    Ok, I have had this for over a week now and I will be honest....In my opinion, this is a Masterpiece.

    I have seen people moan about it being Boring, Repetitive, Samey...each to their own. I think its beautiful.

    Yesterday, I spent 3 Hours on the same planet flying about learning languages, collecting stuff, then flew up into space and encountered a brilliant dog fight with a bunch of space pirates. I am going to make a start on my ICND 100-105 on the 1st Sept. This gives me another two weeks of playing NMS. Its going to be one of those games where you can sit and play for hours, or hop on, play for 30 Mins and go back to what you were doing.

    Love it and certainly worth the wait :)

    Whereas I do feel it's Boring, Repetative and Samey, like you I have spent a few hours playing it and it was entertaining but.... well it's just a grownup Minecraft really.

    Waiting for a refund if I am honest with you.

    Fair point, if we all liked the same stuff it would be really boring.

    I maybe wrong but hasn't MineCraft "evolved" over time? I am really looking forward to seeing what they add in future updates.

    I pre-ordered it, played it for 2 hours and got a refund from Steam

    Some people have been very lucky from the beginning in upgrading their suit and ship etc.. one guy on twitch already had a 40 slot suit and was on the hunt for a 36 slot ship as he already had over 15m in credits..

    Refunds for games??? Is this a PC thing or can it be done on console? Some games you get on demo now, however some games you dont.

    I would have loved a refund for half the tripe I have paid for in the past

    Anybody on here disappointed with "No Man's Sky" should take a look at "Elite: Dangerous" on PC as a possible alternative.

    The ships have voice control and you can buy (third party) mod packs that give your ship's computer the voice of Tom Baker, William Shatner, Paul Darrow (Avon off of "Blakes 7") or Brian Blessed.

    Wow I have not played elite since, well.... Amstrad CPC 464. Please say the Tom Baker voice mentions jelly babies or reversing the polarity, if so shut up and take my money!

    So I have Elite: Dangerous, I have a HOTAS setup, I have Oculus Rift and not played more than 10 minutes of Elite as it's sooooooooooooo complicated.

    Now Eve: Valkyre for the Rift is just nice, it's XBone controller based and nice and easy to play.

    I like it but there's loads I'd like changing, the ability to alter my controls more for one, outside view flying around unless I just dont know the right button to press. A downwards camera as I guess where I land on planets. I have a hyperdrive but have no idea what system to go to, so I just fly around looking for fights. I don't really get the storyline but sod it, I get to laser stuff in the face, fly off and laser more stuff and basically be an interstellar outlaw. Sweet :) I was a big fan of the Borderlands games so I dont mind that the graphics are a bit cartoony if that's the right way to describe it, plus I like cartoons, Thundercats hoooooooo

    You know it player, I had a little blast after work yesterday. It's getting more addictive the longer I play it. I love upgrading guns and ships and being a pirate in general, ahaaaarrrr

    I am in the same ship mate (Excuse the Pun).
    I am loving just flying about upgrading stuff, having a dog fight then popping off to a planet for some resources and a quick chat with an Alien :)

    Apparently, Hello Games are going to be making continuous updates as well, looking forward to that!

    I haven't played in over a week now, got my boy into it for a morning but he slipped back to Minecraft whilst I am LOVING Warcraft again atm.

    I have updated to the latest Gog patch but still not 'getting' it as much as I would have liked.
