Default Homefront Game

Homefront is set in a near future America in 2027 when a nuclear-armed Korean People's Army invades the USA. The game is written by John Milius, who co-wrote Apocalypse Now and wrote Red Dawn. The beginning gameplay is reportedly set in Montrose, Colorado.[4]

One of the major portions of the story arc is built around not only the growth of the North Korean forces over the years leading to the year 2027 (the year in which the game takes place), but also the economic downfall of the United States of America, and the unrest that seems to grip the nation before the invasion.[5]

Homefront is speculative fiction, set in a near-future, post peak oil world that features a significantly declined United States, and a united Korea that has built a massive alliance in East Asia. The Gate Corporation (a major private military company) also plays a minor role. The game focuses on the collapse of the United States, subsequent occupation by the Greater Korean Republic - a united Korea under the rule of North Korea - and the American Resistance that fights said occupation. The player is invited to join the American resistance, "using guerrilla tactics, commandeering military vehicles, and utilizing advanced drone technology", but the player may join the North Korean Forces as well but only in multiplayer matches. The game will also feature vehicle based 32 player online warfare using dedicated servers. The game is planned to ship on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC.[6]

[edit] Backstory and TimelineThe antagonists in Homefront were originally intended to be Chinese, but were later replaced by North Koreans for two reasons: a possible backlash by the Chinese Ministry of Culture and the reality of economic interdependence between America and China that made the Chinese "not that scary".[7] Said Tae Kim, a former CIA field agent on the game's backstory, and a consultant: "we went to a very rigorous, academic research process to make sure to not only look at North Korea's current state but to look at historical examples how things could parallel and turn events. History repeats itself. From today to the day the invasion starts in the game, if you combine everything, the odds are very very slim this becomes true. But when you look at the storyline step by step, every step is a coin flip but a plausible step. So once you get there, it's plausible. And from there the next step is plausible as well. Even though the whole thing is fictional, it comes with plausible baby steps."[8]

The finalized version of Homefront's timeline was released at end of January 2011.[9]

I'll probably end up getting it. I lost interest in New Vegas, I'm getting sick of Black Ops, and Forza 3 is just OK.

Sounds like a good story. I read books for stories though.

If you buy a 360 then think about getting a refirbished one from gamestop, maybe with a warrenty if its cheap, here. That way, when it breaks you won't be out as much cash. I've had 3 or 4 with the current one broken (#4 or so I think). Xbox live is like $20ish for 3 months, and you can get forza 3 which is suppose to be better then gran turismo 5, at least for people that are into cars.
If you want a blue ray player, then get the PS3, plus their version of Live is free, but supposedly not as good otherwise. The PS3 is more expensave but I think it's more reliable.

well GT5 only plays on PS3, so PS3. I much prefer the games available on xbox. That's a deeply personal choice though.

I might pick this game up. It could be good but it could also be mediocre. I was really disappointed with New Vegas, I'm still enjoying black ops multiplayer but don't play that much. I'm really stoked to play Portal 2, and duke nukem 4.

Add to that, that GT5 is a mediocre game at best. How it got reviews in the high 80's I'll never know.

I bought the game on launch day and it has pretty much gathered dust since.

Same here. I actually think I traded mine in already. I played it for a few days trying to like it, and couldn't do it. Terrible compared to Forza.

Gt5 had such a piece of **** interface that I returned it. Plus, driving simulators suck. When I drive, I drive based on feel, and no feel equals no fun. I said **** it and stopped playing and went for a ******* real drive. Blah


Borderlands was fun. DNF might be fun snce gearboz rocks

Deus Ex: Revolution is where it's at. Or where it will be at, when it is released this year.

I played Forza 3 more than GT5, but I cant say which I liked better. I think I lose interest in driving games after a week or 2 no matter how good they are.

Fallout New Vegas lost my interest after the update when the sky turns red at the casino. It was ******* stupid and went on for too long, so I just stopped playing.

Call of duty is still my favorite, for now.

The gun arm at 2:02 was taken from Trigun.

Looks like a pretty cool game. Reminds me of a Final Fantasy / Metal gear combo.

Figures they would name a spreading pandmic disease "the Knoxville cough" lol

Looks like a decent game, goes away from the standard:

-Your mission is to kill these people holding these people hostage in this 3rd world country
-Here's all your guns and ****


Instead your fighting for your own life in your own country. I'll pick it up for PC for sure.

My favorite thing about the Deus Ex series is freedom to complete missions how you want. In the earlier games you had many different ways to complete any one mission. Full out run and gun assault, stealth and no killing, computer hacking, many choices depending on the level. Surely this one will provide many play through opportunities. Plus it just looks bad ***.

Gun arm is overused by too many people to say it was stolen from Trigun. I kind of wish it would stop, but its still used to death.
