I've been wandering around reachable areas from my ship for about a half hour. Found a monolith that taught me "Give" in xeno language and some outposts that look like they were abandoned in a fucking hurry.

Not a single piece of heridium was discovered but I've been finding metric fucktons of gold, iron, and platinum. Only realized I could get Heridium from creatures after killing a carnivorous bug that tried to eat me.

So what's the consensus on this game? With the lack of detail I assumed this game would be like a multiplayer space exploration game where each computer/console generates its own part of the universe and it contributes to a server which stores the entire universe.

Started on a beautiful green and red world full of plants, animals and every kind of resource.

Provided they are adding things that weren't supposed to be in the core gameplay like base building its highly possible for a future terrain overhaul.

I remember watching a video of Sean saying that it was theoretically possible for two buddies to agree to head in a certain direction with the intention of meeting up.

He said it'd take weeks and weeks but that's it was possible, and also said something like "Even if they make it to the same planet, one would have to say 'Okay, I'm on this planet and I'm on a mountain, where are you?'"

Does anybody remember watching that? I cba to find it.

In any case, the beardy fucker lied. If it is not possible to see other plays within the game, he lied. He should've stated that from the outset.

With all of the hype NMS had it seems like Hello Games had an opportunity to release one of the seminal games of the decade, yet they have deliberately avoided almost every feature which would have made their game a popular hit.

One has to ask, why the fuck did they do that? I would've waited an extra YEAR for this game if they would've just added a basebuilding/furniture type thing so I can make my planets comfy.

tl;dr NMS confirmed for monumental flop. Butthurt pandemic.

The only thing which peaked my interest in the game was the possibility of eventually meeting somebody.

I mean, I thought that if all players were in the same universe, and we'd all be heading to the centre of the universe, by the time lots of folks made it there the, other plays would abound.

Sean Murray is such a sneaky little fucker. He waited until yesterday to clarify explicitly that the game has no multiplayer despite having said in the past that it was possible. What an asshat.

massdebater

bought it on console since console players tend to have better communities and my pc isn't that good (three year old core i5, two year old midrange GPU)

did i fuck up?

Fried_Sushi
Fried_Sushi

Not sure about this but certain planets may have a high proportion of water and therefore oceans. It was mentioned in the 1.03 patch notes they increased variation on sea beds so thats probably true. However what I was saying is that if a planet has valleys with an ocassional lake or sea it will have so along all the planet insteadof having a non-uniform terrain generation.

All of this stuff annoys me too. Why is all of this stuff text-based? Like, it is 2016, and this is supposed to be a full price console title.

Can't we see the lava? Can't we have a little half-assed animation of you reaching in or backing away? Or would this have constituted some actual work for the devs?

Seriously pathetic. What were they thinking?

It's not like it's sold as "singleplayer" on Steam or anywhere else,or that the most quoted article about multiplayer is especially titled "stop thinking of nms as a mmo"

below minimum? yikes
the worst part is i can't put any newer GPU on here (i think) without upgrading the mobo
and if i upgrade the mobo i have to upgrade the cpu because there are no newer mobos with this chipset (lga 1155)

that "gotta replace everything" feel

Garbage Can Lid

One has to ask, why the fuck did they do that?

Because that sort of game can't exist on current hardware. But hyping one up is easy as shit in the currently completely insular video games market. No matter what, people will be forced to accept it, because "trolling" is the new word for dissent.

If we tell them nothing, they will make their own hype.

then when the game is nothing, we can then deflect criticism and look artsy by saying something like "They only dislike it because of expectations they themselves made"

It's brilliant in how easy it is to con gamers out of their money. Why does everyone keep pinning all their hopes on a messiah of developers? Weren't you around for the Molyneux and Spore years?

BunnyJinx
BunnyJinx

pcie 3.0 x16 is still the standard.( graphics card slot on your mobo) if your processor is a K (i5 2500K?) model it should last you a couple years aswell. Get a radeon RX480/70 if you plan on sticking with a 1080p monitor, just check your PSU

Ignoramus

they could've done that but it'd be a lot more work for a lot less content. What's better, 100 text based events like this or 10 animated events?

