    They haven't even attempted to patch this? Holy fucking nuts.

    not gonna lie, wish I could try it out for a bit. Seems like it'd be really relaxing to play.

    Ya'll ain't gonna believe this...................................



    Really? Since I got stuck with the damn game anyways, I'll see if there is anything to it when and if the DLC hits. I don't know how in the hell they will be able to make ANYTHING that will make up for the shit that has happened, but I'll look into it when and if it happens.

    Always think it's strange when black dudes accuse other black dudes of not being hood enough. Like isn't that a good thing?

    The QOL improvements alone seem to be worth it. There's more...polish in this update. Feels less game-y. There's more layers to what's going on. I just started a new Skyrim playthrough but I'll come back to this from time to time and give more detailed thoughts. Like what I'm seeing so far though.

    The update is live already? Neat.

    Gonna try this out when I get home.

    Went to the gamestop today. No Man's Sky is on sale for $49.99

    The one near my house is selling it for 30. Where the hell do you live?

    In a place that actually thinks that they're going to get someone to buy this shit for 49.99.

    well, it loaded and I played for a little bit. Now I'm stuck trying to get a new mining laser (Protip: you can always just grenade the minerals if need be.) and some new plans. I've got one of the gek working for me, but he needs me to get him some elements before he can do anything. the sad part is that for the ten minutes I've played, the stacking thing isn't really doing shit. Those items that take up one whole slot? now you can stack them. No luck on the other stuff. :mad: Still no multiplayer that I can see, and you still have to grind like a bitch to make sure your ship doesn't run out of stuff to get around. there are a few new things that you'll need like the advanced mining laser and the haz mat gloves, but so far this has been one snore filled DLC. Looks like Dolphin face murray strikes again.

    EDIT: Sorry. Forgot to mention that now the cross pad is far more usefull than before. tap up and you'll see new options to explore when you get the stuff you need for them.

    Most notable/useful features in the update:

    - The lighting is much improved and makes everything look better. Being on a rocky planet in the daytime now looks hot and dry as it should.
    - terrain color scheme and geography generation is better. From what I can tell, when they change the algorithm completely it does a better job at creating variation than the algorithm itself. I'm thinking maybe they should do that from time to time server side.
    - terrain is far more interesting now, but so are animals. And now I see them attack and kill each other (one of the promised features that people bitch about). A much larger percentage of animals attack the player as well meaning a much less pedestrian experience on most planets
    - Quality of life stuff is invaluable for people who actually play the game. Acquiring things like the Atlas Stones or Gravitino Balls no longer take up unnecessary space in your inventory, but stack on themselves. Likewise, the quick menu is welcomed as well

    I haven't touched base building yet but what I've seen already out of the changes damn near make it a different game. The multiplayer people are dying to get so bad is probably incoming as well since they'v added the ability to leave messages for other players ala Souls games. I like the changes, but I have renewed faith in the games' potential.

    Apparently there are more free major updates planned in the future so this is the "foundation" for the the rest of them per say. Maybe come back in a year or two and the game might be worth the money we invested into it.

    Personally I wonder if this'll be too little too late. It is good to see them finally breaking silence and adding stuff, but a lot of people got burned pretty badly already.

    But only play it in a few years. Got it.

    Store page download size kinda shows you how much game you were getting.
    Its no 41 GB MLB the Show! Damn that's double the 2013 size, that was broken up into 2 download parts.

    To those that still have the game, definitely check out the pathfinder update. There's a lot of new features, and as seems to be par for the course with these updates, several quality of life improvements for people who have been playing consistently since release. Algorithm seems to be further tweaked for even more detailed and varied terrain. Fuckin land vehicles and finally the ability to name your weapons and ships (was a big deal to me, could be a big deal to some). Combat seems to have changed a bit and instead of randomly receiving blueprints, you receive a new currency whereupon you can buy the blueprints that you want. Another huge step for this game, and as the updates keep coming the haters get quieter and quieter.

    You talk like there was an active gang of people still hating on this game.
    Everyone knows this game is a joke.
    All the haters and jokers just left because it's practically dead.
    Really, you guys need to find something else.
    Sean Murray is going to take until the next presidential election to get you the game you were promised on launch.
    !

    There was, actually.

    But they are less and less. Still as many comments and likes, but the ratio is more and more positive.

    Probably boosted by the Steam popup on startup weekend Sale that doesn't say the price/discount.

    Still over 50% retail MSP


    Still over 72,769 negative reviews. HATER NATION

    & that homebrew guy renamed his game. Still another 3 word title in that vein.

    Ya'll are really truly some cocksuckers.

    But obviously the reason the thread got bumped was because the game received a substantial patch that adds a ton of content. that is news relevant to the fuckin NMS thread.

    So this game is the SFV of exploration games?
    A whole lot of nothing with expensive DLC?

    How much is a lot of content in the grand scheme of the universe?

    Another news blurb was very recent.

    Hello Games trying to collect funds, some very secretive no details collective to help others make voxel/procedure games too. Like we don't already see enough of those, and who would trust them to both hold or funnel money, by putting in more money into bad money, effectively those people who have bungled it?!

    Why the fuck is this games still 40 bucks and One Piece Burning Blood is 19.99 at Gamestop?

    Anyway.

    Pathfinder Update is a good reason to come back if you own the game and put it down, waiting for updates.

    so they wait until I finally give up on it and delete it, and NOW it's got fans? You know, when we says,"Git gud scrub!" we usually are referring to a bad player, not the game itself. Not really feeling like sitting through all that DLC time again plus now it seems there will be even MORE DLC to go with the previous. Meh. Guess I'll at least stay tuned to this thread for now.

    I'd be surprised if their faith holds out much longer. amazon's got it on sale for 24 and change if you're interested.

    You sure you don't mean the trash bin? I think you'll find plenty of copies behind Gamestop.

    It's not like he's gonna buy it. Pablo is just gonna take a shit in the bargain bin once the game is in there.

    I get what this dude is saying though. I enjoyed the next gen Fallouts and now Skyrim due to the fact that a lot of the game is just exploring certain areas at your own pace. It's very relaxing to me.
