From: Distant Worlds
Firstly, thanks for the heads up with regard to Endless Space. Never heard of it before, will surely play it as soon as it gets properly released. I don't get much free time to surf the net for some data about the games.
Indeed, I most definitely think that these are very interesting times for 4x genre as it seems, in my humble opinion, of course, that true space strategy gaming is being revisited once again. Endless Space looks neat. Star Ruler is a very, very, good game, especially with the latest patching and the uber Galactic Armory mod. We all know Distant worlds and any new expansions/patches coming from the developers are only going to make it even more attractive.
I bought Skyrim, invested over 50 hours on it without completing it. Purchased Legends, gave up on Skyrim and started playing Legends. Purchased ME3, played it... had the misfortune to complete it and see what was meant to be 'the end'. Went back to continue Skyrim... bought Star Ruler, stopped playing Skyrim and currently enjoying Star Ruler. I will eventually complete Skyrim... if only I can remember what it was all about.
