    Am I the only one who liked that about Endless Space? It was pretty close to a pure, abstract game, with some nice solid mechanics. Sure, I wouldn't want every space 4x I ever play to be like that,...

    darn.... if I had seen that earlier...I've just done a clean wipe. Now to plug the other HD back in and hope things work ok. then a fun evening of reinstalling everything.

    Windows eh.

    Nope. Got sidetracked. I find that it's a lot easier to maintain enthusiasm when I'm working with somebody else. If you're keen, I'd be up for getting the ball moving again. A lot of the boring hard...

    Well, if you have any interest in helping to put together a tbs game, give me a shout. I'm usually on steam

    Thanks. The annoying thing is, I've more or less done all the hard work. [Of course, not really, but what I mean is: i've spent hours getting the systems in place for my 3d map and for setting up a...

    Howdy. I enjoy messing around trying to create overly ambitious strategy games in Unity every now and then. But I find that after a a few months of working on my own, I lose interest. It's a lot...

    That's exactly how I played it. I should probably return and complete more of the story. I reckon it would of been one of the stand out RPGs of the decade if Funcon weren't blinded by MMOs. A real...

    hardcore mode! Bet you'd feel more like a detective if you did that too. Go study old microfilm copies of newspapers, flick through card indexes, and visit London for the weekend to look up a rare...

    I wouldn't worry if it's depopulated myself. I played it a bit a while ago and thought it worked reasonably well as a single player RPG, and all the other people playing, jumping everywhere, just...

    I thought it was generally accepted that the unit designer was the worst aspect of SMAC? So perhaps having it left out was a good thing

    I kind of agree, but I would say that's one of ES's strengths. It's a game that's happy to be a game. the 4x space is potentially huge (although in practice, most games are very similar to one...

    I think the game would actually be involved if they removed the "tactical battles" completely. Tac battles in 4x games are rarely fun or interesting. At best, they're just a way for the player to...

    I think people are a little bit too harsh on Endless Space. Yes, it's a little dry. In the same way that chess is. In my mind, this is more than made up by the really tight game design and...

    I'm another one who has failed to enjoy Elemental. Even with Legendary Heroes, the game doesn't quite work.

    I can +1 Sid Meier's Civilization IV: Colonization though. Great game that.

    Also,...

    i actually said "once a month or something," which, as i need to spell it out, was meant to be taken as "with around about one column per month." Same way that Cardboard Children is sometimes weekly.

    And, all what? In my experience, it really doesn't offer much more than additional micromanagement. I want to love the game, I really do. But the tactics really aren't any more involved than in the...

    A six player co-op game of AI War would be immense! I've only played co-op once, and it was just the two of us, but it was great fun.

    I wouldn't recommend Dominion3 so easily. While it's a game I enjoy, it's fiddly as hell and requires quite a bit of note keeping. So make sure you know what you're getting into before you give it a...

    Well said.

    I think an irregular column on console games would be a good thing for the site. Once a month or something. Keep your friends close but keep your enemies closer :p That kind of thing. ...
