Actually I liked the game more than Elite: Dangerous, and I put a lot of time into that as well.

 

After a while the crafting tasks got a little overkill for me, but I still enjoy messing around in it.

Elite is probably more hard core right? I think No Man's Sky was easier to get into and play. I'd consider getting it, but I just looked at the price. It's coming in at £40. Not sure I'd feel comfortable paying that :P

I'm fairly sure you'd get your moneys worth, although I might wait for sales also.

 

I'd say as of the last major update it's a fairly underrated game.  Interested to see what all is in this coming one.

IT's probably more representative of how much I'd play it more than anything else. I'd pay £40 and then it'd just sit under my TV. I'll wait for the sales and see what the reviews are like...it looks good though.

This game was always on my radar but it obviously got some pretty terrible reviews early on, I understand it's had a few updates to improve it a lot and the latest one seems to have been pretty positive, anyone playing this again?

 

I'm not sure £40 is worth the risk at the moment but part of me really wants to try this out.

It's currently £19.99 on Steam, I picked a copy up last night.  First impressions are it's easily I could whittle away a few hours in just exploring.

Pretty much the same feeling here. Reading online it's similar to The Division, where it wasn't great early on, but updates have worked wonders and it's now actually pretty good. I'll probably wait until the first sale and then pick it up then, even with the updates, I think £40 is too much (for Xbox)

I'll be playing it again.  The load times and draw distances were my only complaints with the last builds, and it sounds like they've both improved.

 

The improved graphics won't necessarily change my life but they looked pretty cool anyway.

 

I was pretty tired when I read the changelog so I don't even remember what else happened heh.

Ugh.  All the resources changed, so building stuff might be easier but figuring it all out again was a bit of a pain.

So there was a Tweet from Sean Murray (creator of No Man's Sky) about a new update dropping this week

I know this topic is two years old, but I picked up No Man's Sky on Xbox and have been playing on my One S. Love it and put 30+ hours in a few weeks. 

 

Looking forward to the next update, which the internet is going crazy about, and checking out this game on my Series X

It is fantastic.  Since I've played it on PC I'd rather keep playing it there until the Series X shows up...it performs smoothly most of the time on X1X but there are some really notable differences in specific situations that I'd rather not have to deal with.

      Universal Media Server 10.6.0
      by Razvan Serea



      Universal Media Server is a DLNA-compliant UPnP Media Server. UMS was started by SubJunk, an official developer of PMS, in order to ensure greater stability and file-compatibility. The program streams or transcodes many different media formats with little or no configuration. It is powered by MEncoder, FFmpeg, tsMuxeR, AviSynth, MediaInfo and more, which combine to offer support for a wide range of media formats. Because it is written in Java, Universal Media Server supports all major operating systems, with versions for Windows, Linux and Mac OS X.

      No Man's Sky visuals get a massive overhaul with the new Prisms update
      by Pulasthi Ariyasinghe

      Hello Games has been updating its space exploration and adventure game No Man's Sky with fresh content for almost half a decade now, and it is not done yet. The latest update, dubbed Prisms, is aimed towards dramatically increasing the game's visual fidelity while also adding the ability to adopt and ride flying creatures.

      The visual improvements come from the addition of screen space reflections for higher quality reflective surfaces, alongside enhanced volumetric lighting, light refractions, as well as rain and weather density improvements, among other effects. There is now even an advanced photo mode to take the new graphics for a spin.

      There are also new audio and visual effects for warp travel, more alien looking subterranean biomes, a huge increase to the number of stars that can be seen across the sky, and – as Nvidia announced earlier this week – DLSS support. Fur rendering is also in for the first time, giving appropriate creatures the all-important fuzzy look.

      Not all enhancements are available across every platform though. Screen space reflections are only enabled on PC, the new generation consoles, and the Xbox One X, with support for PCVR coming soon. Old-generation consoles are also missing out on the planetary detail improvements this update carries. Meanwhile, Xbox One S and PSVR platforms aren't getting the new fur rendering

      The No Man's Sky 3.5 Prisms update has now shipped out across all systems. The official patch notes of the release can be found here.

      Component shortage fails to slow PC growth in Western Europe, says Canalys
      by Paul Hill

      According to new research from Canalys, PC shipments in Western Europe during the first quarter reached 16.1 million units representing year-on-year growth of 48%. The analyst said that despite component shortages and high demand for PCs to enable working from home, the supply chain is in better shape than in Q1 2020 when COVID-19 brought everything to a standstill suddenly.

      HP saw the most shipments at 4.1 million units, representing 26% market share and Lenovo saw 4.0 million shipments, representing a 25% market share. In the following three places were Dell, Apple, and Acer who had market shares of 14%, 10%, and 9% respectively. Of these, Apple saw the highest growth, up 127% year on year. Canalys said that the new M1 chipset was a major driver behind sales of new Macs.

      Commenting on Apple’s success in Western Europe, Canalys Research Analyst Trang Pham said:

      As we emerge from the pandemic, Canalys doesn’t believe we’ll return to the world as it was before the pandemic. Instead, it sees employees doing more remote work which will keep demand for PCs high. Over the next 12 months, Canalys doesn’t expect PC supply to match the “sustained demand surge”.

      The Normandy SR1 from Mass Effect comes to No Man's Sky
      by Pulasthi Ariyasinghe

      Mass Effect fans can now take a break from the Legendary Edition to boot up another sci-fi game to catch the SSV Normandy SR1 in action. The No Man's Sky community that completed the second expedition (Beachhead) that arrived at the game last week had a surprise waiting for them when they reached its end, with Shepard and the crew's stealthy vessel greeting them as the reward.

      The official cross-over between the two space games had spawned out of a collaboration between Hello Games, BioWare, and EA. The No Man's Sky Expeditions update from last month delivered this form of seasonal community missions, where all players in the mode strive towards a single objective by completing various milestones situated across the stars.

      The Beachhead expedition had space goers accomplish milestones that had them figuring out the purpose of the "Historiographical Dosimeter", translating hidden messages, and attending to monoliths spread across the universe among their steps to finally summon the surprising grand prize.

      With the mystery out of the way, the Normandy is available to be added permanently to the frigate fleet of anyone that completes the Beachhead expedition. Interested fans may want to hustle though, as the expedition and the opportunity to claim its sleek reward will go away on May 31.

      It sounds like this won't be the only crossover we will be seeing from Hello Games going forward. This August will mark the fifth anniversary of No Man's Sky, and the studio has said to expect more surprises soon.
