    some of the steam reviews are scathing currently with reports the game is no where near finished

    This comes as a bit of surprise then for a launch in 2 weeks !

    Don't know., given the current state of the games industry, it seems par for the course that the game isn't ready. ;)

    I'm quite keen to have a new 4X game but it will take something really special to unseat Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion from the top of my list!

    I never played the original moo games sadly so have no nostalgia to fuel me but the reviews are quite mixed. Still though, £23 for the standard edition on release is a nice price point, glad to see it is not another £40-60 monstrosity!

    I'm hoping once it's released one of the better you-tubers will do an overview. I consider it on my watch list for now :)

    I have nothing to say about the game itself (I haven't played it), but I was somewhat disappointed that in the "About WG Labs" section of the press release Wargaming claimed "WG Labs is an organizational unit within Wargaming that acts as a breeding ground for new ideas and solutions."

    New ideas, like rehashing a game from 1993? :rolleyes:

    Ha ha I just read that.

    Or take world of warships, a refined version of world of tanks. Not exactly new ideas, fun as it is :)
