    Same music played in the Housing video. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bqadob8Jxjs

    So perhaps Phineas' race?

    Oh, yes, I didn't make the connection. I wondered about Phineas' race but didn't think it likely they would be playable, although it fits perfectly.

    I don't think Phineas' race will be playable, either - I think they'll be much like WoW's goblins, prior to Cataclysm. "Unannounced race" doesn't necessarily mean "unannounced playable race"... and Phineas' race hasn't actually been named yet. ;)

    You are right ofc, but why would they have a theme song? That would imply a stronger presence even if they are not playable.

    Well, it's been implied that Protostar will have a strong presence throughout the game, being the primary wheelers and dealers on both sides of the faction lines. They're a neutral party, but also a pretty major corporation trying to sink their fingers into the wallets of Nexus' inhabitants! I would not be surprised to see Protostar-created towns here and there (egads, it's be like Las Vegas :confused:).

    I would be thrilled if they have a Protostar-based space station that's just a giant amusment park!

    Like the Gold Saucer in FF7...but in Space!

    Hey Guys!
    I'm new here.

    Okay, so i'm REALLY excited for this game...which is rare for me.
    The look of the game is amazing!
    I'm not a fan of pay-to-play...but if this game is, i'd be more than happy to.

    Just wondering; i know it's early days...but have the devs expressed interest
    in making more playable races? I love the 3 starting races, but...i really want
    to see what other wacky creatures they can come up with!

    Yes, there will be more races. At the moment we are waiting for a fourth unannounced race for the Exiles and all the other (four) Dominion races.

    Apologies if this has already been mentioned (couldn't see it but I'm old and senile :p) but I found it interesting that Espers are the only class with a finite resource (mana).
    All the other classes have resources that regenerate over time or are generated in combat. Espers have combo points generated by abilities but mana specifically mentions out of combat regen.
    Have to see how they balance that (or if they gain a regen mechanic ie lifetap-style, trading health for mana etc), or even if it's an issue at all.

    Still early and not enough info but my speculating hat slipped on :oops:

    Most recent comparable scenario (for regen mechanics) would be Agent/Smuggler (or BH/Trooper for that matter) healing versus Sorc/Sage healing in SWTOR - on my Smuggler I was like a duracell battery so long as I managed my energy (regenerated constantly) whereas on the Sage I had to know when I could spare a global cooldown to lifetap for more force (+ when it was safe to do so due to the health loss).

    Nice site btw - doing all the hard work compiling stuff for us lazy folks is much appreciated :D

    I hope the Mechari will have access to any other classes unveiled, if not I guess I could make do as a warrior :)

    Will be interesting to see whether they just reworded 'arcana' to mana and if it still regenerates in combat as per the initial post screenshot or if it has changed to be a finite resource now as per the Esper. Ta for the linkage - had missed that when was browsing the classes quickly on the offical site.
