O H . MY. G O D...........


It was..... amazing. I don't know if it was the atmosphere, the music, or the dank...but it was the most beautiful sight my gaze had ever come upon in a video game. I actually felt a tear actually silently fall down my cheek. I was....home. That night I walked, explored, and quested to my hearts content. Eventually, while relaxing to the beautiful music, I slowly drifted off to sleep...I awoke the next morning feeling more refreshing and at peace with the world than I ever have in my entire life. For the next six months I did nothing but wake and bake and immediately head into the spellbinding world of no mans sky. That was how the majority of 2016 was spent for me and I don't for a second regret it. I implore anyone reading this who hasn't picked up this wonderful game, please, drive to your local Gamestop and pick a copy of this amazing journey today.

Is it bad that I thought the joke of the picture was that he took that screenshot and color shifted it to red and then added the No Man's Sky UI over it.

My kids are 6&7, girl and boy. They've been taking turns playing all day today. We created their own PS4 accounts and each has their own little world to explore. They love this game.

My husband is complaining that he bought another space game for him to enjoy alone and his whole family has taken over his game. We are all taking turns and having a lot of fun.

I think it's supposed to be something that people who are easily blown away by sheer spectacle get into or something. It's cool being on a moon and seeing half the sky is your planet but so far doing stuff is meh.

Does "uploading" the discoveries even do something on the internet. A lot of this I just don't understand. I found a space palm tree that looks like something you would see on the Toy World map of Transport Tycoon.

Is the whole game really orange or red looking? Or just these screenshots

I found some other places with different colors. The real boring part is that so far every planet is kinda just a handful of modifiers thrown onto a homogeneous gigantic sphere where every 50 square miles or whatever might as well be the same as every 50 square miles. They don't even have biomes or anything. I didn't expect much more from it so it isn't really disappointing but it does make the posts about the game turning grown men cold and distant to their wives and children a lot cooler.

I wonder if some of the gender things are supposed to be cheeky since they don't seem to do anything else and besides feeding them so you see a little smily face you don't really do anything with the animals like breed them or whatever. If the game somehow made Vectorized Gender or Prime Gender meaningful it'd be cool. But I think their just poking fun at the LGBTQUIA community.

fair enougfh im not defending survival game mechanics but idk what people expected

Well not that every one of these games has to come back to minecraft and even if you think minecraft is stupid it's still one of the only games that comes close to getting all those mechanics right. Feeding yourself which is essentially what life support charge is, in minecraft is a lot more dynamic and depending how heavily modded you play it, can eventually be trivialized and automated appropriately. Heck almost everything in this game was done better by minecraft. Planets are just biomes but from what I can tell it's not like Minecraft where you get the thrill of discovering that a particular biome has a really sweet thing in it since you're guaranteed several million square miles of evenly distributed resources and Events or whatever, and it doesn't take 10 minutes to get to the next biome. Unless I haven't gotten to some part with epic insane monsters you have to fight who do more than run at you in a straight line or robots that arent brain dead drones, even the combat is better, for all the customization you can do to your guns and crap.

Surviving in this for me for 5 hours has been trivial and boring at best and just annoying at worst. Like what happens when you get out of your ship and its 500 degrees celsius on the planet. You just leave and even if you upgrade your Life Support a billion times you'll probably be in another galaxy and by odds alone you'll be next to a planet with all the same poo poo function-wise anyway.

The biggest thing that blows my mind is that you can probably 100% a planet without exploring more than a few hundred miles around where you landed on it except for like waypoints which would just be a matter of flying to whatever one you're missing I guess. It's a shame really.

Is it supposed to be like, you play the game because the point of the game is to make you play more. Overwatch the only things like that is the leveling up. So I don't know. Sorry...

at the end of Arthur C Clarke's "The City and the Stars" the protagonist takes off into space to see if there's anything there, and he spends like two chapters frantically searching all the planets near the center of the universe for any signs of life, only to find them full of weird random patterns and without any seeming purpose, and eventually he gives up in defeat and that's basically the end of the book. What I'm saying is that No Mans Sky is an avant-garde piece aobut the meaningless search for fulfilment in a random godless universe and is basically an adaptation of The City and the stars. that's cool. peace

Well, that is somewhat cool but it doesn't make for a very fun game my man.

Thank G*d, I mean, I am blessed, JUST BLESSED that I was not able to post on these forums for 30 days because it just built my hype up for this game more and more until I nearly squeed with joy all over my Gamestop (thank you Kevin DerCole, the DFM of the 8 gamestops in my area for hosting a midnight NMS event at my local GS, I sent you a personal thank you card in the mail you should be getting soon.) during our midnight release party. The first 10 hours that night I was overcome with... whats the word... well lets just say no human word for the emotion I felt exists yet. I sat there on the couch, exploring planet after planet, getting to name all the plants and animals, it gave me the same experfience that naming my 6 House Cats (Catte, POS, Stebe, Timb, Computer, and finally the runt of the little Anroid) did. I cannot begin to express the amount of gratitude I have for Hello Games, and Sean Murry. Thank you Sir, you have not just my 5s, you have my golden manbabies as well. Keep reaching for the stars folks, there are 17,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 out there to see and explore.
