    THQ's Upcoming Homefront: Half-Life Meets Red Dawn

    Shacknews has a great interview with Rex Dickson, the the brains behind the upcoming THQ and Kaos Studios (Desert Combat anyone?!) shooter called Homefront. They title seems to be heavily weighted towards the single-player aspect of the game but still hopes to have a very strong multi-player facet to it. Shacknews has pics, videos, and more information about the game from one of the people in charge of bringing it to us very soon. They also hope to have a single player review up later today.

    Here's a snip:

    Shacknews: And this is a story you're telling completely in-engine? Are you putting people in this role?

    Rex Dickson: We don't do any cutscenes--any cinematics--outside of our loading screens. Everything is in game. Half-Life 2 is, sort of, our spiritual model for what we want it to be. Keep it in first-person. Never take control of the camera, unless you're doing some explosion or knocking them down, or something like that. We never take control of your camera to tell you a story segment. You have free range of motion in a lot of those sequences.
    Sign me up... this looks insane. You've got to see the trailer video. Go Nao!

    wow - that looks pretty awesome. I like the story line being embedded into a "possible" future as well.

    Will have to keep an eye on this one!

    Not a bad deal I guess. looks like MRSP for the PC is 50.00 and consoles 60.00

    Cool stuff. Thanks for the link Kev... so are they Visa gift cards or something?

    I'm pretty much sold on this game regardless.
