    I love Homeworld, but I do not trust Gearbox and as such I will be waiting for at least a few days after release to gauge feedback from real fans of the series.

    Please be good, please be good.....

    Re: Gearbox details Homeworld Remastered at PAX (video)

    I lost most faith in gearbox when they released Duke Nukem Forever which was a pile of poop however the real kicker was Aliens Colonial marines as that was the WORST game in history (imo and most others it seems), the fact is that they showed off the game at PAX or E3 cant remember and let people play it and it looked great with excellent graphics with the normal disclaimer that 'subject to change' however when it came to release all the graphics were totally different and resembled a very old game and you could see they simply built in extras for the gameshow and then took it all out, flat out lying!

    They only care about borderlands IP which is fine but they shouldnt get other IP if they cant work on both... watching this one closely but will not be preordering it to avoid being burnt like aliens! I only preordered because the E3 demo was much better than the initial videos months before .

    Re: Gearbox details Homeworld Remastered at PAX (video)

    There is a gameplay video on IGN that I posted this morning



    The game looks awesome and from what I've gathered gearbox actually have very little to do with the remaster. The devs involved are all the relic guys that worked on the original and they are "spending an irresponsible amount of time" on this remaster.

    But to be honest I don't really care about the graphics so much. It could look just like a shined up HW2 for all I care as long as they get the mechanics right and don't try and 'modernise' it (read: Make it stupidly easy for the masses to the point of ruining it).

    Classic games. Tried to play the first one again but after the second there was just something wrong with the controls so couldn't hack it. Pre-ordered :-)

    Can't wait. Almost fancy splashing out for the limited edition with 12" Pride of Hiigara model. There's tons of limited edition stuff but this one just seems more worthy of that title being a true classic from the golden age of PC gaming.

    Was waiting for Adagio for strings. If "that scene" gets cut... well, let's say tables will be flipped

    They won't do it, that was by far one of the most moving scenes in any game, ever.

    The fact that you jump into system and the music doesn't start until you pan the camera round and see the planet and the emotion in the voices :'( :'(

    Very tempted, but I can't justify £100 for it.

    The thing I remember most about Homeworld were the mods. Some really good ones out there and I hope they still let people mod with the new engine.
