Well here we are yet again in what could be the last ODeck Friday Open Thread depending on how the Gawker auction goes and given how the entire staff are portraying a ‘fuck it’ attitude I’m guessing they’re pessimistic.

This week I’ve been trying to decide whether to get No Man’s Sky or not and have now decided to give it a miss. While I’ve been intrigued but not excited for the last couple of years by the game the honestly quite lacklustre reception it has gotten, with many feeling the game has ended up being yet another survival game (Jim Sterling gave it 5/10 as a result (http://www.thejimquisition.com/no-mans-sky-re…) while Videogamer.com, who’ve been deliberately avoiding the hype, only gave it a 6/10 (http://www.videogamer.com/reviews/no_man…)), has seen me decide not to bother with it. It’s a shame really as lots of the features are interesting but if I have to spend lots of time balancing bars rather than just exploring and trading (which did interest me) then it sounds more tedious than exciting.

So that’s what I’ve been doing. What are you guys planning to do or what have you done? Also what are your feeling on this weird Senior Week stuff Gawker has been doing?
