MMGN writes: I listed No Man’s Sky as one of the games I was most intrigued by heading into E3. We’d heard so much about this game and what it hopes to be, but we’ve been teased and lied to with trailers in the past. Scope is important because you can make a game look bigger in a condensed trailer with selective footage. Throw in some buzz terms and suddenly the hype meter goes into overdrive, and you could definitely say that happened to No Man’s Sky after last year’s E3 reveal.
I planned to see it behind closed doors at E3 2015 in the hope of seeing a little more of what developer Hello Games was promising, and I certainly got that. Fortunately, I walked away convinced that No Man’s Sky is exactly what Sony says it is: a big (biiiiiiiig) procedurally-generated universe waiting to be explored.
