Yesterday SpaceX launched another Falcon 9 and successfully deployed TESS – a new satellite that has the mission to look for a new Earth. Can't wait to get off this crowded, idiot-ridden, filthy rock.

“ A team of Japanese and American engineers is hoping to send a team of drones inspired by bees, aptly named 'Marsbees.' ”

“ The scientists hope that with NASA’s blessing, they’ll be able to create a swarm of robo-bees capable of autonomously exploring our neighboring planet. The Marsbees would still be dependent upon a rover, which would serve as a central command station and a charging port. The rover would also download the information collected by the Marsbees, and would help transmit it back to Earth. ”

Sounds like a good plan.

Mars is the fourth planet from the Sun and the second smallest planet in the Solar System. Named after the Roman god of war, it is often described as the "Red Planet", as the iron oxide prevalent on its surface gives it a reddish appearance. Mars is a ter...

nodley Green It's like that here. One minute it's mild rain like summer then the next torrential like winter, then back again. We never know which coat to wear anymore.

Woodrow Shigeru I agree with you, it's quite rando like that. However, here in my town the temperature has been rising these last couple of days. I'll probably go out without a jacket tomorrow; not even the thin one which I ended up carrying on my arm today.

nodley Green It was 14 degrees here today and it's supposed to hit mid 20s during the week. But then it'll be -6 next weekend. I actually remember last year April 28th it was hailstoning, it was my mother's birthday and she was in Tenerife.

Woodrow Shigeru wrote his opinion about Firewatch

5 days ago

I hate this game so much.

The early story is told in with in-game "this is how you walk", "this is how you interact" mini-segments that alternate with text-adventure-style texts and prompts. Which is okay, I guess. It kinda felt annoying and interruptive the way it was done, if you ask me. I don't really know why.

But more importantly: the first prompts already gave me options that I couldn't sympathize with *at all*. So what do I choose: bad option A or worse option B? AND THEN the game has the nerve to sort-of tell me: "Uuh, you chose to give your girlfriend the small dog instead of the big one. Well, guess what: she's gonna get mugged in the streets and live the rest of her life with an ugly scar on her leg-or-whatever. Nice job, asshole." … or some such shit. Great way to do "choice in games". Idiots.

There were further prompts and texts but at that early point already I was so anti-interested in that story of theirs that I kept skipping the text until the actual gameplay began.

And then what did I get? A visually colorful and beautiful landscape that encourages explor-- but with lots of invisible walls and other gates; an unlikable protagonist that got more and more unlikable over the course of the game when I heard him talk about the shitty life decisions he made during the shit I skipped; and a fairly linear story.

And it's empty. Visually empty. Empty! Basically no animals, no other people, no jack! The story is full of bad guys allegedly but you never really see one. I counted one character model in the entire game. Apart from bad cut-out silhouettes, sound fx and plenty of voice over stuff, the game provides a pretty weak illusion of immersion.

Why bother making an open-world game when it's so restrictive and linear? At least you got to live the life of a firewatch- / forester-adjacent-person. That was kinda interesting to me.

Ugh! Garbage.

Score: 4.0 (Meh!)

Woodrow Shigeru I think Hollywood should start naming every single movie they throw out from now on "Citizen Kane". I mean, it was very popular. That conclusion should be fairly self-evident.
