In the aftermath of what most have dubbed as a disappointing release for what was supposed to be an industry changing game, No Man’s Sky Community Team has been born.

Although it may seem that Hello Games has been sticking their head in the sand since launch, nothing could be further from the truth. Granted the small studio has had trouble keeping up with the issues that a few million players hitting the servers at the same time has caused. Plus having to deal with the influx of information and issues from a few million players, and probably some unfinished coding on their end.

Could you imagine finishing a room in your house and then having a thousand house inspectors come in and tear it apart to make sure that every nail/screw was exactly evenly spaced. Oh the horrors they would find in my house!

They have been trying to correct any issues, that we the gamers, have found and now with the creation of the Community Team it is clear that they are going to try to communicate more with the public about what steps they are taking to make the universe a better place. I wonder if the are required to be fluent in Gek or Vy’Keen?

I have asked Sean twice now to let us interview him, but I have had no response yet. So either all the things being said are true, which I choose not to believe. Or this is just a case of a small studio not being ready for the big time! I am sure when he finds the time he will respond!

People from around the globe have been hating on No Man’s Sky, but has anyone stopped to smell the roses? The game is pretty amazing. The story (yes there is a story) is really in-depth. If you take the time to start to learn the languages you will find that the universe starts to make sense. The ruins, that usually offer several words to learn, reveal the history of 3 species that we have run into so far. The story of the Atlas is quite intriguing, and what’s with the sentinels? Where do they come from? Who builds and repairs them? There is only one way I am going to find out. Assuming that there are actually answers to those questions in the game, I will have to explore. Which is the core of the game, exploration. You run around and collect materials to buy better equipment to further enhance your ability to travel to the center of the universe. It’s a grind, but what did you expect, explore, build, trade, repeat.

When this game was being advertised with all of it’s new fangled coding, I personally looked at it with a hint of skepticism. I have been around gaming for roughly 30 years now and if there is one thing that I have learned it is that cutting edge technology is rarely everything they make it out to be. Has No Man’s Sky delivered on everything that was advertised? Not really, they have delivered on the largest part though, 18 Quintilian planets, an endless universe where we are to travel to the center to find the meaning of life (42).

There are rumors that your progress isn’t really being saved, an experiment that I will be conducting in the near future, and also that there is no way to find other players in the universe as it appears that we are all in seperate instances of the game. Which was somewhat proven by a couple of streamers but then explained as an “opening day” glitch in the servers by Sean Murray. I have yet to find solar system that has been discovered by another player, let alone see one.

Let’s be realistic about our expectations though. How many different types of elements would you like to be able to collect to “craft” things. Personally I ran out of space in the first half hour of gaming and have been struggling ever since. How many different alien races would you like to learn a new language for, or learn the history of. I think 3 is a good start. Read the story that the developers have given us and enjoy the technology that they have created.  Most importantly give the Community Team a chance to do their thing.

We will revisit this topic again in about a months time to see how things have progressed.
