I wanna play a 4X real time or turn-based strategy, like this one, with space theme.
This game is under my sights amongst others! Any fine proposals?

Yes, the most notable one is Lost Empire: Immortals.


It's an old (I think 2007) game with decent graphics but not-so-smart AI and some crashing bugs that were never fixed since the company went bankrupt or something, but I autosave every 5 minutes when I play so I am fine :P check it out if you want

That would be great if true, love me some good looking turn based interplanetary warfare but Is there a source for that? i ask becuase the first 2 games were made purposely with low spec computers in mind, its could be the same with this one. I still hope not tho.

according to this which I releise is in no way official source, the game will be 64 bit exclucive because of the ram requirments.
also, even it they design with low spec computers in mind, the previous game in the series had requirements that reflected the current gen low end at their time.

I don't know where does the predicted requirement come from, but i think the game requirement will be higher than expected.
