Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Debate and Discourse: AWESOME POST in "Best Korea and Dear Leader's Howitzers", by Synthes
Well, looking at it from a purely numbers and industry standpoint:
24 million North Koreans (the sum of the entire industrial and war-making capacity of the country) versus 49 million South Koreans (the same). Acknowledging that North Korea is the most militarized nation in the world right now.
Now, factoring the inevitable cost of war in human lives and capacity--those two, versus the 128 million Japanese, and an accompanying larger industrial and war-making capacity. It's important to remember, there are a lot more Japanese people than there are Korean people. It's just the nature of reality.
Now, take either the remainder of the Koreans, or the Koreans and Japanese (depending on the terms of Japan's surrender), minus the rising cost in lives, industry and materiel versus 310 million Americans, and, coincidentally, military expenditures equal to or larger than the rest of the world combined and largest economy in the world as well even after a collapse.
Coincidentally, the United States is growing, demographically, faster than any of the aforementioned countries.
So, yeah. Presumably, Homefront 2 will feature North Korea conquering the rest of Earth, the western hemisphere of Mars, the Crab Nebula and the entire galaxy featured in Star Wars. You will play a Martian Freedomfighter opposing the brutal communist occupation, a plot also shared in Battlefield: Bad Company 3 when the Russian Federation (142 million) conquers all of the third and forth dimensions and two-thirds of Imagination Land.
