That hurt

No Man’s Sky is a space exploration game. You discover new planets, collect resources, identify wildlife, build bases and continually upgrade your equipment so you can do more of those things.

I’m enjoying it. It’s a good gin and tonic game – lazily floating round the galaxy mining asteroids with the occasional frisson of intergalactic adventure.

And then I read a review that said it’s basically an inventory management game and it broke my heart.

Because that’s exactly what it is. You need all kinds of different materials to make things and there isn’t enough room to keep them in any one base, ship or exosuit. So you ferry junk around until you have the chromatic metal and ferrite dust where you need them when you need them.

Sigh. I’ll never be a swashbuckler.
