"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.

28. Elite Dangerous... Jun 16, 2014, 01:11 Ant
 
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Kali.net is still alive, but outdated.

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.

Will Linux Ever Be Regarded as an Equal to Windows and Consoles at E3?
No.

It may be once Windows 9 gets here; and Windows 7 stops getting support. I have faith in Microsoft to screw things up even more.

I don't follow.
If Windows continue to suck like 8.x and 7 is unsupported, then people will leave Windows.

It looks like I will finally go to my very first one. Although, I am old and not into gaming much as I used to. Hopefully, E3 will be an interesting experience.

I'm sorry Doom is!
