Im in the same boat here 😕

Apparently the Lightspeed expansion is supposed to really change things up and remove a lot of the problematic issues people had with the game prior, so Im a little hopeful. I see so many conflicting reviews but not a ton on the new expansion so... ugh.

I cant buy all the games I want from the last two weeks, and I cant even play all the games I buy!
This game is now jostling around near the top of my list.

Reading reviews saying its a bit jrpg, a bit xcom, a bit 4x, a bit FTL. Oh my! Checking all my boxes here!

Steam reviews also mention that this Lightspeed Edition is much improved over the first release.
Its not emphasized in the title, but this is that version, which is a nice treat for iOS.

The JRPG part gives me pause, but everything else sounds so good I might pick this up tonight.

Oddly enough, its that part that intrigues me. Im not big on FTL type games. Id be curious as to how much is combat driven vs micro management.

I'm in the same boat. I love my turn based combat games. Micro management games last about half an hour on my iPad. 😁
