This #Elitedangerous stuff is getting annoying.

I haven't played for a rather long time and the changes to combat is quite dramatic. I'm sure it's not much harder, just different, but the fact remains:

I loose more/about as much money than I earn in my Cobra MkIV. I'm currently running missions for the Empire to get that rep up, and quite frankly because I like missions. Whenever I'm starting to make some money again, I get interdicted and shot down despite having the best possible engine etc, waving around, using chaffs and engine boost to get out of there and back to supercruise. And here I was, enjoying the new missions, thinking they'd be worth doing again.

I'm guessing my old bounty hunting is coming back to haunt me, I'm considered "a good fighter" so I get proper fighters coming after me. I guess I could go get more money doing bounty hunting again, but then my rep would go up even higher even if my skills doesn't go up.

Now, I'm all for harder fighting, it was rubbish before, but when you're doing 8,000 credit missions and get interdicted by a kick-ass fighter it's not very balanced. A random interdiction while cargo hauling, yeah I get that, or while doing "higher level" missions.

I don't dare to take my FAS out right now. Loosing 2+ million at the moment would mean I'd rage quit and I really don't want that.

Yeah, I know you "need to strafe" etc now, but that doesn't really seem to help to turn the target on the bastards, and running apparently doesn't work anymore. Also, being forced to strafe seems like a rather bad decision, since it's hard to get all that in on a lot of controllers. Sure it's good if it helps, but there should be more options. Heck, soon they'll tell us we have to turn off assist to survive. And heck no, I don't want to stare at youtube video guides and read up just to survive interdictions. For serious fighting yeah, sure, but not for friggin' every day life.

Right now I'm thinking I'm just better of unloading my ship, heading out of the bubble to explore and hoping I can unload the data in a month before getting interdicted again. Well, thank Devs for att least providing us with profitable community goals. they're keeping my economy together. Really beginning to regret I didn't do Robigo like so many others.

Mental note: If there is an exploit, use it because you might regret it later if you don't.

yeah, I'm a bit grumpy today, realizing I'll quit playing this game before I try the Clipper.

Somehow I'm sure that includes every single inactive character on previously subscribing accounts. Probably also every single account even if people like me haven't been playing for months.

I have no clue how they're going to save this miserable, yet partially wonderful game and bring people back. The most worrying thing is they don't even seem to care. Not once have they tried to get me back, not a single mail or offer. It seems they're just trying to make as much money doing as little as possible for as long as possible.

Right now waitching paint dry is more fun than that old engine solo game.

Helt rätt, Greenpeace, detta sattyg till företag (ja, det är ett företag om du inte visste det) som sysslar med populistiskt skitsnack och ljuger sig blå för mer uppmärksamhet och pengar, som bryter mot lagar och utsätter folk för livsfara.
Folk borde läsa på om sådana här företag (viktväktarna och PETA ingår i samma grupp omoraliska och oetiska skitsnackare) innan de hoppar i säng med dem.

That moment when my non-hooded Assassin is told repeatedly how that hood is unfashionable, or scary, or something else and he reach up and removes that "invisible" hood.

Repeatedly.

Myeah, not too impressed by Assassin's Creed: Unity.
Not to mention the horrible app that keeps crashing making it impossible to unlock the "extra content" (Basically rubbish weapons and some more money, and a bunch of repetitive, generic "missions"). Not worth it anyway though, since it's just a time consuming grind designed to make you buy "speed-ups", just like Unity itself, that also really wants to force you into Coop play with randoms.

I returned to Assassin's Creed: Unity today (and I have Syndicate waiting for me. Got both very cheap.).

After recently finishing AC3 after AC4 I found that I enjoyed both of those two, especially the everyday life of the colonists in AC3 despite the rubbish controls. So far AC4 has been the best experience I've had with an Ubisoft game.

Unfortunately that does not apply to Unity. It looks great, loads of people on the street, but the american revolution, despite the lack of actual people, was so much more enjoyable. Sure, the controls are better in most ways, but that doesn't help because:

1. The story is rubbish, totally utterly ridiculous. I just want to kill every character in the game. Arno, his "friends", everyone. History, with all the possibilities of the next gen consoles, is almost wiped from the game. It's a sad excuse instead of being the centre of the game.
2. The whole game seems to be about the player buying extra stuff to continue, despite the game being a full price AAA title. Now I don't mind DLC:s (not that I ever buy them unless the whole package is on sale on Steam) but this is not just greedy, it's silly.
3. There's no subtitles for the "background chatter". Ubisoft apparently think we should all learn some french to fully enjoy the game. Now, UBI customer support are rude in every stereotype french way you can think of, but for fracks sake...

