Yes
Not without modding.

I'd recommend waiting until the promised big patch that should be hitting in a few weeks.

It will fix formations been broken among other issues.
>>
>>324150392
You can, on Homeworld 2, which is what remastered version is.

But in my opinion, the original did a lot of things a lot better. They just needed to update the graphics. We lost formations, god dammit which was like half of the fun. And salvaging became a joke.

Let's not pretend how fucking massive assholes the Taiidani were and their use of underhanded tactics and tyrannical rule

>Hiigarans realize that the council is full of shit and dancing to the Taiidan Imperium

>Make a new super flagship (Sajuuk's Wrath) to carry it and their entire fleet straight on top of their capital world, ignoring all of the other civilian worlds and destroy their royal guard fleet
>Rightfully lay waste to their planet
>Galactic council (note, 'Taiidan' council) demands that the Hiigaran empire surrender their fleet and core
>Bentusi acts as middle men and come to retrieve it
>Gets a bit cocky and try their luck at galactic dominance by taking out the Bentusi
>Get absolutely rekt
>Go full "If we can't have it, no one can" with the core and crash Sajuuk's Wrath into the moon to destroy it
>With the entirety of the Hiigaran navy destroyed the Bentusi head home
>The Taiidani then decides to mobilize their entire fleet and genocide the entire Hiigaran race, system by system, leaving no survivors and stealing their planets.
>The council pleaded to the Emperor to stop to no avail.
>They eventually came up with a compromise and had every hiigaran make a choice, get onto a transportship and get exiled to the outer rims or get turned into slaves
>Hiigarans knowing that the Taiidani were assholes, smuggled the their hyperspace core onto one of the ships which the council and taiidan thought was destroyed
>fast forward some centuries and the Taiidani empire has grown even more decadent and corrupt
>Hiigarans un-earth the second core and wants to go home
>Taiidan finds out and genocide them once more

The fact that you're having this argument speaks volumes about how a space RTS game had more depth than fucking any modern AAA game.
>>
>>324158651
You know what I want?

A game where I individually fit and retrofit every ship in my fleet. Because this is what fleet is optimizing ships for a doctrine, and trying to keep them safe. I'd be okay with standard fighters as long as they're not as expendable as they are in HW2. Actually nothing should be as expendable as they are in HW2.

Honestly, the reason i dislike the setting in Desserts is because is more Hiigara/Kusshan shit instead of expanding the lore of the other factions

Nah, as for the Hiigaran violent streaks, guess it runs in them
But who wouldn't be fucking pissy if your home was 90% sand

And for the bentusi attack, I guess the power got to their heads, still riding on the high of taking out their nemesis capital thinking they could do anything they wanted

>>324159586
Yup, when people ask me why I think homeworld is good, I tell them its because of the storytelling and narration, 3D RTS combat and designs comes second

Battlestar Galactica adventure.

You're what's left of your own race, you have nothing more to your name than a mothership containing less than a million people for repopulation who will serve as your crew and some space coordinates of what once was your homeworld according to a prophecy (as in, old datacharts).

It's all based on a story that happened to a tribe in Asia, just put into space.

Yeah, I do have a soft spot for the Kushan/Hiigarans though. But I'd like them to explore the other races/factions as well.
Like who and/or what are the T-mat? etc.
Guess that's for Homeworld 3 to decide when it eventually arrives.
Wasn't blackbird gonna help develop 3 with gearbox when they finished Desserts of Kharak?

The guy who become Taiidan Emperor became crazy brutal after the Hiigaran nuked the homeworld.
Also what the Hiigarans did was basically teleporting to nuke Washington and expect nothing bad will come from it.

I liked the first one and each race have their gimmick when it comes to traveling space.
Second had weird design decisions because the main guy didn't want to make the same game twice and game was essentially unplayable at release.

Yeah, but it was basically a hiroshima/nagasaki solution to prevent an all out war, nipping it in the bud

Didn't know that.

I liked both games, loved them back in the day, but now they feel slow. I don't even enjoy gook click crap. But damn were those games slow, would really benefit from a fast forward button like Defense Grid.

I remember my battleships could jump, not in single player I guess.

I agree some older RTS games have fallen behind in speed a bit.

I simply deal with it using the speed up button in Cataclysm.
I was always a Taiidani/Vaygr person, anyway, so I prefer that campaign, anyway.

I'm pretty excited, but I hope they don't ruin it by making a cheesy over the top sci-fi, and that carrier is not promising.

The remastered would've kindled a neverending discussion if it had not removed everything that made the first game great. If it's going to be similar to remastered then I'm sure the interest will wane pretty quickly.

