Stranded Deep – Dave’s Diary, Day 1*

Day 1:

Actually, I just wanted to cross the Pacific for a business-meeting. The usual stuff. But sometimes, things get weird, and some other times even weirder. Today, it’s none of those two, today my life as I knew it ceased to exist. I was on my plane and something didn’t feel quite right: the weather got worse every minute and I decided to get up and mix myself a drink at the bar. It should be the last civilized beverage for the foreseeable future, but I didn’t know that yet.

As I walked back to my seat, I already felt a heavy weight on my soul, and next thing I know it is me, diving in an underwater tunnel which once has been the interior of my plane. Flames and bursting floods fought against each other, while I knew only one direction: up, up to the moonlight. As I reached the surface, my eyes gazed over burning pieces of wreckage and finally they halted at a rescue vessel. I entered it and managed to paddle away from the heat. As the next day began, I could see a small island: if I didn’t want to end as a nourishing meal for a shark, I had to reach that. As I finally set my feet on the ground, I checked my pockets for useful stuff: a lighter, a knife, a waterbottle. Okay, better than nothing. Not knowing anything about survival, I began to collect branches, killed little crabs and learned how to climb up trees. The latter activity had two positive effects: I managed to spot other islands for further exploration, and I could get my hands on some coconuts. What I learned then was that some treatment with my knife made said coconuts drinkable. Some more usage of my shiv and they became edible. Nice. I don’t know how to make a fireplace yet, and the sun begins to settle. I hope this nightmare is over soon!

*Stranded Deep is available now as a Steam Early-Access-Game for currently EUR 14,99. You can find it here

I'm building a Totally-Awesome-Do-It-Yourself-Steam-Machine-Which-Also-Plays-Other-Media - Part 2

Welcome back, my friends, to our epic project. Today we’ll finish what we started some days ago (some more as planned, I know, I know). Since we already covered which parts should go into the Totally-Awesome-Do-It-Yourself-Steam-Machine-Which-Also-Plays-Other-Media, we are now free to concentrate on assembling and finally setting up the whole thing software-wise. In the end, we will have a machine that plays all of our video- and audio-entertainment via XBMC, and all of our games via Valve’s Steam. And the best part: all will be fully controllable with a DualShock 4 Controller from the PlayStation 4. Why? Because we can! Let’s doooo iiiiiiit…

Mob City (2013 -) - Daves Pilotenschein

Auf Mob City freue ich mich schon seit etlichen Wochen, zählt die Serie für mich dank ihres Settings im Los Angeles der 1940er Jahre doch zu den ganz heißen Eisen dieser Season. Mittlerweile habe ich die ersten beiden Folgen geschaut und es wird Zeit für ein kurzes, wie gewohnt knackiges und kritisches Resümee in Form eines Pilotenscheins, viel Spaß...
