Radiated Wasteland (Browser based Post-Apocalyptic MMORPG) in Open Beta Now

Browser game studio Pixel Pandemic has opened up its free beta of Radiated Wasteland.Radiated Wasteland is a post-apocalyptic, free-to-play browser based MMORPG.

The ambition of the development team has been to adapt classic gameplay features from the great RPGs of the past two decades to the browser format.

“We feel that there are way too few challenging browser based RPGs for gamers like us who
are or at least used to be hardcore gamers. In my opinion the market is flooded by cute farm
animals and boring linear gameplay. We wanted to develop a complex MMORPG with a
complex skill and character customization system. We also wanted a game that featured
tactical turn based combat gameplay and exploration of a huge map with multiple NPCs, story
driven missions and other things to engage in. We feel that we have achieved that with
Radiated Wasteland and hope to develop things from the open beta with a focus on what the
game community wants like we have been doing to great extend with our 1st game”, says CEO Thomas Jacobsen

Dirt Cheap Preps: LED Clip-On Light

Hello everyone. Been awhile since I posted any new prep related vids or blog posts. Here's the latest one.

These LED clip-on lights are less than a couple of bucks a piece. I have several of them in stock. It's small enough to keep in your glove compartment or carry around with you but it's also good to have in stock since it doesn't take up too much space.

As an urban newbie prepper, I always talk about space being very limited. Each addition really has to be multifunctional or doesn't take up too much space.

For such a small little device, this LED clip-on light is not only versatile but also very bright. Usually when you buy clip-on things, the clip part fails because it doesn't have much of a grip.

These lights however are pretty secure once you clip them on to the brim of your hat or your shirt/jacket. The battery for it is just your standard watch batteries. Another positive with this particular item is that it pivots around so it is adjustable which give you a bit more flexibility.

I've used this light as a booklight as well. Although my prepper library is mostly digital, we do have a large collection of print books so on occasion this clips on nicely on a book cover.

It just goes to show you don't have to spend a whole lot of money to have some emergency temp lighting. Always good to diversify what you have.

A lot of my viewers in YouTube are budget conscious (as they should be) so I try to review things that they can easily pick up. Good rule to have for newbie preppers: keep things simple and budget friendly.

Site updates:
The tech editions of my YouTube channel have been a nice change of pace but I do have a lot of new articles/vids/reviews I'd like to put up. I have several prep vids already on standby. I actually have more equipment to review, specifically knives. There's also book reviews forthcoming.

As for the site itself: Some additional changes I was planning on implementing is put on hold for now for lack of time.

The site has reached over 50,000 views. Many thanks for all the support!
