Yes. Actually there's also a pocket MMO of sorts in the works involving fully destructable cities, giant alien walkers, etc. Lot's of good stuff with the 3.0 SDK!

Yes. The finer details are still being baked but ship customization, upgrades, trading, etc. is all (already) part of the core design doc.

This game looks very nice. The graphics looks great. I like it! I would love to buy it but I only have $0.17 in my account. I have to start saving up more money again.

Graphix look great, and the game itself looks pretty nuts!

Online multiplayer for this will be awesome..

Two guys walked into a bar. You think they would've seen it or something.
