Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeehhhhh that is a huge stretch.
I remember ordering a M7M to jump in in Albion Prelude and when it arrived I commanded it to throw some torpedo salvos and absolutely destroy every Xenon in the area, while I was flying something else. It was fantastically awesome. I assume the same is possible in X4’s late game.
Well, I think Avorion comes closer than most other games, as it got some fleet command and stuff going on, but the sheer immersion of CC 2 is unparalelled. I find that you have to go for the big ship feel when you play these games, and Battlecruiser AD felt like moving a fighter.
What about BattleGroup VR? I haven’t played it yet, but it looks superficially similar.
Sorrrrrrrt of? It’s not really a carrier game, more like you’re in command of other battleships in a fleet game.
I stumbled upon this, purchased/download it, and thought:
@BrianRubin needs this. Seriously.
Oh man sorry, I don’t/can’t do horror.
No, seriously. It’s not Eldrich horror - it’s Alien/Aliens/Event Horizon/Dead Space, with probably one of the best rules layouts and designs I’m seen since I drew chits for redbox D&D back in the day.
Spend $5 for the PDF (pay what you want) and grab it.
Hmmm, okay you sold me.
Space Haven still in EA, got a pretty big update:
I fear that my memory is conflating multiple games together, but I’m trying to recall a spacey type game that had a core mechanic that was based around shooting bits off enemies in a cubey/voxely manner.
I’m my head I’m seeing something like Panzer Dragoon meets Space Engineers meets ikaruga.
My brain may we be just making this up, but does anyone recall a game like this that I might be thinking of??
So was this a first-person game? Like Empyrion and Starship EVO?
This is the challenge. I’m not convinced that it’s a game that I’ve actually played, but it’s X-wing like space / Atmos combat that is the overriding impression (thus the Panzer Dragoon feeling).
It may well be that I’ve just seen some screenshots and made up the actual gameplay in my head…
I don’t think that it’s anything recent…
Description reminds me of TerraTech but it’s not a spacegame.
I know what you mean, but that’s a very much ground based game.
(My ex housemate works at Payload 😁)
Hey @BrianRubin do you know anything about this?
Looks really promising, and should release by the end of the year apparently.
Yeah I’m aware of it, but as it’s multiplayer only I’ve not been in a huge rush to try it. Maybe when it hits 1.0 I’ll give it a whirl.
Fair enough. I’ll probably end up getting it sooner rather than later.
If you do please report back. I just have a natural aversion to multiplayer-only games.
But will it be better than Stars!? :)
