No Man's Sky: Some Thoughts

No Man's Sky is out, and the reviews have been - well, appropriate, for the most part. This was a hugely hyped, hugely ambitious game that just fell short. It gets more annoying when you realize just how close to the mark it was and how just a bit more polish could have made the game just flat-out better.

So with that in mind, here are some of the ways I felt the game fell short:

Review: The Wonderful End of the World

System: Windows
Score: 3/5 3 (OK)

In The Wonderful End of the World, you play as a nameless red-haired goddess who wants to save the world. You do this by rolling things up into a giant Clump of Souls and - wait, I think I've got this story confused with another game.

Actually she does this using a "marionette" which "absorbs" items into its body as it runs around the level. If you caught the earlier reference, then yes, this game is a Katamari Damacy clone. And there's nothing wrong with that.

Review: Portal

System: Windows
Score: 4/5 4 (Good)

Portal is simply a lot of fun. Really, what more needs to be said?

Well, that it's amazingly short. The main game takes about two hours to complete. Afterwards there are additional achievements that can be completed, but they are basically sections of the main game redone to be harder.
