          Hmmn, I just bought the UFO: Trilogy . . . sort of a, more recent sequel of sorts to Xcom. It's not in space persay, but it does have aliens. And the third game's on Mars. I also have homeworld and Starcraft on my computer, neither of which I've yet to finish. I'll finish them one day. (SC:BW that is).

X3 and Freelancer. Used to play Homeworld 2, but got fed up with its dislike of multiple cores.

Re: Still play any space related games?
I've been intending to play Tachyon: The Fringe ever since I found out it was on GameTap, since I rather enjoyed the demo, but I haven't gotten around to it yet.  I might give whichever one of His PhD-ness's games is on there a shot too, just to see if they holds up to their near-mythic status. :p

Re: Still play any space related games?
I've been playing past four days Sins of a Solar Empire. It's a decent game for an RTS. I really dislike the lack of depth though. It has three races but they play almost exactly the same and their ships are nearly identical save looks and special abilities. The game has managed to keep me entertained for a while. Not worth the full price tag though, but get it if you find it from a bargain bin.

- Nexus: The Jupiter Incident
Oh man, this game is golden. It's almost sad how overlooked this game has been. I love it to bits and played through it several times. Unfortunately it seems like there is almost zero change for it to receive a sequel due to poor sales. :( I wish there were more games like this, besides of Homeworld series.

Here is a tech demo by Nexus devs of what Nexus 2 would have been like: http://sargoth.spymac.com/space_techdemo_HD.rar

HomePlanet
HomePlanet: Playing With Fire
How is HomePlanet, is it any good?

To be honest, I didn't enjoy it that much, it's extremely unforgiving, which is ok if you like that kind of thing, but I just found that it was too close to the line to be fun.

Yeah...there are hardly any Real-time strategy games which are space themed. I was so happy the HW wasn't the only one.

By the way, any of you play games of Derek Smart?

I found it very good actually. And that I'm playing the semi-english version makes it better.

DO NOT MENTION HIS GAMES ! I had a nightmare involving a mono-textured DeathStar which is a quarter of a monotextured planet, 10-15 stars in the background, and the whole HLP in that deathstar... And everything was in HIS games. Battlecruiser Millenium I think...

I can see how some people would enjoy it to be honest, it is a very challenging game, but it just didn't click with me :)

That's because FreeSpace and all it's mods spoiled the people here, so they can't keep up with something as challenging as HomePlanet. :P

When the english patch is released, then you'll all be more interested I think.

Re: Still play any space related games?
I still fire up Rouge Squadron every once and a while! And there are numerous Sci-Fi FPS's I still play with, most set in space or a spacehip/station/planet! Have played X:Beyond the Frontier, keep meaning to get into X2 but FSOpen keeps distracting me! :P

Nexus: The Jupiter Incident.....now I have wanted to have a go of that since I saw that techdemo of Nexus2, pity it will never be released!
