I've been playing past four days Sins of a Solar Empire. It's a decent game for an RTS. I really dislike the lack of depth though. It has three races but they play almost exactly the same and their ships are nearly identical save looks and special abilities. The game has managed to keep me entertained for a while. Not worth the full price tag though, but get it if you find it from a bargain bin.
- Nexus: The Jupiter Incident
Oh man, this game is golden. It's almost sad how overlooked this game has been. I love it to bits and played through it several times. Unfortunately it seems like there is almost zero change for it to receive a sequel due to poor sales.
I wish there were more games like this, besides of Homeworld series.
Here is a tech demo by Nexus devs of what Nexus 2 would have been like: http://sargoth.spymac.com/space_techdemo_HD.rar
HomePlanet: Playing With Fire
How is HomePlanet, is it any good?
