    Finally some word on it. I’ve been keeping an eye on this since I saw this absolutely amazing game at Origins. I really hope this game does well because its the first game I’ve been this excited about in at least 5 years.

    Meh … Dystopian, Firestorm and Uncharted still seem more interesting. Still though this does have some promise IF they actually start selling stuff (my god it seems like years we’ve been hearing about this game with such little action) and IF people start buying/playing and IF they have a full range. Then I think I’d consider buying in. But with 3 Dystopian fleets, 4 uncharted, 5 firestorm fleets … already … and a group playing those games. Switching to such a similar game for really no reason (Spartan makes good games and they are a few years past where these guys are with all their games … so why buy in) … I’ll pass for now. Looks cool though and I do hope they succeed … its nice seeing new companies put out cool games.

    I looked at the games from Spartan games and the miniatures just leave me feeling…… wanting. I like some of the sculpts but by and large, most of them arent my cup of tea. Im not sure if the turrets are sculped on the figure or if the figures are multi piece figures and the ships can be more dynamically posed or not. Most of the photos I’ve seen make the figures appear very flat and lifeless. I cannot honestly comment on the rules as I havent seen them but I have read the rules from Leviathans and love them. Regardless, the one thing I can always always count on from Randall Bills and Catalyst is that the back story and the fluff surrounding the game will be of the most exceptional caliber. For myself, I play a game as much (if not more) for the storyline the game is set in as almost anything else from the game. Battletech, Shadowrun, Crimson Skies… these all had exceptional backgrounds to them and really helped set the tone for the game. Same goes for Leviathans.

    Until I see more than a handful of sculpts I’ll be sticking with Dystopian Wars. I’ve already sunk a decent chunk of change into Spartan so I can’t see picking up a fledgling game that’s had growing pains to the extent Leviathans has.

    HUZZAH

  • I was interested, but Catalyst took too long, had too much controversy, and then Spartan came along. Sorry Leviathans, we could’ve hooked up, but now we probably won’t.
