    One of the best games I've ever played. I can't wait to replay it again. I highly recommend it if you love challenging strategy games. The soundtrack and voice acting are superb.

    Heh, I've been dodging the Steam sales like a pro, but this I might just have to get into again. =)

    Both original games were an amazing experience. I want to buy the remastered versions so much.
     
  5. 35$ for already played game? no thx, it'll take around half year for mods to catch up if any, and to that time there would be plenty of discounts
    After playing HW with Complex mod, im not sure there is a way back to stock
    they could have include Cataclysm too

    Apart from the Brothers in Arms series Gearbox doesn't make any other games I'd consider worth playing, not even that Borderlands stuff.

  7. Cataclysm has gotta be included, that's ridiculous.
    Makes me so angry when games are remasters/re-releases and they leave out expansions or change the gameplay/mechanics of the game, Tomb Raider Anniversary perfect example, why couldn't they have included an option for a "classic mode" where it was JUST updated gfx/music/sfx but leave all triggers, traps, and gameplay exactly like the original (and make it the TR Gold version with the extra episode why the hell did they leave that out)? Why would I buy the same thing if everything's different? That would mean it is something DIFFERENT, which means its not the same game. Adding in extra lvls or game modes, resolution or HDR is one thing, but fundamentally changing the game itself it a big issue for me.

    I vaguely remember playing the demo as a kid.. anyway just got this the other day and boy have they done a nice job with it! The graphics/visual are unreal too, in no way does it feel like you're playing a game from 1999, it could easily pass off as a new game just released (well I guess it sort of is but you get what I mean).

    I actually play Homeworld skirmishes from time to time including the past several days. In the full length single player the original game contained exploitable "glitches" that would allow unusual situations. For example, I almost always play an all salvage game in which I do not destroy any enemy ships except where the game requires it and I capture/salvage all enemy ships including all strike craft without losing any of my ships. I discovered an exploit in one of the missions where I could capture more strike craft than was intended by the game. I ended up with more than one thousand strike craft from that one mission. I could have gotten more but I just got tired and moved on. Anyway, to make a long story short I wonder if such "glitches" will still exist in the remastered game. We will have to see.
