Some enterprising types over at fan site Relic News have gone patent-digging. Unearth anything interesting, then lads? YES. They've found that THQ, who now own original Homeworld developers Relic, have picked up the rights to the series from former owners Vivendi (ie Sierra). This isn't confirmation that any new Homeworld titles are in the making, of course, but then they'd hardly go to all the trouble of getting the rights if they weren't going to something with them. As someone who only last month was playing the original and remarked aloud "could really do with another of these fantastic games", this is truly exciting news.

Obvious truth: the planet is in the grips of a dire climate crisis. Science tells us that we have a decade — at the most — before the Earth hits a point of no return: a rise in global temperatures 1.5 degrees above pre-industrial levels. If we don't prevent that from happening, coastal communities will be destroyed by rising sea levels. Extreme heatwaves will become more commonplace, causing water and food shortages. The planet's biodiversity will suffer. And so will we.
There's no better combo than the internet and dumb stuff, and when you add streaming to the mix, naturally some people will need to be removed for their own good.
