Everything's out of control.

*cough* w h a t?

@  Donocropolis : (19 January 2021 - 09:48 AM)

Cause your friends don't dance, and if they don't dance they ain't no friends of mine

@  TheMightyMol... : (19 January 2021 - 08:52 AM)

You could leave your friends behind.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (18 January 2021 - 09:43 PM)

You could if you really wanted to.

@  -LittleAutob... : (18 January 2021 - 01:35 PM)

......... all wounds heal through God. *walks off*

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 January 2021 - 01:01 PM)

Let me know when the WEAPONs wake up.

@  tigerhawk : (18 January 2021 - 05:18 AM)

Or is the wound the Earth healing.

@  unluckiness : (18 January 2021 - 03:32 AM)

Healing is just destroying the wound

@  PlutoniumBoss : (17 January 2021 - 06:08 PM)

But eventually destroys everything.

@  tigerhawk : (17 January 2021 - 05:03 PM)

Heals many wounds

@  PlutoniumBoss : (17 January 2021 - 02:03 PM)

Time.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2021 - 07:53 AM)

I dunno, maybe. I'm not clairvoyant either...

@  Nevermore : (17 January 2021 - 04:30 AM)

Covid?

@  wonko the sane? : (16 January 2021 - 09:50 PM)

At this point, if I'm going to die then it won't be the wait what killed me. It didn't help any, mind you, but it's not what got me.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (16 January 2021 - 09:37 PM)

Technically we are all literally dying to play with our next figure.

@  wonko the sane? : (16 January 2021 - 05:36 PM)

I am figuratively dying to play with that cheetor.

@  wonko the sane? : (16 January 2021 - 04:39 PM)

Still waiting for my box from BBTS to arrive.

@  tigerhawk : (16 January 2021 - 04:29 PM)

Kingdoms is fantabulous and it's only the first wave.

@  tigerhawk : (12 January 2021 - 12:10 PM)

My Super Collection Megatron always had two left legs and I just discovered my Thrilling 30 Crosscut has two right hips.

@  Nevermore : (11 January 2021 - 07:56 PM)

Fortunately, it's only Netflix Hound, so not really much of a loss here.

@  Nevermore : (11 January 2021 - 07:55 PM)

So it's been a while since I've had a misassembled Transformers toy.

@  Echowarrior : (11 January 2021 - 10:02 AM)

More Micromasters would be welcome.

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 January 2021 - 06:15 AM)

Instructions unclear, have more sports cars.

@  tigerhawk : (11 January 2021 - 01:57 AM)

Or they could make the other Micromasters of the teams they half assed.

@  ▲ndrusi : (10 January 2021 - 11:20 PM)

There should be a box set of eight Stakeouts.

@  Bass X0 : (10 January 2021 - 08:27 PM)

There should be a box-set of Thrust, Dirge and Ramjet. But I'm not expecting it.

@  Nevermore : (10 January 2021 - 07:51 PM)

I hope there are re-releases this year!

@  tigerhawk : (10 January 2021 - 03:59 PM)

I hope there's rereleases of Earthrise Ramjet, Dirge and Ratchet next year.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 January 2021 - 07:51 AM)

Oh no, he was loved. I'd argue he could have had a better life physically, but he was loved. Deeply.

@  Telly : (08 January 2021 - 01:42 AM)

as long s/he gave love and was loved, it was a good life

@  Echowarrior : (07 January 2021 - 11:10 PM)

Poor puppy. Poor kid.

@  CORVUS : (07 January 2021 - 03:04 PM)

My condolences :(

@  wonko the sane? : (07 January 2021 - 10:45 AM)

So: My sisters dog just had a heart attack and died... while her 12 year old son was walking him. Welcome to 2021 everybody!

@  Dekafox : (04 January 2021 - 07:24 PM)

Except they're Deceptican'ts usually.

@  Devcon : (04 January 2021 - 05:17 PM)

Depending on which dub: Either Decepticons or Decepticans.

@  Bass X0 : (04 January 2021 - 05:03 PM)

Deception is the French word for disappointment. What does that make the Decepticons in France?

@  Echowarrior : (03 January 2021 - 11:29 PM)

We're just tiny little specks, about the size of Mickey Rooney.

@  TheMightyMol... : (03 January 2021 - 04:33 PM)

It's a great big universe, and we're all really puny.

