No Mans Sky Gets Huge Patch update


[link to this post]
 
Point is who cares, you blew it at the release stage and the game Bombed Big time,i think i got sick of it within 30 minutes and have never been so disappointed in a game with that much hype in years, people rarely revisit a broken game.

Patch Notes for those actually interested.

No Man’s Sky was indeed a huge blunder after releasing earlier this year in August. Mr. Sean Murray, the Lead Designer of the game played a huge role in the marketing of the game and showing off what the game had to offer.





After the launch of the title, Mr. Sean Murray was astonished by the number of players boarding on onto Hello Games latest release and was definitely not expecting as many players to be hyped about No Man’s Sky. After releasing on the PlayStation 4 and PC, it didn’t take long for gamers to turn up a backlash on Hello Games. According to gamers, gamers pointed out that a lot of the features were missing in the game that Mr. Sean Murray promised which really turned off many gamers. Many of these gamers opted for Steam Refunds after the whole debacle and Mr.Sean Murray went on a huge Twitter strike for almost two months. Youtuber AngryJoeShow did exactly what many gamers felt at the launch of the game and gave NMS 5/10. Here’s the full video.



Mr Sean Murray finally came back to his account announcing a huge update for NMS and promises to meet the expectations of gamers this time with Patch 1.1. Here’s the update log.

It pays not to believe the hype and wait a while. Look at the hype for UC4. I'm glad I didn't buy that

Life..... It's just a game

Haven't read all that crazy but I should make the effort and give the game another go. Biggest problem though is the lack of story, if they added that into the beautiful universe they have created then it would be an amazing game.
