No Man's Sky' swaps fetch quests and missions for a living, breathing universe of infinite possibility
Kinda hoping this gets ported to PsVita, Xb1, and wii u. This kind of game should change the industry
This game is gonna flop like the next spore. It's too ambitious and the object of the game is not clear.
I actually enjoyed spore. just saying
Not having an objective is not a problem at all, Fez is one of my favorite games and was just about exploration as you couldn't even die. Also these's Minecraft where you just build things with no reasoning other than just building them and Minecraft didn't do so bad did it?
There is an object....to explore the vastness of the game.
Spore was AAA published by EA, this is an indie.
I don't remember Spore ever having this kind of buzz. No Man's Sky arguably stole E3 and instantly appeared on many people's "Most Anticipated" lists. Nothing points to a flop.
I don't care if it flops. I just know that i want it. I am perfectly fine exploring this universe solo
You can play it via remote play on Vita but there's no way the WiiU or Xbone could run this game. It's a PS4 exclusive anyway so you won't be seeing it on ANY other console.
Dude, Xbox has shown more interest in this than Sony before E3. Remember VGX? Yeah, after that Microsoft really supported it. I am sure this game will be on Xb1. I dont know whether i will buy it on ps4 or xb1, but i am sure of it being on xb1
@60 "Xbox has shown more interest in this than Sony before E3." If that was true then they would have nabbed it as a timed exclusive. But they didn't because Sony showed more interest in the game.
It'll be on PC soon enough. I have no doubt that the PS4 *console* exclusivity will last a long time, possibly a year. Remember that this is EXACTLY the same team behind Joe Danger.
No amount of hoping and praying will make this game magically appear on Xbox One. If it wasn't for that stupid console parity clause, you might have been able to play it on Xbox One.
You can't be stupid enough to believe that it can't run on the X1, can you? kinjo - Too bad that Microsoft always bypasses the clause when they want a game bad enough, so yes, there's a very good chance that it comes to the X1, especially since it's coming to the PC.
@ Kinjo Don't count it out completely.. There have been a couple games this gen that have already got around that stupid parity clause. Outlast and Contrast so far to be specific.. "Our goal is not to limit developers who are interested in Xbox One," "In instances where games have signed a timed exclusive with another platform, we'll work with them on a case by case basis. We encourage them to get in touch at [email protected]"
It is pretty ambitious, but it's not the black magic that a lot of people think it is. Making an infinite universe where everything is different is something a lot of aspiring game programmers do in their free time to put in their resumés, or just for fun. https://www.youtube.com/wat... Procedural content is popular among indie devs (minecraft, Binding of Isaac, etc...) because it is actually easier to do this (and often more fun) than to manually populate a world.
Yep. It's the way a lot of games used to be done. Elder Scrolls 2 did it. It wasn't in generated in real time, but the absolutely gigantic map was clearly procedurally generated at design time rather than the thousands of towns/dungeons being hand-built. The problem procedurally-generated games often have is they can often feel lacking and hollow. In No Man's Sky, I'm hoping they build in enough interaction with other players and enough real goals (like a strong economic framework and political ramifications) to prevent it from losing its appeal once randomly flying around gets boring.
Infinity Tech demo is another example. http://www.youtube.com/watc... That was from 2010, but there was a video years before showing a seamless transition from space to the planet surface. You will also notice around the 2:30 - 2:50 mark he begins selecting random stars which you can travel to.
This game has really peaked my interest!
It will not be allowed to fail! If they r being truthful and following dayZ and other gamea and releasing an extended beta to help shape the game, it may do very well. U do not need missions or quests to b successful. U simply need to give players the tools they want for their playground, and they will take it from there.
I'm really excited for this game. Take your time Hello Games. Us gamers will be waiting.
Reminds me of Minecraft and Starfox.
|This is the most ambitious game in the universe not like aliens are making games or anything, why not just say world
Flying from planet to planet in a huge online universe with millions of other real people and it is so big that its highly doubtful you would meet up with anyone you really know is mindboggling sweet!....... Day one!
