I downloaded Valheim last night, what a fab game.


What world does everyone play on? Is there a choice

I do have a soft spot for French hot hatches. They are bad for me but so good.

Made my first boat in Valheim last week, went exploring, found a village on some meadows, tried to invade, got my ass handed to me by some Draugrs. Respawned a million miles away back at home.

Painstakingly re-mined copper, re-crafted armor/weapons, made a new boat, went all the way back. After picking up shit from my gravestone, I took out a bunch of Draugrs, tried to take the last building in the village only to accidentally drop through the roof right on to a Draugr spawn point where a Draugr Elite was waiting for me - and killed me on the spot. Guess who forgot to create a bed so that I had a nearby spawn point? :'(

Carry materials for a teleport gate and plonk one down on the shore when you land, that way the "naked get your stuff back run" is a lot quicker

Well, it's funny you should mention that...

After getting killed on my second run, I decided for attempt 3 I wouldn't bother to re-make armor, weapons etc, I'd just run in naked and take my stuff back. Mined just enough copper to make bronze nails for boat 3, travelled all the way out there, made a bed in a nearby abandoned hut so that I wouldn't be miles away if I died, ran in, grabbed grave number 2.

After a couple of rough starts I finally managed to take out the Draugr Elites x2 and spawn point, take back grave number 1 and set up camp.

At this point I decided I'd return to my original home, pick up supplies, pop by one of my camps to take down a portal I'd created there so that I could reconnect a portal from the Draugr Village to home. Did that, back in the boat. So far so good. I'm in the boat, with all my stuff + supplies for the portal, minutes from my new base in Draugr Village... get smashed to shit by a massive sea serpent.

Just a little shout out for NARITA BOY which I bought yesterday and then spent all evening playing.

Game wise it's a fairly standard action platformer with some light puzzling, all done well but nothing ground-breaking, it's the aesthetics and in particular the incredible music that really elevate this one.

On GamePass for 'free' which I don't have so I paid £20 for it. By all accounts it's pretty short (7-8 hours) with not much replayability but that's fine with me, not every game has to be a 50+ magnus opus.

Here's a playthrough video, if you like the look and sound of it, give it a go I'd say.

It probably doesn't help that my saved file has everything unlocked, included the higher difficulty, and that I've not played it in months, but I barely got anywhere with the Binding of Isaac: Repentance DLC last night. I think at best, I managed four levels, so I've only seen a tiny bit of the new content; there's some nice new music and some challenging new enemies and bosses so far though.

Should keep me busy over Easter.

Subnautica.

I've been so excited crafting tools that I haven't really grasped where to get a steady supply of food or water from. I know I need salt for the water, but struggling to find any.

The day-night-day cycles are a marvel.

I'm shit at this.

Fish. Look for the pink ones for water.
