Homeworld 2 for the road trip!

As I write this, I'm sitting in hotel room in London UK, at the end of a 3-day tradeshow. I left home Tuesday night and so missed the long downtime consequence of the Trinity 1.1 patch. Then again, I'm experience an even longer downtime myself, as I'll only be able to log back into EVE next Monday evening (I've been have trouble installing EVE on this work laptop for some reason, but that's another story).

So in getting ready for this 6 day trip, I installed Homeworld 2 on Tuesday and started replaying the game. I mainly did this so that I could pass the time on the 6 hour flight to Europe. For some reason, unless I'm truly exhausted, I can never sleep during a flight - even a 6 hour long flight. Anyway, since I never finished the game when it came out, I plan on doing so this time. The original Homeworld was a blast and as I've said before my favorite game of all time - after EVE of course! Let's give the (true) sequel a chance.

As for the blog, this kind of explains why I haven't posted over the last 3 days. Tradeshows mean long day, short nights and no time for gaming or posting. I'm staying over for the week-end and will have a chance to play tourist over the next two days. The return flight is on Monday afternoon, which means that I'll be able to give EVE a little run come that evening; once I've patched to 1.1 of course.

You should have the speedlinking links tomorrow morning since I've had a chance to go through the 600 or so posts on my Google Reader and my alerts.

Until then, I'd love to know what game(s) you play when not playing EVE.

Homeworld 2 rocks. Ascension will rock even more. Drool :)

I would invite you to drop in while you're over here but it would be a 1200 mile round trip :)

I never did try Homeworld 2, I did enjoy the first one however.

As far as to what I play when not on EvE...well I've got two games primarely. First off is of course Pro Evolution Soccer, I am mexican after all :)

Also I play IL-2 Flight Simulator.

Those two, plus Eve, make up the bulk of my gaming time.

@Mandrill - When Ascension comes out, I'll be one of the first to give it a try! As for the invitation, well maybe next time!

@Joc - I was looking at the both games and was going through the manual for the first - man they took more care and pride back then. That manual is so well put together. I don't think games will ever made the way they were back then - and that was less then a decade ago!
