Every time I see something else on this game it just reinforces that day one purchase I'm going to make.

Visually the game looks amazing and it will be a day one purchase if only for the experience of getting in my spaceship and flying in one continuous sequence from solid ground into outer space (haven't done that since Skyfox on the Apple II).

However, I do wish there was a little more information on just what the structure of the game will be like as I have heard all sorts of conflicting stories. Will there be standard missions? Will there be a world/mission creation toolkit? Will it have some kind of a campaign? Etc.

Forgot to post this the other day. The Verge visited the studio and got a little hands-on time as well.

I wonder if the flora and fauna are procedurally generated from a bunch of different parts and textures or if there are just a set number of fully formed plant and animal types that are stuck onto each planet. The former may be asking too much but it would make exploration much more compelling.

I am trying not to get too excited about this game, but it is hard. It looks amazing and the concept is extremely compelling for me. But the developers are shooting for something that is very ambitious, and I just don't want to get too hyped only to have it not deliver in the end.

Is there any objective, my main worry is there may be this massive universe with nothing to do in it.

The developer interview suggests that players will start at the edge of the galaxy and the story will compel them to travel toward a goal at its center, beefing up their capabilities along the way. For whatever that's worth.

The one thing I'm worried about is that since everything is procedural that there won't be enough variation between worlds. If all the worlds have the same dinosaur like creatures but with different names or colors or the heads a switched hear and there, the game will get boring fast. Same can be said for the planets themselves, if all the vegetation/landscape looks similar but just different colors then this game will probably not hold my interest for very long. Who cares if they can have an infinite number of planets if they all end up looking pretty similar, that just doesn't sound that exciting to me.

I just hope that each planet is truly different and unique but, that may be asking to much. I hope not though.

I feel bad for these guys. They're getting so much hype it's not even funny. Going to be hard to live up to.

The latest video answers some of my questions about the variety of plants and animals. Each type has a bunch of different sliders for every characteristic so there should be a decent variety. That giant snake creature in the desert was really impressive too. I've read about collecting resources to sell, but I hope that applies to plants and animals too. It'd love to travel around different worlds, looking for rare plants or dangerous creatures to hunt.

That was a good video. I wonder if you'll ever run into other civilizations or is it going to just be wildlife? I'm talking about finding a planet with a city on it, not just the few structures we've seen in some of the videos.

No Man's Sky

You know, as much as this game intrigues me I'm getting tired of seeing videos and hearing about it with still no release date. Tell us when the thing is coming out already or just stop talking about it until you are ready to release it.

I wish more game studios would follow Bethesda's lead on how to announce a game. Their reveal of Fallout 4 a few weeks ago and then announcing a release date, just 5 months away, last night. Years of teasing a game is getting very old. The Division is another one I wish they'd shut up about until they are ready to show what the game will actually look like because, I'm also sick and tired of fake cgi trailers, only to be disappointed when the final product is downgraded. Fallout 4's reveal and showcase was perfect; real gameplay, no cgi and no year or 2 wait.

Agreed, and last night's demo was less than intriguing, to me. Nothing new, nothing exciting. Meh.

Agreed.
I think this game is too big and more that they can handle.
Maybe that is why they can´t give us a release date as it looks that this game as no end.

Nope, although they said they'd be announcing one soon but, I think they said that last year as well. This game may turn out to be this generation's "Last Guardian" so I expect to play it on my PS5 at this point.

Finally we get to see what you actually do in this game. At least I haven't seen any of the actual mechanics like scanning, shooting of any kind, space battles and factions. I wonder how the diplomacy works...

After watching the presentation I figured out the game this reminds me of: Starflight on the Sega Genesis. That version is a remake of a PC game from the 80's but you're doing lots of the same things, though at a much higher level of detail.

This team consists of what? 10 people? I'm willing to give them some leeway above and beyond because the idea is really cool and the team so small. They might be letting their ambition get the better of them in sheer size but the art and the vibe is really good imo. Then again, Sean Murray might be one of those "just one more fix" perfectionist directors that just won't release the thing. Hope it ain't that.

So they tease us in 2014 at E3 and everyone goes crazy? Then they tease us again in 2015? And still no release date?

I think they were planning to release in 2015 but once they saw what they created they realized they needed more in the game, an economy, etc.

They made a rock so big they can't lift it.
