Another important thing to remember is the cannibals can't jump as high as you can. So you don't have to make an actual treehouse to feel safe on the surface. You can jump two blocks high so just make a couple of two block high steps and as long as that is in a open field or the highest point you can build there. Just make sure you keep the rest at that level so they can't dig their way up. They don't seem to do it on stairs but to feel safer you could always get rid of the last step(2 blocks deep) every night.

As far as I know there is not but there are plenty of coconuts around the various islands. I tried leaving some green on the coconut trees in the previous version but they didn't seem to grow back.

Also the best place to have your eventual homebase is on the map with the ship. Cannibals never attack there at night. As far as I know this did not change in the update.

This one is not my strategy but it works well. You can actually make land bridges between islands. It takes a while but using all those earth blocks you get by mining you can hold the jump button in the water and swim backwards while placing a long solo string of blocks with one empty space between the surface of the water. That avoids the damage sharks can give you.

Just make sure you go back to shore and save there often! Then when you decide how wide you want to make the bridge(3 blocks seems plenty to me) swim out the same way dropping blocks again. For the middle you can just walk along either side to fill it in. If you go all the way to where it asks it you want to go to the next screen you can actually connect with a bridge on the next screen so you never fall in the water.

A more safe method that takes a bit longer is make the first string of blocks out so far then return to the start and walk along it filling in the rest of the bridge. That's much safer.

Now that the bug with arrows going through walls has been fixed it is a lot easier in the start. You used to have to make treehouses but as well as the arrow issue the cannibals with axes don't break down walls as easy now.

On the first map I stay long enough to build a good supply of coconuts and mangos. You can last at night outside the first few but you are better off making a shelter right away. Gather coconuts and mangos and wood till about 14:00. Then enter the area thst has a touch outside. You can take the torch or almost anything you build to your inventory by attacking it barehanded. (you need a pickaxe for cobblestone etc.)

Anyway take the torch go inside the cave and make a craft table. Craft some wooden pickaxes(at most a couple then switch to stone) and get to digging stone. When you have a few stone block off the way you came inside the cave so no cannibals can get in at night. Then using the large torch you took from outside you can craft a furnace which is a great lightsource as well. If you have enough wood make a chest as you will need it with no backpack. Keep digging toward the center or down till 5 am.

As far as I know there is only coal, no ore on the first island. At 5 open your stone blockade and having crafted a stone sword or two and an axe if you have room go hunting boars with at least two inventory spots free. Make the small packpack and gather more leather for armor, leaves for maps, wood for more pickaxes and always make sure to have at least 10 coconuts and mangos before you go underground at night.

Moving forward replace the outside stone of your cave with cobble stone. Then have a spot where if you take out one stone you can kill cannibals but they can't get in.

After you level up a bit, have full leather armor, local & world maps, large backpack, a good supply of cobblestone & stone, wood and stone tools(mostly pickaxes) swim east to the next island. Just hold the jump button and you will swim at the surface. Don't head into shark infested waters when swimming for obvious reasons.

If you make it that far you should be able to figure the rest out easy.

SetupDisk commented on PlatinumGames Explains Shift to Contract Work ...:

The thing thst bugs me about platinum games is even though almost all of their games rate extremely well they struggle to sell well on any system. Hopefully the strange people who only play major ips wil be impressed and try to find out about platinum and play their original games.

SetupDisk commented on Nintendo Download: 28th January (North America):

Level 22 looks like the best game this week but it only takes about 3 hours to beat, longer if you want all the collectibles.

The Dinner games seems like a good concept but unless the difficultly increased from the PC release it looks way too easy.

SetupDisk commented on Random: Someone At Walmart Took Shovel Knight'...:

@ikki5
I just went the american site and did a general search for shovel. I got the same page without the parts cropped out from this image. Some DB did that, posted on a forum and nobody bothered to check.

Yes as some pointed out the people at walmart can't be too bright because of an experience they had but I guess that means everyone who posted in this topic is a ******* idiot going by that "logic"besides you that saw the obvious.

This actually made my day. What a bunch of tools posting comments like that.

SetupDisk commented on UK Pre-Orders Open for Pokkén Tournament Pro ...:

To answer the question lol no, I am not tempted but having heard that is how the arcade games is controllered it makes sense. They have been fighting pads in the past that would work with other games but were horrible to control other games with. Some cost almost as much as a console to play with maybe 10 games(really stretching) at the most.

I would never buy it but it is not as absurd as when I first heard about it when I didn't know that was the arcade control.

@Damo
Do you know if it's possible to do the whole game solo like Monster Hunter in which the offline AND online can be be done solo?

Is it a similar setup of basically a story mode that is offline and a multiplayer mode for online or is it all lumped together?

@MailOrderNinja
I'm not sure, the price for the game in Canada is $99.99 with the Amiibo so I can't see it being that cheap.

Nintendo is the only one that jacked up the prices when the Canadian dollar started going down. They never lowered them when the Canadian dollar was higher so it seems like extra gutting.

Still going to get it though but that's a lot of money for one game. You could say that a lot of games cost well over a hundred bucks with the DLC which is true but I generally don't feel the need to get those games right away and wait till they are on sale.

Usually only Nintendo games that bomb go on sale. They did have some kind of thing with Gamecube and Wii that was a reprint of best selling games for cheap but I haven't seen it for Wii U yet.

It just seems odd that Wind Waker came out at a reduced price they couldn't sell this at a standard price with the Amiibo included. That would work out to what they charge for amiibo anyway.

I am still amazed at how much better this looks than the reveal video shown here though. That was muddy as hell.

SetupDisk commented on Review: Mario Kart 64 (Wii U eShop / N64):

Mario Kart is one of those series where after playing the latest 3 the other ones just don't hold up. My favorite tracks from it are in other games I have as well. I might get it when I have more funds for some battle mode highjinks but there are other N64 games I would much rather have on there.

SetupDisk commented on Video: Nintendo Minute Takes an Extended Look ...:

That looks way better than previous footage I have seen but Nintendo are still doing a scumbag move by charging full price for this. For full price they should of remade it with the specs of the pre wii u launch Zelda demo.

Probably going to waste a hundred bucks on this anyway.

SetupDisk commented on 17 Games Get North American eShop Discounts in...:

@Ralek85
Some deals look good so I will pick up a PSN card. The worst thing with Sony sales are some games look like a good price but if you pay about 5 more bucks you get all the DLC in a bundle or on a disc at retail. If you don't notice the bundle it's not available after you download the game anymore and the DLC for some old games still comes out to 40 bucks or more sometimes. I never should have got Bioshock 3 when it was on sale. It's cheaper to go out and get the Disc with DLC than download it from PSN.

That's something I hoped they would fix by now. Same as if I downloaded a game when it was new, never got a chance to play it and the cheap version with all the DLC is on the store but they won't let you download it when it is again cheaper than getting the DLC.

I might get DA inquisitions but I heard it runs really bad on PS3.

SetupDisk commented on Metroid: Zero Mission Looks Set for a 14th Jan...:

I have the cart and my GBA SP still but I always played Metroid on my gameboy advance player and I don't have my gamecube hooked up right now. I can't Metrod on a small screen.

In other words i will get this but not right away as I have played this game quite a few times.

SetupDisk commented on Video: Watch as New Super Mario Bros. Wii Gets...:

They obviously are different games but it is a direct sequel which isn't that common in Mario Games.

There was the lost levels on Nes, Galaxy 1 and 2, the 2 games with 3D in the title(3DS and Wii U) maybe but I think there was plenty of difference between them and then four NSMB games.

I did like like the Wii U one the best though I haven't finished the DLC.