@  Rycochet : (03 January 2021 - 01:30 PM)

That's orbiting at nineteen miles a second, so it's reckoned, a sun that is the source of all our power

@  Rycochet : (03 January 2021 - 01:30 PM)

Just remember that you're standing on a planet that's evolving and revolving at nine hundred miles an hour.

@  TM2-Megatron : (02 January 2021 - 11:57 PM)

relative to the speed that it's swirling around the centre of the galaxy, its rotation is fairly slow

@  PlutoniumBoss : (02 January 2021 - 09:31 PM)

I'd like to make myself believe that planet Earth turns slowly.

@  -LittleAutob... : (02 January 2021 - 07:21 PM)

The Earth moving gave us 2021.

@  ▲ndrusi : (02 January 2021 - 10:50 AM)

It does that.

@  tigerhawk : (02 January 2021 - 10:11 AM)

I think the Earth is moving.

@  Nevermore : (02 January 2021 - 06:35 AM)

Sunday evenings are awesome. Looking at the clock at 8 PM and thinking "I still have plenty of time before going to bed..."

@  Nevermore : (02 January 2021 - 06:33 AM)

Now I've been working permanent late shift for almost three years. Don't regret it one bit. One of the rare cases where the needs of the company overlap with my own preferences.

@  Nevermore : (02 January 2021 - 06:32 AM)

Before the permanent late shift was introduced three years ago (which I volunteered for as soon as the form became available), I always tended to plan my vacation for early shift weeks. Since the majority of the people in most departments prefer to work early shift and thus tended to plan their vacation for late shift weeks, there were usually enough slots available for me to get my request fulfilled.

Yeah, I really liked the look of the game, and even some of the "revelations" on how much more limited scope of the game doesn't bother me.  But, it doesn't feel like a $60 game, and I can't help but think Sony's promotion of the title and the secrecy didn't end up bolstering hopes to the point the small crew at Hello Games could never hope to provide the game they hyped.

 

Looks a LOT like a Subnautica with space, which looks fun, but again, not $60 worth of fun and I get the feeling a LOT will be disappointed.

A lot of people were expecting more from this game then it was ever going to be. It's not bad, just be aware of what you're paying money for.

I've seen people comment that it might be the new Spore in that respect. Over-hype can kill decent projects.

I encountered my first sentient mechanical being, it offered to show me how to find and traverse black holes to get myself closer to the center of the galaxy.

Holy crap.

Frankly I am APPALLED by this game! How dare it call itself No Man's Sky, when there is in fact a huge chunk of male character models all roaming that very sky RIGHT THIS INSTANT!

 

How can you call it No Man's Sky when men are flying in the sky!

 

I demand all the character models be changed to female to fix this horrible oversight!

i've spent a few hours now in the sky.  

 

I enjoy this game.   It's relaxing in a strange way.  I'm rarely attacked, I can wander strange vistas and see amazing sights and put my own creative stamp on things through naming them.  If you all ever see a half barren chunk of stone named Rockfjord, that was my origin planet.  I've since visited it's moon, which I've named Toxic Ito  for it's massive atmospheric poisons.  

 

I am having some trouble though.  I have a constant "disconnected from online server" error at the bottom of my screen and I've had 3 hard crashes.  I've not really lost any progress, but it is annoying to deal with.   Anyone else having a problem?

Just want clarification - why are people invoking Spore like it's hexed?

Spore was a fun game, I had long thought that was a belief shared by many. It wasn't the all-encompassing greatest thing ever, and if it was we'd have no need for other games. But it  scratched a creative itch. The truth is never in the hype, why would anyone ever be swayed by the hype?

 

And no, no connectivity issues here, Rhinox.

The spore curse is that it effectively promised the sky... and well.. fell short. Very short. At least from what I've seen.

Some blowhard went full Peter Molyneux and you believed it, but you've never played it?

Well that encapsulates the current complaints about this game and that one beautifully, thank you!

 

So, I'm still learning languages as I go, and one species is entirely new to me. My data on them indicates they are very hostile, and I'm in an enclosure with one of them. He motions to my multi-tool, seeming desperate. I can't understand him yet, and I'm thinking he's shaking me down, wants to rob me. But you know, spirit of adventure and all that. I give it to him somewhat reluctantly, he happily hands back to me an improved version of it! So take a chance and do something nice. The sheer size of the galaxy is daunting, and small little deeds and interactions like that shrink it down fast.

Also, is anyone else letting others name their planets filthy things, or is it just me?
