First things first, remember that PC I got for Christmas? (http://www.rfgeneration.c...16164.msg233177#msg233177) Yeah, neither do I. Heh. I returned it because it used proprietary parts, so I couldn't upgrade it. That said, I bought an Alienware Steam Machine (which I put Windows on right away. SteamOS? Really??) and I've been having an absolute blast with it. Sure, it's a pre-built PC (could've fooled me, it's only a little bigger than a Wii!), but it has a ton of power, and has played every game I've tried on it so far perfectly. That said, here's a couple games I've been playing on it, as well as an Android Game I promised to write about from one of my previous Gaming Adventures. (See here: http://www.rfgeneration.c...ts-At-Maker-City-3143.php)

ARK: Survival Evolved

"It's like, Minecraft combined with Castle Miner Z on STEROIDS! You must try this game! As of this post, it's on sale in the Humble Store!" That's what I typed on my Steam Profile about this game, and it's 100 Percent True in my opinion. This game is crazy fun, crazy difficult, and it's STILL being developed! (It's an early access game). Take the crafting elements of Minecraft, the survival elements of Castle Miner Z, upgrade the graphics, throw in some Character Customization, and you have ARK: Survival Evolved. I was initially nervous upon purchasing it due to the high number of negative reviews on Steam, but don't let those people lie to you! This game is VERY good! I wish I had someone to play it with, and I HATE Online Co-Op, so that should say something right there.

Doom (Doomsday Source Port)

First things first. For those who don't know, a Source Port is a program that allows one to play Doom (as well as Doom II) on a Modern PC, often with upgrades (like Graphic Effects, HD Resolutions, and Controllers). Now then, I'm sure we all know Doom. Described by some as "The Son of Wolfenstein 3D" (which it basically is), Doom is what I like to call the definitive First Person Shooter game. I don't think I need to explain too much about the game itself, but playing it using the Doomsday Source Port is tons of fun. You ever seen a 1993 Game run in 1080p HD? It's intense.

Five Nights At Freddy's

Five Nights At Freddy's is an indie-horror game developed by a guy named Scott Cawthon for PCs and Android Devices (I don't know if it's on IOS Devices too), and it...doesn't make much sense, actually. As far as gameplay goes, it's a solid horror title (I played it on my Android Phone), and it scared the hell outta me more than once. Story wise though, it makes no sense at all. When you start a new game, your greeted with a Newspaper Ad that requests a Security Guard to work the night shift at this kid's restaurant. Sounds basic enough, sure, and a guy on your phone explains that the Animatronics can and WILL hunt you down, but what is the reason for it all? And it just gets more confusing from there. Whatever the reason, as I said before, it's still a decent game, and it's not even 5 US Dollars (last time I checked), so if your looking for a cheap scare, try this one out.

I think that about covers it. Check back soon for more of my Gaming Adventures. Also, if you have Steam, and you end up getting ARK, let me know please.

I love Doom so much and still play it today quite regularly. I'm going through the WADs and MegaWads on line at the moment.
Good lookin out on the Doom Source ports, Redd.  Can't believe that I've played those games for so long and haven't discovered this.  Thanks, man.

The Five Nights At Freddy's thing made a bit more sense to me once I watched a Game Theory (on Youtube) on it.  Just make sure that you have finished it and do not watch any of the later videos until you have played the games first.
