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!
I looked but couldn't find a thread for this, am I missing it?
Is anyone else giving Homefront a chance just because they're tired of Blops/Battlefield? Here's some details:
-Written by John Milius, who cowrote Red Dawn and Apocalypse Now
-Focuses on near-future timeline where North Korea "unifies" the peninsula/East Asia and invades a crumbled America
-You take the role of an American resistance fighter amidst suburbs and American countryside
-Less emphasis on COD-style "action film" sequences, more on mood and character development
-Large maps support up to 16v16 gameplay
-Dedicated servers on all platforms
-No killstreaks. Players are rewarded with in-game battlepoints for kills, assists, and capturing objectives
-Battlepoints can be spent on-the-fly for new equipment, vehicles, etc
-Games start as infantry vs. infantry and ramp up to drone and vehicle warfare
-Going on a killstreak will give you a "wanted" rating, giving enemy players intel regarding your position and battle point bounties for killing you
-Recon air drone takes pictures to "paint" enemies and make them visible to ground players, giving you assists when they're killed
