ps4 No Man's Sky

Recommended Posts

Got the game, I don't think it likes me.

First planet I spawn on I'm underwater on an ice planet and freeze to death. Decide to install the update.

finally make it to a space station, die and the update is ready.

install update and now my grave is on the other side of a door that needs an atlas thingo.

Quite addictive though, enjoying it so far.

I finally found a planet that's not trying to kill me either by acid rain, boiling temps, toxic air, hungry animals or psychotic sentinels which go mental at me even if I look at a plutonium rock. 

Going to make the most of it and earn some cash here for a bigger ship.

I know right, sentinels are a touchy bunch, although I just got chased across a planet by killer crabs. That was an interesting site for the rest of the Gek I'm sure

I found a planet which was littered with grav balls, couldn't walk more than 100m without finding another one but the sentinels there were insane. They would attack on sight whether I was collecting anything or not.

Encountered a game breaking bug where the game crashes every time I warp. Gonna have to restart ?

I get the same problem on PS4 and have done since the first time I warped. I was saving at a space station before each warp (which is a pain when you have fuel for 5 consecutive warps and plenty of warp drives to keep going).

 

I enjoyed this for the first few hours while I was discovering things. I got bored of it after a while since everything's the same. I kept playing just to see how far I could get before giving up. Expanded my inventory to 30 and ship to 35 slots, but even that fills up with junk pretty quickly. I made it a fair way, but gave up without reaching the center of the galaxy.

Can't argue with the trailer however the mods starting to coming out now are certainly showing what the game is capable of. The PC version should be ok but the PS4 version is going to be the same for quite a while yet.

Anyone played this since the "foundation" update? I hear it's much better now. It's also $20 cheaper, so I was considering scooping it up.

I have it, I enjoy the game but no, have not played it in like a few months. I played for a lot of hours when it was released, went through a couple of galaxy centers and haven't played since. Got bored with it... And the foundation update it didn't make me curious one bit. I'm not into minecraft and also, what's the point in having a base if there isn't anyone around to play with? :/

I've been playing it, but pretty bored with it lately. Made a base with a nice size pearl farm. It makes a lot of units, but nothing to buy except ships and freighters.

Good to know I can at least build a base that can produce something to sell, I was unaware of that, I could actually buy a better ship, I have almost all slots on it but now they are asking me for 100+ millions for them :/

My base has two farms. 100-plant pearl farm that can generate about 2.8m every 22 minutes, and then an 85-plant lube farm that can make 2m every 6 minutes. But that also makes the game boring. No more need for mining, so no more need for all the exploring. I'm hoping for another update soon.

I've been playing this quite a but since the latest update and it has made the game a lot more fun and "game like", in that it has a story to follow.  I started a new game and got through all the tutorial stuff much quicker than when the game was new.  Flying is much more fun now too, especially on planets, they have given full control to you now so you can dive down into canyons and such.  Space combat also seems much more hard, but I'm still in my starting ship so I'm probably pretty weak.  @Squirrel and @grjkie I believe you were asking about this the other day, I think it's worth playing this again, there's loads of stuff I've not mentioned because I haven't done any of it yet, farming, base building, buying a freighter, land deformation.  I believe I'm going to put a lot more time into this now than at launch.

Now here are some pretty pictures I've taken on my adventures.

I'm definitely going back to this game once I'm done with Zelda. 

Flying on a planet was a PITA si it's pretty cool if they patched it. 

What do you mean there's a story to follow now? The goal always was to reach the center of the universe right?

Yeah, apparently it's about 30 hours of story about another guy who's the same race as you, I haven't done much of it though.

I'm wondering if I should start over. I wasn't very far in the story. Only done 3 or 4 light jumps :lol:

I was about the same as Fido. Lots of random exploring but not really got anywhere. Briefly looked at the foundation update but may have a look again. 

