How about making the universe more interesting and alive with things to do rather then endlessly crafting and refilling your hazard suit and mining tools with power? You devs are making the game boring and monotonous because we have to concentrate on surviving rather then exploring and actually enjoying the game.

And how about mouse support in the Galactic map? The controller ported bullshit trying and maneuver around from system to system is so fucking annoying.

I've spent over 12 hours just on the 3 planets in my starting system. (31 exo slots now and saving up for a 2.1 mill ship before I warp out).
It is a survival game from the get go. Even with the 4 videos they showed you pretty much everything that could be done. Mine, Survive, Fight and Trade.

Hi Elf, I dont mind trying to survive, its just they have your power running out way to fast or having always screwing with your equipment and caring for it a bit to much for my liking. When devs do this, its puts far to much emphasis on micromanaging rather then playing the game end enjoying it. This is the aspect of the game I dont care for.

It seems like every 10 mins I have to re-power my Suit. kind of lame. it would be so bad if this only happened like once per hour of even 30 to 45 mins. but not every 10 mins.

Every survival game is about micro managing at the start. Any type of MMO, or say Diablo, etc. You start off with little of nothing and work your way up from there. Look at the upgrades, they make it so you micromanage less and less, but you aren't going to get everything within 5 hours of playing the game.

So i get a new ship, do I really need all the damage and defense upgrades? Not really at the start of the game, so get rid of them and get upgrades that make the ship fly longer. Do I need all the combat upgrades in my multi-tool? No get rid of them so I can get upgrades to scan further and mine more stuff faster.

I do get what your saying (as launch thrusters annoy the hell out of me using 25% fuel each time), but the trade off is there is no actual fuel to fly the ship around and from planetside to orbit.

Taking a break after a 4 hour session. Found this awesome ship with a shitload of guns on it crashed on a planet. Then I found this huge spaceport where one of the guys from Daft Punk asked me how smart my race was...

I get if you don't like to explore, you won't like this game. But if the idea of what's over the next hill or what's on the next planet excites you, it's a blast. I explore planets, I name some ferret looking thing a Space Weasel, I meet weird aliens, I learn their language, I make shitloads of money, then I take the the stars and head to the next destination...


That's what I'm getting out of it. I'm still on my second planet searching for more inventory slots.

I managed to jump about 10 times now without additional inventory slots. Eventually, when you get the AtlasPass you can stop at space stations and buy inventory slots... it kind of sucks that they use inventory as sort of main mid-game obje
ctive.

Use the orange beams on planets to "locate shelter". I got 3 suit upgrades for space on my first planet alone.

Ship wise, I just trade up ships.


Well I hated my 1st planet (got the ship fixed but almost froze to death at night). My 2nd planet is barren so it's really easy to find things on the horizion. I did use the pre-order ship and promptly got rid of it after I found a crashed ship. So I'm still in my starting system, on the 2nd planet and the only issue I have is Sentinels who tend to wander into my mining laser (little fuckers).

I'm enjoying it.

Had an issue with framerate, but set the cap at unlimited and as TB mentioned in his video I turned everything to low and then back to high and haven't had any major issues except when flying along the surface for long perios of time the game will studder for a second to load up more terrain.

Only on my 2nd planet (barren, no animals, and no hyperdrive yet) and I've spent about 5 hours just looking for upgrades (inventory/ship/multi-tool).

I'm enjoying it. But make no mistake it's a mining game with spaceships.

I ps4 a lot of stuff any more. I like the pickup and go.

Plus, I've had a 3 day head start on you.


I have to admit I enjoy more games that I use my 360 controller for on my PC. So I get the big super reclining office chair, recline and put my feet up. Sadly this is how I'd destroyed 2 controllers playing (I finally got to Skelligrade Isles after loosing 3 saves) Witcher 3.

I don't understand how playing in the office chair using the controller for PC games has destroyed 2 controllers...

I have a few games that are my 'sit back and relax games'. Witcher 3, Rocket League and any of the Lego games which I play with a controller. 1st controller was a Gamestop brand 360 controller and the 2nd was a Afterglow 360 controller. I've worn them down even after replacement pads for the buttons.

And gay guy's don't watch porn, it's so easy to get laid we have no use for it

Holy shit that pool video is awesome - way better than a wave pool!

Also Rogue One: Fuck yes!


So I rewatched The Force Awakens a few days ago and once I got over my 'dear lord this is A New Hope retread' mind frame it really isn't bad.
BUT, Force Awakens had a fucking EPIC final trailer and nowhere did the movie live up to it.

As for Rogue One.... the CGI looks a bit 'cheap/low', still no aliens shown, and everyone has a english accent (yeah I know it's typically considered the Imperial accent).

"Ignore user" is the best thing that ever happened to Blues News.

Said most Bluesnews users about Cutter the troll.

If Cutter was the worst troll EVER on Blue's do you think we'd even have an ignore user option?

Oh you silly young'ins you have no idea.

Also, loled at the developer giving Elon Musk a free game key just cos he tweeted that he wanted to try the game out. Hey douchebag, how bout handing out game keys to people who actually can't afford to buy your game instead of a multi-billionaire mogul?

You know they're friends and Musk gave him a tour of SpaceX, right?

Honestly, I'm not sure why I bother replying any more...

Put that truth and facts shit away nin. This here be the internet and regards of how right you aren't, your still right.

Working for Amazon (was raised by my mom and sister who are both bipolar alpha females, which explains why I'm gay ). I work at what is considered the post office of our Hub at CVG. Started out part te 5 days a week to see how I'll enjoy it and after 90 days can go full time.
I have read the horror stories especially last year, but I have to say so far Amazon takes good care of their employees. But this is no place for lazy people or slackers. They expect you to be self reliant (but always safe), ask questions and set your goals high, because if you work you can succeed quickly within Amazon. I finally broke a sweat today unloading a semi trailer trying to finish up a 3rd one before the end of the day
There are roughly 12 jobs in the warehouse and ya do the morning meeting/stretches and go work where you want to. It's very different from what I'm use to, but with my ADD and being an asshole work-a-holic it's actually a good fit. Worst problem of my day is all the damn 5-6pm traffic during the drive home.
