orb vs homeworld
thats right come one come all and lt us compare the two RTS games for some reason people seem to forget that homeworld and project earth were the first to take this kind of space themed RTS on a 3d scale orb is a good game dont get me wrong but home world is far more superior if theres any objections please speack up and give a telling i challenge you alll

Gearbox is in the process of making Homeworld 1 and Homeworld 2 into HD versions, and I believe will sell a special edition that includes the original un-altered versions of this game. No news about Homeworld Cataclysm. Cataclysm I found to be a little more enjoyable than 1 and 2, but of course I am not bashing on 1 and 2 as we all agree they are classics. Never got ORB to run on my pc back in the disk days, so we'll see how much of an ancient noob I am when I start up ORB.

Dont forget Haegemonia (a little more 4X ish) and if you dont mind 2D, Conqeust Frontier Wars is epic :)

Haegemonia was a good game ill admitt but it it lacked realism unlike is predassesor imperium galactica back in the mid to late 1990s but ill admit it is a good game regardless as for Conqeust Frontier Wars ive never plso i cant comment on

Ahh.. so many great games. Let's HD them all for the new generation!

I hope they also add that third homeworld game to steam one day. The one where you use a cargo ship and upgrade it into a homeworld ship and fight against a bio ship.

it was one of the better hoemworld games in my opinnion. I do hope they manage to get it and the other two homeworlds put on steam one day., I have orb and haegemonia so getting those other three would be great.

well that all depends steam if can get the licence to sell all 3 homeworld games but if they cant they cant. steam is a lagitimate buisness to so they have to respect copy right laws though saying that it would be nice to homeworld on steam like they did with the old xcom games from the 1990s

Orb has the ugliest ship models ever.

i don't see any reason steam can't get license, all homeworld games are off market right now, so any sales via steam would be pure profit for the publisher......
the only question is will steam have enough reason to actually get the license?

good question but dont forget steam users are mostly people who are in there teens and the current generation had never heard of homeworld the point im trying to make is it about supply and demmand if there not enough demand then they are not going to bother supplying homeworld though i wish they did the the new generation should learn about the history of this genre if they wish to declair to be true gamers

not all the ships are that bad look weird ill agree but so to were some of the kushan ships and the tydan ships not to mention some of the kadeshi and the teranic raiders frigats wernt good looking however dont forget orb and homeworld storys are to do with alien race who have nothing to do with earth so to design a ship human like would be unrealistic and the sense of realism is what maid these two games sell in the first place

ORB was my first Space RTS and it's still my favourite. I love Homeworld, but ORB will always be superior to me.

The story is more interesting than the Hiigarans vs the Vayger and the music score is absolutely brilliant. Amazing game.
