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: Free The Slaves

Since leaving Lave and even during my time within the Empire rising to the rank of King (a meaningless and empty title that didn’t answer any of the questions I had within the Achenar System), I have avoided contact with slavery. I’ve taken a few missions that involved freeing them, but that’s it.

When I saw the emancipation initiative in the Uibuth System, I just had to take part. I had to do my part. It is truly a barbaric anachronism that I hope one day will be eradicated from the galaxy as a whole. The very fact that you can buy and sell slaves by the tonne is wrong. It’s that simple.
