TOPIC: SOMEWHERE OVER THE RAINBOW - With Ubisoft announcing that Rainbow 6: Patriots is now being remade, team EBC evaluates the impact on the Rainbow 6 franchise while discussing the dilemma facing innovation with the FPS genre.
No Man's Sky looks totally ace. It makes me remember the old ZX Spectrum game Elite. I used to love that back in the day. Traveling free around the universe, getting into random space battles and docking with unknown space stations. Great times and it mattered not a jot that the whole thing was rendered in sub 8 bit graphics. Your imagination and passion filled in the gaps for you. If No Man's Sky can achieve the same level of immersion and exploration that Elite did all those many moons ago, then it could be a pretty profound experience. Oh... And get DK on VGX duty stat. Don't deprive the world of THAT hair.
