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: Rosette Nebula (April Exploration Day 13)

I made it half way from the Monkey Head Nebula to the Rosette Nebula before I shut all non-essentials down for the night. It was peaceful out here, but only if you don’t count the creaking and cracking as my Anaconda lay battered and bruised, after the planetary crash landing.

The next day I awoke and plotted my course to the Rosette Nebula, a measly 1000 LY away across the galactic arm. Compared to the abyss I had previously encountered, this was an easy bit of travel.

Quite happy to have seen and cataloged yet another beautiful nebula. It won’t be long before I’m home, kicking back where I belong in either the Lave or LTT 4961 systems.
