In this week’s flight deck we bring you all the headlines from simulated space including the latest news from: Elite Dangerous, Star Citizen and X4. Next, we’ll get the news from the deep black with Spencer McDunn on Galactic Public Radio. After that we continue our audio adventure, Guard Frequency Origins, where the team wished they had some floor wax…. and/or grenades. Both, probably.

Finally, we open up the feedback loop and let you join in on the fun.

Lace up your booties, campers, it’s time to head out to the Flight Deck.

Community Question

What do you think about the gated grind features in the Elite update? Should Tony give CIG props for finally doing an homage without ripping off anyone?

We got patches!

    That mini game voice has to be in every game from now on.

    loved the episode, but then again creative sparks should not be interfered with, you know who i mean.

    The gate for access is fine, and yesTony should.

    Should Tony stop criticizing CIG because they did an homage without ripping anyone off?


    Bobo say hip, hop, the hippie, the hippie
    To the hip-hip hop-no Tony can’t, no he can’t stop
    ’cause he’s here for us backers, us OG backers, he’s our scrumpdillyicious
    Our impartial-icious, our objective oversight beat

    Me I’m Bobo Clown of OG backertown, and I’m rappin’ atcha from these streets, and
    Me, the Truth and our friend Hammer, we gonna keep-it commin’ to you straight and sweet, ’cause
    Y’all need to hear what we got to say, and I assure you that it’s not in jest
    CIG the time is now to get done the things you used to said

    ’cause now you-say, Venture, no Vulture, and we-say ‘what can we fly today?’
    You say pledge another theory, craft it up pretty, and maybe get to play it some day
    Everybody-shout, co-op flip flop, Squadron 42
    And if you don’t like it, take a look at you pilot, ’cause this maybe ain’t the game for you

    PS – Shout out to three brave Citizens attempting to facilitate dialogue between the trenches. Please send them some love, and maybe some bandages. They are Citizen Situation

    Guys, I’m happy to be one of the 6 people that download your podcast.

    Elite? don’t know – don’t care – don’t play. I supposed having gated areas within a game could prevent low level players from getting BONED. Making it available after a community grind is the same as using a post-dated check. It’s a promissory note for future content. Who’s to say when “enough” grinding has been accomplished?

    Tony, be true to yourself and don’t cave to peer pressure. *F* CIG (or not)! It’s funny how a single “Oh Shit” wipes out a lifetime of “Ataboy”s.
    (Geoff may need to help the youngin’s out on that one)

    The shiv’s cream joke was alien to me and Kinshadow was milking it. So glad Tony remained cultured.
