Personally I think E:D is highly overrated and with the stunt they pulled with the pricing on their "expansion" they should get all the heat atm. I paid way too much for a shell of a game with the original E:D and now they ask me to pay the exact same amount again for adding just a tad more depth to a game that was as shallow as a Tunisian mudpuddle to begin with.
My thoughts exactly. So disappointed in E:D.
To be honest anyone who backed elite dangerous should have known that he didn't get anywhere near enough money to make the thing and he was dragging you along if you had any clue how much it costs to make a modern videogame.
To be honest anyone complaining about Elite Dangerous was expecting a totally different game than promised. They pitched a new version of Elite, they delivered 100% minus the offline component.
Just because they don't like it because they thought it would be something different doesn't mean ED/Frontier are to blame. It's like buying Half Life expecting a Super Mario experience then saying Valve dropped the ball because you were hoping for Mario.
ED is just this decades remake of the original, not the BDSSE.
I agree. Back then, it was fresh because no other game was out that produced the graphics, gameplay, and expansiveness. I knew what I was getting into when I backed the Premium Beta package and I'm ok with that. Wasn't thrilled with the "always online" component but my Steam backlog of games is so backed up right now, coupled with kids to take care of that I'm fine if my Internet connection goes out for some time.
