Thought I'd give my two cents on the game itself.

It sounds like an exciting prospect, doesn't it? Being able to travel through space, meet alien races and shoot bad guys in big ships. What I think really gets to me in this game is the true sense of scale that you feel when you fly through the cosmos. As outer space is what it says on the thin: Space. And it's impossibly colossal.
So picture this: You've just exited your first planet after fixing up your neat little ship and are ready to explore the stars. Then you see another planet a short way away. And when you start flying to it, it says it'll take a day. Turn on the boosters, it'll take 8 minutes. But even then you have to make sure you don't crash into it. And then perhaps you forget that you're heading towards ANOTHER PLANET, and you almost forget just how big these things can get. And then you make it through the atmosphere, and touch down on the surface, looking out to the landscape around you. The sense of scale is simply boggling, and trust me, I've felt it a few times myself.
I suppose it's human nature that we can imagine something that's infinitely colossal, but being able to comprehend it can be quite another. It sort of puts into a perspective in a way, that you're a tiny little thing on a sodding great rock orbiting a gigantic star in a colossal solar system in an even bigger galaxy. It at those times in which I just sit down, and appreciate what there is to see. Maybe we don't need to see it all, and just remember the little comforts of what we've got here. But that's just me talking.
Admittedly, some parts of the game have become a little repetitive, since I've found most of the aliens I've met are only wearing different goggles, and new spaceships cost as much as a house, but there we go.
I've heard that people are having their own complaints about the game, either they find it boring or are having technical issues, but hey, I managed to get it to work for me, and I enjoyed, so might you.
Get the game if you want to.

This is a picture I made for my friend's birthday at the end of May.
It's based on his fanfiction story that he's been writing for a while now, and I thought I'd make something special for him.
Had it printed onto canvas for him, and he really liked it.
I hope you will too :3

I know I haven't written a journal in such a long time, but I felt like just sharing my current two cents right now.

As you may or may or not know, Britain's been having this big referendum about leaving or staying in the EU. I can't remember what was the specific cause of this personally. Anyway, after seeing some important facts and figures about the topic, I learned that a lot of it was purely speculation and not fully concrete. And I felt that staying in Europe would be better.

Anyway, long story short...

...Britain is leaving the EU.

...

I don't want to live in this country anymore...
