Remember we reported on the user who got No Man’s Sky early and streamed it? He’s now taken to Reddit to write up quite a thorough report of his thoughts.
Here’s a very brief summary but you can read his full report below.
- He’s done a lot of what the game has to offer
- Still has stuff to do though
- Not much difference when you get towards “the center”
- Inventory bugs
- “PRAY for a Day 1 patch”
- Upgrades actually make some weapons/tools worse
- Game has crashed like “20 times now” advises you save often
“So, I’ve reached the center. For now, I’ll just keep it a secret. I realize it is “the secret” of the game and I’m sure other people will spill the beans for clickbait sooner than later, so fear not fellow spoiler hounds – someone out there will feed your appetite I’m sure.”
“Contrary to what a lot of people think, I have done A LOT of what the game has to offer. I actually intentionally took time out of my warp jumping over the course of going to the middle to explore planets to break up the monotony of it. This does not mean I have done all of the major events, however – I am still yet to swim to the bottom of a big ocean. I am still yet to destroy a space station. I definitely still have stuff to do.”
“Another gripe I have right now with the claims on the game before release is this whole “it gets weirder the closer to the middle you get.” If you’re like me, you expected some seriously obvious inclinations that this was happening as you progressed, and for me… I haven’t seen much in the way of difference as I went. The ONLY ONLY ONLY big difference, and honestly the only reason I pushed it so hard, was the weapon crates you saw in the Trade video with the guns for trade improve in quality as you go further in. So, for me, my basic logic was… the sooner I get to the area at the middle, the sooner I have the best multi-tool, so why wait?”
“Here’s a HUGE gripe for me at the moment. I’m going to list some bugs at the bottom and I’m not sure if this is a bug or not, but holy shit has this been annoying. I’ve “upgraded” my suit to unlock all available inventory slots possible. I’ve found and bought what I “think” is a multi-tool with the maximum amount of slots available in the game. However, ships HAVE NOT IMPROVED AT ALL throughout the entire course of the game. This is not a joke. I am at the point now where my PERSONAL SUIT has something like 3-4x the total inventory / module slots as my fuckin ship. That seems wrong to me.”
“There are bugs. Quite a few in fact. In some moments I really start to feel as if this game would have benefited from a beta test. PRAY for a Day 1 patch, not only to nerf the sale cost of Atlas Stones but also to address some of this shit too:”
Currently, Beam Upgrades for your multi tool seem broken and ass backwards. Upgrades that are supposed to slow down the heat up of your beam, actually speed it up. Upgrades that are supposed to speed up the mining speed of the beam, actually slow it down. Essentially, your STARTING beam is as powerful as it can be, and if you upgrade it with +1 +2 +3 beam upgrade modules it becomes UNUSABLE. This would, in theory, mean that the fully upgraded beam is actually the beam you’re supposed to START with, which would mean my early exploration would have gone a LOT slower.
Sea creatures spawn in shallow water completely vertical stuck in the ground. This isn’t like a one time bug thing either, 80% of the large sea creatures have spawned this way, which is a super bummer for me because sea creatures are my favorite and I can’t even appropriately scan them or even naked eye view them when this happens.
I’ve had the game full on crash to PS4 menu something like 20 times now. Usually when I’m warp jumping. No joke. Save your game a lot kids, you’ll be pissed if you don’t.
Again, not finding ship upgrades has been super frustrating. Is it a bug? Is the game not spawning better ship module inventories like it’s supposed to? Are we actually just supposed to have ships with 1/4th the total inventory of our suit? What gives HG, c’mon.
