One thing I just tested in Homeworld 1 campaign...you no longer need to spend a bunch of time at the end of a mission to collect all the remaining resources on the map.

Clicking Hyperspace will automatically give you the remaining resources.

I still recommend spending time before ending each mission to organize and replenish your units, do any research available, etc.

As I haven't played it yet, not sure if Homeworld 2 was changed to not force you into the next mission whether you are ready or not.

I know really good players were far more skilled with the tactical part of it than I was, so they were probably able to get through those battles easier/with fewer losses, but to me it was just "Send my big blue blob to their big red blob and watch the shitstorm."

And maybe that's why you didn't do so well in the later missions? You don't just send units in and hope they survive. Use Tactics and Formations and use the proper units versus enemy unit types.

Much was always made of the fact that it had full 3D, but it never really used that full 3D in any way. Yeah, you could attack stuff from above or below, but it seemed to make zero difference to anything, so why not just attack from the front? It also had a pretty clunky mechanic for selecting the 3rd axis that I found fiddly to deal with.

Uhhm, so that maybe they can't use their primary weapons against your ships? Frigates and Capital Ships have some weaponry to shoot various directions, but their primary weapons generally shoot out the front. But go ahead, attack from the front and wonder why your ships are being cut to pieces.

Edit: Just to add, as I'm playing the game right now...in mission 5 you are specifically told that the enemy frigates have lighter armor on the top, bottom and sides, with instruction to move your units and attack accordingly.

Also, IIRC, there wasn't really much to distinguish the ship types from one another. Every bigger class of ship just had more health and did more damage, but I don't believe they had specific uses or powers that allowed you to use them in various ways (I may be wrong about it, it's been ages since I played it.) It all just seemed like straight-up DPS, so to speak.

No, No, No, No, No. I don't understand why you or anyone else would post this kind of stuff without actually knowing or looking it up first. It's not like the information hasn't been available for 15 years.

It's a rock-paper-scissors format for the units. Mousing over the units in the Build menu tells you exactly what each unit is strong against and weak against.

Fuck copyright laws. That shit should be in the public domain already. I don't get paid royalties on the code I wrote 20 years ago. 10 years should be max copyright. 15 years at the outside. US Constitution:

How in the fucking hell is 90 fucking years "limited" in any way, shape, or form? My unborn grandson will be an old man by the time any song created in my lifetime enters public domain. Ridiculous. Hell, the law should probably be "once the artist has recovered the production costs, the art enters public domain."

You've gotta be kidding me right? The band Yes, still exists. You think after a few years they should just lose all rights to their own music and not get paid?

That is just all kinds of stupid.

I don't know, first game hasn't aged well I played it last week. It would need to be reimagined for sure. I actually liked most of the series but they all suffer from my lower teenage standards from years past

I'm sure it doesn't hold up, but back in 1996 is was a damn good console ARPG. I played it on the Playstation when it first came out and never played the PC version (if I remember right it came later and didn't look as good). Nothing to say a modern Legacy of Cain ARPG couldn't be done well.

When they moved to the 3rd person fighting game style, I was really annoyed. I didn't like them at all, and still don't like that style of game (Arkham series being the exception).

Hiest delayed again, color me not surprised. Was expecting it today, not really disapointed still got the Destiny itch. My guess is R* has a skeleton crew working on it and moved most people over to creating paid DLC... Same reason it never came out last year, they were all working on the next gen ver of the game.

I don't remember Heists having a date before. Last I recall was when they announced the last PC delay, they also announced Heists would be coming to consoles in the weeks prior to the PC release, but hadn't given a date.

What baffles me the most about the song choice is that the original Homeworld song by Yes that was at the end of the original game will not be in the Remastered "due to licensing issues".

So they are willing to pay to use Sail for a trailer, but not the Homeworld song for the full game? Granted "licensing issues" doesn't necessarily mean that gearbox didn't want to pay...could have also been the record company or band was asking for a ridiculous amount, or simply didn't want to license the song again.

I'm not going to miss the song from the game though as it was in the credits anyways and it's easily listened to on Youtube.

Original Homeworld credits.

Edit: Just to note, there is a post over on the Gearbox forums from a dev stating that they are hopeful for the future with getting the song back in. I can only imagine that if the song was in the game it would be good exposure for the band to pick up some sales and new fans.

Aside from several people already on ignore, the majority of this thread seems to have no problem with this delay. So not sure what you are going off about this time.

Didn't last time you say you you were done, you had deleted your Social Club account and cancelled your preorder and weren't interested in this anymore because of the last delay?

Move on, stay excited, but leave the drama in your head.

