Not the best video I've ever seen (bad editing), but even so... Homeworld!
I have many fond memories of this franchise, and my Collector's Edition is already on its way. My question is...

Is anyone else getting it? (you better ;) )

No, it's an RTS, not a creation simulator.

Okay, so first impressions... Mostly WOWOWOWOWOWOWOWO!!!OMGOMGOIMGOMGOMGOMOGMOGMGOGMGOGMGOGMG!!

All right, fanboying aside, I'm quite impressed with the visuals. A few pet gripes, they probably have to do with the engine. Formations don't really work in either game, a lot of sounds are off, but I hope these are just bugs. Something I do have very fond memories of is the battle chatter, which they seem to have fucked up. The original HW had "fairly iconic" chatter, whereas HW2 is very monotone, and mostly consists of "Under attack. This is a cakewalk. This is a cakewalk. Interceptor squadron under attack."

Still a worthwhile purchase, but they still have work to do.

the game is quite old , so it's hard to compare it to games we got now, i loved playing homeworld, in the good time when there were a lot of STR ( ground control, warcraft 3 , starcraft , age 2 etc...) , HW was a bomb too :)

Actually, I dont think its that hard to compare. With these improvements its really gorgeous and gameplaywise it seems on par with "standard issue" generic RTS games of today, where I mean stuff like C&C or similar games. Of course, the technology for speech logic and unit models has improved, but apart from that...

Anyway, what I actually wanted to say is that many of the good mods have been announced to come to homeworld remastered.
I personally like Tactical Fight Simulator the most, as it is pretty much lightweight but increases the enjoyability enormously by introducing modular weapon systems for all capital ships as well as equipping every fighter craft with missiles and stuff without impacting performance much - Its also very balanced.

Another one is Complex Mod, though I havent played it much since it tended to consume so much memory that the 32bit application regularly ran out of memory... especially when in multiplayer.

I played the original games to death when they were released but there's far too many bugs in this to enjoy right now.

Waiting until it gets fixed until play some more as HW1 is badly broken... Formations not working, support ships trying to lead the charge into battle, sound occasionally bugging out.

Gearbox are aware apparently.

Just checked out HW2 and that works a lot better. They need to fix 1 though.

I like this very much - graphics quality seems almost like its a state of the art game of today.
The only thing that kind of hinders me playing it right now is that I am, how to say... spoiled by the quality of the mods that are available for homeworld 2.
Those are currently not available for the real remastered edition, as the code base fo the game has been thoroughly refactored (still is), so the mods with custom AI and stuff do not work at the moment.
So I wait for the teams to get them out, I want to play Tactical Fleet Simulator :O
