This last Weekend Confirmed has me even more excited for Homefront
. Just talking about that opening, and how things get more horrifying than (spoiler)mass graves
has got me really curious. That bit from the Kotaku article has me really excited though, oddly enough:
Milius discouraged the game developers' original vision of an adventure that had the player heroically helping the military take back the U.S. He helped them craft something more intimate, a desperate journey by resistance fighters to transport fuel from Colorado to California. In making the story less grandiose, they've also given it more grit.
Just him having them scale the story back so you're not the Single-handed Savior of the United States sounds great. If the game is successful, I'd really love it for them to show us losing and getting pushed back even further...
As for other parts of the show this week... I guess I'm confused as to how Garnett can go from 1 or 2 shows back defending the unarguably high price point of the NGP but then balk at $40 for 3DS games.
