    Mods that needed the original games on Steam to play, Crystal Dynamics could have sold some old Tomb Raider games..

    I don't get it - how is this a problem, but games like OpenMW or iodoom3 were permitted?

    Looking past the industry-standard platitude BS that comes out of PR mouths, it seems these people were actually working with squenix and had some sort of falling out that nobody wants to talk about. Probably under NDA and if they say something, squenix is going to sue them out of existence.

    Ah, yeah that's a good point. But yeah, most open-source cloned games are free. The caveat is the game resources (textures, audio, models, etc) aren't free; they require the original game for that.

    Yes, as I gather they are free to release their work as a game mod--paid or otherwise--anytime they'd like. Licenses to use IP are often very liberal so long as the licensee doesn't intend to go commercial and use the other guy's IP to make a buck. That tends to be where they often draw the line, imo.

    I hope to make a deal to release with both companies benefiting. Would be such a waste looking at Caesar's video.

    Looked very cheap, slap a reshade on it and call it a remaster.

    Bit of a shame. There clearly is interest in 1990's classics.

    These look too good to be just some mods made by some modders in their spare time, the modded games look very professional indeed, was SE helping them in any way with these mods?

    If the interest was 2018's classics ..... (in 2040).... Would you conclude the same ?

    I appreciate but this video is fan made (none from REALTECH). also to note down that this have been made from UNREAL ENGINE 4
    and IF YOU HAVE A HIGH END PLAYABLE GRAPHIC CARD .....please .....DOWNLOAD AND PLAY TO SEE IF MERELY THERE'S A DIFFERENCE FROM SQUARE ENIX STUDIOS AND THIS ONE GUY remastered VERSION... YES there ARE !!!!:

    Please don't take me wrong at least motivate those people that have capabilities of doing things sitting 24/7 in front of their rigs and jobless!
