Surviving Early Access Reviews30/05/2018 Duración: 44min
Here are two great survival games that look very similar - on paper. Don't worry though, once you log in to either, you'll see where the magic is. Dauntless is a PC game that just hit open beta, and it hopes to take on the legendary Monster Hunter franchise. It's a tough order to fill, but the brand new game does have a few things already going for it: a beautiful world, some very fun combat, and gameplay that really encourages you to find a group of friends to play with. Eden Rising, in comparison, is all about taking that group co-operation and turning it up to 11. It's you and your tribe of up to 7 others, on your own private server. No one else can help you fix this infested planet to make it livable. Fortunately, that's why you can craft your own gear. This one is a hybrid of too many genres at once, and yet it somehow works.

Wherever there is money, there are people who want to find a quicker way to get that same cash. While everyone likes a good deal on a game, we suddenly find ourselves in a new situation: should we be nervous when we see a game over 50% off? When you open up your new game of Ticket to Ride, and many of the pieces seem to be missing, or the manual is printed without several pages, is there a chance you've been ripped off? Fortunately, we spend some time in this episode talking about two new favorite games of ours in the last few months, Entropy: Worlds Collid