From what I've seen of Syndicate I'll probably enjoy that game even less and so far every single game - made by an ethnically diverse group of people - has been located in western societies, despite the assassin's origins in the middle east. I'm happy they're "taking a break" and I'd rather see a remake of the original game within the latest engine.

That said, I'm gonna press on. Not doing much of the sidemissions, collecting crap etc, but gonna try to get through the story. It's a bit bizarre you have to run 2 star missions to move the story ahead enough to level up(??), not that it matters, no mission so far has been a challenge since I don't give a rat's arse about 100% sync. I guess it would be fun to try out the club crap and co-op play, but no way I'm gonna do that with randoms.

I think I'll return to Hitman: Absolution very soon.

Continued my tour of Sol System in Elite Dangerous this afternoon and had the fortune of seeing the capital ship, and the deluxe interior of Galileo Station.

Knowing our solar system, how big some planets are, you do get a sense of scale, when can't even see the planets from Earth orbit. You can barely see them if you touch down on one of their moons, for crying out loud. Basically: The solar system is huuge. The galaxy is hugerer and the universe is hugererererer.

That said, I might start running missions with Sol as my base. It's a nice place to hang around with res sites, plenty of systems around it, loads of federation contacts.

I finally took a trip to Sol System in Elite Dangerous. Ended up on Galileo Station.

It was a hard day, I earned 2.5 million, then got interdicted by one of the big imperials. Pew Pew, died very fast and no way to outrun it, so that was another 2 million down the drain. Basically a totally wasted day running shitloads of missions that didn't raise my federales status at all anyway.

While I do like running the new missions, if the earnings are so bad you have to run about 40 of them to compensate for the loss of a ship it's quite likely you'll loose a ship running those 40 missions, making mission running a waste of time. Right now I'm just unsure what I want to do in the game, or even IF I want to do anything.

So.. Tomorrow might be an Assassin's Creed day, a Hitman day, a Strategy game day... or possibly a book on the balcony day. Whatever it is, it's a freaking wonderful vacation day.

Finally got some time to play Elite Dangerous again and I'm really enjoying the update. Missions are more fun, fighting a bit more challenging and the graphics updates are really nice.

...and there's some surprises: I've nevr seen this type of station before. Not too excited about the engineers though at the moment, but sure, getting some upgrades will be nice in time.

Arnroths krönika – Spelbranschen tål fler kvinnor
www.fz.se

Fem stora spelföretag höll sex timmars presskonferens på E3. De kunde gott ha gett plats för fler än fyra kvinnor på scenen, menar Arnroth.

Snabb service, snabb leverans hem och inkoppling, inget bullshit där. Men liten butik, inte så enormt utbud på lager, lite dyrare(2.000 extra på TV:n mot Hallbäcks, skulle vara "nya modellen", men tillverkas inte längre, smarthub, verkar inte köra Tizen) och de vill gärna bli av med gamla grejer - lurade på mig en halvdan reciever 2009 års modell som "en av våra bästa", nästan 1.000 kr dyrare än andra) och bökig parkering. Installationen dagen efter gick ut på att jag själv fick hjälpa till att bära upp och ner allt - vilken service för pensionärer och andra som går dit just för den hjälpen - och jag fick själv koppla in recievern för han hade aldrig sett sådana sladdar (vanlig högtalarkabel av lite bättre kvalité) och han insisterade på att recievern inte hade mikrofon som skulle kopplas in för autoinställning trots att den låg på bordet. Eftersom ytterligare en sladd behövdes så gick han utan att ha rört recievern. Kopplade alltså i slutändan in varenda kabel själv. En hel massa jag känner har dock rekommenderat butiken för just deras kunnighet och fantastiska service, så uppenbarligen är min erfarenhet inte det generella intrycket de ger - eller så är jag ovanlig på så vis att jag kollar upp grejer, tyvärr i efterhand den här gången - brukar var smartare än så. Får för övrigt bara stereoljud i 7.1-recievern så det blir till att dra fram den igen och böka, precis det jag ville slippa genom att välja den här butiken.
