That trailer does not impress.

Combat looks awful. Characters have plastic faces?

What did these guys do right, that games like DayZ and H1Z1 didn't?

Even as far as shooters go, the one shot, no respawns king of the hill games were never exactly popular.

Personally, I'm stoked at their achievement, but I just don't get it.

Why is PUBG popular? Don't play it myself but watched a team of my favorite Youtube people play it.

Developers seem to be executing well. Team based action games are fun. Counterstrike, Battlefield. However, PUBG is many small teams in a match. Thats something new.

The difficulty doesn't ramp up until level 19 missions. Having good fun with the early access. Well worth the money. In the beginning it was a little confusing picking up everything. Had to read several tutorials.

Your killing each of these creatures over and over to get crafting materials which you need to progress to the next more difficult creature type.

Yes, played SiS a bunch. 79 hours. Its quite a good 4x game. Enjoyed it much more than Stellaris and some others.

Also enjoyed the new Master of Orion game.

Astroneer was a good buy for $20. Can't see myself playing more until the next major update. Ran through all the current content.

News Comments > Master of Orion DLC Next Month

DLC will be $10.

Stars in Shadow is an excellent 4x space game. Still in Steam early access. http://steamcommunity.com/app/464880/#scrollTop=0

Might like Stars in Shadow more than this latest MoO actually.

Doesn't sound bad for a DLC. Wondering the price.

The free expansion sounds like it will add some complexity. Game definitely needs it.

Now, I'm wondering how much return you could make on investing in development of a game? If it doesn't sell well, you take a loss and get back less than you invested?

Is it good? I'm curious. I've heard weird design decisions have been made that made the game not fun.

I would call it a good game that is worth the money. None of the design decisions seem odd. All good reasons behind them.

Parts of the design that were sub-par are being replaced, minor civs and spying.

Cripes just show me some gameplay. I can't tell how fun the game is because of the endless quick cut editing.

Wow, several negative views.

Played a full game of this early access version. From what the current version plays like, I'm expecting the release version to be great fun.

The early access version is quite polished. I've played 200+ turns so far. Reminds me of MoO2 but with much better graphics.

How's the space combat? I don't mind real-time, but I'm curious how much control you have over the fight. I saw another review on GoG say that you have little to no control and play mostly the role of spectator which would be disappointing.

Is there ground combat?

No, ground combat to look at or control. Not sure if they plan to add that.

The space combat does let you re-target groups of your ships against whatever an enemy brought. Doesn't seem like you can control your ship movement. Its pretty hands off but looks nice and doesn't cause a large wait. The devs said they plan to improve space combat.

Does it have a ridiculous amount of micromanagement like MoO2 did?

I loved MoO1, much simpler, but effective.

No, not a ridiculous amount. There is some micro tedium when you have a lot of planets.

Backed this on Kickstarter.

Its turn based so those are only played in multiplayer by a quite small percentage of the player base. The AI better be good.
