Elite Dangerous released the final Odyssey patch of the PC beta. And, to nobody’s surprise, it didn’t fix everything. Despite having 367 “fixes and improvements” on the list, framerates are still erratic, planetary geometry is still … erratic and mission progress is still… erratic. I think you see the trend, here. As FDev transitions into the familiar “go away and play something else for a couple of months until we fix this” mode, players and streamers are taking them up on the invitation. But for those of us sticking around, there will be more narrative and possibly some cosmetics, And not just in-game cosmetics, I mean actual makeup and fake beards.
Star Citizen welcomed back an ancient and time-honored tradition: the Chris Roberts theory-crafting video! And in a metaphor that will surely escape no one, it was supposed to take five minutes, but ended up being over twenty-five minutes. And Inside Star Citizen takes you inside the health system of Fallout New Vegas and Dungeons and Dragons 5th edition.
Avorion’s 2.0 release is getting closer. How much closer is anyone’s guess, but we know it’s closer because Avorion’s developer Boxelware keeps talking about the new features they’re adding to it. Finally, Descent Underground’s lawsuit is getting closer to the end and Wingman’s lawyer is laying a legal smackdown or two on Little Orbit.
- Are you taking a break from Elite Dangerous, and where are you going if you are?
- Are you going to spring for the escalator on your Star Citizen ships so you don’t get locked out of you ship when your arm gets broken?
