  1. I’m not a big fan of the game but my girlfriend really loves it and makes me farm items for her while she’s cooking or cleaning. Although I think your score is a bit too harsh, Joe. This isn’t really my type of game and I didn’t exactly watch any of the previews but to each his own, I guess.

    • How’s a 5/10 harsh to you? Isn’t that usually mean “average”, “middle of the road” or “mediocre”?

      • Yep! 5/10 is Joe’s “Average”. It’s neither terrible nor great. The thing that irks Joe, though, is that this game had potential to be phenomenal, but turned out mediocre. In some ways, that’s worse than just being straight up terrible.

  2. 20:54 – That would have been a perfect point to put that clip from UHF, where the Japanese guy yells, “NOTHING! ABSOLUTELY NOTHING! STUPID! YOU’RE SO STUPID!”

  3. So it’s all of the fun of what Wally was doing before the main plot kicked off.

    Lovely.

  4. I still might buy this game. Although, I heard that two people did run into each other. I don’t know if it’s true or not though.

  5. Well it’s a shame you won’t cover Nintendo or Wii U, Joe…because we owners of the underdog console got our “No Man’s Sky” called – Xenoblade Chronicles X.

    Yes, I know it’s a JRPG at it’s core, and you only explore one (massive) planet, but you get the purpose, and quests, and giant flying whale sized monsters drifting around, and customizable mechs in a game that takes over a hundred hours to beat.

  6. The king of fail

    Joe, your disappointment has clouded your judgement. If these guys and the mass effect guys teamed up the story would still have no payoff… The center of the galaxy thing would be the exact same; except it’s be a slightly different color depending on what alien race you helped.

    Just jokin’, but yeah, my experience wasn’t any better, such a disappointment and I was glad I bailed soon enough to get my steam refund.

  7. Pretty sure there’s going to be a game within or lifetime that actually lives up to what NMS was promising. The technology just isn’t quite there yet to really do the concept justice.

  8. This is the new model of game design- push it out the door unfinished and broken, give a few minor updates, then abandon it forever and start making 60% of another game, then repeat. And they’ll keep doing it, and doing it, and doing it forever if people keep buying them. Have some standards, don’t pre-order ANYTHING, and wait for favorable reviews before you decide to buy something. Cannot stress this enough.

  9. Watched the review up till he gave the verdict of 5/10 and found that hard to believe. Lack of features, all that frustration for a game that crashes and virtually no payoff for your investment!?! I wouldn’t have rated it any higher than a 3 at this point. Maybe I’ll give it a try in five or six months but there’s no way I’d try it now.

    Thanks for the review, Joe.

  10. Try VegaStrike if it’s still maintained.
