Space Games

I owned an Amiga A600 and anticipated owning Frontier: Elite II hugely, watching a rolling demo of the intro sequence movie from the coverdisk of CU Amiga (Nov. 1993) as I went to bed at night! The game was given to me that following Christmas, and I never really looked back, continuing to play the game in some form until 2014!

Elite II really was an amazing game, because although I played through the Wing Commander series, the X series by Egosoft, and even EVE Online, I always went back to Elite.

Despise initial concerns from me during the Kickstarter campaign about timing, I am actively playing Elite: Dangerous, the long-awaited game from David Braben. With ED I actually once again feel like I can escape life.

I also backed Star Citizen on Kickstarter, this game from Chris Roberts (of Wing Commander), and I'm quite excited to see where that goes with both the Squadron 42 single player and multiplayer versions of that.

After getting back from my exploration of some Nebulae within 7000LY or so, I went back to my roots. I spent a significant amount of time around Alliance space ‘banging the rust off’ my combat skills in ships like the Viper…

…then, eventually, the Vulture.

Now, the Vulture is a special ship! It is very combat capable and extremely maneuverable. Although I am expecting the manufacturer to patch the firmware at some point and effectively ‘nerf’ the effectiveness in some way, right now? It’s awesome.

I took my Vulture on quite an adventure in a fairly short amount of time! Whether it was fighting for the CSG in Lugh…

…or trying to defend the Alliance in Lave:

Where did I get to with my search for information on my family? Well, I’m hoping to have some news about that very soon…
