I wish Midnight Suns got the attention it deserved. This reminds me of a more budget version of that, but still glad we’re getting games like this.

I ended up liking it alot more then I thought but that card system truly turned me off of it at release. I think alot of us would be fans of midnight sun's just wanted an xcom game. Even liking midnight sun's after the fact I still would have preferred more of an xcom game. I'm a bit biased though xcom 2 and the series itself is on of my favorites.

X-Com 2 is pretty great, but the card mechanic made sense in Midnight Suns where it was just to balance out the use of super powers so they couldn’t be spammed. It worked for me and I really enjoyed it. I do like X-Com traditional turn-based Strat mechanics as well, which I think this game is doing. I’ll definitely check this one out at some point, but I got my hands full juggling Unicorn Overlord and SMT V Vengeance and I’m a platinum hunter so I got my work cut out for me, lol.

A fun superhero tactics stylized game worth checking out.

Rbailey you've played?

It does look pretty cool and I'm glad it doesn't seem to have any thing extra(sorry I'll flat out say it, cards). It was my biggest turn off and why I didn't buy marvels day one.
