The big update is just the sheer scope. Galciv 2 could handle a few thousand "actors" (ships, planets, space stations, rebels, etc) in its engine before it would crap out. This engine is solely 64 bit, and built from the ground up to handle hundreds of thousands of actors. So the entire scope of the game will increase by an incredible amount.

Other than having actual combat, what really needed dramatic overhauls or improvements in Galciv2? It was already pretty darn great.

Creston, have you tried Distant Worlds: Universe? If not, get it right the fuck now! I think you might fall in love with it.

Star Ruler 2 is in early access and is good and getting better.

Turned based combat and pretty much Civilization in space, not my kind of fun. I'm hoping they make Sins 2. but I'm not holding my breath.

Not exactly like Civ. You can't build characters in Civ like you can starships in Gal Civ.

And the room. Went. Wild.

Did we all of a sudden forget Daikatana?

This brought me back to Interstate 76 which obviously isn't the same type of game. But man, I wish they would put out a new version of I-76 with modern graphics. Loved that game!

Thanks for the explanation. I'll have to try it out again. Any good websites discussing builds? I've always been fond of ranged characters.

The other thing is to actually port (*gulp*) the existing games over to make them playable. Kubuntu didn't stay long on my laptop because out of the nearly 700 games, I maybe had 100 that would run on Linux. If they can expand that even more, I'd probably switch an not look back. That and make it easier to get Steam running on OpenSuse. Really like the layout/feel of that distro.

I honestly don't see all of the praise with this game. I found it dull and slow to start with and unlike the Reaper of Souls, it never grabbed me. Maybe this expansion will do something for me as it does sound cool with the masters they are adding.

Fun game but I'm still waiting for a proper sequel with MUCH needed multi-core support.

That Star Trek mod for it is pretty great though. As long as you don't let the Borg get out of control. F'ing Borg.

Which one? Isn't there like 2 or 3 mods?

This was a cancelled Kickstarter from awhile back. Too bad it did not get funded but I'm glad they got some alternate funding!

I could care less honestly..just don't understand why anyone gives a flying flip that a female isn't in a game....esp. since there was a playable female character earlier.

So why aren't people bitching at the countless thousands of other games that don't have a playable female character?

Far Cry 3 had co-op as well, but it was a separate part of the game. Unless they specifically say "Campaign Co-op", I will believe it's a bullshit side-game. SO many games tossed out "co-op!" on the package, only to find it meant something different from expected.

Saint's Row got it right, and improved from one game to the next, to where you almost NEED a second player for SR4.

Anyway, they confirm this is campaign co-op, it'll be the first game I've bought day-one in years.

Uh, in the E3 video they specifically said "Drop in coop"

I believe they also mentioned sandbox co-op and not campaign-level.

Damn, you guys are not making it easy to hold off until release, luckily my wallet is making the decision for me.

My credit card told my wallet to STFU and "take my credit!"

Do I really need to spell out that I'm not talking about a handful of rabid space game fanboys who'll give their eye teeth for a space game, but the vast majority of "normal" people. I don't know if you guys are multi-millionaires or live at home with your parents but for most of us with real life commitments and debts, then yes $150+ for a game is completely fucking absurd. As was discussed last night, even $60 is considered too much by most these days. Most people aren't even looking at games until they're hitting $30 and under.


I have student loans, four kids a wife and a mortgage. I also know how to save money for something I want.

Every time I see this title now I get that stupid song in my head, The girl is so dangerous....

Anyway, $150? Yeah. Keep smokin that rock.

Depends on how you feel about games. I put more time into Elite 2: Frontier when I was in the Navy than any other game in my lifetime. I look at it as $50 for the game, $50 for all of the future expansions and $50 donation to a company that has put solid games out in the past. This and Gal Civ 3 are the two games I paid at least $100 because of how good their previous games were and I don't see a problem with that

Its looking pretty good but single player only, top down games should always have some sort of coop. Would buy if they added some proper story mode coop.

Not necessarily with RPGs. I mean Fallout 1/2 didn't and the upcoming zombie RPG Dead State doesn't.

Remember Aliens Colonial Marines..... and what bullshit and lies were spread before that released....

Gonna be a let's play material for me, and if it's only 3 hours... well then the let's play was at least worth my time Though thankfully, not my money

Yeah, but that was a different studio, right? Also, this one has been worked on longer than the other so at least it seems they are getting it right.

Remember AvP or Alien on the C-64? I have faith that this one will do the series justice.
