Hi Guys & Gals

Simple question really.

Are you gonna buy DW Legends at release?

I will buy the Digital Download version.

The info I have is that you need Distant Worlds plus Return of the Shakturi to install Legends on top.

I hear Distant Worlds may be packaged with ROTS for the new buyers. Perhaps Matrix can elaborate.

Also do the Beta Testers of Legends get a free game? I presume they do!

I think the beta team is already on the job, too late to join them now

Buy? Oh yes, very much so, unless I happen to find a complete horror story from a reliable source right after release. Approximately during the time it takes me to type my credit card number.

Digital? Of course, I don't want more physical stuff than necessary in my life.

Bug hunting? Leave the poor Sluken alone! Racists really...

I will get it, but maybe not install it until my AAR in the Shakturi timeline got a decent end. Since it is made to resemble the idea of an enterprise like ship it will be able to end anytime though.

Both digital and physical copy for me. Call me Mr Materialistic!

I just see it as a way of showing my support for the work Elliot and co are doing.

I am not a 4X junkie at all. I think I maybe have bought something GalCiv once, but not played it much. I love DW, though.

I have enjoyed Europa Universalis, and played the original the most. I think DW is in many ways similar to this one. The slow, relaxed, real time setup.

Currently I want to play Legends while waiting for the Old Republic...

But....don't you get a cool sensation when you press the "End Turn" button?

The Old Republic....kinda feels like our Republic doesn't it. "Have we not heard the chimes at midnight..." "Have we not heard the knell which summons thee to heaven or to....hell".

Gosh! Whew I got heavy there for a moment....this is too much for a Saturday morning! I knew I shouldn't have listened to winds of change so early.

Uh shortly? You're kidding right?

I'll be on to get it the moment it is released if I'm not at work.

As Palpatine put it: "Immediately!"
Both digital and physical. I like to browse my physical collections of games and movies, and I want to support Codeforce and Matrix.

I think they feared your skills would delay the release
Which would be good but this time I want it as fast as possible

C'mon Data, really.........haven't you seen the cost of 100 pounds of Chips Ahoy on the
Galactic Market lately? Not to mention the shipping costs.
It would be worse than trying to secure Igard's Romulan Ale!

If I get a digital copy (i never buy them), will I be able to redownload it for unlimited time, or is there a time limit?

Just in case my PC crashes or something like that.

For matrix I think the download link expires, but you get a new one if you contact support.

If you buy a game over a network like Steam, the game is tied to your account. As long as steam don't go belly up it should be safe. At least as long as you are able to recover your username, password, security question, credit card... some of that stuff..

As for PC crash. If a PC crashes, I doubt DW is the only thing to worry about. Get a backup. Or two. I have a lazy backup method in storing stuff on a NAS running Raid 1. Mixed with DW on two different computers, and the possibility for a new download link, I feel somewhat safe. At least compared to having the game on a single computer, and on a DVD that is just waiting to be scratched

IIRC Matrix will let you re-download as needed.

Still I like having both the digital for immediate and the physical in case of disaster.

I bought RotS when it first came out (about 1 year ago) and a couple of days ago I visited the members area of the matrix website.  I accidently requested a new download link somehow because shortly afterwards I received an email with a download link for RotS, not sure what I did, but this shows how easy it is to redownload your game if you have a HD failure or something, I did it by accident a year after buying!

I will wait a bit myself.

If it's mostly bug-free and the changes are of the sorts that I'm expecting, I'll definitely buy it.

Exactly as the MD said.

By the way is there a gifting option on purchase? Might be roping in a relative for Xmas.

If you are to give it away and use the digital download you could buy and download all install files. Store the product keys in a text file, and add them all to a cheap (or expensive) memory stick and give that one away.
