  • A Recognizable Threat – Creating the Thargoid Menace

    Back at the beginning of 2017, the first evidence of an alien race was discovered as an unsuspecting commander was dragged out of Witch Space by the aliens. The Thargoids have since evolved from an won't series of distractions into the central narrative force in Elite Dangerous.

  • Everything Coming to Commanders in 2018

    The impending threat of alien invasion, or maybe just utter annihilation, looms heavy on the horizon for players of Elite Dangerous. The Thargoids came back to the fore this year and during the keynote speech at Frontier Expo 2017, we found out that this is just the start of the action.

  • Why VR Matters to Me

    Gareth Harmer, aside from being a fantastic dresser, writer for MMORPG.com, and all around proper British gentleman, is also a prolific blogger. Over on his personal blog, Mana Obscura, he penned an interesting take on Virtual Reality and why it clicks with him. We've republished that blog here for you today, in the wake of all this week's VR news from GDC.

  • PAX South - Maybe Elite's Not So Dangerous After All

    Elite: Dangerous is a space sim sandbox, but after my interview at PAX South, I'm starting to think it might not be as rough on new players as I first thought.

  • Steam and the Rise of F2P RPGs

    Over the last year, Steam has begun recommending free to play RPGs to our intrepid RPG columnist. He decided to take them on and investigate exactly whether these “free to play” RPGs were worth your time. Click through to see what he found! Plus Marvel Heroes gets a new endgame mode, Elite: Dangerous gets planetary exploration, Diablo 3 takes on a new form of narrative, and more!

  • A Skeptic's Return to Destiny

    The original Destiny was a letdown. Our author played it through and, like so many others, left just after finishing the campaign, equally disappointed and aggravated at the game that should have been. With all the buzz surrounding The Taken King, he’s returned to see if it lives up to the hype. Is one expansion enough to overcome a year’s worth of mistakes?

  • PAX South 2015 - Cruising Through With The Oculus Rift

    Conventions are all about trying new things, and I did just that at PAX South, sampling for the first time two of the hottest new pieces of tech – software and hardware – that gamers are drooling over: Elite: Dangerous and the Oculus Rift.

  • Review in Progress #3 - Frame Shift

    It’s a big galaxy. 400 billion stars big. There’s room enough to make your fortunes, room enough to find your fights and room enough to see things most people won’t pass by if you really work at it. In a galaxy like that, what you make of it is up to you. You… and others. It might be the little action of a few players bringing in the goods or it might be the larger actions of empires.

  • Review in Progress #2 - Space. It's Big.

    Last time in this review in parts, I realised that I needed a flight stick. Fortunately I happened to have one buried in the house, left behind by my brother. Maybe I'll invest in something a little more fancy, but it did the job. It finally made me feel like a pilot, like I was competent. I went from viewing each docking with a mix of fear and dread to hotdogging them. From fitfully trying to slam my ship onto the pad and pray to gliding in on pretty fine vectors if I do say so myself.

  • The Entire Galaxy, Yours For The Taking

    Thirty years ago, programmer David Braben created the ground-breaking, but controversial space trading game, Elite, a game that sparked many a debate among computer enthusiasts, and served as a precursor to games like Wing Commander: Privateer and EVE Online. Next Tuesday, Braben's releasing Elite: Dangerous, an ambitious sequel that could very well be the next ground-breaker/debate-maker, and I was fortunate enough last week, to get an early look at it.

  • E3 Preview - Every Star in the Universe

    At E3 last week, we had the opportunity to take Elite for a test spin. Not only that, but we were given some time with, wait for it… the Oculus Rift version! Garrett and Bill were generous enough to let me take it for a spin since I had never tried the Oculus Rift prior to this, and there is only one word to describe the experience: MIND-BLOWING!

  • The Glorious Return to Frontier

    Garrett Fuller and Bill Murphy sat down with David Braben of Frontier fame to talk all about Elite's progress through alpha, the road to beta, and even got some hands-on with flight sticks and the Oculus Rift to take out some AI opponents.

  • Review in Progress #1 - Pre-Flight Check

    Fast forward the intervening 21 years to last week. Elite: Dangerous officially launched. Is there a credit bug? I doubt it. Is there the wormhole bug? I have no idea yet.... but I hope so. Where my first exposure to Elite was wide eyed wonder and my first experiences with it amounted to a lack of foresight, I decided I was going to take this easy. Work my way into the experience. Learn. Do it right.
