Joint exploration almost a redeeming feature?

Nothing could redeem NMS. Nice to see they don't stop trying to though.

Nothing could redeem the overhype generated by the community based on their own ideas of the game

The game itself has gotten better. The 30 hours of story goodness is one of the last things nms needed to bring it back. It's got that and a ton of new stuff. New textures in the right spots also look great.

The multiplayer barebones ness is basic. It's having a visible presence and VoIP works also but you are only seeing glowy orbs. Still, is a nifty thing.

Saying nothing can redeem it is just silly. The games in a very solid place now and if it was to re release under the same idiotic over hype it would be recieved faaaaaaar better. Still not quite the original Choo Choo but damned if this isn't now worth it

Doesn't help when the developer does a Peter Molyneux and create the hype in the first place. But no game is irredeemable. People said the same thing about Payday 2, and look where it is now.

In many ways yes. Though the overhyped was media and the community that built around it. He certainly told his share off bullshit but it was people after that fact that made the soon to collapse Tower of hype.

Good news is however, I def recommend anyone who has it to finally give it a shot.

You can see the spiral of bullshit form with the multiplayer at launch issue. Looking back, he was constantly saying things like "Don't think of it as a multiplayer game" and go on a tangent about the chances of meeting people are so slim anyway, which someone could assume fairly that there was at least some multiplayer aspect. It seems to me like he didn't want to disappoint anyone by stating clearly that there wouldn't be multiplayer at launch.

@KustoM hype generated by false media and outright lies in Dev Interviews, right?
Small c338c51ea5ab175777633acaeb9a02c0
I still feel like there was the intention and the Sony pressure gave us what we got.

@Vash the bullshit from Devs has been spoken about but that did little because they even tried reigning it in, media like pcgamer make a big deal out of little things and even simply made shit up, that created the bigger issue.

The Devs missed features = A few missed features that people would be rightly pissed about.

Gaming news and hype train = Extended "truth" and outright lies as well resulting in growing hype and talk outside of their control.

They don't get off the hook but people and media did more damage and still people look to blame the Devs for people's one inability to realise they were on the wrong train and couldn't get their ticket changed.

There's a comprehensive list of what was 'promised' in the game here https://www.reddit.com/r/Games/commen... if you feel like getting into the gritty details of it. Seems like the game is slowly becoming the game that was promised initially. I wonder what would have happened if they brought the game out under early access?

I suspect it would have been better recieved but their update progress without community interaction has been very slow. The short and curleys are that it's pretty solid and very enjoyable in its current state.

There's even enough bitching for TB to tweet... (edited)
