Re: 'Evolve' and 'No Man's Sky' Win Big at E3 Game Critics ...

I really like the idea behind "No Man's Sky", but I want to see an actual gameplay demo instead of the two videos they have shown. It looks too "cgi" to me at the moment. But damn does the idea behind it get me excited and I hope to actually be able to do all of the things they have talked about.
