>>454583682OP, you massive cock mongler, please explain for the rest of us who don’t play this DOA dumpster fire.
Honestly the No man's sky devs feel like regular dudes that got way in over their heads. Having to show up on normie talk shows and shit nodding their heads when told they basically recreated the entire universe and shit.
>>454583682>for existing playersSo, no one?
>>454583682>They’re still working on this piece of shitProps to them for not abandoning ship I suppose
>>454583963it's still popular on relevant platforms
>>454583905I just Googled it, apparently they're making the online stuff more easier to use (Easier than the new portal system I mean) and they want people interacting and finding other players way more. They mentioned something like "It's not going to be like a typical MMO) so who knows.>>454583984They gained a bunch of attention for sticking to it with NEXT so they deserve props at least, but the game is just as bad as it was on launch, it still has the same core problems of repetition and they even added more grinding than ever before.
It's nice that they're working on it still at least, it's actually a game now and all the updates are free, sony really pushed those guys to shit something out fast
No Man's Sky is shit.>B-But they updated it!Still shit.
so its not free if i buy the game right now? or after the update comes out?
No Man’s Sky Online includes a radical new social and multiplayer experience which empowers players everywhere in the universe to meet and play together. Whilst this brings people together like never before, and has many recognisable online elements, we don’t consider No Man’s Sky to be an MMO – it won’t require a subscription, won’t contain microtransactions, and will be free for all existing players.ok but what are you doing with other players, farm iron? unless they introduce dungeons or shits like that multiplayer is useless
Is this shit finally worthwhile now?
Is NMS worth playing now if I don't give a fuck about base building? I bought the game at launch, but haven't been following the updates.
So they release a shit unfinished game, sell it, make it platinum, and release the finished version of the game as the "definitive sequel"?And people would eat his shit up willingly? How do we know this is finished?
>>454583682(no man's sky was good at launch and has slowly become an incredible game)
>>454584217It's a free update. Still scummy to release an unfinished game and use customer money to add in promised features but it's not nearly as bad as releasing a sequel
>>454583682>install nms yet again after last update>5min loading with pretty damn good ssd>10 fps on 720p and everything on low>uninstallMan, i know that my gpu is far from being best(r9 380 2gb), but there is literally nothing in that game to warrant such low fps.
>>454584217How does it feel to know that nothing will ever make you happy and the catharsis of misery is the closest you'll ever get?
>>454584289Nice shitty taste, friendo.
>>454583682But they said they won't make more
>>454583682All this and more should have been in the base game.Fuck these hacks and everyone who defends them.
Still haven't fixed the boring gameplay. Why did people all of the sudden became shills for this game since they started giving us meh updates?
Another one? Calm the fuck down Sean.
>>454584191>>454584212No. I played it at launch and played it after NEXT just to give it another shot. The grinding is immense now compared to launch. They introduced Nanites to buy equipment upgrades (So the old attachable upgrades) now which means constantly rerolling space stations and hoping your S rank is something good and not something garbage like "Ricochet mod enabled" or a higher cooldown rate than mining damage, etc. The problem is that Ninites are a pain in the ass to get in a decent manner (You get it from uploading discoveries or random clusters of 10 from boxes) yet the best items cost 300+ and you need multiples of those.Credits are easier to get but it still takes an hour or two just to get a couple million even when you're getting 500,000 per animal scan and the best ships cost anywhere from 30 million to 100 million even when you're trading in a ship worth half that.They redid how mining works slightly so you need a mining laser (Get it by default), an advanced mining laser (Upgrade to your default one), and a Terrain Manipulator to actually mine better items. The mining laser requires next to no material to recharge and carbon is everywhere, but the Terrain Manipulator used to be just how the standard Advanced Mining Laser worked except now it eats through ferrite (Previously called iron) like nothing, you need hundreds of ferrite just to reload the thing once and it goes from 100% to 0% in like 30 seconds when mining things with it takes way longer than that.Mining in general also takes twice as long even with the best S rank upgrades compared to how the original release was with upgrades,The only new things you really see on planets after the updates is water biomes take up a lot more space, it's not just small areas, but all the planets still look more or less the same. The corrosive planets all still have squid trees, the water planets all have mushroom/tentacle trees, the regular dustball planets have mutant cacti, etc.
>>454583745I'm sorry your stupid game is still just about finding the same minerals until drones follow you
Meanwhile the next ****big**** Elite Dangerous update was delayed from 2019 to late 2020.FUCK YOU BRABEN.
