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: Seagull Nebula (April Exploration Days 14-15)

It took me more than an Earth day to reach Seagull Nebula after leaving the Rosette Nebula behind.

Rushing to get back to LTT 4961 (I had heard reports of a possible need for mercenaries to protect NULL), I decided to do a quick flyby of this Nebula rather than touching down anywhere. I also felt quite nervous about the fact I was carrying a lot of damage from my planet surface crash a couple of days before.

After this? Onward to investigate Thor’s Helmet!
