seems too big.

infinite worlds then over time players will drop end up no one to play with
lol. well not really infinite, but close enough http://www.pcgamer.com/no-mans-sky-h...illion-worlds/

anyways you are correct and i also wrote that above - that so long as u treat it as a SP game, you're fine.

actually i am very interested in the OST of the game by 65daysofstatic

i am jus afraid the game might fail under its own weight. since there isn't really a clear answer of the game. what can/should we be doing in the game? is this minecraft in space?

i should be trying the game out on steam.

one of the biggest goals is spelt out - to get to the center of the galaxy. but like all sandbox games, most of the time you will have to create your own goals.

yeah. it's crazy that the developer mentioned that chances are 99% of the content they created wont be touched by the player.

it's fine, Hello Games devs have strong math background and have done their calculations.

same for Elite Dangerous - same sort of experience in the sense that it will take a very long time for every system to be discovered since it has a close 1:1 translation of our known galaxy.

no explicit goal. just a survival sandbox game in an uncharted galaxy. more details:

suggest u read before considering getting involved, esp if u have little experience with sandbox games.

This is what got me hyped.

It sounds like so much to explore, so many probabilities You can do pretty much anything, everything or... nothing! imho it'll either be an epic game, or an epic fail (consumed by it's own hype). I hope it's the former. Am looking forward to the hours I'll spend in NMS already

as far as i can tell, it's only explore planets, name animals / plants / planets etc.... and discover resources / artifacts to upgrade your ship - to aid you in getting to the center of the galaxy. that's about it.

i don't think you can do anything and everything alternatively don't expect anything so at least you won't be setting yourself up to much disappointment.

haha no? Perhaps we mean different when we say anything and everything.

The impression I get from various vids & articles is you can pretty much do anything you want in the game. Aside from what u mentioned, players can choose to loot a planet dry of its resources and kill the lifeforms already there (at the cost of being Wanted of cos), side with factions... or not, craft, trade, learn languages, communicate with other sentient beings (if you find them)... etc. ehh aka do pretty much anything!

Mhmm... yeah true, expect nothing = no disappointment but it's kinda difficult to not expect anything by now
