Default Elite Dangerous

The same company that released the all time classic space simulator game 'Elite' has released a modern version as per the thread title.

Same core game (Trading/Combat) but with modern graphics. So if your into sci-fi style games, this will blow your socks off.

It looks awesome but after being disappointed by the previous sequels, I am tempted to stick with the timeless original. I never made it to Elite but I did get to deadly.

Looks really cool, but I've never been good at live action games. Whats it really cost totally to play, I see they are promising a Mac version? It would be cool to place some online games again.

I bought the PlayStation 2 and got Rachet & Klink and still have not won the dammed hovercraft race in over 14 years of playing.

I was at one time, however a tournament strategy war gamer and used to be able to kick ass in TOAW, Harpoon (all versions), and other strategy games. Changing to a Mac really hosed my gaming though, main reason I still keep VMWare up to date and have WinXP, WinME, and Win95 VMs. Been meaning to build a dos VM for all my old Dos Games. Still play rogue in a linux VM occasionally.

I bought this game pre-release as I used to play Elite on BBC Micro and Sinclair Spectrum + as a kid.

I'm still saving up for a system that will actually run this new version as you need a quad core PC with at least 8GB of RAM and a deent graphics card.

Wait a minute I built one of these 3 months ago....Pity my son won't let me anywhere near it.

Essentially the concept is the same as the original but with cinematic quality rendering. I've been watching a lot of the pre-release video's and the game is truly stunning. They've even used real galaxy mapping to plot the systems. Also the economy system is real time based on actual game player trades. This is why you need to be connected all the time.

Most games these days should be looking good...but do they play good...bit of a plot and varied gameplay, and other factors to consider.

I play point and click games every once and again if the story is good, other than that video games bore me

If you are into adventure games, try YESTERDAY, by far best one there is and the story will blow you away

Been spending SO much time on this game, that Ive now regressed back to my teens, and become an obnoxious, stinky animal, relying on a diet of pot noodle and cola. And my acne has returned and is terminal.

But - I'm now flying around Sol and the outlying systems in a Viper with all the trimmings and got my combat ranking to Novice.
