    That seems like a competition/game that my parents play. It's called dictionary. Basically, you learn some really random words and what they mean. You sit with a group of six or so people and you state the word. Then everyone writes down what they think it means. Then the person that chose the word reads them out one by one and then people vote on which one they think is the correct answer. The more people that don't vote for the correct answer, the more points that person receives. I remember one of the words was 'Torsk'. One of the suggested meanings was ' A Russian issued army torch'. The correct answer was a type of fish. It is an awesome game to play.

    Well, I would've gotten that one. So would PG. It's norwegian for cod.

    Sounds like a fun game, actually.

    There used to be a gameshow on TV in the UK like that called Call my Bluff. It ran for a very long time, but I don't think it's still being made. It consisted of two teams of three players. An obscure English word would be shown and each member of one team would have to give a detailed definition of what the word meant. Each of the three members would give completely different means. The other team would then have to guess which meaning was correct and which two were bluffing.

    If you haven't played a classic game in years, it's never too late to start!

    Hehe.. I agree, Teho, the game actually sounds pretty fun. I would for sure have loved playing that. Torsk can be quite tasty if cooked the right way.

    We should do it on here. Of course when you come up with a word people aren't allowed to look it up in the dictionary or online. It would be sweet

    If I was responsible for the final cover I would have been well impressed, as I have no artistic talent myself.

    Here is what was released:


    And here is what could have been. Has a more epic feel to it:


    Also found this low res one that might of been another candidate, but still prefer the middle picture.

    I also prefer the middle Homeworld 2 cover, but all in all, the 3 of them are not bad.

    Regarding story, compared to the Space Opera Homeworld I found it a major disappointment and I hated the stuff such as magical hyperdrive cores that give people connected to it longlivity.
    People tend to badmouth Homeworld Cataclysm because the story sounded a little Star Trek esque but it was fun compared to Homeworld 2 during which I really had moments of "Man this is boring", having to finish 'filler' missions in the hope something good came after it.
    Earth is like a 24 hour, Seven days a week Stupidity contest which has been running for centuries.
    And every time they are ready to pronounce a winner, a new contender appears on the scene.
