  1. Are those C64 clips above on original hardware? The frame rate seems insanely high! I never played a C64 back in the day, but I know scrolling shooters were usually best on that format.
  2. Awww, it's making me remember my first experience fondly. Try the London Heist if you haven't already. The bit in the car is so much fun, leaning out of the door and shooting backwards especially. Oh, and smoking the cigar.
  3. On the left of the station as you fly in, near the Suit customiser.
  4. Awesome screens, awesome new ship @robdood Regarding the pods, you get one of those at every Space Station you visit. So once you start system hopping you may find it less hassle than searching for and repairing Drop Pods on planet surfaces. BTW, the underwater biomes were massively overhauled in the Abyss update, so yes - they are better than you remember. It's one of many areas of the game that I really want to get into, if I ever get a single second of my life spare! https://www.nomanssky.com/abyss-update/
  5. Obviously this is all deeply fake, and the "Villain Edit" will be playing its part, but my God I detest Marco in this. Grasping, greedy, pumped up, Toxic cunt.
  6. "Have you washed your sheets Brian?" "Yes" "And your penis?"
  7. Oh, I don't. But it did make me think maybe I should listen to some of them. My 6 btw were: Both Vampire Weekends Both St Vincents Arctic Monkeys Interpol
  8. I have heard 6 albums out of that list. I'm so out of touch.
  9. I used to bulk prep food years ago, in foil containers, but it would just be a handful of extra portions of shepherd's pie or whatever I was cooking anyway. This thread is not only inspirational in reminding me how convenient it is to have food ready to re-heat, it's also a great collection of recipes in their own right - so thank you!
  10. I've bought a load of Prep Boxes and then next weekend I'm going to finally do what I've been meaning to and cook a load of these amazing meals @Gotters
  11. Loving it! It's not that much of a departure really - Mary on a Cross sounds like a 60's spin on Dance Macabre - but it's catchy as hell and I love the intrumentation, the keyboards etc.
  12. I'm never going to get the time to half the stuff that people are now doing in the game, but this one really cements just how far the game has come:
  13. Yeah, that was in the last update, but I never came across a system like that. There are systems with deserted Space Stations too.
  14. Not my work, but the Smokestak Pastrami at Meatopia yesterday was unreal:
  15. Oh man, I finally got the two Dukes of Stratosphear albums (they're available as one compilation called Chips from the Chocolate Fireball), and they are wonderful. For those who don't know, this was XTC "In disguise" as a Psychedelic 60's pastiche band. And the pastiche is absolutely laser precise, but crucially the songs are also really, really good, as you might expect from XTC. So for anyone who loves Beatles, Beach Boys, early Pink Floyd etc, this is like listening to a band from 1967 that you'd previously never heard of, but which is the best band from 1967 ever! Produced by John Leckie to boot! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Dukes_of_Stratosphear
  16. At least you get a warning about Sentinel levels from orbit when you scan a planet now. I'm still early doors with my current Save. Playing on Normal, and just casually pootling about, not worrying about making money or progressing. Found a system which had two planets with Ancient Bones. All of a sudden I'm like, MUST MAKE CREDITS!
  17. On the plus side, that looks awesome! You rarely see all black ships like that.
  18. Was very pleased to discover that you now get a big old rotatable model of each creature in the Discoveries menu. However, it's a little buggy. You can't rotate them with the right stick until you tab over to the flora with the d-pad, then tab back. Or at least, that makes it work for me. And you can't rotate them up and down, only left and right. But it's a lot better. With the addition of locale hints for creatures you haven't found yet (Caves, underwater etc) I may actually start trying to 100% planets again. Now I await (probably forever) an actual update to the creatures generally. I think they might be the only thing that's remained unchanged since launch, and I'd like to see them radically overhauled in terms of size, detail, and variety.
  19. Not had much of a chance to play this yet, but as a Day -1 player of the game I have to say that some of the quality of life improvements are most welcome. The scanning in particular is much better, with a quick press of L1 revealing previously unscanned rocks, plants etc in purple, and R1 properly locking on to birds now. That used to drive me insane. The NPCs are so much better now as well, actually seeing them walk about, talking to the ship owners on foot etc doesn't sound like much, but it does give the game a greater sense of being populated.
  20. Fuckin' n00bs. I remember when you couldn't even tell what sort of planet it was until you landed. never mind what resources you'd find.
  21. I think that approach to the game, can probably still be taken, but you'd have to go out of your way to do that. Turning off the Online stuff etc. The bugs will get (indeed, are getting) ironed out.
  22. It's a bit of a double edged sword that the game now has so, so much to do. When it launched (as you will see from my posts at the time), the game was much more bare bones, and as a result it had much more of a "Make your own fun" vibe to it. And I loved that. But now there is almost literally an infinite To Do list, and I'm never going to get to it all. If you're the sort of person who very much needs to progress in a game, then I can see how this would feel like a slog. But most of my playtime in NMS has been chilling. Just walking about on planets looking for nice views, or exploring underwater caves, or whatever. That's the way I like to play the game, and I slightly resent/regret that the updates have moved the focus away from this, and towards giving the player more tasks to complete. I really just want more creature and biome diversity. Oh, and rain on the cockpit glass please, as per this recent Reddit post:
  23. Ok, tried VR on PS4 and it’s a mixed bag so far: The good: Amazing sense of scale Cockpit interior is wonderful Using the multitool is a joy just pointing with the Move controller The bad: It’s soooo blurry Walking/Turning controls are terrible Flight controls are even worse Maybe I’m missing something, but there doesn’t seem to be any way to turn smoothly with the Move controllers. It just does very jerky movements left or right, even with just the briefest press on the buttons. Also, I have a headache and feel sick, but that’s just VR. I think its a fascinating experiment but it’s not the chilled experience I look for in NMS so I think it’ll be normal view for me.
  24. I haven’t tried VR yet, but even in normal view the improvements to the ship cockpits are awesome! Not just the increased detail, but being able to look around you much more than you could before. I summoned the new Anomaly and was quite blown away by the scale. It’s a dramatically different place.
