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.

Was invited into the beta. Played quite a bit last night before it crashed on me. The ability to move through ages is pretty cool. There seems to be an expanded list of things you can build and edicts to issue but like previous Tropicos, it pretty much is the same.

Hey Blizzard, how about investigating the massive lag that's been going on the past week and kicking people out? Nothing more infuriating than paying for a SP experience but getting disconnected any time I want to run through the game solo.

I never got the point of the Library Sharing feature. If I can't be logged into my account and playing a game at the same time someone I've shared my library with wants to play a totally different game from my library it loses any value it may have had.

You can be logged in; you just can't be playing a game.

Btw, this has been available for everyone for over a month now. I never got a beta invite and noticed it a couple of months ago. So did my other friends.

They can call me when the building space for an entire city isn't the size of a postage stamp.

I'm sure modders will fix that if Maxis doesn't.

looks boring.

Part of me kind of agrees with you. I think it has awesome potential though, and will still be fun. I'm still going to buy it, and at ~$20 it should be well worth it. I'm just worried that there won't be enough to do in the game to keep me interested for very long. I've been following the game for well over a year, so I've got a fair idea about all the features the developer has talked about. Beyond building, farming , and some fishing/hunting there doesn't seem like there is much going on. From what I've heard there is no real tech tree other than a single upgrade to the tool levels. You can't do any research for new buildings and you never advance beyond a "thatched roof" time period.

There's also no combat which I understand is not the main focus, however, fending off bandits would keep it interesting.

Just stop, people. What was the last good Alien/Aliens game you played? I mean, it was over a decade ago, right? The trailers ALWAYS look good, and the game is always shit. Don't fall for it again!

The sound was freaky enough:

Unfortunately, this won't be as terrifying as the original Alien on the Commodore 64 and what I meant about that was every playthrough was random. You did not know who the android was, nor did you know where the Alien was; every playthrough was new and different.

That being said, if the developers do not have any scripts set up where Ellen reaches 'big turn of events a' and the alien doesn't show up but does on a different playthrough, great but I'm not getting my hopes up. It would be too much to ask the devs to make a game where the alien truly wanders the ship and only turns its attention on an area that Ellen passed through or makes noise around. I'm billing this as a limited combat-orientated "Tomb Raider in space."

90% chance that the game promises features that will never end up in the game, or just isn't even complete at all!
*cough StarDrive cough Dark Matter cough*

Yeah, and they produced Endless Space, so what's your point?

And Endless Space was an awful mess as well, so what is your point?
The combat system in the game is atrocious. It's a shitty roll the dice, rock paper scissors and hope you win combat system. There was no hint of skill to it at all. You could lose 2 ships against 1 equally classed ship because you guessed an ability wrong on one stage of the fight. That is just absolute piss poor programming. Why would I ever want to play a game with combat when the result is more or less random as to whether I win or not?

Sins Rebellion is still the standard by which I judge all present 4X games, and it will remain so until someone does it better. Hell even Fallen Enchantress: Legendary Heroes is a better 4X game than Endless Space.

Sins: Rebellion???? Really???? No strategy or skill there. Just who has the most ships and dump them off into a system, overpowering everything. And, I don't count it as 4X as classic 4X games like MoO, were never real time.

At least Endless Space presents a challenge. Yeah, combat is different and not my ideal way of not being able to control the battle but at least it leaves you guessing; not like the Command and Conquer tactics of Rebellion where you just spawn a Titan, a couple of capitals and overload a system with frigates and corvettes, pretty much wiping the enemy out in no time. Oh, and Fallen Enchantress, really? It took them 3 tries to fix that game. At least Endless Space was fun and engaging the first go around. You should also upgrade your standard of space 4X games. Distant Worlds is far better than Rebellion.

As far as I understand, this game goes directly through Steam, not Stardock, not anyone else. When I look at my games on the account page, Legendary Heroes only has a Steam key and no way to download it directly.

I haven't purchased directly from Stardock, but I don't think that's true. Look at the bottom of the Stardock page. It says you can purchase from Stardock, Steam, Gamers Gate, Gamestop, Kalypso, or Gamefly. I'm sure that the Gamefly purchase requires Steam, for example. I'm sure if you order from Stardock, it's an exe that doesn't require Steam. I could be wrong.

From my Account page:

Fallen Enchantress: Legendary Heroes Upgrade (Steam)
Serial number: XXXX-XXXX-XXXX
Please use Steam to register your serial number and download this software. Login to your existing Steam account (or create a new one), select the "Games" tab and "Activate a product on Steam..." menu item.

Same thing with Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion. Plus, if you buy from the other sites, you get a Steam key.

I wonder if, like The Witcher 3, Fallen Enchantress will be released retail for purchase and not subject to a 3rd party license agreement.

Brad, you want my money or not?


Stardock got rid of Impulse didn't they? If you bought it from Stardock directly, wouldn't you own it outright?

Heh, there's a fanboy on the KS comments to the story who was saying he was contacting Steam to request a refund because 505 Games stole this idea and it makes him upset at the thought of it.

The only Stronghold I've ever bought was Stronghold 2. I don't think I'm over that yet.

Is there a difference between Stronghold and Crusaders other than the setting? Which is better?

Crusader was more of a military conquest game with the ability to hire mercenaries. 1 had both an economical and military campaign. I always sided with Crusaders as my favorite of the series.
