If nothing else, No Man’s Sky generates incredible desktop backgrounds. After the new update, every few minutes I want to stop and take a picture of the beautiful vistas. Other Kotaku staffers are doing the same.

The community at large has also been wowed by the graphical changes, and fans are sharing their own snapshots. In particular, the ringed planets and clouds have been making a huge difference in the ambiance of planets.

Even after all this time, No Man’s Sky finds new ways to delight me. I’m still out there, looking for that perfect view.

I caved and bought it this morning. I’d been following the game for years, through the hype machine, the disastrous launch, and the early patches adding more content, just waiting until it finally looked in a stage where I was ready to jump in. Quite frankly, looks like it’s here!

Does anybody have any tips they can give me for when I get home tonight and fire it up? How likely am I to run into previously named/identified planets? How likely am I to run into Planet Dickfarts with its native species the “Butt babies”?