This game, design-wise, is just 3D Starbound/Terraria without any building mechanics.

That's why all the areas are huge and sparsely populated. That's why it all feels procedural and fake.

BinaryMan
BinaryMan

It doesn't explicitly said that. Read it again. It says that they added a function to scan systems that other people have discovered and increase the chance of collision. It's being ambiguous on what 'collision' means, if it means find another already discovered planets or find other people.

This game, man.
I barely thought it would live up to the hype, let alone exceed it. I've been playing for four hours straight across only two systems and about five planets/moons, and it has been absolutely and utterly humbling. My breath is being taken away at every turn.
I just drowned trying desperately to make my way out of a dark underwater cave on a cold, lonely, massive planet, with ominous growling startling me from far across some rocky, eroded mountains against the backdrop of a massive dark blue system. Earlier I was marveling at a herd of grazing antelope-like creatures on a little yellow paradise of a moon with a pink sky. Creatures were screeching in the distance and tinkling piano chords played in the background.
I very much appreciate the technical and leveling aspects such as mining and trading, but most of all, this game has been an extremely emotional experience for me so far. I could barely pull myself away from my first system once I acquired the warp cell. No matter what I'm looking at, I have this excitement and this wonder and frustration that I am inevitably missing so much. I have never, EVER felt this lost. Space just beckons, wordlessly. What a beautiful, beautiful, titanic game. I have no words.
Enjoy, everyone. And thank you, Sean and Hello Games. Jeez Louise.

Because they don't know how humans actually work because people don't talk to each other anymore.

So they base their narrative on the movies invented to give context to the worthless events in our lives.

It's like a tautology, almost.

1. Because people will buy it, because dumb.
2. $60 is like $30 in 1991 dollars, so they're not making that much money off it. Bigger companies can take the losses easier than smaller companies.

That said, i want to say goodbye to hello games.

The 970 and rx480 are fairly similar in price and performance however the 480 is newer and has superior dx12 support which is very obvious in games that use it. It had some issues with power draw at launch, but is allegedly fixed now. Processor advancement is quite slow right now and the 3570K is still a very good processor for gaming, especially if you overclock it, which you should since it's a K model.

The color of the sky depends on the composition of the atmosphere. Maybe the most common atmospheres in the universe are made of a chemical that makes everything yellow.

I personally think it's fun but there are situations where you're just going to be fucked.

When I first started I was on this toxic planet with ice storms every 3 minutes. Ended up just resetting out of frustration on that one too.

It'd be nice if the game just started you off on a a reasonably neutral planet but...

THE GAME DOES NOT HAVE A NETCODE ALL YOU CAN FIND IS CLOUD SYNCHING
THERE IS NO POSSIBILITY OF PLAYING WITH OTHER PLAYERS OR MEETING THEM BECAUSE YOU ARE ALONE IN YOUR GAME WORLD. FOREVER. THE DEVS LIED TO YOU WHEN THEY SAID "WELL YOU CAN MEET PLAYERS BUT ITS EXTREMELY UNLIKELY"

You bought a game made by a developer who literally lied to you and didn't disclose CLEAR information about whether or not there's mp at all in this game. Let that sink in for a minute.

ok, I'm gonna start with the negatives so far;
1. The tutorial stinks
2. no functional map of the local planet/ star system
3. some graphics pop in on ps4, probably will be better on PC tbqh

now with those out of the way, this game is literally the kind of game I grew up wanting to play. You can go anywhere and do almost anything. So far I've collected a bunch of junk to upgrade my ship, suit and weapon, went into space, got in a dogfight that I had to run away from, traded with crazy looking aliums, wandered around finding monoliths and learning their language. It's a grind to start with but after a few hours I'm learning the mechanics, and shit is smooth af now. I'm hoarding units so I can buy a baller ship with a huge cargo hold, then I'm gonna go from star system to star system trading while working my way into the galactic center. All these naysayers just can't handle a game that doesn't hold their fucking hand from the get go

I didn’t mean to do that to my mom but I’m literally in shock from the results tonight. I feel like I’m going to explode. Where the fucking fuck is multiplayer? This can’t be happening. I’m having a fucking breakdown. I don’t want to believe Hello Games is so corrupt. I want a universe to believe in. I want multiplayer in this game and fix this broken universe.

