I installed yesterday but couldn't find the reason I was not able to move. Some say it is simply key bindings missing so today I will try again.

I'm sure there will always be people disliking any content a game might offer. In Elite, you can choose which content to really embrace and which to completely ignore. To the point that there are aliens trying to rip the bubble apart - and you can completely ignore the havoc and trade, mine and ferry people elsewhere as if nothing has happened.

Some love this design as it means they can do whatever they want but to me it just means that the galaxy feels far less alive, it all lacks action/reaction, consequences. But I digress...

I'm glad Elite still has new things to offer and I have no doubt I'll love some and hate others. But I'm not as demanding as the author of the article as far as faces go. A poly less or mediocre texture would never destroy the experience for me if the gameplay associated with it is good.

BTW, these faces are GORGEOUS compared to SLF pilots' faces. Those are 99% hideous, people were afraid the NPCs in Odyssey will have same level of uglyness, which has not happened. :D

The third stage of the Odyssey Alpha continues to expand the playable portion of the galaxy to 50 light years and moves focus towards the exploration of undiscovered planets and the Exobiology career path. Additionally, Commanders will finally experience the coveted "First Footfall" moments within the Alpha, when they set foot on a previously uncharted planet for the first time.

Now live.

Agree with the article. IMO space legs will rarely be used except for the photo sessions. Sure getting out will be fun for a few times, then it will be a waste of time on the journey. I tried to get into alpha but the sheer numner of buttons to be mapped stopped me from doing it in-depth.

As far as shooter concept goes, there are far, FAR better shooters out there.

I was hoping for getting our NPC companions, thus far only picture and some voice, into the 3D world. So far nothing in this direction, though it could be one of the omitted features in alpha.

Anyway, I will try it all out without a doubt, though it might take a while as currently I'm almost at Beagle Point. I have no idea what will be given to players out there but perhaps we will be getting a basic suit to exit the ship.
