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.

 

Elite Journal: Mitterand Hollow (Epsilon Indi System)

After laying waste to some scurvy dogs in the Hazardous Resource Extraction site in LTT 4961, I retired to the local bar once again to discuss events with my mates. One of them mentioned a sight he’d seen barely a few days prior when delivering a leathery egg to a penal colony in Epsilon Indi. He said there was a moon that orbited so quickly, you could watch an eclipse two or three times every minute!


Edited highlights from my Mitterand Hollow exploration!

This was a great place to have visited, maybe even worth a return visit with an SRV someday!
