In case you're unfamiliar, Homefront posits a near history in which North Korea, the world's most scary/interesting totalitarian nightmare, gets it together to invade the United States. It's a far-fetched but fascinating scenario, especially as fodder for a video game.
I'm probably as excited for Homefront as any game coming out, and not just because they sold me amusing tacos once. Here are two reasons I'm going to gert Homefront when it launches:
1) A personal interest in North Korea: Those people over there are weird.
2) I'm really hoping THQ's focus on more "core" titles like Homefront pays off. Kinect, Move and Facebook games are fun and all, but we need developers and publishers focused on the "real" gamers too. I hope this works out for them.
Anyway, check out this hands-on Homefront video in action.
