Zurvival Saturday (126): 7 Days to Die


Hey ya'll, this week I wanted to share my latest gaming obsession 7 Days To Die. Holy moly this game is intense. I've only had the game a week (Xbox One) but it's quickly grown on me and become a favorite in the household to play. Now if you haven't heard of this game yet here is some background info:



7 Days to Die is an open world survival video game. The game was released June 28, 2016 by Telltale Publishing. If that name sounds familiar that's because they also produce The Walking Dead video games as well.

The games plot is fairy simple. World War 3 has happened, you the survivor must find shelter, food and water, as well as scavenging supplies to fend off the numerous zombies (hinted to be the consequence of nuclear fallout) that populate the area. In this instance that area is Navezgane, Arizona.

As of this posting, the game developers are still working on a more complicated plot beyond just the survival aspect to the story so if you're looking for an in depth story line this game might not be for you.



What I like about this game:
 OK, I admit, I was really skeptical about this one at first. A friend of mine whose pretty much as equally Zombie obsessed as I am said that the game was nothing more than Minecraft for Adults. Now, he's right, it is. However, where this game excels is that every 7 days you're faced with a Horde of Zombies who attack you wave after wave, relentlessly all night long. Depending on your settings that means 10 minutes or more of intense Zombie action. Your goal is to be spend the time before the wave hits fortifying defenses, scavenging supplies and making sure you can outlast the Zombie swarm that defends.

What I don't like about this game:
Minimal character customization, game lag (pretty sure this is a porting issue that will probably be fixed eventually), lack of overall storyline and the Zombie models could use more variety. Yeah the 6 or 7 types are cool but if the whole world has gone to hell in a handbasket their should be more diversity among the dead.

Overall, for 30 bucks I'm happy with this game so far. I'd definitely suggest checking out if you haven't already. Let me know what you think if you do. I'd love to hear your thoughts and opinions.

Cover Reveal & Giveaway: Hear The Wolves by Victoria Scott


Today I am so excited to share the cover reveal for Victoria Scott's upcoming novel Hear The Wolves ! Not only does this book sound fantastic but fun fact, the cover designer drew every snowflake, every wolf, every letter, and every detail that went inside the book by hand. How cool is that?!

Release Date: March 28, 2017
Publisher: Scholastic

It's survival of the strongest in a contemporary, girl-versus-wild middle-grade debut from Fire & Flood author Victoria Scott!

Sloan is a hunter.

So she shouldn't be afraid of anything. But ever since her mom left the family and she lost hearing in one ear in a blizzard, it's been hard to talk to people, and near-impossible to go anywhere or do anything without her dad or big sister within eyesight -- it makes her too scared to be on her own.

When they leave her home alone for what should only be two nights, she's already panicked. Then the snow starts falling and doesn't stop. One of her neighbors is hurt in an accident. And the few people still left in Rusic need to make it to the river and the boat that's tied there -- their only way to get to a doctor from their isolated Alaska town.

But the woods are icy cold, and the wolves are hungry. Sloan and her group are running out of food, out of energy, and out of time. That's when the wolves start hunting them . . .

Book Blitz & Giveaway: Mercy by Misty Provencher


Title: Mercy
Author: Misty Provencher
Genre: Genre: Young Adult Paranormal Fantasy
Hosted by: Lady Amber's PR

Blurb:
My will to survive is the first thing to drown.
I know, because I hold it under myself.

After facing severe tragedy in life, Madeline assumes her death will be easy.
But the angels do not come to take her to Heaven.
Instead, what retrieves her is something she never expected: a gargoyle.

Delivered to Truce, the King of the Gargoyles, Madeline now has choices she never wanted. She has the ability to take over the entire Gargoyle Kingdom, if she is willing to kill the king. However, looking to prevent takeover, Truce transforms Madeline, thereby granting her the ability to achieve the thing she wants most—death—if she can just find the human recipient for the Gargoyle Gift that she now has to give. It should be easy.

But lives, whether they are lived or not, are seldom simple, and Madeline’s past still stands in her way. Now, only a voyeur in the life of The Boy with the Golden Rod Voice, Madeline’s must reconcile her own life and death, if she ever hopes to have free reign of her soul.

While Provencher can ride a motorcycle, knows how to Karate chop, and has learned enough French, Spanish, and Sign Language to get herself slapped, Misty's life is dedicated to connecting with, and understanding, the people who cross her path.
