Ok, so its a silly title and silly idea, but I think this might be kinda fun. I'm definitely planning on giving it a bit of a go, at any rate.
Whats not to like?
Yah, could be worse, could be something like "Gratuitous Tank Battles".

I'm really looking forward to the realistic damage models. One of the reasons I've stuck with WWIIOL for so long. Death to hit points!

Sorry guys, your single player game is amusing but nothing earth shattering.

Since when are $20 budget titles released by small teams after being made in less than a year ever supposed to be "earth shattering"?

Isn't the entire purpose of games to be, well, amusing? Entertaining?
Welcome to Blue's, where if it doesn't make you come just thinking about it, it's the crappiest crap that was ever crapped.

Any sign of real supply and demand for the economy? Limited resources and the ability to create resource monopolies that make taking ports worthwhile?

With that said, I wish people would show more support to Indie developers by not pirating. If you don't want to fork over the money for it, don't download it. We all should support the PC platform more and take away the ammunition the console developers have against the PC market. I'm getting really sick of the console crowd labeling all PC gamers as pirates

Why doest that sentiment only apply to indie developers?

Because for some people there's a magic threshold, like a reverse vagina, where a business turns into something that should be aborted.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I was under the impression that GSB basically didn't allow you to really control battles, right? You build the ships, form them into fleets, and then you just have to watch them duke it out without anything you can do about it?

That's been my main reason for not buying it (well, that and the fact that I have about 30 games I have yet to play.)

If a game is about battles, I want to be the one controlling those battles. Not the AI. It's always been my main aggravation with GalCiv2 as well.

Yep, that's all you do. I had the same reaction. Not my cuppa.

I bet all of the people who have just bought the lifetime sub for 75 in the latest offer are very happy indeed !!!
Some may very well be.. if the free/premium split is anything like DDO, it can be worth it to occasionally sub for a month.

It's like seeing a passenger train wreck. You know you've got something, anything better to do, but you can't help but slow down and look for body parts.

Maybe Broussard and John Romero should go in on a new startup. They'd get so little done they'd have time travel invented before they even met.

Does the game still suck? I recall checking it out several years ago and thinking it was a horrible representation of D&D.
It's not so bad. Does what it can for not having a turn-based combat system. Lots of common ideas with Monte Cook's Arcana Evolved mechanics, with the action points and stepped power gains.

I don't like the xp inflation though. Makes it seem like an impossibly long road when you're used to needing just a few thousand to level, and then it gets multiplied 10x.

I avoided it for the nickel and dime method, it will be interesting to see how this plays out. Iirc the game is only $20 US but each module is $5 US, with more than 50 modules, so it's hard to see how this can last but who knows.

Another viable strategy for that is subbing for a month, getting the free turbine points, playing all the normally inaccessible stuff during that time, then buying a module with those points so you can access it when your sub ends.

Or you can just keep all your money like I've done, and not worry about it. Course, you're not going to end up with uber gear, or be on any world achievement lists, or anything hardcore - but I do enjoy playing with all my old college gaming buddies. We're scattered to the four winds, but this still lets us get together on a regular basis, on the cheap.

Looks like they hit on a solid business model. There's a place for everyone at the table now.

Personally I'm enjoying it again, just couldn't justify the monthly sub. Don't feel any real need to buy points either, but I guess a few people do.
