it's on Steam?
Yep, just verified. First off, on GOG they've got the Ultimate Edition GalCiv I for $9.99.
On Steam, the only version I found was a bundle of GalCiv I and GalCiv II (both Ultimate Editions), for just under $30. Since I already have GalCiv II, Steam offered just GalCiv I to me for $4.99. Guess it depends on what one has/wants or is willing to buy.
I may get GalCiv I just to try it out (again?). I've thought for many, many years now that I'd played that game a little back in the day after buying CD versions of both it and the debut of Fallout on the same trip to ... uh ... I'm getting old ... Comp USA? Was that a thing?
But that can't be possible, right? I know for certain that I bought Fallout in late 1997 (it released in October of that year) ... but according to Wiki GalCiv I wasn't released until 2003?
Anyone have any idea of what new/newish space strategy game for the PC I bought in the late fall of 1997?
Whatever it was I didn't play it much, due to Fallout becoming one of my favorite games/franchises of all time (I happily disembarked from that boat, however, prior to FO4's release, and if Bethesda doesn't do something truly extraordinary with Elder Scrolls VI, I plan to just forget that they've made anything after FO3 and Skyrim).
My best guess, based on some weak Google-fu, is either Master of Orion II (which I didn't think I'd ever played) or Space Empires III (which I don't remember at *all*) ...
slight subject change
Years ago I bought GalCiv III + Crusade Expansion Pack DLC but I have yet to install that, as I've heard so many *terrible* things about it, if nothing else at least in terms of comparison to it's predecessor.
Would anyone like to defend GalCiv III or 'splain why it's a good one to play now (especially since I already have the base game)?
And/or, same question for GalCiv I?
