      The concept of Homefront is still deeply offensive to me.

      The North Korean people don't deserve to be demonized in such a way as this series has portrayed them. The North Korean caricatures from the first game (yes, I know it was a different studio) were just awful. They were shown as inhuman monsters.

      The regime is most definitely a corrupt group of assholes, but the North Korean people are victims; we shouldn't be looking at them as some kind of threat. :(

        It seems like a weird choice for an enemy. Sure the regime is evil; the country is so backwater that there is no way they could become a threat on par with Nazi Germany.

            Yeah I know. I personally wish it was some invented group or aliens. I'm not a big fan of slaughtering people just because of their nationality is the evil flavor of the month.

              I haven't played Homefront. Are you actually slaughtering them or are they fighting back?

            It's a game that demonizes a victimized people.

            Homefront is the ultimate expression of Yellow Peril.

      I love the Red Dawn feel of these kind of games like Freedom Fighters. However Homefront was a steaming pile of dog shit, fuck this sequel so hard. I will only try this game when it becomes a bargain basement sale for $1.99.

      I don't give a shit that it's a different developer that fucking title will forever tainted.

        Yeah I really like the trailer, the first E3 footage was awesome I am looking forward to it.

        I never played the first Homefront so the name means nothing to me, I hope this one will be good.

        The first E3 vid had a HL2 vibe to me which I really dug.
