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.

The trip to Sagittarius A* was an amazing achievement, one that led me to spend quite a lot less time in space for a bit. I guess I just couldn’t look at another star!

After a small break, I did begin to get back to work, and knowing that I wanted to get somewhere with the Empire, I fought for them in various conflicts.

I soon ended up with my Imperial Summons to Achenar, allowing me to search the Imperial records for mention of my family. As I’ve said before, it is confusing to me that someone can be so unaware of their roots… I KNEW my family came from the old Alliance world of Leesti and Lave, but I was wrong.

Searching through the records, I found mention of him being a double agent… How can I accept this? Do I pledge allegiance to the Empire?

I decided to gain rank, seeing how high ranked I could become and to try to get access to Facece (home of the Imperial Navy)…
