In the past week, I’ve spent 40 hours with No Man’s Sky, and yet, I still don’t even feel like I’ve scratched the surface. I’ve managed a small base that doesn’t look like it was assembled with Lincoln Logs, and have poked my way through the multiple quest lines.
But really, what I’ve been spending a lot of time on (other that just general exploration to see what the heck is over that next ridge) is doing missions from the space stations – specifically the ones that want me to scan things (because I’m going to do that anyway), and those that request photos.
I freaking love photo missions – not least of all because it reminds me to take pictures of all the really cool places I’m finding.
I think that, once I get myself situated with a nice spaceship, and all the convenience upgrades, I’m going to load myself up with all the things I need to survive in space, and just do exploration-type missions. That will be my end game.
