Companies over promising and under delivering will never stop until consumers stop pre ordering and pre purchasing.

File size doesn't matter!

 

Just because a game has long code,

doesn't mean it has girthy gameplay.

You're not wrong, it's pretty shallow, but don't judge a procedural game based on filesize. If all the graphics and shit were prerendered it would be like 50 gigs

I'm not surprised it was relatively small considering it generates most of its assets dynamically from what I can gather. Code takes up a lot less space then models and graphics in most games. Because this game uses its code to generate everything you see in the game on the go, it ends up having a much smaller file size.

The only game I have been happy with when doing this was Starbound. The devs continued to work hard on it for over a year after it was an already playable and fun game. I tried a few others as well, and have had nothing but dissatisfaction.

Preorder on the Witcher 3 was worth it.

Kerbal space program also managed a wonderful development cycle. Attentive community driven designers were constantly in touch with their player base. Modders were supported and even integrated from the wider body into the design process.

I was thinking StarMade when I read that. StarMade is like Minecraft in space, has planets, planetary landing, starbases, factions, and even battles. It just looks blocky. The only thing that can save No Man's Sky at this point is to actually include what was promised and get people coming back.

Laughing all the way to the bank.

I never pre-purchase. I'm patient and there's just no need.

Done with me, people need to stop being stupid with money.
