    It looks like they will actually release it in our lifetimes ;) They are now saying November 26. Think Master of Orion 2 with souped-up graphics on a much wider scale.

    You said something in another thread, that its like alpha centauri on a galactic scale. If this is true, I will probably buy it soon after it comes out.

    Here's my favorite, it's all of the playable races in the game (except for one which they have never shown)

    Thats a huge selection! I'm definitely getting it now! It's a mix of wierd aliens to a guy that kind of looks like an eath general. This is going to be one cool game.

    Yea, the Humans look kind of like Imperial Officers fom the original Star Wars trilogy.

    There is another race that is going to be really weird but nothing will be revealed about them until the game is released.

    Most of those races are pretty wierd. Especially the one that looks like a jellyfish, and the one to the right of him. One kind of looks like a demon also. Looks cool.

    The two jellyfish looking races are of the same type of creature. All of the races are divided into species (Humanoid, Saurian, Ichthytosian, Insectoid, Eoladi, Cybernetic, Lithovore, Harvester)

    Oh, that's just a Sakkra. It's not a demon, just a lizard.

    That's a Silicoid. They tend to be a little bitchy in my opinion.

    He he, it was either going to be MOO3 or WCIII, and I chose WCIII, but I guess if I had chosen to buy MOO3, I wouldn't have been able to anyways. I've seen a copy of the beta, looks cool.
