I really like Elite: Dangerous, even if it does go out of its way to make you feel unimportant.

With the beta for the Horizons expansion now live, I fired up my Diamondback Explorer to check out planetary landings for myself.

It went - and this is nobody's fault but mine - horribly. Have a look at the video below for a laundry list of things you probably shouldn't do while playing Horizons for yourself.

Johnny is one quarter of the Eurogamer video team - specifically the part that looks like it comes from East London. He loves pen and paper role playing games, his dog Watson, and pretty much any video game with a bit of grimdark to it. You are almost certainly pronouncing his surname incorrectly.
