Interesting new vast procedurally-generated universe space sim called No Man’s Sky. First person, action adventure, from a decent small studio. Good reports of it from a recent games expo, and it’s the first new game to attract my attention for a long time now. OK… I’d buy if it’s: on the PC; has some modability (base/station interiors and missions?); has seamless planetfall from orbit; has beautiful looking deep space; and has a robust mechanism to either auto-decide space dogfights entirely, or stabilise them on a relatively 2D circuit re: motion sickness.
It’ll probably going be up against the new crowdfunded Elite, though, so it’s going to have to be pretty compelling.
