It's a good price, and I would give green if it was any other game released at the same point.

This particular game however was such a disappointment, that I simply cannot support any deal on it higher than $1. Even then, it's not worth the time to play with so many better options available.

  Honestly this is a really good deal for a big game released only months ago and although I would say I was disappointed too after paying full price for it, but I still put 40+ hours on it and I feel like I got more than $25.00 out of it, for sure. They say there are a lot of new features coming up for free soon'ish too. (I know they don't exactly fulfill promises very well though....)

Fair enough.  I probably spent about 15 hours on it.  2 hours trying to get it to run, 2 hours of figuring out the mechanics and exploring, and the rest just aimlessly grinding away thinking that it's going to get good later - that there's going to be a payoff to progressing through this stuttering mess.  The game reminded me of 9th-grade math class where I would keep adding 1 on my calculator until I got to 8008.  

Those 15 hours was not entertaining, and only served to teach me to don't waste time on something meaningless and boring, even if I did drop $60 on it.  It's a sunk cost.

A "substantial" update is coming out next week: http://arstechnica.com/gaming/2016/11/no-mans-sky-will-blast-off...

I haven't played it yet, but was willing to give it a try at ~$11.

Update is out. Here's a story on the changes including the full patch notes: http://www.gamespot.com/articles/huge-no-mans-sky-update-arrives...

The patch also adds three new game modes, each featuring different rulesets:

  • Normal mode is the original chilled exploration experience
  • Creative mode allows players to explore the universe without limits, and build a huge base
  • Survival mode really changes the game, creating a much more challenging endurance experience

As for the base-building feature, you can create an outpost using "modular structures and decorations," made using resources you find while exploring the game world. You can also do the following with the base-building feature:

  • Recruit alien lifeforms to help research new technology. Farming, engineer, weapons and science specialists are hirable from Space Stations
  • Use Terminus Teleporters in Space Stations to teleport to and from your base at will
  • Expand your base with storage containers to stockpile precious resources and rare products
  • Find an even more beautiful location and you can simply dismantle your previous homestead to refund all of the spent resources

The No Man's Sky Foundation update also adds a farming system and the ability to purchase and customize interstellar freighters to transfer resources, while new biome and star-specific resource types can be discovered; they can then be used to craft new items.

There are also visual changes in this update, as motion blur has been added to "accentuate the feeling of speed, particularly when in-flight." You can turn this on or off from the Options menu. Temporal Anti-Aliasing has also been implemented. This should remove "jagged edges" and is also optional.
