Fine for the stalkers, but the sandsharks are just mean. But maybe we should have a subnautica thread for that one

My favourite early access game is pulling another patch right now!



You have to hand it to them, they're pushing really hard. I have the feeling that in another 6 months this game is gonna be truly great.

So not 6 months, but it's getting better. Might re-buy it for the PS4.

Well I hope they dont screw this one up. Im hoping that the next version would implement some sort of API for PC users for modding.

Huh, Sean Murray finally came out of the woodworks and gave a pretty extensive interview. Reveals some things about the new update we didn't know yet, about future plans, but surprisingly also talks a lot about the original launch and why Hello Games kept almost complete radio silence for 2 years now. Interesting stuff if you're interested in the game:

No multiplayer on GoG yet, coming somewhen later this year. That's basically a win for me, but there's a bit of upset because it wasn't priorly announced.

DRM-free and multiplayer is somewhat of an issue. The only really proper way to deal with it is let people host their own games, which is a lot more work than using the convenient APIs provided by Steam, PSN and Xbox Live, so I can definitely understand the problem. In my opinion, GoG should provide a hosting API in galaxy that games can use. That's still not 100% clean, unless you can run galaxy without a GoG account. I don't know if you can.

Weirdest planet I've found yet:



A "Temporary Planet", covered in tons of ferrite, pure ferrite and cadmium.

So i finally played the game...

You know how after an intense relationship and a messy breakup you'd think you would never be able to stand seeing her again, and yet a decade later you happen across each other and just catch up like old friends, as if neither ever happened?

It's a touch of that kind of feel here. Just a somewhat fun game, no hard feelings or regrets, no envy, no plans.
Guess i'm finally getting over it.

Can't say i disliked it - sure, there is not a shred of physics in NMS, but i kinda get why they did so. The story so far had been impersonal and scaffoldey, but guess how i handled it. Despite never playing it before, there is a persistent sense of familiarity.

The interface is a bit rough around the edges, feels like it's intended for VR or console-grade lousiness of controllers.
Haven't really played long enough to run into grindiness or to exhaust the procedural variation.
Having specific environmental threats on different worlds was a nice touch that never occurred to me.


Speaking of performance - was anyone else getting an ungodly long loading time at the start?
I have a fairly beefy system, and yet it still took several minutes of "loading" shaders and then staring at a starfield with no other messages.
