THE RACE IS ON! THERE ARE AN INFINITE NUMBER OF PLANETS TO CLAIM AND MARK AS YOUR OWN! TO THE BRAVEST, TO THE MOST DARING GO THE SPOILS! THERE ARE ALSO A NOT QUITE AS BIG NUMBER OF CLICKS FOR NO MAN’S SKY BASED CONTENT OUT THERE! TO THE MOST ARTICULATE, THE MOST INFORMATIVE AND THE MOST ON TOP OF THEIR “TAKE GENERATION SCHEDULE” GO THE SPOILS. I AM NOT THOSE PEOPLE
Yes, I know there aren’t an infinite number of planets, there’s only whatever the number of planets there is, I’m trying to make the most of the post-release pre-popular consensus take window, I’ve no time to research. And yeah, not quite as big as infinity is probably a really dumb sentence don’t @ me.
Balls, forget I said that, @ me, @ me right now, all the time about anything.
So yes, No Mam’s Sky is out. Sort of. It’s properly out on PS4, digital and retail, but not PC. Point is, a lot more people have played it then had played it this time yesterday when I made that post about….. oh who remembers. Have I played it? No of course not, I’ve been to busy trying to anticipate where the web’s, what am i eighty?, where the internet’s next surplus of attention and interest will appear.
I thought about getting it. I stood in a carpark, not facing but within last minute sprinting distance to the local game shop, I was going to buy a digital download card obv I’m not mad, thinking about it. On the one hand, I want to believe the hype, get into it you know. I mean yeah, the thing I’m most stoked about has only been promised in, I’m not mad I’m telling you, has only been promised in updates — it’s a bigger ship that I could put my ship in, in case you’re wondering, for some reason, when a game lets me walk around a object that’s moving around on its own while I’m you know moving around it is the point at which I think I’ll be blown away, have the, “those magnificent bastards have done it” moment. Where was I? Yeah, the thinking. I was thinking about getting it, but then I thought, there’s an episode of star trek on the, balls should’ve italicised that, that’s been on the sky plus for a week with only 5 mins left, that’s how busy I’ve been. Can’t even explore my own telly queue, when will I get time to explore the cosmos.
Sorry, that was a total tangent.
Back on topic moustaches.
So yeah, there’s been some blowback, and blowback to the blowback. Jim Sterling didn’t like it I think, maybe someone could post a synopsis of his review in the comments, I haven’t the time. Or just, post anything. At all. A lot of people are pissed at this, two lads couldn’t see each other even though they were on the same planet. Is it just a mineral farming game? That’s the big question, coming up on the word count now, I can do this.
I watched a stream and thought it looked kind of cool, relaxing in a way, even though the guy in quesion was half dying of radiation all the time, which was a bit stressful. Geez, 600 words, no six hundred words is tough to get to. In spite of what I just said re, I mean about, radiation, it does seem quite chill, with some mysteries and some kind of stories.
And animals you can name humungous dongus. That’s a good closing line there.
Seriously, please do @ me.
