Hello Games has been keep working on No Man's Sky and they are about to release a new big patch in upcoming weeks.

Interesting to see if gamers will forgive project's poor start and give the game a second change.

About Me.png

I wrote that way back in 2016 when everybody was shitting on this game for being the most awful piece of shit in existence because apparently the internet had collectively forgotten what a bad game really was until "Life of Black Tiger" reminded us in 2017.

 

What upset me about this was the fact that much of the outrage was directed at the game being "boring and repetitive" to which I would always say: THAT'S THE POINT OF THE GAME, because it's about the journey, not the destination. What the devs of No Man's Sky were trying to make was a chill game that realistically covers what space travel would be like in a distant future setting, because despite what Mass Effect or KOTOR or any game set in a fictional universe with tons of "hot blue alien sex" would have you believe, real space travel is not exciting or thrilling, in fact it's actually very boring and repetitive and will likely still be that way in the future... only then we'll be exploring planets for future colonization and cataloguing the various fauna and wildlife we discover, as well as any extraterrestrial lifeforms we come in contact with (aka, what you're always doing in No Man's Sky) because space travel is not fun, it's not glorious and it's not exciting, it's... a job that requires meticulous attention to detail and a great deal of patience so you don't go insane, and considering I've been able to explore and name 200+ planets as well as their unique fauna and wildlife and can apparently speak Gek, Korvax, and Vy'keen at least semi-fluently without losing my shit because I had to refuel my ship or recharge my gun constantly, I think I'd make a pretty good astronaut.

 

Honestly I'm kind of glad I'm not seeing so much negativity surrounding this game now because it seems like people have finally realized what it was all about in the first place, that great existential question that's always gnawing at the back of our minds as we stand on the foundations of future colonies that will be built by our ancestors who carry on our legacy -- which is "IS THIS THE TRUE MEANING OF LIFE!?"

 

...Or they could just like driving around in colossi and blowing shit up, who knows, either way I still love this game and I'll probably keep playing it for many years to come.

Are saying that people who hate the game were wrong to hate it because they just didn't get that it was supposed to be a boring, tedious chore? Sorry, but we're talking about a game here set in fictional universe. The "simulation" games that serve the purpose of accurately showing how boring it actually is be a farmer or drive a train I have a hard enough time understanding, but to turn exploring space into a tedious job is just a poor concept from the get go.

I've recently purchased NMS with a friend and we'll both be playing because of the features NEXT is bringing. Specifically multiplayer and joint base building on a much larger and diverse scale. They released some general things that were coming with NEXT. However, some of us are waiting on the official patch notes to be released so we can see exactly what else has been added. SO EXITED!
