Me, but I'm not taking advantage of the exploits.

I haven't had the chance to play much yet as I've been too busy with house work and such, but I have I think 7 hours so far. Haven't left New Atlantis yet, just running around doing all the dumb little side quests to gain some XP.

Playing on PC. The game has tons of potential but real poor execution of a lot of things like the menu systems. Since it's on PC I can use console commands to bypass a lot of inventory management garbage. If I wanted a spreadsheet simulator I'd play EVE or something.

Mods will eventually solve this. I know there are some mods already out, but I haven't looked to see what they are.

Maybe, maybe not. My understanding is you basically start over but with your stats/achievements saved. Horizon Zero Dawn does this and it made the next round of the game not as fun IMO, but the story progression/quests and difficulty doesn't change in HZD where as SF I guess that can change?

Usually with Bethesda games I create a save right before the final decision for the storyline, finish the game to see the outcome, then reload that save and don't make the final decision and play however I want to play (go mod crazy, exploits, console commands, etc.). I try to stick to QoL mods that don't really give an advantage until that point.

Without spoiling anything the NG+ isn't like your standard NG+. Don't sweat the important decisions too much.

I had Starfield on my wishlist for a while and ran across so much negativity with launch I just stayed my hand for the time being, especially for the price. Picked up Valheim for sale, and it was already fairly cheap "full" price. Beautiful game, especially with some graphics mods. Lot of nice touches and finer details. I regret summoning the first boss because I had to run away, and it took forever for it to lose interest.. but not before tearing my house down. By the time I get tired of it, I'm hoping Starfield will have some of the gripes and bugs addressed.

I have about 35 hours in Starfield and so far have experienced little to no bugs at all. I dont see where all the negativity is coming from. My only complaint is that it starts off a bit slow. Took me a few hours before I got hooked.

My game has crashed twice since release day.

That is so far less than I remember the Fallouts and Skyrim crashing on me.

I feel like Fallout would crash once a day. Skyrim about the same.

I think I read that the Xbox Series S's are more likely to crash, idk why. Also people playing it through a browser have bad luck.

I downloaded it since it's free on Xbox GamePass. Couldn't play much the first day I had it, but played for 3-4 hours yesterday. Did the first mission where you fly to that first moon and fight the pirates in that research station or whatever.

It's interesting but I can't say it's engaging me the way Fallout 4 or Skyrim did.

It starts out slow. I really didn't get engaged until I left the main storyline and went off on my own. Picked a random planet and started exploring, found a mining facility, realized they have mission boards with random stuff to do.

Oh really? I might have to do that. I've played through Skyrim 4 or 5 different times, and that's what I did in that game. I didn't complete the main story until I was 100+ hours into the game.

The main storyline is rather bland IMO. Take this person as your crew, go here, do a simple task, get an artifact. Theres not even any challenge or long questline to get the artifacts, at least not yet. Maybe it gets better farther into the game.

It seems theres plenty to explore on planets, only downside is you have to land in a spot and then explore on foot from there. I landed at a fracking facility and there were about 10 markers on the HUD for caves and unknown POI's all within about 1500m of where I landed. New markers keep popping up as I walk. Plus tons of flora and fauna to scan and mess with. Fracking facility had a mission kiosk with 10 or so missions from hunting and killing pirate leaders to clearing dangerous animals from caves.
