Ya this has really had me asking is there a story here or is it just going to slightly different planets over and over and over again?

I think whatever you see so far is what you will be doing which isn't much. I feel like its gonna get old quick.

That's pretty much the feeling i got from day one. It may look nice now, but it'll get old quickly. Procedurally generated content may sound nice in theory, but it generally means less variety in what you see when playing the game.

Elite was one of the most engrossing and long-lived gaming experiences I have ever had. This seems to be very close in concept but has far more content, I personally don't think you could be more wrong.

A story is inevitably finite and will always end at some point, what Hello games have done is provided you with a universe and the tools to write your own stories over and over again.

If they get this right, it will be the most re-playable title in recent history, if they get it wrong, you'll be bored quickly.

Here's hoping they get it right.

* For Me, I can see this game being a game that I play for like 4-5 days, every 5-6 months.

Play a ton for a while, get burnt out, play something else, come back months later and discover all new stuff.

* It's almost like it's one game + an expansion + another expansion, but all set in the same game.

^ Because the potential is there for so much different variation and options I think this could be a game worth owning that still retains it's fun and value 5-10 years down the road.

* Like you could play it again 10 years from now and still find and discover new planets and life.

At least that is how I see it.

Yeah it's basically all we've seen since it was announced last December. A year of seeing footage of them jumping from point A to B in a space ship.

We should of seen crafting stuff by now, building, equipment, tools etc

Kal0psia1019d ago

Yes, been waiting for something beyond that. Also doesn't it feel overhyped for some reason?

DigitalRaptor1019d ago (Edited 1019d ago )

Maybe you've not seen it, but you should know that all of that, and more, is coming.

If people keep asking the same questions about what you do in this game, this is where you should point them: http://m.neogaf.com/showpos...

What ya expect, flying elephants?! ...btw, that would be cool.

I don't get why people are having problems understanding what this game is about. Sean Murray has made it crystal clear what you will be doing in the game. It's all about exploration and discovering new and mysterious things. That is the basic concept of the game. The object is ultimately to get to the center of the galaxy where there is something special that happens. For people that want to combat stuff or trading can do so and do whatever they want. This clearly is not for people that just want to just kill things.

There is already a game that does that. It's called Spore.

The obvious isn't so obvious this gen...

DigitalRaptor1019d ago (Edited 1019d ago )

Why can't people just accept that the scale of this game is what is most impressive?

The gameplay systems have already been discussed in depth, but they're still being implemented by the devs, who are just making a game that they would like to play themselves.

Gameplay element #1 is exploration.

That is the core of the game, and yet people have issue with that? WHY? Do people really just want all their games to boil down to killing things? Will RiME get the same kind of redundant criticism for having no combat?

the_dark_one1019d ago

i guess its provably cause it isnt coming to their system. (for now, or if ever). but look at shadow of colossus it was basically the same thing over and over and yet its a game that was absolutely amazing. but people always have to complain now a days.
