    I get what you're saying. I don't feel that modern 4x games satisfactorily hit the balance between "meaningful decisions" and streamlined play in a way that is consistently fun. I'm certainly not...

    It may not fully answer your question, but your own saved races can spawn in your galaxy. I imagine you can force them to be used, rather than them just turning up by chance (or at least, that would...

    RPS' original WIT was pretty scathing, particularly about the AI combat. I note your reservations about it too. Do you feel like that's got better since first release?

    As a fan of both, either of those likenesses sounds good to me! Does that also mean its fairly repayable as a single player game? I understand it's structured around missions but is it the sort of...

    So, I just saw this come up on the steam daily deal sale at -75%. I'm only really going to play this in single player - is it worth a punt?

    Things attracting me to it are the turn based tactical...

    Hey Helio, I'm enjoying your AAR even if XCom isn't :P

    Best Combat mission game?

    Hi, despite doing some severe camping in the Flarepath's latest turn by turn order-a-thon, I've never played a combat mission game before. On the strength of the fun it is to play it vicariously, I'm...

    I took the plunge over the weekend and am probably mid way through my first campaign. I took the UN humans for a bit of homely SF, with my first colonies in Alpha Centauri and Sirus systems (SMAC...

    I've not got round to firing this up yet but I'm intrigued by the comments here and have some questions:

    1. Should I start now, even if it's a bit rough? At least I'd get a sense of the game's...

    Ugh. Calling those prompts in BE "quests" flatters them to extreme. That said, if the principle in CIV6 is to provide you with a discount beaker cost of given techs based on what...

    Well that's hard to tell before release, especially before people have played the mid-end game enough.

    The way I see it, it's going to be intricate like CK2 and EU4, with paradox's experience at...

    I think I value junk more than most other loot in fallout 4. precisely because i had an early shortage of gears, adhesive and screws so started hoarding them. Now, even though I don't have a shortage...

    Indeed. However, I live in DRC, which is pretty much off the map in normal terms (ATMs have only been operational here for the last 5 years or so). I think the warranty is 3 years on my MX100, that's...

    Thanks! I'll try that. Sadly, the RMA may not be possible as I'm no longer in the UK to lodge it and I doubt there's a local distributor. Rather annoying!

    Ok, thanks guys. It looks like I can use my dual band router as a client as long as I use the "input" ethernet port to connect to the wider world. I don't think it'll know any different whether...
