I was recommended this game when somebody I follow saw it was on sale but I know that Gearbox has in the past injected their politics into their other products(an example of which is Duke Nukem having a sign or something that says: "Freedom Fries
Now with 50% more Xenophobia."
I've also heard of some instances of Borderlands having some political lines in it.
Is such content in this game?

Homeworld was developed by Relic in 1999 and Gearbox purchased the rights for the series 5-6 years ago and as i know, they remastered Homeworld 1 and Homeworld 2 graphic and sound, but didn't change the gameplay.

Anyway, i still think Homeworld 1 and Homeworld: Emergence (was Cataclysm and was't remastered) are best space RTS to date.

And remastered version have an option to install the original version of H1 and H2 too as i know.
Homeworld: Emergence was't remastered (there is no source code left for it), but the story is between H1 and H2.

H1 and HE worth every penny and if you will buy them, maybe you should try original versions first and then replay remastered :)

that didn't really touch on the question. Question wasn't about the quality of the game, or when it takes place in the Homeworld universe, etc. Gearbox is political, and they have injected their politics into the games they've bought the rights to. Did they politicize it when they remastered it?
Hi there,

I've played HW1 remastered (which I don't recommend due to inserted HW2 scaling), HW1 original, HW2 remastered and HW Emergence (formerly known as Cataclysm (psst... dont tell Blizzard I said that)) and havent found any trace of changed text which transports any political agenda so far.


btw. my political agenda is biased!

Kill the filthy xenos scum!

Sorry but the emperor made me say this...
Surely the solution would be to use the same concept as a multilingual game. So, just as a language option of, say, Spanish, there would be one called: "Without Politics - just the Xenophobia" language option?

Huh, well without too many spoilers, the plot involves a colony rediscovering its homeland.

Xenophobia, colonialism and imperialism are all themes that you could find in the game if you wanted to.

If you find the Civilization games to be too political for you, this will be as well. Or if we're talking movies, you might not want to play this if you were offended by James Cameron's Avatar.
