The Alternate Reality Game that Hello Games have been playing with No Man’s Sky players for the past month looks to be finally coming to a climax as all dates point to July 21. Earlier this year ke…

can't wait, love this game and any reason to jump back into the game ill gladly take

Soulst0rmer34d ago (Edited 34d ago )

I like NMS a lot. No it's not perfect but it's something I can get lost in for hours

No Way33d ago

Why though? Doing what? I just cant get past that their isn't really anything "exciting" to find on the planets. Unless things have changed since I first played it.

inveni033d ago

Things HAVE changed, @No Way. But you still won't like it. If the call of seeing what's beyond each new horizon isn't enough to hook you, then you'll never find an exploration game you like. I recently put a bunch more hours into this game because of the Pathfinder update, and now I'm working on all of my Journey rankings. But this is after having taken about an 8-month break.

NohansenBoy33d ago (Edited 33d ago )

Have they gotten past every planet having very little differences and the random creature generator making this thing look like a rat pig while this other thing has the same rat head, but on a deer's body?

Also, has Sean went to prison for false advertising yet?

Goldby33d ago

@Nohansen

Has Sean gone to prison* not went.

and no because they weren't guilty of false advertisement.

thorstein33d ago

Sorry @Nohansenboy,

The liars were wrong about the game and the lawsuit come to nothing (as it should have.) Source: http://www.pcgamer.com/no-m...

But keep hating something you never intended to play.

Oh, and by all means, please base all of your future decisions on what other people say rather than experiencing something for yourself.

I can't believe the amount of blowback these guys are getting over a $60 game...

I mean could you imagine if, instead of selling us a $60 dollar game, Hello Games had decided to sell us a $500 console that is weaker yet more expensive than its competitor and decided to ACTUALLY LIE and say that the POWER OF THE CLOUD would make it 3-5 times stronger than it is? And 4 years down the road still have nothing to show for it? One can only imagine what would happen to these guys if they did that...

Meh... that's too much work. That would mean that one would have to actually change their entire perspective on the whole matter. And we know THAT won't happen. lol.

Anyways... Here's hoping that this announcement includes something about a VR mode. Because truth be told, I was so hoping that this game would be PSVR compatible. I can see myself easily spending some 100-200 hours exploring different planets in VR.

fans of this game must be a bunch of mindless drones with nothing better to do.

NohansenBoy33d ago (Edited 33d ago )

I won't berate anyone for supporting a conman, but surely supporting his activity isn't good for gaming at large right? What he did tells me that anyone with a major company backing them can get away with lying. Remember that he begged the person that got his copy early not to upload gameplay due to the fact that would expose the game as being a bland and repetitive space exploration game with no real goal when he promised so much more during interviews? Another reason I think Sean was crapping himself over that early copy was due to the review embargo.

I only care about defending my hobby from con artists like Sean Murray.

Exoil32d ago

@NohansenBoy: Don't mind Thorstein, Sean Murray could kill his family members and he'd still deny that Sean did anything wrong.

It's been proven so many times that they blatantly lied in interviews and in previews of the game leading up to the launch and the only thing these shills have to counter with is a tweet sent out a week before the game drops that it's not a multiplayer experience.

Sean Murray makes Peter Molyneux seem a pretty honest guy

Okay, time to shut it:
Stop Thinking Of No Man’s Sky As A Multiplayer Game

NO MAN'S SKY 10 JUN 2014
NO MAN'S SKY - THE STORY, GAMEPLAY, AND MULTIPLAYER EXPLAINED
http://www.ign.com/videos/2...

For those that don't want to follow the links:

Sean Murray explicitly said in 2014 that it would be "impossible" to sync all the players in an article entitled: "Stop Thinking Of No Man’s Sky As A Multiplayer Game"

"But that's okay for us because it will never happen. I guess the whole of the entire community could organize to go to one specific spot and then they would find that they weren't all there at the same time. That would be ridiculous. "

Ridiculous and impossible. Hmmm... that doesn't sound like "Yes, it's an MMO."