>>454584874Everybody expected them to just move on after the terrible launch and the updates sound pretty good on paper until you notice that everything is locked behind massive amounts of grinding and actually finding a planet were the cool stuff spawned

>>454584936Just to rant some more, the building upgrades take a dumb amount of material to make, you get them very slowly through quests, the quests take what feels like forever, and you're constantly having to top up on things.Vehicles are absolutely useless because you have to expend rare material to build the dumb platforms to summon them and they're only slightly faster than melee + sprint + jetpack boosting (Which is a movement glitch still there from launch). The submarine is by far the most useless machine just from how little you will actually use it and how much easier it is just to swim around with an oxygen shield instead.The worst part of the new updates is how much material you have to run just to keep running around.>Old gameThauriam9IronPlutoniumThat one blue oneWarp Cells>Post updatesCarbon (Including Activated)Ferrite (Including Activated and Magnetized)OxygenThat stuff you get from asteroids to refill your pulse driveThat stuff you need to actually get the ship to launch off the ground, I can't remember the name but it was somewhat rare.Four different types of specialized materials just for your elemental shields for corrosion, radiation, extreme heat, and extreme cold unless you wanted to constantly carry around stacks of 5 of the shield repairing things.Warp CellsThey gave you more slots to use and the cargo inventory is especially helpful, but holy crap is it such busy work just to wander around a single planet topping up on ferrite, carbon, and oxygen just to move around the damn place let alone if it's an Extreme Hazard planet where you have to expend a shit ton of ferrite just to keep your shields from running out. The Terrain Manipulator alone is the worst addition they ever made.
>>454584289based>>454584583sorry brainlet but your CPU sucks
For all the flak NMS got for blatantly lying to customers, they've redeemed themselves multiple times over.
>>454584187you group up on 1 planet using a certain seed and grief these fagboys if you see them
>People shit on No Man's Sky, not realizing it was Sony who forced them to push the game's release>Liked it anyway at release>Game gets constant updates, continuously delivering content over a term of three years now>People cry it's still shit and are still mad>Meanwhile, Bethedsa can still release shit like Fallout 76 and no one will cry about that, continues to buy their games and doesn't call for a boycott or an investigationCan't wait to try it out, stay mad.
>>454583682>THE GAME WORKS NOW GUYSNMS getting all that attention was the worst possible thing that could've happened to it.
NMS is conceptually cool but it seems a little dry to me. Just wandering around space doing shit. Doesn't seem very focused.
>>454585836Anon everyone called for a boycott after 76. 76 ruined bethesdas reputation where are you pulling this bullshit comparison from? Most people can agree that HG has redeemed themselves by not dropping the game and dedicating themselves to actually delivering on the promises they made.76 was the single largest vidya controversy last year where the fuck have you been.
>>454585836>Meanwhile, Bethedsa can still release shit like Fallout 76 and no one will cry about thatWHATHAT
STOP SEXUALIZING CARL
>>454585325>reddit spacing your fucking greentexts
>>454586202Shoot yourself you dumb nigger he obviously copy pasted it
>>454586043>>454586089I have seen nothing but vitriol from NMS whereas some faggots in another NMS thread actually defended Todd when someone else made the comparison. Ironic or not, it shows how cancerous this board and its faggots are.
>>454586202Look at this animal. Just look!
People still care about this game? Find me one person who does
>>454586252Fallout 76 is the biggest dumpster fire the industry has seen in a decade and the entire internet knows it. Fuck off.
whats up with all the attention whoring tripfags and namefags popping up recently?
>NMS before release: "We will NEVER add multiplayer in ANY WAY">bombs on release for a multitude of reasons>"oh shit, oh fuck, how do we save this already sunk ship?">"I know, let's make ourselves liars by adding things we said multiple times during development we'd never add! No way will anyone ever know we're liars!"
>>454585836Nms is actually a solid game now. It reminds me of minecraft in some ways, like all the freedom it gives you.
>>454586440why, the games hot ass
>>454586390>NMS before release: "We will NEVER add multiplayer in ANY WAY"what? multiplayer was the biggest launch lie.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TVrDaudzn64
>>454586538it's pretty alright now
>>454586309My boyfriend’s mom
>>454586538yes, but it's still the best modern space game.
>>454586315In that case, don't buy or talk about anymore Bethesda games. I want you faggots to do the same routine with those games you're doing with this game.
>But it's only released!>They'll patch it!>I don't want to be alone!
Yet another hype piece with vague and empty promises coming from Hello Games.Remember when NMS was going to have multiplayer on release? Or when the "NEXT" update promised PVP but then delivered 4 player coop ? Like so "B.E.Y.O.N.D" hints at major new multiplayer features to drive up sales for their shitty game but Sean Murray will find a way to under-deliver yet again.
