Too bad it's nothing special.

>>265114750

From what I've seen of video demonstrations, they actually managed to dumb down the system even more from Civ V.

To call it a strategy game would be embarrassing at this point. You've got the wizard/warrior/rouge equivalent of political affinities that don't really mean much to each other besides arbitrary points of advantage. The game is about as philosophically profound as a high schooler's instagram.

To say it won't ever live up to Alpha Centauri is an understatement of proportions I can't even fathom. If Alpha Centauri was the love child of chess and System Shock, then this game would be the abortion of connect 4 and Halo 4

Ill go back and play the superior AC thanks, This is nothing but a reskin of a shitty engine that even the devs admitted was shit

I don't play RPGs and we would be lucky to get any RTS atm.


As for 4x games, we've had a long series of mediocre 4x games released in the past year or so. BE is just another entry to this mediocrity.

it will be nothing more then a reskin of civ 5 the differences are little

my suggestion is to get alpha centauri

The only reason that game is even hyped in first place is the Sid Meyer/Civ brand attached to it.

It looks horrendous and if it was any other company developing/publishing it people would be shitting on it.

No, it will be complete shit just like civ 4 and 5 on release. Give it a couple of years and some expansions before it's worth playing.

If they would do full damage, not a fraction of it, to the whole stack, that would fix the stacks problems right then and there. Also no indirect fire on siege units is a fucking joke.

I never said it was difficult, stack is just annoying and obtuse mechanic in general.

The point is that deathstack is stupid outdated mechanic, it was conceived because of hardware limitations, keeping it now is just stupid. 1upt is better in every possible way, hating on the concept just because Civ V didn't implement it properly is just retarded.

>>265122803
>1upt is better in every possible way
except manouvering large armies and the fact that the AI can't deal with it

I really do not understand the hype around this. Seems like a Civ 5 reskin and unless they have shown gameplay of it why would anyone assume this is going to be GOTYAY.

>>265122803
>1upt is better in every possible way,
I really disliked controlling only 6-10 troops. Not only that but controlling them was a chore.

Why not just do it like Alpha Centauri did it? Worked well enough.

This is a rare game that is rarely talked about but still manages to be incredibly overrated. About the only thing it has going for it is AI.
The research is dull and uninterested, the races are forgettable as fuck, the combat is non-existent, the presentation feels plastic, soulless and manufactured, the rock-paper-scissors ship design is absolute wankery. Not to mention ship design is practically useless since the ships are updated automatically when you research the dull as fuck laser 1>laser 2>laser 3 bullshit techs.

It felt like a more complicated MoO2 with all the fun sucked out.
>>
>>265129024
Galciv is irrelevant in this discussion.
There's a heap of Space4X, and Fantasy4X.
I'm starved for 4X who don't belong in either genre. Outside of Civ, there just isn't much.
