Alternate universes or parallel dimensions must exist. With how crazy things are in the world, we must have jumped into an alternate reality. We have a worldwide pandemic; we’re seeing those sworn to protect murder instead, living through all the countless climate disasters, and even experiencing the early stages of American fascism. One would have to believe that this can’t be the real world, almost as if someone has trapped us in some hellscape. Yet somehow in this messed-up reality we live in, good things shine through, even if they are small and inconsequential to everything happening around us.
Sea of Thieves is the pirate game I’ve always wanted. It doesn’t deliver in all the ways I would have expected, but it makes me feel like the world is my oyster. Rare nails the look, sound, and feel of being a pirate with Sea of Thieves. Where it falters though, is giving you the information necessary to get started. Once you get everything figured out though, Sea of Thieves is at its most fun with friends.
