Brian’s jam is space games, and mine is party based rpgs. I’ve played most of them so i thought i would create a thread just in case anyone was interested, and where those interested could ask about past titles if worth getting, and discuss hidden gems this genre (or I can talk to myself)
I also thought my posts on the indie titles ive played that are not talked about as much and whether i enjoyed them or not, and why. If you have one you want thoughts on and I havent mentioned, please tell me. ALWAYS wanting to find a hidden gem!
I really wanted to like this game, it had XCOM elements and base building but it ultimately did not resonate with me for a few reasons
No choosing skills for your team or even choosing their class so while they level up no interesting choices building them up
The base building is static, the only question is what can you afford to build and thats fairly linear
The research is also static, at least for the first 10 hours, so again no interesting choices
The only choice you really get is the tactical battles and they have tricks like high cover and reinforcements and other twists that make them more puzzles than real strategy tests. In short, not xcom just the veneer of it.
Lots of crashes to desktop, also drained my endurance for this game, after only 10 hours I gave up
