Video: It's a good time to get (back) into Elite: Dangerous

Friendship drive charging.

I really like Elite: Dangerous. I've spoken before about my love for its off-hand treatment of players - something I think encourages a very particular kind of role-playing. That said, I must confess I sort of stopped playing for a few months earlier this year.

Happily, with the recent Powerplay update (and a sneak peek at the upcoming Close Quarter Combat update at this year's E3), I recently returned to the cockpit and found that right now is a pretty good time to start (or carry on) bimbling about in space. Come join me in my diamondback scout and I'll tell you all about it.
