        If your on the fence about a game why on earth would you preorder it?

          It looked fine until about a week ago when everyone in the Chatty started saying it looked like crap. :[

            The chatty doesn't exactly have the best track record. I'm sure it will be fine - and hey, you got Metro 2033 out of it as well!

              I found some videos on youtube showing actual gameplay of the campaign. The game is looking to be pretty damn fun. Graphics could be better but it's nowhere near as bad as the Godfather.

                Edge Magazine gave it a 5/10.

                Not sure how much stock you may want to put in that though.

      Looking forward to Homefront SP. If MP is decent, then that's a bonus.

      Guess there's no good game coming out. I've seen enough of HomeFront youtubes to know what boring game play is in store for everyone. Even the multiplayer looks awful. THQ is dumping so much money into this games advertising, and it'll probably be a mediocre game. It's already gotten a 5/10 in a review so that's not starting off very well.

      woo, ar tonelico! I was just thinking the other night that I hadn't heard anything and wondered if I missed the news that it was released here.

      We had the launch party for Homefront last night. Glad to see our little game going out into the world. Hope you like it.

          This game is 1000x better than Frontlines. I'm very proud of the gains we've made over the last 3 years.

            I successfully convinced 8 co-workers to buy the 360 version of the game with me based on the fun we all had with Frontlines. Please, please, please don't make me the office pariah! ;)

            I'm excited. Although I couldn't download it on steam this morning so I'll have to wait until tmw. I have terrible download speed in Hawaii.

      Someone said the single-player is about 4 hours long. If true, the multi better be amazing.

      I believe Capcom canceled the North American release of MotoGP 10/11 on Xbox 360.