Does anyone know if the PC and PS4 users are in the same universe?

just reached the 'center' of the galaxy this afternoon, only to be spitted out into a 'new' galaxy.. miraculously filled with the notorious suicidal 'god'atlas being worshipped by the familiar warrior'slugs', merchant'birds' and scientist'robots'. was quite the anticlimax tbh.

tips: collect all your stuff from your base and take it with u in your ship before entering the new 'universe', i lost all mine at my old base (couldnt go back anymore)

    also bring plenty of all the stuff needed to install ur tech, because most will be broken when arriving in new universe

My guess is you dont play this anymore. I just found out about it. What I find interesting is being able to visit all those planets. I don't want to do anything but explore. When you have a moment can you share with me if you think just getting it to check out the worlds is worth it. Thanks bro.

I would say so.  I just reinstalled it the other day and it’s still thrilling warping into a new system and seeing the planets around you, no one else has ever been there.  There is a new big update coming soon apparently so I think it is worth it, even if all you want to do is explore.  

Also playing it in cinematic mode with the PSVR is pretty incredible, it’s a gorgeous game.

There is a rumor that this summers " big" update for this game is going to finally include a real MP mode . Someone did some data mining and found some code that they claim basically confirms it. https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DdRy3ChV0AE7lyq.jpg we will see but it would add a nice element to the game i feel.

Yeah me too . I have read some people enjoy playing it on their VR with it set on cinematic view . Ive not tried it but do want to . Prob as close as one can get until they add it. I do think they might add that in the future though.

I was going to get this when my dog began feeling sick. Thankfully he is feeling better and this would be a perfect time to play this as I need something to just walk around and explore the cosmos.

      DiRT 4 came out on PS4 in June 2017 and it's a rally game different from it's predecessor DiRT Rally. It caters more to players not very familiar with rallying or just looking for a casual rally experience (much like what you could find from DiRT 3), but has plenty of different modes and gameplay improvements to make it fun for anyone.
      [DiRT 4 is on sale on the US PS Store for $14.99 until May 22!
      DiRT 4 is currently on sale on the UK and EU PS Store for a mere £24 for PS Plus members until 23/11/17 11:59pm]
      Main features of DiRT 4:
      There's a choice between Arcade and Simulation handling mechanics and one can easily switch between the two at any time between rally events should they wish to do so. The stage rallies have a feature called "Your Stage" that creates custom rally stages using certain settings and parameters chosen by the player or generated randomly, which means that there's a huge amount of partly similar (stages are made of bits and pieces and the same pieces show up in different parts of different custom stages), but unique rally stages in the game. There's a rich progressive singleplayer career mode, an optional fun trial mode "joyride" (returning from DiRT 3), a fully customisable lobby multiplayer mode "jam session" for all the available rally types, a competitive stage rally MP mode "Pro Tour", daily/weekly/monthly events with leaderboards & big cash rewards, and a solo practice session where you can hone your skills with any car you want. You can also build your own team, pick sponsors, create your team livery and use your personal rally cars in almost every game mode. There's plenty of livery and sponsor options as well as enough space in your garage for over 100 vehicles (after a few upgrades). Loan cars are available for use at all times if you want to try the cars out before you buy a personal one. Earning cash is a much faster process than it is in DiRT Rally, with also more vehicles and team facilities to spend it on. DiRT 4 also has a pretty damn good soundtrack for a rally game.
       
      Available Rally Types and Locations:
      Stage Rally, Historic Rally:
      Fitzroy, Australia Tarragona, Spain Värmland, Sweden Michigan, USA Powys, Wales Footage: all the outrageous things that can happen in one rally stage:
       
      Rallycross:
      Lydden Hill, England Höljes, Sweden Hell, Norway Montalegre, Portugal Lohéac, France  
      Landrush (stadium truck/buggy racing):
      California, USA Nevada, USA Baja, Mexico Footage: buggy racing:
       
      Landrush vehicles: Speedcar Xtrem (crosscart), Larock 2XR Buggy, Jackson Pro-Truck 2, Jackson Pro-Truck 4
       
      Watch more videos from my DiRT 4 Playlist on YouTube here: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL3Mx-66MNeVZ1iE_PCy4V70ZAZeiqYIPw
       
      Personally, I love both DiRT 4, which is an immensely fun high-quality rally game, and DiRT Rally, which offers tons of enjoyment through a very authentic rally simulation. I continue to play both and would love to play either with any of you from time to time if you have or decide to get either DiRT game.

