bryanhbell -> Did you buy DW during the 33% off sale? (8/26/2012 1:31:05 AM)

I've been a Civilization player for years and decided I'd like to try a 4x space game. I've tried GalCiv2, but it seemed a bit dated and is no longer being developed. I've been looking at the various games in this genre and seeing that the genre seems to be lacking a modern game with adequate depth (that isn't also plagued with bugs). Distant Worlds seemed to fit the bill, but that price! With the 33% off sale, I decided to make a move and bought it with the expansions on Thursday.

Did you just buy Distant Worlds for the first time because of the 33% off sale? If so, sound off here!

I did. Veloxi was praising DW on a couple of boards, but the $90+ price tag turned EVERYONE off. Once the sale started, though, I can personally think of at least 5 or 6 people who picked it up, including myself. Matrix is overpriced (which is why I've only picked up Star shatter and CAW from them over the years) and hopefully the new purchases of DW at the lower price point makes them reconsider.

As for DW itself, good lord is this the last game my ADD needs. Thanks, Brian ;)

Personally, I think the core game should now be at a lower price full stop, same with the first expansion
This will encourage many more people to play the game

Always happy to spread the spacey game love, my friend. Enjoy!! :)

Yes

And it was well worth it.

Just got it myself thanks to reddit, and people recommending the game on sale.

Beyond that Star Rule, Gal Civ 2, endless space 2, sword of the stars were all removed after playing for four hours of distant worlds.

Amazing

Ahh, welcome new people! It is good to see new faces... well avatars popping up here in the forum [sm=happy0005.gif]




Panpiper -> RE: Did you buy DW during the 33% off sale? (8/27/2012 8:58:18 PM)

I bought it a couple of days 'before' the sale. Argh!




Anthropoid -> RE: Did you buy DW during the 33% off sale? (8/28/2012 2:57:41 AM)

Welcome new space cadets! [:D]




clifford1944 -> RE: Did you buy DW during the 33% off sale? (8/28/2012 4:10:39 AM)

Looks like this Thursday I'll be getting it. The boxed edition. I'm hoping for a lot of planets to explore.




omphaloskepsis -> RE: Did you buy DW during the 33% off sale? (8/28/2012 4:20:49 AM)

I did, but it was by accident. I just happened to read the glowing spacesector review a few days ago. I might have paid full price. Don't know for sure because I've never paid more than $60 for a game before, but I've been craving a good space strategy game.

If it's close to as good as that review, it's probably worth $90.




bryanhbell -> RE: Did you buy DW during the 33% off sale? (8/28/2012 5:05:38 AM)

The Space Sector reviews were the major impetus for me purchasing the game as well.




Warspite3 -> RE: Did you buy DW during the 33% off sale? (8/28/2012 6:04:35 AM)

You all who just bought the game might want to go on youtube and checkout this guys videos, I think they are really well done. In fact just after I bought DW in the beginning I had a difficult time with it's learning curve until I watched a couple of these then it all made a lot more sense... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8WNB5YqVCtE&feature=plcp




Robik -> RE: Did you buy DW during the 33% off sale? (8/28/2012 11:38:09 AM)

I did.

I waited for sale, becouse i could not justify silly high price + 20% VAT on top of it.




oogs -> RE: Did you buy DW during the 33% off sale? (8/28/2012 3:05:21 PM)

I bought it because of a "Let's Play" I saw, however the sale did make it easier. I don't know if I would have bought it at $90.




Voknaar -> RE: Did you buy DW during the 33% off sale? (8/28/2012 3:20:13 PM)

I fell in love with the game after watching some gameplay on youtube. I've wanted Distant Worlds for a good month or two now. The sale is what stopped my cyber-lazyness and got me to go through with getting it done. But now it's time to go to lurker mode and read every forum thread. Because I've no idea of what I'm doing in this game...

That I did---there was no way I was going to purchase all three games as a bundle for $90 where the main game is still priced the same as 2.5yrs ago when released. Sheesh! [X(]SMH Thankful to vigilant, friendly members of the "space-game" genre community--Veloxi et al, I would have missed out on this NEEDED sale. I sure hope Matrix hears this yet again that the positive response to this sale is huge. As niche as this may be, there's lots more of us out there fans of the 4x who are looking for reasonable pricing to great games. And so far, I love DW--the series.

Thanks to all for the warm welcome from the main DW forum community---you veterans rock! And to Matrix, THANK YOU for the sale! But PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, seriously consider cancelling the sale and making the pricing for the complete DW series at the $60 mark permanent! I think you wont regret it. [;)]

The spacesector review and the 33% sale hooked me. And thank goodness, DW is by far and away the BEST space 4x game I have played, period. And I say this as a big MOO2 fan who still has MOO2 installed.

I am excited that the development is still so active. Does anyone know if more expansions are planned? Seems like there are still plenty of U/I enhancements and features that could be added. If this game had the tactical formations, visual ship customization with arcs of fire and shield facings, and tiled planetary surfaces similar to what the Stardrive beta is showing...I might fall into this game and never emerge ;)

A third expansion is due in the coming months, supposedly some news next month. [:)]




Isegrimm -> RE: Did you buy DW during the 33% off sale? (8/30/2012 2:15:55 PM)

I purchased it yesterday. [:)] And resistance is futile ... [:D] I'm addicted and assimilated in Legends. We are Legends.




StarLab -> RE: Did you buy DW during the 33% off sale? (8/30/2012 3:15:27 PM)

Yup! Bought mine 2 hours ago... Oh... wait... no! That was 2 DAYS ago... No wonder I'm hungry! lol

This IS NOT a game... it's Time Manipulation Software! [&o]

Seriously though... I would have paid full price! No problem! The sale was just a case of good timing. [:)]
