Sean Murray should be commended for being forthright and honest in his latest interview, he's only human after all.
Hmmm...not sure if serious..
Why don't u RTFI & tell me what u think

Do you know why this interview appears in print and not on video. Because you can tell when he's lying. He laughs when he lies, and the bigger the laugh the bigger the lie.

I'm a bit compfused. Didn't they just advertise the multiplayer bit last week? Then this week they're pulling it?

No, they're saying it won't be available on GOG for at least 6 months for some inexplicable reason. Sean Murray is just a enormous scumbag.

I don't think Sean Murray had anything to do with it. I know he's a fun punching bag but, you know, it's gonna have to end somewhere.

It's indefensible. Not only does Murray run a small indie studio, but he also works on NMS as a coder. The odds of him knowing a key feature of his product would not be available on GOG before it's release is astronomically high. He knew. He absolutely knew. And he said nothing to the millions of GOG customers. He knowingly sold the product on GOG with a crucial missing feature of Next. The guy is a bona fide flim-flam swindler.

After today NOBODY should believe anything from Sean Murray or Hello Games. This is quite literally the second time they lied to video game consumers. As the saying goes, "Lie to me once, shame on you. Lie to me twice, shame on ME!"

You lose, he's bringing in the Sean Murray tweets from 2016. Take cover man. Once a crusade has been started no apology will ever suffice.

Posting a tweet from 2016 isn't a "crusade." It's called evidence to support a point. The tweet shows a pattern of Sean Murray and Hello Game's Modus Operandi. Stop trying to turn my posts into something they're not.

Changhan Kim, CEO, PUBG Corp., explained that 2018 is the year for the company to lay down strong groundwork for the PUBG esports system, building a solid structure through ongoing investment and a philosophical commitment to advance its esports experience.

Is this guy for real? Not only did the boat leave the dock, it's half-way to Alaska.

I don't get it, why does the lack of DRM slow down the multiplayer development?

My understanding is HG had to implement Steam's API into NMS's code to make it work on Steam. They need to remove all that crap to make it DRM free, and then QC to ensure there are no blockers or glaring bugs.

So GoG sold something they likely knew wouldn't have all the features people were buying it for, and you're outraged, but you assign them absolutely no blame?

Stop trying to create innuendo where none exists. You're making yourself look obtuse.

First, I did not express "outrage" as you call it (I didn't even use an exclamation mark). Second, I said nothing about GOG. I cannot speak about what CDPR knew and when they knew it because that's not the point of my original post. I was explicitly talking about Hello Games and their business practices. They knowingly sold a product on GOG based on something that they knew would not be present and failed to inform the GOG customer base that this feature would not be available at purchase. They did the same thing at the initial launch. Sean Murray had to finally come clean.

How is it Chris Robert's gets a pass but Hello Games, who have busted their asses to get NMS in a state worthy of it's initial hype doesn't? I find no fault with HG whatsoever. They could've just dropped the whole game after the backlash and done another Joe Danger sequel. They didn't. They worked thru it and now we have a space combat survival sim that is very much worth buying. I can't be happy enough with NMS, I stuck with them the entire time and my loyalty has been rewarded many times over. This is a problem with GOG because they don't have a multiplayer infrastructure capable of supporting what NEXT does. I'm a little surprised they didn't think about this beforehand but maybe they did and had something in the works and it fell thru or didn't work as well as they wanted/needed. We don't know all the facts and yet many people are quick to condemn their actions as malevolent.

=-Rigs-=

Because Chris Roberts never lied about the state of his game. When SC was finally available to play, everyone knew it was Alpha, and no one was expecting a complete product.

Sure is, doesn't bode well for those who purchased GOG games and get left out in the cold like that.

Once again, Hello Games didn't come clean with the truth until AFTER the fact. How many copies were sold on GOG from the Next announcement?

Do you also blame GoG for this one?

Dude? Are you serious. I'm obviously blaming Hello Games and only Hello Games.

So low fat dairy is as bad as high fat dairy. Doesn't mean dairy is good for you.....

In any case I think it's funny how much of "dairy is good for you" articles we're seeing now that dairy consumption is declining. The young people are all about the plant milks, and rightly so, unless dairy dies soon, those young people won't reach retirement age before the planet goes mad max and waterworld at the same time.

You're the KXMode of wacky diets.

I don't know. What do they say about ignorance and malice?

Oops, I meant incompetence, not ignorance. Now I'm the incompetent one!
Anyway, never attribute to malice what can be explained by incompetence.

I see you're using a variation of Hanlon's razor, a proverb that eliminates unlikely explanations for human behavior and its consequences through stupidity. I would agree the expression works in certain situations, but not so in the case of marketed consumer products.

In hindsight, it is effortless to see all its flaws two years later. It was not so easy to see them at the time Sean Murray pitched his "magnum opus" to the world. The "you should have known" comments again fall under the hindsight principle.

Also, I wouldn't confuse incompetence with stupidity. The words sound the same, but they are not. Incompetence is the inability to do something successfully. Stupidity is behavior that shows a lack of good sense or judgment. How does either of these come into play when you buy products based purely on information from the manufacturer? In this situation, you rely on good faith that the person or business is working within the boundaries of business ethics. Most companies do. Sean, however, did not. And he will continue to be hounded by that fact. No, not by me, but by gaming consumers in general.

The comparison between Star Citizen and No Man Sky is inaccurate. People knew when Star Citizen would be available for testing, that it would be in an alpha state. Chris made this abundantly clear from the beginning. Conversely, No Man's Sky was pitched by Sean Murray as this fantastic feature-rich experience at launch. Sean knowingly lied to millions of people so that his company could make millions. He never technically broke any laws, but he did engage in immoral business practices. That said, I'm indifferent to NMS and Sean Murray. My recent uninstall is another way of saying I found the updated game to be boring and not worth my time.

functional rivers... does this game feature "rivers" with static water in them that isn't flowing or rocking against the river edge? like most games? Come to think of it though, does any game yet feature rivers which move liquid downstream? I recall Witcher 3 having somewhat active rivers in parts of Skellige, and I remember the wide river in Toussaint but I don't recall if the water was static or not.

Bodies of water on a planet always appear as lakes. Some, as big as the Great Lakes. But there are no rivers of any size.
