Third rule of the Internet: if you start a poll with a joke answer, people are going to vote for it.
I didn't really care that people voted for it. I wouldn't have put it up there if I couldn't take a joke. While I'd appreciate more seriousness on the Boards, I also appreciate the need for a little humor every once in a while. Or a lot of humor. A belly laugh a day keeps the doctor away. (It's really a proved fact that laughing is good for your health.)

You could of course call it EVN: Omega or EVN: Collision
Nope. Not gonna do it. See below for more details. Or, more accurately, a rant.

I remembered the other titles I came up with!
The first title is the weaker of the two:
EV: Dark Forces
The second title is better, and would probably be more fitting, but you'd better hope to high heaven you aren't attacked for copyright infringements:
Escape Velocity: Dark Crusade
I say this because of WH40K's 2nd expansion title, which is also named as such. I don't think it'd matter, though...
Anyway, that's my thoughts. And of course, there's always the EV: Breaking Point suggestion I first put up in the main thread.
I do like Dark Crusade, but I don't want to get in trouble for copyright infringements....

"Omega Wars" sounds like a title of a game that the developers are really ambitious about and expect it to be awesome, only for everyone else to think it sucks. Also, while "Omega" may sound cool (to some, overused to me), is it approperiate? Omega is the last letter of the greek alphabet and, hence, is tended to be used as "end" or "final", as well as other similiar words. Is your plug about the final wars? If not, think of a new title.
Well, I am really ambitious about it, and I do expect it to be awesome -- if I do it right. I should certainly hope everyone else won't think it sucks.
Omega is definitely appropriate. Think of the Wars as nuclear wars on a galactic scale, where the existence of all mankind hangs in the balance. I actually really like "Omega Wars" because it's kind of a latin-esque (and more futuristic sounding) spin on the phrase "The War to End All Wars," which is what people called WWI...before WWII happened. Yeah, WWI was also called "The Great War," but that's kind of an oxymoron (no war is 'great' per say) and I like TWtEAW better. Y'see, (I hate to give something like this away, so I'll spoiler it out),
depending on which storyline you get into, the game could actually end with the death of all humanity. I mean, no humans left. ANYWHERE.
There, I said it.
I could call it EV: Omega, but I'm really trying to avoid the whole EVO thing, and I want to stress the 'wars' part, as some people may not even know what Omega is (though I'd expect most to), and whereas 'Omega' implies 'the end of everything,' 'Omega Wars' implies 'massive wars that could lead to the end of everything,' which better supports the plot. (People called WWI "The War to End All Wars." If they had just called it "The War" or "The End" would it have had the same effect?)
I'm not calling it EVN: Anything. No. Not a chance. Not if every person on the Web Boards told me to. If my computer suddenly came alive and demanded that I call this TC "EVN:", I'll hit it with a sledge hammer (whilst screaming "NEVEEERRR!!!!!!") and start over on a new computer.
Did I get my point across?
