I bought both :)
Digital and physical limited edition on ps4
digital on pc
I also happen to be a big 65dos fan, so getting a new album from them is a bonus, have the limited vinyl/cd pre-ordered from lacedrecords. I'm also Irish so Sean Murray is my national hero.
And despite all that, I'm not overhyped. I just know this is the kind of game I've always wanted since I was but a boy, ...
Amazing, wheres this gif from? I havent seen it. I also have yet to dissect the last two trailers XD Or is this from the recent nucl-ai talk by the former ND guy? I missed out on that last night :(
There's still a lot of misinformation in these answers or it's lacking in some decent explanations.
For example, in regards to meeting other players, it's worth mentioning that your chances of meeting other people will increase as you approach the centre.
The game has not been in development for 6 years, towards the end of JD2's development, sean started working on it in secret, that puts it at around 2012. However, the game as a concept, ...
WHY NO IRISH DATES 65DOS?! :( I've seen you on our tiny island a few times in the last 10 years, did we do something wrong? Did Sean warn you we're all feckless drunks?!
I got a nomanssky Atlas tattoo yesterday... Do they own my arm now? Am I gonna get sued by Hello Games!?
I better just lop that limb off, just in case.
I'm with you on that one. Nice to meet someone who understands the art of story telling outside of the executive boardroom formula that saturates the market :)
I think if they do make a sequel, it would have to exist within the same universe, as it's ripe for story potential, but ellie or joel should not be the focus, in a perfect world I'd rather they didn't appear at all. But the story would have to be on par with the original to...
No Math Sky? I'll see myself to the door... *sad charlie brown music*
I've already paid for my digital copy and my physical collectors edition (i havent bought one of those since halo 2), getting my atlas tattoo on wednesday. Waited my entire life for a game that lets me explore planets with a gorgeous aesthetic like this (not a fan of realism). This game was almost custom made by me, and by one of my fellow irishmen too, WITH a band I've liked for a long time now... Stars have aligned. I am calvin daydreaming he is spaceman spiff, its all i've ever...
Troll Power Level is over 9000 on this one.
Only about 100 more of these articles to go until we can escape the confines of our physical universe and get away from all this nonsense and havea good ol laugh at all this clickbait nonsense.
There are no assets. There are no models. No textures. No nothing. Just algorithms. Models, textures etc are all generated from Super Shapes (google it). The engines code only takes up 16mb. The majority of that 6gb is audio sounds.
If you still dont understand it and you think its worrying, then maybe do a little more reasearch, watch some vids where sean explains why the code is only 16mb and how it generates models and textures from super shapes. I see too many people m...
@cia_boss you obviously don't understand anything about coding, maths or how this game works, at all, do you? The actual universe is only 16mb in size. The bulk of that 6gb is audio files.
If you think 6gb means the game is cheap, then I say you need to educate yourself, sir.
Looking at a number and deducing that makes the game cheap, is just as moronic and idiotic as flat earthers demanding astro-physicists to "show them the curvature". It...
YAAAY, you get it :) Sean stated bout 2 years ago the game would only be 16mb if they didn't have to include audio files XD
And you agree with my sentiment that god is a sexy bearded man from waterford. Never followed sports or anything, so i've never had anyone to be proud of from my little island. Then Sean Murray came along and thought me all about pride :) (ok obviously graham linehan and garth ennis and dylan moran make me proud but, they aren't god, are t...
Theyve talked about adding things to it later, via free dlc.
What those things might be remains to be seen, but a building mode and land vehicles seem to be popular theories.
You don't need plus to see other peoples discoveries or upload your own. You only need plus to see other players, which, is going to be so rare you may never even see another player (unless you hang out at the center of the galaxy long enough) so plus is not needed to fully enjoy.
Unless that info has changed in the last year or two?
2013 called... They miss you. Boy will they be shocked to hear you learned nothing from your trip to 2016.
The game is technically single player, since the chances of bumping in to someone are so slim (those chances will increase naturally, as you approach the centre and the radius gets smaller). You don't need plus to upload your discoveries.
The way MP works is, you have a small bubble around you taht acts as a lobby, it will check if someones near you or you are near someone and connect your lobbies.
You can upload information wi...
There are no textures. Or anything of that nature, no models exist on disc. EVERYTHING is created through procedural algorithms, that includes colours and textures, by way of super shapes. Most of that 6gb is audio, 16mb of it is the code that creates the universe.
The game has no textures. No models. No nothing. It just has 16mb of engine code. The majority of that 6gb is the audio tracks from 65daysofstatic that will be fed into a generative music engine and the odd video or two.
Sean Murray stated bout 2 years ago, originally the engine could have fit on a floppy disc. However the reason its jumped to 6 gbs is because things like audio files and intro videos etc take up so much data. The games code is only 16mb.
