So what's the 4X crowd playing these days?
There's been some interesting looking releases in the 4X genre this last year or so. Has anyone found their new favorite 4X game or are we still playing old classics? Or still lost in Crusader Kings perhaps?
I'm currently messing about with Civ IV (I bounced off of Civ V) I'm thinking of getting into something new as Civ has gotten stale. Thought maybe I'd get some ideas. I'm not big on fantasy themed games but as long as the difficulty is there and interesting tactical choices to be made then the theme is not important.
I tried Warlock but found it too easy, I understand there is DLC to make it harder but I'm not sold. Fallen Enchantress looks lovely but I hear the AI is a useless pushover.
I love sci-fi stuff so there is that Pandora-First Contact. Anyone try it? Last I heard it was in an state that badly needed patches but that was some time ago.
