My buddy just showed me this, looks disgusting. $20 a month but apparently the battles are really like this, think of a 3D Master of Orion II on steroids and real-time. Just the entire feel and ambiance of whats there really makes me wish I had the time on my hands to get into that kind of thing but, like anyone else I only have so many hours in a day.

I played this game in trial (Eve Online) for about 20 minutes then quit.

It seemed like "All Flash, No Substance" and was boring.

Yeah... that's the game where they were planning to set it up so that you could get paged or text messaged any time your side was under attack. Just what I want, my pager going off at 4 AM to tell me that I need to defend a virtual spaceship.

I think this is a good game for people who have no intention of ever getting a life.

All I see is eye candy. Sweet, sweet eye candy, but I'd rather watch that trailer a couple times than pay 20 bucks a month for a ... what is that, an MMORTS?
