"Hello Games founder Sean Murray gives us a guided tour of one planet in No Man's Sky's universe as our month-long IGN First coverage kicks off."
Waiting for a Youtube upload, I'm not even going to bother with IGN's abomination.
Personally I think there are more important things in life than leading a crusade against a video player
That video player must die. Grab your pitchforks and torches and let's go destroy the monster.
I don't disagree with you but people were complaining about the IGN video player for at least 5 years and they still haven't managed to make it acceptable. Speaking on topic, the exploration and sense of discovery in this game is simply amazing. Can't wait to name my own planets and be an evil space pirate :)
The only thing that worries me about this game is substance. Yes, there is more exploration than we could ever ask for, but is there enough substance to the game as a whole in order to keep our attention after the first couple dozen planets we visit? In other words, why will I play after I feel I've "seen it all"? This is one of my most anticipated games, second only to Uncharted 4 because I really can't think of anything else that brings us something so new and unlike anything else we've played. (Oooh, Horizon. Forgot about that one. So this one is third.)
You made my day :D Bubs up !
Omg this game blew MY MIND !
No Man's Sky looks like a truly special game, and seems to be the indie game of the year, and a possible contender. It's amazing what this small studio has come up with off the back of Joe Danger. All kinds of respect to the guys and gals at Hello Game. No Man's Sky = The Journey of this gen. On a side note, seeing all the animals running around makes me long for what a Pokemon MMO or Pokemon Snap could be. -_-
Waiting for Youtube? Here you go: https://www.youtube.com/wat...
"Crusade"? All he said is that he couldn't be bothered to use IGN's terrible video player.
Yeah their player is horrible compared to YouTube's player but I don't see them ever changing it. *off topic note I randomly just got my bubbles back after n4g popped 4 of them a year ago lol :)
Oh, GDI. I worked hard to get my 5 bubbles again. Now, everyone has them.
I personally think it's, in most aspects, better than Youtube's player. Mostly the same but insanely better quality in video bit-rate.
just clicked play and it worked......in 1080p.....
lol same here, at 60fps too. I wonder what it is that makes it work so badly on some people's setups?
* No Man's Sky is going to be that game I can come back to every day or whenever and still have something new to explore or see. It's IMO a great "Rotation game", in that, if you mix this with 2-3 other games, it will most likely always stay fresh and fun. If ALL you are doing is just playing this, well like with any game, you may hit that wall, especially if you had unrealistic expectations to begin with. * To me this is a personal game...the type of game that I don't care about anybody else's experience, I are about mine with this game....I care if I'M enjoying the game, and it will be a game I play at my own relaxing enjoyable pace. Enjoy it for what it is. I have a feeling more old school gamers will enjoy this and the newer younger ones might be doing most of the complaining. just a hunch though.
@3-4-5 I'm with you...I simply will enjoy the exploration aspect of the game, the rest is bonus. It's the thrill of discovery that makes this game the most interesting for me, never quite knowing what you might find next...and to be the first to ever see it, and name it? Awesome.
* I don't even have a PS4 yet but I've been thinking about just all the possibilities of life and what the landscape will look like on these planets. The machines, the animals, the water, the landscape the pirates fighting it out above different planets. * My favorite thing though ? ^ Can't wait to find "My Home Planet", and kind of keep going back there every once in a while and use it as my home base. The thought of that alone makes me really want to play this.
"And still have something new to explore or see" Boy, do I have bad news for you.
Thanks, I'm actually subscribed to their YouTube channel... I just stopped bothering with their main site :)
Cheers me old mucka.
Here you go: https://www.youtube.com/wat...
I can't even watch the full video about 5 minutes in the video stops working. IGN you know you are doing something wrong when porn sites have better video players than you.
"18 mins of uninterrupted gameplay" Lies
Cant believe you got a "Well said". Totally off topic and hijacked the top half of the thread into being about IGN's player, not No Mans Sky.
Watching a video on IGN's player? BLASPHEMY!!!!! Thy shan't leave the path of light and step into the darkness.. Thus YouTube is Light, YouTube is Salvation! ... And the Copyright strikes hammer of justice destroying content creators and eating a big chunk of their monetization revenue :P Aside from the jokes and the lame remarks,I think you are definitely missing out. I saw the 18 minutes gameplay video and loved it, it is an informative gampelay to an extent. I hope your wait does not last too long until IGN releases the footage on YouTube.
@bloodborn - I loved this video too - this game has quickly taken the "sit back and chill" kind of mantle and looks like a game that will be the one that keeps me going for a good long while much like Skyrim. Hop in, fly around, mine some stuff, make better ship, etc. What worries me is in your comment and in the video - are there restrictions on or moderation of the names? I don't want to have to request entry to "YouMothersButt 1107-3" but the idea of naming planets is great and makes the game a bit more personal.
Ign's video player is absolute trash (at least its a step above polygon's active grease fire). But man, I don't I have ever been more excited for a game. I think you'll know by now if this game is for you. If you constantly need goals and carrot sticks this game may not be for you; and that's fine. But if you love game worlds, oh man, I'm sweating.
Apart from the mandatory commercial at the start it worked really well, really nice quality in full screen.
@chuk5 I see many comments about ign's video player being terrible, but I've never experienced any problems with it whatsoever so I'm wondering what is so bad about it??
Same! Do you have a fast internet? I do and for me the IGN player feels very snappy and most of the time the 1080p quality seems to be better than what Youtube offers... If we're really going to crucify one player, it should be the Gamespot one. It's a lot worse.
