All Stardock games now need Steam to run.

Hi,

Note that $1 for GC2 is a better deal than free GC1.

Anyway,

Ken

Yep, but wait, for $15 you also unlock GC3, that's how they lure customers. :lol:
But that game isn't my style anyway. I opted for Endless Space on Steam now, hope it's worth that buck. Funny they run these deals same time. :roll:

Agreed. Nothing against the first GalCiv game, just that the second one is more replayable by several ordered of magnitude.

gc3 is similar enough to gc2 that you can save your $14! Also less stable, from what I hear. And the AI isn't better.

Yup. You can play as any of the factions. You can design your own ships. Planetary management is a lot more interesting. GC2 is a pure upgrade.

They finally decided to copy some other decent games, which is good. I don't think I remember a dev with such poor game design skills... their marketing skills however more than compensate for that ;) They can do a complete 180 and still "look good".
It's kind of a mess really though, all the expansion/DLC fuss. But it's kind of their thing.
Let's see in how many ways they can screw up the "new" game :D
