I'm conflicted on this game. Should I buy after that and make the practise of finishing games post-launch look acceptable in the eyes of other devs, or should I not buy it and make it look like it's not worth save a game like that after it fails?



You know it deserves the GOTY.

I bought it when it came out and beat it. No need to play it again unless its completely different. Ive mined enough minerals for a lifetime.

It's conpletely different. Theres a 30 hour story (which im finding really entertaining so far) Dozens of side quests, dozens of jobs, a lengthy base building sub quest (I'm 20 hours in on that one and its really fun). It has a space fleet managment meta game, there is emergent gameplay all over the shop from new easter eggs type deals as you explore and ontop of that the prodecural generation is overhauled making everything look so much better than 2 years ago, planets are much more beutiful, interesting and really surprising at times, sometimes I don't want to leave them. Even the third person cameras make the game feel different and much more enjoyable for some reason. The drop in, drop out multiplayer is great.... basically everything except for the first two hours is different. There is triple if not quadruple the amount of content and it's good quality content too.

It's well worth returning too and I'm so glad I did. 

Well good on them for fixing it.



I'll probably get it whenever I upgrade my PC... which is probably gonna take a long time, sadly.

Did you buy Splatoon, Forza, or GT Sport?  It's a model that people are supporting already.

You're talking about decent games at launch that got better with time vs Bad game at launch that took 2 years to fix into something decent,

People need to support this model when it's done right, not when you're doing a Hello Games type of move.

That's not what he said, though.

And NMS got a 71 on PS4, which probably would have been a bit higher without the controversy.  ARMS got a 77, is that a better match?



1.53 is up for the PS4/XB1 folks.

Don’t forget the developer deliberately lying and misleading the gaming community in regards to what the game would include.

Those other three games aren’t really comparable here. Closest would be GT Sport i guess, since it’s seen substantial updates post release. But those were done to fix what the public found to be missing, not what was supposed to be there day one.



I've not played the game whatsoever, although I am looking forward to a time where I can get into it (Backlog permits that from happening just yet), but I think Hello Games could easily have made life easier for themselves by just telling everyone the game was in Early Access before this update came out lol, since it seems that's what it felt like to players, and it's a new concept to PS4 players since Sony generally don't allow Early Access releases on the platform.

From what I've seen, the game definitely looks like a ton of fun now, it's something I'm very interested in, I've watched the trailer and seen some gameplay footage, and yeah... it looks great now. They've definitely redeemed themselves by delivering plus extra, even if it did take longer than people had hoped.
