Steam has added a new ‘item store’ feature. Now, in addition to the player-driven community market, developers can run their own stores (where they set their own fixed prices). Rust is the first game to take advantage, and they’re undercutting some community prices. Hmmm. I’m interested to see how this shakes out.
Stream sniping is when someone watches your stream to get an upper hand—to essentially cheat—against you in a game. It sucks.
Steam survival hit Rust is adding women characters, and you won’t get to choose whether you’re a guy or a gal. Some players love the idea. Others, not so much.
First Rust messed with your skin. Then your dicks. Now you might not have a dick at all, even if you wanted one.
Faces and skin tones? Just the beginning. Now we’re getting to the real meat of the conversation. Beware: NSFW.
Many games let you choose your character's race, but not Rust. The chaotic survival game is doing its best impression of the gene pool—randomizing who's white, black, and everything else—and players have reacted in unexpected ways.
I miss the good old days of NBA Street and NFL Blitz, back before all the big sports video game franchises became obsessed with hyperrealism and little else. Back then, it didn't matter that I knew next to nothing about football or basketball.
A month back, news came out that Rust—the ultra-successful survival game from Garry's Mod creator Garry Newman—would be rebooting. Then, a few days ago, Newman's Facepunch dev team revealed a new game. That announcement was met by outrage from Rust players. Why work on something new when your successful but famously…
If you didn't like the way things were panning out in survival sim/trouserless apocalypse Rust, that's cool. The developers are chucking it in the bin and starting over.
This accurate real-world representation of the survival game Rust by Paddymazz points out that running around naked with a hatchet or with a stone is only a good idea in a video game.
The last things that come to one's mind when playing Rust are its relaxing ecosystem and Mother Nature (well, unless you count all those naked characters). And while the game might not have a calm narrator, here's YouTuber Penal Cast, and a funny, Planet Earth-ish take on the otherwise intense sandbox game.
Over the weekend, the developers of open-world ex-zombie survival game Rust have deployed their newly-created anti-cheat software on the official game servers. The result? 4,621 banned players.
Open-world survival games where you need to worry about other people more than the fantastical enemies. Hugely successful creations that are in alpha and are nowhere near finished. Weird shit happening when people mess with each other. Yes, Rust and DayZ are pretty similar. But, as of last night, only one of them will…
The open world zombie survival MMO Rust must be one of those games, where shooting someone will not just freak out the victim, but also the shooter himself, thanks to glitches like this above. Maybe Clayface-physics are Rust's answer to the zombies in DayZ that can walk through walls and floors.
Two games. Both about surviving in a post-apocalyptic world. One lets you force-feed people disinfectant. The other lets you run around naked and bash people with rocks. I had to know - which has friendlier players?
When I started playing Rust, I went looking for advice from more experienced players. I sure found it.
A crude comparison to make, sure, but also a fair one. Because playing Rust feels exactly like playing the game someone made when they thought "wow, wouldn't it be awesome if I could play DayZ and Minecraft at the same time?"
