I played Eve for years. I can't imagine Elite has a worse learning curve. Still, thanks for the warning. I'm not sure I'm ready to put that kind of energy into a new game right now. Maybe I'll pick it up at the Christmas Steam sale.
Is Elite: Dangerous any good in solo mode? I have zero desire to play another MMOG right now.
The big warning however is that Elite Dangerous has a massive learning curve. At first you struggle to even fly your ship or land it. And you do a lot of googling and reading wikis.
That's true, but it should be noted that if you have any experience with flight sims and you own a joystick you shouldn't have any real trouble. It's easier than any WWII aviation sim I've ever picked up, for instance.
That said, I own it and haven't played in a while. It is a colossal time sink, and you don't really build anything in it either.
NMS is much improved from before. For one thing, I can transfer stuff from my current ship directly to a crashed ship. You can also summon your ship to your location. There is more gameplay; I restarted and there is at least more gameplay in the early parts.
As usual, I will say that I didn't read anything about this game before I bought it.
Why am I homeless? Why do all you motherfuckers need homes is the real question. They called it The Prayer, its answer was law Mommy come back 'cause the water's all gone
