I'm 10 or 12 missions in to the campaign so far (about the same number of hours), it seems I've barely scratched the surface based on my progress with the tech tree and across the world map, but it's pretty awesome! I love the blend of base-building and tactical missions, and the overall progression is satisfying. It's a great introduction to the game, too, because you start out with only basic units and buildings, then unlock new stuff slowly as you go. I'm sure that's a lot easier to swallow for newcomers compared to survival mode, where everything is thrown at you at once.
I'd recommend ignoring the bitching and moaning on Steam reviews and forums, though. Most complaints are about the forced 'iron man' mode in regards to saving, as well as the difficulty. These are not new things introduced with the campaign, it's been that way throughout early access and they've been very straightforward in that it's not going to change. This is an intentionally old-school kind of RTS, and it's not going to appeal to everyone. But if that's what you like, GET IT, because it's really good.
I, for one, wholeheartedly support these guys for making a game that is actually challenging and doesn't allow you to save-scum to undo every little mistake. Sure, you will fuck up while learning the game and you will fail some missions... But apparently that's not okay for a lot of people. They can't stand "wasting their time," as if playing the game itself is no fun at all if it ends in a loss. And yet they also refuse to lower the difficulty (and reduce their meaningless score) out of some weird sense of pride. So it's a catch-22 of modern gamer idiocy.

Also, 12,231 people have rated the game on Steam.
Have to wait and see what leaving the EA program does for sales and reviews.
70% so far based on launch reviews.
Sounds like the campaign is just too hard. Hopefully that gets tweaked.

I think at this point it's blatantly obvious that GRRM is *actively* trying to avoid finishing ASOIF.

4 billion bucks and still can't get a first person PUBG or Firestorm game down here. Come on you fucks, don't do us dirty. The demand is there if the games are functional.
Not sure what you mean? Apex, Firestorm, and Blackout are all first person. You don't have them in Australia?

Check out Void Bastards. Not a rogue like fan but I played an hour or so last night and want to go back.

Comcast does so much lobbying that it says disclosing it all is too hard.
Disclose or go to jail.
Wait, so not disclosing is a few thousand dollar fine, while all their illegal lobbying reaps them millions? Can we make all corporate lobbying illegal already?

The consequences of something like this being on the books would be worse than the sin of gacha games.

I agree sports card have a similar mechanic. Difference is that they aren't a $134B industry, so have flown under the radar.

Fuck almighty, why still even bother with that piece of shit.

Forager? Maybe EGS is right.
That it's number one makes no sense to me. On the other hand, it's published by Humble, which has its own distribution platform. I wonder why they didn't make it exclusive.

God damn, I don't know who the majority of these characters are! I think the last time I played Mortal Kombat in a serious way was...probably around the time the first movie was out. Yikes! I can kinda see who some of these characters are (or are supposed to be), if it's indeed them and not some 'new character but with the same traits as an old one only with different color clothes'...
Hmmm, *thinks back* ...yeah, I think MK3/Trilogy was the last one I really got into, though I did play MK4 on the PC quite a bit but didn't really follow the very bare story... *shrugs* Something tells me I didn't miss much...
