Here’s what I played last week.

  • Elite Dangerous Horizons (PC)


I have a problem…

The problem is that I don’t have enough time for Elite Dangerous…

Bought Voice Attack over the weekend. I need to do a write up about it.

What are you playing?!

Mission Log 24

Greetings, Starfighter!

The last couple of weeks have been pretty slow progress for me as far as getting the Asp upgraded to be the Apex Predator it can be. Between work and being sick, I haven’t gotten a lot of time in the black. But last night afforded me the opportunity to make some cash. I’m just north of 5.6 million again and looking to upgrade my either thrusters or shields first.

Hello! It’s been a while! Last week was spent trying to fight off a jerk head cold that’s still hanging around in the form of a cough. But I’m feeling better. Between that and work, I didn’t much feel like writing up posts. I still played a teensy bit, though. So here’s what I’ve played over the past 2 weeks:

  • Elite Dangerous: Horizons (PC)
  • Space Engineers (PC)

I ran into an issue with my PC last week and lost a lot of stuff on my storage drive. I was a super weird thing…I was removing apps that I haven’t used in a while and noticed a strange cmd window pop up and a bunch of open applications stopped responding. After a reboot, most of the stuff in my Program Files folder where most of my none OS related things are installed was just…empty.

That includes game saves. I soon then learned that Norton’s Backup and Recovery tool is completely worthless.

So my entire Steam library was wiped out. I went ahead and re-downloaded Elite and Space Engineers. Obvi.

Everything I had built in Space Engineers was lost. Luckily all the Elite stuff (including your joystick mappings THANK GOD) are saved on their servers.

So that’s me. Oh…and Daredevil season 2 is really wanting to eat up a lot of my free time.

What are you playing?

Here’s what I played last week:

  • Elite Dangerous: Horizons (PC)
  • Dungeons and Dragons 5th Edition (Tabletop)

Short list this week…and even shorter play times! But that’s okay because building computers is fun!

Most of my free time over the last week as been building a media server to run Plex. When that was done, the rest of my free time and 99% of my CPU power was spent ripping seasons of Parks and Rec that we have on DVD.

The reason for the server is two fold:

  1. Most of what we’re putting on there is available through Netflix or Hulu which eats up our data cap but we have it on DVD too…which leads to reason 2
  2. We’re too lazy to swap discs out so we would stream and eat up our data cap

Now that there’s a good bit on content on the server, I won’t shotgun ripping like I did this weekend. I think The West Wing is a good “next choice” for ripping. But it’ll probably be the Simpsons seasons we have.

Have you built something like this? Share your build and what you did with it!

No Man’s Sky

Just a quick post that No Man’s Sky has a release date and pre-orders are available!

What’s No Man’s Sky? Well…here’s a list of Polygon articles that will tell you. Click that link and you’ll see why it’s in my wheelhouse pretty quick…


I pre-ordered my copy through Amazon for PS4 (they have a discount on most pre-order stuff). If PC is more your jam, Steam’s store has it up for pre-order too.

Nerdist has a pretty slick video on some things I hadn’t heard before. I was disappointed to hear that multiplayer isn’t really a thing (part of the reason I’m going the console route). But I’m still super excited about flying through space and discovering new planets and species. I’m going to name them all after my friends.

Are you getting this game? ARE YOU AS EXCITED AS I AM?!
