So I played No Man’s Sky yesterday for about 6 consecutive hours. Well if you don’t include the emergency run and grab the 120 lb dog that was about to eat the neighbors 10 pound dog. Sorry neighbor!

A friend (@Zombwie) asked me today what I would consider my role to be in NMS. It is an interesting question. In a game that is literally endless, what is my purpose in it? The game itself provides you with a bit of guidance in the beginning but after about an hour you really start to develop a personality in the game. I hadn’t truly thought about it until being asked the question. Then I reflected on the 8 or so hours I have dedicated so far.

Ships-1

I realized that I love ships, I have had 4 in the short time that I have been playing. Not just to upgrade the number of slots available for storage (which is another issue all together) but for the look as well. I did find my unicorn last night, we are calling it the Fly Tighter.

I will be staying on the planet I am on until I find it again. After farming the shit out of Gold and Emeril I now have enough Units to purchase it. After that I will resume my quest to learn the language of the first star system that I was in.

Ships-3

I didn’t realize it until the question was asked, but I was a fair bit ahead of the other people who I know playing the game when it came to the language department. I had managed to learn over 50 words in two languages and wanted more! Personally not the thing that I thought I would be most attracted to.

I had thought, before ever touching the game, that I would racing from planet to planet naming everything and shooting stuff like crazy. I find that I have done exactly the opposite. I hang about for hours searching for the next Language Stone, Monolith or Ruin to teach me the next word. Nothing is more frustrating than having a conversation with an alien life form and not being able to understand any of it. I mean hell Captain Kirk where is my universal translator.

I imagine that over the life of the game my role will evolve into something else, but at this point I called myself a scholar. Thriving on finding the next word, waiting for the day when a full conversation with the alien life forms is available to me.

Stay tuned for more articles as I dive deeper into NMS. I will be releasing some videos in the near future with some of the stuff that I learned along the way!
