I fucking love dinosaurs.

Next Tattoo?

Mix dinosaurs and a crafting/building/survival game, I am all in!

Really. Like I feel not much more explanation should be needed but for the hope that I can get a few more people to join this game, I will hype some more.

An action-adventure survival video game that was first available as an early preview on the PC back in June 2015 then added to Xbox one in December.

Features-

 

  • Food, Water, Temperature & Weather
  • Harvest, Build Structures, Paint Items, Dinos and Yourself
  • Plant, Farm & Grow
  • Tame And Benefit From Numerous Creatures
  • Learn to Craft more Items with Engrams
  • RP Oriented Custom Cooking System!
  • Collect Precious Artifacts In Dangerous Caves
  • Summon The Ultimate Life Forms
  • Advanced Tribe System
  • Hardcore Game Mechanics
  • Explore And Discover
  • Large-World Persistence And Meta-Universe
  • Robust Steam Workshop Mod Support and dedicated DevKit
  • High-End Next-Gen Visuals
  • Host your own Dedicated Server.

 
Full release is set for June and I can’t wait.

So getting into the game itself; while multi-player servers are an option for you to join…I’m antisocial and don’t care for griefers, I just played alone to begin with.

You spawn naked and afraid. And let me say, please pay attention to your spawn zone when you first get it. There are a ton of options, here are a few suggestions for at least when you are just starting out.

  • Make Sure Difficulty Isn’t Too High
  • Shorten Night Time A Schoch
  • Harvest Amount ^
  • Taming Speed ^
  • Spawn In A Easy Zone!

My first couple of spawns did not go great at all. It was only a few seconds before I was face to face something far larger and far angrier than me.

Ok alone is not the way to go…

This is where that extra Xbox comes in handy. (Note that this part is not necessary, you can just co-op play joining a friend but this does have a set back, you can only move a certain distance from the host)

Set up server-bing bang boom-

Join with husband and friend-

Ok this is better.

As you can see having friends does help. I’m unsure how great the community is, so I would however recommend playing on your own some before jumping into the public.

There’s a lot to do! You can go from a stone spear to an assault rifle. From eating berries to having a fridge (yes, a refrigerator) stocked with yummy jerky. From cowering in fear to being king of carnos and rexs.

 

 

Speaking of-the real highlight here are the dinos and other prehistoric creatures.

in dinoin dinos 3

Over 50 different species. Many many tame-able and most serving different uses.

IE doedicurus for stone, mammoth for wood, frog for killing bugs.

Maybe it’s just me, but I find it pretty effin cool.  I felt like a giddy kid walking beside a bronto the first time

and was throwing out Jurassic Park quotes whenever I could.

They have even more things planed, here are just some of the great steps in the weird evolutionary process that are being added.

One thing I haven’t explored yet are the bosses. As of now there are four.

bosses.pngAwesome, right? Unfortunately, only the Broodmother is on the Xbox summon-able by gathering certain artifacts and taking them to one of the the three mystical obelisks around the map.

 

So if you were curious as to why you spawn naked and afraid on a strange island with prehistoric creatures and an implant in your arm with these strange glowing obelisks around, here’s what the Official Wiki has to say-

STORY-This is an empty page so far. please post your theories on what the story of the Ark is.

GG, guys, GG.

Links-

So there it is guys, if your going to be buying a prehistoric survival game, do yourself a favor make is it this one. It’s a great deal for $35 considering how much time you can really spend in this game.

First let me say my rant isn’t about the fact that this is just a controller that’s price is almost as much as some systems.

My issue is I can’t %€#_=$€/£^¥ find one to €%$€%’*^( buy and I’m pissed as a  %$&’&”‘.

shut_up_and_take_my_money

Really, I shouldn’t have to beg.

Chief marketing officer had this to say “Here’s the product we totally underestimated, if I could have built 10 times the number I built, I would have.”

