Elite: Dangerous

Elite Dangerous Update 17 hasn’t been officially delayed yet, so there’s some good news. But in other news, [begin terrible cockney accent here] Frontier is going money shopping at the stock market in London-town, guv’nor! [end accent] That’s right, after a couple of disappointing financial years, they’re just a little bit poorer than they’d like to be. So they’re going to hang out on the corner with the chimney sweeps and ragamuffins and ask for a tuppence or a farthing or something.

Star Citizen

Star Citizen is trying to add a hotfix to a hotfix to a patch to Early Access Pre-Alpha Release Candidate Prototype Experimental Test Build 3.20, but not having much luck doing so. On the bright side, there is now another type of PTU. And it’s called “Hotfix.” And in response to a French YouTuber who got a little salty on Spectrum, Chris Roberts himself has entered the chat, and has told us things. Lots of things. We will talk about some of them, especially about the database. And finally, Star Citizen has released Early Access Pre-Alpha Release Candidate Prototype Experimental Test Build 3.21 to the PTU, just in time to start testing for the CitizenCon 2023 ship sale. But unfortunately, the patch broke the crash handler.

The Rest

Cyberpunk 2077 Phantom Liberty has been out for a week, and it’s a edge of your seat thrill ride with spills, chills, and tons of illegal pills. Oh, and also there’s Starfield, which we will talk about too. Some more. I guess.

Community Questions

  • Is the Star Citizen graph database problem CryEngine all over again?
  • Give us your take on “New Game Plus.” Was it a great narrative device to encourage replay? Or was it a clumsy way to recycle your character?
