Elite Dangerous

Postby vanpeebles » Fri May 19, 2017 10:03 am

Do we have any Elite Dangerous players here? I've been getting into the xbox one version in a big way lately.

There's a piccy of my well explored Asp.

Yep.

But I stopped playing because ultimately it became very boring. "The Grind", and all that...

The last time I tried it, I was waiting 20 minutes for the station menu to come up.

I do hope your experience is better than that, VP!

Cheers

There can be an element of grind too it. At the moment I've been doing loads of exploring plus passenger trips.

Is it as huge and entertaining as most people say or not ?
So you've got something very important to do right now ?
Why not first waste some precious minutes of your life watching some stupid videos about games and demos on the Archimedes on my YT channel ?

I'm enjoying it, I think it's a worthy take on the original :)

I was a backer on Kickstarter but only started playing it finally about 10 weeks ago. At the moment I'm about 8k Ly out on my way to the Formadine rift and have been exploring for most of my time.

I'm loving it but can see how it could become boring after a while unless you mix it up a lot with PvP, PvE etc. My attempts at doing Multi-crew have been mixed.... I joined an Anaconda on an exploration mission and the game saw fit to place me in the gunners position. Not really great when the ship is fitted out for exploration and there's *no-one* to shoot. You become a sightseer on someone else's ship. That does get a tad boring.

It is a bit of a Grind, but then so was the original... :)

I play for a few weeks and then do a bit of Mass Effect, when I'm not playing something from my MGC of course!
