Watchsurvival Updated with Playable Tags!

Hello survival fans!  I've updated the survival games list with part 1 of the new tagging system I'm working on.  The survival games list will now inform you if the game is playable or not without having to figure that part out yourself.   I've also moved all games marked as playable to the top of their categories.  Hopefully this helps you game more and research less.   Have a good day everyone!

7 Days to Die Information Roundup.

So a lot of you have brought 7 Days to Die to my attention through comments and emails and after doing some research I must admit it has impressed me and seems to be a wonderful game.  I thought it would be great to share a lot of the information with others as well as those of you who have never heard of the game may want to keep your eye on this one.

 They (The Fun Pimps, http://thefunpimps.com/) were recently successfully funded on Kickstarter (over 500k) and have already made a huge amount of progress on their game. This game impresses me because it combines a lot of my favorite elements from different survival games into one game and appears to do so very smoothly.  According to their website the purchase page is currently down as they are changing servers but will be back up tomorrow, so those of us that didn't have the chance to support the Kickstarter can still buy the game and get access to the alpha version build as they continue updating it (like Minecraft, Project Zomboid, Don't Starve, ect).

Anyways on to the information, Starting with the basics.

The Dead Linger is coming to steam soon.

The Dead Linger recently made a blog post about getting into the Steam Greenlight program.  This is good news as I enjoy having as many of my games as possible on steam.  As I can see people that already own the game will be getting a key to add it to steam so all is well with the world. Read all the info on their blog post listed below.

Hey everyone!  Decided today was the day I had some time to do some updating.  I've updated according to most comments and suggestions and a few of my own additions as well.  Going to use this post as well to round up everyone's comments and add my own.

Q: "Awesome blog! I've been following it for a few weeks now, great stuff! Have you heard of the game called Survivor FPS?"

A:  I have now!  Thanks for letting me know I have updated the games list.  

Q: "Hello friend! Here is a few games I thought you should add
Left 4 dead
Left 4 dead 2
Dead Island Riptide"

A: Sorry but I do not feel those games meet Watchsurvival's requirements. Please read the requirements on the survival games list page

Q: "The War Z changed there name to "Infestation:Survivor Stories" So you should change that."

A:  Done.  I've updated the websites for that section.  

Q: " Check out this game: Rust"

A:  Cool find!  Added to the games list.   

Q: " Zargo, The Survivor Zero link is to an unused domain now! Not sure what is happening with it! 

A: Strange Indeed! I'm not sure what went on there but I did find a new website location to follow development and updated Survivor Zero to go to that link instead for the time being.  Thanks for the heads up. 

Q: Stranded 3 is now in development

A:  Nice eye!  I"ve added Stranded 3 development blog to the games list for now.
