Today on Let’s Get Critical Mikey, Jarret, and Nick take a close look at the biggest and most hyped game of the year: No Man’s Sky. Did the hype kill this game or does it rise to the stars? The guys let you know exactly how they feel about the game. When it comes to the visuals, sound, and gameplay, we’ll let you know how the game holds up. Hello Games is they are shooting for the stars, creating a vast universe of potential with procedurally generated everything in the universe — from the stars to the very small and tiny creatures that might inhabit any of the planets that the player might come across.

No Man’s Sky has had a lot of attention ever since its first trailer two years ago at E3. The trailers seemed to promise a lot. Some people may have felt cheated based on what they saw, but some have also stepped up in defense of No Man’s Sky. The community before the launch of the game was very tight and was always looking forward to the release of the game. With recent delays, though, some individuals lashed out at the creators, and caused controversy among the community.

Jarret, Mikey, and Nick go over exactly what you do in the game and just how well the game does. No Man’s Sky aims high, but does it exactly live up to expectation?


Mikey Kenney

Mikey has been playing fighting games since he could reach the arcade stick and buttons. While not be ever being tournament ready he strives to do better. Loves pure action games and enjoying bonkers jrpgs. He's just you're average gaymer.

Jarret Redding

Nick Zielenkievicz

Host of WoW! Talk! and The Tauren & The Goblin. Sometimes known as the Video Games Public Defender. Wants to play more Destiny and Marvel Heroes but WoW is all-consuming. Decent F2P Hearthstone player. Sad that he lost the Wii that had Wrecking Crew on it. Would be happy if the only game ever made was M.U.L.E. Gragtharr on Skywall-US. Garresque on Ravencrest-US.