>>454586671>it's still the best modern space gameNot with that flight model.
>>454583963they are all there you just can't see them!
>>454584417Or having every fixed/promised element sold as a seperate paid DLC. I mean, you can hate them for the launch but you have to give them some respect for sticking with this game for so long and providing every update for free.
Good to see they're still working on it, and without microtransactions or DLC costs. I'm glad I didn't sell my copy to at least try it out. Devs had a shitshow of a launch but they've been good about owning it and moving on where most devs would abandon ship. Itll be serviceable anyways and still better than E:D so no complaints here
>>454585453>caring about what someone ELSE is playing
>>454583905the game wasnt a dumbster fire since a year, sorry dude its now and has been for some while now the best single player arcard space exploration game that currently exists.
>>454585960I feel similarly. The core gameplay is still the same. You collect resources, build up your ship, get to the center of the galaxy and then start again. They've just increased the number of things you can do on the way to this end.
I bought no mans sky a few months ago. It's alright, but it's even emptier than BotW.I managed to get 300 hours out of the latter despite that, but can't even get 100 in nmsIt got repetitive fast. Emptier than BotW with the resource hunting of Minecraft. It's a recipe for tedium
>>454584289this but unironically
>>454583682What's the win state in NMS?Is it just minecraft autism?
>>454587407well if you dont like the gameplay loop of upgrading and traveling further you of of course wont enjoy the game. For me it has replaced diablo3 as my after work relaxing game soundtrack is awesome, after you get some upgrades the game is releaxed a couple of mods that shut up the ai voice and tadaa comfiest game in decades.
>>454584289It was good at launch, but with every update it lost a bit of the unique 1.0 feel. Ironically, the environments became less and less diverse and alien
>>454587602there is a single player storie that ties to reaching the center of the universe you can also skip it if you rather go upgrade and reach the center withouth story
>>454584289There really are apologists for every piece of shit under the sun.NMS just shouldn't have been sold at triple-A price.
>>454587628I don't tend to play games where I can conclude with certainty that I will be able to beat them easily. Similarly, I stop playing games when I feel like I've experienced everything they have to offer.Can you see in your mind's eye your future self playing NMS? How far does it go on? Do you experience anything new? It's time for a new game.
>>454587602Single player story that ends pretty quickly if you just warp to each Atlas Station and then do the handful of on-planet quests.Finish all the quests for base building which takes quite a while due to all the ridiculous items you need to make and the material required to make them.Get to the center of the galaxy.Get S rank freighters, ships, and all the best upgrades on them.Get S rank upgrades for every Exocraft.Get an S rank Multitool.That's pretty much every goal in the game as of NEXT. The Exocraft upgrades and S rank freighters are the worst of everything to be honest. Center of the galaxy is just three or so hours of warping over and over with about 50 warp cells and all the S rank upgrades for an S rank ship.
Might get back into NMS, bought it with Next, was going to play the shit out of it but then I got urges for WoW and BfA which was a big fucking mistake. I do have two questions, though, for anyone currently playing.1) Are NEXT saves compatible with the current version? I want underwater ecosystems in my save.2) Does the duplication bug still exist? Or if it’s been patched, is there some equivalent way of exploiting the game for E-Z shekels?
>>454588263Feels like you're not hating on NMS as so much as hating on survival/sandbox game as a whole.
I thought at launch it was good-for-listening-to-podcasts at best, but it's nice to see it's getting better. Imagine if Spore had had the same treatment.
>>454588263It wouldn't be so bad if the economy didnt require pure autism-level grinding to get enough money to get the s-rank frigates and ships
I still can't comprehend how anyone could fall for hypetrain of some indie game.
>>454588775Millions of Sony shekels.
>>454588828Why would Sony advertise some INDIE game so fucking much?
>>454585836>b-but muh sony boogeyman!sony didn't force the devs to lie about their shitty game, that was their own fault.
>>454588562It used to be better in the earlier days just because you had less to worry about if we're talking the survival stuff. There's just so much more annoyances now even with the addition of cargo spaces because there's far more materials you need to hoard and far more to micromanage. If we're talking the actual game it has a lot of quality of life updates but all the planets are still mostly the exact same outside of those rare unique encounter planets so it never feels like you're actually seeing special places making the actual game part of it a chore.NMS just needs to make planets more variable instead of corrosive planets all having the exact same squid trees and introduce way more unique planets in every warp. Get rid off the Terrain Manipulator as well, that is the single worst addition they've ever added to the game just from how much ferrite it consumes to obtain things like the environment-specific items.