Really Microsoft?!

You release something new and hyped about on 10/27, just when people are almost ready to start shopping for the holiday.

“Announced at e3 the controller boats hair-trigger locks, improved thumbs tick sensitivity and swappable compensation including two different D-pads. There is also button remapping”

Let’s take a look–

OOOOOoooOOO

AAAaaaHHhhhhhH

south-park-and-its-gone-meme

Oh what the shit?!

Current estimates are for as far put as March now. But still, how does this happen for a company this large?

It’s like it was set up to fail.

Now something that is in stock and available for purchase…

xbox-one-elite-bundle-64

The bundle.

Yes, a 1TB ssd Xbox One and the new controller sold together for around $500.

Oh fine I guess I’ll just spend $500 on something I only wanted to spend $150 on.

You may think that was sarcasm, but sadly no, that’s my plan right now.

There were other reasons for that decision as well, but the main one being I can find another way of getting the controller without being ripped off by some 3rd party seller. So I guess I’ll just get the bundle.

Wait a minute…

What if that was their plan all along.

Tricky bastards.

GG!

What sources say.

What sources say.

As a follow-up to what I was saying on my last post, I don’t really watch blockbuster movies. Maybe it’s a inner hipster thing or maybe I’m just lazy and don’t bother going to the movies.

Point being, I would rather exhaust the Netflix than go out in public with…

*shudders*

People.

funny-alone-movie-theater-empty

My goal in life is to be able to afford to rent out theater.

So here’s a  small list of some ones that Josh and I have found that deserve a look at.

  • Chef
  • +1
  • Fido
  • God Bless America

So first off

 

Chef

John Favreau, Sofia Vergara, and John Leguizamo. Most movies I end up watching are either horror or scifi. This is an odd exception. More of a comedy than anything.

A divorcee (John F.) gets fed up with his fancy restaurant restraints and decides instead to start a food truck.

chef-the-film

The description doesn’t do it justice on how entertaining it really is. All the characters are lovable and completely believable. Even the main characters son, who joins him on the road.

I usually hate child actors. (they always overact) But this kid is great.

And the food. Omg the food.

Droool

Need another reason to drool?

Sofia-Vergara-Low-Cut-Chef_7

I could listen to her talk all day lol

 

 

NEXT

 

+1

“Three college friends hit the biggest party of the year, where a mysterious phenomenon disrupts the night, quickly descending into a chaos that challenges their friendships — and whether they can stay alive.”

This movie is a mind fuck that doesn’t stop. So a sum up would be, Time skips that duplicate people and the repercussions of it.

I don’t want to give away too much but just trust me its worth the watch. If nothing else IMDb has it at 8/10 on sex and nudity and 7/10 on alcohol and drugs. So great party movie.

 

NEXT

 

Fido

This one is simply to explain. The 50’s + Zombies = greatness.

I’ve already said I will watch just about any movie with zombies in it and this one just so happens to be a great example of why.

18699552.jpg-r_640_600-b_1_D6D6D6-f_jpg-q_x-xxyxx

Just a simply story of a boy and his pet…zombie.

 

NEXT

 

 

God Bless America

Ah, well intentioned killing sprees. Horrible in real life, can be amusing in movies.

photo_04

A dark comedy (the best kind) crime movie directed by Bobcat Goldthwait.

I mean really though, it’s sad how much I agree with the points made in this movie.

72ef7917d4557ac182f18dae3c3b6457

While I don’t condone violence, if there was ever a reason to go on a spree.

^^^^^^ would be it.

 

So there’s a small list of my suggestions. There are a few others I would offer-

  • Skeleton Twins *sarcastic dry humor from SNL stars
  • Cruel and Unusual *afterlife punishment
  • Perfect Host *very strange horror movie with a twist
  • Timelapse *more time traveling drama

I’ll try to keep updating my page though.

