    Giant Bomb Fan Club

    I am not a fan of Brad, but felt for him after his interview on 1099 he sounds defeated and like he knows he could never get a job elsewhere. https://soundcloud.com/the1099/episode-104-brad-shoemaker-on-giant-bomb-hosting-the-bombcast-and-games-criticism

    Elite Dangerous - Exploration is now fun... maybe

    If you are wanting a bit of scratch I strongly advise a bit of core mining. it is super fun for a bit and very lucrative if you can pull a python together. I use https://eddb.io/body to find nearby pristine ice rings and then use the new planet scanner thing to bomb the rings and look for "void opel" deposits. Fly around and find bright asteroids of the right shape, probe them to find out if they have the right sort of crack to split them open. Grab the 15 or so deposits, and scrape the others off the wall with the abrasion blasters then repeat. Once you have a full hold, then use https://inara.cz/galaxy-commodity/10250/ to find a place that will buy them at a good profit near where I am. The right 'roids are pretty rare but it is pretty zooming thru the ice rings and it brings in mucho cash mucho fast!

    Things have changed with scanning and I am not sure what is correct now... however to scan the nav beacon you just fly up to it and target it (confusion here is that it is possible to target the REGION that is nav beacon, and the nav beacon itself, you have to be sure you target the beacon itself!) Then just wait as a little spinner in the bottom left spins. Once that is done you have scanned the beacon. If you want to scan planets, then there is a new thing called the FSS that has a little minigame to get details on the planets. I don't have a good guide to this... and getting it all the keys bound is a bit of a faff (there is a hud mode and stuff... also some of it is a keybind and some a bind of a scanner in the right hand menus... ) http://elite-dangerous.wikia.com/wiki/Full_Spectrum_System_Scanner All that is now built into each ship. If you want to get maximal cash money (and the 'mapped' designation if you are first to do it) you need to buy a surface scanner and that is another whole new thing. https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1590599103 It is all good but it is a LOT of new stuff to remember!

    Steam Secret Santa 2018

    Sorry for the delay Santa, but I have got on a real computer so I can see what my prodigious packages contain! Super Steampunk Pinball 2D : this may actually run on this computer! Sonic Mania Sonic Mania - Encore DLC Panty Party: installing right now! VR Regatta - The Sailing Game : wishlist sailing game (I love to sail but cannot afford a boat!) Dead Cells: wish list, gotten good reviews X Rebirth VR Edition: been playing a bit of X4 lately, but really miss the VR of Elite, looking forward to trying this! The Witness: I have heard good things... lets see if my brain box is up to it! DOOM VFR: loved DOOM 2016 so glad to get back into it, and what better on the 25th anniversary of the original doom! RIP AND TEAR! Undertale: an antidote to DOOM games? Finding Paradise Hexcells Complete Pack: more puzzles! I have seen people here rate it. Celeste: strawberries are my favorite fruit so should be all good Stellaris: watched a few Waypoint streams and this looked super interesting. Thanks again Santa just amazing generosity! Also of course thanks to JPR for doing the grunt work and MarkN and APM for additional fun!

    I agree that it is change in the not interesting part of the game, and does not lead to new types of game play. The fact that scanning now reveals ground based points of interest is good but that could have been done differently. You are correct that there is then nothing to DO with the data! all the first found stuff gets wiped out quickly and is just there for the totally obsessed. The game holds such promise but it seems it cannot quite get there. If it was smushed into X4 and be a real single player game I would be happy bunny!
