Dissapointing
 
Hi all!

It's been a while since I last visited the Phong's Head.
*takes a swig from his brewski*
Of late I tried several different 4X games (a very small revival has occured so it seems) like, Distant Worlds, GalCiv 2, Endless Space and Legends of Pegasus. But none of them has the same apeal to me as Space Empire IV (I really gave SE V a chance, but it didn't work out for me). Legends of Pegasus comes closest to SE IV, but it's so bug ridden it's almost unplayable (it has gotten very much better since the release though). I really like the real time combat. Maybe a good pointer for Aaron...?
Anyway, will there ever be a worthy successor to SE IV?

PS. I saw Malfador has announced an android game.

Sword of the Stars is pretty good, especially if you get the collection - you've got six races each with very distinct play styles, especially in terms of their means of starship propulsion! (Some of these are pretty creative, too - for instance, the Hivers move REALLY slow, but they can set up teleport gates which let them warp in ships from any other gate in the empire in an instant! Woe to the player who assaults a Hiver world... and then there's the Morrigi, whose fleet speed is proportional to the NUMBER OF SHIPS in the fleet! :shock: Hit 'em fast and hard, indeed!)

As for Malfador's Android game, I asked Aaron about it, since he hasn't released any screenshots as promised yet, and he said it's a space RPG in the vein of Starfury... Interesting! :)

I've played with Star Ruler and Endless Space a bit. Both are good games. SOTS is fun as well, but stay away from SOTS II. (Moo3 reincarnate)

:D
