Oh man Gal Civ 2 was one of the few games that just confused me like crazy. I know there is an amazing game underneath, but I just couldn't get my head round it. I would so be up for another game if they made it a bit more friendly.

It seems that not only are they aiming for a super complex AI within the game, but you can also connect to their cloud servers which lets the AI download additional strategies based off uploaded analysis of previous player's games. So it's essentially going to be a learning AI.

That sounds both fantastic and terrifying.

Detest early access but sorely tempted.

I so want to play that, but I fear it will make my head hurt.

I like my 4Xs but I always felt GalCiv II was a bit underwhelming. Most of the universe is uncolonizable and you end up in these influence wars that go on forever...

Maybe I'm just playing it wrong though.

You set the percentage of inhabitable planets when you start a game.

Even on abundant (I think, that might be Endless Space though) the Universe always seem so sparse and empty. Endless space is my current favourite 4X.

Maybe I should do more GalCiv...
