Anyone else been watching this game? Its released very soon (13 days from today), although its been in beta for a year or so (THANK GOD). Its basically a 4x game (Space Empires/Civillization anybody?) in real time with RTS gameplay. I heard it as Homeworld combined with Total Annihilation and I agree. Resources are infinite, and you can zoom in to a tiny fighter in one of your plantets gravity wells fighting off enemy bombers and than zoom out to the grand operation of a dozen solar systems monitoring the epic scale of your massive campaign. I've read alot, and apparently its very anti-micro which is where alot of 4x games go wrong. They've built the AI to be smart in evrything they do (auto-cast abilitys, targeting, etc.) and as far as I'm concerned they beat Supreme Commander. You assign ships to fleets and they act as a single unit. When you order a fleet to retreat, it makes sure ships jump as fast as they can, instead of jumping all at the same time which is how you'd normally move into areas. Factories can be made to automatically build, and even automatically assign every unit built there to a fleet instead of having to send units to the frontline mannually. They have the common 4x features such as diplomacy with non-allies, setting up trade with enemies and diplomacy, and even the ability to set a bounty on someone (such as your backstabbing ally). When its released whose up for a month long "every monday" (they can get that long) game? Thank god for multiplayer save functionallity. Check it out if you have not.
