If they released a second Alpha Centauri, I wouldn't go and set limits on how I'd pay for it.

I would love an Alpha Centauri remake, especially if they keep the factions and the "design your own units" system.

The problem with SMAC2 is that the SMAC license is owned and split between three different companies, including EA and, if I recall correctly, one that is defunct.

It's going to be long, long time, I'm afraid - a Spiritual Successor wouldn't be too bad I guess.

I'll add it to the Shelf of Games that Should Exist, but Don't:

Did I miss any?

This looks awesome. I doubt I'll be able to play it though- my laptop runs Civ IV on below minimum requirements somehow.

@Moogi: Same here. As it is, BTS's WWII scenarios are borderline unplayable, they're so slow.

Anyone who assigns themselves loads of character tropes is someone to be worried about.

Oda Frackin' Nobunaga - I <3 it! That guy was a dictatorial badass who didn't take nothing from nobody. For starters, he got shot in the neck with an arrow and didn't die, so from that point on people assumed that he actually was a demon disguised as a human. I'll just say that there's a reason he plays the badass villain in oh so many videogames and ninja anime.

Ah.

Still prefer the Mali empire, though.

Another thing that was badass about Oda Nobunaga? For the first twenty years or so of his life, he acted like a complete idiot - doing crazy stuff like playing with the peasant children as the son of a samurai, smashing his father's funeral altar, getting drunk and acting lewd, that sort of thing, so much so that they started to call him Owari no Ōutsuke, "The Fool of Owari". It turns out that this was all an act, and upon his father's death Nobunaga proceeded to destroy any and all rivals to his father's lands, not through strength of arms, but through treachery, deception, and just plain outsmarting his enemies. People were shocked, they were appalled, and they were taken completely by surprise that the Fool of Owari was actually one of the best strategists ever born in Japan, who would manage to reunite the nation of Japan after two hundred years of all-out internecine warfare. In short, Nobunaga was the definition of Obfuscating Stupidity, which makes him totally BadAss in my book.
