Nexus 2 Kickstarter

This Kickstarter looks to raise capital for development of Nexus 2: The Gods Awaken, a sequel to the space-based real-time tactics game Nexus: The Jupiter Incident. The developer for the project is Most Wanted Entertainment, which was formed by members of Mithis Entertainment, the now-defunct developer of the original game, and their goal is $650K to create the sequel. Here's word:

The creators of the original game now have a unique proposal for you… to participate in the development, by pledging funds that will allow us to begin production of the next instalment in the Nexus story.

Our vision is clear: we have a full design for a truly worthy successor to the original game, one which will take forward the story of mankind’s expeditions to the hostile reaches of interstellar space, and bring it up to date with state-of-the-art visuals and even richer gameplay.

Well I really enjoyed Nexus.

The only problem was the game-breaking bug where it crashed during a sequence and didn't let me finish the game.

Apart from that it was a fantastic experience.

Wow the posts in this topic make me sad to be a pc gamer. Too complicated? Nexus? A game you could win with the shift key and 1 mouse button?

And to the guy saying the game felt staged.. I have only 1 thing to say to that.. DUH.
Reread the genre, TACTICAL COMBAT SIMULATION. Read up what a tactical combat challenge IS. That is the very definition of STAGED COMBAT in a game. To complain that the game felt staged is like saying that Homeworld 2 had too much space. Or that there was too much shooting in Call of Duty. Tactical challenges HAVE to be staged. Or it would be brainless skirmish.

But the sad abilities of pc gamers we have here aside, why is this kickstarter 2 days shorter than Obsidian one?

Hah, the old "you are playing it wrong" bit. Do you dislike any games, Eraser? If you do, it's because your abilities are sub par, and you obviously don't understand the genre, duh.

That is not entirely correct. As it has been said it's not a strategy game but a tactical simulator. You are not correct in saying that he he is wrong in implying that you are not playing it correctly since you, probably, just have different expectations from it.
To use an analogy: it's like expecting Baldur's Gate or Fallout to be an action adventure rpg. It's not. Gothic or the elder scrolls are action adventures with rpg elements, Baldur's gate and Fallout are rpg games. There are similar mechanics but the games are fundamentally different. It's the same for Nexus and other games of a similar genre in which you control several ships in a strategical manner in space.

Are you seriously trying to tell someone what his expectations were, in contradiction to what -he- says they were? I guess it couldn't possibly be that he has the slightest validity to his complaints...it must just be that he's a moron who doesn't know what he wants.

It really is -not- a personal attack if someone has a different opinion of a game that you like, you know. Well, unless you behave like Eraser when you find out about it. Because he obviously makes it personal.

I never intended to make it personal so I leave it at that. It's just that the first posts in this topic rubbed me the wrong way It's clear some people didn't like the game, but I got pokey because some people invented issues nobody else ever had to reinforce their point. And the "felt too staged" comment was really all I wanted to particularly nag, because complaining about staged battles in a tactical simulator is pretty absurd.. no?

Those who felt insulted at THAT 1 line regarding sad abilities, well if you find Nexus too complicated what else would someone call it? That your are great at not understanding complex games? No, that is sad. Not even meant as insult, I just think it is sad there are PC gamers who think Nexus was too complex. Imo the game market today has nothing but shallow games and Nexus was unique yet not even all that complex. So yeah...

And I am sorry people find it offensive when I find posts sad. ^^ To me, it is not exactly a thing to celebrate when 4 people in a row complain about things that make no sense about the game. Heck, if someone had said "Combat was too lopsided, sometimes you could only win by trial and error, equipment choices later on could dead-end you" I'd have agreed to that. Those were the real flaws of the game.
