Wow, they're still angry? Over what? The game is what it is, and what it always set out to be. I watched the previews and teasers/trailers, and when I bought it, I knew what to expect and that's what I got.

They should be angry with themselves, for perhaps having unrealistic expectations or for simply getting hyped up for a game which in the end just wasn't for them...

Apocalypse Shadow610d ago (Edited 610d ago )

Just wondering..

Do the ships fly differently yet and have you been able to go into one of the portals? Does joining one side in battle affect your standing with the other alien races? Any giant worms moving through the dessert sand?Because that's what I saw and heard from the trailers and Sean.

More like misleading and unfinished when I bought it.

Eonjay610d ago

If everything that someone was outraged over led to a charitable fundraiser we could save the world in a week.

IamTylerDurden1610d ago

How could u see any of those things in a trailer? Other than perhaps the worm. Would the things u mentioned really change what the game is? No. The game is the basic experience it was shown to be, it's a 71 metacritic, go cry over something else.

Army_of_Darkness610d ago

These people shouldn't be complaining considering the fact that they bought the game based on hype alone, rather than wait for a few reviews before deciding on the purchase.. It's their own fault because this is no different from buying a 4ktv, don't just buy based on a cheap price, do some research and go from there.

vega275610d ago (Edited 610d ago )


I'm convince you either work for hello games or are getting a check to defend it. I have never agreed with apocalypse shadow but in this case. He absolutely right. Sean said those things was in the game and it has already been proven that he flat out lied. So stop with the bu bu bu its 71 on metacritic. That only proves that the critics who reviewed this game wasn't honest. Especially when you look at other games getting low scores for not even half the problems NMS launched with.

Retroman610d ago

If Hello Games made another game no one would buy it.
Sean Murray not in Position to hype anyone these days .
NMS Blackball Hello games.

XanderZane610d ago

Agreed and I don't see any reply back from Yi-Long. lol! Definitely an unfinished game and Sean Murray probably took a permanent vacation away from the public and social media.

DanteVFenris666609d ago

Those are minour features. That got axed. If anything they should have just been more quite an indies study first time in the spotlight and they just said too much too soon.

Its getting old now. We get it you didn't like the game. Leave the developers alone.

mogwaii610d ago

Like they left all our moneys from the sales of this abysmal game alone right?, please.

S2Killinit610d ago

Didnt they? A lot of people returned and got refunded. Others who played it for hours were rightfully rejected. Besides, at some point you just gotta let it go.

quent610d ago

publishers rely on empathy and keeping quiet so when people eventually forget/move on to newer things they can repeat the trend of doing it all over again which is announcement/doctored screenshots/hype-marketing/pre order bonuses/previews(vertical slice)/beta testing(customer based bug testing)/review embargo's/?/profit!

Apocalypse Shadow610d ago

Not sure if you're replying to me S2, but I still have the game on my hard drive. If there is such a thing as digital dust, then no man's sky is collecting digital dust on my hard drive as I can't seem to bring myself to play it anymore because parts of the game are missing, Sean is a lier and now they won't even speak to owners letting them know what's up with the game and if it will be updated. That's BS to me.

I followed the game until it's release. Even went to PSX in Vegas and listened to the guy being interviewed about their game. He's a lier and is now hiding behind lawyers.

Angeljuice610d ago


The poor man has had to go into hiding because of the harassment he has suffered over a video game.

Nobody lost their livelihood or life's savings, it was a luxury item. People pay more for cologne and don't threaten Dior if they don't like the smell.

Do you really think anybody wants to repeat the experience of being berated and abused by tens of thousands of people like Sean Murray has been?

IamTylerDurden1610d ago

Mogwaii, if u bought the game and it was dramatically different then u expected then u simply didn't do enough research. Better luck next time. The core game is exactly what it was shown to be.

Septic610d ago (Edited 610d ago )

Wow....leave the developers alone?

This is how people get away with fleecing others. That kind of attitude is the problem. 3 months and no disclosure from the guy who made the game, not even having a courtesy of a statement to disappointed fans.

And now you're passing the buck on to gamers.

And that's why you're part of the problem.

S2Killinit610d ago (Edited 610d ago )

What are you talking about, the guy is getting death threats. Those who were truly upset returned their product by exercising due deligence. Others kept playing then decided that now they want to jump on the i dont like it train. Then there is those that not only never played it, but they dont even have the console to play it, and yet it doesnt stop them from complaining about the game. these I find to be worst than the rest of them.

vega275610d ago

OMG. Yes let's all feel sorry for poor sean murray and hello games who made millions and their publisher millions off lying to gamers and denying them refunds based off false advertising and being a broken game at launch by both. Yes they are the victim here. /s

Sorry i don't feel sorry for them. They deserve everything they are getting. They have no intention of updating the game or answer any questions of why the game launched in the state it was in with all the delays or why they weren't honest from the start about the progress of the game.

People have a right to be angry and express it else this type of behaviour will continue. The more we keep talking about it. The more hello games and other dev's know that they can't do this shit and move on to the next game and people will just forget and buy your next new trash game.

xDealtwithIt610d ago

So gamers get to rag on ubi, microtransactions, CoD, Xbox constantly but please, please leave No Man Sky and Sean Murray alone.

