No Man's Sky Preview - First Impressions at GamesCom | Trustedreviews

The presentation for No Man’s Sky has to be the most Ying/Yang experience Trustedreviews have sat through in about eight years of writing about games. It began with a fifteen minute preamble from Hello Games’s studio head, Sean Murray, explaining to a room filled with hacks that he didn’t want to be there, that he didn’t like talking to people like us and that everything that we were about to “see was going to be shi*t”.

When this game launches, I am going to take some vacation time from work, get a small fridge, and park my behind on the couch. I don't think I will see sunshine for a few days.

Awesome article, BTW. Really well done. I am so looking forward to this.

I am so looking forward to this game, a whole universe to explore in which ever way you choose, cant wait

This game sounds absolutely mind-blowing. I knew I was going to love it the moment I saw the first piece of gameplay last year.

"Planets don’t exist until the player arrives at them and when they leave, those planets vanish. The avatar sits at the centre of an algorithm that generates environments as far as the eye can see. There’s no danger of the player running out of space because no mode of transport they’ll ever use is capable of moving faster than the algorithm’s speed at generating the environment."

Amazing. I'm anticipating this more than most upcoming full retail games.

When this game launches, I am going to take a vacation from life itself and become one with the game.

Hypeometer +100

Great preview and I cant wait for it either. I just want to get lost in that universe and forget everything else.

P.S. "Ying/Yang" ftw

*Yin/Yang - Common mistake, made even in this article.

If there are millions of planets, how will they name them all? I get that the planets are generated procedurally, but are the names too? I mean, someone has to input the letters to form the name right?

Nicaragua1310d ago

I think it is only the content of the planets which is generated procedurally, the galactic map (complete with system/planet names) is already there and will be the same for all players. It would have to be like this for the multiplayer element otherwise everyone would be referring to planets by different names which would not be a good player experience for navigation.

Even if this was not the case and they are going to generate the planet names on the fly then its pretty easy to do just by having a list of words than the game can pick from and then assign additional characters - ie Nicaragua VII, Nica Ceti III

darksky1310d ago

One thing which seems strange is that if a planet vanishes after you leave the area then what happens when you come back to that area. It would be odd if the planet and its contents were different each time you visit it.

I would prefer it if it stayed the same like real life.

hermsgerms1309d ago

It would be neat if the first person to land on a certain planet had the ability to name it.

IndianaBonez421308d ago

If you find a planet first, you get to name it.

still skeptical about this game. it all sounds to good to be true.

I'm really looking forward to this and WiLD next year.

SuperBlur1310d ago

I am on the same boat, i love most of the big AAA title coming up this year and next but these 2 games bring something totally new , NEXT-GEN should i say , to the table

I hope they both do very well so that we can get more variant of these.

mogwaii1310d ago

This game is not only the game they always wanted to make but the game we mature gamers have been waiting a long time to experience, this more than any other game needs to deliver, ALOT is riding on this game and i truly admire his vision and passion, i cannot wait!
