    Weirdly, I'd say that new Elite is pretty similar to old Elite. I felt right at home in the Beta pretty much straight away, and I haven't played any space game seriously since Elite Plus and...

    The decision not to wipe Gamma progress was a bit of a suprise, but doesn't really bother me as I'm probably going to get 4 hours a week in at most so literally everyone will overtake me in the first...

    I somehow managed to miss the last day of the Steam sale a week or so ago and got through the entire thing without buying one game. I feel like a frickin' hero.

    Heh, that was part of the beauty of the original Chaos - occassionally you'd get a rubbish creature in your army (Orc, King Cobra, Bat etc) who the RNG gods smiled down on and would luck it's way...

    The AI in the original (1984 or 85) version of Chaos was great for it's time, and made playing against the computer very entertaining. Nowadays of course it would be considered crude, but a big part...

    Hmmm, not sure if it's been mentioned but a guy over on Reddit hacked the Inquisition code and managed to implement a proper tactical camera (apart from the issues indoors and, erm, under trees).

    Hmmm, taking a year off work to play WoW which subsequently cost me around 60k in lost earnings. On top of that it meant I didn't have any deposit left to buy a flat in Camden which was on at 230k...

    I somewhat agree with this as long as they ensure there are acceptable save / load speeds. The betas (and I haven't checked the latest build) sometimes had fairly long waiting times to load up.

    Highly unlikely on Elite. If I had my guess then it'll get a date very close to Oculus Rift's May 2015 retail launch - it's very much the 'killer app' for the Rift and they could piggyback off each...

    May 2015 release... doesn't feel that far off. I reckon that'll also be about the time when Elite: Dangerous is 'released' too so, erm, how can I take 2 weeks off work without the Mrs going nuts?