Leave a game that was over hyped, under developed, charged full price and complete garbage alone.

The sony defence is ridicolous. But instead of facing the problem we get fanboys just going around accusing everyone of never playing it and worse yet not even owning a ps4. As if that solves the problem.

S2Killinit610d ago (Edited 610d ago )

OHH so its about MS and Sony! I was wondering why people are being unreasonable about this. Its xbots being xbots, you shoul have said so earlier so I dont waste my time arguing rationally.

So in that case yeah, gets your pitch forks out, fudge the law right? I mean if what he did was wrong, who needs the law, you know where this type of dispute is settled? Instead lets all send him death threats because he is no longer human and our fake outrage is more important than his life, health, and reputation.

vega275610d ago (Edited 610d ago )

Oh S2Killinit

Stop with the victim [email protected]$t. Sony had a hand in it too. They helped get the word out about this game and knew the state of the game before and after release. They even delayed the review til after the game launch when it was too late for those that pre-ordered the game base off the hype they help it garnered. All sony cared about was getting their cut of the money they made from the game and not about how unhappy gamer felt they were lied to and cheated out of their hard earned money.

Also stop acting like ps4 was the only place to play NMS cause it wasn't. I don't own a ps4, ps4 pro nor will i buy one. But i did buy the game on steam. Which was were i was able to get my refund back unlike many that do own a ps4. In which sony denied them.

Stop acting like every complaint only comes from X1 owner when in-fact many sonyfan and steam fan are outraged. You can go to the forums and read pages of complaint from ps4 and steam owners.

xDealtwithIt610d ago (Edited 610d ago )

As usual, instead of adressing the actual problem let's blame the xbots!

As Vega said this game wasn't even exclusive it was on the PC. And instead of Hello Games actually making the game's UI more fluid for PC they instead lazily ported over NMS to the PC with all the UI flaws and crashes from the PS4.

Let's not address that though, it was the xbots that are being unreasonable. This only proves that as long as a game is at least associated with Sony in some way you won't mind the actual end product no matter how bad it is. "Just blame xbots."

And so concerned about Sean's health? Lol, were you concerned with the many sony fanboys sending death threats to Square over FF13 coming to 360.

Oooh poor Sean, made millions off us by selling a shitty ass game. Yea, I'm so concerned for him.

It's a shame not everyone got a refund. Hello Games are just uuntalented crooks. No surprise some of the staff have left, no future in Hello Games.

Orbilator610d ago

I'm loving it , intact I gave my hard copy away and bought it on digital. Wish people would stop telling me what I fooking like and what's a crap game and how every body hates it when its clearly not the case. I seen people joining ps4 communities, which are set up for people who like the game, just to moan about something. Well I wish they would all just get Tae fook

These are the ppl creating the toxic environment, they are the reason Sean has remained silent. Ppl aren't robots, would you stay and let an angry mob throw stones at you?

Dabigsiebowski610d ago

I wouldn't allow people to throw stones at me if I can back it up. Sean Murray and Hello Games can't back it up. The game had a long dev time and countless delays. They shot themselves in the foot.

Corpser610d ago

The game is missing so many advertised features, people knew there would be little mp but turns out there's none, Sean needs to answer questions not hiding

Allsystemgamer610d ago

If you thought the trailers were representative of the final're very gullible and blind. Half the shit in the trailers isn't in the game.

Gh05t609d ago

A trailers only job is to represent the product.

Dharma360610d ago

I never saw the giant sand worm that was so prevalent in the numerous trailer's .Or the crashed spaceship in the snow.

PurpHerbison609d ago

Only issue is the price tag. It is not a $60 game or even close. It is a perfect $20 title.

Derpy609d ago

I agree, not to mention every gamer buys a game they don't like from time to time and regret it. It's part of being a gamer. These losers need to get a life and move on. They're really starting to come off as idiots. Nobody likes wasting $60, but come on, it's not worth letting it control your life.

Imalwaysright609d ago

It's not about buying a bad a game, It's about false advertising. Why is that so hard to understand? False advertising as well as other anti-consumer practices such as broken games need to die. The only ones coming off as idiots are the ones defending these shitty practices in detriment of their own rights as consumers.

ChronoJoe609d ago

The reddit don't seem angry. They just want the developers to speak about the game, what happened, and what lies in store in the future, if anything.

It's a little sad really. I feel that Sony should step in and do something, they did publish the game after all. They should not let the studios under their publishing handle their fans like this, it harms their brand too.

sampson3121609d ago

the losers down voted your statement because they are FUCKING IDIOTS!!!!

Thats it i m starting a petition for a ps3 crash report I had send Bethesda back in 2011 for Skyrim to mark the 5th year of no response. Take that Angry No Man's Sky Players!

Who's with me???

phantomexe610d ago

Why not i'm still waiting on fallout 3, New Vegas and a skyrim ps3 patch. The games aren't like they showed me, i want money back lol. The entitlement plot thickens lmao. Where Overload or Overlord whatever his name was when you need him. He won 2016 troll award. I'd sign it Ultra!

