Neptune’s Pride: The Complete Epic

In case you missed it first time around in March 2010, this epic space conflict AAR is about as required-reading as this site has to offer.

Neptune’s Pride is a slow-form multiplayer Strategy game. We got together with our friends from PC Gamer to play. Weeks of bloodthirst, treachery and violence on a galactic scale later, we stopped. Then took a few weeks to recover. And then we wrote about it. The results follow. They say more about the players than anyone would like to admit.
