Well gents, It's not so much what I'm playing but rather my to do list. Mez has eloquently convinced me to try Star-base Orion while vmxa and Ashbery76 combined have convinced me to try SotS which has been sitting in my library (untried) for about two years. Unfortunately, I've been a bit under the weather of late and it has killed my drive and ability to concentrate for extended periods of time, but once I feel like my old self I will give them both a go. I did dig up many reviews on both games and I still see a lot I won't care for in SotS,,, but The endorsement you fine gents have given the combat (and AI in that respect) have me hopeful that it will present a challenge. That alone interests me enough to give it a go. Starbase Orion on the other hand sounds very MoO2 like and quite deep for a tablet game. Now I just need to borrow one to try it as I never bothered with such devices, still it actually has me quite intrigued and I want to take it for a ride as well.
