Homefront Devs Love Dedicated Servers

 Pages PREV 1 2
 

Dedicated servers is the absolute least that should be provided given that THQ will require their now-requisite online code to play online. They've raised the bar for themselves and so far, with this practise, they've fallen short.

green_dude:
Step back in the right direction. Hopefully the game doesn't bomb and scare other devs away from dedicated servers.

Don't worry, it's not the only game using dedicated servers. Even downloadable games like Monday Night Combat have dedicated servers these days. It's only the big guys who use P2P matchmaking because they believe there will be so many people playing that it's cheaper for them.

I saw the trailer for Homefront.

I wondered for a bit: "Where have I seen this kind of nationalist zeal before?"

It took me 30 seconds to realize: "National Socialist Germany."

*slow clap*

Wow. Not only did you miss the entire point of the game, but you managed to throw in the Nazi card as well.

That requires some talent.

I love THQ.

The game plays on nationalism (or 'patriotism' as American nationalists like to call it). You can not deny it.

The game plays on "holy shit, we've been invaded, wouldn't you protect the ones you love from invaders on your home?"

Also, coming from a guy sporting the communist banner as their forum avatar, I'm finding your posts to be quite heavy on the irony.

THQ i would have your babaies, you brought me STALKER, Metro 2033 and a whole other bunch of awesome-sauce.

If it was any other invasion, Americans would not buy it. It is absolutely clear that it plays on patriotism. If you do not see this, you are partial (biased).

I do not see the irony in a Communist speaking out against nationalism.

I'm sure you don't.

If I knew of a way to enlighten you I would do so. For now you will live in darkness.

Wait, doesn't this mean that the company doesn't have to pay for the servers?

IF so, why is anybody not including it then?
