17 Day-One Observations About Civilization VI

Unlike Adam, I’ve not been lucky enough to spend the last month soaking in a deep Civilization VI [official site] bath, so I leave it to him to give you the complete picture. I’ve spent a big chunk of today with Firaxis’ latest historical turn-based strategy epic though, and already it’s filled me up with things to say about it. I’m genuinely surprised by how different it feels. There are reasons why I’m massively charmed by it, and there are reasons why it’s been frustrating me.

Rapture Reborn: A BioShock Remastered Gallery

Almost ten years after we first daddied and kindlied and golfed, BioShock has today returned in an apparently fancy-panted remastered version, aka Bioshock: The Collection [official site]. Sadly it’s not in the best of shape, in terms of what we PC folk tend to demand from our settings menus and whatnot, but perhaps a more overriding question is but how does it look?

I shall show you, in thirty different ways. A few thoughts of my own just beneath the cut too.

Gallery: The Environments Of Deus Ex: Mankind Divided

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is a beautiful game, but it doesn’t deal in sweeping vistas and natural beauty. Its visual currency is instead invested in ornamental stag heads, tree statuery, fluorescent lighting, swooping electrical cables and complicated ceilings and stairwells. I took 18,000 screenshots while playing the game and I’ve collected the best inside. Beware: here lie spoilers for environments, locations and, probably, with some plot details embedded within.

No Man’s Sky: A Gallery Of Gorgeous Space Vistas

Hello! I’ve just updated this gallery of screenshots with my latest travels in No Man’s Sky [official site]. Mostly I’m just documenting lovely, peaceful moments and lovely colour palettes. Humour seems to lend itself better to video than screenshots, as with these animals.

No Man’s Sky: A Gallery Of Gorgeous Space Vistas

I’ve spent a significant chunk of the last few days having an explore in No Man’s Sky [official site]. I still have my reservations and there’s so much clunkiness and frustration that needs dealing with AND the tutorial/new player onboarding is dismal – in fact, my thoughts are pretty much in line with John’s review of the game – BUT I’ve also had moments of joy, and I do feel compelled to keep exploring. My screenshot count is just shy of 400 right now so I’ve put together a kind of travellogue to illustrate my journey so far via my favourite images. You can click on any of them for a larger version and you can navigate the gallery using the arrow buttons just next to the images.

Into The Sea: An ABZÛ Gallery

I know, you’re all off exploring the stars, but please don’t neglect the seas. ABZÛ [official site] is the most beautiful sight I’ve seen on my screen this year. I know it has its irritations – particularly, the controls leave my sense of tranquility battered and bruised – but nonetheless its explosion of undersea life and air of casual exploration pleases me enormously. I felt I should share some of the sights I saw with you.

Subnautica: Views From Under The Sea

Over the last three days I seem to have racked up 18 hours in Subnautica [official site] and several more than 2,000 screenshots. I’m playing in Freedom mode so I can ignore food and drink requirements and spend a lot of my time building little bases to act as viewing platforms for kelp forests. BUT! I also discovered the freecam command in debug mode so here is a whole gallery of undersea loveliness to try to communicate why I’m spending so much time under the sea!
