    They backtrack almost as hard as MS. But good good, I might have saved up enough for a controller by the time "snapshot" mode is available. :)

    I'll bet it is... do I win a free copy of the game?

    (PS, it's an unfair bet so I'll decline, as technically all computer games are just carefully disguised progress bars. ;) )

    There is backwards compatibility. It's via refactoring/recoding/re-releasing though. As said, this means "emulation" must do similar. It's no longer about emulating the instruction set, but...

    You'll need dedicated individual game ports. Such as those occasionally done for PC/Dos games (Descent/SimCity/Transport Tycoon/Quake etc). However, as this type of "emulation" requires the original...

    To get a new Wired or Wireless (wired avoids batter swaps and about a 10nner) 360 controller or not... Hmmm. My existing still works, but is about 7 years old or more, and one button does not work...

    Time dilation does not, it's a result of acceleration. It requires a lot of fuel, or long term "sleep". :P

    But yes, Elite went for the right solution. Both mechanically and thematically. That's...

    Most if not all scaling in games I've played has been broken. It either allows for negating it, so it challenge drops to zero, or overreacting so challenge becomes impossible.

    Only when it's gated. As it's usually unfairly gated at that... with 100% run through needed or impossible odds RNG bonus round achievement unlocks. :(

    Sorry to rain on the parade, but the only plausible way is to add more thrusters (you only ever "go" FTL via time dilation you see), or more specifically delta-v. Any FTL system is by definition less...

    True, though some side step the problem by showing they are not real mental asylums, but excuses to lock up people by the authorities (the big bad in the game). Still, it's horrid for the other games...

    I'd second Kerbal Space Program. It's actually fun to fail, and when you get into space it feels great. Then you realise you can "go anywhere" and that's amazing. Getting to the furthest point you...

    I don't think many people worry about the handling in Tie Fighter. Which is why I'm at a loss over complaints to NMS on it's "sim" ability. :(

    Fair play systems. You character has to eat and drink 24 7 in survival, but all other NPCS? Invincible.
    Well, some games do it ok, or at least try. Others just make is frustrating.

    Wait what? What the? No. Your saying Elite and SC will eat the entire market for games. Because you cannot mean "eat the entire market for space flight sims" as this is more than a flight sim.

    I admit "walking simulator" was only a very small aspect of the game. It is still more about the journey, than matching the sim to reality. It's more like FTL, you remember the journey and what...
