No Manís Sky - FIGHT Video #NoMansSky


Quote:
Your Universe Awaits

On a planet, players are equipped with a multi-tool to defend against deadly predator creatures and mine resources. Attacking creatures Ė aggressive or otherwise Ė or mining resources will call the attention of the Sentinels, a robotic force who seeks to keep each planet in a natural, undisturbed state. The more you fight back against the Sentinels, the higher your Wanted level, and the tougher they will become Ė from flying drones to quadrupedal machines, towering walkers and eventually dropships.

Space is also patrolled by the Sentinels, so attacking traders for their valuable goods or scavenging resources from freighters will also see you gaining a Wanted level, with Sentinel police ships coming to defend the natural order.

Itís not just the Sentinels who you need to beware of in space Ė pirates will swoop on the unwary, requiring you to evade and escape or fight back to defend your cargo.

I half feel like the 'sentinels' exist mainly to punish unethical activity that players would inevitably engage in and keep the game from descending into a literal anarchy of destruction and murder, which would be bad press for the game and game makers. But they also need an antagonist, and since it can't be other people due to the size of the universe, it works.

I still see this game as the first of what will be many games to follow its lead, that will take what works here and expand on it, and discard whatever does not. I would love to lay on Murray the mantle of the next Miyamoto, but I doubt this game will be quite that amazing.

Anyway, I've got it pre-ordered, let the games begin.

I'm glad to see they finally managed to fit two, sometimes even three(!!) blown out colors into each scene and biome.

Amazing use of the color palette we haven't seen since the cave painting days.

I don't know about that... This was a game early on that I thought might get me to buy a PS4, but I really haven't seen anything in the current crop of videos that screams "You'll want to spend 100s of hours here". I think the first 10 hours will be fun, maybe even feel great, but then it will just be rinse and repeat after that.

Yeah but if you did a pre-release trailer for Minecraft people would be asking the same questions and making the same complaints. People have spent many hundreds of hours in that.

Elite is the same.

DayZ is the same.

People have spent a long, long time in The Long Dark.

What's Factorio? They just make some ever more elaborate machine and that's it.
