So basically you're just a dude who doesn't have the balls to sue Hello Games for fraud and instead just prattles on about this injustice online? I'm not saying you don't have a point (we're not morons - we all know deception happened at some point) but for those of us who are positive, we've decided to just forgive the error and move on.

I know it's the US way to sue the living hell out of everyone, but in some places around the world, there are times when we choose to forgive. That's why some of us can enjoy the game.

If you're the suing type, just get on with it and stop whining.

Sean Murray is free to keep releasing updates on the money he made from scamming people, and I'm free to keep reminding people what a scumbag liar he is and how his entire business is based on unethical behavior.

So it's a "yes", then. Got it.

Over a hundred years ago, con men used to roll into towns and peddle their elixirs and tonics claiming to cure whatever ailed people for a $1.00 a bottle; and later advertisements in newspapers. An inflation calculator I found went as far back as 1913. A $1 in 1913 would be $25 today. That's less than a $60 video game. So why get in an uproar over a lost buck? What's the big deal? It IS a big deal, and so much so that the United States government passed The Pure Food and Drug Act of 1906 to protect consumers from people engaging in fraud and deception as relates to medicine claims. The point is people cannot profit from lies (see Bernie Madoff if you need a reminder). The car analogy wasn't about a price tag. It's about selling a product purely on promised features that are not there on delivery (e.g., lying to consumers).

So basically you're just a dude who doesn't have the balls to sue Hello Games for fraud and instead just prattles on about this injustice online?

I don't care if they release 100 free DLC's over the next 10 years that make this the greatest game of all time, I won't buy it for 50 cents, or change my mind about the team who made it.

They consciously and deliberately mislead people to steal large sums of money from unknowing consumers, they are scumbags. I don't care if they spend a small fraction of it making the game better, that's like stealing $1,000,000 and donating $10,000 of it, then thinking you've redeemed yourself. You haven't, and you won't.

I'm with this guy. The hype was clearly out of control but Murray rolled with it, misled everyone, banked massive amounts of cash and enriched his publisher's shareholders, and now he's trying to vindicate Hello Games by pushing out updates. If I had bought the game, I'd probably appreciate this, but I never bought it, and I never will, mostly because the entire game seems half-baked and unfinished. Putting out an update to try to ride on Subnautica's coat tails isn't going to do it for me and a revamped space dogfighting simulator wouldn't do it either.

It's really not much different from how Aliens: Colonial Marines was cast in the pre-release footage, only then the full game came out and it was hot garbage. Remember how one modder discovered the crappy alien AI was due to a single spelling error?

Dude, you really have no idea about the game. Itís not half-baked or half finished. When it first came out the game was actually quite fun (despite the whining here) and Hello Games have just kept adding to it. This addon isnít a Subnautica ripoff... itís their normal base building under water, because the community asked for the under water areas to be more interesting... and quite frankly, it makes sense to enhance one of the most sparse areas of the game.

But anyway, this is pointless me saying this. You just keep on whining on.

Well, I don't care that this game was over-hyped to begin with. I've played many over-hyped games that were still worth playing even though they fell far short of the stated vision (Peter Molyneux's game for example).

I'm thinking of buying it. Is there much gameplay outside of resource gathering, building, and traveling to the next planet to do the same?

I canít say Iíve progressed a long way into the game, but I havenít been bored at all. Thereís obviously a lot of resource gathering, but there are lots of story threads, interesting things to see and do, and a fair amount of unexpected stuff.

Itís definitely not just collect and fly to the next planet - rinse repeat.

Yup. A person who commits a crime in the 80's and evaded capture but is now living an upstanding life today is still guilty. Time doesn't erase the crime. I'm not saying Sean Murray committed a crime. But in a genuine sense, he did repeatedly lie about a product to make a buck, which IS a consumer crime in certain countries if convicted. He has never once accepted responsibility and apologized for it. Even Geoff Keighley, former IGN editor who brought us many No Man's Sky gameplays and first looks, called out Sean for lying to his customers.

