Man, I can't believe the reaction to the movie Avengers. I mean, people actually seemed to like it! How could anybody like watching egotistical, amateur maniacs kill things for hours! And then joke about it and prod others into fighting them! Everyone must be crazy! Now, mind you I haven't seen the movie, but everyone seems to say it's "fun" and "funny", but how can you like a movie where there are overpowered characters killing things! And their so much more powerful than everyone else, it's like their killing children. All of these "critics" and "people" like this movie about killing babies! I just don't under...wait, we're talking about a video game here? It's ruining the children! Just like that movie Avenger's I heard about.
@Funkydupe: This is from what I've heard. There are overall objectives, and the game has specific story moments, including story missions when you reach certain milestones. The game itself is extremely open, you can build you base how you want, you can prioritize research how you want to the detriment of other things, you can choose what battles you want to fight and which nations to help. I'd imagine something like a story beat when you get powerful enough that reveals a new enemy, or something to help tutorialize when you first get psi powers, something like that.
Yeah, for 400 pts on August 19th, the game is getting online multiplayer. It's the one thing the game was really missing, but it might be too late. In either case, it's really really weird that this is coming out now, way after the game launched.
