Elite Dangerous is fucking brilliant!

They released the one player game to Standard Beta backers yesterday. I had a feeling that they might do that at some point before the standard beta started :D

I've been playing on it and it's fucking ace what I've seen so far. The flight model's much better than Star Shitizen and it just feels like a decent space sim. Right now, I'm trying to sort out a decent controller for it and seeing if I customise the controls for a gamepad.

Get in on the Standard Beta, it starts at the end of the month!

might give it a go, was too young for the original, knew a bloke who became Elite though, - apparently that was quite difficult to do?

Everyone "knew a bloke who became Elite". My mate Terry also reckons in 1996 he knocked Chuck Norris out in the Dixons in town. And when he was 7 Darth Vader came to stay at his house, which is why he wasn't allowed out at the weekend but we weren't allowed in because Darth Vader would force choke us to death. Although later I heard it was because his mum caught him in her knicker drawer.

Anyway, I don't have a machine which could hope to run this at the moment. Unless they turn out an Android one. With moderate tech requirements. :(

I don't recall you saying anything of the sort. If I remember rightly your advice was:

SQUIRREL ERROR wrote:Put all your money into Star Citizen. Trust me, you can't go far wrong. Everyone else is throwing money at it and they can't be wrong, can they? I mean, It's not as if they're brainwashed or anything. Only a cunt would back Elite Dangerous.

No bullshit here. This is actually me posting from over a year ago, honest. If you don't believe me, then why would I still have a signed photo of Rolf Harris?
