  • No Man's Sky inventory space: how to increase ship inventory slots, upgrade suit inventory space

  • SegaBlueSky 11/08/2016

    Some great tips here! IIRC I think Sean mentioned that they were going to look at inventory space again at some point which would be mighty handy. Always been a bit of an item hoarder in games so the limits are really testing me haha, never sure which things to get rid of and which to keep. Having some kind of mass storage option at space stations could be another option I guess? Reply +2
  • No Man's Sky has a game-breaking exploit which is letting users farm rarest items

  • SegaBlueSky 11/08/2016

    @tomphillipsEG Thanks for the reply Tom and I appreciate the answer. TBH I was less bothered by the reporting of the exploit itself (like you say, that's your job!) as the actual method. I don't feel like anything has been spoiled for me or anything as naturally I won't be using it. Think it's just the combination of controversies around the game at the moment, it's just a shame, is all. Anyways thanks again for replying! Reply +4
  • SegaBlueSky 11/08/2016

    @Puppaz Very true. TBH I'm kinda glad that there's no multiplayer of any sort (at the moment at least), I'm enjoying the isolation of it all! Reply +2
  • SegaBlueSky 11/08/2016

    @Crosshash That's not what I meant - do you see me complaining at articles about the multiplayer debacle? No. Criticize the game all you want for all I care, but this is almost...I dunno, 'unsportsmanlike' I guess? Just my opinion, but your cynicism is misplaced. Reply +14
  • SegaBlueSky 11/08/2016

    Really wish you guys didn't explain how to actually do it in the article - I know anyone that wants to do it could just Google it, but it's a shame to see a respected website like EG go against the spirit of a game like this and effectively advertising the fact. At the end of the day you can do what you want of course, but personally it's a bit disappointing to see. Reply -16
  • PlayStation 4K reveal date set for 7th September

  • SegaBlueSky 10/08/2016

    Just hope we get a solid reveal with plenty of transparent info, rather than a hype reel that doesn't give much away. I'm perfectly prepared to consider a new version of the PS4 but the more info Sony give the more likely I am to get on board with the idea. Reply +31
  • No Man's Sky players meet in same spot, but can't see each other

  • SegaBlueSky 10/08/2016

    Couldn't care less, I don't particularly want to meet any other players in NMS, in all honesty. It would help them massively if they were just honest about it though. Reply +4
  • Performance Analysis: No Man's Sky

  • SegaBlueSky 09/08/2016

    Will be interesting to see if the PS4K offers any notable upgrades to No Man's Sky - an FOV slider, a solid 60fps and, dare I say it, VR support would absolutely get me to invest in the new version. Reply 0
  • Our No Man's Sky review will be late, and here's why

  • SegaBlueSky 08/08/2016

    @MonkeyMagik Heck, I've downloaded updates for FFXIV and the Witcher 3 on a 2MB connection. It ain't fun I can tell you, but I dealt with it just fine! If was that big a problem for me I could have quite easily found some other hobby to spend my time with, but I knew the score when I bought my PS4.

    I do get that it's frustrating and worrying that the 'whole' game doesn't arrive on the disc on day one, but as suggested with the article I suspect this is more to do with submission requirements, publisher/platform/marketing/competitor pressure to hit certain dates, etc. Delays have a huge effect on game development, promotion and sales performance. All in a time where the fine margins and profits are more essential than ever to make sure the next project can be funded at all thanks to increased development costs. To that end, I can deal with a day one patch. Better than launching the game while ignoring all the problems and then finally making the game playable after months of struggle.

    As a side note, well done EG on addressing this in a mature, neutral and fair way, without crucifying a small developer.

  • No Man's Sky has an enormous day one patch that adds multiple endings

  • SegaBlueSky 08/08/2016

    Holy moly, that is immense. Astounding that such a small team has done that much in such a short amount of time. I assume additional patches down the line won't be anywhere near this comprehensive but still, it's a good show of effort from Hello Games. Everything sounds really interesting and exciting. Bring on Wednesday, can't wait! Reply +4
  • Sudden Strike 4 announced

  • SegaBlueSky 04/08/2016

    @321- I understand the concerns but it's a little early to dismiss this entirely, isn't it? I'd be worried if the previews said that they'd had to use an XBox controller for the PC version but seems like it's getting a pretty positive response so far. Reply +1
  • SegaBlueSky 04/08/2016

    Cool, like the look of this. Always had a soft spot for these types of games ever since the original Commandos. Not a lot like this on PS4 either, but might go for the PC version if my laptop can handle it. Reply 0
  • Outlast 2 delayed until early next year

  • SegaBlueSky 02/08/2016

    No problem with that at all, gives me time to finish Outlast 1 and Soma! Really wish I didn't love horror games so much, as I find it so bloody hard to finish them. Reply +1
  • Watch this Dark Souls 3 all boss run completed without getting hit

  • SegaBlueSky 02/08/2016

    Not normally a fan of this kind of stuff but I'll admit that is an incredible run. Heck if I could even beat Nameless King solo I'd be pretty damn happy with myself! Reply +1
  • NX is different, and different is Nintendo's best option

  • SegaBlueSky 28/07/2016

    @redcrayon Yeah, just goes to show the variety of tastes out there. I can imagine myself being in the exact same boat when I have kids to think about, for sure. Time is already limited as it is and I never have time for games like the Witcher anymore. If the average game time I hear from people is accurate I reckon I could easily spend 6 months trying to finish that game. Reply +1
  • SegaBlueSky 28/07/2016

    @redcrayon Yeah, can totally understand all of that. I can see how the NX would present a lot of potential then but you're quite right, there's a lot of room for it to go wrong as well. Thanks for sharing, I always find it interesting to hear about this kind of stuff. Reply +1
  • SegaBlueSky 28/07/2016

    @redcrayon True, that's a very good point I hadn't even considered. Do you just game on portables then or do you game on PC as well?

