No Man’s Sky is either going to be amazing or rubbish, no middle ground. I’m hoping for the former (seriously: “solo MMO”. space. exploration. simulator. OMG), but I admit I’ve had a non-zero number of “that can’t be real” conversations about the E3 demo. So we’ll see.

Related: the fact this game was apparently made by a grand total of four people (!) makes me feel a little better about including a very similar scenario in Liesmith and its sequel…
