Gold - Homefront

THQ announces that Homefront is gold, and Kaos Studios' now-complete first-person shooter is on track to meet its promised release dates of March 15 in North America and Europe, March 17 in Australia, and March 18 in the U.K. Word is: "In advance of release, THQ is preparing hundreds of dedicated servers in multiple locations across the globe to support Homefront's epic multiplayer mode." Here's a bit on the game:
2027. A once proud America has fallen, her infrastructure shattered and military in disarray. Crippled by a devastating EMP strike the USA is powerless to resist the ever expanding occupation of a savage, nuclear armed Greater Korean Republic.

Abandoned by her former allies, the United States is a bleak landscape of walled towns and abandoned suburbs. This is a police state where high school stadiums have become detention centers, and shopping malls shelter armored attack vehicles. A once-free people are now prisoners... or collaborators... or revolutionaries.

Actually if I remember correctly they said there will not going to be one because they did not have to make one.
Maybe it took them longer then expected to blow up all those gamestop balloons or something

Oh FFS - what a stupid premise.

Something more believable is another Civil war between the Libertarians who want freedom, and the Neocons and their brainwashed supporters who want to enslave them.

It's a FPS. That's means you run around shooting things. And most often that means checking your brain at the door...

The story is really weird. North Korea manages to take over South Korea, China, Japan, and other countries, before invading the USA. If they somehow invented a super powerful technology before doing so (Nanobots! Super mech walkers! Deflector shields!), then it would make more sense.. but the info so far suggests they just got.... really angry. Anger is power!

Well, so long as the in-game story isn't stupid I can get over a somewhat stupid premise. It's plausible enough to not totally insult your intelligence, and honestly, the only people we can really fight are from the Middle East, and not only has that gotten boring but they have zero chance of a full-scale US invasion.

The idea of a modern war on home turf is an interesting one to play - has a certain impact and gives level designers so many interesting opportunities. But it's just not very plausible right now without bending reality a decent amount.

Danny Bilson, this fellow enjoys talking more than that annoying blonde who never shuts up.

Today Bilson let loose details on a multiplayer demo for THQ’s upcoming shooter Homefront.

“We’re gonna keep doing free demos on stuff going forward where we really want to engage players,” he said.

But here’s the meat and potatoes.

“I mean, there will be a Homefront multiplayer demo. I believe there will.”


So, he believes there will be. It’s not a definite. But it’s something!

It's not just coming to PC, but it's using Steamworks, and because of Steamworks it's getting a ton of PC-exclusive features. Things that either can't be done on consoles or would be too difficult to do on consoles without having Steamworks there to do all the back-end hard work.

Now whether or not it'll be a good game, I have no idea. I loved the BF1942 Desert Combat mod, but Frontlines wasn't very good at all.

It could be worse, they could have went with al qaeda

Using China as the big bad guy would have been a little more believable, they've already destroyed the American industrial base - without even needing to fire one shot.

Sooner or later our symbiotic relationship (they produce it and we buy it) is going to come to an end, and as the number one holder of US debt it's just a mater of time before they send a collections agency after old Uncle Sam.

As for Homefront, they may be too busy to make a demo but the least they could do is release some actual footage of the "final version" being played both single player and multiplayer - and not more of those talking head bullshit trailers with quick edits of eye-candy moments.

Why should they? Who will buy all their industrial production?
