    @GossiTheDog how much content do you believe you can play with? 40 hours? 70 hours? I am curious

    @GossiTheDog@cyberplace.social avatar

    15 hours later. At the beginning of the main quest they asked me I wanted to join Constellation, so I said no - now I'm just a freelancer.

    I shot somebody in a bar in Volli after they pulled a gun on me, which caused a riot - 23 civilians died, I have a 220k credit bounty.. so I fled the system.

    Have done 25 side quests found randomly so far, no faction quests. Got a crew of 5 randoms. Upgraded ship so I can transport 6 passengers, too - I am Space Uber.

    Set a 2001esque AI on a ship lose

    My ship has had some... upgrades.

    My character, Emily, sounds like an old woman as she's constantly coughing... I have about 8 diseases currently.

    The reason I'm dressed like a CW superhero in the final picture is because I did a quest about a rich person who had a consume, bat cave and who fought crime.. They no longer have their equipment or ship, wooops.

    theotherotherone,

    @GossiTheDog Did you finish One Small Step, the very first mission? I probably could have left it partially done, but in some ways it felt like it was almost forcing me through it. Certainly the mining part was, since you need the ship. I'm 8 hours in and thinking about starting a new char to skip the first mission as much as I can.

    @GossiTheDog That's basically how I played. I started the second mission, and don't have Vasco, but I didn't talk to Sarah to go anywhere. Hm, this may be start a new game to have the always-in-the-way Vasco, but who is helpful when fighting, or just stick with it as is.

    I like not having the context. I've seen a lot of people complain about no maps, but I sort of like that too. Just throw myself in and explore, come what may. I also love playing early missions for the first time at lvl 100 😀

    Btw I agree with many of the criticisms of in the reviews I’ve read.

    My take: while Skyrim is a power fantasy - before you even leave the tutorial area you’re taught magic etc - Starfield is a pleb simulator.

    It dunks you on a planet that looks like a car park as a miner, and depending on the background you picked you probably can’t even sneak or lockpick. You’re given crappy weapons and set free with essentially no skills.

    raineer,

    @GossiTheDog my challenge with the game is trying to understand why Bethesda doesn’t tell you more about the powers you have.

    It’s not that it takes ten hours to get good, you start with most of the powers you need (yes there’s a bit I won’t spoil in the middle) - but it takes ten hours to discover all the functionality you have because Bethesda decided to just let everyone find it on their own.

    @GossiTheDog Starfield felt like the spiritual successor of Morrowind to me, more than Skyrim or Oblivion.

In contrast to that Morrowind and Starfield just throw you out and leave you to your vices a lot more - which I personally loved!

    tanukisec,

    @GossiTheDog For me it's like Skyrim. Having storylkine and quest is fine. But it's maiunly just a massive area to dick around it. I've created a Chef with alien DNA so i can't even benefit from the food i make :D But i've had a great time planet hopping looking for cans of putine or buying up all the bourbon so i can craft all the recipes.
    It's a great chillout game. Skyrim\Fallout in space. What's not to like. I think some of the reviews expected too much. For me it's a make what you want of it sort of thing. Like building an outpost or house is ultimately "pointless" in that it brings you nothing but it's fun! And nice to craft a bit of story around your playthrough.
    I think people forget that games can just be fun and that dicking around the uinvierse doing pretty much what you please is pretty fun for the none vocal majority.

    Made the right decision waiting until so late in the game to do that questline as I was maxed on things like stealth, persuasion, pickpocketing, hacking etc.. plus had equipment with silencers etc.

    467 quests completed

    After 467 quests and 144 activities, over 200 hours, I’ve only had one quest bug and one crash to desktop. They did a really good QA job.

    The bugged quest is in Neon city, where I have to meet a gang member in a bar but the door upstairs is locked. It’s because I left the bar while an NPC was unlocking the door.. and they didn’t factor in a player doing that. Oops.

    Oh my god, they fixed the one Starfield bug I had in the next update. I’m gonna finish every quest in one save!

    Now 250 hours into Starfield, level 122. Playing in survival mode, 45% XP boost in exchange for the game being tougher in theory - although in practice, since enemies are no longer bullet sponges I'm finding combat easier.

    Spent the last two days pirating ships, stealing them, selling their goods, raiding settlements and selling contraband. 2.6 million credits in that time. Not long until I'm the Hero of Canton!

    @GossiTheDog soooo you're saying it's a good game? 😂☕👍

    I've got a whole fleet of ships in this game, but this one - the worst looking one - that I made is my favourite. It has a cargo hold 400k deep, like 21 landing gears otherwise it won't take off, and it makes no sense... Also loads of space for smuggling.

