    God, it looks as bad as I've expected it to be. Looks like a cheap copy of Age of Mythology that wants to be They are Billions. Also, mandatory burning stone walls, yay. Guess I'll pirate it.

    It's always so cringy when Devs are in full PR mode.

    So you will pirate it? I guess you like playing with bad games. Or, you are just being edgy about the game looking bad and actually you like what you see.

    I'm generally not a fan of what I see, but I want to see how it actually plays. I know it's hard to believe, but I've been wrong in my life before and some first impressions don't last.

    Absolutely.
    I always prefer devs that are way more calm and realistic about their game, not those that go into overdrive excitement mode.

    Of course, I generally prefer the first type of people over the latter.

    I think it looks dope and as cool of a blend as I thought when I first heard of it. A clear rip off of 'Billions for sure, but hopefully an improvement on the formula. Looks sorta like 'Billions and Spellforce/Majesty put together.

    Out now:





    With Deluxe Edition that includes King version of Conan as a hero unit.

    https://steamcommunity.com/games/989690/announcements/detail/1625149528382065607

    Will be interesting to see if this, with popular IP, fancier graphics, and cross-promotion with other Funcom games, will sell better than They Are Billions.

    Early indications: not good. Mixed reviews (negative reviews pointing out bugs, performance, lack of polish, shallow content, no campaign, being a "rip-off". Some maybe are from misaligned expectations regarding Petroglyph and Conan IP, I guess.); Little over a thousand peak players, lower than TAB's launch day's and today's peak.

    Nice review, bringing to light some big WTFs. Including day-1 DLC for another character. For 11$!!!! Yup. Certainly a no-buy due to that for me, especially considering there are only two other characters.
    I don't mind cosmetic day-1 DLCs or minor stuff, but just taking 1/3 characters out to sell them for half the price of the main game... ???


    Edit: Aaand the video was removed and reuploaded because he used the word "spear chuckers", which, apparently, is racist :lol: (wtf?!)
    Merlkir Now you can watch it!

    Petroglyph hasn't made a good game since Universe at War.

    Fingers crossed they won't fuck up the C&C remasters at least. I mean, how hard can it be haha?

    Funny, Universe at War was probably the last RTS I liked, too.
