For those who like their Fallout 4 with a little bit of a nautical theme, the new DLC from Bethesda, Far Harbor will be as salty as you like it, with new weapons, new sea-creature enemies and a whole new mystery for Valentine's Detective Agency to solve.
The DLC will set you back £19.99 and will be available on May 19.
It's been quite some time since Lewis departed. I know why he was so unhappy and left, it's because his base had been raided and I wouldn't give him any C4 with which to retaliate. To be fair, at the time, I didn't know how to make C4 and it's the toughest thing to make on this island, so asking me to magic it out of nowhere seemed a little silly. Left to my own devices, I have been quite busy. I found a hollowed-out wolf skull and wore it like a hat. The look is rather gruesome, so here's my shadow, which I'm sure you'll agree evokes memories of Teen Wolf with Michael J Fox.
I also found a partially-destroyed water bucket. This blue bit of metal had a section missing from it and a grille in place of the metal, so I popped it on my head and found it to be rather fetching, along with reducing the risk of headshots. Sadly, I lost my improvised helmet when I got attacked by a bear. Speaking of which, the most peculiar things happen on this island. Sometimes, when I fall from a great height or am mauled by a bear, I fall to the ground screaming, only to wake up in my bed. I find that I have basic clothing and tools with me - and an apple - but when I return to where I remember being last before waking up in bed, a dead body is there. Dressed in my clothing. Bearing my face. Surrounded by flies and carrying everything I had before whatever happened happened. It's a very, very strange feeling, when you're stealing your own stuff back. And I know it's my stuff and my body because I scrawl things on my paper map. And there it is, my scrawlings. Anyway, when I wake up, I wake up famished and thirsty. So I tend to go looking for less hostile creatures for food. Like this chicken!
I really can't make up my mind if this is genius or a disaster in the making, but Rocket Lolly Games want $35,000 through Kickstarter to make The Rocky Horror Show: Touch Me, a rhythm game based on the musical of much the same name.
I'm seriously torn. Seriously.
You can fund their efforts, for better or worse, right here.
Nintendo haven't done much for E3 for a few years now, but with their new console, codenamed the NX, just been announced for March 2017, you'd expect them to have their shiny new console offering at the world's biggest electronics expo, wouldn't you? Well, wouldn't you? Nintendo being Nintendo have said "well, I'm not gonna" or words to that effect, bringing instead a look at its new Legend of Zelda game, which will be playable for the first time at E3.
Sure, a new Zelda game is something to look forward to and of course they'll be bringing more to the party than just that, but it seems that the lure of the bright lights and booths of E3 just doesn't do it for Nintendo any more. Let's just hope that the company's maverick ways see them have continued success in shunning the norm; Sony and Microsoft focused on hardcore gamers and Nintendo brought out the Wii, after all. And that was, to be fair, a very shrewd move.
What a week it's been. Draekal, bless her heart, told me that my chainlink fencing, which I thought to be pretty, new-fangled and, most importantly, secure, was actually pretty useless. Not wanting to tear my buildings down, I decided to build a wall, Donald Trump-style, all around my compound, culminating at the front with a massive gate, which I installed the wrong way around, but it works just the same, so I'm happy enough with that.
I told you last week that Lewis had built directly opposite my place. Well, we're even closer neighbours now since I've expanded my grounds, though he doesn't seem to have been on in a while, so doesn't know that Draekal and I have defaced his building with an additional sign.
I named my wonky bridge.
Draekal, whose bridge is not wonky, named hers also. I'm quite enjoying labelling landmarks and plan to do more in the future.
I have arrived on Rust Island. It's quiet and the wildlife is pretty aggressive and for the first five or six days, I didn't see another soul. I spent the time building my compound. A secure space where I can survive, living my life in this strange, new place. I'm no longer a man. I'm now a woman. Thankfully, I was able to make clothing from plant fibres and cloth from the less dangerous creatures of the island. Boars are docile and slow, deer and horses are skittish, but yield more resources and bears and wolves are still better, but have a horrible knack of taking chunks out of me, which I'm not finding enjoyable in the least bit.
Following my first few days of gathering resources such as stone, metal and sulfur, I set about building my compound. It's a stone affair surrounded by chainlink fences. I can tell you, making chainlink fences from metal fragments is rather time consuming, but I think you'll agree the result is pleasing.
My mum always said that if you didn't have anything good to say, you shouldn't say anything. That's probably a lie, knowing my mother, she'd have said nothing of the sort. So, I thought I'd just say a few words about Skyling: Garden Defense.
Now, I've not played the game - it's pretty ugly and a rip off of much-loved games of the 1980s - but what caught my eye while scanning through the press release was that it said it was part of their "Less-than-a-Latte pricing scheme". Less than a latte. Not as, one would presume, expensive as a latte. Now, we all know that Starbucks* is pricey when it comes to coffe, right? I mean, it's all right, but it's not the cheapest (or best) coffee on the planet. But just looking at pricing for a latte (a cinnamon dolce latte, in fact**), you can expect to pay $4.25 for such a beverage.
The price of Skyling: Garden Defense? $4.99. I need say no more. But I will. $4.99 is patently more than $4.25. So, thanks, Mighty Studios. You have lied to me about the pricing for your icky-looking game. Perhaps a career in politics awaits.
* Other coffee retailers are available in a similar price range. ** What? A cinnamon what? What even is that?
Reviews for the taster song are overwhelmingly positive, with one individual saying "I was already hyped but now I just shit a chicken." Which, I think we can all agree must have been a delight.
You get sixteen tracks for your money, six of which are 'soundscapes', whatever that might actually mean. And, if you've the pennies (or cents) to splash out a bit, you can even get it on vinyl. Mmmm. Vintage.
It's about time too, don't you think? Yes, you read it right, UFO Gamers is back. This is version ten. UFO-X, if you will. Here, we aim to bring you video games news, reviews and opinion from our community here at UFO Towers.
And, of course, the community that plays together stays together, so to that end, I've brought along a little friend: Rust. Now, if you're not familiar, Rust is a first- (or third-)person shooter, with base-building, survival, radiation and Russians. Lots of Russians. And it's jolly good fun. And we have a server. Just search UFO in the server list and you'll be well away!
The game is in alpha at the moment, which means it's constantly being updated, there are regular wipes and you lose everything on those occasions, but still, it's shaping up to be an amazing game and you can grab it on Steam for £14.99 right here.
No, we're not on commission, this isn't an advert, I'm just letting you know that you can usually grab me on the Rust server or the UFO Gamers forum should you need me.
Who am I? Well, I'm the editor-in-chief. My name is, and has been for quite some time, LorD.
