I was thinking about it while reading the FAQ and then I saw:
Q: What games are most similar to Ashes of the Singularity?
A: Ashes takes a lot of inspiration from Sins of a Solar Empire and Total Annihilation. However, the game mechanics for planetary conquest are influenced by Company of Heroes.
I was sold right then. As a company, I have always been impressed with Stardock. I have confidence in them that they, and their partners at Oxide, will make a great RTS.
Edit: Is anyone else showing the right hand side of the posts cut off? For me, the sentences that run long are partly cut off.
For example, in the quote above on the first line it ends with, "... game mechanics for planet" and then the next
line down it says, "influenced by ..."
Is there some setting I've screwed up somewhere that increased the size of the text? I've tried it on a
normal 1920x1200 screen and 2560x1080 screen.
