What are you currently playing?

Postby [FnG] Hanno » Sat Jul 06, 2013 1:14 pm

Thread changed so I might get some other ideas what to play.
So what are you playing and why is it so good?

Hanno is currently playing:
Cubeworld - small scale coop (1-5 peeps) adventure/explore game with cute voxel graphics:
https://picroma.com/cubeworld
Video:

Price: 15 Euros

What's so good about it?

At first glance the graphics look cube and blocky, but the landscapes that spawn are varied and interesting
and the style makes itself pretty. All landscapes are infinite and generated from a seed number so controlled random really.
Big content so far include towns, bosses, caves, dungeons, catacombs, palaces, ruins, bigtreey things are what I have found so far.
Mobs include all sorts of critters from dogs and cats to wolves, pigs, crows, alapacas, crabs , penguins. As well as NPC's and undead ghosts/vampires/mummies.
All of the animal's you can collect as fighting (and some riding) pets - ppppp pick up a penguin.
Skillset is fairly narrow, but all skills need to be aimed and you need to dodge or run away to survive.
Handgliders/boats/and riding pets give other options than walking.
Crafting is simple but the addition of adding spirit cubes to make enhanced weapons is good.
Overall the game is pretty light compared to a proper MMO, but it is fun. Your not tied down to quest lines or
completing an area so its more about exploring and jumping off the top of the next mountain.

This is an indy game and development is continuing so hopefully more content will be added as it goes on.

I'm not saying it might not turn into a level grindfest later on , but its certainty fun enough to keep me and Erin busy for a while.

Heat online :) Could this be one to try out for a wednesday evening for quick and simple fun?


I started rift as well though but real life and way to busy servers got in the way though...Will give that another try as life calms down a bit. It was interesting though.

I might get around to reinstalling this. Have you given up on Firefall?

I'm afraid so, the game just doesnt grip me, It seems to be al about mine stuff..upgrade gear. Heat at least for now seems to have that "if i dont break and aim for those bushes..will I make it...oh crap!!!!"

Re-install it, it brought back good mems for me :)

Hanno is now currently playing the Alpha of "7 Days to Die" Zombie Survival.

Pretty good and very smooth for an alpha, with quite a lot of recipes in and no crashes so far.
Not yet tried the multiplayer, but single player this is so far moderately difficult.
You don't want to be out at night at all, as zombies at night run twice as fast as you.
So it is a case of hiding in a safe house until dawn.
Currently 4 guns in game, pistol, sniper,smg, shotgun PLus a rocket launcher.
Other weapons include chainsaw, auger, axe, clubs, sledgehammer, landmines, TNT and exploding barrels.
The destructible scenery via voxels is nice and immersive. Explosions leave nice craters,
buildings fall in on your head if you take away the wrong block etc
Difficulty is due to be upped in next updates with more versatile (ie climbing) zombies.

It's raining here as well :-(

Currently having break from Zombies and playing HEAT (free racing game) with Eve.

Barbie nice to hear from you but not sure I can cope with another fantasy MMO at least for another year or two!
