‘Rebuilding the Giant Bridge.’

Conan Exiles. It’s kind of like Minecraft, only with visible genitals.

GameTyrant reminds me that Conan Exiles is dropping in about three weeks:

Sorry: been chasing the Secret World Legends Pinata all day.

You know how it is: you schedule your entire day around logging into Secret World Legends every hour to kill the Goddess of Death, and next thing you know, it’s 11 PM and you’re wondering where the time went.  Especially since there’s a new update to Conan Exiles today, too, which means more things to dress up your dolls clothe your thralls with and add to your dollhouse castle.  Soon I shall have a wall around my entire encampment, and then my archers will kill those mammoths for me, safe in my fortress of Skyrimcraft… (more…)

The new Conan Exiles expansion has dropped.

I have fiddled with it a little, because I am up to my neck in Filth right now in Secret World Legends Tokyo.  So far, my major observations about the new Conan Exiles content is that some of the stuff that you can make now looks cool, makes sense for a survival game, but I don’t know how you get your Thralls to actually do it while you’re out adventuring.  Also, I apparently need to fix my stats because my character is too generic.  Fortunately, the level cap of 50 is now gone, although I don’t know what the new one is.

Conan Exiles is a fun game, for what it is (which includes being Early Access); so check it out if you’ve got a spare twenty to spare. It also runs better, after this latest performance patch. So there’s that.

In the mail: my Conan Exiles T-Shirt!

And I suspect that FunCom and I have slightly different definitions of what ‘XXL’ means.  They are located in Sweden, after all.  Still, it’s a pretty design:

Hey, you playing Conan Exiles?

…Technically, I still am; which is to say, I was, and in a month I probably will be again, as soon as I go and finish saving ANOTHER galaxy from having to do its own fetch quests. But for right now I’m playing Mass Effect. Which is a shame, because Conan Exiles is offering a bounty on exploits:

Similar to Ark: Survival Evolved’s bounty program, Funcom has introduced a cash-powered vehicle for tracking down exploits in their Early Access survival game, Conan Exiles.

[snip]

Funcom says it’s looking for “Serious exploits which can be used in online play and on multiplayer servers” that give players “big advantages in the game, like duplicating items or being able to build inside mountains/rocks.” Players spotting these kinds of exploits can email the developers to provide them with the info…

$100 to $500, depending on the exploit.  First person to report gets the money. So, hey, go for it. I gotta go rescue that cute asari reporter from something or other, myself. Swear to God, no wonder the Initiative went pear-shaped…

Noooo not my Conan Exiles base camps!

They’re gonna do a server wipe; I assume that this is gonna include the single-player server that I’m currently mucking about with. And I was just getting my penultimate base the way that I liked it, too.  Ach, well, Early Access.

So, apparently Conan Exiles saved FunCom’s butt.

Which is good to hear, because FunCom’s The Secret World is still my favorite MMO.  Although it hasn’t had much new stuff, and I was worried about that, mind you. But I hadn’t realized how worried I should have been:

Speaking to Engadget at GDC, [FunCom] creative director Joel Bylos said the company was so close to bankruptcy before Conan Exiles it was borrowing from investors to make payroll. Seeking a way out of this dire situation, Funcom took to SteamSpy to see what sort of games sold strongly enough to make the bank needed to keep the company afloat – and which it could afford to make. The plethora of dodgy survival games on Steam was the answer.

“These games sell a lot, but they’re not that high quality. We could definitely hit that bar,” Bylos said. And lo! Conan Exiles was born.
