There is a specific seductive pitfall in game design: "Man, the idea of flying a ship around the stars and exploring various planets is compelling. That's a lot of work, though. If only I could create just the right set of scripts, the computer could generate thousands of planets for me, automatically!" Ultimately, though, you only get out of procedural generation what you put into it. It may be chopped and shredded and randomly arranged, but the human brain can readily make out the individual components of that salad, and very soon every successive salad will seem the same as the last.
From what I hear it seems that PG in NMS is just tame - and lame as a result.
Imagine PG with minimal limitation. One planet has no landmass above water - ocean planet. Other has gravity five times more that on Earth. The third has almost no atmosphere and the fourth has atmosphere like on Venus... If you have equipment, you can explore, if no - you just fuck off. And if you miscalculated your resources you are screwed - as it should be.
Imagine going on the planet but having your ship damaged or going out of fuel, settling temporarily on the planet to gather resources to fuck off from there - space sim turning into a survival sim for a time.

And the thing is, I'm pretty sure that game resources will allow such kind of variation. Devs just won't do it

I am not sure if I am more disappointed by the actions of Hello Games or the Reddit-driven consensus surrounding this game. It got really bad after the Internet Historian video.

In the other hand, this game has become a great litmus test. If you run into someone who claims that Hello Games completely fixed the game and delivered on all or even most of their pre-launch promises, you 100% know you are talking to someone who is not worth talking to.

The IH video got me and my brother to both buy the game (at full price) to play coop. In fact this game was one of the factors involved in me spending 400 dollars to upgrade my CPU (Kingdom Come Deliverance was another factor, to be fair). Now neither of us play it and whenever I play video games it's in DOSBox.

I'll never get hoodwinked like this again I fucking swear :keepmymoney:

All of the things that made the game shit on launch day are still present now, all they did was add bloat.

Youtube e-celeb reviews are less reliable than IGN now. They all just copy each other to maximize views.
It's most noticeable when a mediocre game has some glaring flaws and every single one of them makes a near identical 30 minute video discussing only those flaws.

Well, I used to only play MMOs for resource grinding and crafting. My favorite was LordToadstool (a midget black man with a huge white from and a fungi fetish). He'd run around nude in his explorer hat collecting resources, dodging monsters and ceafting what he could. Since you could get xp and levels that way besides skills I decided to make that my mission ..... until....

the fucking resource cap was tied to levels (same with crafting). You had to be xxx level to even attempt. Fucking gay. It didn't matter my mining, gathering, crafting in all firlds was as high as pissible and couldn't increase on the current resource spaens; NOOOOOO! You had to be this certain level for the next tier. Bullshit!

Minecraft I skipped. I just couldn't get into it at the time and fuck no now.

Well fuck. I was hoping this game might have been something. Damn...

So this game good? I decided to watch some vids like this:

As mentioned just a few posts before yours, people who sincerely think Hello Kitty Games "fixed" the game or made it at all worthwhile are complete morons. And I say this as someone who has a high tolerance for unfinished janky games.

The short version, just FYI, is this:
- exploration is fucking pointless. There's just nothing interesting to discover as the procedural generation is too repetetive. What's worse is that the fucking game keeps generating too many fucking repetitive "anomaly" worlds and systems which are even worse than normal planets.
- every system or mechanics implemented, even those after launch, are too shallow. There is of course a level of complexity you cannot expect from a broad genre-merging project sure, but this is way below what one should expect. Doesn't matter if you want to build bases, blast shit on foot or dogfight in space, it all is too shallow to be enjoyable.

As I mentioned at least 2 times ITT, the people shilling for this game (the ones that aren't complete redditards and other mouthbreathers at least) are trying to get you into a pyramid scheme, probably hoping that if enough people gib money to hello kitty games they'll get some scraps of new content they always wished for.

I love how markec always makes fun of the perceived "popamole" other people play but he seems to enjoy the worst game of recent memory.

I have to assume he does, because why else post an autistic 40 fucking minute video about it? I can summarize the game in 30 seconds for you - It was a scam. It is now a bit less of the scam it was 5.5 years ago, but it is still a hideous pile of shit with repetitive assets, a horrible interface and tedious "gameplay" that makes Minecraft survival look like you're playing a mix of Planescape Torment and RimWorld. It's not even fit for sightseeing as the procgen is shit and dull. The end.

No Man's Sky is coming to Switch, so I'll finally get to play it! Although... I have no idea how they're going to get it to run.
Regardless of perceived quality, I still really want to give this a try. I just want to land on planets and walk around, tbh.

I bought the game to land on planets and walk around, and it's somehow rubbish even JUST for that.

Oh! That was a video? I just saw the pic and shrugged. Dare i watch it?

Dude has probably faulty ram kit and doesn't know about it. Proceed to complain that game crashes every 30 minutes and still plays 20 hours.

