Elite Dangerous

I have wanted to get my hands on this game for a long time but the initial asking price was way out of my range. Steam recently had a sale on and I got it for a 10 quid. This seems to be the way I get all my games now.

I had heard that docking was particularly hard so I was looking forward to having a crack at that. Look away now because this is the bit where I say it’s easy and come across as a massive big head. It was easy. Really easy. It was a luxury to have so many dimensions to move about in. Didn’t quite line up right? no problem just put some sideslip in and if you want a bit of yaw while not moving and worrying about hovering. You space cadets have it easy πŸ™‚

I played the original Elite (yep I’m that old) way back in the day. I didn’t really get into it but I had a lot of fun travelling around. The inerface and UI in the various menus in this game are the best I have ever seen and add so much to the pleasure of playing. I have only gone through the training menus so far and over the X-Mas period I will dive in more deeper. So far so good.

    I pretty much have gone to Steam as my purchase point. You just can’t pass up a game that you want when it is usually deeply discounted during their sales, available immediately and automatically updated.

      Yep. Got my eye on Gary Grigsby’s War in the East but I can’t see this on a 75% sale πŸ™‚
