Elite Dangerous

As some of you are in their vintage gaming years (30+) I just wondered if anyone has tried this? It's in the preview program at the moment and all I can say is its amazing! Has its bugs here and there but put it next to most gold releases its amazing! Well worth the 25!

I've been playing it for a week. It's pretty amazing and time consuming. Needs a fair bit of optimizing still, especially when travelling through/coming out of hyperspace, had a couple of random crashes etc. But on the whole, it's pretty awesome now I've gotten used to the controls.

I find it quite relaxing, and have quite enjoyed exploring unmapped systems, scanning everything there and then selling the data.

Agree, well worth the 25, everyone should own it.

Agree it needs a bit of optimising as the CTD seems to be caused by graphics/processor heating on Xbox itself. If you can keep box cool then it's fine...but a little hard with weather the way it is. Currently running a 95% upgraded vulture if you ever need an escort doozy

Nice! I'm still flying about in my Sidewinder, but thats alright for what I'm doing. Haven't yet compared the ships to know which route to take. Eagle looks nice though! Gonna make my pilgrimage to the Solar system sometime this week

I used to love Elite and Frontier on the Amiga back in the day, but when I played this on the preview thing I was very disappointed.

Maybe I just didn't give it long enough, but I just didn't like it from the start.

The preview thing that lasted an hour didn't blow my mind either, but loads of vids on YouTube made me part with my cash. Takes a while to get used to it all and find your way around the controls and stuff, and then it's awesome. The more I play it the more I get sucked in.
