The truth is I truly wanted the game to be the epic and exciting title the developers have been telling us it would be. I have had it on my Steam wish list for a long time now.
it might not be as epic and exciting as the developer thinks it is but i would expect Hello Games to be giddy about a game they are creating...i mean, it's kind of their life's work at this point....if you have problems buying into hype, that is your own fault....

However, a game so large in scope would have been a daunting accomplishment for a large studio, let alone Hello Games attempting to pull it off. If there was ever a game to avoid pre-ordering (which should never be done anyway) and letting the overzealous crowd be the guinea pigs on, it's this one.
you know, if this game would have been sold for $30, people would probably be saying the exact opposite...but becuase it has the AAA price tag, people think it needs to be AAA quality....meanwhile, 10 freaking people made this game....10 people...not 1000

and what is the hangup with preordering games?? you seem to just be parroting other people again, so why is this a problem?? i was going to buy it anyway, so preordering just makes things easier...games just show up at my house on Tuesdays....it's pretty nice, actually


Also, discounting a popular post made by someone playing the game just because it was posted by someone who hasn't seems arbitrary, indefensible and a little weak-minded. At the time I posted this it was the most upvoted comment in a gaming-centric subreddit full of gamers. It seemed like it held appropriate weight.
i said he had valid points, which i would gladly discuss with him since he actually played the game...i am not sure why his opinion is so important to you though...


Finally, I don't know if you've noticed this but most of the people (yourself included) who badger me on Hearthstone have never touched the game in over 2 years. I just don't use it as a defense against them because my spine is stiffer than that.

The lengths that anita goes to in order to defend a console exclusive Playstation game is truly a beautiful thing.

Sorry. I just assumed the essays you posted in response to criticism were defending the game.

anyway, for those that are playing, i found a planet that is loaded with albumen pearls...they sell for about 25k so you can cash in

but the sentinels do not like it at all...they will come after you with the 4 legged dog looking things and the AT-ST like robot...it's 3 stories tall and will mess you up pretty good

but there are so many of the pearls that you can grab a couple and move on to another location and grab more without much of a fight

I tried it today for about an hour. Eh. I'm not sick of it yet but I don't see myself playing for long. Also, Titanfall 2 beta tomorrow. Yeah, I'm probably done with this.

No Mans sky has lost 90% of its players after 2 weeks




The Division lost 59% after a month
Far Cry Primal lost 76% after a month

This is pretty alarming.

It's unfortunate that the hype train builds to maximize first week sales and leaves early adopters and people that still pre-order (why?) games left behind.

Now, you couple that with this review embargo nonsense of not letting reviewers publish reviews or even play the game until launch and then compound that with the industry-wide practice of basically bribing game journalists for good reviews and you can quickly see the victimhood of many come into focus.

It's predatory marketing and it takes advantage of simple, good-hearted people like Antipop. Well I don't like seeing that happen to developmentally delayed friends. Anita, I'm going to have to confiscate your credit card.

Sony was responsible for promotion. The Hype train is Sony's fault.

All I know is that I have 3-4 galaxy waypoint paths and I have no clue what all but one sends me to. I get the priest guy to find me blackholes, but then have no clue how to get to said blackholes. I can't shut off the other waypoints and start new ones. And the game still crashes quite often. At this point, the only reason I'm playing is in hopes to beat the game so I can move on to Deus Ex. However, since I can't seem to get reestablished in the right direction, I'm just kind of jumping about in the abyss of endless systems.

i'm not going to get in a shirtless slapbox match with you over NMS...i enjoyed my time with it and i have no ragrets about preordering it and i may even play it in the future if they add more stuff to do....

i preorder games for a couple of reasons, one of them is because you hate it so much that it must be a good practice...the other is because i am going to buy it anyway...unlike you, i decide what i like based on my actual experience with it...

gaming is a hobby for me, it's not some contest to see if i can keep up with the cool kidz or for the "OMGFPS!!"...

you are so desperate for attention, you seek out information on a game that you have no intention of ever playing...you are probably high-fiving your own reflection as we speak

now kindly shove your new video card up your arse sideways and ****
