I briefly saw a video of a guy play the leaked version, and at one point he was struggling with the crafting system to advance in the early game. I wanted to yell at him bc he had all the info he needed right there on the screen.
Anyway, squeezing 20 hours of genuine enjoyment + some additional fooling around out of this game is good enough for me. I prefer that to them dilating the experience by making the progression excessively slow. I don’t have unlimited time to play games anymore.
This looks like it’ll have just the right amount of carrots dangling on sticks to make it compelling + a really nice sense of design so, yeah. I’d be willing to bet that this will be worthwhile.
Plus, they’ll likely add more systems and stuff as they patch the game, I’m pretty sure.
(joke about an entirely new galaxy sold as $15 DLC that’s just a new value for the RNG seed)
