My friend bought, played, and sold it in the past few days.
“No good?” I asked.
“Too good,” he replied.
Since there are no clear milestones, goals, etc. (e.g. mini-bosses, etc) for him, he would just play and play and play. Basically checked out for a few days straight. Just too dangerous for a compulsive explorer type to deal with.
The procedural creatures are pretty amazing. I’m not a fan of the single-biome-planet implementation, but there’s still a lot of great stuff in this game.22/08/2016 at 04:33 #47173darthfozzywigParticipant
I had more hands-on time with it yesterday, and I think the creatures are still the most compelling part of it. If you’re a completionist, you may find yourself exploring forever happily…but perpetually unsatisfied. I can see myself getting bored by the sameness of each experience, however.
What this is currently missing is the Minecraft ability to modify your environment. NMS requires you to find and harvest resources, but they are essentially just fuel or money. Minecraft is about building and changing worlds, which opens up endless choices for players. If they could bring that quality to NMS, it would be amazing.
Still, NMS was an 8-man team, so this game is still a remarkable achievement. It’s just not a complete game to me.25/05/2022 at 17:05 #173601dima zimbalParticipant
maybe there are those who love minecraft, I wanted to share with you not a bad community where there are a lot of mods, we can play together https://99minecraft.com/mods/just-another-better-barrel-attempt-mod-1-7-10/25/05/2022 at 17:27 #173602Mike HeaddenParticipant
919 hours in game according to Steam. Haven’t played since September last year. I had a lot of fun with it but, having built several massive bases, with my capital ship having a full complement of top rated frigates and with no-one irl to play with or even compare note with I went off to play Valheim instead. Hitting the same problem in Valheim I’m now playing Satisfactory, where at least I have a friend who is also playing. We are however both playing solo games.
I’d recommend all three, nontheless, if you like survival/ crafting type games.

I played the heck out the Valheim. Waiting for there to be more content and fleshing out of the unfinished biomes. I can tell you that damn dragon is HARD to kill when you have 4 or more people attacking it!
Thinking about upgrading my computer so I can play Star Citizen. I enjoy playing with a group of people, but there has to be a “point” to the game. Day Z is a lot of fun with friends, but there’s nothing to really DO. This last weekend 5 of us played State Of Decay 2 as multiplayer and that was a nice fun experience. That’d be a good solo game too.
I’d love to play some games with other TWW peeps. Time difference would make it tough on week days as I’m -6GMT (US Central Standard Time) but I play Squad with a bloke in Coventry (IIRC, and he’s a night owl).
Maybe we should make a list of multiplayer games that members play?

I have played No Man’s Sky for a while, almost since it came out. It is quite good fun, the procedural generation is well done. It is fairly easy to get the hang most of the actual mechanics. I thought the quest was a bit so-so, but my eldest really enjoyed it. I think starting has become a little easier over time, I think they tweaked the procedural generation to reduce the chances of you starting on a planet that has aggressive carnivores running around whilst you are trying to rebuild your ship and a weapon! The creatures are often very well done, and although I don’t normally take in-game pics, I did actually take one of my avatar riding some tiger-ish creature whilst hunting…Space combat was very easy early on but I think they have made it a little harder over time. Anyway, it is a good £-time investment if that makes a difference to you.
