Interestingly, a lot of people are not satisfied by the current promises of Odyssey. Well, people being people, perhaps not very surprising. Everybody seems to want to walk around the ship. Which... Ok, but what will I do? Make coffee? Manually repair stuff? I don't want in-ship gameplay, at least not as a priority. I want more things to find out there, more danger to galaxy.
The only concern I have is will the new additions make any real impact. Better planetary surfaces are really cool, but how many times will I see them? Will I have any real reason to land on planets - and will taking a sample in every 1000th system really be the only reason to walk as an explorer?
I remain optimistic and mainly - with the hours spent in the game, with the sanity it helped me retain at the utterly crappy times at work - I'll buy anything they make.
