    You have plus points for mentioning Conquest Frontier Wars as another space game with great music – it was majestic indeed. The first Homeworld game was awesome in this regard as well IMO. Sadly, i never played Endless Space, Star Ruler, Emperor of Fading Suns neither Phantasy General, so i would not know…may look into some utube vids to see/hear for myself.

    Thanks for the podcast. I could never forgive the game for not reminding me when my ships were in combat.

    Whenever my empire got to any size I would get in more than 1 battle at the same time. I would eventually forget about 1 battle and reflexively hit next turn so I could advance the battle I was zoomed in on.

    After losing a dozen ships in this way I was too pissed to play again..

    Keep up the good work.

    Yay, thanks for going through Ascendancy, another “revenant” game of mine. Nice soundtrack, silky graphics, butter-like interface. Science tree was just freaking BRILLIANT! The best and believe-est i’ve seen up to that day and age. AI was the only flaw i think. Not a challenge without Antagonizer patch – cant even place stuff on planets properly. I dont remember how many time i wished for a difficulty settings.
    Govoroms and Chronomists are so complete cheaters that even Antagonizer will not help the AI. Oh, and usage of mirmidonic carbonizer should be outlawed by Galaxy counsil ^_^

Chime In!
