You know, there’s almost nothing I like better than mining resources on a strange planet. If StarCraft and its ilk weren’t so damn stressful, I’d be in there mining my little heart out. But, since turn-based games are more my speed, I’m glad to see these details on Nexus Ops. It looks pretty straightforward… almost familiar, actually, although I couldn’t say what I think it looks like. I doubt the monolith will be like Dark Tower, and although hexes remind me of everything from Titan to Settlers, I have a feeling it won’t play much like those either. But a nice combat bash where I get to suck up space resources sounds like it’s every bit the WotC Board Game a boy could hope for.
