    I think that surely has to be the point of putting headlights on the ships. Bonus points if there's some sort of mechanism where instruments can get screwed up, forcing you to navigate visually...

    1) I'm enjoying it, but it has to be said it's down to the basic mechanics of flight and fight for me - there's a good skeleton, but it's very much in a 'find your own motivation' stage. One thing...

    Didn't the emperor just die or something*, leading to potential civil war in the Empire and thus handily justifying this?

    Although I've noticed more of them myself. Even joined in, until I...

    I think that's one of the things on the 'intended but not implemented' list. Annoyingly, as I'd do the exact same with my spare Eagle.

    I'm somewhat surprised no-one has mentioned Sleeping Dogs yet, which is (rather inconsequential 'definitive edition' aside, which AFAIK just bundles the DLC and adds some extra objects and volumetric...

    GRID2 is utterly awful with a wheel, frankly (which is doubly disappointing as I had fun with the prequel).

    Nowadays my wheel just gets abused by my daughter, mind you. She apparently needs to...

    If you have the patience, there should be either some interesting new models in the new year with the next generation of (Broadwell) Intel chips (or discounts on existing ones), and then again when...

    AFAIK they host the servers using Amazon cloud, so geographic location shouldn't be an issue at least. Netcode is ok, I think, but there are still occasional hitches visible; mostly during jumps, or...

    Still haven't decided on anything, to be honest; the 13-14" market seems pretty dead for anything that isn't overtly business-y (which would be fine if there was an option for something like the Iris...

    Fair enough; the predominant aspect of reports has been the stable state of each beta build, rather than reporting issues et al.

    But reporting bugs isn't a problem for me - even if it's only one...

    I'd say it was perfect, except for the ending (whilst a great platform for reams of mods, I remember my literal reaction at the end was to say 'oh, is that it?' in a disappointed tone). In terms of...

    Mmm, good point. I don't have a problem filing bug reports, personally, although it's something I didn't really consider. I had been under the impression the current state was almost as much a...

    So, er, what stage is Elite Dangerous at in terms of playability - I mean, is it like Kerbal, where it's not officially finished but content rich enough to be worth the extra 15?

    Safari / Diving / Dinosaur games?

    As in, are there any good ones on PC?

    I'm specifically meaning the sort of non-violent (or optionally violent at least) type like Endless Ocean on the Wii, or Afrika on the PS3; something I can...

    I had a look at the Surface 3 and AMD using models, but I think they're a bit weak for me (not sure about the ability to upgrade the former, too).

  20. Laptop that can run games but isn't a _gaming_ laptop

    I'm looking for recommendations on manufacturers/builders for a 13-14" (preferably) laptop; I used to have a (slightly upgraded) MSI GX640 gaming laptop that just broke catastrophically.

    I don't...

    Er, isn't that a bit like comparing IL-2 against an RTS? They're entirely different genres, arguably even if you move the fleet management aspects into a typical space sim viewpoint.

    Pff, my first moon lander didn't have a lander - I just jumped in the air and grabbed the side. Has to be said, the only other successful landing (with a much nicer, ladder equipped, lander) did end...

    Have you played any of the games before?

    Because that's the key thing. I went through the first ones (CoD, the expansion, CoD2, Cod4:MW), and they're all more or less the same thing; which is why...
