So for the past few days I’ve been watching some videos and have been really excited to try this game. I finally got it tonight and so far I’ve gotten killed by a wolf, I’ve starved, and I got gunned down while cooking my first batch of chicken breast…and I love it! I’ve never been big on PvP games. But it just makes total sense in this game. It is a survival game. I’m not sure why people whine about getting killed. Does it suck? Sure. But it makes me think harder about what I need to do to survive. I love the concept so far. For any old school BBS game players, it reminds me of TradeWars 2002. Anything can happen to you at any time.
Only thing that’s troubled me so far is lack of resources. Finding rocks to gather from has been specifically difficult. I once ran around for a good 15 minutes and couldn’t find rocks or anything to kill for food. Not complaining, just noting its difficulty. On the YouTube videos I watched they never seemed pressed to find these things.