I was hyped for this game. And then I watched gameplay
and was even more hyped. there finished your sentence
agreed - but exploration and discovery seem to be the central theme of the game. hey, I could have went on for a couple of paragraphs about the game - it's going to have it's own economy...it's own periodic table!! being able to earn "cash" through discoveries to buy new ships and equipment. being able to decide whether to be a good explorer or go around killing everything....dang this game is going to be loaded!! i can't wait!
This is the game I've been waiting for. Years ago I lost so much time playing Starflight and this seems like a similar game but on a much grander scale. I can not wait to play this one.
you must not like exploration. there is more to gaming than killing and explosions. I'm super-stoked to get this game. i'll be playing it for a long time.
The funny thing is this game has killing and explosions
and then you saw the light bar on the controller immediate turnoff eh?
I get that exploring the universe is something that could be fun but then show me something that represents that. Every demo we see is the same old exploration show with no context to what that does for you in the game. Hopefully modding on PC will be big. I could imagine people building star wars and Marvel universe galaxy that we can explore. Still have my doubt though until I see more substance to the gameplay but pretty much am still excited for the PC release of this game as a space exploring game of this size and magnitude is what I have always wanted.
Did you even watch the video? It explains exactly what you just asked in your comment.
@Rimeskeem, I did watch the video and is is still not telling us much. It is cool though, maybe you are mistaken my wording of what I actually Meant but I did say I am open minded and will keep an eye on it and will get it on PC on release day if it has great reviews. I love games but I always do my research before blindly buying them .
I don't think modding will be possible if everything is generated procedurally.
Was , wasn't.. Personally I am again!
How were you ever hyped then? Considering the very first trailer was gameplay!?
I understand that this game is very big but dont you guys Think that popping is annoying ? every detail and bushes,creatures is popping out. looks uggly but Beautiful game
Just a side affect of doing procedural generation on such a large scale.
yea its the world generating rather than conventional pop in.. seems like its less frequent than the first few trailers so maybe it will improve further before launch
So when is the game coming out?
supposedly 2015 still
Game looks great and fun. They finally showed some game play mechanics which look good. I think the biggest thing this game has to overcome is its own hype. Many people have no idea what the purpose of this game is and will be disappointed its not what they thought it was.
what makes me excited about the game is everything that is possible. As Murray said you have many options of what to do, you can be a trader and never see more than one planet or you could do the exact opposite and see every planet possible in your lifetime.
It's an exploration game, which makes me think that it won't be for everyone. People should take it or leave it based on what it is- and it's indeed an ambitious project, maybe too ambitious for its own good. I wouldn't have ridiculous expectations for what I've seen so far, but I feel like people don't exactly know what it's going for, so the hype might negatively affect this game. Personally I hope they do well, they seem like nice guys trying something new, that alone gains my support at this point.
I fully agree with what you are saying. In fact, I would go one step further in saying that if this game hadn't be highlighted as coming to PS4, it might have just passed under the radar and become a critical darling of an indie. Since being announced for consoles, people have heaped expectations on the game that, quite frankly, I don't think the devs really intended. Sean Murray has gone on record in several interviews as saying that this is more of a personal journey. It's his answer to all of the sameness of objective based gaming. By crafting a world where you choose your level of interaction AND exactly what you do to interact, it completely allows you to totally create your own experience. If the game "fails", IMO, it won't be because of what the game does so much as because of the unrealistic (and frankly unfounded) expectations of what critics and gamers THINK it should be doing. That would be sad...but not altogether unexpected.
Peter Molyneux haha 😅 I really hope this is still on schedule for this year. Don't really care what some have to say. This type of curiosity and adventure is what's been missing in gaming for many years now. It used to be prevalent, but things change. I'm very much excited to see everything we *don't* know about the gameplay.
I don't really mind when they release it, every time they show it its looking better and better, I think they should keep working on it until they are happy with it and feel its ready.
Sounds even better, I didnt even think that they would have proper destruction (terrain deformation on all surfaces). Originaly I thought you could only mine predetermined mineral blocks. Now they revealed that the planets have cave systems and you can main as deep as you want. Hey maybe theres some subterrain animal species ?
ehh,honestly to me this game seems kinda boring..maybe just not my type of game..is this game coop?
Yeah everything I have seen so far screams borefest, I have a feeling this will be a HUGE let down so I'm staying away from it.
you could try it on pc just like i did with ryse, dead rising 3, titanfall, ori and soon killer instinct, gears ultimate, fable, tomb raider, sea of thieves, ...
@feelforlove Grow up dude..people like you make the gaming community trash.
From what has been said, there is no traditional multiplayer aspect to the game. They have said that you theoretically could run into one of your friends. But, with the size of the universe, it is highly unlikely. That being said, I'm sure that IF enough complaints are made about, that it's something that could be added to the game later. It would probably be cool to team up and explore together...even if it was just getting to the same planet at the same time.
This is what I'm kind of hoping for - I love the idea of being alone out there and just kind of seeing what it's all about, getting lost in the (awesome from snippets) soundtrack and art style but wonder how long I can go before a buddy and I can ultimately have more fun and be more productive. Hopefully something like you said like a warp to function or even joining through PSN/Steam will be a possibility.
This is insane. I need this.
My thoughts exactly! Can't wait to start discovering the universe!
From the service of a planet to outer space onto another planet in a matter of minutes. I remember long ago I was wondering when this could happen in games. And here it is, in an indie game
Indie merely means they are independent and not owned. You should ironically not be surprised that it was an indie game that actually pushed new ideas as they are not owned by a publisher oking or denying a games concepts based on sales, main stream gimmicks etc. I think we can all agree that the most amazing concepts that come this gen, like last gen, will come from indies. Independent teams have way more freedom then other teams.
