No Man's Sky is the current poster child for managing expectations when it comes to hyping up a video game pre-launch. Much of what was expected—and even promised—to be in the game wound up either absent or underwhelming in the final release, but a new update has taken steps to remedy that, and players are pretty happy about it.Read More

It's safe to say that, for a lot of gamers, No Man's Sky didn't live up to expectations. Not only did its creatures underwhelm from the Jurassic Park-like experience depicted in trailers, but very real features mentioned on the game's Steam page and in interviews leading up to release just aren't there. Now, that has led to the UK's Advertising Standards Authority opening an investigation.Read More
So ... nigh-endless copyright takedowns? Isn't that just reality?
Nintendo does not take too kindly to fan works that use their copyrighted material, so it's no surprise that they moved quickly to shut down procedurally-generated Mario/No Man's Sky "parody" No Mario's Sky. Luckily, the creators had anticipated that might happened, and the game has already popped back up with a new title that parodies Nintendo's approach to overzealous fans: DMCA's Sky.Read More

It boggles the mind—and the game's stability.
A lot of gamers may have been disappointed by No Man's Sky's repetitive gameplay, but it's hard not to be impressed by the game's sheer scale. Not only is its galaxy home to more planets than we could ever hope to fully explore, but each one is so massive in size itself that the game truly feels like it lacks the artificial geographic boundaries that usually keep players within a game's usable play area. Just how big are they, though? Take a look for yourself.Read More

A huge patch for a huge game.
A player with an early copy of No Man's Sky has already claimed to have seen—effectively, since it's not literally possible—everything there is to see in the game, but a day-one patch will change all that in more ways than one. Not only will No Man's Sky remove the possibility of the valuable resource exploit that player used to reach the game's ending in just around 30 hours, but the game will get multiple endings.Read More

And not completely frivolous like before.
No Man's Sky, the procedurally generated exploration game that looks downright stunning, has faced delays and legal troubles before, but this new hurdle seems to have sprung up suddenly right before the finish line. A "superformula" that the game uses to generate its rolling terrain and other objects is protected by a patent, which could give developer Hello Games a bit of a headache so close to the August 9 release date.Read More

Now, with the game's release date finally approaching, developer Hello Games has confirmed that the epic project is now finished.Read More
