Nadeo is one of the greatest dev houses ever. They know how to grow and nurture a game community, know when to charge for content and, more importantly, when NOT to. Oh, and their games are fun as hell without having to make the kids leave the room when you're playing.

Not a bad game but I felt Epic had too much input into the game design. PCF were more than capable of making a fun addictive game with replay value. As it is it is too linear and controlled with annoying characters and dialogue which I'm pretty sure is Epics contribution. After I completed it I had no desire to go through it again while Painkiller has been replayed countless times by myself.

This is welcome news. Planetside occupies a space all its own that no other shooter can begin to approach. updated visuals will only make it sweeter.

The IP is approaching a saturation point. People are going to get sick of both the Call of Duty and Modern Warfare brands if either continues to crank out new titles that offer nothing new every year.

I like the weapon acoustics and visual impacts of the rounds, both come together to make it (rifle) look powerful and satisfying. I think a lot of FPS devs overlook that very important aspect of the genre. The weapon HAS to be fun and addicting to use in its own right and not simply something thrown in to complete the illusion of using a weapon.

The type of potato is important. Some types stay an appetizing snowy-white throughout the cooking process while others turn a disgusting grey. Also, keep 'em thin, don't use butter for cooking. Use veg oil or margarine (not the "spread" thats passed off as margarine nowadays which is mainly composed of water, use corn oil margarine).

Much of the PC-vs-Console bullshit would be gone if MS would simply stop its fucking moronic ban on mouse/keyboard control scheme for the 360.

so does this put an end to the know-it-all "journalists" with the headlines of "Homefront's less-than-stellar reception" and other such nonsense?

For once people didn't base their decisions sole on the say-so of an incestuous gaming press.

Good for Kaos, they deserve some success.

This sounds like a game made by CUNTS.

As much shit as Broussard gets for being a lazy prick, at least he knew how to make a fun game. Here we have a bunch of prima-donnas trying to reinvent the wheel. Mirrors Edge? ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME??!!

Just take a white, anglo saxon straight male, tie him up on stage and hurl rocks at him. Oh and make sure his only reply to questions is "I'm sorry" Thats where "debates" from the ultra left end up.

Whoa, Hitler in 3 posts! Is that a record?


Does that qualify as a Godwins law slip?

EDIT: BTW, I seriously doubt the game's lack of a 90+ score has anything to do with the game being plausible or not, hell, Freedom Fighters was even more over-the-top and it turned out to be a gem.

IMO Kaos can make a multiplayer game as good as any developer out today (both Desert Combat and Frontlines MP was great, not to mention they prototyped BF2) . Unfortunately either someone at Kaos or THQ absolutely insists on having both single AND multiplayer. Kaos should be making a game in the same manner DICE made Battlefield, as a MP focused game.

You can watch the first 15 minutes of the game and you will see that's is a console styled first person shooter with a implausible plot:
http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2011-03-15-homefront-review

The plot is an insult to anyone who knows the very basics of North Koreas's situation. North Korea taking over the world, please. They can't feed their people because of the sanctions and their lack of resources.

There was a little country called Germany many years ago that was in the same position....economically and politically. In that scenario it took one maniac with a vision to nearly take over the free world. Also, you are talking about the NK of today, in the game after Kim Jong Ill dies his son opens up dialogue with the west and unites Korea etc. You are then inserted into the game ....20 years from now? Its improbable but hardly implausible.

FINALLY!

A suit with a pair of balls. I have gotten SO sick of corporate pussies kowtowing to minorities and special interest groups by backpedaling and even changing game content to appease these whining babies. And lets be clear, the whining comes from both the left & right.

Once in awhile EA surprises me.

Get used to it, PC games are nearly impossible to sell used nowadays and this will be the last gen for console titles to be transferable.

seems like the right of consumers gets chipped away a little each year. "Fair use of copyrighted material" is scoffed at by the piles of walking shit (aka attorneys) and and now right of second sale is disappearing.

This is what happens when we allow our entire legal system to be controlled by a group that has a vested interest in removing as many consumer rights as possible. Enjoy kids.
