      I see this is available for pre-order, NZD$90.

      I watched a half hour long game play YouTube clip, it looks interesting enough. As always, I am concerned it will take away from my time playing ED 🙂

      Anyone going to purchase?

      It’s a HUGE maybe for me.

      Yea, me too. It could be amazing, or it could be an overpriced tech demo.

       

      Also: preorders are the devil

      Yeah, good point. I’ll wait for the release, then decide.

      In the words of Eric Cartman: You know what you get for pre-ordering a game? A big dick in the mouth.

      I got NMS (aka No Man’s Lie on many a steam forum/review) with the PS4, so I gave it a crack.

      Overpriced tech demo is an apt description.

      [EDIT: Something _like_ this, but a whole lot more satisfying is Empyrion: Galactic Survival – I’m sure @Xsannz posted something about that a long while back – It’s come a long way since then]

      There’s a story there to follow, but the big cons are:

      • You get one ship to fly
      • There doesn’t seem to be much point in ‘discovering’ flora and fauna
      • Did a _lot_ of walking before finding the bits to repair my ship, which …
      • at that point, I wasn’t all that inspired to keep going

      In the end, I didn’t find it particularly engaging.  Certainly not worth A$50 – $60.  Having played it, I’d balk at even A$20.  Maybe worth a look at A$15 or less.

      Yeah, the kids love it – but is a pretty dull game once you scratch the surface..
