How is that actually? I've been interested but I haven't quite bit the bullet yet.

Everything that ThatsAFreeThinker said is true. Honestly, if you are looking for something that is continuously fast-pace I probably wouldn't recommend this to you. With that said this game provides some of the most satisfying gameplay I've ever had the pleasure of playing since Demon's Souls came out all those years ago. Like for example, I got pulled out of something called super cruise because pirates wanted my cargo. I proceeded to defend myself, but realized that I had to escape if I wanted to survive. I managed to get away from that encounter, and it has since then inspired me to be a bounty hunter. The game has some really beautiful vistas that enhances the exploration part of the game by ten-fold. If you want a really cool space sim, with some really intense/beautiful moments this is the game for you. Also, they are expanding the game soon which should bring some really awesome features.

I have been looking for something a little slower paced now that I'm heading back to school, so this may very well be up my alley. It does sound fascinating, and I have a prettyd ecent rig so I think I'll probably give it a go.

First keep in mind its a space sim so you are not important to the universe. A lot of people get turned off by this. I personally love it, its a game that I can get super involved with for hours or play 45 minutes of and not interrupt any story. A major gripe is a lack of depth and I agree. There are three main ways of gaining credits and that's basically it. However a way to get a ton more enjoyment out of the game is to role-play a bit. Even just reading the news on the elitedangerous subreddit adds a lot of immersion.

All that said its a beautiful game (seriously the graphics are top notch) that I've put almost 200 hours into and I'm still enjoying every bit of it.
