THQ Stock Drops

Gamasutra reports that THQ's stock price plunged about 25% today, though they add that "a small portion of that decrease has been reversed in after hour trading as of this writing." They speculate this may be due in part to reviews for Homefront, as Metacritic shows the just-released first-person shooter as having scores of 74 (mixed or average) on PC, 72 (mediocre) on Xbox 360, and 76 (generally favorable) on PlayStation3. They note a couple of other factors that may play into this are disappointing sales of the Wii-based uDraw tablet and platformer De Blob 2. Thanks Joao.

Whow, so many posts related to Germany and none of them is entirely correct. Well, I guess that is okay, assuming that most ain't Europeans, not to mention not Germans.
Comparing NK to Germany is total bullshit. Germany had been one of the top 3 industrial nations, had a huge population (considering this era) and was top in science. Not to mention the military tradition, while the Koreans have what? The Korean War from the early 50s?

@ Cutter
While you are correct that Hitler invested a lot into the military, he was nearwhere finished with his preparations. According to their initial plans, they would have needed about 10 more years.

They started the war earlier as they simply couldn't afford it any further, Germany was practically bankrupt. The war financed itself, they plundered what they conquered.

So Germany was no Superpower in 1939, their only real advantage was how they organized their war machine.

So back to Homefront - who cares about some made up stories? I guess the game has other issues, considering the ratings. Too sad that it failed and I'm once more happy that I didn't preorder.
