Your First 30 Minutes in No Man’s Sky (PS4)

As an avid sci-fi nerd and space enthusiast, it’s easy to see a game like No Man’s Sky and get tremendously excited. There aren’t too many games out there that allow free exploration of the cosmos – well, not recently, since I feel as though the 80’s and 90’s had many DOS games that filled the void rather well.

Even trickier to explain will be how the fully grown man managed not only to trip and fall face-first into the bowl, but —” after his watery and unhygienic death —€” how he was also able to extract his own head from his  ...
