No Man's Sky is back this week with another major update

No Man's Sky is mostly a distant memory for me at this point, but with an ARG brewing and people getting jazzed about uncovering its secrets, the sci-fi exploration game has been back on my mind. We've known about a possible August launch f...

Today's update for No Man's Sky is a doozy

Just yesterday I said I'd consider getting back into No Man's Sky with the next update (once I unearth myself from Q1 2017's avalanche of amazing games), and what an update it is. This introductory video mostly focuses on the new land-base...

Are you still playing No Man's Sky?

Getting into No Man's Sky a day or so before everyone (well, almost everyone, outside of that one guy who got an early copy off eBay) for my review session was a treat. I love the idea of jumping into a brand new world that's completel...

Well, that's one way to declutter waypoints in No Man's Sky

If you're playing No Man's Sky, you've probably gotten yourself into a situation where there are approximately far too many waypoints. So many, in fact, that you can't even see what they say. Maybe you kept scanning for transmission towers ...

No Man's Sky active userbase plummets on PC

While No Man's Sky seems to be a day-one success, especially by indie standards, everything that's happened after launch hasn't been all that promising. In addition to just about total radio silence from Hello Games about what happened to s...

No Man's Sky 'LowFlight' mod takes the game off the rails

No Man's Sky, as we talked about previously, is a fun chill little game, but over time you'll start to notice its blemishes. For instance, on-planet flight can feel really clunky, almost like an afterthought (having to refuel every minute b...

No Man's Sky creator clarifies 'free DLC' comments

No Man's Sky, if anything, is starting to be remembered as a game that seemed to promise the world and gave us a little bit less (who didn't see this coming?). The latest shift comes by way of creator Sean Murray himself, who originally tal...

What are your weirdest discoveries in No Man's Sky?

PC Port Report: No Man's Sky

No Man's Sky released on PC today, but can your rig run it?

What's the sickest alien you've seen in No Man's Sky?

Review in Progress: No Man's Sky

Every once in a while a game comes along that reaches gargantuan hype levels that are relatively unsustainable. No Man's Sky hit that peak several years ago, in no small part due to Sony's marketing. I often talk about the exact m...

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...

Try to count the things that can kill you in No Man's Sky
