    No Man's Sky

    Dundundudndudndudnddudndunndundunnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn nn

    NO MAN'S SKY!

    Looks like amazing shit! Looks like it could be a hella a game. A game changer, if you will.

    I mean, I didn't think we were here yet, technologically. My brain can't comprehend coding and graphics engines and math; they may as well be as black magic wizardry to me. I didn't think we were at the point where we could have worlds... as big as these guys say their worlds are gonna be.... and not just worlds, but entire solar systems? And galaxies?! In one game?! I didn't realize we were anywhere close to that kind of technology.

    But nevertheless, here it is.



    And all of that is apparently captured from within the game. They had to find that planet within the game to capture the footage.

    The lead developer says things in interviews like, how bored he is of the same type of game, how sci fi for a lot of games seems to only mean guns in a futuristic setting, how he hates games that hold your hand, and compares his own game to something more like Minecraft.

    Like, I'm excited. It looks gorgeous. I can't believe there's a whole galaxy (or did they say universe?), with planets apparently so big that even if ya had millions of human players on one planet they'd still have a hard time finding each other. Apparently.

    Maybe its all bullshit. Maybe its Peter Molyneux x 1000.

    Allow me to spare you the suspense.
    It will deliver in a few areas, but overall, it will be a big disappointment.

    remember how everyone was jazzed as FUCK about Fable back in 2002 or whatever? "u will be able to literally do ANYTHING!" and then they got the game and it was just a regular video game. except worse bcuz the hype was that you could do anything and yet there were still invisible walls in the fucking forest and shit, haha.

    This game is different. Surely No Man's Sky is one of the signs of the coming Singularity.

    Watching the video, I could almost taste the pre-stirrings of immortality.

    i did read somewhere about this game, they apparently did something pretty cool, like, in order to generate all this strange wildlife, they basically did like what NBA Live was doing in 1998 with the create-a-player option. They used sliders for height and skin color and shit...and this game does that. Like, for instance, if the slider is cranked down, you'll get a little housecat, but if it's cranked up, you'll get a giant tiger beast. pretty cool
