‘Next-gen’ should be about more than just graphics, and No Man’s Sky appears to be the first game of this generation to understand that.
Very excited for this game!!!
First ‘Real’ Next-Gen Indie Game. Fixed. But yeah, so far it looks incredibly impressive.
I think the title was fine the way it was.. Indie or not, it's doing something new and 'next gen'. Its not just the same familiar format with updated graphics. So to say its the first 'Real' next-gen game is completely accurate regardless of studio/developer imo.
Even though this game looks amazing, Killzone or infamous second son are the first next Gen console games.
Why Killzone? It didn't do anything exciting outside of nice visuals.
^ Agreed, the owl was a cool new idea for a first person shooter. Killzone SF was a fun game, but lacked good story. Which is ironically what many people use as the downside of it, then many claim story isn't important for games on other articles.
come on really... the Owel made killzone next gen? you telling me you think the Owel could not have been done on the ps3? Killzone was cool and definitely has some of the best next gen visuals but outside of that, just like nearly every other "next gen" game so far, it was not doing much else. If we take the visual aspect out of "next gen" I don't think there is much any game has done so far. Games that truly strike me as next gen Wither3 and this game.
There's No Man's Sky and then they're gonna release a gimped PS4 version of Minecraft saying it's because of save file size excuse. I call BS and blame parity clause from MS.
"Why No Man’s Sky is the First ‘Real’ Next-Gen Game" It's not even out yet, how can they even claim it to be "the first" in any regard anyways?
The title is a slap to the face to a lot of good games that have come out or coming out soon. We have seen very little of this game and we should be a bit more tame or I think a lot of you will be disappointed. Listening to the dev reminds me a lot of Peter Molyneux. Great ideas, but lets see how it is implemented.
"The first" is not necessarily a reference to when it comes out. It is probably the first game that meets his criteria for being "next gen". Can't wait to try this out! I am worried it won't feature enough meaningful gameplay!
I'd give it to Driveclub, I'm not the biggest racing fan but the level of detail that game is going to is simply insane.
Killzone & Second Son were about as Last gen and generic as it gets, aside from the visuals. No Man's Sky...the idea...the concept...is Next gen, and I hope they can pull it off.
I'm excited for this game like many others. Something different, although these indies have been that way too
Can't wait to fly my huge bratwurst shaped spaceship, into your planets giant alien beaver hole.
I thought Geoff Peterson favored men not the ladies. In fact, I'm sure of it. You're no Geoff Peterson.
I never said which hole or what sex of beaver. Here Come Tha Playas! Ass-Mode.
I REALLY hate the term, it's just so damn shallow. Actually the first "Next Gen Game"s were the ones the consoles launch with. A new gen doesn't mean every game from then on has to be drastically different, i really wish more people would just talk about fun. Seriously when was the last time anything about gaming was about fun and not about resolutions, framerates, map size, texture detail, bleeding edge tech etc. etc. Seriously how about we evaluate what makes games fun, lets pick about the aspects that make a game satisfying like risk vs reward, or how about clever level design, seriously just sick of the super shallow view the masses have on games, makes me ashamed to be part of the gaming community sometimes. And yes, No Man's Sky looks like the game of my dreams, day 1 for me
Isn't that what makes No mans sky so special. The reason we end up talking about resolution and frame rate so much is because so far that is all "next gen" power has really been used for. So far it's basically been the same old games from last gen just with better resolution and frame rate.. so what else is there to talk about? We all want to play fun games. the other day I had loads of fun playing an arcade MK2. It was awesome! No mans sky is not the best looking game and up till now I don't think I have really heard people talking a lot about it's frame rate or resolution because it's actually the gameplay that is pushing the next gen part.. .not it's graphics. I think we all want more of that.
From reading the article next gen for the writer means getting lost in a vast world.....
You mean current gen :)
Yep your correct.
This kind of statement cracks me up. No Mans Sky looks good so far but I wouldn't crown it king yet. For all we know it could completely suck.
How do you even define "next gen". And also, it's current gen.
We have not even seen much about "No Man's Sky" yet. Maybe the game turns to be shallow, repetitive, etc. While waiting how No Man's Sky turns to be, you could try: http://en.wikipedia.org/wik...
True, alright to get excited. Yet we know next to nothing about how the game will play out.
Should be: Why Dead Rising 3 is the First 'real' next gen game
There is a gigantic pile of great games of the past that could have been released on a before-gen console with downgraded graphics. As for No Man's Sky, I'm pretty sure it could have been released on PS3.
I envy ps4 for having no mans sky
The first Current Gen games aren't coming before next year, and what they're releasing right now is just filler.
No Man's Sky is the most ambitious, creative, imaginative, and visually immersive game to be announced for a next generation console to date. Hopefully it will live up to my expectations and I have a very good feeling that it will.
nice creative, imaginative, and visually immersive game to be announced . http://www.doesprotestoster...
People are excited for a game we know almost nothing about? I don't remember a single time that the final product wasn't disappointing when this kind of situation happened.
We know next to nothing about how it will play. It has spaceships and planets, there is wildlife, that's all we know. We don't know how the gameplay works, what the objective is, how players interact, if there are crafting elements, etc. I think a lot of next gen gaming will rely upon or encourage emergent gameplay, or rather creating platforms that allow for that. Letting players do what they want until they come up with their own game, essentially. It's the big frontier in gaming at the moment, taking off the training wheels and removing the guide rails and just letting players do whatever hey want for once. No Man's Sky seems to be heading in that direction but there's really not enough information to know if it will succeed in that regard. It could have a tonne of procedurally generated content and nothing to do with it all, for all we know. It could wind up being a nice tech demo more than anything else. From the gameplay I've seen, that's all that can be gleaned from it.
In the game you're trying to travel to the center of the universe. Though the devs aren't going to push you to it in a linear fashion they have said that "sinetuing" will happen. They're being very tight lipped about it all.
So glad this game is not on the Xbox one. It would be massively downgraded is it was.
