No Man's Sky
« on: December 06, 2014, 10:56:37 PM »
I'm really looking forward to No Mans Sky.

18 quintillion possible planets. To put that into some kind of perspective, if a new planet was discovered every second, it'd take 585 billion years before they're all discovered.

It's an MMO. When you start the game for the first time, your spawned onto your own planet, a planet that has not yet been discovered.

If you discover a new planet, you're credited with that discovery and everyone who visits that planet later will see your name.

Below is a good discussion on what's know about the game so far:

I think people will know from the start, but I suspect it won't be an mmo in the traditonal sense, in that the universe is so large you could play for days without seeing another player..

This is a unique game.

1. It is more ambitious than anything ever attempted before by any games company in history. And the team is only 6 people.
2. It is possibly a small glimpse into the future of gaming in that procedural generation will take over from hand crafted 'worlds'.

I wish them success. But they have taken a rather large bite.

No Man's Sky and Elite are the same core game in more ways than most might realise, particularly the procedural part. No Man's Sky is the modern equivalent with all the benefits modern technology brings, much bigger universe, mmo, beautiful, diverse, detailed planets you can actually land on, explore and extract resources from, near infinite variety, etc.

no man's sky is a little of what I expected out of destiny when it was first announced, very disappointed with destiny now, it is incredible how 6 people can create a game like this! Wonder how long they spent on it.

ambitious is usually a word used to describe broken games... I hope this one turns out okay.

its also often used when a game isn't as good as the concept sounds

Only if it is to describe "in despite of" type type articles... such as "He made an ambitious attempt to win the race but came in last."
In which case it is pointing out that while ambitious, it still failed. Ambition towards great things is what drives people to success as well as all too common failure. You must have ambition to attempt any venture. Describing a game as ambitious is not by any means saying it is not a good game.. that's idiotic.

I never said ambitious means bad. I'm saying that its a red flag for me when people start calling it "ambitious", as "ambitious" games rarely live up to their promise
