Elite: Dangerous

Elite Dangerous is continuing on with the Stargoid story line by … continuing on with it. This week, there’s a free firmware update to your Full Spectrum Scanner that lets you lock on to the Stargoid signal as it passes through a system. So, if your ship was fast enough, you could instance with it. Unfortunately, your ship isn’t fast enough, so you can’t. Maybe in Update 14. Also, last week’s CG was not a resounding success. But the bribery worked on ONE of us here. You get four guesses.

Star Citizen

Star Citizen conducted yet ANOTHER another Evocati test of Early Access Pre-Alpha Release Candidate Prototype Experimental Test Build 3.18. This time they left it on overnight. Hopefully it didn’t turn out like leaving on the gas stove overnight. Also, SURPRISE, there’s a new ship coming with the IAE next week! It’s the RSI Anaconda Star Destroyer, and it won’t be cheap. Also also, there was more “no news is good news” on the R-Word Roundup, as things that were already announced are announced again. Also finally, Tony has something nice to say about one thing he saw on a Spectrum AMA. ONE THING ONLY.

Third Wheel

Tony’s really sorry guys. See, he had downloaded the demo of Flight of Nova, which is a space piloting game in early access on Steam. And he was GONNA play it, he swears, until LENNON messaged him about a law thing… which is kinda also in early access on Steam. The upside is that you may have been injured by Valve, Inc’s anti-competitive monopoly power and may be entitled to triple compensation. It all starts with one easy phone call to 1-800-STEAM-IT. Operators are standing by.

    Great show everyone, thanks

    That outro was spectacular.

    For the record, steam provides more than just a marketplace for developers. They also spin up and host servers for games (such as terraria, which has millions of sales) to allow for easier multiplayer, which in turn draws in more sales.
