Thank you drew for everything you have done to turn Giantbomb into the beautiful beast it is today. I have been a member since the 7/21/2008. It has been an amazing time watching the site and staff grow and mature with time. The site will not be the same without you there but we will soldier on. I will keep following you on twitter to see what awesome adventures you will embark on and I will keep listening to you and Danny talk about speedy race cars. *Neeeeoooooom*

Please don't be a stranger to the bombcast for too long.

Goodnight and Good Luck.

@kcin: Not being able to play when it first came out was a bummer because I think this game is up my alley, but I understand that Hello Games is a small team and they seem dedicated to getting these problems fixed though it might just take some time. On the other hand they could have pushed the game out longer to do better compatibility and bug fixes. From what the crew was saying on UPF that they were working on this this right up to the end.

Apparently Hello Games has fixed the issue for supporting AMD chipsets that do not support SSSE3 or SSE4.1. You need to be in the experimental build for it to run.

See post here.

Looks like I might be rebuying the game when I get home...

I was willing to take the chance but I was hoping for better. Good thing I was able to get a refund.

I have been looking to upgrade for about a couple months now but I am trying to save up some money before doing so.

I know that I am in the rare minority as most pc people go, but my pc is outdated to the point that this game is not supported by my cpu and my graphics card is under the recommended specs. I am running a AMD Phenom X4 965 with a ATI Radeon 6950.

The issues I have been having with the game is it would crash right after the 'Hello Games' first screen. I did some research on the forums and noticed my cpu is old and does not supporting the SSSE3 and SSE4.1 protocol. That being said I joined the Hello Games 'experimental' beta patches in hopes of fixing the cpu problems. I got alittle further into the game to the flying stars and I got to see the 'No Man's Sky' Logo. After that fades I see flying stars for about 10-15 secs then it crashes to desktop and I atleast get a .dmp file.

So I checked my video card drivers make sure they are as up to date as possible using AMD beta drivers and I also used the openGL work around some people have used for older cards. The game crashes at the same point in the star field.

From this point, I emailed Hello Games support telling them what was going on with my system playing their game and I sent them my .dmp file and a copy of system information. In the mean time I refunded the game on Steam for the purpose that I can not play the game at all unless there is going to be some support/updates from the developer. I know Hello Games is working their asses off to get this game up and running for as many people as possible that are having problems. I was really excited to play this game but with all the problems I have encountered to JUST play the game, it is too much of a hassle. I will keep an eye out to see if any updates have fixed any problems I have but I am not holding my breath.

If anyone is interested in seeing what other problems the game is having on PC check out the Steam support page here.

I would love a separate podcast about 'Black Mirror'. Thanks to @vinny and his twitter post. I got sucked in and watched all 7 episodes over the course of 4 days. Man were they great. White Bear and white christmas were the best.
