Our videos of The Long Dark

The Long Dark has been available on Steam Early Access for a little while now, but since we sadly never got any answer from the dev team, we finally decided to buy the game on the very first day of the Steam sales. As you probably know, The Long Dark is a survival game in which you have to fight against the unforgiving weather and the local fauna to stay alive as long as possible. Only the sandbox mode is available for the moment, so all you can do is freely explore the open environment, loot everything you can and see the next day. A story mode will be added in the future, which will definitely add some incentive to play the game if you're anything like us. Indeed, as promising as the game looks in its current state, it needs more than mere survival to make it truly appealing to us in the long run. Now if you're into survival games, go for it, Hinterland Studio's title has a superb atmosphere and it manages to convey an incredible sense of loneliness and despair.

Where it all began... and ended

Let's keep exploring

Out of the first person survival genre, this is the one that interests me most. Hope to give it a go sometime, nice to hear it stands out.

My love for snow environs in games makes me want this bad.

About the game


What's up?
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX The best conquest modes are assault/double assault. They need to bring them back... but not for Bad Company. (3 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX But they're also introducing new field upgrades too which just seem to further break predictable encounters. Lots of give and take. (3 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @MikeManiac61: Battlefield 1 conquest sucks. They've improved it (or are?) by introducing a neutral bleed state (tied flags = no ticket gain). That's a partial fix. (3 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @MikeManiac61: Nah conquest is okay in Bad Company 2. I just don't like the movement, combat, or vehicle handling. It's all piss poor compared to BF3/4. (3 Hours ago)
  • MikeManiac61
    MikeManiac61 Unlike in past BF games if were down by that many, by some miracle we could eventually make a comeback. (4 Hours ago)
  • MikeManiac61
    MikeManiac61 @GriftGFX: After playing BF1 for awhile i feel the same. Still not use to the ticket bleed in this game. If you're down by 300 tickets in BF1, you've already lost. (4 Hours ago)
  • MikeManiac61
    MikeManiac61 @GriftGFX: PC wise i can understand BC2 wasn't popular there. Controls, especially on a mouse felt super sluggish and CQ was too small with massive chokepoints. I'd prob place BC1 ahead of BC2. (4 Hours ago)
