Combat, Community Goals and Epic Exploration?

I’ve started to scale back my actual play of Elite, but not because I’m not still enjoying the game, but because I’m waiting for Horizons to be released. Once Horizons is released I’ll be hitting it again big time. I’ve been doing new and different things in Elite up until …

I got my gaming PC ten months ago. It didn’t get off to a good start, as the PC only arrived in a working state on the third attempt. In the previous two attempts the big heat synch had come off and bashed around the insides of the case. The …

A Year With The PS4

I purchased my PS4 a year ago this month, on 9th September 2014 to be exact. The PS4 has been on the shelves for almost a year and I’d decided not to get involved. It’s often ridiculously stupid to buy into a new console in the first year, and slightly …
