Hey look at that, I forgot to move this from draft to scheduled!

Here’s what I played last week:

  • Elite: Dangerous
  • Empyrion: Galactic Survival

Short list this week! My Elite playing has ramped up a good bit to help other folks get things like Engineers and Guardian components unlocked. Empyrion is proving to be a really fun combination of a bunch of different things that I like. The best comparison I can come up with is Space Engineers, though I’m not sure how deep the crafting/programming is yet. I’ll try to get a post with some photos written up so you can see what it’s like.

I haven’t played much of Star Wars Squadrons. I’ve had trouble adapting to the flight model using a HOTAS and to be honest, I wanted to play it with friends but no one seems to be into it for various reasons. So we’ll see what comes of it. I’m hoping for some polishing patches to keep rolling in.

Here’s what I’ve been playing!

  • Elite Dangerous
  • No Man’s Sky
  • Star Wars: Squadrons

Squadrons may need to wait till the first patch. It’s fun enough but I feel like it’s hitting my GPU pretty hard. Harder than it should be. I dunno. is a factory game that scares me. I don’t think I’m smart enough to play it.

No Man’s Log 1

I’ve started playing No Man’s Sky again and it’s feeling pretty good. This has been on my back burner for a long while now but when I noticed some friends playing it, I thought, hey. I’ll jump in too.

I played this a lot at launch on PS4 and walked away, but not because I didn’t like the game. I just drifted to something else. I think I burned myself out on it too quick. But that was way back before they started releasing the content that started turning the game into what they actually wanted to have at launch.

  • Elite Dangerous
  • Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020
  • Jedi: Fallen Order

Mandalorian Season 2 is coming and I’ve seen some folks draw some lines from Fallen Order to the trailer. I’ve wanted to play it for a while and with more Star Wars on the horizon, I figure, why not more Star Wars! What’s more, I was able to pick it up for pretty cheap from Epic.

Like 2 seconds into the game and I love it

Mission Log 73

We’re Back. A spaceship story.

It was a long trip but we’ve finally made it back to the bubble. The greatest thing I’ve learned from this whole thing is that if you’re heading out to explore by yourself, don’t bother with taking a Fleet Carrier. The hassle just doesn’t feel worth the benefits. It’s probably going to be a while before I do something like that again. Someday I want to visit Beagle Point but I’m in no rush. It was a really great trip, though.

Here’s what I played last week!

  • Elite Dangerous
  • Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020
  • Mad Max

Back in the day I was subscribed to Humble’s Monthly Bundle. This was before they had you choose from a list of games and just gave you a pile of games every month. So I’ve got a bunch of unclaimed steam keys. I was looking through them to offer some to my wife and noticed I had Mad Max in there. I rented it from Red Box when it came out back in 2015 and liked it. So I redeemed it and I’m playing it off an on. For its age, it’s still a pretty slick looking game.

Here’s everything I played last week!

  • GTA Online
  • Eve Echoes
  • Dead by Daylight

Yeah that GTA RP thing fell out for me. I probably didn’t give it a fair shake. Maybe some other time.

Eve Echoes is pretty cool. I recently picked up a second hand iPad and it runs pretty well on it. Currently I’m working on figuring out how to make money in mining.

I’ve owned Dead by Daylight for a while now and I’ve been too afraid to play it. I’m a wuss when it comes to horror stuff. I can watch it fine. I watch d20monkey play it on twitch all the time… But some other friends have picked it up so I started playing as the killer alone. I’ve got a couple of games in as both killer and survivor, playing with friends. I’m liking it!

I missed last week’s playlist. I’m sorry about that. I also have more than enough content for a mission log update but, lazy. I’ll try to get one out this week!

Here’s what I played last week:

  • Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020
  • Elite Dangerous
  • Fall Guys
  • Eve Echoes

I’ve joined a GTA V RP server. I’ve only got a couple of hours into it but I’m not sure I’ll stick with it. It’s cool and all but dropping in, not knowing anyone, not really sure what to do/what I can do, is a little jarring. I’ll give it more time, for sure…it’s just not exactly what I expected…could be the server I’m on. I don’t know.

Mission Log 72

We’re in Colonia! AND WE’RE LEAVING AGAIN!

And we’re gonna be stuck here for little bit. I just don’t have enough Tritium to get home and no one here is selling. So I’ve parked Colombia next to an ice ringed planet with a Tritium hot spot. I was never filling up Conveyor so I’ve switched Javelin from exploration to mining. I’m able to get a little over 100 tons a run in Javelin but at least I’m filling the hold and it’s usually pretty quick. The problem with Conveyor is probably my hardpoint configuration. I’m only running one SSD so I was running out of missiles before I even came close to being a quarter full. I can synth more, but then I’ll have to restock mats for that and that means pulling myself off mining…which slows the return.

So that’s actually what we’re doing now. This is what we’ve done.
