I have pre-ordered this from a PSN sale in 2017.

Who's it directed at? Me or Thrillseeker?

Why?
I've pre-ordered a few times, and every time it's bagged me some sort of freebie. And the chance to pre-download the game which doesn't hurt.

If you know you're going to buy the game upon release, then pre-orderings a pretty sound option IMO.

I don't think I will be pre-ordering this one, might wait until it's half-price, myself.  Relieved to see it's been ported to PC, because I was very nearly going to purchase one of the latest consoles for this, but was going to anyway.

Waiting for reviews of this as though it looks great I'm not really sure how much actual "game" is in there.
Hmm, just pretend I wrote something witty eh?

This. I can't help but feel it looks like a dull demo. The game seems to involve wandering aimlessly and looking at the pretty pictures.

Now, the recently announced Wonder Boy V (or is it 6) and new Pang... That makes me excited

For real?! Was it Booths or that manky arcade on Buchanan Street that had Pang? I was a pretty handy player at one time but never did make it all the way round the world.

My main interest in No Man's Sky is that one of my favourite bands, 65daysofstatic, haven't released an album for about four years because they've been doing the soundtrack for this.

The manky one was Enterprise. But it was Booths.

The official PS blog has the skinny on the new Pang and Wonder Boy.

I'm also firmly in the No Mans Sky - Meh, New Pang - Hell Yes! camp.

Jeez, I was so bad at Pang.

However, I'm a reasonable pilot, and I love exploring strange new worlds, so I'm going to get No Man's Sky.

No Man's Sky looks a bit boring but I'm willing to reserve judgement. To be honest I'd really like to see a new Colony Wars or Rogue Leader.

Pang is a cracking game so very pleased to hear we're getting a new version (there was a pretty bad DS version subtitled 'Magical Michael' in which the game was reimagined with a magician as the main character - hopefully this one will be better).

I'm really hyped for the new Wonder Boy - or Monster Boy as it's called. It's a shame they dropped the 'Wizard of Booze' subtitle - I thought that was great. Personally I think Wonder Boy in Monster World is one of the greatest games ever made so I'll definitely be buying this. Fingers crossed for a physical release.
