Ask any gamer out there, and I'm certain they'll tell you that there's not many days better than the release of a long anticipated video game. There's no better excuse to take off work, order your favorite takeout meal, and sit down for a long battle session. Well, today is one of those days, and unless you've been living under a rock, you're bound to have heard of "No Man's Sky," the newest title from Hello Games.
No Man's Sky is a massive procedurally generated open universe game, that incorporates many aspects from other wildly popular titles such as Minecraft and Destiny. It contains popular survival and crafting mechanics, along with vast space exploration between millions of planets.
I know if you're a gamer, or you have a virtual astronaut in your life, today is a big deal. Here at Guerrilla Tees, we agree, that's why we're honoring today by sharing our top five gaming tshirts to celebrate the No Man's Sky launch. Check them out, and be sure to pick one up for your friend who will undoubtedly forget to do his laundry on this monumental day. He may need something to wear outside later this week.
For right now, the debate is really only between the Playstation 4, and the PC, sorry Xbox One users, no holiday for you. Since I'm a PC master race kind of guy, I'll have to dismiss you PS4 players as well. Typically though, there are a multitude of options when it comes to your weapon of choice, and this funny video game shirt displays them all. Maybe you're a fan of some old school Goldeneye, with the most uniquely designed N64 controller. Or maybe you prefer doing some real role playing, and the interactive wii-mote is your preferred tool for combat.
Everyone knows that dreaded sound when you're about to lose and the screen fades to black. Or perhaps your heart starts to race when you're in the heat of the moment. This retro gaming shirt displays what truly makes our hearts tick. Once we pick up that controller and enter these worlds, we feel at home.
Tried and true, this Street Fighter shirt has been one of our hottest sellers since the start. It doesn't matter if you're a fan of the title, or just a vintage gaming junkie, everyone loves the Hadouken! The sound of Ryu's voice still rings in my ears from the original NES version. It even offers a friendly reminder of how to pull off the iconic move, just in case you were thinking of taking a break with a throwback.
Hopefully this isn't a problem, given the "18 quintillion planets," but maybe you'll have an equal hatred for some of those planets. This shirts for those of you Overwatch players who are sick of playing the same four maps all day. If you ever find yourself saying "I hate this map" as soon as the loading screen hits, we made this one for you.
When it comes time to stretch your legs and maybe even (gasp!) leave the house, make sure you do so wearing this stylish Pokemon Go shirt. Seek out an adventure in the real world along with your Squirtle, Bulbasaur, Charmander or for the savvy players out there, Pikachu. Once you're sick of wasting all your pokeballs on Pidgeys and Rattata, you can head back inside for some more virtual space exploration.
Thank you for taking the time to read our blog on this special holiday. Now get back to slaying the aliens, and exploring all of No Man's Sky's planets. Check out our Facebook page and post your video game release date stories for a chance to win a funny gaming tee for yourself.