    After several hundred hours in Starfield, I just discovered there are mech factories on Mars.

    GossiTheDog,
    @GossiTheDog@cyberplace.social avatar

    Right, signing off for now, leaving my crew on Mars. Yes, I mounted an alien's head inside the ship on the wall.

    Venus according to . (Protip: if in survival mode, bring a suit that survives 350 degrees C heat or you melt after 20 seconds).

    I said "hello" to the locals here and gave them a surprise security test.

    Yes, I've discovered it's possible to build outposts into the sea, and raise animals in farms... so now I'm a sea farmer.

    Got to have goals.

    TindrasGrove,

    @GossiTheDog how many snow globes are you up to?

    I’ve only found three - not sure how many there are

    XenoPhage,

    @GossiTheDog Wait, should I be trying to "cure" my traits? I had an opportunity to lose the Neon Rat trait the other day and I skipped it because I think it's been helpful in some conversations.. I haven't seen a negative to it. At least, not yet..

    davep,

    @GossiTheDog My garden is a mess.

    @rotopenguin@mastodon.social avatar

    @GossiTheDog i would also like this "introvert cure"

    piratero,

    @GossiTheDog I wouldn’t accept religious anything. Is there an alternative path for this healing? Like a doctor?

    Burstaholic,

    @GossiTheDog watch out how much you stash in that penthouse - apparently a late main quest mission "resets" the city, which often deletes everything you've stored there 😬

    @willie@mastodon.social avatar

    @GossiTheDog I’m thinking about divorcing Sarah and romancing Andreja

    darkuncle,

    @GossiTheDog at 120+ hrs in and yet to start the main quest, I’d say so!

    @GossiTheDog I loved the Crimson Fleet questline, but was a bit disappointed, I couldn’t betray both UC and Delgado at the end. I wanted to play this as an opportunistic pirate, who plays along both factions until she finds Kryx’s Legacy and simply disappears. Did I miss something? Sided with the pirates in the end.

    rnodenis,

    @GossiTheDog does that mean you should/can/are seriously considering a real-life career change?

    nils_ballmann,

    @GossiTheDog The more I read about Starfield especially written by you, the more I think it is the game I thought No Man's Sky would be.

    anoat,

    @GossiTheDog please no shooting in Real Life

    tornhoof,

    @GossiTheDog can you do anything with the Penthouse besides putting research Station and manufacturing Table in there?

    @GossiTheDog so I think it's finally time to put my new GTX 4090 to good use and give Starfield a try. Incredible graphics!

    @GossiTheDog did you start with the Frontier or did you buy another ship?
    I quickly ran into the ship class limits. Haven't figured out how to change that.

    @GossiTheDog okay, so not only the engine, reactor and boosters are a limit, but my pilot skills. What if I hire a pilot?
    I currently hired a weapons specialist and am not sure if he does anything in a space fight. DonI have to tell him what he's supposed to do? 🤔

    @GossiTheDog Did you get your robot back? This might help:
    1- Open your Quest Log and go to Activities.
    2- Look for the Task labeled 'Retrieve Your Companion'
    3- Set this task as active.
    4- Return to your game, and you'll now see an objective marker indicating your Companion's location
    5-- Head to that marker where you will reunite with your missing companion or a crew member.

    eric_capuano,

    @GossiTheDog what’s your favorite method of generating credits? Made some good cash selling contraband, but rarely come across any :(

    tornhoof,

    @GossiTheDog might be the better idea, I just follow the Story for the first playthrough, probably half done after 16h, and it's not a good story.

    JSCybersec,

    @GossiTheDog Please tell me it's not a series of "overly dramatic" fetch quests.

    @GossiTheDog how's it running for you man?

    mryiff,

    @GossiTheDog If you need to boost your fps to handle that obscene monitor your have it looks like people have already modded in DLSS and it seems to work well so far https://www.nexusmods.com/starfield/mods/111

    @rotopenguin@mastodon.social avatar

    @GossiTheDog Bethesda should also open early access for the guy with the widest monitor around. For testing purposes.

    bakingsteele,

    @GossiTheDog I see a few folks playing too, but can't till the 6th

    defer,

    @GossiTheDog 2h playing Starfield went far too quickly.

    darkrabite,

    @GossiTheDog

    I am dying on the inside...

    fellows,
    @fellows@cyberplace.social avatar

    @GossiTheDog I’m playing here too. At least trying to find my way through it

    DaveMWilburn,

    @GossiTheDog are you wearing the spacesuit, Kevin?