From 2015 IGN published this answer: "No Man's Sky isn't an MMO. Who or what you are is down to your own interpretation, rather than us giving you set guidelines on it in the way a character creator would. That's super important to us."

So. You can choose to admit that you were wrong and were (quite possibly) misled by some journalists, but you can't say the dev lied. It took me two minutes to find two sources that show the game isn't MP. And then, of course, there is the aforementioned Twitter account.

October 2rd 2015. Late Night with Stephen Colbert.

- The only way for you to know what you look like is for someone else to... you know see you.
- Can you run into other people, other players on the game?
- Yes, but the chances of that are incredibly rare, just because of the size of what we´re building

Sean Murray is lying through his teeth, how you still can't admit that is astonishing. Truly, it is

thorstein31d ago

Okay @Exoil

A very intelligent person once asked, how do you convince someone with evidence if they don't accept evidence.

But then you went and added even more evidence that it would be "incredibly rare" to run into another player.

So, you were wrong and now you are admitting it. Most people just say, "My bad, I hadn't heard that," or "My bad, I hadn't read that."

But adding more evidence certainly works. How that logically leads to "lying" is not logical.

I made the claim, I backed it up with evidence. You claimed there was nothing but a tweet but then added more evidence that the game isn't MP.

So, you either accept the evidence or you don't. I really don't care because I already have the game and I enjoyed it.

NohansenBoy30d ago

You know, I got a new phone recently. My old one broke on me, but I always told myself that my old phone was just fine, because it was mine and I paid $80 for it. It was a cheap Chinese phone I got, because it had 2GB of RAM, but I won't ramble about specs, I just got it since for the time 2GB of RAM at $80 was a great deal. It had issues that I chose to ignore after I couldn't return it anymore and I still forced myself to love that old piece of junk phone. The touch screen started having issues after the 30 day return policy expired. Dead pixels started showing up 6 months later. then the speaker or sound chip started giving out a few months after that.

Moral of the story? I only cared about that old phone, because I paid a good amount of money I won't get back since most of its issues didn't arise until getting my money back was too late. I do think people care more about something if they pay for it. Not saying it's buyers remorse kicking in, just something else.

I knew I won't be disappointed when I bought it last September.

Black0ut32d ago

I haven't tried it yet but I can't wait to on steam. Look pretty interesting imo and my judgment is on hold until then. There's waay too much hating these days in gaming tbh

jugo1431d ago

hahaha that was funny. Needed a good laugh today!

isarai31d ago

WOW! didnt expect my simple comment to turn into a sh!t flinging clusterf@#k. Look man, i've just alaways been the type to mindlessly explore just to see whats beyond the horizon, and something as simple as a really large overhang is enough to take as payoff for my travels and reason to keep going. Skyrim, minecraft, breath of the wild, xenoblade chronicles x, all were games i got primarily just to explore and gawk at the neat surroundings.

No mans sky is my perfect outlet for that. I like to piece together my own lore and wonder what heppened to the people who ancients who built the ruins, where did the sentinels come from? What am i and why am i unique? Am i related to the sentinels? I dont know, and i know the game right now isnt going to provide those answers, but history so old its lost to time makes me like the experience even more.

I never cared if it had online/mp or not, and i didnt care about "large scale space battles" i just wanted to wander around with an unpredictable promise and good potential to leave me awestruck. Potential i've witnessed realised first hand lots of times with planets of 600ft flying skyworms, and a barren planet home to seemingly a single giant spikey fish, or a planet flooded with 1ft flying dinosaurs. Is it 3very planet? No in fact it's only once every few solar systems but that just makes me enjoy it more when i do find the interesting things.

Ionno, i just enjoy wandering around till i find interesting things and this game scratches that itch like nothing else so far. Just sick of everyone emploring me to dislike this game as if im not allowed to like what it does offer.

