Inspired by the adventure and imagination that we love from classic science-fiction, No Man’s Sky presents you with a galaxy to explore, filled with unique planets and lifeforms, and constant danger and action.

In No Man’s Sky, every star is the light of a distant sun, each orbited by planets filled with life, and you can go to any of them you choose. Fly smoothly from deep space to planetary surfaces, with no loading screens, and no limits. In this infinite procedurally generated universe, you’ll discover places and creatures that no other players have seen before – and perhaps never will again.

  1. I’ve never played this game & am considering getting it but I was put off when You said about the ship controls being “virtual sticks” if You know what I mean. Are the controls like in “flying aces: navy pilot sim” & “ultrawings”? Because I really don’t like that control style (although ultrawings is fun). Can you control the ship using the analogue sticks? (on Oculus touch or XboxOne controller). I’m guessing there’s no Hotas support because of the walking gameplay etc. Please let me know Your thoughts on this mate. & as always, great review. Topus Notchus! 👍👍👍

  2. Really enjoyed the video guys! I’ve been an NMS fan since launch in 2016 and VR has brought a fresh new perspective to the game I already love.

    Curious what headsets you were playing on?

  3. Thank you both for the review. I've only played this game in pancake mode, but when I do purchase a headset it's nice to know that the VR implementation is enjoyable. I do want to wait until I can upgrade to a new gaming computer because I'm mostly playing on my PS4 Pro and I'm guessing PSVR won't be nearly as impressive?

    If either of you like this game enough to play it beyond your review, there are two basic and very useful methods to cut down on the grind. One is to visit multiple galactic market terminals by space station hopping. Not only will you find basics like ferrite dust, sodium and oxygen on the cheap, but you can also occasionally find uranium, tritium, dioxite, pyrite, phosporus, chromatic metal, copper, and other very useful resources, sometimes in large quantities. Also, when the new patch gets out of experimental (probably later this week), you'll again be able to create massive greenhouses, and the plants you harvest can be converted into carbon via refiner. Once your greenhouse becomes sizable it will be a much faster and more reliable method of obtaining carbon than mowing down a forest with your multitool.

  4. Love this game, only bought it when it got the vr update, played so many hours in it and I still love the fact you just grab your ship/vehicle to jump in. It's the little things in vr that make it so good 😀
