Interesting that they said there could be some connection between the first game and this one. They said something might be in the works to recognize that you finished the first MUA. Also worth noting that they are aware of the downloadable content buzz, even though they have nothing to announce yet.
...Downloadable comic missions, here we come. (Ok, maybe I'm being a bit too hopeful ;-)
Would be awesome though and this does seem to be an emerging trend. Here's hoping!
