No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.

I think they might be screwed if the AMD processors are not going to work. I'm kinda pissed, but I didn't have a lot of hope for it. I am just playing Spore now becuase it is the closest I can think of to play.

Won't play on my computer, got the same error you did. Loaded on the laptop but it stuck going through the many colored space/stars thing.

My gaming rig is still out for repair so I may have to refund and try again when it's on sale.

Yeah, my view is -$10 per week it isn't working. The floor is $10 if they can get it to work.

I am starting to think they knew they were screwed by design and will just accept the lower payout.

Looks like I made the right choice with the PS4 version

I'd get this if it weren't so expensive..

It's working for me (though my brother says it doesn't).

Plus it was a birthday gift so I didn't spend any money.

I'm on a planet of constant acid rain, birds flying like kites with the occasional wings of spaceships.

Is it perfect? No, nothing in life is. But I'm on a facsimile of another planet, with herds of alien animals on the plains below.

Well the positive news for me is that it runs at least. But it seems poorly optimized. I will wait for patches. (Framedrops for me.)

Your gaming rigs break too often. You should let me build your next one for you.

I was bored and bought it in a moment of weakness (was playing Bravely Second but my 3DS ran out of juice and I can only charge it in the corner of my room where I can't sit).

The game runs fine on my system, if a little choppy. It's a kinda simple game, a bit like Spore's space phase from a different point of view. And about as exciting if I'm honest.
It's slow and seems to lack variety. But then it's also neat because it feels big. But then it's empty. But then it's peaceful.
So I have no idea how I feel about it yet.

All that aside I still do not like the price. It is absolutely overvalued for the experience it offers. It's a simple game, not very complex. The only management you do is inventory and fuel/power for devices or your ship. Beyond that it's a vast universe of similar noise.

Still gonna play it for awhile more. Might as well. 220 minutes or something on Steam so I'm married to it now.
But I'd value it at 30 bucks tops.

Sounds like you lucked out. Nobody should be forced to play a Bravely Default game.

You should save up 25 bucks and pick up A-Train City Simulator 3D on the 3DS. Others are finally buying it. Do it too! :3

With the volume of complaints they are getting I'd be surprised if they held people to the two hours... it might take them that long to even get it going.

Played through Spore again, since I can't play NMS. AH, nostalgia.
