Science Fiction Round 63: No Man’s Sky

2016/08/27 Leave a comment

Unlike many of the other reviewers of No Man’s Sky, I wasn’t terribly disappointed.

I was basically expecting a lovely sandbox not unlike ARK: Survival Evolved mixed up with the Spore space stage, both of which I enjoyed. ¬†So I’m pretty happy with the results… likely due to not having overly high expectations.

But, of course, there are some things that could be improved…

This isn't too bad a representation of the game, although I haven't seen the free-floating atlas so much yet.

Science Fiction Round 62: Classic Star Trek

2016/08/06 Leave a comment

I saw Star Trek: Beyond last weekend, and it was basically perfect.

Well, you know, for a Star Trek movie.

I was worried after the first trailer — it looked like Star Trek: Fast and Furious at that stage, and I had no interest in seeing that. ¬†Fortunately, that’s not what’s actually in the movie for the most part.

I have issues with each of the other two reboot films — I’ve mentally re-written half the plot of Into Darkness to make it better — but all I’ve really got for this one is nit-picking and the usual Star Trek physics fail.

Naturally, there will be spoilers.

It's the Enterprise, going through something that's way too dense to be a real nebula, but hey, it's Star Trek.
