Duna 1

So I’m currently going through my periodic phase of being addicted to KSP.  This time I’ve been using the USI Lifesupport mod ( https://github.com/BobPalmer/USI-LS/wiki ) to make things a bit challenging.  This mod requires you to keep your Kerbels supplied with food and have enough space to wander around if they are stuck somewhere for a long time.

The current mission which i’m working on is Duna 1, my first mission to Duna (KSP equivalent of mars).

Terraria: I have a space gun and it’s mine all mine!

So I’ve finally defeated the Eye of Cthulu in Terraria and I’m now starting to be a lot stronger. I also used explosives to destroy a couple of shadow orbs and caused a meteor to crash (which I mined). So I now have a space gun and better armor. Now the next step will be trying to kill the eater of worlds.

I have a space gun!

Terraria

2014-05-24_00001I recently bought Terraria on Steam when it was on offer.  It’s best described as a 2D Minecraft alike where you have to survive on a hostile world.  I’m still very much learning how to play it and have got as far as creating a small house for me and my adviser.  We can now survive the night without be killed by zombies or flying eye things.

I’ll post more updates as I learn more and expand my home!

I recently bought Space Engineers on steam when it was discounted. It’s pretty much minecraft in space the object is to build ships and spacestations. Like Minecraft it has a survival mode and creative mode. In survival mode you have to mine asteroids for minerals which you can smelt down and assemble into components needed to build things and run nuclear reactors to generate power.
It’s currently early Alpha but still fun. I like the fact you build your space ships and platforms out of blocks then fly them around. You can also enable space ships which fly through the game area which you can either salvage for parts or just take control of yourself.
