There are a lot of people that are going to be very disappointed wasting money on No Man's Sky. Exploring lots of worlds will get old fast. The game is pointless in the end.

It is a single player game that tries to call itself multiplayer, but even by the slightest chance you were to meet someone else in the game there is no way to interact.

It is really a shame too, they could have added a bit of the old game Starflight and this game would have been a major winner. As it is, just another half baked game that really has nothing to extend gameplay beyond the exploration phase.

They got too tied up in the term sandbox and forgot that a good sandbox has lots of content.

You write like you have already played it but I know you have not. Maybe I don't watch/read enough marketing stuff but the only claim to MP I've seen is a dev describing exactly how limited it is.

Saying Exploring will get old is a pretty horrible outlook on life though. It just might work, maybe scouting out a dangerous planet and finding something unique you need for a rare upgrade will be as exciting as clicking repeatedly on a nasty named mob in Diablo and having loot pinata. Probably not but you are not going to hurt for reviews of this game. Healthy cynicism is a good thing but premature evaluation of something that looks like an attempt at something newish (Or at the least a modern take on something we haven't seen much of recently) seems short sighted.

I won't pre-order, space games have disappointed me recently (Enemy Starfighter/HotdS *sadface*) but I think it's silly to jump on the hate-wagon here, as it seems even more ridiculous than the hype wagon. (Albeit more likely to be true, given that almost all games turn out mediocre).

Interesting side note: there was an article last week, about some guy who spent like $1300 on a copy of No Man's Sky early, so he could get a two week head start. It was on PS4 though, not PC, I believe.

These pre-order people need to up their game.


Based on what they've shown, anyone that preorders NMS deserves to get bit in the ass.

Yeah for pre-chaser's, that might be the only sales No Man's Sky gets.

Really? No Man's Florp is #1?

I`m really looking forward to the mental gymnastics the Boo Camp will have to go through to produce some excuses when this game refuses to flop (something that looks more and more likely every day).

What`s it gonna be lads? Gimme a taste already

I might give it a shot, but only after the reviews are in.

Last I heard, some guy was claiming it was going to "revolutionize gaming" and change it forever. Haha. Seriously. It looks so boring. It's the same minecrafty grindy stuff every other game has been putting in. So there aren't any invisible walls.. does that really mean everything out there will be worth exploring?

Maybe it will be moddable.. that would be the defining thing for this... but seeing as it has some nonsensensical forced online component I doubt it.

I have absolutely no idea why people are pre-purchasing No Man's Sky, wait for reviews! So many extremely hyped games recently have been panned, it just isn't worth the gamble. And the preorder bonus, I wouldn't even want it. I want to work my way up to a ship with better guns, not buy one.

C'mon people.
But but but what if they run out??!!1

I really look forward to playing We Happy Few when I can find time for it.

I backed it, and it looks fun, but I do worry a little about longevity.
