What a fucking joke the stat of this game is in.

If NMS had done this on their own, it might be somewhat understandable, given the small size of the team. But they had the vast support of Sony at their disposal. I wonder if Sony lost all of their institutional PC game knowledge when they sold off SOE. Still, the magnitude of these issues are such that they seem hard to have been missed. Hard to shake the feeling that companies don't care about PC when shit like this occurs. On the other hand, Sony will probably draw the conclusion of "See??? It's easier on console!"

SMurray Tweets:

Biggest issue reported so far is players without the Visual C++ Redist 2010. First PC patch released already! Update and restart if needed

Don't most games install this for you if it's not detected?

Number two issue so far is players who have out of date GFX drivers, or none installed. Please install latest drivers from AMD and nVidia.

Last time I tried to play a game with outdated drivers, I got a warning.

Number three please make sure your GFX card is above the min spec. OpenGL 4.5 is required to play No Man's Sky

Required cards are "Graphics: nVidia GTX 480, AMD Radeon 7870 " The vast majority of Steam users have cards more powerful than these, although I do see a few Intel Graphics users in the Steam HW Survey.

Seems completely broken.

Thus all the additional QA! Good thing the game doesn't launch on PC for another couple of months.

Current Steam Stats:

Total players: 179,231

NMS is #3 currently. I guess a lot of people took the day off to play NMS.

You don't get to play any games anymore, do you? Everything is a port these days.

Star Citizen isn't a port! And it's going to be the best spaceship game ever! Someday...

I mean I generally get whatever is on sale (and I am very limited to a small whole bean selection in my shitty supermarkets) but I like Starbucks beans. French, Italian, Espresso, Sumatra dark roasts are all good. And no, they don't "taste burnt."

Ever tried ordering off the net?

I think it was a link from here but there was an article not too long ago that I followed the advice of and started putting my bean container in the fridge to keep the beans cold, which someone else referred to in an earlier comment but keeps them frozen. I feel like so far it's kept them fresher longer, and does improve the uniformity of the flavor.

Yeah, I get 2 pounds of beans at a time from Costco, usually what ever strikes my fancy. Right now I have Colombian Supremo 100% Arabica Whole Bean by Seattle Mountain Coffee. I leave it in the fridge in the original bag. I just pour out the beans to grind and roll the bag up again, squeezing out as much air as I can before closing it with a big binder clip. They keep their sheen and taste fine for at least a month, by which time I've used them up.

I don't know about BJs and the SB beans, but Costco roasts and bags their coffee right in the store.

So I rewatched The Force Awakens a few days ago and once I got over my 'dear lord this is A New Hope retread' mind frame it really isn't bad.

You've gone to the dark side! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

This new Rogue trailer is much better than the angsty first one. That being said, I've heard they had to do a lot of reshoots which doesn't bode well for the project.

So what you are saying..... is that to get Starbucks beans, it involves BJ's and sucking?

*hands Blue his chapstick*

And everyone chokes at least the first time, you'll get the hang of it

Everyone chokes the first time because coffee is bitter? Not following...

I ps4 a lot of stuff any more. I like the pickup and go.

Plus, I've had a 3 day head start on you.


I have to admit I enjoy more games that I use my 360 controller for on my PC. So I get the big super reclining office chair, recline and put my feet up. Sadly this is how I'd destroyed 2 controllers playing (I finally got to Skelligrade Isles after loosing 3 saves) Witcher 3.

I don't understand how playing in the office chair using the controller for PC games has destroyed 2 controllers...

Reporting from planet Space Oddity in the Bowie system: ( )

I'm having a pretty good time with it, so far. First game in awhile where time just seems to fly - each of the last two nights I've only had an hour to play, and it seems to go by in minutes.

If you believe you are stuck, or can’t reach your ship, be aware you can jetpack forever whilst pushing against any surface

That's handy, didn't know that...there were more than a few spots I didn't jump into, for fear I wouldn't get back out...


That's almost too bad. I understand why they did it (to emphasize the exploration aspect), but it seems that some places *should* be off limits until you can upgrade your jet pack to the point where you can boost long enough to not get stuck and have to commit suicide to get out.

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!

The No Man's Sky Beta is released!

Also, welcome to the QA team! Please follow the guidelines on Hello Games' website for submitting bug reports.

But totally ready for this

Hey Cutter, don't forget about the multibullion dollar TV contracts.

As for pensions, a lot of these guys are too young and undisciplined to know how to save for the future. And many make the bottom-run salary which is about $300K, which sounds like a lot, but if you get injured there goes your livelihood, and then what will you do? I'm just saying given the sickening amounts of cash in pro sports, having something in place to help these people later in life isn't a bad thing.

Cant say that im surprised about this news. But MS must be cringing right about now. Gotta love it! Nothing like some good old salt rubbed in the wound.

I'm sure MS will ease their pain by taking a dip in their swimming pools full of money. This issue means very little to them.
