Default Please put HW 1 & 2 on GOG, at least

To be perfectly honest, this is what I feel should be done as soon as possible. Everyone deserves to rediscover one of the best RTS franchises in history, and GOG is THE place to buy classics from.

Please do it.

It would be nice to have the original games untouched on GoG, and to ship them alongside any updated versions of the same game ‐ these titles are gaming bible worthy.

Yes. Making the originals available in their original form on GOG would be a good fast first move.

Signed up just to throw my hat in the pool of support for this. I have innumerable games in my GOG shelf, would love to add the Homeworld games to my long list of classics.

Another vote from me. Smartest thing for Gearbox to do is to get Homeworld 1, 2, and Cataclysm on at least Steam and GOG ASAP. I was never able to get the games working on my computer properly, I'm pretty sure they need some TLC to get 'em working on modern computers (something GOG excels at, I mean just look at System Shock 2). And there's plenty of GOG users that want the game there:

This should be a Polling.
I'm in! Please put Homeworld 1, Catalyst and 2 on GoG. You win a lot of fans and it's a no brainer imo..

Oh sorry, didn't see this thread. Posted one here: http://forums.gearboxsoftware.com/sh...d.php?t=273274

But yes, I will buy on GOG but not Steam. I completely understand having it on Steam, but that's not where I personally want to get my good oldgames. I don't plan on getting AoE2 HD nor Worms Armageddon there; I will wait for a GOG release of AoE2 original + expansions + (hopefully) soundtrack for a cheaper price.


I'll probably gift my copy of HW in one of GOG's many giveaways.

Well, to be fair, it was the community on systemshock.org (Kolya, voodoo47, etc.) and the author of the NewDark patch that kept the game alive all this time, and GOG implemented many of their patches and what not. Still, I think GOG has done good work on other titles like Anachronox, and even though Dungeon Keeper 2 was a bit of a f--k-up at first, they contracted out timeslip to do some mod work and hardware compatibility has greatly increased since. I don't know if the community has kept Homeworld alive or not, but even GOG doens't need to do much to get it to work, it certainly has a place on GOG.
