@beige Did you read Pete and Alex’s spacefireside chat on Endless Space a few weeks ago? The lack of personality was one of their major criticisms. Kind of bummed to hear reports about that, although I liked the hell out of Sins of a Solar Empire and there wasn’t a whole lot of personality in that either (and the tech tree was also “WTF wheeeee”). Basically, if they get SPACE! right, and the spectacle of space battles to my liking, I’ll be fine. Sounds like they did.
