Yes Space, the best real time strategy game will forever be C&C.

Have you played the somewhat newer RTS', like Planetary Annihilation, Ashes of the Singularity etc.? I only played Sins of a Solar Empire and it was quite good. Perhaps the stellar setting (like, in space...) makes me a bit biased.

Metro Exodus is now 25% off over at The Humble Store.

That didn't take too long. As this game I actually WILL play, I'll probably yield at 50-ish. :D

@SV: thanks, Speedy Gonzales. Posted Image I do believe the game has been at that price since the very start of the Summer sale. It's one of those cases where there are simply too many great deals for me to highlight them all. Posted Image

Yeah yeah, always some twist to show me I shouldn't have had any hope from the beginning. ;)

Me included. I came a bit earlier as it became clear there won't be a tutored voyage back - as it was to Beagle Point. Meaning no gatherings, more or less solitude for months.

I admit, I'm no hermit. I like some time off, but that is it. So I used fast lane, meaning Neutron Highway, and came back before losing my mind.

Very refined of you, prospector SV. Posted Image

I can't help but think that in a real-world scenario navigating that asteroid field would be extremely hazardous. Way too big of a collision risk at every turn, so, in my mind at least, it would make more sense to use some automated unmanned craft to tend to such affairs.

Just a walk in the park for you, from what I can tell, though. Posted Image

Bah, not a problem for a triple elite player... :D

I would really like to see the big ships in Elite act like BIG ships. Anaconda is bigger than a football field yet, as you can see in the vid, it moves as if there was next to no momentum. True, this Anaconda is quite pimped up, engineered to the full mostly, but the hugeness of the ship should be reflected more obviously.

As it is, ships of all sizes are mostly flown like fighters, all viable for fixed weapons. I do wish we'd get a ship that acts like a corvette or even a frigate in Star Wars for instance.
