Personally I am already done with this game. Just an empty sandbox with limited things to do. A lot of hype for a half finished game.

I assume you haven't visited the Atlas yet? If you haven't then you have no idea there is an actual story in the game. You're only looking at the surface.

Waiting for Astroneer, a similar game that allows the construction of far more things and guess what it is multiplayer.

The very thing you left NMS for is coming soon.

"For instance, freighters and building bases *are* coming!"

"Next up weíre adding the ability to build bases and own giant space freighters."

I'm still in system 2, but now I'm on another planet. This one has toxic rain! Check it out... rain hits my ship!

https://vid.me/MMPB

Never been more happy than I am right now listening to soothing sounds of deadly rain hitting my ship. Dance

I've not left the first system, either. I'm sure I've overdone it, but it's fun, so...

I somehow walked inside a cave that went on forever. Some of these procedurally generated caves are absolute mazes. When I finally found an exit I was about 5-minutes away from my ship. So I decided to keep pressing forward. So far I've learned 83 words, and I have traveled 62,796 units enough to earn the "Wanderer" milestone. But the best news is that I now have 16 ExoSuit slots! http://screencast.com/t/8tbpEjXCwan

Thanks, nin for the shelter suggestion!

Hey, question. I know 48 is the max ExoSuit slots. If I come across drop pods will can I keep buying slots?

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

Thanks, nin. That's most helpful. I've been wasting that beam on Monoliths as I would like to learn the alien language. I guess having more inventory slots is slightly more important.

But the FOV is BRUTAL. they have a slider in the options, but their "100" feels like 60, and their 60 feels like 20. it's nauseating, I can't play this without an ini tweak. I pushed my monitor back as far as my desk will allow, and lean back in my chair as much as i can, and i'm still about to puke just doing a 180 turn...

You can go above 100 by changing the following in the TKGRAPHICSSETTINGS.MXML file.

<Property name="FoVOnFoot" value="100.000000" />
<Property name="FoVInShip" value="100.000000" />

I've set FoVOnFoot to 165. I think it looks ridiculous but you might like that.

I'm not sure where this file is located in GOG Galaxy, but in Steam you can find it in
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\No Man's Sky\Binaries\SETTINGS

I think it's safe to say that for many the hype train derailed and crashed into a school full of children. The response from many has been, shall we say, unhinged.

While I haven't experienced any game breaking problems, only a fool would say they don't exist. The only glaring problem I've had are the jagged edges even with full anti-alias, and SSAAx4 turned on. I believe the lighting on objects not properly distance scaling is the culprit. Here's what I mean.

My specs:
* Windows 10 Pro 64-bit
* Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-3770K CPU @ 3.50GHz (8 CPUs)
* 16 GB RAM
* NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960
* Graphics Settings

Anyhow, I am genuinely having a lot of fun. I finally figured out what NMS is. It's the sci-fi version of The Oregon Trail. The center of the Universe is "Oregon". Your starting system is "the city of Independence". Hoping I don't die of dysentery ("toxic rain") along the way.

I'm not going to lie. This minor delay is very disappointing, and entirely out of left field. But my preorder is still intact. So I guess I'll wait until next Friday to play.

...And procedural life goes on.

But seriously, what did you expect from two of the worst astro turfers on this board? An open mind and logical reasoning? It's all about the attention and outbursts. Every video game is the best or worst thing ever. Every minor situation requires a soapbox. Disagreements are personal vendettas. You're dealing with the mentally unstable, remember that.

I have never attacked anyone personally as you did with this post. The reason? This site's basic ground rules. It establishes basic decorum and etiquette when conversating with others. Unfortunately, those rules have been broken more than a few times in replies directed towards me. This site should maintain its high standards and never tolerate people calling others "mentally unstable." It is a form of "griefing" and an "attack of a personal nature".

Do you feel hurt in any way or that you may possibly be 'triggered' if this keeps up? Griefing, no matter how small (including the exploitation of a "perfect jab opportunity" towards others for misspelling words), is strictly against the rules. Online bullying is the #1 cause of rollerblading, after all. Don't be that guy.

There's a HUGE difference between:

"Pro-tip. The next time you decide to call someone a brainiac, have the decency to spell it correctly. "

and

"You're dealing with the mentally unstable, remember that."
"I get it now, you're a wealthy twit that hates poor people. Another hypocritical christian, you're proof that's one messed up cult."

But I have to admit I've have had a strong urge to take up rollerblading in the past few days. I'm trying not to be that guy. *shivers*

You know, sometime I will purposely misspell certain words just to see who the grammar Nazis are. I guess you just passed the test.

Considering you didn't write the original post and also considering Sepharo wasn't inducing a grammar nazi "trap" (which, is just petty if you actually do that), it was a perfect jab opportunity, given the word used.

I guess 10-15 years ago we were the idiots who drank Blizz's Kool-Aid.

The obvious implication being that people who enjoy Overwatch are now the idiots who drink Blizzard Kool-Aid.

Can't believe you actually took that post seriously. The smiley should have made that point crystal clear.

"Four for fore" sounds like one of the most complicated short statements, especially if the conditions for all three words aren't met. For example, if you say that at a restaurant, or you say that at a golf club with two friends. This boggles my mind at 1AM on a Friday. I need to go to bed. Toodles.

Uh... well, seeing as how I was talking about my taste in games I don't know how you can confuse "I guess what I'm saying is Blizzard no longer makes games that appeal to me" to mean you.

So you weren't at the very least curious to try it out yourself?

Of course I curious about it, but I see no need to try it out. I have the money but I have no plans on buying one. The challenge is I'm committed to finishing my 6-months of living expenses (I have four now), then paying off my mortgage as soon as possible. Not having any debt is more important to me than a VR device. It's a distraction that only weakens my will-power to stick to my goals.
