Internal improvements

It's is still the same boring mess now with the grainiest pop-upuiest vr ever on the ps4! I love watching the ai just run into whatever. It's still pisses me off I blasted money backing these hacks (they'll learn eventually, point is they were not learnt when they sold us on it. f- that poser bs) . Maybe if I have some of that delusional koolaide some peeps are drinking, I too can see things in this game to make it great.

Somehow after Beyond update, I enjoy reading any comments from people like you, who never move on from the past. It is fun because it show the fact that you actually don't know at all how is the experience of playing NMS right now. I hope you don't get into the Space Anomaly, or else you probably will be trolling in the chatbox and annoy everyone else.

Some people just want to complain about everything and just carry that whiny attitude with them everywhere. People like this show up in every games circle. Ubisoft with releasing Origins and Odyssey and it was either "this is not Assassin creed" or "Same old shit again" comments. Metro was no longer Metro because they left the tunnels etc etc.
Some people are just unhappy with everything and more often then not they appear to be unhappy about games that they were never going to play to start with.

My mate bought it at launch and I've been trying to get him to play for months. He finally downloaded it again a few week back and hasn't put it down. Said it's his new favourite game.
I've put another 90 hours in myself since beyond. Between all my save files I'm on about 500 hours. This game is awesome.

Welshy448d ago (Edited 448d ago )

You sound alot like a guy who clearly hasn't played since Next, let alone Beyond and just carries on the hate bandwagon. We all got burned at launch, but you need to get with the present, we can't hold it over them forever.

It shouldn't be forgotten how much of a let down the launch was, but my god have they busted ass over the past 2 years to make probably the biggest comeback we've ever seen in the industry, updating it to the point you could argue that it's surpassed the original promises.

The likes of EA could learn a thing or two from this tiny team. What they have done with like 6 people vs the disaster that is anthem with hundreds, if not thousands of people involved in it is something that should be respected. We don't need to forget the NMS launch, but with all their hard work they deserve our forgiveness to a degree.

Got back into this over the past month or so, and I gotta say I'm enjoying it. It's a time commitment, and definitely isn't a game with non-stop action, but within the game space, there is room for all genres. My only real question is with all these updates, is it worth just starting a brand new run, I have been experiencing a few glitches such as falling through the map when I exit my ship or having the bases and other objects load in a few feet off the ground. None are game-breaking, but definitely kills a bit of the emersion, here is hoping Hello Games continues their support of this title.

Kudos to them for trying something new and ambitious, I believe when all is said and done, that will be the most important thing learned here.

After10Ben448d ago (Edited 448d ago )

I'm having the same issue with building and objects appearing a few feet off of the ground from time to time; it's not game breaking, but it is a glitch in need of fixing. If you exit out and reload it seems to fix the issue. I started a new game and it's been pretty dang fun.

WorldGamer448d ago

That would suck if I have to start over again, I just got a new A class ship that I salvaged. I may just try to reach the center of the universe with the current glitches since they don't really seem to have huge effect. Glad I'm not the only one experiencing this.

After10Ben448d ago (Edited 448d ago )

I didn't mean you need to start a new game to fix the glitch, sorry if I wasn't clear. I meant that I just exit out of the game and reload to fix the glitch when buildings and objects appear to float a few feet above ground.

As far as starting a new game, I simply meant that after the beyond update I started a new game and was having fun.

If you just got an A class ship that you like I would stick with it :)

Cool started playing again when the beyond update launched and it's a big improvement since I stopped playing at launch.
