    No footsteps in the dirt?

    Guess that needs a community mod.

    Yup, same here.

    Question: you run down a ramp guns blazing and there are 2 enemies in sight: one ducks behind a hard cover from your shots and one stands in the open firing at you - which enemy do you shoot first?

    Right, that guy behind cover. xD

    Probably. Actually going in to space will involve something like 2 missions at the beginning, that's it.

    Seems like you work on the project and you know some stuff.

    Tell us more inside info if you want.

    Cheers!

    Looks like the same gamebryo engine. Lets see how it ends up, but it doesn't seem very encouraging. The 1000 planets to explore sounds very generic, as they can't possibly fill it with meaningful content. The outpost building is probably the worst feature they have added in their games in recent time, so that is a hard pass for me. Ship building seems quite similar, but at least it has a function, which actually might make it interesting.Combat looked very weak, but that could also be due to the nature of the demo, so we'll see.

    Overall a weak showing, but that is what I kinda expected. I guess I will really have to wait for release and tons of mods to see if its worth it. I hope it has more content and less boring grind than Fallout 4 though.

    exploring tons of planets was also a thing when Andromeda game-play\videos started to flow around. and the outcome was a huge joke.

    i suggest following Starfield without expectations for a story. it looks like more of a sim in space, with a lot of crafting and customization
    and it can appeal to some i guess.

    how the hell Todd is still announcing anything is beyond me

    That last part of the video... Like cmon, Planet Atlantis, tropical, full of water and so close to that huge star, that's so realistic. And those empty, procedurally generated planet surfaces killed it for me. I didn't expect another NMS.

    Star Citizen after 10 years and unlimited money still have tons of broken stuff in it.

    Note: i haven't watched the gameplay reveal yet

    Both those 2 games are a lot better than when they got released, only played NMS at release myself, Andromeda later on after it was polished and found it quite enjoyable.

    Starfield seems to be more in the line of Elder Scrolls / Fallout in space, will wait for some gameplay videos/streams before deciding if it's a go or no though, the gameplay reveal doesn't really show a lot.

    From what I can tell I don't think you are going to be able to actually fly from planet to space and vice versa like in NMS or Star Citizen, I think it's going to be just flying in space, and then when you get close to a planet it will give you an option to "Land" at a designated spot and then the whole process is like a loading screen and animation and then you are on the planet, and then when on a planet you get an option to "Go To Space", and then again animation / loading screen and you appear in space.

    One thing I was wondering about.... can we go outside in zero-g and go through the wreckage of space ships that we destroy?

    That would be kinda cool, or can npc's possibly survive their ship being destroyed, if they had a suit, or a little life pod kind of thing..... the more I think about it the more I realize, this game really is going to be modded like absolute crazy.

    well NMS is a space\exploration sim, and if your know what ur in for - you can enjoy it.

    Andromeda today is better than Andromeda on-release means nothing actually. when you ( BioWare ) brand a game with the Mass Effect title, you should know the bars are high, even very very high for a story driven game. and that didn't work. that's basically my argument, the trailers\videos o Andromeda now reminds me Starfield a bit.. and that's bad. you can't patch and\or polish a garbage story.

    and as for Starfield being a Elder Scroll\Fallout.. i sure hope not. Oblivion\Skyrim had some kind of magic to them. while the story was weak, and the game-play\combat was clunky.. the world itself, the lore etc had uniqueness you can't find in most of the good games out there. Fallout ( mostly 3 + New Vegas ) are more story-driven and they too had this unique style that made em special. so trying to duplicate an already amazing series but in *space*.. is meh in my eyes.

    i thought Starfield is aimed to be a bigger version of Mass Effect with deep characters, and a good story. from the latest videos, it's a space sim and the expectations
    are non existed because when i hear Todd saying thousands of stars to explore, i already know what it means ( no story, no script ) and a LOT of options for stealing money in the future ahead.

    i wanna come say in 2023 that i was wrong and it's a killer game. lets see.

    Well, that's Star Citizen, you can do that right now. From foot to ship to taking off to space to interplanetary travel to planet to ground to foot again seamlessly, no loading screens.

    Also Star Citizen right now :) Well, depends on the ship, and if it's in space or atmosphere, but wreckage drops and you can EVA or climb out of your ship and loot the pilot and ship containers if you can find them.

    That's a multiplayer game though, which is why I have never felt like trying it... Squadron 42 on the other hand, super looking forward to that... whatever decade it releases at least, hopefully I will still be alive.

    Just watched the gameplay demo, not really impressed by the visuals, but the atmosphere, characters etc.. seem interesting, characters do look good also, and nice character creator.
