For me this was the PS4 game that stold the show!
LittleBigPlanet 3 stole the show for me, but even so, No Man's Sky still looks like all kinds of amazing
I tend to agree with Multiconsolegamer on this one, there are many great games coming from Sony with bigger budgets and fantastic graphics, but those are pretty much expected, this one came as a total surprise and because of that for me it was one of the highlights of E3
when it was first revealed (not too long ago) it had my curiosity. After seeing how much it has improved, it has my attention. And the beauty is, it was done by such a small team. I love it when a plan comes together.
It looks incredible yes but how will it keep the players interest while seemingly trying to explore the universe? Will there be some kind of a story? Missions? Will it just be mindless/pointless exploration and shooting stuff? Too many questions...It has to keep you interested in one way or another or this game as alluring and fresh as it might look will flop badly and I for one would hate to see that, we need games like this, you know new ideas unbound by corporate profit margins.
Are you seriously trying to turn this thread into a console war?
I agreed, this game is my favorite game from the Sony E3 for me!
I was happy to see a dedicated indie developer to get an opportunity to show their game and steal the show. You can even see how emotional he got on stage. So happy for him and his team. Indie developers would sell their kidney to make video games. Props to Sony for giving indie developers the chance to show off their hard work on the big stage.
Well said! I saw this and hands down (in my mind) won E3. The sheer scope of this game, especially for an indie game mind you, is incredible!
Interesting and very colorful, how I'd love to see shooters.
I'm glad it is a only a timed exclusive and will be on Xbox One. Thank you. ___ Team Xbox - Join up!
I was terrified when MS was offering support after their office flooded. Didn't want to see it go exclusive. Good to see everyone will get to play it. Looks stunning.
What about the parity clause?
parity clause, yes, even though technically it not an exclusive the parity clause will prevent going to the xbone unless they do yet another 180
Not trying to start a console war, but why would anyone want to currently join 'TeamXbox' Unless you like halo ? We've currently got the Destiny Alpha and Battlefield Hardline Beta...
i'm pretty sure that the parity clause prevents it from coming to xbox if it's out on another system first...
I think you are right Illision_Man, I think the parity is either gone or it has been modified to allow the hits to also come to XB1. -Warframe is coming to Xbox one -And 1001 Spikes was released on PS4 first, and it is coming to XB1. -Also Oddworld New 'n Tasty will be on Xbox One later this year The "debuting on console on PS4" quote pretty much gave it away. Great news indeed. Everyone should be able to enjoy this potential awesome game.
Those games all had deals in place before [email protected] was announced...which is allowed in the parity clause. That said we will know if ms has really changed if they dont allow this game on xbox one and do away with the parity clause.
Of course you wouldn't have played this game if it wasn't on Xbox One :)
That's a nice story.... bro. I dread to wonder how many of your comments we'd see in No Man's Sky articles of you downplaying and criticising the game you were yet to play. Probably an overwhelming amount. There's no way you were going to care about this game, unless is was on Xbone. Still, this is a "Sony-signed" game so don't get your hopes up too soon. It may end up biting you in the ass.
Not sure what you mean by "Sony-signed". Hello Games have actually said they are "super interested" in releasing it on PC. Gotta say it seems like a game which would benefit greatly from mod support.
By that I mean Shahid Ahmad of Sony signed a contract with Hello Games for this game: https://twitter.com/Migh_an... And none of us truly know the terms of that was other than "console exclusive", so it most likely will be on PC at some point. All I can imagine now though, is the team experimenting with Oculus and Morpheus. This could change everything: http://vrfocus.com/archives...
Any idea when it releases? This might hold me over till Star Citizen launches.
Whenever Star Citizen launches ;P
Presumably 2015, like most other games.
Excited for this game. Hope to hear more about what we'll be doing besides gathering resources and flying around.
Have to say I don't know about all these space games coming out.... I mean what is the incentive to play them? They have no real story or anything and will probably not have any good characters. Nobody else think just flying around in space will get old? This applies to Star Citezen and Elite Dangerous as well.
Well any game will "get old" eventually. Space games appeal to me cause I'd love to travel around in space discovering and exploring other planets and this is the only way I'll be able too. Unless of course scientists make some breakthrough and space exploration becomes affordable to the average person lol.
People used to treat the Elite games like people treat some MMOs now - just single player.. You make your own stories. If Elite Dangerous is like the old games there'll be plenty to do.. As for Star Citizen, They're promising a single player campaign. It wouldn't be a decent Wing Commander successor if it didn't have that.. WC had a very strong (if cliched) story, and some fun characters. No Man's Sky looks more Minecraft/explorish.. Again it'll be emergent gameplay, but sometimes that's really exciting.
Wait what I'm gonna have to look at this again maybe I miss something
Darthv72 thank you for the Django and A Team reference! Don't know much about the game looks epic I just hope it's not all air combat!
Does anyone really know what the gameplay is about? Wikipedia says "Players are initially given a totally uncharted universe to explore, where information about any planet's characteristics and lifeforms may be shared and updated with others." So do you think a monster hunter / slayer type gameplay system maybe? Or would it be completely non-violent exploration on the planets? I guess I'm still on the fence for the game without knowing what I'll be doing inside it. The space combat portion was a bit underwhelming but the planets sure get my creativity going.
Apparently everyone's working towards getting to the centre of the universe.. And you need better and better craft to be able to do that, so need to accumulate different resources, etc. I have no idea how this'll work in practice but it looks fun. :D
This game is about the journey, not the destination. I don't care if it has a goal or not, make your own. I can't believe modern gamers need hand holding to the point of telling them how to have fun in a game that is oozing with things to discover.
It's not like that. It's natural to judge new things on previous experiences. It's not some modern gaming fad.
Looks like a cool concept. Too bad it is online MP only.
Yeah, too bad people have different tastes than you, or are willing to try things they don't typically try.
What nonsense is that? I never said it shouldn't have MP, just that it is lacking an offline SP mode and I was disappointed about it.
The dev said the multiplayer is more like Journey or the Souls games, so "online MP only" doesn't really describe it. Didn't hit disagree, just saying.
Sean Murray said it's the opposite of an MMO. It's a multiplayer experience where you very rarely bump into other players, because it's a MASSIVE, INFINITE, EMERGENT universe. Think of the probability of bumping into other life forms in our universe, and that is representative of how this game probably will end up being. You visit a planet, and you can see the name of the person who discovered it first. You go underwater and see a coral reef, and see the name of a species of plant or fish and the name of who discovered it first. This game is pure unadulterated discovery. the joy of discovery in a sci-fi universe.
Have they said anything about base building or the likes?
And yet the other fanboys said the Sony E3 press conference didn't show anything new and just a bunch of multiplats.
