Working my way through Chorus right now which is a surprisingly great little game. I don't usually really play third person space games because I'm more a of a from the cockpit type of dude but it has really intense atmosphere and the battles and psychic powers are tight.

I enjoyed Gal Civ 2. How different is this?

It's old with 7 year old play mechanics. It's not that fundamentally different from GC2 though the ship designing is goddamned atrocious in it with very clunky controls. You can design cool ships but you'll be spending some time doing it. Something you'll need to do to maximize your ship class because the default designs are merely "ok".
IIRC, ship design in GC 2 was also clunky and time consuming.

In my opinion the game is just boring AF. I tried to get into it like 3 different times because people kept saying it was great. But it literally had nothing interesting for me. Plonking down buildings on planets to get adjacency bonuses, the exploration just giving you nothing interesting. There was literally no reason to play this game versus Endless Space 2. And that was astounding to me...that they had a DLC to put heroes in the game...wtf? And the combat is equally uninteresting and flat. Why the hell was I playing this? That's what I thought all the way through.

...the open letter to Spotify does not request that Rogan’s show be taken off Spotify, nor does it demand that Spotify remove the Malone episode in particular. Rather, it is calling on Spotify to develop a comprehensive policy prohibiting misinformation
Toe the line, or get cancelled. Thanks, doc.

Uh, you realize the thing you quoted explicitly says it isn't asking for cancellation?
Stop trying to make Joe Rogan, a man that is making 9 figures to spread constant disinformation, a victim.
These 200 odd doctors are asking Spotify to implement a comprehensive system, where in the platform provider performs censorship duties, so that content creator 'lies' do not propagate. And only Spotify's 'truths' (or whichever powers influence it) are shared.

The road to hell is paved with good intentions.

Or maybe the road to saving lives is strewn with the turds of disinformation and crazy anti-vax theories.

Entitled battlefield fans say mean things.
Entitled battlefield fans don't know anything about how games are made or developed.
Entitled battlefield fans don't understand or care about the holidays.

And obviously this guy doesn't know anything about how to communicate to them.

He should have said something like this.
"Hope you all had a great holiday. We know your concerns. our team is well rested and we will have a road map up in a few days on what we are going to do to address them."

You know, meaningless happy words.

That's just about right...

And that's why films/music/games have producers. The people who know how to focus the creative talent and keep things on time, scope, and budget. It's too bad people like Levine, Roberts, et al. can't get out of their own way.

Yeah but then we wouldn't get that awesome awesome...je ne sais quoi

More like a clone. They even use the same location destination marker. After a hour with it the main difference is that the writing is inferior.

Whoa...who pissed in your cornflakes? Its a free game for crying out loud.

Are people still using the "better version" quip. Buggy broken games are released every day on every store including Steam.
Cyberpunk anyone?

What the hell are you even talking about? I mean it will have had 6 months to a years worth of patches and likely include all DLC released up to that point. That's how I got Control and Phoenix Point with everything included for less that $20.

What does this have to do with broken buggy games being released on Steam?

It will eventually come to Steam and be a better version by that time...like Control. And it will be cheaper!

It will NEVER support VR. The developers found that it was not profitable and that they would have to compromise too much of the gameplay to get it to work.

Civilization clone?
Basically.

Ehhhh...it plays a bit differently and has different (better) combat and the goal is not quite the same. But it is a historical 4x so I'm not sure how some things could NOT be similar if we're talking about human history.

So saying it is basically a Civ clone does it a disservice I think.
