Wow just WOW


#1

Looks like we have ANOTHER space story! And to add insult to injury they expect this game to be bought to play it. I don’t know if I should laugh or just face palm! That new one better be better than the older one if they think they can do this.


#2

I think it’s good for what it is. A hard scifi story with a focus on the technical aspects of the genre. Was it dry to me? Yes, but I’m also not a fan of this genre.

Learn a little tact, and stop trolling for attention. It makes you look bad.


#3

@bocoom I liked the demo for it and read a review on it I feel I would personally buy the game, but I’ll wait awhile. If your in to space kind of stuff, especially Battlestar Galatica, this may be a good one to buy.


#4

I’m with @Farside on this one. It’s decent, better than some of the other offerings.


#5

@farside what I cant speak my mind without being called a troll?


#6

Maybe you just have a naturally blunt way of saying things.

But, anyway, back to the thread’s actual subject, I remember what was said in the thread about COG’s business model, and how COG is expanding their direction and audience to include many genres. I found the lack of customization of the main character interesting. Although fans love romance, I appreciate that COG is not pandering as other companies (whom shall not be named) do. Romance is nice, but the main story has to be good too, unless it’s a dating game. Romance is also not necessary for every game ever. If someone enjoys tactics and strategy, I feel like they’d get a lot out of this game.

I am very bad at strategy myself.


#7

Hmm, strategy depends on your interpretion though. I find some very indigenous methods of tactics and strategy aren’t usually implemented because it really depends on what the writer ‘thinks’ will work and what won’t.

I’m a bit harsher on this aspect though because I’m one of those people who has a copy of the Art of War… heh.

I’ve played it a few more times, some interesting endings in there that are worth seeking out. But I do feel the endings aren’t satisfying because some of them feel like they could go on a bit further than they do =/


#8

@farside That is right! I tend to give my opinions to people raw, hard, straight, and fast! most of the time people cant handle it.

Also whole business model thing is good and all but I do not give a damn what genre it is! I just want a story game that I wont have to buy again and be disappointed that I could get the same thing but better somewhere else for free! Im looking at you Heros rise.


#9

Well, when I said strategy I meant strategy like strategy games. Most strategy games place you in the role of a leader, don’t have much customization for the protagonist, and give a various technical aspects that you can control and manipulate. I do feel like a lot of care went into this game. It’s not as rushed as Archaeologist.


#10

Archaeologist? whats that!


#11

@bocoom

I meant To the City of the Clouds. I forgot it’s not called Choice of the Archeologist.


#12

@bocoom - Perhaps adjust that raw, hard, straight and fast attitude? There’s a time and place for it especially if you know when to dish it out, but if you’re doing it all the time you’re just doing it wrong.


#13

@RVallant Im sorry but I need to do it. Just look at my avatar. Its an alligator/skunk. It has thick skin and can take anything but it will spray its stink in any direction if pissed off whether you like it or not. Like me!


#14

@bocoom - eh, isn’t there more important things to be getting pissed off about? Whatever works though, I just figure its better to be listened to than just ‘heard’ and passed off y’know?


#15

@RVallant I know there are more important stuff. Im just speaking my mind that’s all. And I do agree with you on that last statement.


#16

I’m genuinely unclear of what specifically your issue is?

You say you don’t care about genre, but from what I can tell you’re objecting to it being another sci-fi game?


#17

Wait a second, theres a new game out?


#18

@duck if it was free it would not be a problem. But seeing as you have to pay for it and that there is another one like it that you also have to play to pay is what made me mad.


#19

Apex Patrol, if you’re wanting a free space game.


#20

I already did genius! same with every other game on here!
