Welcome to Geekenstein’s In The Lab, the show where we check out the upcoming, latest, and just interesting games to see if they’re worth your time and money. Star Citizen may be raking in the dough, but it’s not the only entry in the space sim market. The Elite franchise returns with Elite: Dangerous, but can David progress though the tutorial in this first look, or will he crash and burn, only to return more determined to fly among the stars.
Elite: Dangerous is the latest entry in the Elite franchise, which had been dormant for nine years. Sure, Frontier Developments may have been distracted with Roller Coaster Tycoon and Kinectimals, but they’re back to the one of the defining space franchises and funding it through the fans. Can you survive in the Elite universe?
