No Man's Sky
18 minutes of game footage. God this is gonna be some kinda game.... The galaxy map always blows my friggin mind.

Amazing. I have never seen a video game with so much depth and scope. Once players get into the game and get stuff built, will empires develop and dangerous armadas roam their territory? So cool.

I play EVE and complicated as EVE is, it pales beside No Man's Sky.

Mook 07-06-2015 09:03 PM

I dont think its gonna be like that.

I saw this game previously and couldn't help but think it's either going to be absolutely awesome, absolutely shit, or never be released. The scale of this game seems so huge that it could be it's undoing. Hope it's awesome though

Looks like a cartoonish Destiny

IDAFC21 07-06-2015 09:09 PM

I wonder how many people will ever actually reach the center

Mook 07-06-2015 09:10 PM

Oh I'm sure the reddit nerds will.

Flyn 07-06-2015 09:22 PM

More video and screenshots. The ships have guns and there are dogfights. If it's player on player, it's going to be good.

The controls look SUPER clunky on land.

Yesssss. Haven't seen anything new about this game in a little while. Hope that just means they've been hard at work on it. They're gonna have to be if they're gonna hit that June release date.

Well heres some more info.

You Can Do Much More Than Fly Around in No Man's Sky | Kotaku UK

Some of the more interesting tidbits


-Your weapon in No Man's Sky can be modified to blast away terrain. You can create a hovel in the ground to shelter in, or dig through the surface of a planet to find beautiful caves below. Your modifications to the surface of planets are permanent – but bear in mind that the planets really are planet-sized, so a huge area that took you an hour to explore on foot is barely a pixel once you're back in orbit. I cannot understand how the game calculates this.

-The crafting system that puts these materials to use is actually much more robust than I'd thought it would be. Exploring in No Man's Sky is all about your equipment. When you first set out, you don't have much of anything, and won't really be able to survive anywhere for long. As it turns out, this is a survival sandbox game, like Minecraft's survival mode in space: you need to find materials to create things that better enable you to survive.
And here's where it gets interesting.


You've already seen the dinosaurs and cool birds and weird fish-things that pop up all over No Man's Sky's planets, but it also has intelligent life. There are several different intelligent alien races in the game, who have colonised a great many of the planets, building structures and flying their own fleets. You can gradually learn how to communicate with aliens by studying their language, examining artefacts and buildings and so forth, but at the beginning you have no idea what anyone's saying. I walked into a building about five minutes after landing on my first planet and a very dangerous-looking alien said things that were probably not very nice. I made explosion noises and waved my arms about (one of three options the game gave me) and... he handed me a new gun. Lucky save.

The scope of this game is just insane. God I hope they pull it off.

Mook 03-05-2016 10:48 AM

This game almost makes me want a ps4. Almost.

IDAFC21 03-05-2016 10:54 AM

If it can do everything they claim and not be a buggy mess when it releases, it might just sell a lot of ps4's. Well, a lot MORE ps4's. :s00ls:

IDAFC21 04-11-2016 09:12 PM

21 more minutes of gameplay. For once im actually OK watching vids like this, cuz due to the expansiveness of the game, I don't think anything you see can really be considered a spoiler :rofl:

A little closer look at how crafting works

Vincent looks like he crafts a lot of burgers into his mouth.

IDAFC21 04-15-2016 07:56 PM

Well thats not very nice

Mook 04-15-2016 08:04 PM

That vid was a really bad example of trying to sell that game.

IDAFC21 04-15-2016 08:06 PM

:dunno: Was just a little snippet of one aspect of the game. Yeah they could've showed it a little better.

Flyn 04-15-2016 08:54 PM

I lost interest in EVE and haven't been playing any video games. This game might draw me back in.

I still think that there are going to be gangs of buddies getting together to blast NPCs and other players. Certain areas of space will be controlled and dangerous to enter. I wonder how much communication will be possible in game? Can you set up check points and "toll" other players who want to get through? So many possibilities. If it's possible, gaming nerds will empire up to give them the control they don't have in the real world.

IDAFC21 04-15-2016 08:58 PM

If you read a little more about this game, you'll find that you'll probably never see another player in this game for probably..ever. haha. Everyone starts this game in a different location, and space is VAST.

Flyn 04-15-2016 09:17 PM

Agreed, but once players get near the center of the universe, what do they do then? That will be a much smaller volume of space with players running into each other. It will also be the "goal", the most important area of the game. I think, if it's possible for players to talk with and destroy other players that that is where alliances will take control of the paths to the center.

If I got to the center, saw what was there and accomplished the goal, what would I do next? Head off in a random direction or start building alliances with other players to control access? I think human nature would be to control, conquer, destroy. That's the way it works in EVE. Newbies don't last long because experienced players are much stronger and team up.

IDAFC21 04-15-2016 09:20 PM

Honestly I don't think anyone will ever make it to the center :rofl:

Flyn 04-15-2016 09:45 PM

I think you underestimate the hours a committed nerd can play. Experienced gamers blitz through 100 hour games in a day. IMO, unless the game is designed so nobody can get to the center, players will, sooner or later, get there.

I think I'm pretty good at EVE but I have no chance against guys who have played nearly every day for years. They have ships, weapons and strategies that kill me quickly.
