Those screenshots of Galactic Civilizations remind me quite a bit of the game Pax Imperia 2 (which was also good IG2, MOO type game IMO)

All I can bring up on MoO3 is that it's web site is still being updated, but near as I can tell they are still compiling exactly what it is they want the game to be. It's pretty hyped up, but from what I hear it's becoming less hype and more reality. Can't find any visuals or anything other than artist renderings, but we'll see. It looks to have lots of potential.

And that video linked above does kick major ass. I forgot to mention it in my first post. Even if your connection sucks, it's worth waiting out the 44MB.

First thoughts: WOW, the graphics are amazing. If you're a fan of big space battles with lots of flashing lights, dload this now and watch the "movie mode."

Now to try out the actual gameplay

love the graphics, and the movie mode... WOW

but that demo was hard as all get out, took me a couple min to even get a grip of the contols, and even then i still got smoked. the carrier is all but useless, and the other ships dont have enough power to take on the other ships

any tips on how to survive in the demo?

YOu have to manually launch the other 3 wings of fighters and bombers on your carrier. Launch them all at once against the first ship and also have all your other ships target as well. WOn't take long.

Keep the enemy battleship away from your forces and gun down it's escorts. Once you have done that, you have to avoid nukes launched from stations.

Attack the 2 closest ships first.

Order ship 1 and 2 to attack devices.

Order ship 3 and 4 to drain shields.

Order ship 5 to close in, but do not activate any of its weapons (youÔÇÖll need them later).

Once the shields of a ship are down order ship 3 and 4 to destroy the ship.

Once these two ships are destroyed, attack the other three ships

Keep clear of the asteroid field!.

Order ship 5 to close in, but still do not activate any of its weapons.

Only proceed once all enemy ships have left the area or have been destroyed.

Attack the asteroids (not the outpost)

Order ship 1-4 to attack devices.

Before proceeding make sure that all the asteroids except the outpost are completely cleared from devices.

Attack the outpost

Order ship 1-3 to retreat from the outpost.

Order ship 4 and 5 to attack the outpost with missiles (Artillery Attack).

Once you are out of missiles order all your ships to attack the outpost with everything they have got. Especially order ship 5 to deploy bombers.

Order all your ships to retreat from the outpost once the core of the outpost is shot dysfunctional.

Order all your ships to close in on the exit point. Once all the ships are close they will jump out of the system together.

Actually, I've heard from a number of sources that the game will still be released, which is good news, because out of all the upcoming space-based strategy games, this is the only game I'm looking forward to just as much as Homeworld 2. It hasn't been officially announced as gone down the tube yet, and it's still even supposed to ship with Matrox's fancy new video card, so...
