Kind of looks like my first wife, pretty but shallow. Hope I'm wrong about this, I was about her.  :coolsmiley:

  It looks like marketting already got hold of this and pulped it into a series of vacuous cliches: real time, epic, sandbox (I'm surprised "rogue-like" isn't there too).  If you are desperate for some Pacific war there is always WiP Admiral's edition which truly has absolutely everything by the ton and more.

Agreed, the torpedo spam in the video doesn't look realistic!

Yeah, the first ones were semi-realistic and fun.  Its good having the strategy layer and then the tactical layer.  Its weird to compare it to WITP.  I would never even consider those as competitive at all.

Come on.  You know if this game was called Victory at Sea:  Warhammer in the Pacific, you guys would be going crazy for it!
