1UP: Homefront Preview

In a post-apocalyptic world, energy is scarce and Koreans are aggressive. This is the premise behind THQ's upcoming shooter, Homefront, on the horizon for PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3. You play the role resistance fighter in a future America that's been occupied by North Korean forces following a worldwide energy shortage. The DPRK controls the oil and gas reserves, so the resistance is basically living off the grid, just trying to survive, while mounting what rebellion they can.

The story is too old to be commented.

Now will the North Koreans like this game or threaten to set off a missle if its released?

I mean on the one hand the NKs have conquered America which makes them look good. But on the other hand the entire game will be about a rag tag group of american nobodies kickin their azz which will make them look bad.

I suspect they will protest...maybe not set off a missle since they are going to do that anyway, but I am fairly sure they will say this is proof of how everyone is mean and picks on them.

One of these days we need someone from big corporations to get mad and protest when the bad guy is the cliche CEO of a big corporation. Eventually only aliens, monsters and ghost will be acceptable bad guys... until the aliens come down and correct us that is.
