    By scrolling through the responses to the announcement of BaRKy1911 taking over head-mod duties for theNo Man s Sky, it seems that the general consensus is it s a good move. People familiar with BaRKy1911 s history moderating some of the other subreddits speak highly of him in their posts, with little to Cheap RS 3 Goldno negative responses to the news to be found. At the very least,BaRKy1911 s experience moderating other large subreddits should helphim be successful with moderatingNo Man s Sky s Reddit community, which stands at over 150,000 members strong.While BaRKy1911 s presence may result in a more fan-friendly atmosphere for theNo Man s Sky subreddit, it won t result in all negativity about the game being purged from it. There are still many that have legitimate complaints about No Man s Sky, as it failed to deliver on the many of lofty promises made by Hello Games leading up to its release, resulting in people getting refunds and the number of active players dropping dramatically. Some people are still upset about the situation, and the subreddit potentially offers a place for them to express their frustration in a constructive manner.As long asNo Man s Sky detractors are able to state why they dislike the game without attacking other users, then they shouldn t have to worry about being censored. BaRKy1911 hopes to moderate the subreddit fairly, and if the other new mods have the same goal, then the subreddit could avoid additional shutdowns in the future.

     Since it s three games in one, it s possible that Frictional will release it at the standard $60, but since the games are all at least a few years old, it may launch at a budget price instead.Regardless of the price point, theAmnesia collection would have made a perfect game for people to play this Halloween, so its November release date is an odd choice. However, in its announcement post, Frictional referenced times it tried to bringAmnesia to Cheap Old School RuneScape Gold consoles in the past, only for deals to fall through, so perhaps a deal was cut with Sony at the last minute to finally bring the games to console.Frictional already has an established relationship with Sony, so Amnesia s PS4 console exclusivity makes sense.SOMA, a horror game that Frictional developed for years afterAmnesia, is console-exclusive to PS4, and earned decent reviews when it launched last year.SOMA took a year to become profitable, but even so, Sony must see value in Frictional Games and the titles it brings to the table.If Frictional s relationship with Sony is as extensive as it seems to be, then perhaps Sony is having the studio create a PlayStation VR-exclusive horror game. Frictional has a proven track record in the horror genre, and while the studio hasn t dipped its toe into the virtual reality waters just yet, it s hard to see how it wouldn t be successful in creating a VR horrorgame. Of course, that s just speculation at this time, but if enough fans go out and buy theAmnesia collection on PS4, it would certainly help solidify the partnership between Sony and Frictional Games.
