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: Facece Empire Capital Ship Debris

Information might not be up-to-date.

Passing through the Facece System on my way to my bounty hunting weekend location, I intercepted a distress call and dropped out at a nearby Capital Ship navigation signature to get more information; I found a huge ball of debris from what appears to be wreckage of a capital ship… Imperial ships swarmed the area pretty quickly, but whatever did this was big – very big…

What happened? This is still a total unknown. I am sure details and information will emerge over the coming weeks and months…
