A complete newb trying out the game for the first time and loving it!


Recommended Posts

Yeah, I know I'm late getting into this game but I have followed it since release looking for a chance to have some time left over to play it and finally I could! So I decided to record a lets play series on it.


I just jump straight into the game with only having looked up the controls beforehand. I have no idea how to play the game otherwise and I have not watched any gameplay on it, just screenshots, because I didn't want to spoil anything and experience everything by myself!


Thankfully I have played some survival games before (which I won't mention here  ;) ) so some things came pretty natural, even though I actually tried to punch a tree to get wood....


So if you want to watch a complete newb trying out the game and trying to not starve for the first time please check out my videos! I certainly have fallen completely in love with the game and will keep playing it!  :love-struck:


Please keep the spoilers to a minimum though!




I will try to put out 3 videos a week on this!

Episode 2 & 3 is up and episode 4 is on its way up to youtube!


Still not much of a clue what I am doing other than that everything seems scary. Is there anything except for pigs and small small rabbits in this game that doesnt try to eat you?


At least my beard is getting manly and I've survived so far even though it was close a couple of times... too close!

Whoa! Havent posted here for a while but the lets play is still running and the game is going great! A new episode will be up later tonight as I am about to record it! Hopefully I will learn some new things!

Thanks to everybody that have been giving me tips and advice! It's been great and not spoilerish at all!

From now on I'll embed the episodes here instead to make them easier to access so you don't have to watch it from the start if you want to jump straight into the series and follow it with me!

youtube videos should automatically embed on these forums just by posting the link. I'm not sure why yours aren't. Let's see...


Yea Tobogoblin, as soon as you get to 7 posts (I think) you can edit and embedding will also work.

Great! Thanks JBeetle!

Couldn't find anywhere on the forums why I couldn't do the basic forum stuffs! That explains it! Will continue the series embedded here but right now I've started Reign of Giants as well so gonna have to do both for a while until Willow bites the dust in the original one!


Gotta say that the game just became A LOT harsher (not that it wasnt already ;) ) in RoG.
