testing

just got a new solar powered keyboard and im just giving it a test drive. seems pretty decent so far :D. and its completely solar powered! how fucking cool is that! no batteries no wires. its so nice and thin too. i hate bulky keyboards. well typing seems to bne going ok, lets just hope gaming goes smoothly as well. the keys are slightly farther apart than im used to, but o well. at least the back space is the right damn shape, unlike my last one that shit bugged me. i kept hitting the \ key by accident.

i can control the volume with the keyboard again too, YAAAAY. since i got new speakers and there is no easy to get to volume control :D

preliminary tests seem positive so far

well thats just super!

so i had found this cool house, and had it all fortified and was finally feeling safe from zombie attacks. it was like day 12, so almost 2 weeks in. my computer shuts itself off for no reason... and corrupts my data.

i load the game back up, nothing , nada. day one, bag is empty, i have nothing. all my adventures, my house all gone D:

now i have to start over... AGAIN. im doing a multiplayer game now tho so maybe it wont wipe everything if something goes wonky.

*sigh*

more 7 days to die

so he got me the game on steam now, so we can play together in the same game.. i dunno why he didnt just do that to begin with. i hate buying the same game twice! but whatever.

attempted to try my hand at a single player game with zombies on again. been practicing a lot on the ps4 in  no zombie games so i really know my way around the controls and weapons now.
but the controls are different on the pc? well great!
ugh..

also discovered that you can tweak your game options. so i turned zombies on low, never run, and left on 'cheat' mode.
i cheat rarely. as the scavenging is the fun part for me. BUT its almost a necessity for construction. if im going to build any kind of decent base that zombies cant eat thru, im going to need the cheat menu.

tried doing it legit for the first few days. holed up in an abandoned gas station. there was a ladder to the roof and a fence around the backyard. seemed like the perfect place! i set up camp on the roof and prepared to shoot em when they came close.

2 two nights before red night (the 7th day the zombies go all nuts and swarm in a bloodthirsty hord) several zombies found me at my gas station.
i was pretty confident that they couldnt reach me, so i didnt panic much. but i couldnt see them well from the roof of the gas station, so i didnt get to shoot them all. i could hear them slobbering and snarling below me (scary!) but couldnt do anything about it. then i hear the fence break....

so now im panicking. its dark as shit and i cant see and im swinging my shot gun around looking for them... and then a shadow appears in front of me on top of my hideout! the zombie bitch actually climbed the ladder?

aaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhh


so i blew away 2 zombies that managed to make their way to the top of the gas station and i waited for morning VERY paranoid...

must find a new hideout and soon. only 2 days to red night.


at dawn i wanted down the road a bit to see what i could find. there were some very high end looking houses on a small dead end street. i had to clear out the rotters out. they came out frome everywhere when i started down the street, and my shot gun blasts just drew in more. but it was daylight and they only came from the one direction so it wasnt too bad.  then i had my choice of these 3 houses! i picked the biggest one (mistake)

really nice place. but there were zombies trapped inside, i could hear them. i make my way around the entire house looking for a safe way in, but i really didnt want to be ambushed in there. i hadnt seen the inside of this house before (i had seen both the others on my ps4 version already) so i didnt know the layout. i blew out a few windows hoping they would come to me but nothing...

just the groans and scraping and snarls continue.. so i sit on the roof of the garage thinking about how im going to get thoses guys out of there withotu putting myself at risk, and they burst thru the wall!

they sensed me outside on the garage roof, so they ATE THRU THE UPSTAIRS WALL into the crawlspace above the garage.

blam blam, 2 less zombies. but now my new house is all fucked up lol

time for the cheat menu. i need to make this place zombie proof, and fast

7 days to die

so my bf has been playing this game on steam recently and wont stop raving about it. we were at gamestop picking up something and he saw it there for ps4. he practically BEGGED me to get it so i could play it too.
i was like uh.. no i HATE zombies. survival horror is not my genre.
but he insisted i try it, said it was like skyrim, id love it! so yeah i broke down and bought it.

right off the bat the controls made me a little motion sick. there is little to no tutorial whatsoever so you are basically on your own trying to figure out how anything works or what you have to do to survive.

luckily i didnt get attacked right away, and nate helped me get some supplies together before i even saw one.
the combat is dreadful.
IF it had controlled like skyrim, now that would be something. but the weapon swings are all haphazard,  the enemy mechanics are dreadful, and its damn near impossible to take down ONE zombie let alone a hord.

which is what i experienced on the 7th day.. a FUCKING HORD. now anyone who knows me knows i have a thing about zombies. 
i dont like em. i have been terrified of zombies since i was 9 years old and only jut stopped having nightmares about them after watching the walking dead.

so needless to say, this was very disconcerting. i think my exact words were

AAAAHHHHH!!!!!!!!


yeah they killed me. thne i was left naked and alone in the desert again forced to go look for my pack of supplies i can lovingly scavenged or crafted over my 7 days. i even had a chainsaw! :D
chainsawed thru that first hoard after finding my pack and spent the next 7 days preparing.

really starting to get into the crafting. you can make just about anything, i could build an entire house practically if i had the material.
and roaming around the wilderness scrounging for supplies has its own charm. i really started to enjoy my adventuring and crap pile.

then day 14 came.
i had built a pit of spikes around my found trailer home and reinforced the doors. didnt help.
there were SO many fucking zombies that the first few destroyed the spikes by dying on them, and then the others just walked over it. they tore down my doors and ate me... again..

FUCK THIS GAME!!!



















then i discovered online that you can just play in creative mode. so i made a new game with NO zombies. just me and the wilderness with nothing and i need to find food and shelter and warmth.
now this i can enjoy. just me vs the elements and i dont have to worry about rotters coming at me from behind while im chopping down a tree.

i found a great old house DEEP in the woods and im holed up in there now. fixed all the holes but the windows are still broken so its drafty, and its a snow landscape this time. so i need to be warm. and there isnt really any water supply nearby and food is quite scarce.

yes THIS i can get into . no worries about face eating just plain ol survival. it will be challenging enough just to find enough food and water to live, plus wandering off to find other supplies or the settlement that is supposedly on this map somewhere.

im rather addicted to this thing now
