Show notes:00:04 No Man’s Sky
I just heard about the upcoming multi-player functionality in No Man’s Sky, and wondered if that would be enough to get you back into the game?
06:37 Destiny 2
If you’re curious, here is Paul’s recreation of the Sunshot from Destiny 2. Yes, that does indeed look quite fiddly.

24:02 Mailbag: Critics and TB
Dear Forceimparters on platonic solids,
Since the last time you talked about TotalBiscuit and given the recent news I felt compelled to ask questions in regards to critiquing games.
TB’s style was quite nitpicky and technical, which is now a quite underrepresented niche on YT. What are you looking for in a critique/discussion?
Story analysis, technical information, or game mechanics breakdown?
I personally like nitpicky discussion mostly in regards to game mechanics. Technical aspects are of interest to me if they interfere with other aspects of the game.
Keep up the good work and the nitpicking.
Kindest regards your loyal reader and listener,
Gresman (probably mispronounced) :)
31:01 Rage 2
Hey Diecast. Just was hoping you would share your brief thoughts on the announcement of Rage 2. What do you think of the direction they are taking? How do you feel about them even using the Rage brand given that the first game had a mediocre reception and that this one is being developed by a different studio?

The Game That Ruined Me
Be careful what you learn with your muscle-memory, because it will be very hard to un-learn it.
What is this silly word, why did some people get so irritated by it, and why did it fall out of use?
Deus Ex and The Treachery of Labels
Deus Ex Mankind Divided was a clumsy, tone-deaf allegory that thought it was clever, and it managed to annoy people of all political stripes.
Was it a Hack?
A big chunk of the internet went down in October of 2016. What happened? Was it a hack?
The Middle Ages
Would you have survived in the middle ages?
