View Full Version : Anybody here getting excited about Moo3?

24-08-2002, 20:57:55
I'm an avid Moo/Moo2 player, so I've been following this one for some time now. Since they seem to be shooting for an x-mas release, I'm tentatively getting my hopes up for another installment of my favourite 4x in space. Anybody else looking forward to that?

Having played MOO2, I'm curious about what we'll see in the next game. I hope it'll be good, and have more in the way of graphics than SE4.

It's been delayed until 2003.

And yeah, I am. Except that it never pays to get excited about a game before it's released, especially after C&C2 and the like.

It's rather the last chance for us 4x addicts. After the abortion that was Civ3, I hope QS comes through for us here, or I will have to play RPGs for the rest of eternity.

Or at least 'till MoM2 comes out, whichever comes first.

It will be shite, like CivIII

I still hold high hopes for it, but have stopped looking forward to it. Too many delays and backpedals by the staff. With S!SG having apparently died a lonely death, the future does not look good for space TBS.

I've lowered my expectations appropriately. Sounded like they were gutting most of the innovation right out of the game and reverting to Moo2.5

Darkstar hasn't posted in this one yet?

30 page rants take time to write you know.

We had that before. I'll bumpit

Warlords4 then MOO3

What's to rant on? The fact that they've gutted most of their work, never came close to their full design, and are madly working on getting something done?

I'm waiting. I'm hoping beyond hope that MoO3 will be great. Or a good, graphics/modernization update of MoO1. MoO2 was ok, but... well, it tossed away a lot of the balances that were what made MoO1 so fun.

We could always make our own. The graphics would be shit, and so would the Artificial Idiot, but at least we could make up for it with feature songs from the Unholy and of course, the Hardman song. Any other suggestions? :D

How about the insertion of every SciFi and gaming cliche in existance, up to and including "All your base are belong to us" as the declaration of war?

How about we just have the first translations of anything between races as being: all our base belong to you.

Oh, that's a given.

Some not too inspiring news about Moo3 here:

HUmm... so, Civ3 expansion is using the rest of SMAC code, and MoO3 is having star roads and sailing ships. Whee...
