Might be in the market for this. Sum it up for me, SV, you're our resident SotS expert. What elevates this above the other 4X space empire games out there, and are the expandsions really worth it?
Are you trying to make me rewrite the reviews?!
You'll just have to reread the existing ones and wait for the next. And expansions are VERY worth it. ANY is optional though, it doesn't bring huge gameplay changes. It does bring a ****load of ship sections and new techs. In my latest game I haven't even tackled new options.
I'll have to wait for the comp to return from servicing - the battery wasn't charging.
Previous expansions all brought HUGE gameplay changes, all for the better. Original SotS was a bit scarce but with even BoB alone it became a great game.

So has Martin dropped many hints on their forums then SV?
Would definitely be something good to put in our newsletter depending on how soon you were thinking of doing it?
There have been many SotS2 hints. Definitely worth digging out and gathering in a sort of a Q&A. Perhaps it will even come before the review (I can do some digging at work, too
). Otherwise I really don't care whether this is a news post or newsletter. Whatever will seem more fitting to you people at the time.
Thanks for the new home!
