So, I just preordered the game on PS4. Anyone else planning on picking this up?

I'm going to wait until the inevitable first month's worth of patches and updates (like pretty much every new high-profile release) have been issued and then get it.

I've had it preordered for pretty much a year now. It started suffering from the same thing as The Division in as much as I was super hyped for it when I first heard about it, but the amount of time I've had to wait has kinda sapped my hype levels.

I'm still interested to play it, but now it's more from a technical viewpoint to see what exactly they're managing to pull off with this game. To be honest, my hype has moved on to waiting for the new Nintendo NX and Breath of the Wild.

I've got it sat ready to go and I'm trying to fix a clogged toilet at 11pm instead. Being an adult/parent f*cking sucks on game release days. :lol:

I'm looking forward to this, how are consoles getting the pre-release and the PC Master race is having to wait!

So far I've met the same bollock-face trader a handful of times and bought some stuff to upgrade weapons I dont get to use on anybody because theres nobody around and shot a bunch of flowers.

I'm mostly chilling with robots. And flying away from raiders as I'm terrible at space combat.

Started this properly today. So far I've accidentally shot a majestic creature in the face while trying to scan it, blew up a few sentinels, discovered 2 systems, and renamed a landmark as "Cook Pass" on planet "Babtridge".

How's about that for an relatively obscure reference! :lol:

I can see this being a huge time sink though. I've spent the best part of 3 hours jumping back and forth between 3 planets, 4 moons, and a space station.

Well, I've still not been able to play. The PC port is pretty buggered for a lot of users so I may well just opt for a refund if it's not sorted within the next week or so. Disgraceful really.

It's weirdly addictive. I'm on my second planet, but only because I want the Atlas pass so I can go back to the first planet :p

Is anyone else finding it absurdly difficult to find everything you need to scan? I've still got lifeforms to find on planet 1 after 8ish hours of play.

I'll admit that I only realised how the scanner works after already playing for two hours and hopping around planets willy nilly.

The planets are frigging gigantic. I started on a toxic world, so I was straight into the refuel, explore, harvest cycle. I covered a crapload of ground on foot at the start, since resources were scattered and miles away (40 minute walk to a resource for the pulse drive... then 40 minutes back). Thankfully, the creatures were non-hostile.... I'm discovering that may not be the norm.

Also credits are easy once you realise Plutonium + Iron = Chip. Tip, don't do what I did and get loads of each at once. Chips consume a slot each so you'll be doing the whole trading cycle a lot more if you can only hold 2 or 3 chips per time. Chips are also really useful for finding poi's at the laser beacon things without walking or random flying. Spam the crap out of shelter and monolith.

I came across what I can best describe as a T Rex with a beak. Aggressive bugger and hits hard.

I found a creature which has a glans for a head and a vagina dentata for a face...I called it Knobby.
