    I fail to see what it lacks that that all other 4x games have. Sure, Sins is a streamlined 4x game, I won't argue about that (instead, I'd suggest that is one of its strengths). Unless you consider...

    In a 4x type game, it would be hard to do... you'd couldn't have conflict a zero-sum game, as then one side wins what the other loses, and eventually just steamrolls the world. So...

    I've been messing around with multiplayer ALB with a friend. It's a lot of fun. Just a shame there aren't any PvP orientated campaigns.

    I didn't know it was actually out. Is it? If so, how did I not know? I avoided the early access nonsense, and have been waiting for the full game
