Is there a recent update to this?  I somehow always manage to forget I own this game for the Index.

It's surprisingly fun, and pretty. And being on XGP, nearly free. I've been playing the hell out of it.

It's been a relaxing balm lately. Like, I keep landing on planets and going wow this is the same shit I've seen only not, it's really pretty or interesting. I landed on a planet a week ago and immediately made a base because it was a bunch of fauna designs I had never seen before with 50 plus planets under my belt, and they felt coherent/thematic. I found a quiet planet with no weather and the Sentinels are pretty chill and it has resources and ! it's got these towering stone platforms overlooking beautiful lakes. I made a base there right away. I found a ridiculously hard planet with Everest-high mountains falling into lake-filled valleys that had gigantic glowing flora and a fantastic color palette and made exquisite pictures at dawn halfway up a mountain.

I mean, it's really easy to play 15 minutes or four hours. And there's always relevant shit to do.

I just got into this one. I'll probably enjoy the hell out of it, but I have to say that the decision to have other spaceships constantly flying by at the starter planet, plus the revelation that a space station is just minutes away, changes the tone of the intro from "desperate survival" to "weekend camp out."

I guess I should go to that station and see if they have a hospital so I can get this amnesia checked out, then get back to my day job of being a space accountant or whatever...

I hear the latest update gives us actual taming and breeding of beasts. My dream of sandworm riding is one step closer.

You call it an accident. I call it justice.

Jesus Christ am I going to have to re-download the game again? I learned to just keep Elite:Dangerous on my PS4, guess I am going to have to do the same for this.

I timed that perfectly, in that I started playing one day and then had a major update the next (my slow satellite connection took hours). And just today they did a patch of the patch that was larger than the original update...

 Ohhhhh, I see.

But that said, the pet thing is pretty fun so far. So is the entire game really, even if it just works out to me noodling around building things and looking at scenery.

"Noodling around building things and looking at scenery" made Minecraft a perfect waste of time.

Sometimes irony is pretty ironic.
