Watch: Elite Dangerous Horizons - my (disastrous) first hour

(I am) the fault in our stars.

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.