Nitrowolf2610d ago (Edited 609d ago )

Well tbh i mean it has been 3 whole months since hes spoken about the game, and the last real content update we heard was base building being added soon near launch so....

At this point it more to do eith wjere is the support or feedback from the man himself

i mean this just screams "ha i got you all and now i have your money, see you when my next project is here"


Its a company head, if this were some big corporation with this issue investers would be harsher and asking him to step down.

If it were me, yes I would be because I would take responsibility

IamTylerDurden1610d ago

Yea, bc you'd be out in the public if there was an active smear campaign attacking you AND the thing you are most invested in. Gtfo. Ppl are human.

Imalwaysright610d ago (Edited 610d ago )

I'm with you but its probably too late now. You should have asked for a refund a long time ago.

opinionated610d ago

Cry baby culture. If you don't get what you want then whine, take to the streets, riot, start a petition, start a fundraiser. I'm sure the charity is really useful too, like an "awareness" one lol.

I saw an article that said the gone home devs raised 15k for a gay rights charity. That's some of the the dumbest shit I have ever heard. What did that money go towards exactly? Somebody's wedding cake? It's not like there are kids starving in some shithole. People are so dumb.

Nitrowolf2610d ago (Edited 610d ago )

so wait what are you actually complaining about? The whole point of this (nms) charity is A) it goes to a good cause and B) To turn the toxic negativity into something positive.

you wpuld rather have them just continue on with long rants and such?

xMANB3ARP1G610d ago

I would rather ppl stop crying about every God damn thing.

Adrian_v01610d ago

No one ever knows what he's complaining about. Don't waste your time.

IamTylerDurden1610d ago


I3loggs24610d ago

I agree man, fuck charities /s

opinionated610d ago

where did I say fuck charities? I gave an example of a dumb charity and the useless crap people gin up money for. I stopped reading before I got to the charity when I saw retarded words like "toxic" being used but cancer research is actually a good cause. It's just retarded why they are doing it. Good for them, I hope those morons donate much more to cancer research while crying about neglect from a game developer.

Angeljuice610d ago

But what if the charity spends your money differently to how you expected? Will you harass and attack the charity workers and demand your money back?

pasta_spice610d ago

Uh...the Gone Home devs raised 15k for a charity that provides shelter and health services for homeless people. It also provides help services for LGBT teens and young adults, since they have some of the highest rates of homelessness, depression and victims of violence in any group.

Maybe try actually reading an article before providing snarky commentary on it.

opinionated610d ago (Edited 610d ago )

"It also provides help services for LGBT teens and young adults, since they have some of the highest rates of homelessness, depression and victims of violence in any group."

Lmao! What a fucking joke. Where, in Iran? Or do you mean San Francisco? High homelessness in the city with the highest rent control in the nation? Who knew? There is literally no where in the country more expensive to live than San Fran. Move lmao.. A "group" that is 1.6% of the population doesn't have the highest rate of anything. Your statistics are made up garbage.

pasta_spice609d ago (Edited 609d ago )

@Opinionated: I don't know why I'm bothering to feed the troll here. Especially when it doesn't take too much brain power to figure out why gay teens might have a higher rate of being kicked out of home than straight ones. Or why the average teen or young adult generally can't afford to move to a different city/town, let alone one who is homeless and likely has no access to money/job/connections/etc.

But you want peer-reviewed statistics? Okay, here you go: ("Of the 1.6 million homeless American youth, between 20 and 40% identify as LGBT.") (A 2012 study by Durso and Gates found that LGBT individuals made up 30-40% of the homeless youth population.") ("While LGBT teens make up 5-7% of the overall youth population, LGBT youth make up up to 30% of total homeless youth." ("Research suggests that roughly one in four LGBT youth who comes out to his or her parents is told to leave home.")

You can't just sweep those statistics under the rug and call them "made up garbage." You're the one who said that charity money should go to starving kids. Now you're complaining that it isn't going to the 'right' starving kids? Make up your mind.

opinionated609d ago (Edited 609d ago )

"gay and lesbian task force" lol. Peer reviewed.. I call bogus but I'll play along with your stats because they still prove you wrong. 20% of homeless youth is not the "highest rate of any group" and that's assuming all 20% self indentify as the LBGT hivemind where their sexuality is the very existence of their being. That's nowhere even close to homeless veterans for example which is also a disgrace.

Anyone can afford to leave San Francisco or LA. Those 2 cities make up 21% of the total homeless youth in America. They can't afford to leave? They can't afford to stay either, they're homeless... At least out here they stand a chance. People with jobs can't afford to live there, that's why everyone is moving to Texas. Gone home devs raises 15k, that's one months rent for 3 kids. Great fucking charity lol.

I'm all for ending homelessness in general, I don't care about age, sex, sexuality or anything else but let's be smart about it. They have been attacking homelessness for years since the war on poverty started. They have dumped billions of dollars into this and it's only getting worse. No amount of charity or government funding is going to be enough for these kids to live in San Francisco, LA, NY, period. Let's get realistic.
