That's ... too many planets.

Pfft, it's only 18,000,000,000,000,000,000 planets

This game is going to be so awesome ( I hope)

Lol right? 18,000,000,000,000,000,000 planets and not a single reason to visit any of them. Game is destined for greatness or total disappointment, and it's the second option, guaranteed. A game where you don't actually do anything. Sounds fun... I'd take 10 well thought out and designed planets with a reason to visit over the true number of procedurally generated ones.

I feel like this game is more of an experiment than anything, it will be interesting to see how it turns out. Once it is set in motion, how will they ever address all the inevitable bugs? Don't think it'll be possible.

They weren't kidding when they said it should be extremely rare to run into another player.

This game is either going to blow my socks off or be one of my biggest gaming disappointments.

Can't wait to find out which it is.

MysticStrummer1222d ago

I expect a lot of people to have unreasonable expectations as usual, or at least pretend like they did, so I'm pretty sure we'll see a lot of "What a letdown!" type comments.

Game is free to play right?

If it is i will give it a go on PC

mushroomwig1222d ago

No, it's not free to play. You might be waiting a while to play it on PC as it's a timed PS4 exclusive.

GribbleGrunger1222d ago

I hope this game isn't too short ...

Tsubasa-Oozora1222d ago

Bubble for you. That's funny

Muzikguy1222d ago

Same here, I'm a little worried :3
