    A space sandbox game that has probably years worth of gameplay.

    I love it. Very addicting. And quite a smart game. Very fun.
    May the force be with you.
  • Is it just me or are the graphics awful? I love the game but the graphics and frame rate for me are just really bad to the eyes. I see big streamers playing but they look like they're playing an entirely different looking game. I know I should have waited for the PC edition since that one is 60 fps compared to the PS4's 30 but I was so excited.

  • I ran around for hours last night just scanning flora and fauna and learning alien words. What is this game? Its awesome haha. Took me a good minute to understand what I was doing, but I love the survival mixed with exploration, makes sense to me. Plus I'm assuming we get upgrades for our suits and stuff so we don't have to recharge as often and what not. Plus inventory slots. I need inventory slots. All and all I love it. Although I may not be on BF for a month or 2 now. :/

  • I'm curious, how big is the installed file size for NMS if you buy the disc version? Is it like 50 GB? PS4. Thanks. So far the reviews here make me want to play it.

    3.67gb believe it or not.

    Again, personally I love it. But don't expect it to be a fast paced multiplayer game.

    It's like Star Trek, yet you are on your own. So far it's a lot of fun :-)

  • To those playing it I know that it is rare to find another player, but is there a completely offline mode for when your Internet is bad?

    Actually while I was playing, my internet went out. (Didn't realized until I looked at my phone). The gameplay was not affected at all. I just kept exploring. ^_^

    Obviously not as good as Battlefront's graphics, but still pleasing graphics

    Yea for sure! The odds of seeing other peoples discoveries are not as rare. But actually seeing another person is rare.

    I heard one of the devs say there was a strong filter for what you can name things. I'm just curious as to whether or not it's ridiculously strong or it just filters out all the childish things your standard 4chan user would name them.

  • Two people have already met, but they couldn't see each other, hence why you can pause the game

    I thought it was just because so many people were playing the game and it would be fixed?

    Based on a video on IGN, you can't name things with "bag" at the end.

    Ex: Dirtbag, Slimebag.

    It's a very niche game. So if you like this sort of thing, you'll love the game.

    The ONLY thing so far that I dislike is the fact that the sprint button is the same as the Melee button for battlefront. Lol it gets crazy when I switch back to battlefront.

    I think it looks super cool, but I've heard it's got a couple weird little quirks. Nothing that would keep me from buying it though, if I had enough money to buy whatever game at will lol.

    Nice! I've found a planet I really really like.. And I have stayed here trying to discover all the species.


    Question..

    Does anyone know if previous suit upgrades become redundant with a higher level upgrade?

    WARNING* If you purchase a new ship while in your first system, after already using the antimatter in your previous ship, you will be left in a predicament.

    Didn't feel ready to continue the tutorial missions and travel to a new system yet, but I already used the antimatter given to me to create the warp cell, and used the warp cell to charge my hyperdrive. I wanted a new ship first so I saved up the units and purchased one. Well the hyperdrive in the new ship isn't charged and I don't think there is any sure fire or easy way to obtain new antimatter.

    A solution online says I may get the opportunity to purchase one from a vendor visiting the station, but its no guarantee. Until I find more antimatter I'm stranded in my first system. Didn't want anyone else to end up in the situation.

    The combat being boring as of now wouldn't bother me since that's not really what I was looking for anyways. But the idea that there are no civilizations is really a bummer. I hope its not true but given the style of the game and the way it generates that just might be the case. I could see it. That would take a lot of the joy out of it for me. How are they gonna have space stations and technology but no civilization? Who built all the stuff then? where are the ordinary citizens. I would even accept a abandoned city somewhere just to show that there at least was a civilization. We shall see. I'm not gonna let it ruin my fun just yet.
