No review copies for anybody before release makes me a bit suspicious...

$45 for an Early Access game is a bit steep imho.
Especially if you consider that all JA games after JA 2 were either a bit garbage, rather terrible, or complete trash.
And sadly, I'm not having high hopes for this.

Just FYI, while the steam version of UFO Aftermath in principle works on Windows 7, it is sometimes so slow (regardless of system specs) that it is effectively unplayable.
No clue if this happens for everyone.

No! Completely different.

[...]the guys at Phoenix Interactive see themselves as the victims of intolerance and hostility.
Having read the article, I suspect that it's their own intolerance and hostility that is the problem here.

I would even accept a lot of hassle to get rid of Windows if I could be certain that I get the majority of my games (say 90%) to run under SteamOS.

Sadly, that isn't possible for now.

Looking at the comments at the steam forum, it seems that these versions are rather buggy.
I considered buying them for the convenience of having a easy way to install and play them, but it seems they are just as difficult install and run as if I used my old CDs.

Reading through the comments on the Steam forum, this really seems like a quick hack job to make some money with a single-player campaign.

So my advice is to avoid it, just like the browser version.

A fine example why I hate this "Public Relation" speech:
There are setbacks, the game will be delayed, but don't you worry, "Today is a big day for everyone on the Marvel Heroes team!". Everything is fine. In fact, everybody should be grateful!

Never admit that the company is less than 100% perfect.

How can testing cosmetics on animals save millions of lives?

Procter & Gamble is not a pharmaceutical company, its products include pet foods, cleaning agents and personal care products.

Yes, it was terrible. Not only was it the most blatant pay-to-win I have ever seen, it's also very boring.
Not a good sign if you want people to pay for every little thing; decent Mercenaries, decent ammunition, better base buildings, etc etc.

In short, a terrible game. I don't think there is anything of substance that can be rescued for the Steam release.

Why film cameras are better than digital cameras.
I honestly thought at first that this was a satire, because nothing in that advertisement makes any sense AT ALL.
But alas, it's real (though almost 2 1/2 years old)

I own (usually more than once)
SimCity (and 2 expansions, SimCity 2000, SimCity 3000, and SimCity 4 with Rush-hour.
I think it's safe to say that I like SimCity. But they lost me as a customer for the next installment.

I recommend you NOT try to defend censorship. It is evil in all forms.
You probably should educate yourself about what "censorship" and "fascism" really means before using such difficult concepts in a public discussion.

A little help:
allowing pornographic and violent media only to 18+ people is neither.

Just to make things clear:

The sale of such games is not verboten in Germany; they just can't be sold to somebody under 18. And you can't advertise for such publications in media that is available to minors.

Only very few games are actually banned in Germany; I think the number is 13.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_banned_video_games#Germany

Nobody forces a developer/publisher to censor their games to get a under 18 release in Germany.

Online sales, where it's difficult to determine the buyers age, are tricky though...
