Welcome to February, 2015’s game of the month, Homeworld: Cataclysm! This is my first time ever playing through Cataclysm, and I tried to come at it from a fresh perspective, rather than letting any feelings I have about the original Homeworld cloud my judgement. What I found — after finishing the excellent tutorials beforehand — was a game that’s wonderfully tactical, fantastically paced and visually visceral. I had a great time with this first mission, and I can’t wait to play more.

  1. I went hunting for my copy since it can work on Win7 and I found my copies of Homeworld 1 & 2 but no Cataclysm. Arg. I am afraid to watch this since I cannot locate a copy to play and that could hurt to watch but be unable to play.. Just before the remastered versions come out later this month.

  2. You see Brian, you end up liking Cataclysm, yet have a prejudice against the original game, which has the same kind of gameplay and is overall better game.

  3. Regarding the question about continuity: To be honest, I absolutely support the opinion that HW:C is actually the game that does follow the canon established by the first game. After all, this is a direct continuation of the HW1’s game mechanics. Just look at the resource ships. And then have a look at HW2’s resource ships. There are interesting articles on this topic, so if anyone wants, I’ll gladly link them here.

  4. Cataclysm being canon would also explain why there was only one Bentusi-Cityship left in Homeworld 2.

    1. I love Homeworld and cannot wait for the release. But it has been over 10 years. How in the heck do you remember this stuff? I thought I knew my stuff but the comments on this thread indicate I don’t know jack.

Chime In!
