Watch Hello Games' Sean Murray play an hour of No Man's Sky

nms.jpg

Remember when Sean Murray told everyone to stop watching early streams and discover things for yourself instead? Well he's just done an hour of livestreaming, talking us through the basic tasks you'll be doing in-game. 

Are you playing yet? Come and help us create the best No Man's Sky PC Review.

In the archived livestream, Murray walks us through a cave network and talks excitedly about how the lights never go off, he finds his character's grave and retrieves his gear Dark Souls-style, he talks us through trading at a space station and more. 

You can tell he's really passionate about the game from how animated and enthusiastic he is, even if the art director next to him stays completely silent almost throughout. Honestly, he's like a hostage or something. 

We get a look at a bit of everything in the video, including combat and even a bit of mid-game stuff when Murray loads up another save, so obviously don't watch if you're worried about spoilers. Personally, I wouldn't be, since, you know, it's all procedural and you will see stuff that's completely different.

Here's the stream:

I hope for nothing but success for these guys. It's easy to see this game is a passion project, which at one point in time, nearly every video game was. Cannot wait to play.

Sadly it appears this game is a PS4 port. Guess we'll just have to wait another 5-10 years before the proven liar Chris Roberts releases a REAL game (aka PC only).

There are many space games out there for you to choose from though, right? Even ones with jet fighters if you like that, since 99 per cent of them are exactly that. Though this also might give pause for thought, since it was the pollution of ubiquity (near identical games) that killed off the genre in the first place.

It's one of the reasons I encourage ingenuity, invention, and innovation in this space. If there isn't, I just feel the genre is going to go away again. Once again not having added anything interesting.

"Don't ruin the game for yourself....... Unless you are on PC were I will rub in the fact that we delayed the game 3 days by trying to ruin it for you!"

Nahhh they can feck off, lost all interest in the game now.

I haven't seen an actual battle play out, but what I have viewed seems to almost have a zen-truck-simulator feel to it

It reminds me of a 3D Starbound with many billions times the grind (with no way of customising anything through mods), none of the levels (the best bits). On top of that, it has an archaic jet fighter to fly around in.

Hm. Nope. Fine for those who like it, I guess, even though those people have thousands of games to choose from at this point (the ubiquity is cloying). But I think my original assessment of the game still stands. Interesting looking worlds and animals, but the everything else part makes it not worth bothering.

Perhaps if they'd had an interesting and actually futuristic ship, along with mods to allow customisation of things (such as the grind), and some actual gameplay (like Starbound's levels), it'd be okay. They don't.

It just looks like a bad Starbound knock off because of that, not taking any of the best bits of what it's inspired by, which is unfortunate.
