    It's a bit unfortunate that there's not as much exploration and interaction, since all these maps are handcrafted. The level of interaction can even be as little as lore exposition or NPCs commenting as you click around map objects.

    Just battle-to-battle is fine, a lot of indie games are like that, but if the game is just battles, then those battles have to be really good. Really hoping to hear some impressions of the tactics from midgame, since early game tactics appears to be purely positioning-based.

    This game is a librul piece of shit and should be roasted as such.

    So there's 4 alignment directions to go for - Autocracy-Bureaucracy axis and Humanism-Independence one. Ok, I play the hardass Autocratic captain and, when the first mission (and companion) choice arrives, I go to Jupiter to help out my russian bros crush some puny librul-loving rebellion. And, since it was a companion mission, I expected to get a stone cold killer russian merc as a side kick.

    But, ofc, no fun allowed with the libruls. No russians to. The denizens of the station (which I'm supposed to be working for) are showcased as the caricature-ish xenophobic slavers, rushing to kill me without even listening to my arguments. Allahu akbaring themselves in the process - because, you know, it's such a russian thing, yeah. Whether I'm wanting it or not, I'm forced to support rebels - roleplaying, lol. Choices, lol. And instead of glorious russian merc, I'm stuck with some afro-american swindler. Fuck yeah.

    Add to this that in the previous dialogue (unrelated, just happened before this mission) there was a married couple mentioned and of course it was lesbian. Who would've guessed.

    I suppose that the majority of other C&C in this game goes the same way and so it's mostly biowarian "have 4 reply variants which all mean one and the same thing" style of a roleplay.

    Oh, and it's very easy to explain the relentless whining about game difficulty on the steam forums - the balance is shit. Ranged is utter trash and sure, it'll make the game almost impossible for ya. Melee is lolbroken, however, and it just rapes everything. Muh combat design, lol.

    Played the end of the first mission, failed and could only restart the whole mission. I think they are not lying, when they write that failure IS an option. The A.I. is not perfect, but you shouldn't underestimate it or the skills of your enemies. This is still interesting, but I will wait until they have the engine under control.

    And I would really like to change the face of the maincharacter. This is the most generic guy-face ever. Where are the beards? Real men wear real beards!

    So you have to finish fights within the turn limits or you can't progress at all? It's not just a penalty?

    No, most fights just have a penalty, but this time (endboss-fight) I have a turnlimit and either I win or fail, but the game keeps going. This is an interesting spin on "your choices have consequences."

    And I can only restart the mission two times so far. I haven't tried out that feature completely, but I guess it just informs what I wrote above.

    It's weird this should be one of these games perfect for me but something feels really off watching these videos, but I can't even put it in words
