WatchSurvival is on Twitch! Plus my recent H1Z1 addiction.

Hello survivors!  I recently started up a twitch stream for those who are interested in that kinda thing.

Watchsurvival Twitch

I won't have no regular schedule or nothing but most of the time my playing times will be mid to late afternoon.  I will be streaming a lot of H1Z1 most likely but I will stream 7 Days,  The Forest,  The Long Dark ect as well.   Which brings me to the second point of this post!

H1Z1 is awesome!  Seriously,  I'm having a blast. So much so in fact that I've still not posted a survival list update because I can't stop playing the game.  I've been playing it almost every day since the launch day.  The devs have been really great with updates and community feedback and they have the game rolling in the right direction.  I try not to be biased here on Watchsurvival but I will be honest I'm enjoying the game a ton more than Dayz mod or Dayz Stand Alone.   H1Z1 has been built from the ground up to handle this genre and SOE has the means and the developers to make it into something great.   Please don't let the cheesy reviews scare you away from this one, there has been a lot of feedback from idiots trying to say this game is pay2win and that is simply not true which they would realize have they actually played the game in the first place before bashing it. Trust me I can't stand pay 2 win titles and I would not be playing this game if it was. Most other negative comments have already been worked out of the game as the game is indeed early access and many things need to be added and tweaked.  I sort of wish steam would not allow for reviews on early access titles because as I said most negative reviews are about things that simply need adjusting because it is a game in Alpha, but I understand why they do it. 

I'll end this post with a quick video of me and my wife and another close friend taking a truck some of you might find amusing!

Carry on survivors!

Updates coming soon!

Hello fellow survivors!  I know it has been a while since my last post but I'm still alive and kicking.  I'll will be updating the list this weekend to include quite a few new games as well as another Tag that people are requesting.  Survival list just keeps getting bigger and bigger!   Lot of good hopefuls this year.   H1Z1 Starts early access on steam tomorrow.  I am looking forward to that.   Project Zomboid just keeps getting better and better and I'm currently having a blast with the latest build of that as well. I've also been enjoying The Long Dark, it is quite nice.   Look forward to updates soon! Hope everyone had some Happy Holidays!

Keep surviving out there!

Watchsurvival Games List Updated! The Long Dark , Still Alive, H1Z1

Hello and well met survival fans!  I have updated the Survival game list to include a few more games headed our way!  I may not post much news as of late but I am indeed still trying to keep the survival games list updated which is the reason most of you are here anyways.  I really recommend following Watchsurvival on Facebook if you want to see updates for games and what most of them are currently up to as it is much easier to follow updates there from the different developers and games.  Thanks everyone! Keep surviving out there!

The Long Dark

Forums: http://hinterlandforums.com/

The Long Dark seems to be getting a lot of buzz right now and is being talked about as being a great survival game that will be more based on actual survival than most other games out there.  I am really looking forward to see this game take shape and see which direction it goes in. 

Still Alive

Still Alive seems to be a great little 2d based multiplayer survival game.

H1Z1 probably doesn't need much introduction by now unless you are living under a rock.  As an avid gamer of Everquest for years and a personal fan of SOE online games, I cannot tell you how excited I am for this game.  I am really looking forward to it and I believe it may be the zombie survival MMO that I honestly wanted Dayz to be.  I am trying to not jump on the hype train to keep myself from getting disappointed but I really hope this game is everything SOE is claiming that it will be.

Kickstarter for Still Alive up and kicking!

Hello and well met everyone! I wanted to make a quick post here to let everyone know about a new upcoming survival game that's recently made it's way to Kickstarter.  The developers contacted me and asked if I would let everyone know about there game and after seeing the trailer and looking at the Kickstarter campaign, how could I not?

The game is called Still Alive and it's a qoute "2D Multiplayer Platformer PVP Survival Game for PC, Mac & Linux."   The art direction looks really cool and different from what is out there and it sure does have a lot of really cool survival elements.  The page can be found at the link below and they have also listed Stretch Goals and rewards and many more other things.  Check it out it may be something all of you fellow survival fans are interested in.  I will perhaps post more updates later about this one as development continues.


Keep surviving out there!

Dayz Stand Alone is released on Steam Early Access plus Eidolon, Project Redfield added to survival games list.

The Day is here!  Dayz the game is now made available! The game is still technically in beta so do not expect perfection but it is already the top selling game on Steams List.  Check it out below, rest assured I will be diving into this very soon.  I've updated the forums link as well. 

Steam Store Page

A couple of new survival games have recently came to my attention as well.  I've added Eidolon to the games list, the information can now be found below or on the survival games page.  This is apparently a survival game based on  post-human Western Washington. The art style looks good and appears to offer a unique mix of graphics. Created by the company Ice Water Games.
