  1. This is just a silly post so don't take it seriously.

    Ok to the people reading this if you have ever played Dune 2000/Emp. Battle for Dune. Or have read Frank Herbert's Dune series...take a hard look at the Planetside 2 factions then back at Dune. Anyone else seeing the resemblance or am I just going crazy?

  3. Its uncanny! Especially with the VS and Ordos
  4. I controls the spice, I controls the universe

  5. Dude after long thought i've come to the conclusion that the planet Auraxis is just Dune 10,000 in the past.
  6. If you seriously dare compare NC to Atreides, I will have to maim you..

    Also: Ordos were not in the books! they were made up for the games, ARGLE BLARGE.

    lastly: TR are nowhere near as cool or evil as harkonnen..

    The comparison is about as appropriate as 'Starcraft has 3 factions..' <_<

    Dune fanboy mode, deactivated :p
  7. Don't make fun of the Ordos just because they were added to make the games more interesting, they were still my introduction to pc gaming.
    I was a small child with a legion of green mercenaries at my disposal, and I sent countless to their deaths before I got a hang of the game- and even then they died in the hundreds.
  8. Nah see, the way I see it is VS = Spacing Guild and/or CHOM company, NC = Atreides, TR = Harkonnen and/or Imperials.

    Personally, I think it's pretty fitting. VS could also be the Bene Tleilax though.
  9. No not really.
