It's taken a while for No Man's Sky to get off the ground. It had one of the roughest launches in recent memory. But now Hello Games has turned it into something worth playing. And if you're one of the many who avoided its rocky launch, now might be the time to jump back in. To help entice you, there's a sale going on right now. No Man's Sky is on sale across a number of retails, so pick your favorite one between Steam, the Humble Store, and GOG.com.

Elsewhere, Steam is also discounting the Assassin's Creed franchise, while also offering a nice discount on the Pillars of Eternity series. Green Man Gaming is offering up Octopath Traveler, the Humble Store has the best of the indies, and you're running out of time to grab Destiny 2 at a discount from Blizzard before it heads off to Steam.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