People like me are the reason Hello Games even exists today. We're the reason first-time buyers today get to enjoy the full experience. We got dumped by the wayside for no other reason than a dishonest person duping us into buying his incomplete vision. Not even Chris Roberts or Peter Molyneux has ever gone to the evil of Sean Murray's sales tactic. There's a vast difference between making promises early in the dev cycle, and flat-out lying about features you know is not in the product. He lied about what was in No Man's Sky up until the day it shipped.

If you still don't understand the gravity of the situation go watch the Star Trek Voyager episode "Nothing Human." (S05E08)

I was considering making a proper reply to you bunch of bitter whiners because your supposedly justified moaning is so insanely over the top. Then I remembered this is Bluesnews.

I recently picked it up and have put almost 50 hours into it (kinda scratching the surface) and Iíve barely seen any issues. It runs fine for me. That said, some people still have issues with it, including corrupted saves.

Iím just loving the game though... itís one of the best Iíve played in years. Highly recommend! (assuming you have a good run)

I hated this show after the first 3 eps.. but hey, as a German I most definitely don't get this humor.. probably because it wasn't funny but hey.. who knows.

It's not because you're German. It's because it's incredibly unfunny.

Yep, and I like how people talking about having their mp3s forever, as if mp3 is a quality format or even one thatíll be around in the future. Or, even that in the future youíll be able to access the devices things are stored on. The film world is currently trying to work out how to archive digital films they might not be able to access in the future.

My music? Wrong. All my music is in M4A and MP3 format (over 17,000 files) that are 100% DRM free that will play on any device, any place, at any time, with or without an internet connection. Only chumps who stream music through an online service are at the mercy of DRM.

I think you're in an increasing minority. Surprising (and disappointing) to me too. The on-demand model is just so much easier for the layperson who doesn't want to bother worrying about 17,000 files.

Or buying 17,000 files. The average album is, what, 10 songs? 17,000 files is going to be around 1,700 albums, then. At $10 per, you're at $17,000. Or maybe you're finding deals on CDs, in which case you still need the physical media (who in the world wants that?), and it's still going to run you $8,500 minimum, right?

Spotify is $9.99 a month. That means his music selection cost, at a minimum, 70 years of Spotify. It's also around 70GB. And, while he says "any device, any place, any time," that's not entirely true.

I pay for Spotify. According to the stats I see, I've listened to 13,000 different tracks. In that time, I've paid about $480. That's about 3 cents per song I've listened to. I have basically every song ever made at my fingertips. If I get a weird urge for something I never anticipated, I can listen to it. If I don't have internet, well, I can't satisfy the weird urges, but I can save my most frequently listened songs on my phone pretty easily, and honestly, airplanes are the only time I'm more than 20 minutes without internet. Beyond this, laying in bed I can have Alexa queue up a song for me without having to open my eyes, find my phone, and subject myself to a bright screen in the middle of the night. I have Sonos, which I can also yell at to start playing whatever song I want. I can create playlists for my girlfriend and send them to her instantly without worrying about whether she has the songs, or how to transfer them to her. I can start playing music in any room in my home from any device I have, regardless of where I am. Then, when I walk out the door, I only need to plug in my headphones and it's now on my phone instead of wherever it was before.

Again, assuming he paid for 17,000 songs, that's ballpark $17,000, or 70 years of Spotify, to be limited to those 17,000 songs. I don't see how that makes much sense, but for some reason people keep pushing it as the "smart choice" and that everyone else is dumb and stupid and needs to get off their lawn.

Despite a few quirks, Next is awesome... especially when you turn on tessellation - it looks amazing. Gameplay wise thereís just a ton to do. I havenít been bored for a second.

I don't know. Ever since the last update, it seems like the graphics suck worse now. And a lot of the equipment I had disappeared. I had to stop, the grind was killing me!

Time to visit your local optometrist...
