I haven’t personally experienced the solar salesmen of Fresno County, but yeah my friends have told me about their tenacity. Oh and yeah, there are scorpions here. Not many to be honest, I think I’ve seen like 3 in the past 20 years, but that doesn’t mean their are not scorpions, and they really freak some people out.
With that said, I’m not opposed to Starfield, but exploration isn’t really all that big of a motivator to me. So the joke about me not wanting to explore this planet is kind of true. But games allow us to explore a lot of stuff that we otherwise couldn’t, and do so without the scorpions… or other pests. So there is something to the idea.
