Back into the swing of things

Been busy these past couple of days. Who knew replacing the power steering pump on a minivan would be so damn difficult? In other news, Osama is dead, a whole 8 years to the day after Bush already declared "Mission Accomplished," quite interesting timing indeed. I don't really have much to blog about at this time. Well, I kinda do:


I bought Homefront for the Xbox (I got it for 40 dollars brand new, no way i was going to pay 65 dollars for it) Unfortunately, it's another one of those games where you need the special code to play online. Complete bullshit. I, of course, had the code; I just hate it how games are now doing this as a way to milk more money from their games. For those of you that don't know, basically it's a one time use code that let's you play the game online, and to get another code, you have to fork out 10-15 extra dollars if you get the game second-hand.

I have been trying to purposefully boycott games like these, and Madden 11 had announced this prior to the game release, so I knew to avoid it. Interesting enough, Homefront was rather mum about having this implemented.

Either way, Homefront is a rather bad game in my opinion, It doesn't really bring anything new to the fps genre. Other than the first game I've found that makes the Unreal Engine look terrible...

  1. Double dipping... sheesh. Expensive enough to charge the even 60$, 70$, whatever the hell they keep upping it to.

  2. You are right ... Homefront is one of the baddest Shooters one the market at the moment. Bad decision to buy this one.

  5. I heard homefront wasnt any good. The intro led me to believe otherwise, really interesting and immersive. But the product placement, blah. I rented the game, and didn't have an online code, so that was pretty awful.

  6. Making a good engine look bad isn't a good quality, I think. Maybe it's just me... Never even heard of homefront.
