News Comments > Gearbox Snags Homeworld IP

Well, it could have been worse. Could also have been better. At least they're getting to work on putting Homeworld up on GOG (at least, that's what I assume from the statement.)

As for them developing a new Homeworld, I don't really see it happening. Gearbox has never made an RTS, or even anything like it. I would imagine if they judge the interest big enough, they'll farm the IP out to someone (Relic perhaps?)

Creston

Never underestimate ego and arrogance. Bethesda had never made a isometric turn based RPG before either, but that didn't stop them from buying the Fallout franchise and converting it into a shooter.

I can understand the point about them coming in late on DNF and trying to wrap it up, but giving them cover for Alien Colonial Marines is utterly ridiculous. They were the ones that got the contract. They did not come in on a half-finished project. It was theirs to screw up, and screw it up they did.

I hope the 'many worlds' interpretation of quantum mechanics is true, because then it means there is a universe in which companies like Looking Glass made it, and companies like Gearbox went bankrupt.

Good. I don't think a couple of no-name developers have earned the right to have a franchise like Homeworld just handed to them on a silver platter.

The problem with these mega-publishers is that they sacrifice everything for quarterly profits. You notice they aren't announcing a projected loss of money, just not as much as they promised their investors.

The mindset of large corporations need to change. They're so concerned with posting a good quarter that they'll literally screw over the entire long-term future of their companies to make one quarter look good for the shareholders.

Project Unity seems like an awful lot of effort to get the same results as a modded Xbox 1 with emulators on it.

I'm very interested in this but the devs seem to be suffering from feature creep (fancy roadmap or not), I think I'll just wait until its finished to grab it.

Feature creep is when you have a game in mid-development, and you keep trying to add new stuff to it, like Duke Nukem Forever. The features in Starbound were announced when the game was announced. It's always been ambitious.

Sweet "at least" two games I can completely and utterly skip.

I hope White Knighting Glenn Beck was worth it.

I'd rather people White Knight Glenn Beck than call anyone who disagrees with the Obmessiah's policies racist.

That's rich considering Glenn Beck once said of the president: "I really think he has a deep seated hatred of white people."

Ok I'm pretty much blown away. I can't believe that that is basically just a 2D scene. Looks so much like an old-school infinity engine game, but with 100% modern graphics.

Go Obsidian!!!

His beer show is pretty cool though, if you're in to that sort of thing.

Frankly good for him. He put his time in, made millions, and now he's doing what he loves, and that's a lot more than most of us can say.

It's nice to see Kickstarter put to good use in giving a small start-up the chance to fulfill a dream.

Oh come on, there's an easy way to figure this out. Just pretend to announce a new NOLF game and wait to see who sues you.

It would at least help you narrow it down.

I'm happy for them, because their hearts seem like they're in the right place. They like making these kinds of RPGs and they like playing playing them.

For too long we've been fed a line of bullshit that said there was no market for a thinking person's RPG. They don't all have to be transformed into first person shooters with RPG window dressing.

I'll be amazed if Gearbox ever gets another high profile license again.

Yeah no business leader would ever commit fraud. No politician would be naive enough to believe a sales-pitch involving new jobs in their state.

In the long run, maybe this will work out best for the actual games.

It's not like they won't be making games based on the property.

It's been live for less than 24 hours and someone is complaining because the mods are all just simplistic cheats? Get some perspective, FFS...

Actually this afternoon a fairly huge mod got uploaded that adds more content than most paid DLC for other games has. Give it time.

You're right. BioShock Infinite is so much more immersive and well realized than System Shock ever was...

I would hope so, given the development time, the modern technology, and budget, compared to System Shock 2. It also helps if your publisher cares about the product.

But the series isn't nearly as RPG oriented as System Shock was... and that was my point.

It's not quite like turning a turn based story driven RPG into a shooter. The System Shocks were always hybrids, much like Deus Ex. At any rate, "spiritual successor" doesn't mean "direct sequel", so I'm not going to start nit-picking details about the best game I've played this year. The game might not be heavy on RPG elements, but it makes you think (about more than just the action), and that is more than I can say for most games out there.

Bioshock Infinite deserves it. It's the best shooter in years.

When someone can literally afford to spend roughly 30 million dollars for a 10 day vacation, I have a hard time donating money to them.
