GameZone's Dakota Grabowski sits down for an interview with THQ Creative Director Sean Dunn, to talk about their upcoming shooter, Homefront.
Only thing on PC that is interesting is GFWL.
I hope that was sarcasm, GFWL is trash, pretty sure this will use Steamworks, its becoming a trend with THQ. On topic, good to hear about the PC development: "The game is being developed entirely as a PC game. All the resolution support, all the bells and whistles, DirectX 11, dedicated servers, custom servers and everything you want from a PC standpoint. We aren’t trying to shove console sensibilities on top of PC gamers.”
"Dedicated servers allow us to ensure that we have fast machines they are running on, that we have them on locations local to where you are and not playing a dude from Shanghai and he is kicking everyone’s ass because he’s the host." I enjoyed Bioshock 2... the multi sucked as it was on a host computer and not a dedicated server. Ya when you where the host you kick ass... and there is around 20 PC players mostly in Europe... nothing but lag for me in North America. Sounds good... wait and see this time... lol. :D
I do enjoy Impulse, but Steam is where it is at.
insane game deals and great content, yea wasn't a fan at first but now 99% of my PC games come from Steam.
I have never really heard of this game....I do prefur Steam over Impluse,
Glad to hear they aren't slagging off the PC version
I don't know anything about Impulse. Steam has bee great though. Sadly my computer isn't up to snuff for playing newer games. I wish could afford to keep updating, but since I can't I mostly game on consoles now. This game sounds interesting though.
There's like 100+ games on Steam from early 00's and even before that you can play.
Yeah, like I believe that after Frontlines.
It's very good to see THQ really do the necessary things to build a quality PC game versus some crap port that won't sale well on the PC then hear the usual blame it on Piracy talk. Sorry but PC gamers don't buy crappy games. So far Homefront is heading in the right direction as every preview I read Homefront gets better and better. Me and a lot of other PC gamers will be looking forward to buying Homefront only on STEAM. Keep up the good work.
Actually one of the few games I am still looking forward to.
“ The PC is an entirely self-developed product. It’s not a simple port. We have all the first-person cockpits in the vehicles in the PC that’s not present in the console versions. All the vehicles are played third-person in the console versions. You have the option to go first-person or third-person in the PC version. The game will be balanced differently. Obviously sniper rifles, assault rifles and weapon damages will have their own branches of paths, but the content will all be the same with the exception of the first-person cockpits. The game is being developed entirely as a PC game. All the resolution support, all the bells and whistles, DirectX 11, dedicated servers, custom servers and everything you want from a PC standpoint. We aren’t trying to shove console sensibilities on top of PC gamers.” but honestly...this is what we expect...it should be a given....what about mods???
Sounds like the PC experience can differ in the gameplay but hopefully, the campaign and MP designs are the same on PC and console.
