Alex Garland's latest, albeit first time he's directed as well. Good stuff, dealing with AI and felt like a nice balance between Bladerunner and the somewhat soppy lightness of Her.
I would definitely buy it if it's on sale, there's enough entertainment there already, let alone if they keep improving it.

It's definitely an Elite games still in development, that's enough to make it playable as a space game, but I think you'd be disappointed at the lack of planet flight. Probably best to wait and see...
Well in fairness the trailer is a lot less silly than the EVE Online trailer that came out last week, or COD and it's random hot girl in skimpy clothes.
Some of the balance and gameplay decisions...
Yeah good point, if you get a rough hand of cards or that unlucky on summons/combat, at least it gives you a way of still competing to the end. It was definitely the double casting of mega bolt in...
Played and won my first game last night, a 4way which I really enjoyed. I like the card burning for mana, as it kind of makes illusions even more powerful, as it's easier to cast difficult 'real'...

Well I'm in game now.
Some nice visual improvements to the interface, the route planner is ok but limited to 50LY. So for rare good style journeys still need to use an external planner, but it...

Back in my ASP, going to upgrade it then just muck about with combat and pirating.
I backed it on kickstarter, not actually played a game yet, just watched the Gollop Whallops (Julian playing random players).
The bit I really want is the campaign, as I loved Lords of Chaos even...

Oh there is no question they have a lot of stretched things due to lack of content. The cost of ship upgrades as is another great example, you need to pay around 6 to 7 times the cost of each ship to...

This is a really good route planner, still work in progress obviously, but does the job:

Got a nasty bug with universal cartographics, seems to have been affecting quite a few players on and off in Gamma. If you've got more than 5 systems scanned, and try to sell the data, then it...

UK time, probably around Lave.
Tonight at 8pm UK time there may also be something going on in Lave with the community stream.

Saturday 9pm is a streamers co-op thing, http://www.twitch.tv/sharpshifter and others.
Good spot, have fond memories of the books so will give this a look.

Yeah think they've realised they need to make some amends :p
I did pick up the Viper gold paint job as well, it was just too tempting. I will be messing about the rest of Gamma in an upgraded...

I've been experimenting with hauling rare goods. I believe at about 180LY they pretty much max out in price, which is about 18,000 per tonne for Eranin Whisky for instance (which is bought for 1,600...
It's got some very rough edges and frustrating bits for sure, when it comes together though, it's great fun.
25-11-2014, 12:22 AM
I think they will, as there's still a fair amount of balancing to be done and there's been at least one direct money exploit and the big bounty hunting missions need fixing as well. It's also already...

Clear Save is under options I believe. To be honest I'm tempted on release to just sell it, use the cash to go from Sidewinder to Hauler.

Well I had an interesting time exploring with my eagle in a load of systems I'd never been before. The money is quite hit and miss with the basic discovery scanner, however there are way more planets...

Some server disruption atm as they're implementing a fix for the Eagle locations:
22-11-2014, 04:35 PM
Right now I'm exploring in my eagle, gradually working my way towards a hi-tech system as I want the detailed scanner. I'm also submitting to interdictions to kill pirates on the way.
I check out...

Well I got in, finished couple of missions and about to pick up my eagle - which you can see on System View which port it's in as a blue ship icon. Now waiting eagerly for server to come back up :D ...

It's up, randomised starting locations as well it seems. I'm 70LY from Eranin.
