Space Quantity Surveyor is a ridiculously addictive game. Oh, sure there’s also some plot about recruiting operatives and saving the galaxy, but really it’s all about scanning planets and strip-mining them from space.

…Wait, why can’t I scan this planet? I don’t care if it’s a heavily populated, industrial world–I want to shoot probes at it and steal all its precious, precious minerals! How else will I embiggen my numbers?

(Yes, I did finally get Mass Effect 2. Yes, I did spend too much time playing it this weekend. No, this is not a real review. But, yes, it is a very compelling game.)
