No Man's Sky

Man check this trailer that premiered for some new game at the VGX awards:

http://www.gametrailers.com/videos/3hpq ... re-trailer

Looks similar to that kind of space/universe exploration game we were discussing in the Star Citizen thread. Where's WW/Batman? He'd horn on this i think

Where you reading its consoles only? I dont see that.

This is like my ideal kind of space game- being able to land/explore, the universe full of interesting locations etc. Not this specific game - this might be lame, who knows, but the idea behind it, i love that.;

heard from a.. not so reliable source that the team had trouble releasing joe danger on steam and will be targeting xbone and ps4 only, very happy to be wrong

from the looks of it voxel engine might have trouble on consoles but hey they released minecraft for the 360 and 'next gen' might be able to handle more

arent all trailers cut together on the finest hardware possible with the highest res textures available cranking dat bloom dial up to maximum


'all footage shot in-game' is slowly losing its validity

Yeah nah, I didn't buy an xbone for KI and that game looks fucking amazing in every way. This looks interesting but nothing is worth shilling out $500 for one of these glorified iphones.

No Man’s Sky rps just had a speak to the devs

http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2013/12 ... -mans-sky/
what realy got me even more interested was this comment

"Every player in No Man’s Sky will begin their life somewhere along the edge of a galaxy. Everything in the trailer takes place in a single solar system near the galaxy’s edge and, red grass aside, on Earth-like planets. “It helps to ground people and I think if we hadn’t shown that, people would go, ‘what the fuck?’” Sean Murray, lead developer on No Man’s Sky, is choosing his words carefully. “It’s quite weird to see a thing that isn’t a fish, in the water. And so we have grounded the trailer in a particular solar system that kind of makes sense for people"

This is the first game I've seen in years that gives me a palpable thrill of anticipation, procedural generation! in space!

As someone in that rps comments says, 'hope is the first step to disappointment' ...

the trailer was cut on dev machines
the devs dont have enough money to splurge on pre rendered stuff

Apparently one of them sold his house so they wouldnt run out of money for the project :shock:

There's probably far more chance of it being shit (ala X stillbirth) than being good, BUT here's hoping it's great

Procedural space as a feature would probably sell it hard enough to keep a roof over that dudes head at the very least - props for effort sorta deal

Can you really fly from the planet surface to space?

I have never see a game being able to actually do that...
