Why I’m Excited for Homeworld: Remastered

The recent announcement of a remastered version of Homeworld has me really excited for quite a few reasons.

For its time the graphics were really top notch, so I can't wait to see how its going to look with all those shiny new textures! :D

Nicaragua3303d ago

The graphics were good but I think the main reason it still looks good today is the art style - its really timeless and a ship from Homeworld really stands out from other sci-fi spacecraft.

I cant wait for this - torpedo friagtes and pulsar gunships FTW!

Gazondaily3304d ago

Yeah love the art style on this.

I was never really a Homeworld fan so it's going to need to be really special to get me to try it.

BOBN4G3304d ago

Star Citizen can suck it. Homeworld is the past and future of space sim.

DeMoNiK_ZA3304d ago

Agree wholeheartedly with this statement :P

chris13gt3304d ago

Homeworld it is not space sim.It's RTS.

W0nderer3304d ago

All this nostalgia. Maybe that's why we like it huh? But the thing is Demonik, its never going to match up to your memory. Doesn't that just lead to disappointment?

DeMoNiK_ZA3304d ago

I loved this game so much, even if it was a slight disappointement, I would still love it anyway.

Plus, on-launch modding support and new multiplayer netcode will ensure that there will always be a good time to be had!

W0nderer3303d ago

What a bonus. You take a game, remaster it and make more money off it :P Well I suppose they did put the work in.

Somebody3303d ago

Remastering a game from 1999 is far better than remastering games that you bought just months before(Tomb Raider, Metro Redux and TLOU are good examples) and it's definitely better than making gamers pay publishers every month to stream old games to their new consoles.

I love the Homeworld Cataclym expansion but I have never played the first game. I don't know where to look for the game and if I do find a copy there's bound to be some technical difficulties when playing them on modern PCs.

If they are remastering a game made 16 years ago not only graphically but technically so that it is playable on modern PCs then I don't see anything wrong with it.

Hey n4g, can we maybe not allow articles where you can only read 3% of it before hitting the pay wall?

Snookies12170d ago

The disagrees were from people that already paid, haha.

neutralgamer1992170d ago

They just bought them not long ago. This is absurd. Embracer owns so many gaming studios and IP’s. They just don’t know to manage them right TBH

Give us saints row 1-2 proper HD remaster (3-5 million in sales confirmed as long as no major bugs)

Focus on AA games that cost less than 40 million go develop while funding 2-3 major AAA titles. Those smaller titles should aim for 8/10 type games with focus on fun and be released within 2 years while bigger games are given 3-5 years

Sniperwithacause170d ago

You got it all figured out!
Sounds like you need to send over your resume to corporate office! Lol
All jokes aside. They need to figure it out quickly.

neutralgamer1992170d ago (Edited 170d ago )

Lol no they need suits and number crunchers haha

What use to be available to us as bonus content for free by unlocking or cheat codes is now micro transactions

Gaming is generating so much money that we have so much soulless content simply for money grabs

Embracer's problem is that they have spent too much on acquisitions of game studios and when they did, interest rates were lower when compared to today. With higher interest rates on their loans, they have to sell studios to raise capital.

crazyCoconuts170d ago

Sounds like a multi-million dollar "oops"

BrainSyphoned170d ago

If they would have bought Bethesda their stock would have crashed and sunk the company a couple days ago.

I’ll be the jerk that says it
Get’m Microsoft get’m, or Sony 🤷🏿

Outside_ofthe_Box170d ago

Hopefully Microsoft saves us and buys them. Gaming has never been better because of them!