Right on three counts. I am done, I deleted my RSC account (or rather, uninstalled it and it now lays dormant) and cancelled my pre-order (the very next day actually). I'm still interested in the game, obviously, and will be. And I'm not bringing 'drama', I'm giving my opinion. Because it doesn't line up with yours doesn't mean it's dramatic bullshit. That statement proves that you're only interested hearing things that you deem worthy, which proves my point.

=-Rigs-=

I didn't say anything in contrary to your opinion, as your post wasn't clear who you were talking to or what you were actual arguing.

You seemed to be defending those that preordered with your post, which seemed in direct contradiction to your "Fuck Rockstar" post from before. But as you said you are having trouble putting thoughts to words, so I'll just assume it's more to do with being overly emotional over the topic.

it's probably because their first quarter financials are already looking good, so they want to pad their second quarter financials by pushing this a few weeks back.

Someone mentioned Heist hasn't been released. Is this suppose to release for the Sony/MS prior to the PC release? If so perhaps they want it to be exclusive to consoles for a bit longer.

As for people being butt hurt in anyway in this thread, that is how it works here. IMO no game is or should be given special treatment. Obviously a well enough adjusted person will be able to deal with this delay.

Read the news story other than just the headline.

With Heists for consoles being so close to the previous release date, I'm sure this has more to do with getting Heists and Online as bug free as possible for PC at release.

If they have a brutal release, the Internet might explode in hatred. They have to get this right.

I didn't realize this was gonna get full mod support. I wasn't super interested before, but that kinda changes things.

~ 3 months before a full Battlestar Galactica TC?

Yep. Was talked about in the PAX East video. Whether it was Gearbox or Blackbird, one of them have hired on a few of the longtime Homeworld modders to help with the Remastered release as well as improving mod support.

I give up. You know, it's pretty jerkish to make someone feel bad and bully them just because they're excited about a game coming out and disappointed that they delay it. So what? How does that hurt you in any way? I got lambasted last delay for going off the chain a little about it and all I could think was what the fuck does that have to do with you? Congratulations, you wait for reviews, you wait for word of mouth. I can GUARANTEE there's something that you DON'T wait for, something that you just can't wait to get your hands on and when that something (whatever it may be) gets delayed, you get upset. No one is immune and if they say they are, they're lying to themselves! It's like some of you get off on giving those of us who are looking forward to this game a hard time...and it's sickening...

Battlefield Hardline just picked up some extra sales on the PC from this delay no doubt. They were scheduled to release a week apart.

Quite possibly. Pillars of Eternity was releasing a day after GTA V on March 26. With the delay I might consider grabbing that. But who am I kidding...I already have several RPG's to finish.

Unfortunate. This canceled game looks more interesting than a number of other games that have been released in the past year.

Then again, it's Square Enix so we should expect as much...

Guessing there is always the Darksiders series,
Ray Flaws and all.

Now that I watched some of the video, this actually looked good. Supernatural abilities with the Batman fight system, semi-rpg and open world = I'd buy.

The game was not projected to meet Square Enix sales projections, and was scrapped

Was this the same idiot that expected 6 million sales in the first month for Tomb Raider?

Troll post? Have you ever even played the game? Your ships turn on their own to fire at targets. And sphere formation surrounds and move with the target while firing.

Hrm, sphere surrounds? I don't recall that, but it's been about 10-12 years.

I'll try it out in a few days.

He states they won't move, but he is saying that while fighting a stationary target. If you do Sphere against a single capital ship that is on the move, the ships will move with it.

All I'd like is a proper RPG like the first game. Hated that they went 3rd person with it.

Can't wait for this! I wish they were launching this Tuesday night instead of Wednesday morning as the countdown on Steam indicates.

I just hope these hot key and mechanic changes don't mess with my cloaked wall of doom strategy. I really liked how you could deactivate cloak on one unit while deactivating cloak on the other with one button with both units selected.

These guys release a trailer every second day. Funnily enough, I think by watching them, i've become excited for the game and then over it. I was going to pick it up, but now i think i'll just scratch that itch by watching someone play it for a while on Twitch and then move on.

It may be just me, but i find continual trailers borderline obnoxious, less is more etc.

Yea shame on them for trying to market their self published game in the final week & days before release. /facepalm

Indeed. I can never seem to get anything good on my other toons, but always seem to find good stuff on my DH.

One rift I'll get 10 drops. Another rift I'll get 0. Sometimes I'll see 4-6 Set pieces in a run, other times it's all common junk Legendaries.

Not that I expect anyone to see this in this late post...but here is a gem posted later by DS in the thread linked below.

Derek Smart - If my "attitude" makes you not want to play my game, then I'd say you're the one with the problem because I love my attitude just fine. I don't expect you - or anyone - to like me. I don't care. I'm a creator of games, not a diplomat for the people.

Now go away. We discuss games here, not people.
