05/08 || Builder Express || Fallout 76 || Merit Badging

I really hate how many VoDs I'm randomly behind on. This VoD, way back from the beginning of May was mostly just a day I could not figure out what to stream. I have been using Fallout 76 as my "not streaming" relaxation game on tuesdays but for some reason I decided I'd try it on stream. The plan for the day was to try and get 2 merit badges done so that we could rank up in the pioneer scouts from Tadpoles to Opossums....yeah that basically didn't happen.

What did happen was like 4.5 hours of trekking around appalachia taking pictures of pretty much everything we saw, it’s quite a bizarre collection we've gathered. I believe instead of getting even one merit badge we ended up getting about 80% through like 5 of them.....wait no we completed our Archery Badge and mostly finished our Hunter badge.

03/19 || Builder Express || Satisfactory || A Whole New Desert

Well, it's here, the game is out...sort of? I feel so weird saying an early Access game is out or not, but hey it's here on early access and you can play it. I'm super enjoying it, I've found....like 1 serious bug? And while annoying it's not game breaking, hell I didn't even find it on stream, for some reason, I think because the servers are offline at the time of writing when I try to load my save the game opens a private session.

For some reason because of this it spawns me as a new character with no inventory, but it does leave the previous me standing around so I can go kill him...me? For my stuff.

Anyway that was nothing about what happened because the game was sweet and I feel odd trying to describe it, not sure I can without being able to show y'all the gameplay.

This game just came out in Early Access so it will 100% be changing as that program goes on, but if it looks like you cup of tea now you can get it on the epic launcher.

03/08 || Builder Express || Satisfactory || Damn it, Definitely Going to be Buying This

Oh my gosh, this freaking game. Ok, so this game has been in Alpha for a while, but the day before this stream Coffee Stain, the Dev's announced it would be releasing on Early Access on March 19th. At the same time they also announced that everyone who'd signed up for the alpha would be getting keys for this weekend. And of course the important part, they lifted the NDA so it could be streamed and recorded, and holy butts this game is fun.

The conceit of the game seems to be, minecraft but what if it was pretty and you could automated EVERYTHING. And oh my goodness I freaking love the automation, sure I spent most of the game feeling like the conveyor belts were outsmarting me, in my defense the Conveyor splitters and mergers being a later tech was unexpected, but still, this game is fucking grand. Honestly I'm a bit annoyed I like it as much as I do because it will be actively playable about the same time as Sekiro and I can't have two great games eating up my limited free time, curses!

Just a warning that the game is not out yet, but the game comes out in Early Access on March 19th, and it can be purchased right here https://www.epicgames.com/store/en-US/product/satisfactory/home

02/08 || Builder Express || Astroneer || So Pretty, So Confusing

Uhf, I freaking adore this game SO much, but there are just some fiddly little things it does that tick me off to no end. Like the weird camera controls and the fact that the backpack is an interactable object.

I also haven't played it since, but that has WAY more to do with there being too many games that I am also enjoying playing. Its fallen into the weird niche that the Wind Waker, Pokemon, and Iconoclasts are in, games I started, want to keep playing but don't super have the time for right now, but now that we're starting to clear out more games maybe I'll be able to play this more?

If this game looks like your jam and you want to get it maybe consider buying it with our Humble Partner link, both we and Take This will get a small cut of the proceeds.

01/30 || Builder Express || Subnautica: Below Zero

Well this poor game had some launch issues where the launching exe wasn't included in the steam download, but the dev's had it fixed and running in like under an hour. So join me for the early start of Subnautica: Below Zero.

Like the game has full voice acting which is such a weird thing to realize OG Subnautica didn't have. Like the data pad had a voice but she was the only one. We also ran into some weird visual bugs, mostly some frame rate issues but eventually we figured it out. Plus hey we now have an alien AI living in our head....for reasons.

We played Subnautica: Below Zero which can be bought on Humble Bundle here! We will receive a portion of the proceeds if you use this link.
