If you've just started playing Death Stranding, or you've managed to avoid the Beached Things (BTs) this far purely out of fear, you don't need to worry anymore.
As long as you're prepared you can take out BTs pretty easily and harvest the cyrillian that they leave behind. It's a pretty valuable resource so having an easy way to harvest it is kind of essential.
Clearing out the main BT in an area also gives you some time without having any BT's around, and no rain to destroy your supplies! There's a lot of benefits to confronting the terrifying black gooey masses so it really is worth your time to take them out. You generally don't even require that many supplies, as long as you have a decent throw.
The minimum I would suggest bringing with you while going out hunting BTs is:
A full pouch of blood bags (4)
Two full cases of Hematic Grenades (3-4 makes me feel safer though)
With these on hand you should be able to take down your enemies. Watch the video below to see it in action.
Understanding EX Grenades
These grenades do have their purpose but can seem like a waste of your limited space. Understanding what each type does will help you decide whether they are beneficial to your style of gameplay.
First things first just a quick run through of how to obtain these in the first place for anyone who is unsure. EX grenades are "created" using Sams bodily fluids/waste. There are three ways to obtain them when in your private room, each pertaining to a different type.
Showering creates EX Grenade No. 0, Somewhat annoy any BT floating nearby cuasing them to walk away slightly.
Urination creates EX Grenade No.1, Much the same as No.0 except with much greater effect causing them to temporarily walk a great distance away.
Defication (Poop) creates EX Grenade No.2, Appears to attract the BTs to the location the grenade is used. May be good for setting traps of some sort.
EX Grenades can also be used to remove the coating of of black tar on the larger creatures as well. This allows you to cause more damage until the coating returns.
It's finally here! Hyrule Warriors: age of calamity came out today. Did you wonder what happened during those 100 years that link was napping? Get your hands on Hyrule Warriors to see what went down. Not sure about the game? Grab the free demo on the Nintendo eShop and test it out for yourself.
Darkest Dungeon is captivating as soon as you start it up but will that maintain. With so many games out there some just aren't worth your time and for me Darkest dungeon falls into the latter category.
Looking for an open world game full of quests yet with the options to craft and farm? Yonder might be what you've been waiting for! With its mix of crafting elements to build up the world and exploration you'll find yourself scouring the island to save the inhabitants from the murk that is taking over this island.
Genshin Impact: Gacha gaming that’s… good? I often find myself not knowing quite how to feel about mobile games. While capable of providing cheap thrills and alleviating temporary boredom, they generally don’t possess the sort of staying power more robust console and PC titles do.
Has gaming lost its magic? Are you unable to find a game worth your time? Do you scroll endlessly through your library and waste time watching trailers - but nothing engages you? You might have Gamer's Block! Don't worry though, there's hope for you yet.
The game is a blast to play. I am not one who tends to play these competitive first person shooters but I'm starting to think maybe I should be spending more time playing them. I did get better over the course of playing but still got obliterated each round. Some of that was due to glitching in the game but generally it was just me.
I don't play a lot of competitive first person shooters. Call of Duty specifically I haven't played since high school. That made getting Beta access to Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War a little nerve wracking. I figured that I should record my first attempt at playing this game so that you can what it's all about
Most games that I remember from years past are the classics known for their great gameplay. I can confidently say that's not the case for this game. The crazy nature of this game, from animation to concept, is definitely what has kept it in my mind all these years.
I bet there is a number of you out there who are going "Finally a third Pikmin!" Well sorry to burst your bubble but the game has actually been out for a long while. Whether you've never played the third game or just haven't touched it in a while the free demo in the Nintendo Store is worth the download!
Although the game came out 9 years ago it still has a lot of playability today. Whether you're just trying to find areas that you've never explored or creating a whole new build opposite or what you normally play there's numerous ways to keep you interested. With the addition of the Amiibo it can be even more exciting.
The game reminds me of a classic arcade side scroller game but with an upgraded 3D depth to the scenery. Flying in a plane (that can also fly underwater?) while shooting the things that come onto the screen to stay alive and hopefully upgrade as you go!
While we are awaiting the sequel in the much beloved “Breath of the Wild” series Nintendo surprised us with a prequel! Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity lets you play through the war in the years previous to the adventure we’ve come to love. Get through Hyrule as any of the previous heroes!
Nintendo has adamantly stated that the DS would not be brought to an end because of the Switch. This was hard to believe as the Nintendo Switch is very similar to the DS consoles. Staying true to their word for much longer than anticipated their latest update may bring an end to the DS.
