So I was one of the few that stuck with No Man’s Sky after its rocky launch and loved the game. I never played on a regular basis, as with all survival games I have a habit of playing non-stop for hours, days, nay weeks at a time, not getting anywhere in terms of story but collecting and building, mining and farming, until I got all the stuff, which of course, is never. Looking back, I blogged about it quite a bit in the 2016 Blaugust season. Eventually I burned out and though I returned a few times, especially after major updates, it never became my ‘main game’ after that initial burst.
Recently, however, the game has gone through another evolution, with the Next expansion. My stream friend list has gone from half a dozen owning the game, to well over twenty and i have returned and jumped in head first. Base building is a major attraction for me with games like this and the new system is great. I was initially stumped about my old base disappearing but soon enough I got things back on track and have built something bigger and better.
My planet, originally named Knifesedge Homeworld is neighbour to the imaginally retitled Iceworld and Waterworld ( no prizes for guessing what type of planets they are!) and between them they have all I need. With my base built to my satisfaction, now I need to earn some cash and get a better ship. I’m loving it so far and hope it keeps my attention for the weeks to come.
I stream some of my gameplay at http://www.twitch.tv/Knifesedgegames, most evenings around 10pm GMT so stop by if you’re interested, or at the very least, follow my channel, and I’ll gladly follow yours.
