The possibilities of free game upgrades via patches makes me even more giddy than I already am! BASE BUILDING!
It's been a long time since I have been eager to get through a days work as quickly as possible so I can go home and spend every waking moment of free time playing a game. Not even U4 had this effect as strongly as NMS does for me. There is just so much I want to do in the game, but there never seems to be enough time. Hours fly by like nothing.
Good for you
For those of us with a yearning for the unknown, especially in the realm of space and ultimately the future of our species as we know it. It, being exploring what's beyond what is terrestrial to our understanding, this experiment is on another level, imo. I have high hopes that this mindset is exactly what Sean and his team are ultimately aiming for and it gives me the chills thinking of what may still come with future updates based on what base they have already created. Very exciting stuff. This spark of imagination may just ignite a flame that this genre desperately needs.. Been exploring alien planets for hours with my son now and we're having a blast. What other way this could be a reality is unimaginable and that's why I'll be gaming for the rest of my days. Great step in the right direction. Big Thank you to Hello Games!
I'm just glad I could get it out of my bank statement. I asked for a refund from Steam after an hour
Good story bro.
Killing zombies is much more fun for you, we understand.
I don't like zombie stuff, but ok
Oddly enough, the game reminds me of Destiny, there's not much to do, but I find myself addicted to the gameplay.
It does have a hefty destiny vibe to it for me as well, and it also seems to have the same addictive grip. I had to try pretty dang hard to break my destiny addiction, I would have liked to keep playing but the game just has FAR to much emphasis on multiplayer activities. And all the best gear and loot was permanently locked away from lone wolf players like me. I hated not being able to get all the badass weapons and gear because I didn't want to do the raids, nor did I have the time. NMS however is a 100% single player experience, but at the same time you dont feel like you are alone playing in the universe. I've already encountered another system that a player discovered. Although I think they have the same path to center as me, as they are discovering all the systems ahead of me. Kind of annoying. As now I can't follow that path if I want fresh discoveries. So I have to hit systems around that path, which is not the most convinent thing to do.
Me either and unlike so many I guess, I love this damn game.
Even the extremists can't get it out of their heads and keep downplaying it.
