    I'm so into stellaris, very hard to dig into other space games that fall short.

    As good would be enough. We don't need every iteration of a gaming genre to be markedly better, but I have no idea about this game.

    If i was going to play Sterllaris can I get the base game only and see if I like it or is it one of those 4x games that expansions add to the experience.

    Ah yes, yet another "spiritual successor to MoO2", how many is it now?

    Funny how after almost 30 years, these attempts don't come even close to the true Master. And when I say funny, I mean sad, of course.

    The real Spiritual successor to MoO2 is  Stars in Shadow IMO ...  Which is on sale btw thru the Space Exploration Sale this weekend ...

    It doesn't matter how many. No one will care when somebody gets it right, and the chance of that happening is zero if nobody tries.

    As the description says, it's turn based. That makes it better than a RTS.

    you probably can just get the base game version 1.0, but the gameplay will be totally different than after 2-3 expansion, it change the game mechanic into a completely brand new game, some people stick to the old version.

    I'm of the opposite side of that spectrum. I prefer RTS over turn-based, but both can be fine approaches as MoO2 is a classic. Yeah, Stellaris, can become such a blackhole of missing time while having fun.

    Well RTS is less strategy because the time doesn't allow much thinking but instead faster response much like a ARPG versus a mmorpg.
    Personally i prefer the slower paced design,with active and reactive decisions and more than once or twice.
    The 4x design was one that really intrigued me for some time,i enjoyed but soon i realized they all had a few simple gimmicks and once you understood it the game and strategy became much less interesting.Basically i just felt like you either were going to win or you were not,not much room for in between,like i should lose but i might be able to do something to win.
    IMO MOST games including mmorpg's Arpg's whatever could all be played in automated mode,the outcome is usually known before it even starts.That was a major factor to why i loved FFXI,i could control combat even to the point i could make a safe exit if need be,i was in control and not computer code.
    With this game the world looks fake,like a bunch of modules,similar to the original RTS games like Command n Conquer for example.When i play games that involve worlds,i want them to look real,i want  to feel immersed within the world and why i enjoy playing Atlas,it just feels very real.

    Visual gaming needs to enforce the visual aspect,otherwise it is more like a mud where you could just paste text on the screen telling me the outcomes and what is going on. In reality,4x and MOST games on the market are simply trying to remain within a budget,a low end budget and this is the best way they can deliver their game,o me it really is not good enough.

    Cool I will pick up the console version. I know I could get it for PC but that will be a game my wife likes to play to and she can't use a keyboard and mouse to well.

    The game looks nice. It's hard to tell anything beyond that until I see some play and read feedback. On paper is sounds fairly robust with the ability to create your own race and modify a lot of the game conditions. It's impossible to say now how well that translates into game play.

    There is no retail price disclosed yet on the Steam page. Stellaris is overrated and overpriced in my opinion. Stars in Shadow is a lot of game for a very reasonable price compared to most 4X strategy games. If this studio tries to pull off a Paradox and milk the game with a million DLCs then I'll pass no matter how "good" it's supposed to be.

    I bought the base Stellaris (through humble monthly) and never bought any expansions and had a blast with about 250 hours of playtime. Well worth it.

    The problem with Stellaris is that Paradox milks your wallet to death with their piddly DLC.  I don't mind paying for DLC with decent content, but you can put all Stellaris's DLC in one package and it does not make up one normal DLC from most other developers.   I avoid anything made by Paradox for exactly that reason.
