check the media page. Yeh yeh silly comparison. But, real time, space, exploring, expanding etc, NOVus isn't just an RTS, it's kind of a 4x. It's more 4x than simple rts. You build up your own planets, design your own ships, explore nearby worlds, colonize.
Only thing your opponents are now other players, in a persistent online universe. So imagine diplomacy with a russian player!
(horrors of eve alliance warfare come to mind in terms of them russians, nasty evil people!)
so many cool space games on the radar, we complained not enough 1 year ago and now?
Star citizen i mean the total complete package, fps combat, in your ship, walking around, your crew, all in real time and seamless...jump out your ship hatch the game keeps going....jet pack to another ship, or an asteroid and walk around on it...awesome space combat, capital ships, fighter craft dogfighting... awesome graphics....cool storyline if you like that, playing with friends, friends inside your ship. Eject em from an airlock if they piss you off :)
Elite: seamless procedural exploration sandbox, graphics look good, gameplay looking nice from the previews so far...
NOVUS: awesome looking, kind of reminds of me of a cross between DW, starcraft and Eve. Persistent, real time, awesomeness in space.
Limit Theory: Looks promising but not sure what it can do that the rest above cannot...
ooo, good bye professional life, goodbye wife....me and my son gaming in space forever!
any ideas how to get him hooked on space games? He's seven and loves minecraft. He needs some visceral action?