The answer to this question is similar to the one above. Yes, you may meet other players on your No Man's Sky journey, but then again, you may not. It totally depends on what you do.

But what is interesting is that even if you do bump into another player, you might not even notice.

Unlike other multiplayer games, ships belonging to real-world players won't be tagged with their name or any other indicator – a bit like Journey.

However, developer Hello Games has revealed that other players will look different from anything else in the game – especially if you spot them walking on a planet.

"You effectively see their suit, actually," said Murray. "So you won't know what's inside. It still won't answer for people whether you are an alien or whether you are a human or what you look like.."

It's still common, BUT there are still a large number of cataloged planets where it doesn't exist at all. There are even nearby (relatively) celestial bodies that are said to contain no metals whatsoever.

Gold is still worth a lot
I don't know why I expected anything different... Disregarding the truths of our galaxy, it's common sense that if there are literal mountains of something it shouldn't be worth anything.

To anyone confused I'll try to clarify.
Things like Gold and Silver are worth a lot in Earth culture because they are difficult to find on our planet. (Fun fact, diamonds are worth a lot because of greed, there are currently enough unsold, uncut diamonds claimed by two companies for every man woman and child on earth to be given a quarter cup of them)

Every celestial body has different makeups and "ingredients", meaning things that are rare someone are easily found elsewhere. gold, iridium, silver, osmium, palladium, platinum, rhenium, rhodium, ruthenium, tungsten, while rare on earth can be found as common as dirt on other planets and moons.
241 Germania is a great example, in our solar systems outer belt, it alone contains enough "rare" earth metals to be worth more than the entire planets yearly income.

This isn't really super science or anything, it's very common knowledge to anyone with even a basic understanding of how the universe works. It always boggles my mind when any fiction that accepts rapid space travel still places any value on the same things we do on earth.

this game is going to flop, even before we found out he was LYING about there being multiplayer for at least 2 years of development

the game has fuck all to do and is B O R I N G
every time he's demoed the game there's an implication that its building up to something more but its literally nothing but an empty open galaxy sandbox, he played on stream yesterday and had nothing to talk about except for the technical aspects of lightning and procedural generation because thats the gimmick of this INFINITELY SHITTY GAME

As a dev i suspect he just got carried away in that interview. Instead of answering the questions strictly based on the current and planned code, he went into romantic-hype mode and answered based on the current imaginary build in his head.
Seen it from Molyneux a thousand times.

Still baffles me a bit too though. How do you sit there and listen to someone call your single-player game an MMO and not immediately correct them? Hype's a helluva drug.

Comparing it to Dark Souls III, the gestures and in game names give communication to enjoy.

No Man's Sky would certaintly have benefitted from having the opportunity for cooperative gameplay, but in the current construction of the game, just being able to see someone else offers very little. While it wouldn't need structural overhaul, it would need some significant mechanical additions.

Guessing you guys never played Starbound.

When the world is as big as this, there's no reason to ever, ever go somewhere you've already been. Just keep moving, there's always a new planet with more stuff.

That's both the blessing and the curse of having a "sandbox" this big. Nothing you do matters. You could literally be nuking each planet you visit, fuck each SOLAR system you visit out of extinction, and it wouldn't make a shit bit of difference.

We, the undersigned, believe that Sean Murray of Hello Games misled consumers, either by lying or otherwise willfully perpetuating misunderstandings about the multiplayer, online capability of No Man's Sky. He is quoted and on the record as stating, multiple times, that players will be able to encounter, compete, and cooperate with each other in the game, which is not possible.

We believe this amounts to false advertising of the product, as many people purchased the game under the false belief, perpetuated by Murray, that they would be able to play with others, and as such, demand to be refunded the full purchase price.

In addition, we demand Hello Games be shut down, and it's employees commit japanese ritual suicide.

