I actually bought the first one, found out you couldn't even remap your keys, and promptly asked for a refund.

Their developer is incompetent, will never buy another game from them.

If you can't get 101 stuff right, get out of the business.


That was ENTIRELY your loss!!! Congratulations on your shallowness! Party Thumbsup Rolleyes

Modern gaming is mostly flash little substance with a few gems here and there.

And that's what most entertainment is, a diversion. What else is it supposed to be? I don't game to get educated, I game for an escape. Same thing with music and film. I want to learn I watch a documentary or read a book. Going from MUDs to Everquest was fucking awesome! It wsa what most PnPers and MUDers had been dreaming about for years.

This. Most of the people who complain that modern games have lost their soul etc etc apparently don't realize that a lot of the mechanics they ticked the boxes on for 'hardcore' back in the day existed because technology was so limited that the developers had to settle for attempting more with less

Not sure how the hell you got burnt out on the first game when it was so freaking short. The second one was better with more options and game modes plus Co-Op.

I want a proper sequel. Not this MOBA shite everyone seems to feel obligated to try. F2P sucks donkey testicles.

For a free game you guy sure want to complain,

It wasn't free you moron. To the people who funded the game, they had every right to complain about it. PA was crowdfunded, since players funded the development of the game. The developer broke it's promises and then some. No one in their right mind would not criticize the clusterfuck that was planetary annihilation.

You do realize that crowd funding doesn't actually have any guarantees though right? Its basically you throwing your money at a project in the hopes it not only gets completed, but completed well. Those folks that threw over $10K at Star Citizen? They have zero recourse if the game never moves past beta.

The current humble bundle offers some great games for like 12 dollars. This includes Grey Goo, which is a pretty damn decent RTS.

I honestly just want to see how this all turns out.

If by some miracle they release a Squadron 42 and it doesn't suck gorilla testicles then I'm going to buy it and enjoy that.

I have zero confidence in the PU...period.

Hope they do a better job than the orion team did.

Did the Orion team actually do a bad job or just not the job you wanted them to do?

Also, their game isn't done yet.

Also I love how this trailer makes combat look fun and epic in realtime but the actual game has some boring-ass TB combat.

4. Re: Into the Stars Launches Mar 5, 2016, 13:11 Slashman
 
Well I'm only into my first run still but so far I've: Prospected for minerals, mined planets, sent shuttle teams on away missions, assigned crew to take care of emergencies ranging from civilian unrest to broken heating systems based on their skills, fought some the alien ships from the race trying to kill humanity, ran out of food and lost some civilian crew, made trade deals with an alien transport ship.

It takes some getting used to because there is so much to manage but if you remember that you can pause and assign crew/view ship systems etc, then you're good to go. Mostly...

This is actually a pretty cool game. Like a cross between FTL and Bridge Commander.

Great visuals. Rogue-like play. Huge replay value.

Similar to Titan Quest to a fault, depending on one's perspective. Nearly all the class skill trees are copy+pasted over, with a few shuffles. Using the same engine as they did and changing so little, one has to wonder why development of Grim Dawn took as long as it did.


This has to be the asshat comment of the day. You gotta be joking with what you just said right? They built all of those levels from the ground up using the titan Quest engine. yes, but those are all new effects, skills and classes added to the game along with all new updated textures.

You seriously need to get your eyes checked if you think this game was something they just copy and pasted.

Yeah I thought the same thing. I played titan quest last night for about 5 hours and I thought man GD is just leaps and bounds better than what TQ is.

Maybe he just didn't pay as much attention to TQ as he thought.

Distort history? You got one hell of a chip on your shoulder, bud. I wasn't 'distorting' anything, I simply forgot that 'GNN' was in the first MOO. Call it old age, not purposely twisting information to suit my purposes. My last name isn't Trump. You seem to have it out for GalCiv. Something you wish to share, a bad experience? You've been trying super hard to dissuade everyone from playing it. You know, there's time enough in the day to play more than one game, right?


=-Rigs-=

I didn't have a bad time with GalCiv 3. I had one of the most boring times of my life with it. It has no personality, no soul, nothing innovative or interesting. It is a by the numbers space 4x with the only thing truly cool about it being the ship designer and that was in GalCiv 2.

I was left scratching my head at what exactly they spent the dev time on while making GC3.

The game isn't 'bad' and it isn't 'good'. It's just a big fat meh. And I think I'd be fine if it was bad and you could blame a development hiccup or management. But the game is simply a huge list of missed opportunities, and some of those seem to have been purposely missed to add in as rather bland DLC down the road.

The last expansion being a great example. Most modern 4x games have hero characters in them by default. They used a high-price expansion to add them in. And that was pretty much all it added.

Sorry if you thought I was trying to offend you with my comment, I just find it funny that people think that the GalCiv series has ever had anything in it worth stealing (well apart from the ship designer).

Creston

If you're looking to get GalCiv3 and the Merc expansion check out GMG
Use the code MAR20 to get both together for $46

Or just don't get Gal Civ 3 and get Star Ruler 2 instead. SR 2 is actually fun, but if that's not important and you'd rather explore 6 anomalies in a row and find 10, 30, 6, 9, 40, 2 credit rewards, then Gal Civ 3 is totally for you. I'd rather explore an anomaly and find a planet killer ship but wtf do I know?

The GNN 'Galactic News Network' (that they stole from GalCiv2/3...not shit, same thing) is annoying and tells the player nothing they don't already know.

That's from the original Master of Orion, isn't it?

Screenshot

That android, who would pop up every few turns and tell you who was in first place, who had the most planets, or something equally useful?

Exactly. People love to distort history. Stolen from GalCiv... Rotfl
