No Man’s Sky NEXT

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on July 31, 2018 by getbent57

Have been enjoying the hell out of No Man’s Sky now it has the NEXT update.  You know a game is good when you are not playing and are thinking about.  Have put about 25hours in so far (Mind you I was off the week the update was out).  Doesn’t feel like it.  It is one of the games time just goes by.  That is because you can go at your own pace.  There is a path to follow.  You don’t have too.  The exploring and craft have improved so much.  It’s fun to do.  Have played a bit of multiplayer.  My goal is to upgrade my suit so I can carry more things.  In turn so I can sell more stuff for more money.  My friends goal is to get lots of money now to buy a better ship.  So he is doing a lot of mining and selling.  I highly recommend getting a copy of this game.  If you own a PS4 am sure you can find copies pretty cheap now.

As I typed this up (July 28, 2018) there is a new patch out the game, Version 1.51.  You can read what it does > here.

Springfield Confidential

Springfield_Confidential_BookI am a fan of The Simpsons.  Have just found out about a new book on the show.  It is called Springfield Confidential: Jokes, Secrets, and Outright Lines from a Lifetime Writing for The Simpsons.  There is a good portion of the book you can sample.  Read them and like it.  So I guess I will have to add one more book to the list.  Have read one other Simpsons book.  That was was more about the cartoon family.  This one is written about the people who made the show.  As I am typing this (July 26, 2018) Amazon.ca is asking $23.43 which is a hardcover.

SHAZAM!Yes, talking about another trailer shown at this years (2018) San Diego Comic-Con.  This time it is for the DC movie SHAZAM!.  Was a bit surprised that they made this movie since the character, Shazam or his other name Captain Marvel, is not was well known by the general public.  Captain Marvel is who a superhero but only when the kid Billy Batson says the word Shazam.  You can see the trailer > here or below.  I like how they are keeping the story (from what we see) light hearted.  Think it will be a fun movie to watch.  It is set to be out April 5, 2019.

A few posts talked about the season nine trailer for The Walking Dead.  Which looks awesome.  In the mean time we have the second half of Fear The Walking Dead to look forward to.  All so at the The San Diego Comic-Con they put a trailer ( > here or below) for the second half which starts up August 12, 2018.  The first half was amazing.  It takes the show in a whole new direction.  It is all most like a bran new show.  Think this half will be just as good.  Looks like a major storm takes place and we get to meet some not characters.  Can’t wait to see what happens next.

No Man’s Sky NEXT Hands On

I bought a copy of No Man’s Sky when it came out back in August 2016.  Really enjoyed the time played.  That being said have not touched it since November of that year.  Even when they put of the many updates.  Now that the NEXT update was out (July 24, 2018) decided to jump back in.  At first was going to just start from my original save.  But with all this new things add thinking it would be hard to figure everything out.  So started a new save file.

Going to say the game is so much better now.  Have had a blast playing so far.  They have add so much.  What I has seen so far that helps is there is a tutorial.  You start off with very little and not too far from your ship.  It gives you small quest to get you up and flying around.  Makes the game far less confusing. Going to keep playing.  It helps a friend has bought a copy so we can try out the multiplayer.  Which works great.  You stick together or go off and do your own thing.

Cher – Believe

Cher_BelieveTime again for throwback Thursday.  The song this week is Believe by Cher.  Not sure why I haven’t picked this one before now.  It is a great song that gets stuck in your head.  I can remember having a “copy” of a bunch of remix version on a tape.  They were all pretty good.  This off her 1998 album that shares the same name, Believe.  You can give it a listen > here or below.

The San Diego Comic-Con was this past weekend (July 19 to 22, 2018).  Every year they had lots of great news and info about upcoming TV and movies.  Every year AMC shows off a trailer for that years season of The Walking Dead.  This year is no different.  Season nine will start October 7, 2018.  If you every stopped by this blog you will now am a big fan of the show and the comic book.  You can see the trailer > here or below.  There is other big news as well.  There have been rumours for a while now that the lead actor Andrew Lincoln who plays Rick Grimes will be leaving the show.  Well that turned out to be true.  It sucks then someone leaves a show.  I just wish they were able to keep it a secret until the episode it happens in is over.  Now that every one knows he is gone there will be no real shock when he is gone.
