I continued assassinating criminal targets recently, trying the Asp, but found the repair bills to be too large to make it a viable combat vessel. I also tried the Viper, but it seems to have changed enough since my grandfathers day, it doesn’t suit my combat style at all.
Some footage of my last couple of kills.
So I returned once again to the Cobra, which suits me nicely. I do miss the Sidewinder and Eagle, but they’ve become increasingly risky with big targets, which sort of makes space combat a lot less fun…
So, having failed to find anything out about my grandfather’s history in the Alioth System, I set out into the galaxy. I’m currently 1000LY from home and have visited the Pipe and IC 4604 Nebulas.
IC4604 Nebula was absolutely breathtaking. I’m really glad that I made the trip. It’s spurred me on to travel even further into the galaxy and see other Nebula I’ve only heard stories about…
The first 1000LY of my journey.
My first space game addiction was with David Braben's 'Frontier - Elite II' released in 1993 on the Commodore Amiga. This game actually gave me so much of what I wanted in a game that I continued to play it until the 'Elite - Dangerous' release in 2014.
I also played through the 'Wing Commander' series from Chris Roberts, enjoying them immensely. This led directly to my support of his 2012 crowdfunding campaign for the Star Citizen and Squadron 42 games that are still in development.
I use space games to try to escape from the pressures of real life. I occasionally upload or stream gameplay to YouTube and Twitch.
