Astroneer is a minimalist No Man's Sky

I first played Astroneer at PAX West earlier this year, and it caught my attention immediately. It's near impossible to describe without mentioning No Man's Sky (NMS), as they're both procedurally generated games that revolve arou...

Halcyon 6: Starbase Commander is September's sleeper hit

It can feel like there are as many games about existing and exploring the final frontier -- space! -- as there are stars in the sky. Because of this, Halcyon 6: Starbase Commander flew under my radar at first. But after binging on it all we...

This might be what your character looks like in No Man's Sky

A super sleuth over at NeoGAF has been data mining the PC release of No Man's Sky and has discovered some interesting stuff such as odd textures, a poop effect, a tiny monkey wearing a fez, and an astronaut model that could very well b...

PSA: You can walk even faster in No Man's Sky

It can take a while to get places in No Man's Sky, especially when you're hoofing it. While you can enhance your stamina to sprint longer (taking up a prized inventory slot), here is one simple trick culled from Reddit and tested myself tha...

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

No Man's Sky features a full universe with infinity +1 planets, most of which seem to be hospitable to some kind of plant and wildlife. A lot of times these creatures look the same, a randomly generated amalgamation of limbs and swim bladde...

PS4 Neo could 'fundamentally change' No Man's Sky

The new PlayStation 4 model Sony is likely announcing in September, currently referred to as "PS4 Neo," could affect the future of just-release No Man's Sky, Hello Games head Sean Murray told the Daily Star. While this fly's contrary to rep...

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...

Come hear the No Man's Sky soundtrack

When I saw a link to this YouTube upload of the No Man's Sky soundtrack, I had the realization that despite the numerous gameplay videos I had seen of the sci-fi title these past few years, I somehow couldn't recall what its music sounded ...

You won't need PlayStation Plus for No Man's Sky

Kerbal Space Program is functional but finicky on PS4

[Header image by MK01] "Kerbal Space Program on a gamepad? How in the sweet hell is that going to work?" More than anything else, that has been my major concern with the console ports of Squad's rocket-building space-exploration simulator...

Kerbal Space Program hits PS4 and Xbox One soon

Squad's space flight simulator Kerbal Space Program will always be best played on a PC (controls, mods, etc.), but I'm pleased it's headed to other platforms so more of you can experience it. There's nothing quite like it, and I'm curious ...

PlayStation VR is getting an X-Wing experience

During Sony's E3 2016 press conference, we got an all-too-brief glimpse at Star Wars Battlefront X-Wing VR Mission, a thing I'd very much like to plaster in front of my eyeballs even if it's just for a single excursion. PlayStation VR laun...

You might remember House of the Dying Sun from Patrick's list of the "top 33 indie games to look for in 2016 (or 2017, or 2018)" back when the space shooter was still known as Enemy Starfighter. It has earned positive buzz as something fan...
