Homefront – The Revolution review

The hot potato of gaming, tossed from publisher to publisher, is somehow complete. Homefront: The Revolution [official site] is out today in the US, and then anachronistically, for no bloody sodding reason, delayed for Europe until Friday. (Is there still a shop that even sells PC games?) In development for five long years, can it possibly hold together? The answer for this open-world shooter is…

Vive! Homefront: The Revolution Reappears With Trailer

Face-shooting Red Dawn fanfic Homefront: The Revolution [official site] has had a funny old time. After shutting down Homefront creator Kaos Studios, publishers THQ turned to their Montreal studio for the sequel, then looked to Crytek UK as THQ fell apart. Crytek bought the game and rights in the THQ fire sale and revealed the game at E3 2014. Less than two months later, suffering…

First Look: Homefront – The Revolution

I'm not sure how a Homefront sequel that I didn't really care about became a Crysis game that I really want to play, but that's what I saw the other day. Homefront: The Revolution is Crysis. Hilariously Crysis. So very very Crysis. And yet it's a Crysis game that Crytek haven't even managed to make, despite having all the component parts. Now they are, and…

The Liberty Cell: Homefront – The Revolution

The sequel to Homefront that you probably weren't eagerly anticipating has been announced in the form of a trailer that you can see below. There's no in-game footage but we sent roving reporter Craig 'Craig Pearson' Pearson to get some first-hand impressions and he managed to enage my interest with one phrase: "It's basically a sandbox City 17." Maybe eager anticipation should begin right about…

Homefront 2 To Be Developed By Crytek

Having closed down Homefront developers, Kaos Studios, earlier this year, THQ have had to look elsewhere to create a sequel for the massively disappointing shooter. They seem to be going straight to the top. It has just been announced that the publishers are partnering with Crysis creators, Crytek, for the project. The company, currently rumoured to be working on Timesplitters 4, and certainly developing a…

Byte vs Brick: This Week’s PC Charts

I KEEP saying I'll do this regularly, but something about numbered lists makes me curl into a tiny ball and weep for mother. Anyway, let's do it this week and maybe I'll be a better boy again next week. Here's the top ten best-selling released PC games on Steam last week, in comparison to the top 10 at UK retail. As always, there are some…

Delayed Reaction: Homefront PC Demo

This seems like some pretty bloody odd timing, but perhaps it's THQ taking advantage of a temporary lull in glossy manshoots and seeing if there's room to sell a few more copies of their noisy March release Homefront, which was their own take on CoDiness. The game, made by now-shuttered NYC developer Kaos, sold pretty well but received what could generously be described as a…

Homefront 2 Is Go, Homefront Dev Is Closed

IP! It's all we really want. IP! It's all games really are. IP! It's more precious than gold. IP! Creators don't matter, only owners do. IP! It'll eat your children, and your little dog too. Another Homefront game has been confirmed (to Eurogamer) by THQ, in spite of middling to scathing reviews, which is because it sold pretty well. Sadly, apparently not well enough to…

Spotlight On Biscuit – Homefront Multiplayer

Another week, another Spotlight On Biscuit, wherein we direct you to one of prodigious gaming commenter Total Biscuit's videos for the week, and also discuss a biscuit. This week, it's Homefront Multiplayer and the humble Bourbon biscuit. I wouldn't say I'm starting to regret this idea just yet, but I have realised that there are more weeks in the year than biscuits that I could…

Hands On Preview: Homefront

I've been looking forward to Homefront ever since I saw it at E3 in 2009. Along with Just Cause 2, the demo we saw showed a game with a mad sense of catastrophic glee, set in a refreshingly familiar world of suburban cul-de-sacs and department store carparks. Accompanied by a remotely controlled armoured vehicle, Goliath, it looked like it could be the buddy game of…

New Homefront Trailer Has Many Explosions

Machinima has an exclusive new Homefront trailer. Yes. I'm not sure it's quite as interesting as the more detailed alternate timeline stuff the developers have been putting out that shows how North Korea could successfully invade the USA, but it does feature many explosions. The game's out on March 18th, you know. So soon! The explosions will be ours so soon.

Editorial: THQ’s Online Pass DRM

What do you own? Not "pwn", you nu-gamer young person. But own. What do you pay for that's yours to do with as you wish? Food, clothes, knitting needles. But what about games? When you pay money for a game, do you own it? Increasingly, not in any understood meaning of the word. Like music over the last couple of decades, we're currently sleeping through…

Kim Wrong-Il: Homefront

Is Homefront poorly-timed or perfectly-timed? I'd love to have been a fly on the wall in THQHQ when news broke about the recent violence between North and South Korea. "Does this mean the game's screwed or a guaranteed success?", I imagine a man with expensive business cards saying. No-one at THQHQ actually said that, of course. I'm just imagining what it might have been like.…

Implausotron: Homefront

Hup, hup, quickly now. Over on Eurogamer at the moment is a preview wot I dun wrote about THQ's upcoming COD-like shooter Homefront. Looks promising, but the whole 'North Korea invades America' plot isn't a particularly comfortable or believable concept. The game's definitely THQ trying to hit it out the park rather than hang around in the cheap-seats, though. For more on how the once-beleaguered…

RPS At E3: Homefront

Yesterday I mentioned that there had been two games at E3 this week that had made me laugh out loud at their scale and audacity. The first was Just Cause 2, the second was Kaos Studios' Homefront. The first thing you'll read about Homefront anywhere is that it's written by John Milius, the screenwriter behind Red Dawn and Apocalypse Now. But let's not forget he…
