So No Man's Sky is finally out, and the reception has been anything but universal (ironically). While there are those who seem to be disappointed by a lack of features that were never explicitly advertised, others are enjoying the game for what it does offer (primarily, a fully explorable and incredibly vast procedurally-generated universe). Unfortunately, there does seem to have been some developer deception about the game's apparently non-existent multiplayer component. That being said, the game still may well be worth checking out, but given the game's already divisive reputation, waiting for a discount is probably the best course of action.
Also out in the last four weeks, a unique-looking swimming simulator from the art director of Flower and Journey, a new, yet classically-inspired, Square Enix RPG, and an expanded PS4 port of a 2014 PS3 JRPG. Why not try a holiday in Sweden this year? Jump past the break to see more of this past month's new releases.
