Elite: Dangerous

The last two days of any kickstarter are typically the biggest. It's not too surprising to see the upswing in the last 48h. Though it had already been funded by that point, we saw the same thing with Star Citizen and from what I hear that's pretty typical of most projects on the site.
I have mixed feelings about this. I played Elite 2 and First Encounters to death and enjoyed them both. I hope it turns out better than what I'm expecting.
Almost missed this but they hit the extra goal that let it be ported to Mac, and the 10 extra ships. What I would love is something like the old Escape Velocity games where you could hire escorts and take over systems. Allow the players to form their own empires in both Single player and multi-player
