    I know No Mans sky is big, but I have a question about base building. How can you build a base in the game and have it remain there for good? With the amount of people playing won't your base eventually just become one large city due to  other people building bases that remain for good?
    you say you know NMS is big... I actually think you need to think more about it.... it is REALLY big!.

    ie every single player could have their own entire planet and it would still be a tiny fraction of a percentage of the planets in the game.

    Elite Dangerous is mind bogglingly huge and NMS is bigger than ED.
    That said IF certain planets are more popular than others and you did end up with a sprawling city of bases... so long as HG have the infrastructure to support it then, imo that would be pretty amazing.
    Fiat Coupe, gone. 350Z gone. Dirty nappies, no sleep & practical transport incoming. Thank goodness for VR :)

    Yeah this looks awesome, I'm definitely going to get this for sure, do we just install the normal 2D game and that gives you access to VR version?

    @SkScotchegg - Yes the 2D will just update allowing you to play in VR. I'm just wondering if you can use a joystick to fly with or if you have to use touch controllers.

    Nice 1 cheers.

    Oh yeah good point, I wonder if we can use all forms of controllers, keyboard+mouse, Joystick and/or Xbox Wireless joypad? Does anybody know?

    The horror ... the horror.... 

    No man's sky and children

    I don't usually play online games except for pavlov and arizona sunshine but I thought I'd try echo vr yesterday for the first time, I was the only adult in the lobby, just little kids messing about, I left disillusioned. With the imminent release of no man's sky beyond , do you think it will be full of small children? or am I being a grumpy old man? I've played online with young adults and they've been good, better than me usually, it's just little kids with consoles not interesting in playing I'm worried about. Is there a way to prevent other players from seeing you? Can you play with friends in a group of four and be invisible to other users? Your thoughts and advice are welcomed.

    @RuneSR2 - Do you have to play in groups or can you still play multiplayer alone? I don't mind seeing others players around me, but I don't want to start joining groups and then getting lots of friend requests on Steam just because I decided to play with a bunch of people.
    I'll be avoiding the groups with kids though because just the voices are enough to do my head in after a short period of time. On saying that, I've also played in clans with the older players and even some of them did my head in :D
    I just like to play single player now, but still be part of the multiplayer. I guess I could just join a group and just leave if it's not for me.

    I only played the pancake version for maybe 30 minutes, but back then I was alone. Died alone too :blush: I guess it's ok to meet other people in NMS, as long as they're small dots of pixels in the horizon and don't rekindle my social phobia  :D

    Anyone know the exact time of this release (12:00am on the 14th PST?), because my leg is starting to hurt and I might need to take the day off. ;)

    Upload: This is a really long shot but, Oculus Quest?

    SM: Yeah. I’ve been playing it a lot, actually, and it’s lovely.

    Upload: It’s the best. But… 

    SM: Yeah. There is a future there, right, for that kind of device, right?

    Stupid question alert: If I buy a game from a non Oculus provider (Steam or Humble Bumble) I imagine they are playable on the Oculus platform but is there a performance hit? I was under the (mis?) impression that with Steam there are one or more helper apps that have to be run at the same time.

    Yes you just turn install from unknown sources in settings.

    WOW good question. Most great games though use the oculus sdk too, and not openvr / steam vr for oculus I think. I bought it on steam had to. For this price, and if I upgrade to Index, I want to have it on steam of course. I almost buy everything on steam guys unless its exclusive like that spy game I got month or so ago...

    It makes so much sense, as who knows what VR we will have in 2-5 years. I do plan on getting an index for sure, it looks to beautiful. I have the S now.

    Every week I put it in the steam cart, I almost pulled the trigger last weekend :)  I love my S, don't get me wrong, but Index looks freakin awesome. Plus, I so hate the sound, I was still waiting for them to make it much louder, but I don't think they can at this point. Such a shame. My ears are weird or something and nothing sticks in them, so I barely hear anything when I play, I'm not a big sound guy though.

    Now the hourly countdown begins. I think VR gamers are more excited for this update than anyone else. Speaks volumes doesn't it.

    I always wanted to get out of my ship in ED and have a stroll around on the planet. I also would like a Millennium Falcon kind of ship that while travelling through space you can put it on auto pilot, get up and walk around, so its kind of an Oculus home in space.
