I bet Chris has ideas for Uplink 2, but that name just gets rid of the realism of the game, it just sounds like a sequel (yes - I know it IS a sequel), hows about a simple addition of Uplink ver 2.0????

Uplink 2 : Rise of the Slightly Intimidating Hackers

Uplink 2: Microsoft's Revenge

Uplink 2: After the Revelation

Uplink 2: You want fries with that?

Uplink 2: The Network Plot

Okay, so some of these are just flat out silly, and some are...well, dubious. But I think one or two sound sort-of-usable, at least for examples of what it SHOULDN'T be named. :shocked:

On the ingame sneek preveiw thingee (you'll find it sooner or later if you havent already) it said it was going to be called Uplink 2: Terminal, (it might be the actual name, or it could be the working title, i dont know)
but Uplink 2: Sons of Andromeda sounds pretty good, duke,

keep the funny names coming :)


Edit: Hey, i just noticed, I'm the only one lower than Experianced to post here yet, no fair...

at time of post, i'm a novice. :(

Edit2: (removed crap about Icepick's Supreme Veteren thing)

Actually, terminal was the name of a game they were working on before Uplink.
I think Uplink 2: TERMINAL would be a pretty good name ;)

I think sub titles sound a bit cheesy, but it helps with consumer recognition.
What about:
Uplinked
Terminal  (or any of the sub-titles with Uplink 2: removed)
GateWay  (sounds like a supermarket tho:))
733t (or some other annoying number talk)
Uplink: With added scroll bars ;)
55706C696E6B
J-17


OK I'll stop I'm just being stupid now.

Quiffy's Zoolish...

No, I wasn't serious. Yes, you may hit me.

I agree with the whole subtitle thing is corny, but if there must be, then some (prolly stupid) thoughts are:

Uplink 2: Digerati
U2: The Game :D
Uplink: Episode 1.1.4b

Uplink: Not again!
Uplink: Lost Contact
Uplink: Hurry! The time is UP!
Uplink: Someone is watching u...
Uplink: Nothing is possible anymore.
Uplink: What's that behind you?!
Uplink: I haven't get my order yet!
Uplink: The Darker Side
Uplink: The Other Side of The Coin
Uplink: The Dark Waves...

Haha. Just my 2 cents worth. :D
