News Comments > Homeworld HD/CE Survey
13. Re: Homeworld HD/CE Survey Dec 27, 2013, 14:57 Numinar
 
Collectors edition? Like with a high quality illustrated manual including dozens of pages of awesome back-story and concept art that got you into the mood before you even finished driving home? (it's much harder than texting, but don't judge teenage me! I was EXCITED).

I already have that on the shelf. Gimme Win 7 compatible, HD, modable, reworked netcode, maybe some UI tweaks. Age of Empires 2 HD style (A game that didn't make the jump as well due to being 2d, and the initial offering was pretty lame due to seriously bad engine bugs or "optimisations", but the scope was right!)

edit: Just did the survey. No longer cynical. The updated textures and rendering is a given, it's the hard-copy stuff that was famously awesome in the originals and super risky for Gearbox (Hence Survey). Do they print 10, 20, 50 thousand? Kitchen sink or minimal effort? Could sink the whole project (And chances at HW2) right there with the wrong guess. The game was never competitive enough in MP to have long legs past the play your mates level so gauging nostalgia is the way to go. Could you imagine shipping that interface today? I don't even think grognards like us would put up with it (Despite bemoaning the simplified plane-oriented nature of games like SoaSE.

And thanks for asking guys!

As an Australian who moved to Germany... DO NOT WANT (again, already have the nerfed version). If you feel the need to censor, just rethink releasing at all duders!

Somewhere in my top 10 this one (in MP, even with randoms!). Good stuff.

My publisher went through this recently. It's not fun. There are still "no nos" that there are no ratings for.

R18+ is more about fixing the fact that most MA15+ titles were not actually appropriate for that age group.

Its hard to give up those sales, though hardly worth the creation, testing and submission of a seperate version of a game.

Though it probably does not make financial sense, I would prefer they don't release the game there and see if the people there can get the law modified properly. Some unreleased AAA games will make the country seem more like China and cause more outrage, modifying the games for local sensibilities is only noticed by people who read forums and news sites, a small minority of the target audience and not a big enough pressure group to effect change. If the game does not get sold at all maybe more people will take notice and actually examine the kind of content that is getting cut instead of being blissfully unaware.

Hope this game gets pirated to hell and back. Already purchased Street Fighter IV, and instead of properly releasing patches, they rerelease the fucking game for a 3rd time! It's bad enough with the on disc DLCs, they have to charge $40 for the proper version of the game. They did the same crap with MvC 3.

Enough, Capcom needs to die already.

Totally understand the sentiment, but for some reason I am not mad about this. I went full price for the original on Xbox, but skipped the interim stuff in between (including costumes) until AE went on sale a while ago on Steam. However, nothing is really necessary. If you want this years update you have to pay, as it wasn't free to develop. The costumes are cosmetic fanboy gouging moneymakers only, whatever. What is really creepy is the idea that they remove GFWL from Ultra, but not the previous versions, basically FORCING an upgrade. Oh boy, will it ever rain fire!

I think I got everything ever released for it for about 10 bucks in the AE complete version, 4 years after the initial purchase and it's a game that almost always comes out when people are over. Though maybe Samurai Gunn will replace it if our last session is anything to go by.

I will try and find time to try it. Free weekends are an awesome idea.

Love me some Chivalry. It's not like there are a million of games like this.

They already have co-op in the full campaign I belive. It is a much bigger world than Shogun 2 with more provinces so if you want epic, and the game holds together with de-synching or corrupting save files then you are good to go (Have not tried it myself, not sure what shape it is in).

A more focused campaign map is certainly welcome. Hopefully they hit up some of the earlier Greek wars next.

As for "fix the damn game" or create content, they have dozens of people on the payroll that are better spent in development of new stuff such as artists and designers, and I imagine as long as they have content in the pipeline they can all convince their bosses to let the codies do the maintenance and bug fixing patches instead of being bundled off to the next title.

Biggest upset of the decade, if the hit detection/prediction isn't fixed in the upcoming patch the game is being uninstalled and painfully forgotten.

Really a 3x scope on a pistol? thanks for something that is beyond useless, how about my 110$ back instead?

$110? On an unproven release? Was that all pre-purchase? I think you need to lose that money to learn your lesson, sorry guy.

Had trouble setting this up for someone today, it looks like it might require Fullscreen mode for some configurations as once we set that on the game we wanted to get footy of it worked and the little grey icon appears once in game.

Watching Giantbomb Playing Windjammers I say to myself "dudes, you are doing it wrong!"

A bare bones but HIGHLY POLISHED version of Brutal Deluxe will earn my money, just tempt me! Though most of these updates in the past have been far from worth it. Especially if it's the PC version sounds... yuck!

PC needs more split screen/same screen multiplayer games. Awesomenaughts, Streeties IV Arcade Deluxe Super Edition or whatever and Monaco make it work. 1080p on the plasma is siiiiiiiick for more social gaming. I live in a city and despite having the house to myself for 3 weeks cannot convince anyone to bring their PC over for LAN due to parking issues so for me at least there is a market for arcade style games on PC.

Why are they selling this on the PS3/X360? They only have 512MB ram and I think it's shared with the GPU. Is there a N64/Amiga style memory module for them now? Strange timing with the new console coming out and all...

Using the "Save last X minutes of footage" feature as a tool for work now... so easy! Now I just need to upgrade the 580 at home so I can record the I CANNOT BELIEVE THAT JUST HAPPENED moments that seem to occur in ARMA 3 once or twice a session.

News Comments > Roberts: "Star Citizen is a PC Game"

Awesome! I cannot justify the purchase of a Ferrari equivalent, but more power to those who can!

I just hope it's not a return to the BAD old days of Origin Chris R. "We create worlds the computer you buy in 3 years will be able to play".

And I'm not jealous of him at all with that work rig... those who make games seldom have time to enjoy other peoples. (Unless this new business model is actually crunch free and family friendly)

Have not kickstarted but you'll get my 60 euro on delivery Chris, thanks for Strike Commander way back when BTW.

Oh man, so excited! An awesome guy at work got me a key. This will be my first space trader since... um... does Elite 2:Frontier on the Amiga count? I never got into the Wing Commander one. Looked too icky compared to the X-wing games.

What about Star Control 2 does that count?

Anyway, question now is, wait for the patched or give it a bash now? It's not like I'm not addicted to 4 or 5 other games right now.

Ah sry. Anyways it's literally only just out the door, so sure peeps please speak up on how performance is. I'm not a performance crazed maniac by any stretch of the imagination I just can't imagine the performance I'll get from my GTX480 will be enough with what's being reported.

Wait and see, a 480 isn't that far behind a 580 which isn't that far behind a 680 which is awesome.

Condemned 1+2 are awesome, or at least were on the 360.

What this license really needs is some tech From Chivalry, a AAA budget, and a structure something akin to Baldurs Gate and Dead Islands lovechild and some kind of Total War abstraction to mimic huge battles along with the more adventury stuff. 6 player co-op free roam, without the banal cookie cutter zone system of Borderlands. Something more personal like a Skyrim or Ultima Underworld.

Hmmmmm... could almost be a kickstarter... how much is that license?
