NO MAN’S Sky is set to receive big updates in the future that will change the game’s focus from exploration and survival to other things.
They have to. With updates this game will thrive. Just like Minecraft this game's potential will blossom with future updates.
If they truly are adding base building that would be awesome. I just hope they continue to put out stability updates cause my game is still crashing :(
My game never crashed until after this update. 10+x today lol!
It has cashed on me 2 times. after 10 hours has become extremely repetitive. I have moved on, maybe future updates will change my mind.
It crashed on me the first time but i hadn't installed the latest firmware. I thought I'll just play for one hour but i spent 3 hours without noticing. This game can eat time and how.
Base-Building with a zoo for each animal you find ^^ ... just kidding base-building makes no sense in this game. Only if you can warp to your base without warping through other systems (or at least not each system).
It depends. What would be the point of base building? Can you design the base the way you want; ala, something like Fallout 4 or The Sims. Will there be hangers, to have multiple ships? Will it be so other players can stumble upon your "base" and sell things to a merchant, which in-turn gives you some profit? What would be the point in it? Store weapons, perhaps? Or would it just be a safe zone - like the little sheds? I feel like there needs to be some.. meat, some substance. Otherwise, I'm not worried about it.
It crashed one time for me.
The idea of base building seems cool, but there needs to be a reason to do it. Just having a building I made on a planet isn't really enough
With base building and the possibility of inviting a few other people onto a planet...damn!!!
Yup, i waswaiting for this. I had a feeling they would provide more content.
It has great potential for longevity. I hope they have some sort of road map for it, going forward.
Earlier, I was revealed Sean's mom.
Big fan of your trollwork here. Keep it up. <3
They need to add a lot of things to make it better. I would like the game if it didn't crash so much or be so repetitive. I do hope with future updates and better patching. I may rebuy the game.
Its probably just me, but I find this game the opposite of repetitive. Yeah, it has its loops like every other damn game I've played, but its the endless possibilities of where to go etc. that I love. I've become so disheartened with games lately, remasters and sequels that all feel like the same thing over and over. I've wanted next gen to be the introduction of dynamic gameplay, not better graphics and frame rates. Yeah, NMS can be better, and I believe it will be, as I posted above, its the best template ever created. But something is just new and fresh to me. Many of my friends gave up and went back to Destiny, ESO CoD because they said it was too repetitive, and I was like what? I stopped playing each of those games b/c I was doing the same thing over and over and over. I agree that multiplayer, even if its just inviting players to see bases you've built would be epic. I do think its coming.
"....Many of my friends gave up and went back to Destiny, ESO CoD because they said it was too repetitive, and I was like what? I stopped playing each of those games b/c I was doing the same thing over and over and over...." In Destiny, we do the same old things, but differently. In No Man's Sky, we do/explore ever-new things, but samely. It's all about what kind of repetitiveness you can deal with.
I'm still not that interested in this game but what I'm getting is that when the Xbox version comes out it will be the complete version, as it should have the patches and extra content right off the bat, and the beta test will be done
Butthurt fanboy confirmed
I could play it if I wanted to so I don't know what your calling me butt hurt for https://s32.postimg.org/fbc...
I'm sensing a flip flopping from the tomb Raiders case.
Oh so like how Rise Of The Tomb Raider will be the complete version on PS4, right? Thanks for beta testing it for us.
You do get all the dlc included for the same price as Xbox players paid for just the game
Yes, excactly. The only difference is that everybody in here is disagreeing with him, but agreeing with you. Sadder than that is Dark Watchman is getting all those agrees in spite of being nothing more than an ignorant tool. You people need to grow up, seriously, and let people have their opinions.
Yea difference is. Tomb raider was a complete game. Start to finish. Not so with NMS The situation with NMS right now sounds a lot like a beta.
"I'm still not that interested in this game but I'll continue to click on articles related to it so I can troll because I'm upset that I can't play this on my Xbox" FTFY. "But I'm not interested in a exploration game like that" Yet you still click on articles related to NMS so you can troll. Owning a PS4 doesn't mean you aren't a fanboy, Rookie and Septic are proof of that.
I could play it on my ps4 if I wanted to https://s32.postimg.org/fbc... But I'm not interested in a exploration game like that. If he adds a tonne of stuff and makes it a complete game I may be more inclined
I hope this decision wasn't made as a result of some of the backlash, instead of what they had planned from the start.
It sounds like it could be a combination of fan requested features and average metacritic reviews. The game has a good base, but definitely needs more substance to warrant a purchase at it's current price. I could see enjoying it as a "go between" game, where I played it when there is a lull in new games. I do that with Minecraft at the moment because there's no end to it, just like No Man's Sky.
Even if it improves the game?
He has the greatest template ever made. I love this damn game and if I were him, I'd be giddy at the opportunity to keep creating.
Good luck Sean, might be hard convincing anyone at this point, the haters slander campaign has been pretty effective.
If they deliver, the quality will speak for itself. For example, Driveclub had a terrible launch and had massive amounts of hate. But they fixed the problems and it's now generally seen as pretty good.
I can definitely agree with that. I played it a bit more at my friend's house the other day and, in all, it's like a 6 of 10 for me. It would be more like an 8 of 10 when they add all the extra stuff to the game. Destiny was also lackluster until The Taken King came out, in my opinion.