    And for that matter, as a fan of portables primarily, what do you make of the NX from what's been suggested so far?

  • SegaBlueSky 28/07/2016

    I think part of the problem is that people really fall into a few camps with Nintendo. It's die-hard fans want the new Nintendo console to be their primary console. Secondary fans want them to be their alternative console, and tertiary fans are just interested in the odd Mario Kart / Smash Bros session.

    I fall into the second camp myself - always been a fan but the only time they've been my 'Primary' console was with the Wii, which didn't last too long. For me the NX looks very intriguing - not without concerns and risks - but I also see the potential. Speculation is inevitable but with something so different it's also hard to be anything but either negative or insanely overhyped, and with this it's definitely the former. Personally I'm quite happy to just wait it out and see what they come up with.

    It's all about the games at the end of the day, and my gut says that the Wii U's struggles have resulted in Nintendo holding something back for their next attempt. We all know what they're capable of at their creative best, so we'll see.

  • Life is Strange is getting a live-action series

  • SegaBlueSky 28/07/2016

    Got to admit I can't see why this would be an especially good idea, but I guess I can see why they think the story could go down well with people who wouldn't play the game, as a Netflix series or something maybe. Get the feeling it isn't so much for the benefit of those of us who played the game. If they got a good cast I'd definitely be up for watching it though, enjoyed the game too much not to! Reply 0
  • What the heck is Darksiders: Warmastered Edition

  • SegaBlueSky 28/07/2016

  • Nintendo NX - games, specs, release date and everything we know about the new portable system

  • SegaBlueSky 27/07/2016

    @mazzaman89 Interesting, didn't know that. Surely that would make it a bit tricky to release games though, if for example the bigger 'AAA' games required support for different specs? Maybe they can make it smoother than that, but it sounds a bit like a can of worms development-wise. Reply +1
  • SegaBlueSky 27/07/2016

    Pretty intrigued by all this. If they can get Wii U or better performance into a portable that can easily be hooked up to a TV at 1080p, that would be pretty cool and would be something I'd be interested in for sure. Reply +1
  • PS4 system update beta sign-ups now live

    @Bauul Wow, that's pretty amazing, especially for an 'indie' title. Sounds like how I was with the first Dark Souls. Looks like I'll be putting aside some time to try it this weekend then! Reply +2
  • SegaBlueSky 26/07/2016

    @DjFlex52 I don't especially care, I was agreeing with someone else that technically, they're not free. Calling it free doesn't make it free. I'm quite happy not to talk about it any more but if you keep tagging me in messages I'll probably respond to explain my point of view. Reply -7
  • SegaBlueSky 26/07/2016

    @pablodiabloescobar I didn't turn it into a spat, for the record. It's getting drawn out because people disagree and tag me in a comment. It opens up a discussion. I didn't even start it, just agreed with someone else! If the conversation is mundane to you then fine, go about your business and talk about whatever, doesn't affect me. But if someone starts talking to me I'm gonna answer, more often than not.

    The bottom line is that GWG are not 'free'. It's not an opinion, it's a fact. You pay for a service and get stuff, same as Netflix or whatever. If that distinction doesn't matter to you then great, fine, whatever, enjoy your games! But I'm not wrong.

  • SegaBlueSky 26/07/2016

    @DjFlex52 No, they're not. Just because the included extras have changed doesn't mean you're not paying for them, you're just getting more value for your money. If it was a one-off extra then yeah, there'd be an argument for that, but it's a regular monthly feature of Xbox Live, has its own branded label 'Games With Gold', etc. It's an advertised part of the service now.

  • Nintendo NX is a portable console with detachable controllers

  • SegaBlueSky 26/07/2016

    In theory, I'm on board with this. The question mark that surrounds things for me though is whether this replaces the 'DS' series of handhelds and presents a single unified platform for Nintendo games?

    Also keen to know if games purchased on the Nintendo eSHop (ie. Virtual Console) will transfer across seamlessly, or if we'll have to buy them for a third time? Hopefully not...

    Either way, roll on September - it's going to be fascinating to see what they've been up to at long last!

  • Is Sonic Mania the sequel we've waited decades for?

  • SegaBlueSky 26/07/2016

    "It's a game that answers the question "What would a 2D Sonic game have looked like on Sega Saturn?"

    That alone means day one purchase for me. Ridiculously excited about this - always wanted it but never thought it would happen. The trailer already shows that they've got the core principles of what made Sonic games so great. Coupled with the quality of their mobile ports, and I'm inclined to believe this will be a quality game. Whereas the other trailer for the 3D game filled me with an instant paralyzing (yet familiar) sense of dread.

    Despite the constant disappointments in Sega over recent years, I'll always be a bit of a fanboy for them. Hopefully if this gets a good response it can be a bit of an indicator that they can revisit their past glories and make a good go of things rather than butchering them completely.

  • Why No Man's Sky fans are worried about a patented Superformula

  • SegaBlueSky 25/07/2016

    @Manny2000 Ha, I swear everyone who doesn't like the look of NMS starts off with the words 'Am I the only one' - no, you're not the only one by any means, and that's perfectly OK. It won't be a game for everyone. If it doesn't appeal to you already then chances are it won't be this big revolutionary experience for you.

    Expecting very mixed responses from fans and press alike, but I couldn't care less. This is exactly the kind of game world that I've been wanting for years and I can't wait to spend hours exploring it.
