Dan takes Homeworld 2 for a BackSpin

It may come as a bit of a shock, but our fearless host Danny Jay actually plays more than Nintendo games.

We all have fairly large backlogs of games in our libraries, some of them are pretty old - in this episode Dan takes Homeworld 2 for a BackSpin, and the game holds up surprisingly well considering its age (okay, 2003 isn't that old, is it?)

Homeworld 2 is a real-time strategy space combat game, and is a great improvement from its predecessor - Homeworld - which was released 4 years earlier. The game lets you move in all three dimensions (X, Y, and Z axis) - and relies on resource management, ship building, and strategy to defeat the Vaygr.

Watch Dan put the game through it's paces - in the hopes that he will conquer the Vaygr scum!
