Found out a couple of days ago the release date will be December 16th. By now that sounds like an eternity as vast as the galaxy you get to play around in. Man I can't wait for this game. This takes me actually back 30 years when the idea of a galaxy to explore, 256 planets at as time was mind boggling. Weekends spent dealing in Arcturian Megaweed, fighting with Targoids who yanked you out of hyperspace, avoiding/attacking vipers when being wanted, and basically just exploring and restarting after having bought tribbles. And judging by the scope and scale of this version 3 decades later, this might just have the potential to do it again. (Of course, it has the potential to be an epic disappointment). This might even be the first game I'm going to play online. From what I've gathered that shows great promise. Anyone else looking forward to this one? Especially when you've played the oldie as well? The old Link to video. The new Link to video. Want. Waaaaant!!!
