No Man's Sky

Recommended Posts

I don't mind delays if it results in a better finished product. I'd rather that than a fucked up launch that needs immediate patching. Of course it will need immediate patching anyway because it's 2016, but, like, hopefully less urgent immediate patching. You know what I mean.

I blame Gonzo

Now - the fact that Gamestop is still promoting and taking the pre-orders makes it seem like it will be just a couple of months instead of "indefinitely"

I put in my preorder like an hour before this dropped, so I think it was me.  Sorry.

YEAH, PHIL! YOU PUT THE BLAME ON ZIMBRA WHERE IT BELONGS!

(Although I'm guessing that bumping the thread this prematurely didn't help. My bad.)

They say that now, but I fully expect it to get delayed again.

Related: I'm excited for this game, don't get me wrong.

But man, there are some No Man's Sky true believer types, particularly on Facebook, that have absolutely lost the fucking plot. Seriously, I swear that there are some of those folks that do nothing but post about this thing.

If this isn't the Citizen Kane of video/computer games, there are going to be some pissed off folks out there.

Not even owning a current-gen console I'm watching closely because if it is what it most optimistically seems like it could be then when I do buy a new console I won't have to think about which one to get. 

 

No mo FOMO!

Oh you mean like making death threats to everyone - including the director of the actual game?

I'm starting to realize that the "gaming culture" that exists now a days is just a toxic cloud I want nothing to do with. It's why I only play games online with people I know in real life or from here now.

Holy Fuck, that's insane.  I like gaming but I don't think that a delay of Mass Effect: Andromeda is worthy of a death sentence.  Not even an asswhipping as I'd rather get a relatively bug free game that is delayed a quarter than some unplayable bullshit that hits right on schedule.

Pretty cool that the top two comments on that story are "Sure, threats are bad, but why did you report instead of printing a press release" and "Those weren't real threats."

Another day, another story about people overreactng to something in popular culture.

Don't let it be said that the NMS groups on FaceBook are completely worthless.

I originally had my pre-order for the PS4 Limited Edition in with Gamestop, and someone in one of the groups posted that Amazon was back to taking pre-orders for the Limited Edition again. So, I switched over.

Gamestop cost with S/H - $86.48

Amazon cost with S/H - $63.99 (Thank you, Amazon Prime.)

So that was decent of them, at any rate.

I guess that's a great success for...marketing?

I'm so proud of that tiny team. 4 years of promotions.

Well, I take it to mean that it's not getting delayed again. Which is nice.

yeah, I read a snippet about this on gamerant or somewhere, idk...I've been on the road for 5 hours today.  heard he paid like $1250 for the leaked copy..

I like video games and all, but fuck man....I like money too.  I could wait a couple more weeks or whatever and save $1200 or whatever

For that kind of money you could get a Very Special Copy of Shenmue III from Kickstarter (c)
