I haven't played Bioshock, but this looks really fun. It reminds me a lot of City of Remnants in a few ways.

Yeah the main similarity is the intelligent combat system. Cards played into combat (attacker commits first) contribute raw numbers, while units contribute dice. Roll the dice and add up the total, and the loser loses just one unit. In CoR, that's followed by another battle if there's still conflict. In BI, whoever's left has to go to a stronghold (or otherwise die).

Hopefully the old, goofy combat systems of Risk, Axis and Allies, etc., are gone forever.

Yea, agreed. Combat was quite clever in City of Remnants. I think I will like this much more due to the lower cost of defeat (assuming you have a stronghold). It is less stress on the attacker, too, since they only need to win once.

Yes, that's true in general, although I have to say I lots a bunch of units once when my last stronghold was destroyed, that was rough. :(
