I'm loving it so much again I bought the digital version so we can play together. The VR mode is great, the whole game feels fresh and new again. I played the original for 80 hours, I'm easily going to double that this time.

It changed a lot. I booted up my old save and my ship, exosuit and multi-tool were half filled with obsolete tech, new things popped up, new blueprints, missions. That platinum trophy doesn't mean much anymore lol. I continued with a new save instead and so far I've just been exploring one planet while adding to my base. I like all the changes so far, especially the much better stacking of materials and transforming materials in the refiner.

The game didn't need a comeback as it was great already, hence the 80 hours play time. This feels more like a sequel, no problem buying it again :) I still have the original disc, which can sit pretty on the shelf. One digital copy is enough to play on the primary and another ps4 in co-op. Pretty nice you can join each other's save if you need some materials that are abundant on the other's planet.

I thought it looked pretty neat, and a nice game to just chill out to when I used to watch Gribblegrunger's live streams.

I think I might have to eventually pick this up

Is there any split screen?



I'm been looking to get the game for a long time, but the price isn't right just yet. Anyway, it's impressive how much the game has improved over time, and it seems like it might improve even more.

I mean... I enjoyed the original, too, but I'd hardly call it "great". It was a flawed game and people were right to call it out for not featuring many of the things promised pre-release. I wasn't too hyped at the time, which is why I didn't bother with that and just enjoyed the base experience, but it was flawed for sure.

Looking much better now. By the way, does anyone play it on GOG?

Once I do end up getting the game, I'll probably get it on GOG. Looks like it'll be a while though, since 30 € (it's on sale right now) is still more than I'm willing to pay for the game. I suppose this doesn't answer your question, but I could not resist mentioning that GOG is my platform of choice.

Not on ps4. I bought a pro a few years back and kept the original ps4. It runs the same on both, I don't think it has any pro upgrades. (It doesn't help I have the pro connected to my old 1080p lcd and base ps4 to the new 4K HDR tv lol)

Anywho, with one digital copy and one ps+ subscription we can play together in co-op. But you do need 2 ps4s :/

It's the perfect chill out game, still is. It's even better now weed has been legalized in Canada and it has psvr support. Never been so chill before :)

Seemed like a complete dud at launch. Great to see it add a bunch of content albeit post launch. Definitely something I'll pick up when it goes on sale!

Ha! I barely smoke pot any more, but was planning on having some with NMS tonight. I smoke so little these days that I'm only halfway done my last illegally obtained oz. There's legit weed store right next to where I live now. Just opened, but have never been to it. Had to postpone moving my PS4 Pro to my new place tonight due to heavy rain, so that will have to wait till' tomorrow.

I dunno about this. I redownloaded it afew months ago and still cannot get into it. I wanted a more Star Citizen game or a MMO styled space game but the whole Minecraft in space isn't doing it for me.

Think it's on sale on steam. Might check it out

It was on sale a few days ago, I think it's back to normal price now.

I got it for 30 dollars yesterday.  Probably still half off till end of weekend.



More games should get the second review treatment. Rocket League has improved so much over the past 4 years.

I was interested in NMS at the start but pretty turned off about all the shady stuff and the apparently barren gameplay. Gonna put it on my wishlist again and buy it at a sale.
