No Man's Sky fans are buying a billboard to say thank you to Hello Games →

It's been a heck of a journey for No Man's Sky: From massive hype to major letdown, consumer complaints, feelings of abandonment, weird ARGs, big promises, more hype, and a slow, relentless effort to build the game into something resembling its early promise. It's actually pretty close to that mark now, and the No Man's Sky fanbase is doing something pretty cool to express its gratitude to Hello Games for sticking with it.

While other studios could (and likely would) have easily cut their losses and moved on to something else following the rocky launch back in 2016, Hello Games put in the time and effort — particularly with the Next update in 2018 and Beyond coming later this year — to add TONS of new content and features to the game.

It's great to see the team getting recognized by their fans for their hard work and dedication. It's also heartwarming to see extra money from the campaign going to help sick children.

Observation review: A chilling sci-fi thriller →

The space station Observation has broken away from its Earth orbit and is drifting somewhere near Saturn. Its systems are malfunctioning, a fire has broken out, and the on-board artificial intelligence, SAM, is acting strangely. Things are not looking good for Dr. Emma Fisher, the reluctant, resourceful hero of this sci-fi thriller from the studio behind Stories Untold.

But what's interesting about Observation is that you don't play as Fisher. Instead, you play as SAM, her AI helper.

As if there weren't enough games to play right now, Observation sounds like another one to add to the pile... as much it pains me to go through the Epic Games Store to get it.
