    No Man's Sky - VR Mode Announced

    Any of you experts got any tips for a newbie? Currently I'm slightly grumpy about how much of a pain in the arse interstellar travel is, what with the ridiculously involved process of creating Warp Cells.

    Somebody tell me that you eventually get a multitool that makes mining iron a speedy process please!

    To fix the first one was 60k, the second is 130k... I hope it doesn't double each time or I'll be spending more money than there is in the universe after about ten slots!

    You throw money at them.

    Is it normal for the first crashed ship I find to be worth 43 million units and have 22 extra slots...?

    He's not a bot, he's this chap: https://twitter.com/demon244 ...which might be a bot, apparently he's liked 49,000 tweets! I think it was a human at some point though.

    Hi Demon! What does mean?

    I started again on Normal. My ship is at my starting position, rather than ten minutes walk away; the air isn't trying to kill me; I get twice as many resources, the scanner recharges more often, and I don't have to run in screaming terror from any aggressive animal. Also it's beautiful. All is forgiven and I'll read difficulty descriptions in future.

    Yeah I think in all my complaining about trekking everywhere I missed the 'limited resources' bit of my chosen difficulty level... Bugger.

    At least six bad draws! FIrst two were toxic, next three were freezing, final one was toxic but I managed to at least escape that one... briefly. Starting on a world where the atmosphere doesn't hate you would make a lot of difference. Maybe it was something to do with Permadeath, providing some challenge.

    Yeah, I'll change to Survival - I thought Permadeath might add a bit of meaning to my actions, but the difficulty level is a bit high!

    Hey guys, I bought this yesterday because I reckoned it would be absolutely up my street. Is it just me, or is the beginning just absolutely bloody awful? Are there any non-toxic, non-freezing worlds in this fucking galaxy? I started on Permadeath, so I won't complain about dying repeatedly - but I was kinda expecting the start to not be a complete bastard, and incredibly long-winded to boot. Trek for fucking ages in toxic rain that means you have to take shelter/use very rare recharges repeatedly to pick up some Heridium; then trek for fucking ages to get back to your spaceship; then fuck around trying to get more plutonium to actually be able to take off. Managing to do all that took me about three hours and six deaths. Then I took off, flew into space, and got immediately killed by space pirates. Not best pleased by this! Once I've reduced my annoyance levels I might try again on Survival.

    Bought Hearts of Iron IV. Poland and France held off Germany resulting in a two-front war for two years until Germany collapsed, France turned Communist and turned everybody else Communist in the resulting peace deal. Poland extends all the way from the Soviet Union to France. The Socialist Republic of Germany still exists as a few scraps of land. Two seconds after Germany capitulated, the Soviet Union declared on Poland for the states of Eastern Poland, wiped the floor with them and made peace. A month after that, the Socialist Republic of Germany finished the focus that gives them Western Poland... so now Poland is Germany and the completely destroyed Germany gets given half of Poland for free for no reason. None of this makes any goddamn sense.

    Feels like if the AI can't prosecute a war, that's a fundamental flaw in a WW2 simulator. I'd definitely get the base game (£17 on CDKeys!) but I object to having to shell out for the DLCs - God knows how much I've spent on EUIV buying DLCs by now... I do love all the alt-history Hitler-getting-assassinated etc possibilities though, too tempting. Edit: I have spent £125.15 on EUIV. What the everliving fuck!

    Which I really want to buy, but don't feel like I can justify spending at least £40 on the game and the DLC - especially as it has mixed reviews.
