Real time strategy game out this month, but a free version comes out tomorrow. Might be something Wags likes because of his Civ obsession

I feel like these overhead tabletop-type games I would rather just play on the desktop rather than VR. I'd rather spend time in VR playing more VR-specific games. Plus I think I've quenched my RTS craving for another year or so.

Played the free demo and it was really cool! Comes out tomorrow and is currently at a discount price of $25. I think the full price will be $40

Does this game need to be in VR? Absolutely not. Is it one of the cooler uses of VR that I've seen? Totally. Claims 6+ hours of campaign and online options. I doubt I would play online, I have too many memories of being dominated on Red Alert online. I think I will pull the trigger on this one...

I ordered after reading this article. I think I will enjoy it, if not I can use the new-ish Oculus refund system. This will be a low energy VR game that still uses touch.

Do the demo! Only 1gb download and like 30 mins to play both levels. I think 1v1 or coop would be a lot of fun with a friend, but not a stranger.

Like I said, it's more brain power than physical so it will be a nice change of pace.

Peer pressure works. Wags bought this before even trying the demo.

I keep checking the store page for this game to see if it's out and the price. I need validation that I got a good deal!

The full game required me to play through the first 2 levels, even though I beat them in the Arena free version. Instead of doing those again (I'll make Travis play through this weekend) I did a 1v1 match. I got smoked, but the guy was really helpful and game me some good tips. It's pretty cool how you can casually talk to someone you are playing against in a RTS vs having to type chat back in the day.

Travis has been playing this all weekend. He will probably finish the campaign. He switched to a chair pretty quickly.
