Never played the original before
I am jealous!
It's been more than a decade for me. I vaguely remember a few of the missions, but mostly this will be almost like a new experience for me.
If you've watched the TB video he shows the intro cinematics from the original game and the remastered and it literally is like a new game just released in 2015. Night and day difference, same for the in game graphics.
Homeworld always looked good but with the new graphics upgrade it looks even better.

Preloaded last night, will give it a try when I get home. Never played the original before but the rave reviews of the original from people here sold me on it. Looks like I'll be popping my homeworld cherry tonight.

There are so many classics that deserve this treatment. A company could get rich doing nothing else but this.
Yeah, I know I said this before but I'd pay for a "remastered" version of Ground Control 1 & 2. Hopefully 2 would lose the cartoony graphics.

But anyways, I'm excited to try Homeworld again after all this time!

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.

the artist barely gets paid for licensing to begin with.. the most money goes to the publishers and labels anyways... they are the ones who fight to keep copyright laws stupid

Fail for using Sail in their trailer.

Awolnation must be in dire need to make cash. Has "Sail" not been commercialized to the max yet? I've heard this song on at least two different commercials and now this. Getting seriously sick of it. And yes, FAIL for its repeated (ab)use in this trailer. Something epic would've fit much better here.

I've liked the trailers...until now. And this is why you don't get a 20 year old to make a trailer targeting people who could almost be his parents. Yes, Sail = epic fail. All the 'splosions. This is not a Michael Bay film. Otherwise the visuals look sweet. There are so many classics that deserve this treatment. A company could get rich doing nothing else but this.


The thing is that the original sound track is so good and so suited to the visuals, why not use that?

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.