Lets see if i finally jump in this game.

cleft533d ago (Edited 33d ago )

I'll say this to you and anyone else out there. This game has a lot of issues they needed to iron out. The developers have been put into this crazy situation where crazy people write down every little thing they say and use it in a reddit post to hang them the moment something they mention isn't in the game so they can't really communicate with their fanbase. Because if anything they say isnt directly in the game or gets delayed they are demonized as huge liars.

With that said, their actions have spoken louder than any words. These guys have knuckled down and constantly released update after update and have constantly work to improve and expand their game. When its all said and done I do fully think we will have everything that they originally wanted to add into the game. When they are done with all of these core updates I do see a FF14 situation where the game is so transformed that its night and day compared to the original release. So long as these guys stay dedicated to fixing and improving their game I do believe this will be the case.

gamer780433d ago

i don't know about you, what i was taught growing up if you make a commitment or a promise, you don't break it. if its out of your control, you need to apologize and make it right

XanderZane33d ago

No doubt, they will probably fix everything and get the game to where it was suppose to be at launch. For me, it's too little to late. The damage was already done. Same way I felt about DriveClub. Is the game better now? Yes, definitely. Do I care? Nope and still don't own the full version of the game. Too many lies and misinformation.

Exoil32d ago

@xanderzane: Except in Driveclub it was riddled with network problems at launch, not missing ton of content promised to be in the game by the developers prior to release. So you can't really compare the two. Unless you're talking about the shitty way Driveclub PS+ version was handled

CorndogBurglar32d ago

It wasn't a matter of people writing down every little thing they said. You are over-simplifying what happened.

They showed gameplay footage along with what they said. There is a very long list of things they said would be in the game that were missing at launch.

They pretty much admitted to it also when Sean Murray finally broke his silence and said he would no longer talk about features in the game until he was 100% sure they would make it into the game.

I'm not sure why people defend this. When even the head developer makes a comment like that, a comment that admits what they did, then its time to give up the fight.

I find top down RPG MMO's boring...sorta.... guess I speak for everyone on that :D oh wait......

andybock33d ago

Can't wait. Hope hello games vision gets closer. Loved the game from day one.

bluefox75533d ago

Regardless of how you feel about NMS, you can't deny that they've went above and beyond in trying to earn back people's trust. It would have been easy to just cut and run, but they've been working endlessly since release to make things right. I think it's commendable.

1nsomniac33d ago (Edited 33d ago )

Bullshit. They repeatedly told lies to sell their game. Then when customers realised it was lies & complained, they called us liars. Only when it was physically proven that they had lied repeatedly, they accepted it & apologised. Before that they had relentlessly continued to cover up their lies with even more bullshit. Then they ran into hiding until they realised that the public backlash was so massive that it completely destroyed their careers & chances of staying in the industry or in fact any job in the future.

They have no choice & have already made it very clear that they would completely ditch the game given the choice. Sean Murray & his team have even stated the fact.

Some people just don't have the simple common sense or intelligence to see what's in front of them & how very wrong that is. He's not doing it out of the kindness of his heart. He's a crook. He's only doing it because he's not got a choice!

You really have to be a very special kind of stupid to ignore what has happened in this situation.

Aenea33d ago

Care to show proof of the following:
- that they called consumers liars
- that it was 'physically' (really?) proven they lied repeatedly
- where they covered up their lies with more BS
- where they stated they want to ditch the game
- where it's said they have no other choice then to continue with it

Yes, they've said some things that they shouldn't have, mostly people fell over the multiplayer thing. Sean shouldn't have mentioned it at all when he wasn't sure they would be able to do so. Practically all the other things they said and showed are actually in the game. I was disappointed in the "big surprise" in the centre of the star system and also expected a bit more of the combat and the way you interact with the aliens since it doesn't matter one way or the other what you do or say.

People expected more tho, somehow, many also just can't seem to understand that you can't come across all the things on the first planet straight away.

They made a booboo, but what you're saying here is a huge exaggeration and contains more lies than they ever spouted!

SolidStateSnake33d ago

I guess you have to play the game first rather than spewing blatant lies. The game has it flaws, lots of it. But they're actually doing stuff to try and fix it.
