Elite: Dangerous

Elite Dangerous just ratcheted up the tension of the Thargoid Space Surprise by 66%! And of course, you ask: “How could they possibly have achieved such a massive increase in narrative excitement in the space of a week?” The answer may surprise you! But, also, it might not! They achieve this startling result by adding TWO new Stargoid anomalies to the THREE that already exist! That means the danger has gone UP! Very exciting. In other news, the bribery CG worked as intended and Tony will tell you exactly how they suckered him into draining away a good chunk of his weekend and a couple of late nights this week.

Star Citizen

Star Citizen Early Access Pre-Alpha Release Candidate Prototype Experimental Test Build 3.18 DID go to Evocati this week! For several hours. For a login test. The number of known issues was large and interesting, but hey, for this part, it literally is an alpha. Oh, yeah, and there was a few things from Citizen Con we should cover. 

Star Trek Resurgence and Cyberpunk 2077

Star Trek Resurgence has delayed their release from late 2022 to April 2023. According to developer Dramatic Labs, they need the extra time to deliver QUOTE a truly immersive Star Trek experience END QUOTE. And speaking of polishing and perfecting, we now have a partial explanation for why Cyberpunk 2077 was so buggy at launch. As usual, it’s the Romanian’s fault. We should have known all along.
