    No Man's Sky is also fun but you need to set your own goals

    Also FIFA 20 is reduced from £60 to £4. Is this a SCAM?

    Oh probably :D They tend to reduce the previous year's version when a new one comes out (FIFA 21 is probably just about to launch) but that's quite the reduction!

    In the past I'd say just buy it, but I'm not a big sports game person and so I don't know how whether there'd be stuff like microtransactions to actually get everything.

    I'm pretty sure @Tisch 's parents bought him an extension pack to a game he didn't have a few years back, not understanding how it worked :D thanks mum!

    It was for my sister's husband and everyone turned to ME to explain. I tried to tell them I hadn't played with a console since the internet came along... :D

    It says there are also in-app purchases but seeing as I'm far from a football/FIFA aficionado I'm sure I can ignore them easily.

    Just £60 to £4.19 is RIDICULOUS!

    My mind went towards DOS games recently, I had some sort of Star Trek game, but no memories of what it was. I remember planet scans (which is the reason I know M-Class planets are habitable to earthlings), and you could phaser things but I think that was turn based

    Is it actually? I got almost caught up with the hype but saw all the terrible reviews. And you can find a million second hand copies everywhere for dirt cheap.

    I started again a few days ago. it is definitely not the same game as four years ago, they have worked really hard to distance themselves from the fiasco the game was at launch. tons of (free!) upgrades and expansions

    then a new (free!) expansion came out yesterday. I haven't played yet but it looks very promising. No Man's Sky 3.0



    I've seen some snaps over on reddit. the planets look so much more alive now!

    there is a line of missions that's meant to show you the ropes but it is very much a chill exploration/building game, so you need to keep yourself occupied
