    True enough, I assumed he meant other players to rob.

    If he means humans then yeah, i totally agree with you, if he means the activities regardless if the target is a player or a npc, then there is a chance.

    No Man Sky got IGN first again lol. Another month of videos, this video actually shows NPC alien interaction which I believe is new... also shows the inside of a building on a planet, some alien interaction, how to find cave networks, crafting and how the planets temperature system works:



    Also some space pirate shit for the plebs.....

    He talked a little about what he hopes the community builds around the game. I hope there is someway to input some sort of community geocaching.

    The main talking point about NMS has been "okay each the art style is GDLK and the sense of scale is(Trump voice) huuuuuuge, but what else is there to do besides walk around?"

    The footage proves there's a lot to do like crafting, trading, deciphering alien language, FPS combat, space combat, exploring randomly generated everything, encounter stuff like black holes, and ultimately the goal is to upgrade your ship enough to reach the center of the universe for some unknown reason.

    So I get NMS has content and isn't simply just a walking simulator like many think it is, but it doesn't really grab me and make me go wow that looks amazing I need it ASAP! It's more like...looks pretty cool ill pick it up on sale sometime this summer or more likely Christmas.

    Maybe they can install some kind of AI that constantly berates you and curses you out for not meeting your objectives, that might get your masochist rocks off.

    Add permanent death and make health packs super rare and I'm sold!



    Yo that IGN first video is exactly the marketing NMS needed, no bullahit trickery just straight uninterrupted 29 minutes of game okay to show what it's really like and for me it's the most Impressive I've seen from NMS thus far.Nigga lands on a planet -164 Celcius so he combines resources he got on other planets to create a bomb which he threw at some random wall and it opened up a hole into a cave where it was warm enough to survive that's fucking cool. You can learn single words of alien languages which come up in conversations you have with aliens and you respond with dialogue options slowly learning language that's fucking cool too. You can hack into some places, or use your good standing with aliens, or just shoot your way in which gets attention of enemies that's and the more enemies you kill the more difficult they get if you wanted level gets high enough they send ships after you that's fucking cool. Space combat looks tough and you can shoot parts of larger ships, swoop in to take resources then leave that's fucking cool too.


    That was awesome there's not just a lot to do, but it looks really fun, and I was surprised to learn how survival focused NMS is, it seems easy to death game doesn't fuck around you need resources to survive and shouldn't piss everyone off lol.

    Yea I would say adding a more strict penalty to death would change the atmosphere of the game for the better.

    Maybe not permadeath lol but a strict blow to your progress and materials would be nice.

    That would be stupid. Not every game needs to be Darksouls hard to be enjoyed.

    Not saying every game has to be dark souls but imo immersion is lost when you go on a space rampage and after being blown up you respawn on the ship you were attacking.

    Doesn't break the game, not even close just something I would like to see implemented.

    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.

    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.

    Bitch please, probably be irl weeks before we would even run into anyone lol.

    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!!!

    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....

    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.
