    This party's cool. But I wish there was a way to find the geeks and gamers in the crowd.

    This seems to be a comic released far past the relevance of the reference unless my old ass has missed something and NMS is still talked about nowadays.

    Which is possible. I’m not the most up to date dude.

    There have been many substantial updates to the game that reports say have vastly improved on the shell that was originally released. It's recently been back in the Steam charts so it must have built some kind of new momentum.

    I think 'proper' multiplayer may have just been added which would fit with the comic.

    I dunno, his main complaint seemed to be that cake is not naturally occurring.

    Hello Games just released a massive, massive update called No Man's Sky Next, and the game also launched on XBox One. They turned their already pretty good space exploration game into a pretty great space exploration game.

    Also, I too call it Norman's Guy! Hah, that was a neat surprise when I loaded up the site this morning :D

    I actually just bought No Man's Sky on PSN back on Monday, because it was on sale for $26 on that date, and also because I've heard a lot of buzz about the NEXT update for it. So far I've really enjoyed it. I'm still learning, and I don't really know what I'm doing, but I'm having a fun time doing it.

    For those wondering, they have added things like base building, true multiplayer, space trading with aliens, and more robust ship building since launch.

    I’m glad to be updated on the state of the game. Even though I don’t have the time for it I always wanted a game like this and am even more impressed after the initial hate brigade against it the developer stayed in and turned it around. Good for all involved!

    We make those from naturally occurring elements, so by the given logic, still all natural.

    How arrogant we humans are. "Oh, things we make aren't naturally-occurring." As if we aren't part of nature. As if we aren't still subject to its rules, even with all we've built. As if a reckoning will be postponed indefinitely.

    Enh, which you say "everything is natural", then you've basically just tossed the word in the garbage. Beyond e.g. "everything", words aren't generally very useful when there's nothing they don't include. As such, I think it's pretty reasonable to say something like a skyscraper isn't "naturally occurring". It's our word. We invented it to use to describe things that we didn't make.

    Does make you wonder where on the natural vs artificial spectrum beaver dams might fall as some of them are bigger some manmade ones.

    It's not really about big versus little, or complex versus simple. Diodes are not "natural", even though they are very small and simple. It's not even about something that can occur in nature. If we mix sodium and chlorine in a lab to make salt, it's not "natural" salt as it it's something humans made. It IS still "salt", of course.

    I'd say beaver dams aren't naturally occurring, because they require the work of an animal to assemble them. Ditto for things like bird's and wasp's nests.

    Otherwise you'd have to draw the line at the difference between sapient life (like us) and merely sentient life (all the other animals).

    I'm pretty sure it's fair to say natural is stuff not made by humans and vice versa. Since we're humans and we're the ones using the word.

    I'll go ahead and clarify that I was exaggerating for comic effect, before a real argument evolves around a point o was not making in faith.

    I think we all got that, just seemed like an interesting conversational point to kick around.

    That's exactly what "natural" means, in this context. Anything not made by human beings (directly or indirectly).

    Where it gets really tricky is when you bring the extraterrestrials into it...
