I played Eve for years. I can't imagine Elite has a worse learning curve. Still, thanks for the warning. I'm not sure I'm ready to put that kind of energy into a new game right now. Maybe I'll pick it up at the Christmas Steam sale.

NMS is a good game for what it is, just a lot of people think it's something else.

No. A lot of people were flat out told it was something else.

What schild said. No Mans Sky is False Advertising incarnate.

Is Elite: Dangerous any good in solo mode? I have zero desire to play another MMOG right now.


The big warning however is that Elite Dangerous has a massive learning curve. At first you struggle to even fly your ship or land it. And you do a lot of googling and reading wikis.

That's true, but it should be noted that if you have any experience with flight sims and you own a joystick you shouldn't have any real trouble. It's easier than any WWII aviation sim I've ever picked up, for instance.

That said, I own it and haven't played in a while. It is a colossal time sink, and you don't really build anything in it either.

So, just as a curiosity, the initial article that caused the thread is inaccessible.

NMS is much improved from before.  For one thing, I can transfer stuff from my current ship directly to a crashed ship.  You can also summon your ship to your location.  There is more gameplay; I restarted and there is at least more gameplay in the early parts.

As usual, I will say that I didn't read anything about this game before I bought it.

the best way i could describe the difference between NMS today and NMS at launch is that today's version is an actual game

You are being generous, but I agree in spirit.
