    It's good to hear. I wonder if this "remaster" does well, will we see a possibility of the planned MMORPG that this game was a "prequel" to?

    Personally the only modern MMORPG trend that annoys me is the idea that MMOs need to be designed in a way to attract people who don't actually like MMOs. Which to me makes about as much sense as someone trying to figure out a way to get vegetarians to eat at their steakhouse.

    I am so happy to hear this, had it on the ps3 and was thinking of buying it on steam recently- now I'll wait for the remaster!

    And btw, I think those asking for a discount are being extremely petty. If they sell it for $40 dollars (basically half price of a new release) that's a steal.  

    It's an 8 year old game that doesn't need a remaster. There's little reason for anyone who already owns it to buy a remaster at $40.

    $10 for what amounts to an HD texture and shader pack? Maybe I think about it.

    At $40 I'll stick with these perfectly fine graphics.

    What that game needed the most was level scaling, you outlevel an area before you’re half done with it’s quests and content. That, and a working FoV slider is the biggest «lacks» from the original

    I'm not telling you to buy it, I'm saying that crying about a remaster being released for about half the price of a new game and demanding that the developers give it away for "free" to people who already own the original version of the game is petty in the extreme.

    hmmm I own and play the game and it all doesn't look like that by far.

    Those are rather amazing screenshots.

    That's exactly what mine looks like.

    Like I said in my first post, the graphics have aged well. What I didn't say is that they have thanks mostly to their art style. It never tried to be photo-realistic like say, Skyrim did.

    It's the ones that attempted photo realism back in those days that look dated now and would most benefit from a graphics remaster

    All ill say is , it will be be hit with not worth 40$ , and its not .. This could end up bad PR ...

            And they can easily start with gaming platforms like Steam , where we know exactly who bought it ..

     No need to be silly with Oh Oh oH i bought it .. now is there ..

    that's not a bad point, Though I seem to remember It was on Origin as well. I don't know how those companies divulge that info but why not, I guess there wouldn't be a reason NOT to divulge.

    You are so surprising. You buy stock in a video company and you don't realize that they want to make money so they can make you money.

    Well Sovrath , i dont need the money , its simple as that...

     At this point its a fun Hobby , i have investements in near every Pub you can name some of them for 15 years now ..

    Other than the stupid name, I am super hyped for this.  Loved the original (I'm playing through it again the past few weeks) and I've been disappointed SOMETHING hasn't been done with this IP in all these years.  Maybe if this sells well we get an actual sequel?  Please, baby Jesus, make this true.  I just hope it's available on more platforms than the MS store with all the problems PSO 2 has had there.

    Remember, I live in a world where juggalos and yugioh players are real things.

    I have it on PC and the X360 collector's edition. I will buy it again in hopes that it encourages a sequel.
    hopefully it encourages a DLC and a sequel!

    I think, even though they are charging for it, it will sell and it will inspire "at least" a DLC.

    Every forum that I've seen with this game has always fostered the comments that "it's a great game with flaws."

    It didn't do gangbusters in sales (if it did would the studio have crumbled?) but with some years behind it and in hindsight, it was a good game.

    The studio went bankrupt because of mismanagement and the fact that Curt Schilling is a gigantic moronic douche bag who was given a pass on his bad behaviour for years because he was good at baseball.  Game was still great despite this.

    Regardless, I'm sure there are people who are investors in that company who want them to maximize their investments.

    You could be correct in that giving it away will invigorate the IP and then down the line it would make more money. But I suspect there are people who would want them not to give it away.

    In any case, I'd be surprised if this remaster didn't do well. We'll see.

    True, I was listening to a you tube video where the speaker said that EA still has publishing rights.

    They did not slam a door , they will watch , its a catch 22 , if remaster does well .. Now EA is involved ..
     In a perfect world EA , THQI and the consumer end up happy ..

      I love the game , i loved the THQI purchase , i am hoping it all works out ,but i have my reservations , dont get me wrong ..
