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: Heading ‘South’ (April Exploration Day 2)

Leaving behind the California Nebula, I made my way out to 4000LY ‘south’ of Sol on day two.

I did find myself in a little bit of a rift at about 2000LY, where the stars seemed quite spaced apart, so I did move closer to the galactic plane to find more stars around that distance.

Along the way I found some fabulous views of the side of Barnard’s Loop, and discovered two Earth-like worlds!
