Updating space empires with linux
This seems odd considering how far along the game was in the development pipline. One that will allow me to explore new worlds, mine planets for resources when needed, interact with other civilizations and fight the good fight! No way does Starcraft 1 fit the mold, and SC2 problably wont either.Maybe that is the reason for the lack of advertising... I hear great things about Starcraft I and that Starcraft II is in the works.... Great games, but they lack the depth I think youre looking for since there is in no way "exploration" in the game. If you are then you get three good options: Darkstar One, Independence War 2, and X3: Reunion.
The developers must be in another country as well; I hope they correct the translations by the time they publish the game. The translation problems in SR2 make getting really into the story/plot line a pain sometimes.looks promising too and seems to be fairly similar to the SR2 formula.However, I looked at the officicial website and the grammar is awful...Its really cool and the hours will fly by like minutes!also, "sins of a solar empire" looks pretty promising as well.[QUOTE="eitremn"]i just looked up "space force: rogue universe." this game looks great, why isn't this being advertised more. and it's close to relase and there isn't any info on it really? I hear great things about Starcraft I and that Starcraft II is in the works.... You can be a do-gooder ranger, a mercenary, a pirate, a trader or any combination of these.
One that will allow me to explore new worlds, mine planets for resources when needed, interact with other civilizations and fight the good fight! You pick a race, a class and then you are off in a mostly non-linear universe where almost anything goes.
Darkstar One is easy to get into and immediately satisfying, though its gameplay isnt as deep as the others, while X3 is extremely complex yet is insanely deep..can own factories, fleets of spaceships, and pilot the weakest transport to the largest battleship.
I-War 2 lies somewhere in between, but its my personal favorite because youre space pirate and its got a great story.
I think the game would have been allot smoother and even funnier if they paid some American college kids a few bucks to do the translations correctly.
SR2 is totally open ended except for a final series of missions to fight against AI invaders whenever you feel compelled to have your character do so.
If you want other space games, I recommend Galactic Civilizations 2.
