On the sidelines for Battletech and Frostpunk, for now

Two games came out today that I’m interested in, yet I haven’t pull the trigger on. The first is Battletech, which is a TBS title with a Sci-Fi setting. The other is Frostpunk, a steampunk-themed city builder (I think?) from the makers of This War of Mine, a game I love.

For Battletech, most of what I have seen and read about it sounds good. Its TBS, which is my thing. It’s got a campaign with some random elements, party building, and unit customization.

I know less about Frostpunk, as even matching videos about it doesn’t clear things up much. But that’s not always a bad thing, as its likely because the game is something new and not easily identified at first glance. Certainly that also fits This War of Mine, and we know how that worked out.

But with both titles, I worry they might be buggy, and/or that they are games you play once, and I’d rather play once when they are patched up and have the needed balance updates included. Perhaps hypocritical considering the number of Early Access titles in my library, but here we are.

Of course more positive news about either title could get me to make a purchase, so we shall see.

    Sips has a frostpunk playthrough if you want to watch/skim for how it looks/works.

    Battletech does not support 21:9 (you had 21:9 monitor if i remeber correctly?), playing tactical game with black borders be damned, you almost can not scroll map with mouse. :(

      Yea the lack of 21:9 support for Battletech is going to keep me away until thats solved. Insane to release a game in 2018 without that.
