Former Sony Computer Entertainment Europe Strategic Content Director Shahid Kamal Ahmad was one of the men who saw with his own eyes the ins and outs of the development of Hello Games’ No Man’s Sky.
The release of the game proved quite polarizing, with many loving it for what it did offer, and others that expected more, and violently criticized the development team for what the game did not offer. Apparently, today Ahmad had enough, and expressed a rather clear-cut opinion on Twitter, also mentioning that the update plan for the game was already determined in 2013.
Let me get this straight. He told him his update plan in 2013...BUT all those promises in countless interviews of features NOT in the game (and you can't beat around the bush, it's a long f***** list) aren't in it. So how can he stick to his guns on the supposed update plan yet can't with the actual bloody game huh?
Yet you wonder why people are mad Shahid
People seem to think those who are mad are pulling things from thin air and are making stuff up but if there is one fiasco where gamers have a massive right to be angry for legit reasons this is it.
Blah blah blah is what I read. We ain't stupid, were sick of broken, unfinished games. Not our fault they over promised and charged a full $60.
If this plan was in place in 2013, then it was communicated very badly. So much drama could have been avoided by explaining it.
I somehow doubt it's the case though.
as shit as the last few month of silence have been, i'm so glad they didn't take our money and run. that's what I thought had happened. I was wrong and this update is sweet. I've actually been able to get back on with playing it now, enjoying it too :D
There's barely anything to defend. I'm just glad that Hello Games and Murray have started to patch the game and bring stuff to make the game better. I bought the game, enjoyed it, then forgot about it. As disappointing as the game is, it is still far from my worst purchase list *Cough* Destiny *Cough* $90 edition *cough*
So I'll just wait and see what the developers can do to bring me back. Still better than just giving up and do nothing.
