I've just watched Jaguar's video review and it seems like a pretty good game.
Especially after the mass 2015 was/is.
I may pick it up but not for $60

I don't know if any of you PS4 owners were aware but the PSN sub is going up by $10 on September 22.
Maybe it is time to stock up on some sub cards

I thought this demo was pretty impressive.
I would love to see some single player game stuff now too.

I'm intrigued by NMS, but I think they are clearly different types of games.
Yes they are. NMS is like ED light. More Arcade geared towards simple controls and super simple gameplay.
If ED is a $60 game NMS would be in the $20 range.
I think one of the single biggest issue this game has is it's price tag.

Checked out some gameplay of that Titanfall 2 technical test on youtube. Man it looks boring and graphically unimpressive.
They are also coming out with this game when Battlefield, and CoD comes out?
Best of luck.

Graphically it's very nice, but ugh that gameplay looks SO.EFFING.BORING.

I saw a video awhile back (maybe their e3 demo?) where the NPCs called out everything that needed to happen moments before you did it. "WE SHOULD REALLY GET INTO COVER!!!" "WE NEED TO TAKE THOSE GUYS OUT!!!!", etc etc...like, no shit? Yeah, that's kind of obvious...


That only happens if you pick Captain Obvious as your team mate.

I was actually thinking about picking it up, just to see what it's like, until I learned that the flight mechanics are gimped. Is that correct? I thought you could fly in space, seamlessly transition to a planet's atmosphere and fly around as you wish, or hover over the ground. Apparently there is now an autopilot that does some these things for you?

Every time I think we get a game where you have real seamless transitions between planets and space I get disappointed. I guess the first Elite games did it. Evochron does it.
And the only other game that does it is Rodina. In No Man's Sky it seems fake. Not the same fake as in Elite Dangerous, where you have different instances, but it seems like you don't have real control over it. Am I wrong?
I suggest you watch some youtube gameplay videos

Wonder if these drivers will make any difference for NMS performance.

In the introduction. these drivers provide an optimal experience for No Man’s Sky, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, Obduction, F1 2016, and the Open Beta for Paragon.
Yes I saw that, that's why I said I wonder if the driver will make any actual performance difference.

Nvidia likes to list a bunch of games in their driver release to get people excited but that doesn't always means those games will actually perform any better.

Pretty good Ars Technica review

A game so broken in its launch state that it even crashes while paused
Bottom line: Don't just wait for a sale; wait for a major overhaul.

You guys are overreacting and/or not reading.

PC hardware testing will come later in development.

This game is 2 months away from release. He did not mention anything about testing on the PC so not sure where you got that from.

If they are not at the stage of testing hardware on the PC where there are a ton more variables than on the consoles at this point, I am wondering if the PC version will be even in playable state at release.

Thankfully Origin has a refund policy, for the sake of anyone that buys this on release day

I think the no testing on the PC has a lot more to do with this:
PC players have proven in the past that they will dig out anything they can, and there's a risk that they could spoil some of our single player

I couldn't care less about this game.
They should just keep it on the consoles all together. Save themselves the trouble of insulting the pc gamers.
I don't know what kind of sales numbers they expect on the PC after comments like these. If this game bomb on the PC they will just blame the pirates or something.

Waiting for Astroneer,
Astroneer looks freakin awesome, however that game is pretty far out in terms of completion.

Hello, my name is RoboNerd and I admit I pre-ordered the PC No Man's Sky. I had never paid full price for a game before, and I had never-ever pre-ordered a game before. The game mocks me by just crashing right after posting the Hello Games screen. Oh sure, I read all the first day suggestions, and tried all those gymnastics, with no solution. So I've learned my lesson, I will never, never, never pre-order again. (hangs head in shame as he shuffles away from the podium) Paperbag

Did you get a refund?
Hopefully he got it from Steam, otherwise no refund