      [ UPDATED: DiRT Rally is on sale on the UK/EU PS Store for £11.99 (or the € equivalent) until May 24 & on the US PS Store for $11.99 (or $13.99 for the VR Bundle) until May 22! ]
       
      "DiRT Rally is the most authentic, challenging and thrilling rally game ever made, road-tested over 80 million miles by the DiRT community. It captures the essence of what makes rally unique like no other game: that white knuckle feeling of racing on the edge; trying to remain in control of your emotions as you hurtle along dangerous, undulating roads at breakneck speed, aiming to squeeze everything out of your car whilst knowing that one crash could irreparably harm your stage time.
      It’s the ultimate test of a driver’s skill, and the ultimate in high risk, high reward gameplay.
      The first time you play DiRT Rally may be a little daunting. Not many drivers finish their first race without a crash, and even fewer will win their first event. The game is designed from the ground up to be an authentic simulation of real world rally. The good news for you is, real world driving techniques are applicable to every section of every stage in the game.
      A better understanding of rally driving techniques will lead you to become naturally faster as you gain confidence and understanding of the car you are driving and the surfaces that you are driving on. It is much easier to add speed to a good technique."
      Couldn't have said it better myself. Long story short: DiRT Rallly is probably the best rally racing simulation game out there. Brilliant mechanics and physics, beautiful graphics, great collection of iconic rally cars of past and present, plenty of different locations and game modes. Even the best racers can often make mistakes in rally and that's the beauty of the sport.
       
      Available Rally Types:
      Rally
      Hillclimb
      Rallycross
       
      Game Modes:
      Championships (SP career)
      "Start out at the bottom and work your way to the top of the rally world. Hire a crew chief and engineers to build your competitive edge as you race the most iconic cars from rally history across the rally, hillclimb and rallycross disciplines."
       
      Online Events
      "Take on the DiRT Rally community via Daily, Weekly and Monthly RaceNet challenges to earn in-game currency rewards or take to the track in online multiplayer rallycross races."
      The online challenges are a great way to try out different vehicles in different locations and in different conditions.
       
      Leagues
      "Get together with friends and run your very own racing league, or join an existing one within the vibrant DiRT Rally community. You can join as many leagues as you like and they are fully customisable all the way down to the weather conditions."
      This is the mode we could make the most use of on the crew scale, organise crew rally championships.
      XDBX DiRT Rally League: https://www.dirtgame.com/leagues/league/102999/xdbx-casual
       
       
      Locations: Monaco, Wales, Germany, Finland, Sweden, Greece, England (RX), Norway (RX), USA (Hillclimb)
       
      Some iconic cars from the game: Mini Cooper S, Renault Alpine A110, Ford Escort MK II, Lancia Stratos, Ford Sierra Cosworth RS500, Audi Sport quattro Rallye, Peugeot 205 T16 Evo 2, Subaru Impreza 2001, Ford Focus RS Rally 2001, Mitsubishi Lancer Evo X, Volkswagen Polo Rally (2010s), Peugeot 208 T16 Pikes Peak, Audi Sport quattro S1 PP
       
      Some official hints and tips for the game: https://www.dirtgame.com/uk/about#hints_tips
      The only thing I personally kind of dislike about the game is that you can't drive a specific rally car unless you've purchased it and that process can take a lot of time and trial & error, because earning money is rather slow in the beginning and you don't really know which car suits you best until you've bought them and tried them out. It's a very small issue overall, though.
       
      Verdict: DiRT Rally is a must-have for any true rally fan and rally simulation enthusiast, but if you're a casual gamer and/or mainly an arcade racer just looking to try out rally racing for a change, you should look into getting DiRT 4 instead. There is nothing arcade-y about this DiRT game - it's all about simulating the real thing.
       
      I'm already running an XDBX league in DiRT Rally, so if you have the game, do let me know! Skill level doesn't matter at all, just looking at having a fun time together!
       
       
      Here's a taste of what the game is like:
