So, Star Citizen.  I think we've talked about that here.  It's still a ways off.  A LONG ways off.

Elite:Dangerous, on the other hand, is another huge, galaxy spanning space sim with dog fighting and space trading toting Occulus Rift support. Elite:Dangerous is due out sometime this year (though anytime someone says Q4 20XX, I assume it will end up being next year), and there is a playable beta now, although of course access costs $75 (which includes a $50 pre-order).

I'd heard about Elite:Dangerous on gaming news sites, but this article from Kotaku actually has me interested. If you have the time I recommend the read.  If not, here' a link to their site where you can learn more.

This looks pretty freaking awesome. Might not be as in depth or visually impressive as Star Citizen will be but that's not to say it doesn't sound like it has tons of depth. I'm gonna keep an eye on this, especially if it comes out sooner than Star Citizen (which sounds like definite yes). Just wish it didn't have such a lame name. Elite: Dangerous? Could you sound any more generic?

This game is officially too cool for school.  Seriously I don't know how else to describe the content of this video than synonyms for "cool as cool can get."

Oof, I'm having a hard time keeping track of what's going on in space with half the screen covered in what is essentially UI.

Watched video. Do want game now. Gah, if only there wasn't a stupid beta fee. 

Additionally I really need to update my computer... requirements don't look steep but I should get above min requirements.

Elite: Dangerous will have a December 16th release date.

There's a release for the end of the year I'm anticipating again.

End of year? Shit that's... next month! Surprising it'd hit final release this soon. Makes me happy though! I'll definitely be picking the game up then.

Definitely need to update the computer though at this point.

Apparently Elite:Dangerous was going to have an offline mode, and it has officially been canned. Sounds like some kickstarter backers are pissed off about it since the feature was promised, and probably a reason they backed the game.  I honestly didn't even know it was going to be a feature - kinda sad to see it go but I was planning on playing the game online anyway.

I had heard about this and kinda feel similarly about it. I totally understand annoyance with it but I didn't even know it was gonna be a thing and was gonna play it online anyways.

Found this cool video showing off one player's day at bounty hunting.

Edit update: Second video of the player and another player teaming up for some Piracy.  Another fun watch with some combat and a sense of how multiplayer may work.
