There’s loads to like about Starfield: the house dogfights, the exploration, the neverending checklist of quests, the wonderful primary story… Oh, and in addition the plushies.
Sure, you learn that proper. Whereas Bethesda has at all times been lauded for his or her impeccable consideration to element, it actually does really feel like they’ve taken issues to a complete different degree with Starfield. All of us bear in mind The Lusty Argonian Maid from Elder Scrolls, and that was humorous and all, however by no means have I been so enthralled by Starfield’s criminally lovable line of house plushies.
I first encountered these after I arrived at Jemison. I’d picked the Child Stuff trait at first of the sport, which allowed me to go to my dad and mom within the metropolis, although it additionally meant having to ship them a small quantity of Credit every week. Who knew filial piety was nonetheless a factor within the house age?
Upon getting into my dad and mom’ residence, they directed me to my outdated bed room, which had been left untouched since I left house to work for Argos, and the very first thing I noticed was my beloved Parsecpooch.
I imply, simply have a look at this factor! It’s a canine in an area helmet!
I by no means knew I wanted a canine plushie with an area helmet so badly till I laid eyes on Parsecpooch. And the title? The title is simply *chef’s kiss*. The amalgamation of an astronomical unit with an endearing pet title is simply perfection. It’s a pooch that measures distance in parsecs. What extra do you want to know?
Out of the nook of my eye, I additionally noticed one other plushie hiding on my shelf. Right here’s Plushie Galacticat.
Not fairly as cute or as catchy of a reputation as Parsecpooch, I admit, however the injury was accomplished. For sure, the invention of those two lovable plushies despatched me on an admittedly unhinged journey to search out and gather each single merchandise on this house plush line.
The outcomes have been… disappointing. I’d solely managed to search out two different plushies over the course of my travels in Starfield, and so they weren’t even that cute.
Right here’s Xenosnuggle and Cuddleosaur. They’re house aliens and dinosaurs, I assume? I was fairly obsessive about dinos as a child so I used to be glad so as to add these to my assortment, and I suppose Cuddleosaur’s a fairly respectable plushie title.
Truly, on second thought, Xenosnuggle is a fairly humorous title too. Just like the terrifying Xenomorphs that Ripley’s spent her entire life making an attempt to annihilate in Aliens, however snuggly.
Nonetheless, none had managed to elicit that very same sense of pure, unbridled pleasure I obtained from laying eyes on Parsecpooch for the primary time. It was all downhill from there; I simply didn’t notice it.
Even so, it was good discovering happiness within the smallest of particulars in Starfield, a sport that’s been marketed to be the most important, and most expansive RPG Bethesda’s ever put out. Somebody make these house plushies a factor in actual life please. I’ll pay good Credit for them.
