Following the release of 2016’s most controversial release, No Man’s Sky, welcome to the pilot episode of I’m Just Playin’. The podcast from a couple of guys who love playing and making games, just trying to add a little colour to the conversation.
Joseph discusses the backlash that Hello Games have been receiving from angry customers. They seem to be failing to realise the technical achievement the game has accomplished. Sid on the other hand, goes into detail of it’s failings.
Should No Man’s Sky be remembered as the game that created the biggest game world thus far and commended for it’s beautiful art-style and relaxing gameplay loop. Or does the hype of having a game hyped to this magnitude, with constant coverage from the gaming press, major marketing back from Sony and misleading interviews from Sean Murray himself, make No Man’s Sky a game that will go down in history as a failure?
