Yea I mean dam I played the game 2 months straight at launch at like 4-9 hours a day on average I did skip the first big update but put at least 100 hours in each for 1.2and1.3 so it definitely can't be since day 1

I dunno. I certainly havn't put in 239 hours since 1.3. NO WAY lol

My total playtime for NMS is 590 hoursaccording to Steam :o

Civilization 5 (with expansions, DLC and mods) clocks in at 499 hours. The only game I can think of that I might have played more than 600 hours is one of the old Championship/Football Manager games when I was younger. I had too much time on my hands and used to marathon them for hours on end for months.

I think it's got something to do with me reinstalling the game and then deleting all saves to start again with Atlas Rises. I never deleted the hard save on my PS4 though, so I'm not sure why it happened. I know it's only taking into consideration the time I've played since teh Atlas Rises update because the time it tells me more or less matches the stream times in my channel. I'd only been playing for 107 hours according to the saves but I have 400 hours JUST on my channel, and I played a hell of a lot more in the previous months from the day of release. I played between 7 - 12 hours a day for months, sometimes nearing 24 hours at times. It wasn't healthy, I know, but I was obsessed and I'm unemployed! It should be around 2000 hours.

On a planet I was just on: chilled out 6.95m Gek Spawn descendant and these weird pond-dwelling arm-sucker things that thrash around in a totally freaky way.



This pilot must have bought his license on the black market. Would have challenged them to a duel for trying to land a nosedive next my ship if there were melee weapons and you could do that LOL.

I started up 1.38 for the first time since 1.36 and I was immediately given a new recipe. The only ingredient is Atlas Seeds. What do I do with this? I've never even done the new Atlas Path because I already finished the original one.

So how much different is the gameplay with the most recent updates?

I played the very first version for over 30 hours and almost completed the Atlas path then I just got bored. Not sure if I should wait for a future update and even more new game systems to be added or jump in now.

There are two Atlas Quest lines. The one that births a star and another, which does something completely different. Don't want to spoil it.

Gameplay isn't too different, there is just a lot more structure and multiple questing paths. You are going to do more than just finding Buildings over and over and getting tech now.

Huh, thanks. I don’t really feel like going through all that again so I guess I’ll just toss the recipe in the back of the ship and keep on truckin’.

Yeah you'll be hopping from world to world trying to find a specific rare resource so you can build something with it to give that something to Peter so he can request you get something else from Paul who will tell you he needs 3 rare things to craft what you need so you’ll have to go off and find those but to do that you need to have Advanced Xeno Dohickey equipped which you never learned so you’ll have to look up on the internet to find out where that schematic comes from only to find out you should already have it and you realize that your game has bugged out and you’ve completely wasted 60-100 hours of prior gameplay time.

But you can build cars to drive around the surface now. One of them is even a hovercraft!

Possible Spoiler:

Have you finished the Atlas quest line that allows you to pick another Galaxy? I picked the galaxy that has far more paradise planets.

Lol I was thinking more along the lines of “robbing Peter to pay Paul” but that’s always a good one.

I have not; I'm fine with staying in Euclid.

Speaking of different galaxies though, last night I found another observation tower building terminal in one of the Atlas lvl 2 pass rooms. Except this was one was in the middle of a room that was a huge hologram of a star system with planets animating in their orbital paths. I mean it filled the whole room. Never seen anything like that in the game. Like the first one I found, it also required a Remembrance item, which I believe can only be used after you leave Euclid? Almost makes me want to leave so I can find out what these terminals do.

Finally found two of the new biome planets today. Impressive visually, and maybe even more impressive sonically. The ambient soundtracks were fantastic, old-school foreboding synth lines. But in terms of what they were, it was kind of like looking at the Grand Canyon, "okay, that was nice, time to go." I found one of those ringed structures from the Beau Lamb concept art, but again the interactivity and payoff was kind of..."okay." Still cool to walk around for a bit, just wish there had been more to do narratively on them.

I finally, finally finished the farmer questline, so I can now dismantle my base and get off the formerly-beautiful-now-toxic-hellhole that my base planet is.
