  1. I shelved the Sidewinder. Kept it only because it was my very first ship. Maybe it'll mean something to me one day. Being sentimental and all. LOL. I saw on a Reddit post, that someone recommended the Cobra MKIII so...I bough the Viper MKIII by accident, and was using it for the past week, slowly upgrading it and improving it, all the while thinking to my self that this really isn't all that great of an all around ship. Mostly a fighter. Was just scolling through some of the ships avail and some station somewhere, and noticed that the Cobra seemed better, then realized that it WAS the Cobra, in fact, that was on the Reddit post. DOH!!!!!! My stupid mistake. So, outright sold the Viper, and got the Cobra, and about 800,000cr back. Now I'm upgrading this much better ship. Maxed out the cargo space, put the best powerplant in it that I could, beefed up the shields, and next I'm going to put in the best FSD that I can. Slowly but surely leaning the ropes as I go. Still, it seems as thought I just bounce around from system to system, station to station, moving stuff from here to there, without really getting involved in all the political drama that I read about from different factions, as I get my rewards for moving their crap. How do you align with a certain group you find that you like, and do missions for them, to make some sort of difference in their current situation? I'm making tiny improvements to my rep to numerous groups, and not any in particular. Did any of you experienced guys ever try to influence any political situations in this game? Oh yeah, off topic sort of: what's the purpose of all the downloaded data, and firmware, I find?? Definitely enjoying the vastly increased depth/detail/difficulty this game has over the simplistic No Man's Sky. The sound effects are outstanding!!! Love the crackle of my ships engines as I power down, and all the sounds of flying, even the stress on the ships structure as it twists and bends.
  2. I gave up on the training missions. I think mine are bugged. The first combat training, I waste the first guy, get attacked by the second one, switch to lasers,like I'm told, kill the guy, and all the thing ever shows is to press X to select target. Never ever advanced beyond that. Gave up on the training where you land your ship and deploy the SRV. There is never a waypoint shown, like it states, and it never advances beyond that either. Oh well, There's far more info on Youtube, and just playing the game. Been slowly figuring things out. Bought a fuel scoop, as was recommended here. Currently only have about 120K in cash. Is it even worth it to upgrade the Sidewinder much? I had to remove some scanner to make room for the fuel scoop. Cargo space is extremely limited, as I only have 2 units of space, and I can't seem to install a bigger cargo bay. Guess that kind of makes sense. Buying a hauler is the way to go? Saw some system security ships attacking a wanted guy so, I jumped in and started attacking him to. Was an easy bounty. Currently trying to find a black box by scanning all unusual signals. It's definitely taking a while but, I've scooped up lots of junk from different wrecks. Just have to find somewhere to sell it all. Getting a grip on just the basic flying, which hasn't been hard...even docking, is certainly only the tip of the proverbial iceberg. So much info... Just for shits, I zoomed around the galaxy map. HUGE!!!! Spent most of this past year playing No Mans Sky. Knew that when this game finally was avail I'd never touch that game again. I was right. This is definitely more my speed. No more simplistic gameplay, or Doctor Seuss- like graphics. There are a few things that game does better though. Elite needs planets with atmosphere, the ability to walk around, and maybe some life forms on the odd planet, here/there. I realize that Elite has so much else going on that these items really didn't have time to be implemented but, I hope they are eventually. Great game so far.
  3. Lol. I meant to say training. Stupid iPhone changed it to trading, which I haven't even done yet. Lol Going to have to just keep messing around with the training, and definitely listen to what you guys have to say. Tips very much welcome.
  4. Downloaded/installed the other day. Haven't had much time to play much other than trying to get through the training missions. Certainly is one hell of a learning curve, and I gotta say that the training leaves a bit to be desired. Lots of things not explained at all, and forcing me to figure out on my own. When trying the training mission where where you land on the planet, and deploy the srv, I inadvertently put on the parking brake. Had no clue why I couldn't move. Finally saw that I had it on. When I get it moving, I'm told tat there's been a waypoint dropped for me to go to. Really? Where? Looking everywhere for one. Without finding it, the training never updates to the next step. The combat mission never updates after I kill the enemy with pulse guns. Just says to hit X for target. There are no targets to be found. I like it it so far but, I'm underwhelmed in the trading.
  5. I never got around to playing the original, and it was out of boredom that I watched this video but, after seeing all that, I'm definitely interested. I thought the chimp's language was pretty bad too. Gotta swear a lot because you gotta be edgy.
  6. Finished No Mans Sky, last week. Didn't make it to the center but, I got the platinum for finishing all the accomplishments of the main game. As soon as Elite Dangerous comes out, I'll never touch this game again.
  7. I'm wondering if we'll be able to seamlessly travel to the Banuk territory, or if it'll have some sort of load screen. Would kinda stink if they didn't continue with the no loading screens.
  8. Definitely a purchase for me! Was surprised too. A very so-so conference from Sony, if you ask me. Wasn't all that great. Hopefully, they're working on an update for Ico, and that would make this complete!
  9. Definitely in!
  10. Sure looks beautiful! I don't trust it yet though. Scripted gameplay, and a possible graphic downgrade, that we've seen devs do in the past, have me cautious. But, if this "too good to be true" looking game actually delivers...I might just dive in.
  11. This very well may be THE game that gets me to preorder an X. Loved the first 2. Played them on pc but, my gaming pc is getting pretty long in the tooth. Not going to spend major $$$ to buy a new pc at this time to play this. Me me thinks I'm going to get an X.
  12. Are both of these going to hit the PSVR?
  13. Does nothing for me. Just can't get into yet another Ass Creed. Totally meh.
  14. There is just not enough time to spare between this and Destiny 2. I'm far too far into the Destiny side of the fence, to bail on D2. Game looks nice but, I'm a Desticle.
  15. Strangers Wrath. Can finally replay it!
