Things have not gotten better or worse but the mood of myself has.
So to cheer me up I went and got Steamworld Dig: Fistful of Dirt.
Why this game? Cause i already played and beat it.
Then why the blue hell would I buy it again? I didn't. My bro got it for PS Plus on his PS4. Played it. Sped run to the end. LOVED THE STORY. However two achievements have eluded me on this game that I want to try.
No Death Run
Yep for a game close to 6 - 10 hours (of straight dedication) for limited timers, and about 12 - 25 hours for those explorer types i got some tips for ya miners in this game.
1: Death is avoidable with well thought out planning. Death costs half of your gold so late game it becomes a problem if your out of gold and orbs to get stuff for you to use to go back to the surface.
2: Don't force a death because your items have failed you. Always get the pickaxe upgrades and the pouch upgrades. No one like having to stop just to make a trip up to the surface to sell your stuff only to lose half your profit cause a mistake or two.
3: Ladders are mandatory. I don't think i need to explain but when you get far enough to understand water and steam is unavailable this is a very much useful tool. Keep them stocked often.
4: Teleporters. Only get the one and use it when you hit a spot where you can't progress without a trip to the surface but don't wanna risk your last few hits of life. I know that feeling.
