    Even more, I prefer Evolution RTS, Gundam RTS or Conflict Terra rather than this since its a pay-only-none-influence-able-game.

    You can't talk to developers much about the game while it's under developing because its not a free project.
    It's not so much about the gameplay for me -- it's the mere fact that yet another game (with very awesome graphics, too) is getting ported to Linux. We should celebrate that, even if the gameplay isn't what we're expecting. First we have to get game developers thinking about our platform; then we can get picky about how "fun" the game is.

    I have an HD5770 lying on the shelf. Not using it right now due to Evergreen being in a non-completely working state and I'm also still hesitant to build it all myself, although I realy should get my hands dirty by now.

    I'm already impressed by Mesa 7.8.1 r600c being able to leverage performance that's enough to run Tomb Raider: Anniversary on my onboard HD3300 with 128MB onboard RAM. There are some occasional textures that are not rendered as in not updated (this caused a headache in one particular room with pilars >.<), but that occurs rarely throughout the game. I'm sure this has already been fixed in Mesa 7.9.

    As a game developer, Im very interested to see how Unigine performs in an actual game.

    --EDIT--

    just think if this title gets enough publicity AND STEAM is also release and STEAM is used as the digital distribution means, that could be a very nice double wammy for gaming and linux. Can't wait till Q4 now!!!! (even if it is just for this)

    ok I RTFA a bit more and this does sound good!
    A kind of tower-defence and RTS!!!
    The OilRigs (ie the towers) are the primary resource points so like DoW where you were battling for StrategicPoints. I like this type of gameplay because it doesn't encourage turtling

    There does seem to be a variety of units, but still seems C&C (esp TibSun) like variation but ill hold judgement

    What was the last weapon in the trailer - a space-based laser or something ?
    Now your task is to make this run with r800c or r800g. Hehehehehehehehe. Best of luck.

    I have a weakness for RTS ( and there is a distinct lack of them for linux... too many fps from commercial)

    99% certain I shall buy this.
    Question is how good of a RTS is it going to be? SC2 is meh in all fairness, something along the lines of DoW econ would be epic!

    I have a feeling it is going to be very bland between the two sides with virtually the same units ( or vary little distinction - as opose to sc, dow...) ie closer to what C&C did
    I saw one side had these little floaty boats that would move real fast and only shoot one gun... the other side had some huge sub that came out of the water and had rapid fire cannons... that sounds to me like there's some variety

    Visually gorgeous -- where do I sign up?

    I'd preorder months in advance if they will give some special token to people who preorder

    This is AWESOME... next best thing since Savage 2

    If it's anything like C&C3 (gameplay wise), bring it. Looks awesome anyway. Can't wait to use that nuke .. and under Linux.
