No Man's Sky's day one patch almost sounds like a new game

These days it's not uncommon for a big game to have a day one patch that irons out some odd bugs or even activates a feature or two, but it's still a rare thing to have a doozy like the one planned for No Man's Sky's opening day.  In a...   read
