Initially pegged to descend on Earth’s orbit in little over a month’s time, developer Hello Games has formally confirmed plans to postpone the release of No Man’s Sky to August 9 in North America.
Word of the delay first surfaced over the weekend, when Studio Founder and Designer Sean Murray took to PlayStation Blog to offer a status report on the new IP, revealing that as the team approached the original deadline of June 21, it became readily apparent that No Man’s Sky was in need of “extra polish” to bring it closer to internal standards.
Per Ps Blog:
The game really has come together, and it’s such an incredible relief. As we sit an play it now, and as I watch playtesters every day, I can finally let myself get excited. We’re actually doing this. However, as we approached our final deadlines, we realized that »

After rumors about it all week, Sony Computer Entertainment has confirmed that its upcoming highly ambitious sci-fi game "No Man's Sky" has been delayed by two months.
Originally slated for a late June release, it will now hit on August 9th. Director Sean Murray wrote on the PlayStation Blog: "As we approached our final deadlines, we realized that some key moments needed extra polish to bring them up to our standards. I have had to make the tough choice to delay the game for a few weeks to allow us to deliver something special."
The game has famously been in development for years and held off for a long time even announcing a release date. The original June date was the first one they set, and with most games getting delayed at least once after setting a date - this comes as little surprise. »

Hello Games’ highly-anticipated No Man’s Sky may have been delayed by up to two months, according to a story published by Kotaku yesterday.
As claimed by a “reliable Kotaku source”, the procedurally-generated space survival game has been pushed back by at least a month, and that a second source – an employee of Us retailer GameStop – has corroborated the claims by way of a notice that was provided to the retailer along with marketing materials that show the current June 21 release date.
The note reads: “The release date for No Man’s Sky has changed since the provided posters were printed. Please use a coming-soon pop-on to cover up the date and communicate as needed to your guest about the change of release.”
Despite all of the above evidence suggesting that the game has slipped from its original release date, Kotaku says that neither Sony or Hello Games’ have responded to requests for comment, »

What about Ziva? Well, fans could see the actress who played Ziva with the actor who played NCIS Special Agent Tony Dinozzo, but Cote de Pablo had said she would not return to "NCIS," so there were no new scenes for the pair. Also, Israeli officials told Tony that Ziva was dead in an explosion, but he now has the care of their daughter, Tali. (Mind = blown?) The twist gave Tony a reason for resigning his job to take his daughter to Israel for some answers.
And the twist kept Ziva in hearts and minds, even without her presence. "Were you and Ziva an item the whole time?" Timothy McGee (Sean Murray) asked Dinozzo. "We had a ... connection," answered Dinozzo, "and obviously a very fond farewell." Abby Sciuto (Pauley Perrette) told Dinozzo, »

Airing as part of IGN First, Hello Games' Sean Murray takes fans through another look at the game's procedurally generated expansive universe that's effectively as big as our own real universe. The game will hit PC and PS4 in June.

As if Hello Games’ Sean Murray had caught wind of all the concerns fans and critics alike have voiced over the potential lack of varied content in No Man’s Sky, the studio head has appeared in a new 20-minute gameplay video with IGN that shows off a bunch of new features that we’ve not seen a whole lot of previously.
Along with the usual demo footage highlighting the exploration (entering the atmosphere of a planet, having a little walkabout then heading back into space) elements and the sheer size of the game’s universe, Murray also gives fans a glimpse of the interiors of some of the space stations orbiting the millions of unexplored celestial satellites and stars.
Inside, you’ll be able to converse with Npc traders to sell and buy resources and other desirable items and, should you perish while in space, you’ll respawn inside the nearest station. »

Tonight on NCIS (CBS, 8/7c), crime is whats for dinner for McGee and Delilah.
RelatedMatt’s Inside Line: Scoop on NCIS‘s New Addition and More
In the 299th episode of TV’s most watched (and recently renewed-times-two) drama, Gibbs’ team closes a seemingly cut-and-dry case, only to each realize, later that night, that there are problems with witness testimony.
So, for example, while Dinozzo bores a date (Fairly Legal‘s Virginia Williams) with his own revisiting of the case, McGee (played by Sean Murray) is turning his and Delilah’s dinner table into a crime scene recreation, complete with corn-on-the-cob cars. »

The ratings keep coming down but NCIS remains the most-watched TV show on network television. Will the numbers continue to dwindle downward in season 13? Will it ever be cancelled? Is it already a lock for a 14th season renewal? Stay tuned.
On NCIS, Jethro Gibbs (Mark Harmon) and his team of special agents continue to investigate crimes that involve the U.S. Navy and Marine Corps. Co-stars are Michael Weatherly, Pauley Perrette, Sean Murray, Brian Dietzen, Emily Wickersham, Rocky Carroll, David McCallum, and Mimi Rogers.
