda ... Ol&index=1


:oops: and yes I screwed up my first run, hence my corpse :roll: which I even forgot to skin....stupid Jeem.

Get Lost in the Woods When The Forest Launches on PS4 in November


The setup is that you're the survivor of a plane crash, and you need to go out into the wilderness to find your missing son. To do that, you'll need to feed and water yourself, as well as keep warm and secure at night.

Most interestingly, it's completely open ended, so you can go about playing the game as you wish.

"[The Forest] encourages creativity. The game doesn’t tell you what to do, so everyone will experience their own version of the story. We try to give players as many options as possible and it’s been surprising for us how different individual playthroughs can be. Some players will focus on combat and exploration, whilst others will focus on building the most insane base possible."

It also features a full crafting and building system, allowing you to make weaponry, equipment, and even big shelters. What's more, you don't have to face the forest alone -- up to four friends can explore the world together.

Japanese Sales Charts: Conan Exiles Cleaves Its Way to Number 1 on PS4


Well, we're not quite sure how, but Conan Exiles has leapt straight to number 1 in Japan on PlayStation 4. The survival role-playing game (you know, the one with visible penises) moved 32,000 copies on Sony's system, and that was enough to secure the throne. My Hero Academia: One's Justice also made the top 5 on PS4, but only managed around 16,000 copies.

Despite Conan's best efforts, however, sales of the standard PS4 actually decreased, dropping to around 14,000 units. At least the PS4 Pro fared a little better this time around, hopping to 9,000 units. Maybe people just want to see those barbarian genitals in 4K? Or are they censored in Japan? To be honest, we're not really willing to find out.

New Hardcore Survival Game SCUM Hits Early Access


Have you ever played DayZ or even PUBG and thought to yourself “I wish I felt more like a real human being”? Ever wonder what it would be like to have RPG elements layered on top of a survival shooter? Well, even if you haven’t, there’s a new game from Devolver Digital that is seeking to give players one of the most in-depth survival games ever and it’s called SCUM.

The game layers Dungeons-and-Dragons-style stat systems, where every point in constitution, or dexterity can make or break your gameplay, on top of a loot-based survival system to create a game that actually takes your characters metabolism into account, as well as your intelligence level when crafting, or your weight when sprinting.

The game’s release trailer can be found below.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NX9JnqiuEk0

This game is the next step in the hardcore survival genre, but while it is going where no game has before, it may serve the video game industry more as a barometer for what players actually want. Many survival games focus on hunger, thirst, and sometimes warmth, but SCUM goes way beyond this and introduces a metric ton of micromanagement that players may be looking for.

It also appears to include some mechanics reminiscent of The Hunger Games, or The Darwin Project as well as a matchmaking system to find players for various deathmatches.
