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.

You also need to link a Microsoft account to the account your create on their website. Apparently, no way around this.

Windows 10 I'll install in a month or so. I'm not creating a Microsoft account to play their game.

Higby leaving is a loss. He communicated well. However, it seems they aren't doing that much with PS2 anymore. So it doesn't matter.

There are plenty of people who haven't played this F2P title. So far, it hasn't been that popular. They just have to get enough people buying stuff to cover expenses.

The rats are fleeing the sinking ship.

Sinking? You think the PS4 version of Planetside 2 is going to fail? Seriously doubt that. And then they will port it to XBox.

He is a NC guys not a Vanu guy.

Also I predict that the PS4 version will become the priority and the PC version will die.

Last I heard, the PS4 version is a separate team. Its obviously a priority. The XBox version will be another priority. The PC versions development slowed down but think they must have shifted people to H1Z1.

The PC version won't die anytime soon. Why would the new company kill something that makes them money? Its obvious you haven't a clue.

Launching simultaneously on PC and iPad. I hope it's good but yeah, I'll wait and see if this is just a half-assed, yet miraculously more expensive mobile port. I though Civilization Revolution on mobile was awful.

Yeah... That has my concerned too. PC and iPad versions.

Bought Warlock 2 and AoW3 already. This one looks nice but do I want another fantasy 4x game?

Yeah the ship design was fun. The rest was too shallow. Was kinda a waste of money. Not sure I'm interested in the 2nd. Lots of other 4x games coming out.

Age of Wonders 3 next month!

Think Valve is just trying to compete with the new consoles. Severely underprice them on hardware costs and game prices. Try to cause some havok/alternatives.

Your right.. but then while your stuck for the next 6-7 years on one platform that cant be upgraded. the pc crowd gets to move on to better and better.. my prime point i would like to point out to.. console games support 32 players .. rarely will it allow more.. pc games support 64+.. i cant remember if it was BF2 or BF3.. the pc had like 9-10 classes plus 64 players and so on and so on.. while the console had limited maps and 32 players with 5 classes.. simply cause the console couldnt handle the complexity that a pc has..

PS4 will get PlanetSide 2. Supposedly it will be the same experience as the PC client. So thats several hundred players on a map.

The 2 craft collision looked excellent. However, it looked like it would take a full day to build a medium size ship. Granted that the building process itself looks really good.

Interested to see how the weapons and combat will work.
