Just wondering what the general feeling about No Man's Sky is?

I was impressed at last year's E3, but the gameplay they have shown since and even at this years E3 still looks the same, i.e. not very deep or meaningful...

So my general feeling on it went from cool to it looks like this might be a case of overhype.

Unless there is something to do on those planets worth doing or in those systems then it will be pretty boring IMHO, and this is a very small indy developer so I really worry they just don't have the manpower or money to flesh it out.

I'm still somewhat excited about it. However that being said, I saw a short clip of one of the developers showing it off at some event and it was almost embarrassing to watch. The presentation seemed awkward and very anti-climatic like "that's it"?

Looks fun but there needs to be things to do to keep it engaging. I'm starting to worry that this will actually be just a walking simulator game with a neat procedural design to the game. So I would like to see more of what supposedly makes this a game. I did see guns and such so hopefully it'll pan out.

I stopped caring when it went from PC exclusive to PS4 exclusive with no real plans for PC release.

Yeah, it looks to be the same old same old no matter what parts(s) of it they show. An enormous proceduraly generated universe with not much to do, but do it over again and again.

Only just heard about this and natural comparison for me is to Star Citizen...

I get they are completely different games, but I was immediately struck with No Man's Sky that it seems like a potentially very empty experience. I mean the main attraction of MMPORG is virtual interaction with other players in teams, or competing against each other. I watched a No Mans Sky dev saying that while you can run into other players, given the scale of the universe the chances of that happening are 'almost zero'.

So what is the point of the game after you have visited the first few planets and named a few planets, suns and species?

- can you multicrew the ships (with either AI or human crew)? I guess it might be something if each time you go to a planet there is a risk of one or more of you dying
- can you upgrade your ship (and to what purpose?)
- can you build stuff?
- can you build fleets of ships to explore further, faster
- do you have to defend your planet and systems against aliens?
- or other human players (apparently not...)
- I have seen other ships flying around in the gameplay videos, are they AI or human? I guess they must be AI given the comment above, so what is the point of them? Or are they locals?

I can see this game getting rather boring rather quickly without the element of human interaction.

If you watch the Stephen Colbert interview, he struggles to get excited about it, and the demo just shows the guy wandering from plaent to planet, naming stuff.

I guess I expected something like minecraft on a planetary exploration scale, but it looks more like an endless tour of pretty tropical fish tanks.

I saw a clip from one of their presentations at one of those game conventions. The presenter or the way it was presented was low-energy, not much enthusiasm from the speaker and when they showcased a gameplay mechanic that they were building up, it fell pretty anti-climatically and almost as if you could hear folks in the audience, "Did I miss it? Was that it?"

I don't know what the deal is but you'd think they'd spare no expense getting the right team to show off their project to the world. It almost seems like they were unprepared. Maybe that's not fare as I did not watch the whole thing, I just remember it not being interesting.

I hope its good but I'm starting to wonder about the game and the folks behind it. I'd also prefer a PC version. If its only going to be a PS4 version I think they are shooting themselves in the foot. I would think most gamers interested in a title like this would be pc gamers/simmers.

I think steam is the cheapest unless you go with one of those 3rd party cd key sites.

If you go to the official site they show everywhere they are officially selling the PC version online.

They all list as 59.99 for me
http://store.steampowered.com/app/275850/
https://www.gog.com/game/no_mans_sky
https://www.humblebundle.com/store/no-mans-sky

Except this one which is very expensive...

thx, I'll take it from Steam's Store.

seems that an early leak happened, and that the game, from the leaker point of view, is a bit disapointing.
I had high hope for NMS and dont want to spoil me things, so I don't really want to see leaked gameplay wich makes me 50/50 for the preorder....
Still 9 days to go

Click to reveal..
The guy who got the early copy was for PS4. He got to the center of the galaxy in 30 hours of game play. He saw about 45 worlds. All of them had some sort of life (small rodents or something) but he never found a "green" planet.

He wont say what happens when he got to the center though. Lots of speculation on what happened but the guy never confirmed it. Says he doesnt want to spoil it for people. But as more people get their hands on the ps4 version you can guarantee it will be spoiled.

I watched that leaked gameplay video, and didn't feel like it spoiled anything I hadnt already seen in the official trailer videos, and to be honest the leaked video increased my interest in the game.

I'm waiting for Day 0 reviews to make sure the game has some depth and isn't just boring/repetitive after the first hour, but overall what I saw in the leaked video I really liked.

They dropped the day one patch last night. v1.03

It changes everything about the starting galaxy as well as rebalances the game significantly. Lots of people are saying the game is vastly improved to what people were playing before the official release.

Sandbox survival game.

It's like a 3D Starbound without crafting.