>>454583682How can anyone with brains get hype for this crap? Neck yourself, OP.
They keep mentioning base building. Don't you leave your bases behind when you go to a new galaxy?
>>454584289Well, not so, the planets are all shitty now, they used to be more variated and vivid>also: wtf spheres
>>454588883for the same reason why steam, nintendo and microsoft do it - to appeal to the plebs who actually like indie shit.
>>454589071You can warp to your base from any space station in any system (Along with the last 30 or so systems) and you can even warp your base to where you are just by placing down a base computer which costs next to nothing to build.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4KxRp8jeliQ>never forghetti>hand sweaty>mum's sphaghetti
>>454588984Maybe just make the manipulator require less ferrite. I like using it to touch up and landscape my bases.Also, I agree with making planets more varied. I want planets to have multiple biomes and more varied landscapes. As of now, once you've seen one part of one planet of each biome, you've seen everything in the gameFeels bad, man
>>454588685>SporeMy heart is fucking aching.
>>454589163He's talking about Galaxies, not star systems.Warping to a new galaxy starts you from scratch aside from the ship you used and your inventory.
NMS core gameplay loop is a fucking chore and would have been better if it was a walking simulator that focused on npc interactions and story rather than being a shitty Minecraft wannabe.No amount of updates can salvage this game.
>>454589321>I like using it to touch up and landscape my bases.Just make it so you can press a button to switch the mining laser into the alternate fire mode like the TM already does to build stuff. The original release mining laser worked almost exactly like the TM did, we didn't need a separate ferrite-consuming behemoth.>>454589428Whoops, my bad. I didn't play much in my second galaxy but from what I recall didn't it still allow you to warp back to your original base until you made another one in the new galaxy?
>>454589536I wasn't aware there was already a terrain editor of sorts in older versions - I'm new to the gameAnd it might let you warp back to old bases in a new galaxy as long as you don't build a new one, but I don't know. I just know that you can't have a new base in multiple galaxies
Paid 15 doritos for this game. Played for over 5000 hours so far. I find it super chill. Maybe I have autism.
>>454589072I just hope they fix that in the new update, i don't really care about multiplayer
>>454589809>I wasn't aware there was already a terrain editor of sorts in older versionsYou know how in the modern version there's those random areas you can mine with it? In the base game you could just mine those outright with the laser I think you needed the Advanced Mining Laser to do it though) but you couldn't excavate random bits of land from what I remember, just those dedicated areas. The only change you would have to make is just apply that feature to the mining laser and make it take ferrite to eat at the random terrain while actual stuff you can mine takes up carbon, that's all.
>>454590027Ehh Then you run the risk of destroying terrain and eating resources whenever you're mining. Maybe give it two alternate fire modes to toggle through?
>>454590234There's already a slight delay before it farms the next item after you farm one so that shouldn't really be a problem, but a toggle is more than acceptable. You'd have to have one anyway for building up the terrain. I just really hate how you have to switch to it and how much ferrite it drains to absorb maybe 200 of a rocky outcrop. 0% to 100% is like 28 Magnetized Ferrite which is the third tier of Ferrite and a pain in the ass to get from refining unless you expend ferrite and find it in the wild to mine. Doing it with normal ferrite is something like 90ish normal ferrite and you usually have to recharge the thing two or three times for the areas you find resources in. It's just ridiculous, they'd have to nerf the requirement severely to make it tolerable.
>Shills pushing No Mans Meme>Random Trip also trying to force "It's a good game" Thread should be deleted on the spot but Mods are all payed off so companies can shill stupid ass dlc and updates to there faggot dog shit games.

>laughing spanish guy.jpg
>>454590613>also trying to force "It's a good game"What in the world are you talking about, it's an awful game that has so many core problems you'd have to basically redo the entire thing to fix it and requires an exorbitant amount of grind. The unique planets that are actually unique are the only appealing part of it and they're almost never seen.
>>454590794Turn your trip back on so you can stay filtered.
The biggest problem of No Man's Why is that its got one hundreds of quadrillions of planets all jammed into the relative spacing of the 1:1 distance between one end of the Milkyway, the void between, and the other end of the Andromeda galaxy.It makes exploration really meaningless, because everything is TOO bunched up. Also, instead of having a star and planets and moons and asteroids and gas giants and this and that with procedural variety; its just planets upon planets upon planets upon planets that ALL have life.Oh and they all have practically been like 60-75% explored already. How the fuck is it possible for a universe this large to be that much explored.
>>454587392It's amazing how much it changed since release
>>454584936>>454585474>he doesn't know the overhauled mod already fixed all that you consolecucks always getting btfo
