I Am A Destiny Legend!

I’ve always found Destiny marketing strange. Whatever I think doesn’t really matter, as it obviously works. I have my own view on how it’s about trust and getting the core right, despite numerous issues with the overall game in Year One, but they put out some unique and quirky stuff. …

I Have An Anaconda *Drops Joystick*

I was happily trading in my Python, a ship I really liked, and then decided to gun for an Anaconda. I wasn’t going to, in a way I didn’t see the point in having one other than to say I’d got there, but I watched a few videos and decided: …

Faster, Better Armed And Varied

I got to 75M credits and I’ve given up. The idea of trading in a Type-7 so I could get a Type-9 has come to its natural end. The grind is just too much. It’s taken a while to get to this point and the thought that I probably needed …

I Have A Bigger Boat!

When I got back from my exploration expedition I got back into the trading. A break is good. I set my sights on the next vessel. It didn’t take that long to get to 23m which is what I calculated I needed to buy my next ship. In truth it’s …

The Enemy Has Been Engaged

I’ve purchased my fourth ship. After a bit of deliberation of what to buy next I decided to dabble in some combat, especially if I can do it in a wing with my brother and nephew. I had a look at the various combat ships, discounted the expensive ones for …

The Cobra Goes Primary

There is one good thing about the Hauler, which I’d recommend to anyone, as I think it’s a great ship, is it is ridiculously cheap to outfit. It would seem you can have a fully outfitted Hauler for about 200K. Since any ship beyond that is looking at a price …

Highway To The Danger…Zone!

I have a long history of playing flight simulators, even going back to when it was probably a bit of a stretch calling them such. I remember playing a flight simulator on my first computer, the Vic 20, and that was a triumph of imagination., then there was F-19 Stealth …

Second Star On The Right

I did it. I took the plunge. I have purchased Elite: Dangerous. I got a fancy HOTAS joystick, well, not so fancy, as in didn’t cost hundreds of pounds, and this persuaded me to use the rest of some money that came my way on my birthday to get Elite. …
