    I've been looking at this game. It's beautiful and it's discounted on Steam right now.

    Anyone play it? 4X games tend to fail with me, but man I'm liking what I'm seeing.

    I've really been wanting to get into a space game when my time frees up a little. I bought Elite Dangerous and its DLC when it was on sale during the summer, but am waiting to play it when I have more time and after I buy a flight stick or two for it.

    Is Endless Space 2 a launched game or Early Access?

    I'm pretty sure it's launched now. I just went a head and made the purchase. I heard they had save game issues where it gets corrupt, but I saw on July 1st, they think they have the issue and are fixing it. Not sure if that was released yet.

    As for Elite Dangerous. I don't have the DLC, but I've played the game quite a bit. It's cool, but it lacks enough depth and you spend so much time warping / super drive or whatever it's call and trying not to overshoot the station. (though now mostly I just overshoot it then go back and it seems to be faster)

    Elite could be so much better than it is. Though it's not bad and the graphics are awesome.

    After looking at it, it seems more like a Civilization for space and/or RTS type of game, which usually don't interest me. I have been thinking about getting the latest Civilization game, but not sure I would play it long enough to justify it.

    As for space games, I prefer more of an immersive first-person type of space game. I agree, Elite Dangerous is not perfect, but it's better than most alternatives. I have a lot of hope for Star Citizen, but it may be years before they actually launch that game, if at all based on some of its detractors.
