Rule Stars: Star Ruler


Many internet tipsters have been forwarding this particular title toward us over the weekend, and it's looking intriguing. Star Ruler is a 4X space strategy that... well, some features: "choose however many systems you desire; you are limited only by the speed of your cpu... Full 3D too much to handle? Flatten maps for ease of interaction ... Massive ship battles fought in real-time with particle effects and directional damage... Play with as many competitors as your server can manage, with drop-in-drop-out compatibility." Sounds too good to be true, eh? Now go look at the video I posted below. Yeah, I'm going to be taking a look at this one. At £13 for the GamersGate pre-order, (also on D2D) and it being out on Saturday, it's almost worth a punt in the dark. Much more on this soon.
