No Man’s Sky

Garbage games of 2016

Charlie and Tom have given you their highlights of 2016, now it’s time to look over the lowest of the lowlights. Unlike last year, we thought we’d collaborate on this list so that it doesn’t get too subjective based on one person’s tastes. Also it’s worth noting, a few games on here we genuinely enjoyed parts of, but controversy has left them on the scrap heap of the ...[Read More]

No Man’s Sky didn’t lie according to Advertising Standards Authority

An independent advertising regulator, the British Advertising Standards Authority (ASA), have come out and said Hello Games didn’t exaggerate in their advertising of No Man’s Sky on the Steam marketplace.  The ASA, who published their findings online, investigated the developers following 23 complaints of false advertising for the PC version of No Man’s Sky following its launch i...[Read More]

No Man’s Sky gets new modes and base building in new update

Nine weeks after the last update to No Man’s Sky, developer Hello Games has released what they have dubbed “The Foundation Update”, bringing a long list of changes to the game. Most notably it brings the previously hinted ability to build your own home bases on planets, as well as a couple new gameplay modes. But when I say a long list, I mean a long list; and if you want to read...[Read More]

No Man’s Sky players are getting refunds regardless of time played

It is safe to say that No Man’s Sky has disappointed a lot of people. Players have suffered many technical woes on both the Playstation 4 and PC versions. A long list of features hinted at/outright confirmed by developer Hello Games prior to launch were missing from the game. And even despite all that, the game that was shipped was fairly disappointing in its ow...[Read More]

The Sunny Side of No Man’s Sky

So, after years of what has to be some of the strongest hype we’ve seen in a very long time, further enhanced by a couple of delays and a general premise that promised so, so much, No Man’s Sky has dropped. As many may have expected (myself included), the game didn’t quite live up to the lofty ambitions of its creators, and importantly, the hopes of the fans. Let’s face it,...[Read More]

No Man’s inconsistencies

So No Man’s Sky is a game, right? We can agree on that? In my review I was pretty meh on the whole thing. It has a lot going for it, but it’s so bogged down by questionable design choices that it suffers from tedious gameplay and a lacklustre experience, in my opinion at least. Part of the reason I was so underwhelmed is due to the sheer ball crushing amount of hype that clung to this ...[Read More]

No Man’s Sky review: Ground control to major disappointment

Reviewed on: PS4. Copy supplied by publisher. In my 12 hours of game time I’ve found No Man’s Sky to be equal parts compelling and boring, some aspects of it are amazing, and others are a galactic snore fest. Arguably the sheer amount of hype after years of anticipation, mixed with the lack of any concrete info in the build up, let minds run wild as to what No Man’s Sky could be....[Read More]

When No Man’s Sky turns against you

I still can’t decide if I like No Man’s Sky. There’s so much I don’t like about it, like how ship/spacesuit upgrades take away from storage space, and yet I’m still compelled to continue playing it. On the whole, I’m enjoying hopping from procedurally generated world to procedurally generated world, having a gander at the weird creatures and landscapes and then ...[Read More]

No Man’s Sky is a hoarder’s nightmare

So No Man’s Sky is finally out, and we can finally see what you actually do in the game and it pretty much boils down to difficult hoarding. So far I’ve had mixed feelings about it, and to be clear this isn’t a review, just an ode to my fellow hoarders and OCD riddled gamers. It turns out that once we manage to push out into the universe and discover alien planets, most of what we will be doing is...[Read More]

No Man’s Sky pre-launch patch increases galaxy sizes tenfold

If you’ve been on the internet in the past week, you’ll know that everyone is excited for the much anticipated No Man’s Sky to be in our hands come Wednesday (Australian time). The hype intensified after someone spent $1302.95US to get an early copy to avoid spoilers from community forums come the launch, promptly began uploading gameplay videos and impressions to community forum...[Read More]

Sean Murray from Hello Games stated via PlayStation’s blog “as we approached our final deadlines, we realised that some key moments needed extra polish to bring them up to...[Read More]

“The problem with being a ‘Space-Dick’ is…” – 21 minutes of No Man’s Sky

Hello Games’ No Man’s Sky is pretty much right around the corner. After several years of hype, the game will finally launch on Playstation 4 and PC on June 21 and June 23 respectively. Since its announcement it has been one of the most interesting games on the horizon, boasting a game world of 18,446,744,073,709,551,616 (18.4 quintillion) planets that are generated mathematically to cr...[Read More]