Just as much as the conspiracy theories I think. People have not liked the game. It's okay. And for the lack of common sense. Yes other people have liked it too. But no hate campaign theories are needed. @magicbeanz please link me to the campaign site then. Thanks!
Other people have liked it. That's okay too.
Its not a theory, its a reality.
I can be hard to recover from a rocky launch, but once the dust settles all that will be left is all the people that are still playing the game because they love it, and a few hardcore persistent haters of course ;)
The haters slander is why PS4 is on top this gen. It deserves it because of the better resolution and frame rate. Nintendo Wii U under preformed because of the slander. It's amazing the power of the media. Just glad I don't listen to them and have all three consoles. All of them are worth the purchase and so is NMS.
Ok... No specifics, but enough breadcrumbs to lay a trail. C'mon Sean, some meatier weapons for space battles, auto craft things like bypass chips when needed, offset creature animations so they are not all walking in formation, spice up the AI. I wanna love this game, I like it in short bursts but some simple things can really change things up. Currently it is not greater than the sum of it's parts... and this game really should be. I feel the love Hello Games put into this.
Yeah,they could make different approaches in engagement.
Sweet. At least they are hearing all the feedback. Game will grow into something crazy awesome. Its a great game really but the launch was terrible and the game is still unstable. IMO this game is something you buy for the long haul. It should get updates for years with new content and revisions to systems. At least that's my vision for their game. They intended for it to be what it is nothing more. Its vast and beautiful but shallow and empty. I see the next Minecraft or star citizen that's constantly growing and evolving. Kind of wish I waited a year to buy it as I'm bored before I have the first atlas pass. There's no goals or fun distractions. Need building ASAP.
So they are adding new things while their previously promised features have gone for a toss? *Sarcastic claps* I know I am going to get disagrees, but well I'll still provide a link to the source, so that people don't call me un-knowledgeable and the disagreeing people know that they are just being fanboys: https://www.reddit.com/r/Ga...
Lol! I didn't realize that was the case.
Too many things missing. Got a Steam Refund and bought Deus Ex with that and still saved a few bucks. Maybe will buy it at a 10th of the price, because that's what this game is worth to me.
i've always thought this game had a lot of potential, and naturally, updates are the best way to deliver it. i just hope they go through with it and make this game as great as it can. it's such a shame; the state it's in now :/
The potential is definitely there.
Moved on already, too little, too late! After talking about charging for updates, when he said they would not, forgetaboutit! Already paid $60. for a incomplete game, screw em... I played 30 plus hours already, Zzzzzzzzz... DONE!
It has the potential to be much more with the right attrntion, this is what it NEEDS.
"You're a bruiser asked to return to the underground fighting world by a friend who's in dire straits---your man Manny owes some money to underworld heavy-hitter D-Mob, and you're going to fight to win Manny's money back." Sounds like it will be very interesting as they move past just exploration into being about other things.
So in other words... People have bought into a $60 beta. Does that sum it up? Can't believe Sony honestly told Ark devs that they couldn't release the game on ps4 till it was finished. What a joke I do hope NMS gets improved tho. Just the whole thing is a huge problem with games nowadays and devs releasing half finished games or a bunch of dlc, etc.
By the time any significant update comes out games such as the new Sports games, Battlefield 1, Call Of Duty, Watch Dogs 2, Titanfall 2 will be out & no one will care
I got the Platinum Trophy earlier today (PS4) and that's it for me. The game was fun but it just got way too repetitive for me. To whoever is enjoying the game still have a blast! =)
I HATE this game
So they release an incomplete game? Sounds like an expensive early access game on Steam...but cost $60!!
so instant travel wil be added with base building stuff? because the way the gane is designed right now there is no point in goiing back to a place once visited because it would take too many ressources and take up way too much time.
give us what they promised originally sans crashes. that would be nice.
Decided to sell mine on, would still give it a 7 but getting back the price I paid and will probably repurchase at a later date, starting to get a little bored , it could really do with decent trading and levelling system(something like elite ) this has the makings of a great game , but is lacking a certain something for me, will be keeping an eye on the updates they do for it...
I was gonna get this game, but after finding out what it really is, i'm just going to keep waiting for Star Citizen to be finished, which will include real multiplayer and an enormous persistent universe as well. Just watch 6:55 on... https://www.youtube.com/wat...
Soo, does this mean they are adding pokestops to the game or nah
Just make space combat deeper. It would go a long way
If they add in everything they false advertised before the game's launch they might avoid a lawsuit. I'd be happy with ships you can walk around in and base buildings sounds ok. I was one of the biggest defenders of this game and Sean Murray, but honestly he lied quite a bit and the writing was on the wall with their review embargoes. I'm happy if you're getting enjoyment out of this tech demo. I got 20 hours out of it and I had some pretty good moments, but the game isn't a $60 game and I feel cheated. It doesn't matter if there are AAA games that are only 6 hours. Those games have higher production values, voice acting and actual narrative. No Man's Sky is a half baked sandbox with some really interesting ideas. Yes, it's insanely impressive for an indie game and I'd have happily paid 30 bucks for it.
You get that haters? PLAY SOMETHING ELSE! Dammit, I'm so sick of people complaining about the game. If you don't like it, don't play it! Anyway, what I'd love to see in the future is the ability to customize a larger ship, filling it with your favorite plants and pictures from your travels. And even pets!
