    It looks great and I love the concept, I just want to explore with a bro. That's all. No MMO. Me and a bro.

    NMS got canned in another review I saw last night. I think I'll pass on it until it's heavily discounted.

    It's pretty fun but not really worth the $60 Sony approved price tag.

    I enjoy the game despite it's many problems. Every criticism I've read so far is completely valid, though. I wish the game was a lot better and sometimes less bland.

    I think it's a buy when it's sub-$20. But hopefully by then they will have resolved some of it's most glaring flaws, too.

    Yes; I think it's gone on my potential Steam discount pile... when that happens. Steam Xmas Steam?

    I remember when I posted in this thread.

    I think I played it for about a week before I moved on. After visiting one too many planets I began to sense what kind of experience was in store for me if I continued. Go to a planet, find Emeril, mine Emeril, buy upgrades, refuel suit and systems, repeat.

    I don't think the game is bad, but I just don't have the time to do the inventory management menu game atm.

    There's also a problem with repetition. Having a potential for whatever Quintilian Procedural generations for planets is a cool idea, but when you only have several dozen assets for the math to pick from what happens pretty quickly is you start seeing similar things on every planet. So it's really more like visit a planet, see one of a several atmosphere types, maybe the sentries are berserk or maybe they aren't, and then find things to mine. The wildlife starts to look like the same skinny four legged thing or large four legged thing, maybe with different types of phallic faces. I...don't mean to sound negative, but the truth is that it could have been a game about ten planets and you would have the same sense of discovery. Or that's how I felt.

    I still think it could be fun to play, I just feel like if I'm gonna grind something out I'd rather play Destiny with friends and share the repetition.

    Try it when it's cheap, it is still too expensive for what is offered.

    Thanks for the heads-up. I think the high initial price point for this game was always a problem.

    you guys know there are mods for this game yeah?
    for PC users of course.

    there's some pretty interesting stuff I've been trying out in a new playthrough.
    gives you complete control of your spaceship for starters. so no more autopilot; now you can skim across the water inches away or glide over the top of mountains as close as can scrape by. also bypasses a lot of the repetitive/grindy aspects. really enhances the visuals. makes everything look much more natural. adds some gameplay that was missing from those fancy trailers like the robotic 'Walkers' and dinosaurs and dense, lush forests. it makes the game much more like what it should have been. there's even a mod that increases the amount of space traffic and freighters and the appearance of raiders, which means more opportunities for dogfights or to simply encounter other lifeforms to work with. they're also trying to increase the variety of available ships.

    it is what it is. at least with the PC you still got options.

    Stunning images. No doubt. I'm sure I am registered with the Nexus mods site.

    I haven't yet. A friend has the PS4 version and I'm looking forward to at least trying the game on the console.

    As for me buying it on PC, from what I know, I wouldn't unless Steam has a 75-90% discount on the price.

    I still get the impression that, despite the addition of a creative mode, it doesn't have enough game to hold an audience for a long period of time and possibly has very limited replay value.
