    Sigh. I wished they would fix Beyond Earth, first.

    It's not a broken game (in terms of playability), but it's lacking so much to make it a decent game. It's basically similiar to how Civ V started.

    It's being developed for the ipad at the same time as the PC & Mac, I'm sure it's going to be a shining example of a game...

    Agree with Scroome about Beyond Earth, there has been a single patch to address some of the major issues, however it's still what I would call 'basically functional' in terms of playability. It could have been so much better.
    Probably the biggest disappointment of 2014?

    Meh, GalCiv3? I'm not expecting Starships to bring anything new to the table except a new skin.

    It's certainly up there. I was really hoping it wouldn't turn out to be just a glorified Civ V mod, designed as a cash in.

    It's really starting to feel that way.

    I feel Sid is starting to go a little Molyneux (just a little more cash brained)

    I was just looking for this kind of game this weekend. I'm currently reading a book on this kind of subject material and got the hankering. Then I realised that there isn't really like a squad based small fleet rts out there.
