Since this is very off topic, I figured I would put it here. We have at least a little while to wait until NMS is released, but we all keep coming back here regularly to be a part of the community and to get updates. So I thought: why not play some games while we wait? I have seen it help bring the community together in other places, and besides its fun.
So the way this game works is that I will make a wish. The person who posts below me will post that the wish is granted, but it turns out in a very different (not beneficial) way, and then they post their own wish. The wishes can be sincere or frivolous, but the answers should be comical and no offense should be taken. Because its all in good fun.
I will put one cycle of this game below as an example and to get us started. (You dont have to put the words "wish" or "granted")
(wish) I wish I had a cup of coffee.
(granted) A steaming cup appears magically above your head and hovers for an instant before it falls on you. You are now doused in scalding liquid. At least some of it made it into your mouth, but that doesnt really take your mind off the 3rd degree burns.
(Wish, to be answered by next poster) I wish my voice didnt sound so weird when I am recording it.
Sean Murrays beard begins to grow and he is mocked incessantly. When it reaches m he becomes so depressed that he gives up coding and burns all the source code for NMS, ensuring it never releases. Thanks alot
I wish the green monster energy drinks were no so addicting (they taste like sour apple cotton candy)
It was invented. Only the guy who invented it did too good a job and made an engine that leaps backwards in time. He then crashed into his parents house, killig both himself and the past baby-version of him.
FTL technology: lost in a time paradox.
I wish that we could have snow that melted slowly while still having daily weather that always stayed around 70º.
