No Man's Sky looks a lot different now than it did when it was first announced.
Agreed. Especially with the animal part. I have seen just some straight up ugly looking creatures and it's because they look like they have been slapped together randomly by the game pulling from different files that contains alien body parts. Then they all just awkwardly run around all jerky because their anatomy and physiology are so off. Truly some hilarious moments, I feel like God and putting them out of their misery is the best option for them. The universe is truly a cruel place :(
I've seen some ugly creatures, and I've seen some awesome creatures. Its only some of the more bizarre skeletal structures that I've seen that cause problems with the animation, but for the most part they're pretty solid.
It's the same with people on earth, isn't it?!
I have seen some really screwed up ones but i've also seen some really cool ones, Like T-rex with 6 legs it's Banaynay.
Random creatures gives so much potential for alarmingly stupid looking animals.. :D Ive seen some awesome ones as well though so i dunno. They're around.
You creeped out by the human-faced, shaved cow alien with chicken feet?
Nope, not creeped out! Drumsticks and steak all rolled into one creature! Awesome, let's fire up the BBQ!
There are tons of planets in the Universe, the pre release trailer ones may still be one of them. Just saying...
This "article" was written much to soon...
Yeah, this is a little silly. I've seen planets that were gorgeous already, with creatures that look normal-ish, and yes also creatures that look really, really weird. Some of these might be true, but sjeesh, it kinda feels like now suddenly people are frame skipping all the trailers to see if there was stuff that is not in the game and pick at Sean's every word and trying to make it sound he sold us a pack of lies. I knew we could see good looking and barren planets and everything in between, same for the animals. Did kinda hope for more variation in the flora department tho, but still it creates some amazing results too. If you haven't seen normal looking creatures and/or beautiful planets you haven't really played it. And did anyone expect giant space battles in an exploration game? I didn't, in fact, even tho the shooting stuff isn't all that extensive it's more than I expected after watching every single trailer and demo since first announcement... It's weird tho we don't see any crashed giant ships, then again I think we can chalk it up to that Hello Games wanted to do something bigger than they managed to do with such a small team and since they are very enthusiastic about the game I feel we will see many free additions in the future...
"And did anyone expect giant space battles in an exploration game?" Except Sean specifically showed off giant space battles, even said so while demonstrating these battles that there were different factions fighting and that you can pick a side and fight along with them. You claimed to have watched every demo and yet you missed that one? "If you haven't seen normal looking creatures and/or beautiful planets you haven't really played it." The problem is not many if at all have seen anything close to what was shown in the trailer. Why are we making excuses for this? Small team or not they showed or said something that isn't in the game. We shouldn't have to wait or expect future updates or DLC to play what was shown years ago.
Yes, he talked about it, but honestly it's not what stuck with me after all the videos and interviews and when I saw streams of the battling in space right before it released I felt it had more of it than I had expected. And as for non of the planets coming close, I feel you're wrong, I've seen really gorgeous ones, I give you the space battles stuff but not the looks of the planets, it looks fantastic at times... I still believe now that people in hindsight are trying to find every little thing he has said that they can't find in the game while I wonder how much they actually still retained in their own head and how much they had to look thru the videos and interviews to find things he said that aren't in the game. I really have to agree that with seeing lists of stuff that he mentioned in interviews and demos that aren't in the game and how he's saying it that something is wrong. For one I don't think Sean is the right person to do interviews and demos, I don't think he can handle that sorta thing very well. And second I think they had to put in way, way more time into getting the procedurally generated stuff to work well and to optimise the engine so it could even run on the PS4, because of those 2 things they didn't have all that much time to add in actual content and stuff to do, tho I do believe they are going to add a lot of it for free in future updates.
exactly. look at the trailers they released. the "life" of the game shown off in the trailers, isnt in the final product. it's WAYYYYY different from the trailers.....
I know, just this morning I was on some moon that had bright green things on the ground (not grass exactly), trees with brown leafs and clear blue water, little beaches and perfectly earth like blue sky, kept taking pictures of it!
Didn't watch the full thing yet, but 5m in and nothing but plant life... Definitely a pretty planet, but otherwise pretty boring.
That's because you never found an eden planet, Hello say it themselves that 60 percent of planets are standard, 12 are eden planets and the rest are civilization planets
i really dislike that you cannot appreciate the distance, also while flying on the ship you cannot see any wild life
How dare this procedurally generated game not match every trailer that was shown.
Well the point is he's been playing a week and hasn't seen any of the stuff shown in the trailers, sure maybe it's all somewhere out there but WHO wants weeks of boring game play at the off chance you'll eventually see the really cool stuff that was advertised?...and I don't mean graphics or environmental downgrade, a game this big it's kind of expected. I think the game still has a lot of potential= DLC, but if nothing else because future development can build upon the foundation here but we should all be concerned when any game doesn't ship with significant content differences than what was advertised.
well the question is, is that person just sticking with Yellow Star Systems? or are they branching away from the set "paths" to wither center or atlas. becuase thats where the pretty planets are. Yellow systaems tend to be barren systems. heck i spent an entire day on a yellow system looking for a ship via transmission toweres, didnt find one, went through about 50 bypass chips. i jumnped to another system, and found 4 ships on my first planet In't not the game, just his position within the game.
i know eh? idiots all. must be xbox fanboys with nothing to play.... been almost a yr and all they have is Quantum fail.
Horseshit. None of those points were in the early trailers. The graphics didn't take a noticeable hit they were always cartoonish colors w mediocre textures. It's the way it was shown off. Did u even play it or did u watch somebody?
The bit about the asteroids is actually true. I found an asteroid made of iron i could blow a hole through and flew through...but yes there were many creatures begging me to end their lives. Spotted my first veloceraptor today though
You can try to sugar coat it all you want, but this game is a straight up failure. Yup.
