@ Ant. I am jealous of the keychain.
Ha, you can buy them from the official web site according to https://twitter.com/onestopbadges/status/465852905502019585 (better shots). I am giving my free E3 ones to my Elite fan who made me to see this game and booth! I am not a big fan of the series, but he is! So, he deserves them!

Happy Father's Day guys.
Thanks, but not all of us are fathers like me even though I am an old fart.

You're not a father THAT YOU KNOW OF! Mwahahahahahaha!
Prove it!

No, YOU are my father. Search your feelings. You KNOW it to be true.

Nope, failed. Your proof failed!

Ant partied like it was 1999.
I sure did! I wished I knew I could apply and go to E3 a decade ago. DOH! Does anyone have a time machine? I read that E3 might be moving from L.A. too due to contract renewal and issues?

Nice writeup Ant! Are the pics of you in the cockpit there? Also, who's in the Gang pics? David Braben and ? and ? Sounds like so much fun! Wish I didn't live so far away...
No, that was my E3 buddy playing the game. I should had told him to take photos, but bah. I was way to into the game. Haha. Anyways, hanging out with the team was better! I socialized while my bud was playing (he was into it and he is not a big gamer or into that game!). The lady was Gwen according to https://twitter.com/EliteDangerous/status/476441808755380224 ... I forget if she was from marketing or the other gal (taking picture of the gang; I forgot her name too -- I am bad with names, but hey I remember David!). Also, behind her in that Twitter photo is where Occulus Rift was. I didn't get to try that even though I can't see 3D.

We need t(ele/rans)porters so we can commute quickly.

Reminds me of something someone I knew in the USAF would say if you asked him if he had kids, "Hell! If you throw a stone in any playground in Missouri and you'll probably hit one of my kids."
Hahahaha!

I love how one of the items in the "PC gaming hardware that mattered the most at E3" is an nvidia PC with SLI cards installed, painted in a Titanfall theme. Titanfall. A game that 3 months after launch still doesn't have proper SLI support.
Does SLI ever work? I always seem to read that it is never working or something. I never had more that one video cards in my boxes.

I am really disappointed with this "early-release" phenomenon, I wish people would stop supporting it. We used to complain about buggy unfinished games, now it's a feature.
Yeah. Or for me, I just wait weeks, months, and even years, before I get the games. Haha.

"The PC Gamer E3 Awards - The 10 Best PC Games of E3 2014."
Pff what a bullshit list.
How can these guys get excited about games like Ass Creed or Dragon Age, Far Cry4 and fail to even mention games like Elite Dangerous or Killing Floor 2.
Yet No Man Sky is on their list which as far as I know wasn't even shown for the PC only PS4.
PC Gamer, more like Console Port Gamer
Seriously, Elite Dangerous was fantastic when I visited their meeting room even though I never played its original games! My friend begged me to go visit them. I'm glad I went! My co(worker/lleague) and I agreed it was better than the bigger games and compnaies. Awesome team and game. We got to play it too with no lame time limits. Even free food and drinks! We met the original Elite developer, David, too. http://aqfl.net/node/11029 for the details.

No Linux port planned for Elite Dangerous after chatting with him in person at E3 for my friend (he made me go there, ha!). Mac OS X port will be a few weeks after Windows' release. I was bummed that SC wasn't shown for me to check out in person.

Lol, you guys missed the sarcasm. Game spy was only good when it was quake spy. And, as stated earlier, Kali was better at it with more functionality but less marketing dollars. But Blues launched around then so it's all good.
Kali.net is still alive, but outdated.

http://aqfl.net/node/11029 for the details and my first ever E3 visit. I also checked out this game in its tiny booth, but it was the best of all booths IMO! Smaller companies FTW!
Did you give the Oculus Rift a try with Elite?
I am loving the beta so far.
I have to stop playing it or I'll burn out before the game even comes out
No, I didn't get to since someone was hogging it and was having too much fun with Elite game guys (Dave!!) and game! I am not sure if VR would work since I can't see 3D. I did regret it to just try it for free. I kicked myself.

I already pretty much subscribe for the old Star Trek stuff, more is always good. Although for the life of me I don't know what people see in Deep Space 9.

Yeah I could never get into DS9. I didn't like most of the characters to begin with. And the stories were just kind of meh although there were some good ones.
Ditto!

This does look amazing, but to Cutter's point, what are the missions? How are they structured? How do you get bounties, for example? I've only seen the one vid where the dude tried to trade and lost money since he flew to a star system where the price was much cheaper than he paid for it.

In the old games stations would have a mission board where you had a list of missions and chose which ones you wanted to take. Frontier: First Encounter went a little further and also had newspapers describing events that you could go after. There was also actually a storyline, kind of similar to Privateer's.

I think one of the E:D videos showed the player accepting bounties in real-time, while flying around in space.

That has to be the ugliest ship ever to grace my monitor, WTF were they thinking.

They seem to be keeping the old ships from the series, which were designed for prehistoric computers.
https://twitter.com/EliteDangerous/status/476441808755380224 for the real life model. I met her too since she is part of the team.
