My Latest Obsession

I’ve recently started playing a new game that has taken me back to the nostalgic days of my misspent youth.  All the way back to 1984, where as a junior in high school, I spent entirely too much time playing a game called Elite on my Commodore 64 computer.  It was a free-roaming space trader/space pirate cockpit sim.  The wonderful folks at Frontier have rebooted that old game with current generation graphics and whole new levels of complexity. It’s new name is Elite Dangerous: Horizons.  The game has a procedurally generated galaxy with millions of stars to visit and an interstellar trading economy to match.  I’ve posted a couple of videos detailing the game and the numerous ways you can die in it.
