Sat at the bar in NULL-controlled Conway City the other evening, someone asked whether I had visited Ariel. Apparently the canyons and ridges were a sight to behold, so I decided to make my way over to the Sol System (permit required) and take a look…
Edited highlights from my Ariel exploration!
I have to say that this is one of the most wonderful places I have been to, and who knew that mankind would have somewhere so nice, this close to home? With incredibly deep canyons, high mountainous ridges and spectacular views of Uranus and Barnard’s Loop, it really is awesome!
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.
