Next, we’ll get the news from the deep black with Spencer McDunn on Galactic Public Radio. Then Commander KineticImpulser gives you tips for keeping those shield up in Nuggets for Nuggets.

Were you affected by the Insurance bug or the Guardian tech bug this week? Would you rather features rolled out more slowly and more thoroughly tested? Or out quickly with risk of breakage?

    You said BMW doesn’t make full size trucks? Mercedes do, Ford make tiny cars to super cars to, Mazda make Kei cars to Lorries. I don’t think Chris ment specifically BMW, if he did, they need someone to go back and redesign them, they clearly aren’t BMW.

    On top of that I’m sure somewhere, there is a MISC “600i” that probably didn’t make the cut or its the freelancer, Chris is sitting more in the role of General Motors where they make a car and then decide who gets to stick there badge on the model.

    I never got the apples and oranges thing, they are very comparable. Both can come in red, both have skins, both are fruit.

    Also 16inch soggy pizza with raw anchovies.. yum, just missing frozen pineapple and you’ve just described my sort of pizza.

    I actually like the new crime system in Elite, the bounties and fines are an awesome compared to the last system however I believe the damage amount needs to be adjusted, I’ve fired a missile and got an instant bounty however I’ve pulse lasered a few cops and never even been fined. The issue seems to be high damage low projectile weapons and in the case of many commanders in open, poor trigger discipline and lack of spatial awareness.

    Good show as always. ⭐ for you

      You are a very sick person. Thin and crispy on the crust, no anchovies, with mushrooms and sausage, pineapple should never be frozen.

    Meh, mediocre show boys, mission accomplished. I would like to hear a few more minutes of the RP game. I enjoy hearing the troops dice roll themselves out of their constant predicaments. Kudos to Tony for DM-ing the adventures and coming up with the weekly content.