Also I hope they don't turn it into a story of Sjet, I don't want my favorite game series to end up like SC campaign.

Something about the aircaft carrier/sandcrawler hybrid makes my dick diamonds.

What have they removed?

>>324162758
Formations, salvaging. I mean they're technically there, but just useless.
>>
>>324162718
Yup, shit really sucked when you lost a carrier, destroyer or a cruiser.

Also adds some weight to the whole "every man counts" due to them being close to extinct and all.
>>
>>324162854
loss of formations was stupid, and while I miss the ion ball of death due to no cap on stealing ships, it was the best for balance

If you play to break it, you can break every game. But it's the first time you play counts, you probably didn't even realize that they were just waiting to be captured and you tried several methods to pass them. They could've just tweaked the AI's reactions to being captured, they shouldn't have ruined the whole idea.

The real reason I'm so salty about the subject is that when I salvaged ships I actually felt like I was managing through a hard time for the exiles. Not enough resources, fleets made up of random ships stolen from enemy and such. While the second game is also enjoyable it misses the point from my view. I wanted to cry when my fighter pilot said cabin pressure dropping, I never asked for meh I'll build another squadron.

Actually, it does not. There are plenty of games with amazing voiceacting out there.
In case of Homeworld, while the voiceacting is a huge part of the experience, and it is unquestionably really well done, it was more about EVERYTHING just clinking in place. This is something that happens when "all the planets align", when you get a team that is entirely on the same note and with a really good idea - something that happens less commonly nowdays, I suspect mostly because the teams tend to be bigger, and the management of the projects is more cynical.

You may be right, maybe my goggles are a little to thick, but goddam. I would give so much to play HW1 again for the first time and feel that sense of exploration only to have it crushed when you jump back to the ruined scaffold. That was a level of emotion games haven't really hit lately.

Games like DA: Inquisition etc etc all reach for emotional impact and fail so hard because the characters are two dimensional and archetypal, where as a character in HW1 didn't even have to be shown and you grew attached to them.

Not him, but you really are deluded.

I'll give a chance. Make an ACTUAL argument. What is your issue with them, that makes it, as you claimed, "Halo Wars: Console RTS" edition again. Because that is a really fucking weird thing to say considering that it's clearly a PC game with a PC interface and literally nothing suggesting any kind of console influence what so ever.
Can you actually make a coherent argument about what you find wrong with the game at this point?
I know I can, actually. But I kinda suspect that the other fella is right: you don't really have a clue why you are complaining, you just do it because that is kinda what you fucking morons do. Feel free to prove me wrong.

Actually, no. It isn't. Because they are butchering the original lore, which was one of the best things about the game, to shoehorn the Homeworld iconography into it. Despite the fact that actual story pitch for the original Hardware actually sounded far more interesting.

I'm still curious about the game, and I'm definitely not rulling out the possibility that it will be a neat game after all. But the fact that they set it into the Kharak history was dumb idea on so many levels it's not even fun. And between this decision, and the story of HW2, I'm really starting to doubt that these people know what they are doing, and Homeworld 1 was not just a fucking lucky break.

I can tell you that nothing would make me more happy than being proven wrong and having to take back everything I just said. But from where I'm standing, it looks like one of the most awful ideas in the history of the franchise.

>>324175892
For starters, point to me the part where they say "everybody was fighting". Because the religious conflict has actually ended two hundred years before the discovery of Khar-Toba. You know, the Tor entry (A3) talking about "begging of the age of reason"? Literally second page of the manual? The "everybody was fighting" literally ended up when gunpowder was discovered.
Kharak was united and peaceful LONG before the theory of xenogensis was actually even considered as a scientific possibility.

So no: everybody was NOT fighting, and they the journey to Khar-Toba was NOT bringing everyone together.
Literally everything you stated about that past the "we discovered shit in desert" is wrong. Blue on whine. On the fucking link you gave me. So my question is:
Do you have any actual medical condition that would somehow explain this incomprehensible level of stupidity? And if not:
WHAT THE FUCK ARE YOU DOING?

Homeworld is a good game.

Homeworld Remastered ruins Homeworld by changing it to the Homeworld 2 engine, which fucks up a lot of things.

Relic's history is of making an awesome game that did everything differently, and then steadily ruining every game since by copying more and more from other RTS games instead of sticking to their own thing.

It's not the formations that I miss, it's the A.I. and hit detection in general. Each unit acting as an individual rather than all of them governed by shared A.I., their ability to target different targets, and finally the projectile-based hit detection.

The final part of the three is maybe least gameplay-effecting, but I really miss the spectacle that thing brought up, like watching a Scout accidentally fly into a path of Heavy Cruiser cannon.
