Sometimes Elite Dangerous surprises you in unexpected ways
I’ve been playing Elite Dangerous a lot lately and there’s really no better way to experience the game than with a HOTAS setup and a VR HMD. There’s been many hours I’ve sat in my poor man’s flight chair with the Saitek X52 Pro attached to the armrests while wearing my HTC Vive. Flying around in space and being immersed in the environment is something truly special and it makes Elite one of the best VR games out there.
So having made hundreds of trips to and from space stations, something happened last night that I’ve never experienced before and seeing it in VR really made it pretty awesome. I wouldn’t be on the receiving end of it, but hey, it was pretty damn cool to see. Check it out.
