It looks as aesthetically pleasing as a mayo sandwich.

Hopefully they'll show off more planets and biomes that don't seem so sterile.

Of course they wont that is the moders job.

Looks pretty good, hoping it might look a bit better on PC. Will definitely be buying it, although tired of shooting games in general, it looks like there's plenty of other content mixed in.

If it's basically Skyrim in space I'll be happy with it. I like what I see of the game and especially character creation. The storyline hints gave me a bit of a Mass Effect feel, too.

Being able to build and fly a ship is a nice touch. I'm there for it.

I have Game Pass, so why not? If it's a massive disappointment the only added cost was time and bandwidth.

Now it just needs 64 player servers and universal cloth simulation.

That looks monumentally bland both visually and gameplay wise.

It looks fine enough to me, if the game is good. That's the rub.

I didn't love Fallout 3 or Skyrim so much because they had the most cutting edge graphics at the time - neither of them did. I loved them because the games were fun, and the graphics were good enough that their art direction could still provide for a good feeling in the game world.

There's a minimum level of quality I'm looking for, but once that minimum is met the rest is on gameplay, writing, art direction, etc..

I think I got more out of Starflight 1 and Starflight 2 back in the 1980's then I did from recent space games. This doesn't look any different.

You don't play Bethesda games for the graphics.

I don't understand this game.

I know it's ambitious, I know they have supposedly been working on it a long time. I know it's supposed to be one of the greatest of all-time, but WTF is it?

Is this just 'No Man's Sky' but good?

No, This is "No Man's Skyrim"

A person is chosen by their Randy "Macho Man" Spaceship to spread chaos and insanity throughout the galaxy.  But the side quests will be the real reason to play.

I think its "Outer Worlds" but good.

That's not totally fair. Outer Worlds did a lot of things right, it just had way too narrow a scope for a sandbox.

I'm stoked for Starfield because it looks like they've de-wonkied the outpost building from Fallout 4 and YOU CAN DESIGN AND BUILD YOUR OWN SPACESHIPS.

That alone is worth a purchase (6 months after release when they've patched it to a playable state).

Aesthetics aren't just graphics though. That's why I said aesthetics.

Fallout has a specific aesthetic to it, so does Elder Scrolls. This just looked clinical by comparison, no style to it, but it's still early and not a lot has been shown.

Which is why I hope they show off more planets with some personality to the art design instead of looking like screensaver backgrounds.

Why do I think that instead of being a Hoarder Sim like Fallout 4 was, this is going to turn out to a Furious Recruiter Sim?

I mean, yeah, you'll need resources to build stuff, but I kind of like the idea that you'll need people to run your base and your ship, so you're going to be constantly looking for people to park in your bases and ships to fill slots, and then recruit more when you upgrade your ship again and again.

I think it's actually got a nice aesthetic to it, with some nods to 70s, 80s and 90s science fiction illustrations, and I'll reserve judgement on the weapon customization and vehicle customization, but it looks like you will get out of it what you invest into it. Especially with bases being important for resource acquisition. It's a Bethesda game, so you have an idea of the basic play style and the real thing in question is the story. Well, that and how stable it will be at launch. It can look great, but if it crashes like Fallout 4 did, it's not going to be worth the hassle.

I'm tentatively interested, but Bethesda has hurt me before with the over promising. Just give me a decent game, and let it do the talking.

Personal opinion, obviously, but this appears to be a context-free story.

With TES and FO there's a rich background, which embiggened the games (FO3 et al, TES V) in present-time.

I like what Bethesda do, honestly. But I'm still wondering why I should care about this particular game or the story it probably has to tell.

Yet again, I'll reference The Witcher 3. You're dumped into a world where characters care about you, and it's up to you to decide whether and how you care about them. The story is immediate, and the results are profound.

From what I see of Starfield, it just leaves me cold. Just another space game, like The Outer Limits.

From Bethesda I want less, "Huk huk this is cool" and more "No matter what I do, I destroy myself. There is no right path".

I do wonder about that customization aspect though. Am I going to be able to get a reasonable facsimile of Pooh the Honey Warrior?

Because I don't know if it will be worth it if I can't specialize in knocking over alien bee hives and getting stuck in alien trees.

I think they're just being super cagey about the story at this point, and they may still be tuning/writing it while the tech team is trying to get the systems built up.  We saw some neat fauna, and some pirates, and not a lot else; I've gotta imagine this is like seeing a teaser for Skyrim where you're fighting some wolves and bandits.  That's really not representative of the story, though they ARE present.  This was more of a tech/look/gameplay preview, not a story preview.

But yeah; I play Fallout games for the story/setting, not the mechanics.  While the mechanics (especially ship design) get me excited, I'm gonna need more if it's gonna be a 200+ hour investment like it usually is with Bethesda games, for me.

Is it too early to start the campaign to get Obsidian to make Starfield New Vegas?

Trait--Kid Stuff... Your parents are alive and well and you can visit them but 10% of your income is sent to them.
WTF is this? A way to bank money and heal and portal to a major hub when broke or a outlaw?

Some of those skills and traits seem pretty wacky.
And the challenges--Kill 250 enemies with a ballistic weapon to upgrade weapon range. This isn't a stealth game or at least not that path. Maybe there is a collect 250 bottle caps while stealth challenge.

Hardly any game can come close to the Character Builder from City if Heroes / Villains. I am nervous that character building from a stats/class/skills perspective looks very 1 dimensional. For glance, the game play does not look very fluid or dynamic or varied which is a big one. From what we have seen, you can run and jump with gravity affecting your jumping (which honestly is going to feel either very restrictive or overly floaty - think ME1 Mako controls which were terribad). Where is the cover shifting? Sliding? Blocking? Corner peeking? Blind firing? How are they going to balance melee to feel worthwhile and fun?

I feel this will fall victim of Skyrim and pretty much every other RPG shooter in that sniping and sneaking will trivialize all the content also. You run into a major balance issue with ranged combat especially to where there is a find line between bullet sponges and trivial content. Fallout suffered in a very similar sense in my opinion with the transition away from turn based to RT.

If it is a sandbox, there needs to be a shiat load of progression and combat needs to be fun and challenging. Those are the fundamentals of success with this style of game. No progression really and you just kind of have a weak shooter you'll end up losing interest of. Poor combat mechanics and the only thing driving the game is the grind. The very first goal of RPGs that are not exactly linear, should be passing a litmus test - is the game fun to play by itself, even after you have maxed out your character? If the answer is no, start over.

I'd buy a new XBox and Starfield before I put any money towards Star Citizen.