My Friday Night

Posted: May 23, 2015 in Movies, Random/Review
Tags: , ,

Just thought to share this.  Instead of playing destiny tonight,  I watched Sharknado  (I really had to convince my tablet that was a real word)

image

^Best scene ever.

^Had the best end theme song ever.

Anyway, watching Event Horizon now. More news and more important things when I’m not as melancholy.

GG!

Destiny has always been filled with high hopes and equally high disappointments.

She looks pisssssssed

We are not amused

But for the first time in a long time I can say hype has been met with actual fulfillment.

Things included

  • new social space
  • new weapons and gear
  • level raised to 34
  • new story
  • 3 new multiplayer arenas
  • new strike
  • Prison of Elders
  • Trials of Osiris

Ok so we begin finally being allowed to the Reef. Which is awesome because I always liked the look of the place. I’m not going to divulge too too much finer details but I will say I was happy with just about everything.

11269379_971083749577576_1994107469_n

The new social space is pretty and comes complete with some ghosts, a vault, mailbox, new cryptarch, bounty girl Petra, and the awesome fallen guy who serves as a translator and Prison of Elders dealer.

80

This guy is hilarious

The story here is that the queens pets betray her and are now going around getting other allies and weapons. (ok its a bit more complicated than that but for a sum up, that explanation will suffice)

In this story you get to go to some pretty surprising and interesting places.

11271106_971083722910912_137430067_n 11281731_971083716244246_1897749050_n 11281904_971083736244244_6683140_n

My first play through with my titan I got a good amount of loot. And everyone gets this little pistol which is decently badass.

11349852_971083742910910_1664625488_n

The new bounties are fun as well.

Simple guide for that-

  1. go to planet
  2. wait for wolves to prowl
  3. attack
  4. wait for more drop ships
  5. attack and kill big boss
  6. get ether key
  7. go find chest

Yeah, there has been a few times I didn’t find the chest in times and a few other times I was able to find chest, leave area, come back and get the chest again. So my best advice for this is look for the pillar of light or watch others around and hope they know where to go.

Now bouncing planet to planet doing story missions and bounties is fun but for me the real winner here is the Prison of Elders. Arena style fight with you and your fireteam facing 3 waves of random enemies for 5 rounds.

Each round is in a different environment with different enemies and the final round you face a larger boss. The level look pretty great and come equipped with nice hiding areas which you may or may not need.

At the end you go back to you starting room and are dropped down into a Scrooge McDuck like vault.

Sorry for the poor pic

Sorry for the poor pic

Now your first run though you were given a key for the big chest, but from then on out its up to you to find more keys via the other chest you open with the ether keys during bounties.

What did I get my first run you ask-

...I'll just leave this here

…I’ll just leave this here

See, I can’t gloat any because my husband has been trying for a lot longer (and with more skill) than me to get this.

I was just randomly opening chest and not even really paying attention to when it popped up what I had gotten.

But I did in fact get a Jellyhorn.

Ah yes, the rng god is a cruel mistress.

But anyway the new so far has been great and I love seeing new color choices. Even the old venders have new stuff. Like really, at ever turn there has been something cool to find.

11297889_971083752910909_730844187_n

So it doesn’t seem like I’m sucking up too much I will say I did have some disappointments. To have to deal with the queens people and not the Queen and her creepy brother themselves was kind of a let down. And as always DLC doesn’t add anymore voice over work for your ghost. I ❤ Peter Dinklage, I just wish more went into his character.

So my point is this-If you liked Destiny when it first came out but then got bored and gave up, its time to go back!

$20 is not very expensive to expand the game this much and to get this much more enjoyment out of it.

So go, go and find more enjoyment in a game you bought half a year ago.

GG!

Ok so I ended up playing Destiny all night and not writing.
So tomorrow I will work on that.
But in the mean time.
Have this hype—

Oh yeah!
Fun fact – I love farming sim!
So I will be passing that hype along as well.
GG!
