i'm not trying to be a **** here, but discussing non-greybox games is a violation of the forum rules...
RULE 3: RESPECT OUR FORUM PURPOSE AND STRUCTURE
-Make your posts in the appropriate forum.
-Don’t start discussions about non-Grey Box games.
-Do not cross-link to other message boards or websites unless approved by a moderator.
while it's fine to mention games to make a point, i think you should not start a discussion revolving solely around a non-greybox game
also on topic:
it's not very unlikely that two very similar games are announced/released, that's just how the scene works. right now spacesims and spacefighter-games are on the rise again, so naturally there will be a lot of games coming out now, because everyone wants to hop on the hypetrains and make some dough. just look at all the minecraft-like games or moba titles coming out...
while both dreadnought and fractured space have some similarities, they are very different in certain core aspects. they have different game modes/objectives and the gameplay should be very different as well concerning speed of matches and the general feel of weight and how the weapons feel.
also i think fractured space does not have a singleplayer campagin (correct me if i'm wrong, been quite a while since i read up on that game).
unless two games are direct competitors i don't think you should compare them, yes the games are similar but we have not even been able to play dreadnought yet (that is for the majority of us, some lucky people got to play it on gaming conventions). the games are not in direct competition to one another as dreadnought won't even be on steam (for the longest time at least).
all in all i think this thread might get closed soon anyways, sorry buddy
