Zero Punctuation Transcript
Starfield, or to give it its full title, Starfield and Friends (he he he he) is the long-awaited new action-RPG by Bethesda, which by all accounts is what the lazy bastards have been making instead of the Elder Scrolls 6 or a non-shitty Fallout game, but who the hell needs those when you can have a game with a whole galaxy of explorable planets. Where there could be an Elder Scrolls planet and a Fallout planet and a Littlest Hobo planet and a planet made of meringue, why not. When space exploration’s on the cards, not even the sky’s the limit. So, how did Starfield turn out, now we’ve established that it oozes potential like a poorly made Big Mac does thousand island dressing? Well, it’s, it’s, it’s, it’s, it’s, it’s, huh, it’s, it’s, it’s really bloody boring, as it happens. I’ll say this, though, this is absolutely the game for you if you’re really, really into doors. If you’re openly door-sexual, and get illicit thrills from watching a staggering variety of sci-fi doors open in every imaginable direction with lots of little fiddly bits and lights and hissing noises then Starfield will get you more excited than the MST3K countdown sequence ever did.
