At first I read the title as "stone's hard", and that is not quite right.

Pervert.

 

Anyway, man, this looks cool but, it being turn based kills it for me. I'll try it out but, this sucks, I wish turn based games could just die away already.

why?... there are really good turn based games... like "Battle Brothers" or Syd Meyer "Colonization", etc... this are games that make you think more what to do next and not just fast reflex skills... sometimes i preffer this kind of games, sometimes not...

Pausable real-time is good too.

I don't know, I just played Phoenix Point, and the game has this really great limb system, but the melee enemies kept moving like four times in one turn, and it just frustrated me to no end, to see my tired dudes, just stand around and get absolutely destroyed, just because they couldn't be bothered to just shoot them.

 

I feel like turn based games just feel really artificial, and all the waiting around, makes them really tedious for me to play. I would've loved Phoenix Point, if it was a run and gun, action, XCOM styled game, but instead it's just XCOM but a thousand times more tedious.

 

To me the game is pretty much ruined. It could've been really fun as hell, if they didn't slap turn based combat on it.

 

The way the game is balanced, screams for it to be in real time, honestly. Honest to god a shame, I really wish it was a normal RTS styled game, it would've blown XCOM out of the water, and instead of the mild reviews it's getting now, I think it would've found it's niche.

 

For me, that's a huge missed opportunity.

Exactly... games like "Company of Heroes" or "Homeworld 2" (games that I like) can benefit a lot if they have that option of "pause and give orders"...

EDIT: wait... I remember now that "Homeworld 2" have that option...

Agreed, one of my favorite games is Alpha Centauri and it wouldn't be the same if you had to build up to zerg rush your opponents base instead of methodically planning out your empire. You could even play SMAC by email.

 

In an ideal golden age of video games there would be a game for everyone, including those of us that like slow turn-based strategy.
