    Very cool, shame about the title though..

    This would be amazing on an Oculus Rift

    yeah, I'm hoping it's just a working title. ( otherwise I might just have to make a Downfall Parody about it )

    Well the thing looks nice; if it has dogfight gameplay at least remotely as good as the Freespace series had then it'd be interesting.
    (I gotta agree the title is really awful)

    Nope, just saying I did try a bunch of space sims but none managed to get close to how good the dogfighting was in Freespace.
    And about the name..it's not necessarily the 'Elite' part, but really..Dangerous?! :D

    The dangerous part is a throw back to the old games rating system, harmless > mostly harmless > average > above average > competent > dangerous > deadly > elite

    TBH Elite influenced pretty much every space combat sim including freespace no doubt

    I played Elite obsessively on my BBC Micro and Acorn Electron....

    Cassette loader and 5 1/4 inch floppy disks ftw!
    ;-)

    ...and then Frontier: Elite II on the Amiga

    I still think the name Elite: Dangerous is bad... even though Danger is my middle name :raises eyebrow:
