theHunter: Primal Game Guide

theHunter: Primal Game Guide Here’s a intro game guide for theHunter: Primal. Remember, this game is still under development so I’ll change this guide as the game gets updated. for game version: v113 | v2015011402 Last updated: 12 Jan, 2015 Intro You take the mission to recolonize Primal Eden, a primitive world inhabited by dinosaurs. For this, you will have to hunt and survive on the planet. The controls are straightforward: move with the W, S, A, D keys (forward, back, left and right) and look, aim and shoot with the mouse. You interact (pick rocks and open cases) with the E key, F to throw the rocks and I to access the inventory. Each slot of the inventory has its own key (1 to 5). You also can sprint while pressing the C key and go crouch and prone with the Ctrl key (SHIFT to get up again). You can toggle auto-run pressing the Q key and free-look mode with the X key. The game has two playing modes, single player and multiplayer. Both require internet and steam connection. In single player, or more accurate – private game session, you face the world by yourself. As for multiplayer, you can play with other players, in cooperative mode or against each others (PVP) – and the world. In the game the time is 12 x faster, so one day cycle is about 2 hours of real time. You start the game with nothing more than some clothes, a bow, pack of arrows and the SettlerMate. When continuing a game, you will start with your previous items. When you die, you start a new game. The SettlerMate is a GPS / tracking device that you can use to see yourself on the map and get info about the animals tracks. For more information you can check out the ingame Survival Handbook. The player has...

theHunter: Primal (Early Access)

theHunter: Primal (Early Access) So, after some more hours in this game, here is the final review/opinion on theHunter: Primal. Although you must remember that this game is still in beta / early release phase,  so as the game gets updated, or goes final, I’ll change this review according. As I already said on my previous article about theHunter: Primal, the game is really fun to play. Contrary to theHunter (original), it’s a very fast paced game but retains all the great aspects of it. In theHunter: Primal, the player not only hunts but also has to survive in the dangerous world of Primal Eden. The game, currently, counts with 3 species of dinosaurs: Utahraptor, Triceratops and the T-Rex; 5 weapons: Bow, .44 Handgun, 12 GA Shotgun, .308 Rifle and the .700 Double Rifle; and some equipment like health packs, camo and a caller. The game has a pretty decent hunting area and the environment is mainly primitive look-like, remembering the Jurassic Park movie. By its own, it will make you spent some time just exploring and enjoying the landscape (I did). The animals are well modeled and have really great textures. Each specie has male and female variants, and as for the AI, it’s decent. All the species have characteristic animations, and sounds, that you can use to predict their action, like when they have detected or spotted you. The carnivorous will track and hunt you down when they spot you, while the herbivorous, Triceratops, will run away. The factors that seem to be accounted for detection are sound, vision and smell. At this moment, and I hope that in the future they will, the species don’t interact with each other. The most dangerous animal in the game is, of course, the T-Rex. One bite and you’re dead. But the ones I hate the most are the raptors. These buggers are almost...

Cabela’s African Adventures

Cabela’s African Adventures “Explore the vast wilderness of Africa on foot and by vehicle, where you’ll go head to head with the most ferocious beasts on the planet as you attempt to take down the biggest of the “Big 5:” The Rhino, Lion, Leopard, Cape Buffalo & African Elephant!” Review As all games from Cabela’s, Cabela’s African Adventures is focused in a story rather than real hunting. Once you finish the game, in story mode, there isn’t much you can do here other than roaming around the areas hunting normal game animals or repeating the story. Besides the story mode, this time, they also present a “Shooting Galleries” mode where you can walk along some tracks and shoot animals like an arcade game, which offers a bit more fun (and game time) to the game. The game story is revealed with some nice animations resembling a comic book. Here, you get to be a big hunter called Mason going on a African safari, from the savannah to the desert and jungle. Mason is payed to try to find the pieces of a lost tribal statue meanwhile hunting the dangerous animals, and in the course of the story it will also get a bit romantic. As for the game, it has decent graphics (not too real, not too dummy-like) and a fair enough of everything, from weapons to animals, areas and missions. As you play along, you can upgrade the weapons by finding hidden objects (fossils) and besides the story missions you also have some free hunts you can do to earn XP and unlock hunting abilities. After some time playing, you will start to feel that the missions resemble one each other, being to stalk or survive or shooting/boss fight, but they will have you entertained and busy while playing them. As for the animals, they don’t have that much dynamic. Not...

HU PowerPack 1.01 update

HU PowerPack 1.01 update Here is the first update to the PowerPacks! This update has some minor fixes to the games but big changes in the installers game support. For the games, i’ve fixed a bug in HU 2009 and HU 2010 that was preventing .30-378 Debs Ultimate Hunter Xpecial Edition to be loaded in the games when using the orange camo (thanks to Brian T. for beep me up on this 🙂 ). For the others HU’s (2 to 2008), they just got a version bump up. As for the installers, among other features, i’ve added an alternate install method so that you can install them even if they don’t detect the game installation. To install them this way, just move the installer to the game folder (where the base.scs file is located, except for HU 2) and install from there. Now, when installing this way you must be cautious because if you are installing a different PowerPack for that game (i.e.: installing HU PP 4 in HU 2010 game folder), the PowerPack will get installed on that game and it will brake it. I will also take the time to, once more, thank to Brian T. for his donation to the site. Thanks Brian! Now, on to the PowerPack download page!...
