    Just pre ordered on PSN specifically so I get no in game bonuses. Game like this needs to be fully experienced without pre order crutches. That would be like getting 10K blood echoes as a preorder bonus in Bloodborne. And especially for players brand new to the game, where is the fun in that?

    That said, with the new gameplay footage, the hype is absolutely through the roof. I will be playing this for YEARS.

    10k Blood Echoes in Bloodborne would get you almost no where lool. Thats like 5 level ups or a couple of useful items :rofl:

    I get your meaning tho. Whenever i start DXHR i always get a free teanq rifle, shotgun, and like 10k in cash for no reason, that is a sick ass head start in that game lol.
    It's not the end of the world, but you can see it from here.

    So heres my question. Every time i see gameplay of this fucking game its played like its pre generated cinematic bs.. What does this game look like when someone plays it normally.

    Second are the planets fullt explorable? Like can i go on for what seems forever or is the playable area limited a la minecraft console where its a giant square?

    Also i agree with you guys, the game needs more multiplayer playable enviorment. Maybe not run into players but i sure fucking hope i can invite my friends to go on a space adventure because if not.. Fuck this game and fuck the devs, how do you miss the most golden of golden opportunities.

    The fuck?
    Since the very beginning what you have seen from this game is in game graphics.
    No to mention that since e3 2015 they have shown people playing chunks of the game to show what the game.
    There are plentie of videos out there, you have to not be looking to not find them.

    Cool thx for the tips guys. I gathered that you move at a snails pace in this game and that the play area is maybe a quarter mile worth of range with some underground. The only thing i have seen decently demoed is the space shit.

    All these videos keep saying the same shit. Its all randomly generated... 18 trillion planets! Space!!! Our own periodic table! Minerals! Traders! Like is that all this game will have to offer? The overall concept seems hype but this just feels like a smoothed out minecraft that happens in space and instead of goung thru and having to create a new seed every time you want a new world its all already built. Oh yea and i forgot... Space.

    Like the goal is to get to the center of the universe... Why? Is there an actual story to sorta follow? Whats at the center and why does no one know whars there?
    I really wana get hyped for this and outside of the concept of exploring space and universes its really hard to think anyone can play this formore than say 10 hours without falling asleep, specially with the movement speed they keep showing off.

    Ps: thanks for being super nice and helpful guys srk at its finest.

    Here is a link to a reddit post where they did sort of a FAQ: https://www.reddit.com/r/NoMansSkyTheGame/comments/4didkh/what_do_you_do_in_no_mans_sky_and_other_questions/

    To answer your question about the planets, no there is no box. If you wanted to walk from one end of a planet to another you could do so. To describe the size they were called planet sized planets in an earlier video about a year ago, expanding further they confirmed no gas giants, only biomes and terrain that would provide some type of enjoyable experience.

    I honestly don't see how any of your other questions weren't answered by the 21 min video posted on IGN a few days ago.

    They need to add gas planets imo, and make them like giant storm clouds in space that you can fly into to grab rare gear at the risk of getting murked. Also want to see some large asteroid action.

    Yea I was bummed about the no gas giants thing. They explained that at first they set the parameters to find life a diverse biome on planets to be about 10%. But in practice it made for a bad gameplay experience so they boosted it up. I would have no issue flying through a gas cloud avoiding crazy storms and diamond hail.

    There are asteroids that you can mine, not sure what else you can do outside of that.

    I wonder how the moons will be. Will they sometimes be the only place with elements and the planets being desolate? I want to say in a previous video they landed on a moon that had a similar biome to the planet they just left but I'm not sure.

    This is a game to keep an eye on. Hopefully someone makes an extended Lets Play so the game is easier to analyze before deciding if it should be purchased.

    Good luck finding your friends amongst 16 quintillion planets!

    I know right? There's people I haven't seen for years on this one alone!

    I'm hoping that there will be a way to at least send a message to your friends (Or foes) in the game. Chances are, there will be a way to launch some sort of space beacon with your planet's ID on it.if nothing else, shooting a text to your buddies online will let them know when they've at least run across some of your property. Of course, if these are the kind of friends you wouldn't let sleep on your sofa........................Keep 'em off your damn planet!!!

It's fun learning how to "take a bump" like a WWE superstar, isn't it? Yeah get beat you worthless trash. Get shit on. I want to see you bitches crash and burn forever. It's like I can smell the fragrance of their ruined lives... it fuels the soul.

    A video about the game's tech, demonstrating pretty clearly that the game is not strictly RANDOM. Very interesting the way they are doing it, if the game is successful, this kind of tech will probably spread.

    The ign folks take one solar system and look at how different planets look the closer you are to the sun. Its also Friday so another video or article should be up today.

    Thinking of making the first post a "first planet showcase".

    Pretty much everyone uploads a snap shot of their starting planet and list any species or elements found. Good to see what type of variety is in the starting planets.

    I'll edit the first post with everyone's write but put it under spoiler so it doesn't fuvk this thread

    Which leads us to said video.



    A VERY good look at the procedural generation, explaining why it's not RANDOM and won't simply be the same shit after a week.

    I just noticed what looked like floating islands at the end of the video... Oh my....

    Gives a good look on what went into the comics that will be releasing, and how they approached putting a "story" in the game

    Almost every game. Almost.

    Even if I didn't tho, Dark Souls, Fallout and whatever 2 or 3 fighting games I play at the time already take up so much of my time. There's so much shit I wanna play still. :rofl:

    Its official, game delayed until early August:

    http://www.ign.com/articles/2016/05/27/sony-posts-new-no-mans-sky-release-date

    Alot of shit on my plate right now anyway... Still wanted the game at the end of next month though. He is right about 1 thing, this game has a massive amount of buzz (both from fans and people wanting to see the game fail). They got really one shot at this and with the plans of this being a service with a bunch of shit added in the future, stumbling out the gate isn't a good look.

    Being a gamer is like being black...some of the negative stereotypes apply to a good chunk of the demographic, but with haters pointing it out all the time and being snobby about it it makes said demographic not want to admit they're right.


    Anyways between SF5 and Overwatch no way in hell I have time for a time sink like this right now anyways I'm glad it got delayed, and I doubt this is the type of game to be inundated with enough DLC to get a GOTY edition anyways, I don't think I've heard any mention of DLC at all thankfully.

    So how many hours do you guys predict it will be before you start seeing similar biomes and planets that are recolored?

    So how many hours do you guys predict it will be before you start seeing similar biomes and planets that are recolored?

    Depends on how you define similar. If you mean you land on a random planet and you look around and go "man I've seen all this before", then probably never. If you're talking about things that would exist on potentially many planets like forests or jungles in general then probably...still might take a while to find. In terms of "those art assets are all from this planet I've been to before" nah, that's not happening. It's not how the game works.

    PS4 for me. Already bought and paid for. My vacation week had to be moved, but fortuitous for me it coincides with the new date for NMS so I'll be able to get more in than I would have had I been working that week. After the long lull with no no info/trailers, the hype is RETURNING. My body is so ready.

    I thought you could kill life on the planets and excessively mine their resources? Is that not true?

    Btw someone has already made it to the center of their Galaxy. It took him 30 or 40 hrs iirc. Oh and he has some leaked footage floating around.
