These days, I’m often looking for something relaxing to play, so I decided that, in light of the recently deployed Atlas Rising update, No Man’s Sky might be worth another look. Gamers seem to be receiving the update well (No Man’s Sky has finally achieved Mostly Positive on Steam reviews as a result), and it’s clear that Hello Games has been fleshing the game out with a series of significant updates over the past year.

Read the full story here

    I haven't purchased the game yet, but was planning on doing so eventually. I just missed-out on a No Man's Sky recent Steam sale so I'll wait longer till the next sale opportunity. I remember reading/hearing about the initial launch's negative reviews, but every game can improve itself if a team behind it has the intent to do so. I hope this is the case with this game.

    This article has been super helpful to me. I am feeling totally lost and a little overwhelmed. The tips are great and give me something concrete to develop my strategy with.

    So those little floaty scanners can eventually be farmed? How dangerous is that and what are the consequences?

    Sentinels /can/ be good sources of zinc and nanites.  Zinc keeps you shields up.  Nanites are used to buy many equipment recipes at space stations.  

    I'm trying to avoid game play and story spoilers. You'll learn more about Sentinels through lore and your experiences.

    Luckily I stayed away during launch or I would have been one of the pissed off masses and probably a nasty troll, but picked it up last week as it was on sale on steam for a bargin price and I have to admit so far so good I am enjoying it. Thank you for the story/ guide it will help this noob a lot.

    Also, don't forget to scan Sentinels for some often amusing descriptions.

    The article has videos for all 3 of the major updates in it. Those should definitely catch you up on what's been added. TL;DR: Lots more breadth, still unsure on depth.

    They're actually best to farm in the beginning. They're probably the most consistent way to make units when you start out. Maybe wait until you can get the Boltcaster (gun) upgrade for your multitool to farm them hardcore. You can probably do OK farming them with the mining laser, but I haven't really tried it. Might be slow.

    I haven't been able to play since 1.3 as the game closes for me now at the Hello Games splash screen. But prior you could make a lot of quick money buy trading resourced between the visitors on a space station. Some sell items at -92% value that other by at regular or prime value. There was that resonator component which is really high priced (so you need at least 100,000 credits or what it was called). You make roughly 50% profit each time meaning with 6-8 slots you could make a LOT of money very fast, just a bit repetitive running between the visitor ships and buying and selling the same thing over and over.

    Played: Pretty much any fantasy MMO, some did not even make it to release ...
    Favorites: UO, EQ2, Vanguard, Wurm Online, Salem, ESO, Creativerse
    Playing: ESO, Creativerse, Guild Wars 2
    Anticipating: (sigh) ... maybe Ashes of Creation
