razing32I played this a while back with friends.
Kinda lost intrest when an update made progression more grindy.(to skills)
Is it sitll the case ?

It's always been grindy, so I'm not sure what you mean. In the pre-A14 days, the grind related to what you did. So if you did a lot of mining, you got better at mining. That makes sense, but they dropped that because lots of the other skills didn't - you don't get better armour by bumping into cacti, but that's what the game gave you if you did it enough. It was also very difficult to progress the science skills, because you needed certain items (forges, beakers, etc), but for balance, they needed to level-gate those items, or people would have ended up riding around in gyrocopters by day 10.

So it's now xp based. You gain xp from killing zeds, obviously, but also from looting, mining, and building - especially building, and especially upgrading blocks from wood, to cobble, to cement, to reinforced. After a certain amount of xp, you gain a level, and that gives you a point to put into anything you like.

So, yeah. Still very grindy, just a different grind now. And still a fun grind, in my opinion, given the hours I've put in.

Hmm , might need to give it another go then.
I remember i liked the old system for crafting/mining
Science was annoying to level up but it made finding a chemical workbench VERY exciting.

Chrome OS appears to be edging closer to Steam support with Linux

Don't Chromebooks have soldered in SSDs ? OF all things ?

Also , i barely trust google as a search engine let alone an OS provider.

Really wondering if in the future Linux will be the only OS(bedsides some BSD distros) that you actually KNOW doesn;t have telemetry baked in

Planet X-3 music ?
Isn't that the game from the 8-bit guy ? Doesn't he do his own music ?

It's not live. It's drunk
The store logged me out multiple times , lost items from my cart and failed to complete transactions.
I advise people to wait few more hours until things cool down.

EDIT
LOL - my transaction failed again and this time it referenced a game i bought 1 month ago.
sigh

CONSCRIPT is an upcoming top-down WW1 survival horror

CyrilI don't know exactly why, but this game reminds me some PS1 atmosphere, it looks nice!

Maybe because they claim it was inspired by Resident Evil and Silent Hill ? Those were PSX games as far as i recall.