No No man't sky is still boring as it was back on release though there is more stuff in this shit sandwich.

I can summarize why Force Awakens is a shit movie in 5 seconds yet I will still watch 145 minute long RedLetterMedia review of it. I dont understand your logic here that if a person watches 40+ minute review of something that person obviously loves that piece of media. It looks like I am a huge fan of pretty much every movie RLM reviewed. Is there a time limit of a video review that is acceptable before its considered that a person automatically loves that which is reviewed? I would ask to explain your logic behind this nonsense but I dont believe that any sane person even you actually believes this.

Instead I will assume that you are acting up because you are butthurt I mocked some game you liked and called it "popamole".

Seeing how I make fun of pretty much every new piece of media, can you enlighten me which one did make you butthurt. You need to understand that mocking a certain game you like must have been a traumatic experience to you, but to me its was just tuesday.

3.8 PATCH NOTES
SENTINELS
  • Three new types of Sentinel Drone have been added: Heavy Combat Drones, Repair Drones and Summoner Drones.
  • Combat Drones use a variety of weapons, including terrain-destroying grenades, close-range scatter shot, and a rapid fire laser rifle.
  • Repair Drones are lightly armed and weak, but will rapidly seek out and repair any damaged Sentinel units.
  • Summoner Drones are little threat in themselves but if left unchecked will quickly overwhelm careless Travellers by calling in waves of reinforcements.
  • Sentinel drone navigation has been reworked, allowing for better pathfinding over rough terrain, and allowing drones to pursue players into buildings and caves.
  • Sentinel Drones now deploy static combat shields, creating a dynamic battlefield. Players may manoeuvre to take advantage of these shields for themselves, or open fire to destroy the shield.
  • A new high-level Sentinel has been added, the Hardframe Battle Mech.
  • The Hardframe can be found at high alert levels or patrolling near secure buildings.
  • The Hardframe is well-armoured but highly mobile, being equipped with a jetpack.
  • The Hardframe has access to a range of weaponry, including grenades and a plasma flamethrower.
  • Sentinels can now be temporarily disabled, either by defeating the final wave of Sentinel forces in a battle, or by locating and interfacing with a planetary Sentinel Pillar.
  • The canisters dropped by Sentinel forces have been visually refreshed, with drones, quads, Walkers and Hardframes all dropping distinct items.
  • Sentinel canisters have had their physics adjusted so that they are less likely to roll away at high speeds during a fight.
  • At higher alert levels, or on extreme Sentinel worlds, waves have been adjusted to bring additional forces in over time.
  • Sentinel base health has been increased.
  • Sentinel weapon ranges have been adjusted to keep targets in a more structured combat formation.

  • A new class of secondary Multi-Tool utility has been added, the Cloaking Device.
  • Activating the Cloaking Device will cause the user to become temporarily invisible, allowing rapid escape from Sentinel forces, or for a quick tactical repositioning.
  • The Cloaking Device has its own power source and does not need to be recharged.
  • The Cloaking Device is available to research aboard the Space Anomaly.
  • A new upgrade has been added for the Pulse Spitter, the Impact Igniter. This technology causes every projectile from the Pulse Spitter to set its target on fire, as well as deal damage on impact.

  • The sentinels now deploy their forces in greater numbers, to create more dramatic firefights.
  • All grenade-based weapons have received new icons.
  • Plasma Grenades now deal only 10% of their full damage to the player who fired them, reducing the risk of a fatal accident.
  • Plasma Grenades now deal slightly less damage on impact to all targets, but will now set the target on fire and deal damage over time.
  • The base damage of the Pulse Spitter has been increased.
  • The speed of the Pulse Spitter’s projectiles has been decreased.
  • Pulse Spitter projectiles are now affected by gravity.
  • The speed of the Boltcaster’s projectiles has been increased.
  • The Boltcaster’s burst cap has been increased, so that it can fire more projectiles before needing to cool down.
  • The positioning of player weapons has been improved in VR.
  • The placement of the player’s hands on two-handed weapons in third person has been improved.
  • Heavy weapons (such as the Blaze Javelin or Scatter Blaster) now use a stronger recoil animation, to reflect the power of the blast.
  • Weapon projectiles now apply an impulse to Sentinel drones, pushing them backwards.
  • The rumble and camera shake of all weapons has been adjusted for both drama and impact, but also player comfort.
  • When in an environment that prevents weapon use (such as the Space Anomaly), the HUD will default to a more subtle crosshair.

  • The cap on owned Multi-Tools has been increased from 3 to 6.
  • When items are added to the inventory and the inventory UI is open (for example, when dismantling a piece of technology), the items now prioritise being added to the currently active inventory page if possible.
  • The visual appearance of Multi-Tools in the Quick Menu has been improved.
  • While piloting your ship, if your current mission is asking you to visit the Space Anomaly, then summoning the Anomaly now has priority in the Quick Menu over the Galaxy Map.
