Phasmid: Wouldn't be in the least surprised for Homeworld to turn up here. Maybe not a sequel though.
Why wouldn't they allow both to be released here? Where is the logic in that? I've heard that they may not have rights to Cataclysm, but the first two should show up here, I hope.

Oh, and here is the hour-long soundtrack, for those interested: http://www.listenonrepeat.com/watch/?v=EWboEoNGRQw

Sorry, I was imprecise. I wouldn't be surprised if Homeworld and HW2 turned up here. The sequel I was referring to was any planned HW3, not HW2.

Please refer to #56, which references #52 and #54, which collected contain all necessary canon. I cannot stress enough the importance of an UP TO DATE English dictionary. When encountering such advanced high level prose as is in use in this material for the first time, it is inevitable for students to misunderstand a key concept, and failing to admit their inadequacy and ask for my assistance, they resort instead to juvenile argumentation.

But, I forgive you.

Please point to me which words I failed to understand.
Please post proof that the number X of resources used by GOG in 2010 to procure older licenses is smaller than the number X of resources GOG uses now to procure older licenses.
Please post facts or proof and not scripture. While posts 52 and 54 may be canon for you, they ain't for us. So the burden of proof falls upon you to prove them correct, otherwise they are not canon. You do know what canon actually means, right? Otherwise, may I suggest an up-to-date English Dictionary?

P.S. You can't have high level prose. Prose is, by definition, the ordinary language used while talking (some even say in a dull manner), while high level implies usage of more uncommon, often hard to understand words. So you fail (again) at English. But it's ok, not everyone had an English teacher teaching them.
P.P.S. If the juveniles in Canada do try to argument by presenting a theory and defending it, my faith in teenagers may be finally restored. Thank you for that.

Ah, so not only are you ignoring my questions, you are also ignoring your English language failures (in both threads I might add). And you accuse me of juvenile argumentation.

Feel free to prove me wrong, assuming you can of course. Repeating the above quote does not show capabilities for argumentation, only childish tantrums. Take your time, do prepare a proper argument though. I do enjoy a battle of wits, assuming the opponent isn't unarmed.

Seems Gearbox is only bringing the games to Steam, as with the later releases of Borderlands. Wouldn't have expected anything less from these cunts.
No probs, no GOG release just means I get it free from TPB

Did you see this link? http://games.on.net/2013/07/homeworld-hd-remakes-headed-to-pc/
OT here, but that article also led me to this - Hardware: Shipbreakers. Didn't know the Homeworld team had a new RTS in the works. I immediately want it.

PS - Why do I get the feeling from that trailer that the last level will have the Homeworld mothership sticking up out of the sand like the Statue of Liberty at the end of the Planet of the Apes?
Hmm. Would be interested to see where both sites (Gamespot and Games.on.Net) got their information from.

Yeah, of course it's still highly possible that Gearbox would make an incredibly stupid (imo) move and release it Steam-only, despite GOG showing them how much we want it and (hopefully) strong sales projections similar to System Shock 2.

I'd be okay with a release of the originals + soundtracks here (assuming they're compatible or can be made compatible), and a release the HD remakes on Steam, at the same time.

That would still put GOG into serious disadvantage, as I am pretty sure that almost everyone who have the faintest interest in the Homeworld games is also interested in the better looking HD remakes. Well, unless they turn out to be shitty remakes, of course.

A similar situation as with the missing Serious Sam HD remakes in GOG.

Another article: http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2013-07-22-gearbox-touching-up-homeworld-1-and-2-for-steam

It seems like these remasters might go the way of Age of Empires II HD - Steamworks and multiplayer integration. Hopefully the originals come to GOG as well.

I thought the originals could be cheaper (9.99 vs. 20 or 30 bucks, perhaps). Are there HD mods that GOG could include or link to, similar to Baldur's Gate 2?

Anyway, you might be right. We GOG fans could be seriously boned, but f#ck if I won't keep trying to get the good old games to GOG. *salutes the GOG flag* :P
