Default Elite: Dangerous

(Couldn't find a thread for this - if there is one, please point me in the right direction!)

So - Elite: Dangerous....

Anyone playing it yet? I downloaded it on Friday and have found it difficult to drag myself away from it! Currently in beta. A little pricey, but well worth it.

I remember playing Elite on the Commodore 64 back in the early 80s, so this is a great nostaligia trip. But ED is just great - with lots of potential.

So yeah ... if anyone else is playing I hope to see you out there ...

There are plenty of resources on the web that give more info. Anyone who remember's the original will appreciate some of the nice touches they've put into it.

It's very promising, but will also have some competition from the likes of Star Citizen, which also looks pretty good.

I want Freespace 3. Although it would most likely suck, given the current route video games are taking.

User Ubaydah: "I used to play Call of Duty a lot and Battlefield 3. I am really good at those games 10th prestige, High K/d., I can kill people easily, etc. But on PR, for me, to be honest, I kind of suck."

User Not_able_to_kill: "Frontliner, you like evil man who comes to family house during christmas, takes out tree because it's too happy, so they can be just as sad as you"

Been playing it for a while.

This was my first few hours of it about 2 months ago when I got it, I adapted pretty well since I'm a simmer:




Then I got to play online with another friend a bit later:




In anycase I have upgraded to the VIPER and am MUCH much better than those two vids. The Viper is like dogfighting in an SR-71, and just like it, I don't need any defenses. I just hit the afterburner and fly away from the threats.

I'm working on another video at the moment, but after this I might record some VIPER footage. I just want to do this with a friend and he's like never on.

I've been on a bit of a gaming hiatus, but I did pay for access. I'm looking forward to playing it.

Why are they charging $75 for this? Nobody will buy it.
