    Where all things matter

    Today, Deep Silver has announced Homefront The Revolution. It is an open world first-person shooter, being released for Microsoft Windows, Linux, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. It is currently being developed by Crytek UK, and is expected to be released in 2015, but the date is currently unknown.

    This is a big step from the prequel (Homefront), since now that they're introducing open world. This is going to be a huge factor for this great series. I hope they go out as long as Far Cry in the end, and not mess up like other shooters (COD).

    I probably should okay through the original homefront one of these days. It was another of those games I gave to my brother, saw him play a few hours of and never bothered to properly go through the lot myself.

    Anyway where the first was partially restrained this looks like it has gone full "by USian nutjobs that fear invasion for USian nutjobs that fear invasion", and as it will probably try to be a COD clone again I doubt we will even see an engine worth looking at.

    "Homefront 2!"

    I don't think there's any sort of demand for a sequel, but then I guess that's never stopped companies before.

    Ninja Gaiden reboot and Saints Row were both popular franchises. This is a single game that was kind of well received but ultimately failed to go anywhere, I do not follow.

    Huh. Homefront wasn't all that good from what I recall, don't see why anyone would want a sequel or a second game or anything. Meh, maybe Crytek will do a better job I guess.

    They were indeed popular, but nobody really asked for a Saints Row 4. Saints Row 3 was an exception because it still carried a little bit of gang relation, but 4 shouldn't have even been considered in the making. I know people play Saints Row series for fun, but it left it main plot which people didn't like about Saints Row 4.

    Also, Nobody asked for a Ninja Gaiden 3, but it came, and pulled it off quite well on the Wii U, but as for 7th gen, I knew Ninja Gaiden 3 was gonna get a thumbs down. NG3 felt like Asura Wrath with the fast paced acton, but without the Impact to give it the Big bang for the 7th gen. Now the Wii U version was great, but the only reason it was good, was because of the touchpad, you probably felt like you could do something, and that was innovative, which made it more interesting.

    Nobody asked for a sequel to a popular and well-liked franchise?

    Speak for yourself.


    "I don't like the direction it took." = Nobody asked for it

    I don't think it works that way, sonny.

    SR1 = Had a strong plot
    SR2 = Still going strong
    SR3 = Amazing game, but what happen to the story?
    SR4 = Orginally SR3 DLC... Boom... that my friend is a no no.

    Pffffffffffft no.

    If you think the Saints Row series ever had strong plots, you might want to pick up a book sometime.

    You also don't seem to understand that "I don't like how the story/game/etc. turned out" in no way equals "Nobody asked for it," especially considering that nobody (you excluded, I suppose) played Saints Row for the, uh, "plot."

    Besides, if you can't have fun slapping on power armor and blasting through an alien mothership as Stan Bush's "The Touch" blares in the background, I pity you and the sad life you must live.

    Saints Row 4 is a really fun game. Maybe people who were really invested in the "Gangsta" theme of the first two games (and I'm speaking as a fan of SR2) will be disappointed, but I really enjoy seeing the series just embrace the silliness. Plus, it's great as a full on superhero sandbox.

    I'd definitely recommend it if you see it on sale.

    Wasn't saints row 4 DLC that got turned into a whole game?

    As others have said though sub par sequels, or sequels you did not care much for, are not the same as "nobody asked for". I would say something like "there are loads of people" but I risk invoking megaman fandom logic if I do that.

    See.. I personally dislike the "Gangsta" culture and can't get into GTA at all because of it.. So this one may be right up my ally.

    And after watching that video.. I defentily need to try the game.


    "The Touch" should be played during every heroic rampage...

    Because Far Cry, Just Cause, Fallout, Mercenaries, Dead Rising and any other number of games do not exist and have already been demonstrated to be good?

    How do I have a sad life? All I said was nobody asked for SR4. Also I never said the series was bad? The series is fun as hell, but it just forgot the plot. Also about the plot, the plot was strong to be the only gang related game on console thus why I said it.

    The sad life thing is a fairly popular device, it is basically the equivalent of "what is not to love?".

    Well liked game ends, dev has not stated they have been postponing work on another series and the ubergame has not yet been made.... how does that translate into "nobody asked for SR4". Thus such a statement becomes silly and one tends to get called on such things around here.

    Saints Row about gangsters... it might have started out somewhat like that but most seemed to peg it as the anti GTA/where GTA turned towards gritty und realistic the Saints Row series embraced the madness.

    Thanks I did not know that. Also, ok well I'll be more cautious on the wordplay from now on. I tend to say negative things without acknowledging it, which give me a bad rep, which I have no intention to bring to the table... Sorry about that.

    Not sure how my comment of Gangsta games *as in relation to GTA* has... anything to do with those games....
