    And as someone who's been enjoying the experience deeply, here 600 hours in so far, I shared some thoughts about the game, and link to several posts I've made about NMS in the past. I feel that it's come quite a ways since launch and encourage folks to take a second look.

    A Gamer’s Reflections as “No Man’s Sky” Turns One Year Old

    Cheers.

    It's rumored the next major update is slated to debut in the next two weeks. I retained my copy of this game when everyone else gave up on in it and I'm glad I did. The last two updates reallly improved the game greatly.

    Have you been following the ARG (Waking Titan)? Crazy. Sean Murray will give an announcement today. Perhaps the update will land today -- unsure. HG changed their YT channel banner this morning.

    I have. I expect something soon. I think this will be a monumental update.

    Rumors of an XBox One version, as well as an update to make it VR... :)

    I haven’t played it for a very long time. Thing is, I really enjoyed it. But when developers say they’re going to release a load of patches I’m more inclined to just wait and see what happens. All I wanted from that game was an easier to understand navigation system to find my previous bases, and land vehicles. Do those exist in the game now?

    I think the NMS theme on PS4 is its second best theme, beating the PSone theme but being beaten by the lovely Firewatch one.

    I liked the premise, the visuals, but getting from point A. to point B, while on planet was painfully slow. I grew tired of taking so long to just walk and explore. Maybe that's changed, maybe I'm being unfair, but I find other games, like FO4 to provide a better experience in that way.

    That's changed dramatically from your viewpoint. The experiences you listed are from early on release day game play. I would suggest updating, as there are new game modes, land vehicles, base building and if you have a 4K/HDR set up, the visuals are upgraded with reduced aliasing.

    Has Stargates (hope MGM is okay with that... ;) )

    (Anyone with the address for the Atlantis Planet? Please share... :) )

    I had put this game down so long, that its difficult to pick up where i left off, that is knowing where everything is and what not. I was blasted out of the sky by pirates 5 minutes after leaving a space station. I wonder if its too little too late, at least for me.

    Never too late!!! You can always start fresh or continue. I started over when Creative Mode came out (I didn't like to have to recharge all the time in Normal Mode).

    I love Stargate - now this game has them (MGM was supposed to have a Stargate first person game but it never materialized. This new addition in NMS is so awesome...)

    I did start over in normal mode, in fact I was excited to do with with the idea of not making the mistakes that I did before, yet I'm unable to find out how to re-download my bonus ship that I got for pre-ordering. I see no option to download it. Not huge thing but one that kind of bothers me.

    Maybe I'll try creative mode, but I don't know.