There you go, now someone just has to copy/paste into petition.com and we're all set.

The first goal-directed event planned for Habitat was a rather involved treasure hunt called the "D'nalsi Island Adventure". It took us hours to design, weeks to build (including a 100-region island), and days to coordinate the actors involved. It was designed much like the puzzles in an adventure game. We thought it would occupy our players for days. In fact, the puzzle was solved in about 8 hours by a person who had figured out the critical clue in the first 15 minutes. Many of the players hadn't even had a chance to get into the game. The result was that one person had had a wonderful experience, dozens of others were left bewildered, and a huge investment in design and setup time had been consumed in an eyeblink. We expected that there would be a wide range of "adventuring" skills in the Habitat audience. What wasn't so obvious until afterward was that this meant that most people didn't have a very good time, if for no other reason than that they never really got to participate. It would clearly be foolish and impractical for us to do things like this on a regular basis.

Again and again we found that activities based on often unconscious assumptions about player behavior had completely unexpected outcomes (when they were not simply outright failures). It was clear that we were not in control. The more people we involved in something, the less in control we were. We could influence things, we could set up interesting situations, we could provide opportunities for things to happen, but we could not predict nor dictate the outcome. Social engineering is, at best, an inexact science, even in proto-cyberspaces. Or, as some wag once said, "in the most carefully constructed experiment under the most carefully controlled conditions, the organism will do whatever it damn well pleases."

The tech to this game is pretty damn amazing, the way everything streams seamlessly as you jump from the surface of a planet, to outer space, to another planet, is really great.

Too bad there is no game here, it's a glorified tech demo, none of the game systems are particularly fun or relevant or have any progression to them. I was expecting at least Starbound (1.0) in 3D, that would have been pretty damn cool, but there's none of that.

It doesn't matter, they already got their money, millions of people will have bought it before realizing how shallow the game actually is. Exact same shit with The Division. Ubisoft make FUCKLOADS of money and broke sales records, then over the course of a month everyone realized it was a piece of shit and by the end of it 95% of the playerbase just left.

This. There's like a grand total of 7 things to do. Unless there's some sort of faction warfare, or Piracy crews, or mission system nobody is telling me about, this is probably the biggest let down since Destiny at release.

I don't like this feel. When will people wake up and stop with this fucking hype bullshit. This is the wrong time to be hyped for things. 2008-2011 was the time to be hyped for things. Not now. Jewish tricks are too common these days.

false advertising. they're putting fucking stickers over the ps4 cases hiding the "ONLINE" part

Sean Furry is recording saying theres multiplayer and you can meet people, which has been proven to not be possible.

Not him but it is kinda annoying to get screenshots off the ps4.

sean: the game is so vast that it's extremely unlikely that you'll ever meet another player
sean: you have to understand the scale that we're aiming for, even if you knew where a player was it would take you an impossibly long time to get to them while they waited for you

people literally found eachother on DAY FUCKING 1

why are people acting like the "multiplayer" lie was the worst, when the worst is the fact that they clearly lied about the scale of the game. i wouldn't be surprised if the game was actually 1/100000000000000000000 the size that they claimed it was

That's still $60 more dollars that people don't have anymore. Plus a free cookie. PLUS HG's immediate bankruptcy

Need a source on that outer belt object, all I can find is material that suggests it's made mostly of carbonaceous material.

Not being a dick here, I'm actually really curious about this.

Everything in the game is cosmetic. A shallow veneer stretched super thin. It's awful. I've been moving as far from the first system as I can and the planets are all the same. Either toxic or not. With different colors. No ice planets yet. No oceans yet. All have life. Only moons can be atmosphere free.

Well-implemented multiplayer would have been the only thing that would get me to pay for No Man's Sky.
Now? No Man's Buy.

Yeah, that would be a positive. But they've got Sony's backing, so I'm sure Sony would do everything to ensure they got as much of their money back before they let the studio die its proper natural death from bad business strategies and project management.

I had the same problem. Go into freemode in the galaxy map and the systems youve discovered will have dots around them
