Yeah, it's probably all about price we paid for a game. I paid $79CAD. Same price as Uncharted4, Tomb raider etc...

@apella I very rarely buy games near release date as I like to soak up the reviews and feedback. Nothing worse then dropping a load of money on something I don't like

It's quite interesting reading all the positivity for this game in the beginning of the thread and then reading the ending and seeing all the disappointment. I just got done playing an hour of this game and I can say that I had a blast with it. Bought if for 18 euros which is why I decided to try it now. I'm certainly glad that I didn't buy it at launch because even though this game looks grand in scale, it's still a grind fest through and through and I doubt it will keep my attention for long. But it feels good to play a game that isn't overwhelming with quests, collectibles and side things in general. It's pretty fun as a chill game more or less.

Also, gotta love looking at the update history for this game. Versions 1.01 to 1.09 are all bug fixes, 1.10 I'm guessing was the Foundation Update even though it doesn't say it outright. Then versions 1.11 to 1.19 are all bug fixes again and 1.20 is the new Pathfinder update and then it continues on with more bug fixes, lol. If they are still fixing bugs 8 months after the game launched then I feel really sorry for the people who played this at launch in its original state. :/

Edit: And yes, I took a pause from Persona 5 to play No Man's Sky. I'm a horrible person.

Is this game worth getting now? I remember reading that it was pretty bare bones at launch but have no clue how it's evolved since. I recently bought a PS4 so I wanted to check and see. Thanks!

I got the game on sale after the Foundation Update and stopped playing once finished the "main story". I started a new game few days ago, after the Atlas Update and the patch 1.35. The game now is really different from what it was at launch and considering that it's very cheap I finally feel free to suggest it to everyone.

Praise the Sun, and Mario too.

So are we getting together after the update or what?

Annoyingly I will be without Internet for a while from next week once I'm in my new place, but I'd like to have a session once I'm up and running.

How is the update?

I won't get chance to play it for a week or so. Would be nice to hear what you guys think.

Downloading it right now. Will be playing it tomorrow in the afternoon.

I’m wondering if we have some early impressions yet. I haven’t got around to it, and I’m waiting to hear before I relegate my current games to the “sidelog” in favor of NEXT if the buzz is positive. The lack of posts perhaps means either A) everyone is as busy as I am and hasn’t had time to delve into it, B) the update is so good that no one wants to peel themselves away from their PS4 long enough to post thoughts, or C) it is so bad and/or broken that no one has spent enough time on it to comment.

@Th3solution I haven't played a lot of the original NMS, but I still feel quite a difference after the update.
The game generally looks better and feels more mature. Although the games seems to be a bit more difficult at its base level, where the crafting got a bit more complex (e.g. refueling the aircraft takes more work now). But all in all it has a more rewarding effect in my opinion. Also base building feels more rewarding.
On the PS4 unfortunately I experience a crash every few minutes, so I am playing on my Xbox now.

I have not tried Multiplayer though, since I am currently just focused on getting as far as quick as possible.
I feel the game is definitely more fun now. I like the third-person view, which to me feels more immersive right now. The universe also feels more lively, as they improved the stations, added more aliens to them and made them more spacious, like little social hubs that are perfect to have various players join you there.
I really don't know how to describe it. It just feels like a more complete and coherent game now.

@tatsumi Thank you for those thoughts! Exactly what I was wondering. It makes me a little more excited to try it, but you’re now the second person who has mentioned the PS4 crashes. @MattyHammo posted that deleting your game save file fixes the crashes, but that doesn’t sound enticing at all. I’m pretty skeptical to try it if it’s gonna crash relentlessly. Maybe I’ll wait for a patch.

@Th3solution Honestly, I think I am a couple of updates behind now.

I won't start a discussion on the merits of NMS at release (I got what I expected, and enjoyed it) - but even after the base and land vehicle update, I really felt like I was playing something quite different. Different enough that it put me off playing.

My point is, with NEXT, I think I will just delete my save and start again.

@KALofKRYPTON Yeah, the more I read about the changes, the more I suspect I might have to start over. Apparently the blueprints and elements aren’t even necessarily the same anymore. As a trophy hunter of sorts, that hurts my heart, since as I recall the trophies are all cumulative types of things (discover so many plants and animals, so many alien words, walk so many steps, etc) C’est la vie.

@Th3solution The strange thing is, they apparently included a tutorial for some of the new stuff, but you only get that tutorial when you start over. So to be able to continue my game I had to look up on the internet wiki's how a lot of the basics work.

I also lost kind of random things here and there. I kept all the words I learned for the Gek, but the words in other languages my character forgot about. And the game doesn't even try telling you what's up. And this ties into my main complaint against this game.

Sure, there isn't a lot of hand holding, which I like in most games, but this game is way too convoluted (also thanks to the updates) for any of it. My primary reaction when I need something built is to open the internet browser on my phone to look up how something needs to be done. Often when you're presented with a choice it feels like someone tells you to pick a card without telling what any of the cards mean.

The game is all about management, but management isn't fun when you have no idea which way you need to be headed. Playing without guide often feels like playing poker with a deck of which you don't know what cards are in them.
