Look at this game reminded me of Derek Smart. Where has he been lately, anyway?

You just had to mention his name, didn't you? *shakes head* You are aware he Google's his name daily, right?

Distant Worlds just plain kicks ass! Is it over-priced? A little. But think about it this way...the time you spend in this game is massive! It's super intricate and detailed. It's the 'War in the East'/'War in the Pacific: AE' of space 4x games. They probably would have better success with putting things on STEAM but MATRIX mostly specializes in the niche wargaming genre, which, right now, is very small. Just as adventure games died off a while ago, along with space-sims, the hard core wargaming grognard genre is almost back to 'underground' status, as it was in the 80's when it began. I'm not a fanboy that thinks MATRIX can do no wrong. They can, and have at certain points. But they have their reasons for not making a bigger presence. That said, I would really love if they would put their games on STEAM eventually. Maybe if wargaming comes back 'en vogue' again....or maybe not.

Regardless, I'm seriously psyched about the expansion. I've played Legends to absolute death and then some. Mods help, but it's nice to see DW hasn't been abandoned by MATRIX...
