From what I've read, one of the sections they're "getting rid of" has an install size of 5GB+ on your HDD, but only 0.3% of players bother with it.
So they're removing bad content that no one cares about and wastes space in your install, which is already 100GB-165GB.
they are getting to the point they have no choice it seems.

Edit: AAAAAAND then I see the post quoted below by ninemil, where there is graphical evidence that earning credits is now TIME GATED??

I beat it in 12 hours, then I guess I am supposed to play through this stupidass game yet again,over and over. Stay far away.

Huh, that's an interesting take for an Action-RPG. So, as far as comparing new release titles, better writing and dialogue than Andromeda?

I've tried numerous times to get a refund for NMS. The game is broken and not even remotely close to how Sean Murray pitched it.
My last attempt to plead with Valve for a refund goes as follows:
Beamer wrote on Aug 29, 2016, 08:05:A lot of the really heavy bugs don't kick in until the 30-40 hour mark, depending on how heavily you've allowed the game to guide you. Worth noting before you fire too much off at those invested heavily that reviewed negatively, and/or refunded.
The top rated review has 70 hours in. Man, 70 hours in 1 week for something you hate.
Beamer wrote on Aug 29, 2016, 08:00:Someone raised the exact same point earlier in the thread, and I offered a video that discusses everything in context to when the statements were given. Scroll down a bit. Murray was perpetuating misconceptions all the way up to release week, (and on several points, afterward as well.)
NMS seems to be the extreme example, but the video I keep see people floating is Sean Murray saying "yes" when asked if you can play with friends, but that video is from 2014, and the game has not been advertised as multiplayer.

Maybe not quite, but he has snatched the crown away from Molyneux. Molyneux took decades to accumulate his laundry list of lies and misinformation. This guy did it in very short order for a single game.
Quboid wrote on Aug 28, 2016, 23:57:Worth skimming through gaf's data-mining thread for a narrative on whether these were conceptual features, or ever actually deployed in code. The E3 demo, for example, appears to have been largely scripted, despite suggestions during the demonstration to the contrary. You might argue that the distribution files could have been tidied up before release, but that seems unlikely, given that there's unused stuff from 2008 in there...
Projects change in development, that's inevitable, but it should be their responsibility to have the correct objective facts out there. If they say there is multiplayer (which he did) and then they decide to cut multiplayer, they are knowingly leaving objectively incorrect information out there.
Beamer wrote on Aug 28, 2016, 21:19:And some are as recent as this spring/summer. Some of the direct communication from Murray on twitter was post-release. That's why I linked you Jim's video, (he researches, he's genuinely independent, he specifically noted the timeframe over which some of these interviews were given.)
Most videos people show to point out how they "lied" date back to 2014.
