Valheim celebrates first birthday with info on caves and the Mistlands

Somehow, it has been one full year since Valheim entered early access. Seems unlikely. I’d buy six months, I’d buy two years, but one year? I don’t think so. Still, the makers are quite insistent, so let’s humour their charade and hear what they have to say about their future plans for the base-building Norse mythology survival game. Steam Deck support, caves in the Mountains biome, a pretty moth in the Mistlands… okay, sure. Read more

Cyberpunk 2077 manages to be a top seller on Steam in 2021

A terrible beginning didn’t stop the RPG from CD Projekt Red from ultimately being successful. Kotaku reported some interesting tidbits from Valve’s recent stat dump for Steam, most notably that Cyberpunk 2077 quietly became a top seller in 2021. This might come as a surprise to many, as CD Projekt Red’s game has been controversial for being buggy and unfinished. That might be turning around, though. While the very top of the charts are populated by games like New World, Valheim, and Naraka: Bladepoint that generate revenue continuously even after someone starts the game, Cyberpunk managed to make the Silver…

Become a viking wizard with this Valheim mod Skyheim

Valheim already has its own sort of magic with the forsaken powers you get from each boss, but if you’re more into to slinging fireballs around you may want to try out Skyheim. This mod adds runes that you can craft with loot from bosses and dungeons. Summon a light instead of carrying a torch. Scorch a forest full of Greylings with your fire. Oh, and teleport yourself back to your bed at will. It sounds pretty powerful, but chucking fire and ice around sure looks like a good time. Read more

Valheim mod lets you overclock your smelters

After a strong mining sesh in Valheim, I believe there’s no greater agony than smelting all the ore I’ve gathered. Yes, it’s satisfying, but I am a terribly impatient individual who demands my metal bars now, not later. That’s why a mod which lets me overclock my smelters, kilns, and blast furnaces with Surtling Cores has me interested. Finally, I can speed up the process. Read more
