I like persistent progression in my RPGs. Survival also is really overdone.

That said, it looks great for what it is, just not my cup o tea.

An Early-Access Open-World Crafting & Survival game?! Wow! Surely nothing could go wrong!
inb4 you lazy shills do the whole "nuhhh it's nearly feature complete" "nooo it runs great on all systems" "stfuuuu it's in a great state now and only getting better" "noooo the roadmap has so much planned" schtick. It's already tiresome.

>devs know about bugs for years before they're addressed
welcome to software buddy. I guarantee you that every bug you have ever encountered in a released game and that wasn't a progression blocker was found and logged by QA at least a few months before launch, if not years. That's just how it goes. I bet this guy found some minor edge case issue that only he cares about and is having a meltdown that it's been in the game for a while.

I don't. If someone needs convincing or pushing, chances are they won't get into it or go back after a short while. Save yourself the hassle and/or money and just find other people to play with, it's not like Valheim lacks players.

>An Early-Access Open-World Crafting & Survival game
It's actually an Early-Access linear boss rush/physics simulator game with survival elements that fit really well. More shadow of the colossus + minecraft than zombie survial game 291.
You can go anywhere but each boss kill unlocks the tools needed to not get 1 hit killed and survive in the area where the next one is.

You can build traps and totally cheese enemies, while at the same time the bosses and some late game enemies will completely fuck up your base if you try to just wall up and snipe them to death with a bow.

Game's great, I'm having all kinds of fun with my friends
the only other survival crafting kind of game we've played together is a bit of minecraft ages ago, I prefer this because my friends can build the house whislt I go out and explore.
It feels like a real adventure and the environments are beautiful.

You can parry and block their normal punch and then counter attack, you can block their aoe smash attack/cleave IF your shield is strong enough (block power) and can absorb the damage. I haven't tried it with bronze shields but iron shields and up shouldn't be a problem. If I had to guess I'd say get at least bronze armour and shield.

Nah,have to stop everything you are doing because a meter is going to hit zero that if you dont fill it up in time will kill you if fucking bullshit in itself.

It downplays a lot of the horseshit tedium of survival games. Chopping down one tree gives you enough wood to build half your base, and food is easily gotten. Also, food only buffs you for combat, there's no survival meters, meaning you don't have to drink every 3 minutes or your character will die.
The combat is easily best in the genre too, simply because it's actually functional and isn't absolutely dogshit like literally any other game.
>>

sell this game to me /vm/

Any advice on where to build up a base now that I'm getting access to the swamp? Not sure if I should relocate close to the swamp so I can harvest iron easier.

I usually hate third person games and do not think it fits survival well. I played this game and it was okay. It has some fortnite vibes with the art, building, and gameplay which is a little off putting. I also think the game is very overrated. It was fun but the boss battles were easy to cheese and the gameplay feels wide as an ocean deep as a puddle. There is a lot of stuff but not really any depth or nuance. Idk, it can be fun and is worth the money, just overrated.

Played it and finished it. Was a lot of fun with a group of 5. Took forever to find the last boss, my friend spent so much time just sailing to different plains biomes. I'd recommend it if you have a solid group and want to have some laughs together.

Played for 1.5 hours, combat is dogshit, crafting is basic, world is basic. It's all so basic, if this game came out 5 years ago sure I'd probably enjoy it more but at this point it feels like any other half-baked survival craft.

I get to have fun playing Old School Farming Simulator, because the combat isn't very good.
I turned 3 Carrot seeds and later 3 Turnip seeds, into a food production machine.
>friends keep yelling at me to stop putting crops back into seeds, and just eat everything, because "we'll just find more seeds"
>I ignore that, and continue putting 100% of the harvest back into seeds
>require multiple expansions of the garden, including having to move the entire base further away
>friends eventually see the progress I made
>turned those 6 seeds into more food than we can actually eat between harvests
They quickly shut the fuck up, about me wasting time with farming.
>end up with more than 500 Carrot and 500 Turnip seeds after each harvest cycle, after setting aside ~66% for eating
>suddenly farming takes 30+ minutes to even plant all the seeds
Pretty hyped to do it all again, with Barley and Flax, once we build a base in the Plains.

That's not what streambait means.
Streambait is a dumb game that they can yell, and make loud noises over, while letting the kids watching laugh.
I don't know many people who can turn Viking Terraria into that.
You're thinking of something like Fall Guys or Among Us. Those are streambait games.
Valheim would only bait people into watching another stream.
