    It would have been 3 months of nothing. My God, I'm thirsty for news. Can't wait to see the first 1-2 rosters, and hopefully a glimpse of the map in june.

    I'm funnily enough even more curious about the WH2 DLC match-up, but that one will take even longer.

    D'uh, of course it can only have mixed reviews! The grognards need this to be bad because otherwise they have to admit that the original RTW wasn't the best game ever and has aged badly.

    Remastering games that old with the simple touch ups it got seems absolutely pointless, not enough to make it that much of an improvement over the originals

    It's a cheap cash grab and nothing else.

    Easy money. Don't blame CA; They need it. Don't want it, don't buy it, as it's not a mainline game.

    I haven't bought it, either. I think modern TW games are better, personally.

    I think we are close to seeing something big, so I went back to take a look at the forums more often, you never know when something might leak unintentionally.

    But I suppose it will be two weeks from now, Rome can still present some performance problems in certain configurations that need a correction.

    And on Saturday the 8th,GW will reveal something secret, this for me combines perfectly well in the calendar with what we hope, maybe they will reveal something that will be shown to us in game3 as well and it will be kind of a joint revelation.

    And I guess all other TW titles are just made for charity, huh? Find it always funny when people complain that something's a "cash grab", d'uh. Capitalism, that's how it works!

    Taking a whole month for marketing was still way to much.

    Rome is basically outsourced to another studio for a large part. Marketing could definitely do something for WH3 next week, in lieux with other Warhammer stuff. Even though the GW things might not even be WH3 related, at all. Which seems likely.

    Yeah, capitalism is very cool, as long as people ready to buy **** companies will produce and sell crap.

    It's another case of not recognizing that different people have different tastes. It might feel like a cash grab to some, and maybe it is, but that doesn't mean there aren't those out there that enjoy it. I personally don't find remastered or rereleased titles all that appealing, but other people do. If there are people happy with this release, then although I have no intention of playing the remaster I am happy, too.

    It's like the whole discussion on "Who should be the next DLC race!" While I would love for it to be my preference, I'm not the only person in line. Other people deserve a bit of attention, too.

    Should have done Medieval 2 remaster, which would have actually filled an open spot or could have been used as bridge for future projects.

    I looked through those out of curiosity, all those negative reviews are from old fans that insist on nitpicking the graphical updates, UI style, usage of modern TW controls or complaining about price. It's pretty funny to read but there's literally no complaints about actual gameplay.

    On the flip side of the coin, it's just as hilarious to read the posts of a bunch of people that have no interest in Rome (which is fine) yet insist on trash talking it for merely existing. It's like y'all don't want other people to have nice things.

    Thankfully between the old grognards that complain about insignificant changes, and the young bloods that only appreciate the flashy, vapid and new; there's a silent majority of players that are just happy to be playing good TW games and reveling in the memes they generate, whether that's Warhammer or Rome: Remastered, and that's the base that CA is targeting. Now if you'll excuse me I'm off to fight the Gauls. Gods... I hate Gauls.

    Cant possibly imagine how anyone can be hyped for a remaster of any kind. It's just such a joke to me, I mean at least if it was a remake... But people keep buying it which is just depressing.

    Rome: Barbarian Invasion is one of my favourite games in the TW series.... but I still can't bring myself to play it again. The older games were sparse in variety and completely devoid of surprises. BI could still teach the newer games about battlemap tactical options, though.
    It's a beta.

    The cool thing about this remaster (and the future medieval 2 remaster I hope) is the modding potential.

    I guess the majority of people here don't know it but there is a limit to the number of factions, settlements and units moders can add in those games and in the remaster this limit has been expanded.

    Are you familiar with mods like third age, call of warhammer, stainless steel and a lot, lot more? Well imagine those mods with more factions, units and cities.

    Screw the AI, diplomacy, graphics and whatever more updates, the important thing here are the mods.

    Is the map moddable? I recall someone saying it might not be because it was hand-crafted rather than procedurally generated. Or so I heard?

    Might be wrong, though.

    Either way, ye, it would be nice.
    Furthermore, I consider that Daemon Prince must be removed.

    It's the same tile-based map as the original, so I don't see why it shouldn't be moddable.

    Why remaster Med2 when Med3 looks like it's going to be the next big historical title?

    I played that game to death back in the day. It was great back then. But I don't want to go back and play it again now. Glad I didn't part with my cash.

    Bohemond for game 3 please!

    There seems to be the misconception that Rome Remastered is some kind of vanity project or a cash grab or something. But the fact of the matter is, Rome 1 was nearly unplayable on modern computers. It took a rather roundabout way to make it start and it keeps crashing during gameplay. The remaster makes it possible to play again, while also giving it proper QoL changes that make the game more fun without changing its original feel. If you don't want to play it, fair enough that's your business of course, but don't go call it a pointless addition to the series.

    I mean, I recall someone mentioning that the devs didn't know just how moddable the game will be because of something like that. But that was, like, early April, shortly after the announcement. So I don't know if any new info came up.

    If I remember correctly Melkor said that the map is fully moddable as is or that Feral is actively looking to provide that function soon.

    Considering original Rome 1 had trouble playing on my modern PC I'm quite happy having the remastered.

    With that said I also am waiting eagerly for some Warhammer news.
  • SakuraHeinzSakuraHeinz Junior Member Registered Users Posts: 3,232
    I spent hundreds of hours in rome 1 as a kid and I have no interest in the remaster and its easy why.

    Because they didnt change enough in the remaster to make it playworthy for me, and the easiest part to remaster would be Campaign map and it still looks extremely bland.


    And yes Warhammer 3 news next week plz!
