What the heck is this? Doesn't look like a game from the screenshots, will have to do some research. Any of you new buyers like it?

Well, I've read that Ascendancy is one of the great old 4X games, and so I thought I'd try it out. In the first 15 minutes, it is tough to figure the game out. This is gaming in the MS-DOS era, and so good tutorials are for the weak, I guess. I've heard that it takes hours to properly get into the game. I'm not sure I'll make it that far, but for a buck I'm going to give it a shot.

It certainly is a game though - it's not all that pretty to look at graphically, but just remember it came from 1995 or so.
