Links & the Like

Elite Dangerous

Elite Dangerous updated us with a string of “no comment” responses to all the usual questions. Update 12? No comment. Developer diary? No comment. Fixing the experimental upgrade slot on the super hyper drives? No comment. Console account transfers to PC accounts? No comment. Join us later in the show as we break down and analyze all of the non-responsive responses to the burning questions the players have!

Star Citizen

Star Citizen has opened up their feedback loop regarding the 3.17 PTU testing, and there’s not a lot being said. The early evaluation of the refueling system is that it is a solution in search of a problem – maybe they’ll find it in the Pyro system. And everyone’s wondering about 1) server stability and 2) a release date to the live server. Yes, these are good questions. Almost as good as the questions about how much work is shifting to Turbulent.

Community Questions

  • Have you tried the refueling mechanic in the PTU? Is it a fun minigame?
  • Are you waiting for the next big thing to be announced in Elite Dangerous? Or are you just waiting?

    Wonderful episode everyone.

    Non fungible token = nft = digital item that a person does not own exclusively for people with more money than sense.

    Am i the only one worried that the AI’s in the rp are going to “accidently” destroy civilization?
