New 4x: Jon Shafer's At the Gates

Post by Cpt. Awesome » Thu Jan 24, 2019 1:21 am

Just curious if anyone is playing At the Gates.

I'm tempted to pick it up, but reluctant because my favorite "X"s are explore, expand and exterminate. This game seems to be mostly exploit.

Any opinions or thoughts?

The reviews I've read put this game firmly in 'don't bother' territory.
Zed's TARs (sample):
Fractious Allies -- Hiver vs. Hiver, with allies
Who Let The Bugs Out -- Hiver vs. Tarka and Zuul
Tarka Ascendant -- Tarka vs. Hiver and Zuul

Cute...

Don't worry Mecron, I bought all your games already. :toast:

Fair enough Zed. Watching some gameplay is kinda giving the same vibe.
