    Holy kittens, Distant Worlds at a price I can actually conceive of paying? Has Matrix Games finally come around? I’d say that’s also a pretty decent way to treat your long-term customers, offering a pretty significant discount.

    No we only have to wait for the summer sale, and get it for half of that.

      I was worried until I got 2 thirds of the way down the post, as an owner of all of them this is a no-brainer. $19.99.. equates to around £12 GBP, the cost of a ticket for one at the cinema…. and I strongly dislike cinema’s luckily :) Whoop!
      If you have not got this, get it. If you have it, get it.
      I sense a raft of mods that will scratch any itch…
      Physical copy for me!!

      Hmm, methinks that you should just fork over what they’re asking off the best 4X game on the market….

      Just saying.

    Well, at this point I have pretty much no excuse not to buy it.

    So, how high does it score on MasterofOrion-o-Meter? (assuming that MOO2 is 10, and Sword of the Stars 2 on release is minus infinity)

    • Brian Rubin says:

      Kind of apples and oranges. MoO2 is turn-based with smaller galaxies. This is a massive real-time ant farm. Personally, as great as MoO2 is, I give it a 9 and Distant Worlds an 11. ;)

    The basic problem I had with Distant Worlds is that I can barely read the font. I have a 15″ laptop and at native resolution with my glasses on it gives me a headache just trying to read the (abundance) of information on the screen. The combination in small font and bad font choice tainted the whole impression I had of the game – and sadly I couldn’t get past it.

    • Brian Rubin says:

      Ugh, yeah, one of the problems people seem to have at non-standard resolutions seems to be reading the font, which is a damned shame.

Chime In!
