Colonia: Same as it Ever Was

Paramemetic 2016-12-09

Elite: Dangerous, Frontier Developments’ arcade spaceflight and galactic trucking simulator, had a promising launch in a simulated galaxy that promised players a persistent, multiplayer experience, where you could play how you want and be who you want – in space.

Elite Dangerous: A Study in Differences

FroggyStorm 2016-12-01

I’ve been playing Elite for nearly two years, and I run the logistics and human resources for one of the largest organizations in the game: the Diamond Frogs. I think Elite remains the best arcade space flight simulator on the market, and I think it will continue to be that for the foreseeable future. In…

Author’s note Part of the human condition is the need to explore. At a fundamental level our primitive brain’s reproductive success is based on sampling the world around us and making prognostications and observations that improve our chances to whelp more humans into the world. To the majority of people this drive to see beyond…
