I seriously think that on top of everything No Mans Sky is going to be my GOTY. Like I knew it was gonna be at E3 and my hype kinda fizzled before the show, but seeing everything they added since it's Spike debut and BAM I was fired up again, cause I don't think anything excites me as much as Space exploration.

I'm just a little bit disappointed that the game isn't actually multiplayer (I was lead to believe it was. Dunno why). I read that on their website only yesterday.

It actually has some online feature but it's just that every player is playing in their own separate worlds and they can have an influence on other worlds. Kinda like Dark Souls without the invasions. It will probably still be a cool game though

Here's the link:
"Choose whether to share your discoveries with other players. They’re exploring the same vast universe in parallel; perhaps you’ll make your mark on their worlds as well as your own"

Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor is shaping up to be the best licensed game since Batman Arkham.

this was a great E3, IMOO the best in years, great games coming to all platforms PC/PS4/XB1/WiiU/Vita/3DS

It's kinda like this. When a player discovers something, they can choose to name it and share it with No Mans Skys in game database. Or keep the discovery to yourself.

If you share it, it will show up in other players games as what you named it (Given that your naming has passed certification of course lol). And it'll also place a waypoint people can warp to. Or otherwise travel to. However I'm not sure what the advantage of keeping things secret is just yet but I'm sure there will be one.

But I agree I would love to see some kind of multiplayer, if not MMO at least like Minecraft where you and invited friends can explore together.

Yup...I agree, easily one of the most impressive looking games at E3! I can't wait to play it!

Dinosaurs and space exploration FTW!

Dude, crazy moment happened to me last night. I'm sitting in my room playing some destiny with the door open. My doorway to my room is literally at the end of the kitchen and my roommates are having some people over and doing their partying thing.

One guy comes in and sees me playing Destiny and starts talking to me about his friends game. First off it's apparent that he isn't well versed in video games. Apparently he had a good friend that he meet working in a reasturant. He tells me this guy was originally Scottish and has wanted nothing more than to develop video games. He also goes on to describe him as a prodigy as he is 21 at the oldest now.

He goes on to tell me that he started working with this small group from the UK (This is taking place in NC, USA)and he just got shown a trailer of the game he was working on. He started to describe it as GTA but on a island and it's all about exploration and you can got into space (again he obviously isn't well versed in video games). He's trying to remember the name and I say "That kind of sounds like No Man's Sky." not because I thought that's what it really was but I just saw a few parallels in what he was describing.

He immediately says "Yup, That's it!" I was in awe. Apparently he is one of the many art/graphics designers. He is in charge of modeling pretty much everything down to the detail of the controls in the ships. He recently just got back from a month long trip in Australia just getting feedback and pictures from their beaches for inspiration.

I really hope I get to meet this guy, especially considering that I would love to hear how his job as a modler works in a game that is all proceduarly generated.

for me it was:

In no particular order

Elite Dangerous
No Mans Sky
Ori and the Blind Forest also looks awesome

There were quite a few exciting things from Sony but they were mostly very early in development.
Puppy_Farts  +   610d ago
No Man's Sky - yup, this looked really exciting and new. Very excited to play this.
MasterCornholio  +   610d ago
No mans sky was amazing. I can't believe that an Indie studio managed to produce something like that. Like it or not Indies ar bringing innovation to the market while most AAA studios produce the same franchises over and over again.
incendy35  +   610d ago
Hard to say since I wasn't there but of all the show floor demos I saw Ori stood out the most to me. The controls just look so damn perfect!

its witcher 3 for me , no man's sky looks amazing but until i see gameplay i'm not buying into the hype , its still more what i want that game to be than what it will actually end up being .

If I'm not mistaken, the trailers are of gameplay
bleedsoe9mm  +   610d ago
i hope there is more too the game than that , the devs has said there is but i don't think they've shown it yet . thats why i think its just too early to be game of the show .

It's an exploration adventure/discovery game more than anything else. There will be more to it than the trailers you've seen, but those trailers are all 100% gameplay.

Some people crave games where you can just go anywhere and explore infinite worlds, seas and space. It seems like the ultimate discovery game and I could never get bored of a game that looks like they've shown so far.

Axiom Verge in my veins! Guy worked like 7 years on it before Sony gave him a pub fund, and now he can work on it fulltime.

Funny to see that one pop up b/c that was one of my choices selected for N4G's indie month, as suggested extra or something. Not sure if that'll pop up though.

Looks like a solid title.
