History of the best computer game ever [May. 3rd, 2004|09:22 pm]
This Guardian magazine article on Elite. I had this on my BBC B way back, I was rubbish but the game was still fun. I also had it on Atari ST, Nicer filled graphics, same game, I was still rubbish.

Even today it's still in my top ten game because of the gameplay.

That damn game!

I did'nt know anyone at all who was good at it.
All that crashing into spacestations!
(I eventually resorted to the cheat mode,and got a docking computer.)

Re: That damn game!

Getting that spin right, so it lined up at the right time, I died all the time docking. Yeah I got a cheat as well, the only way I was ever going to get anywhere.

Have you seen Elite - The New Kind?

Ahhh!, nostalgia,(from a previous life).

Thank's for that,z303.
That's cute.
I'll try and stick it on the computer at work.
(And scrape myself up the inside's of a spacestation again).

I can imagine the inevitable conversation:

"Fighting space pirates,boss."

Yes,fine,and I've done like-wise.

It's strange,last night I was going to trash my LJ
(for various reasons).
Your the first person i've actually spoken to.
Apart from 'Anon' who said:
(an American i presume?)
for a mail order hormone website link.
(Better living through chemistry etc.)

although I don't know you well enough to call you just z yet.
I'll scare you off no doubt(see latest LJ entry)

Re: Hi,z303.

Your pretty much the first person for me aswell, apart from a few random comments.

If you mean this entry, nothing that scary.

Also I just remembered another Elite thing you may like, you can get a T-Shirt from NTK mart.

Nice t-shirt.(want one)

Yes,good old random comment's,I know EXACTLY what you mean.
Re:"nothing that scary"
Friday wasn't the best day for a fashion photo-shoot.(ha!)
I thought it would give you some vague idea of exactly who(or what?)*
you are communicating with.

*As in "what the fuck is that?"

Re: Nice t-shirt.(want one)

You are far too hard on yourself. What you are doing is hard, much braver than me, I still dithering over if I should take the next step or not.
