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

We’ve brought a new QA team on board today (larger than the entire Hello Games team!).

I thought it was traditional to QA a product *before* release!

This will complement the existing Sony QA team.

I think the idea was that they did the best they could with the existing QA team but now that they have money coming in from sales they can afford a bigger QA team to iron out all the issues and focus on more content.

I don't know why all the negativity towards this game. It's not like these guys took hundreds of millions of crowd funded money to make this game.
It's an indie dev, and I think they could be pretty proud to what they have achieved.
The price could be a little lower on the game, but I am sure there will be sales and such and I'll grab this eventually.

Watched an hour or so of NMS on a good Twitch feed and it was pretty much what I thought it'd be. It's definitely on my list to pick up - the $20 or under list.
If you don't mind seeing every planet in the game named dickwad#1 dickwad#2 and all the creatures are puke1, puke2, etc.
I guess the selling point to have people pre purchase is that your name or gamertag will be tagged to every planet and life form you discover. It's a good way to motivate people to explore, unfortunately I don't know if people will stick around after the novelty wears off.

Dunno if this gameplay has been posted...

https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=U4OChfGvYsA

Looks like it's been removed, whatever it was

Sky of The..." This video is no longer available due to a copyright claim by SIEA.

That was fast. That was some guy playing No Man's Content. He went around drilling for minerals in order to teleport them to his ship in order to repair his broken systems and his suit. The whole thing has a "Corpse of Discovery" kind of feel to it, with Minecraft in it.

He found some horribly ugly dog, and the dog actually found him a health... potion. He wanted to take the dog with him, but the game doesn't let you.

He identified a bunch of plants and animals and got an achievement of some kind as well, with an epic widescreen transition. "Survived 10 sols" or something.

All the plants and stuff have nonsensical names of course.

A spaceship flew by in the sky. The soundscape in this game is very atmospheric and pronounced.
Sounds like you're talking about this gameplay

A bargain at twice the price.

I bought 3, 2 for sli and one for the PhysX.
Tis truly the modern age of PC gaming.
Ready to play some Farmville with the Oculus Rift !

But I thought it was sp only on PC and split screen only on console?

This would indicate that I can play with a buddy, on PC, against bots.

Can anyone confirm?
Unless they have changed something recently split screen is only available on the consoles, not on the PC.

The author of that article would probably find installing games onto the xbox hard drive extremely difficult as well.
Better stick with mobile games.

I do agree Elite makes long range travel boring. I'm not a big fan of their supercruise implementation.
and long range travel in No Man's Sky will not be boring?
I am not a huge fan of the long range trade runs in Elite either but there aren't too many space games that makes that task don't feel like a chore.
In EVE Online you can literally watch TV while you do long distance trade runs in high sec areas.

It will be interesting to see what NMS has to offer in terms of "content" and fun factor.
From the videos they've showed so far, I am not convinced I'd be entertained beyond the first 2 hrs

It all sounds good on paper.
We'll see how well it's executed.
The last F1 game was garbage on the PC.

My plan is the name the first planet I land on Cutter in honor of its unruly and harsh landscape.

You can name all the creatures stuff like "Wire Fraud" and "Class Action Lawsuit" and other good Cutter catchphrases.

Indeed. Florp is a good name for a fish.

Those who purchased this game get a free upgrade to the free to play version of the game. But only for a limited time, after that a premium will be charged for the upgrade!
Those that purchased the Season Pass, well those people get the real deal, the full treatment. They get a brand spanking new shiny super duper awesome "XxX Founder Status XxX" premium forum badge
