If you haven't heard about Homefront's story and would like to watch the dev's talk about it, go here. If you don't want to, I'll sum it up for you:

N. Korea takes over S. Korea and becomes one solid "Korea." More countries in the Pacific start joining the Korea's cause and threaten the US and its allies. An EMP goes off over the US and destroys all electronics, leading to an invasion and occupation of the US.

I haven't blogged in a while, so this story may have already been addressed, but I feel motivated to comment on the topic.

If you haven't been reading the news lately, tensions between N. Korea and S. Korea have been somewhat tense [read: fucking nuts] since N. Korea allegedly sunk a warship 8 months ago and recently bombed the island of Yeonpyeong http://www.comcast.net/articles/news-general/20101126/AS.Koreas.Clash/.

How ridiculous is it that these escalations are happening at a time where a video game's storyline is damn close to what is happening in real life? I suppose these things happen when you base a story on a "what if" situation, but this is almost crazy.

If the Korea's really do go to war, I fear for the rest of the world. Both Koreas, i believe, have access to nuclear weapons. If even one nuke goes off, nuclear radiation will spread across the globe.

I think we better start digging.

Not really, but this is weird. Wouldn't you agree?

So, finally, after owning my XPS M1530 Laptop for about, oh, around 6-9 months now, it is now out of date, thanks to the system requirements of Borderlands wanting a GeForce 9 series to run it.

Thank you oh so much Borderlands for making me feel like I can't buy a PC anymore and feel up to date week in and week out.

But don't worry. I've learned my lesson from you. The next laptop I buy? Will be a bloody MacBook Pro with BootCamp. WHERE IS YOUR SPAGHETTI MONSTER GOD NOW????


Before people get all fanboyish (or after even), I enjoyed this game. It truly made you feel like the sort of badass that anyone that gained superpowers after being normal for a while would feel. These are some random encounters/bugs/wtf's that I saw or experienced while playing the game, and I thought I should share.

*A person, grieving over all that they've lost, suddenly springs up out of no where, snaps a picture of me, and immediately falls back down to their knees and continues grieving.

*Somehow, a shock from a human defibrillator would heal a/multiple bullet wound(s).

*Attempting to Thunder Drop from roughly a 6-story building onto a group of enemies, but suddenly hitting the ground with no shockwave or thunder effect happening.

*The inability to walk up some El Train stairs where you suddenly walk toward one of the railings and begin to hang off of it.

*A city cop suddenly going on a rampage and began to shoot normal civilians after battling enemies. Clearly the job had gotten to him.


Anybody else go through some weird shite on the streets of Empire City?

This may not be the right place to ask this question, although I could definitely use an answer to it. I may or may not be doing a presentation about videogame beta testing in my technology class on thursday (which is technically tomorrow at this point) and there's no exact website in which to find this information (but perhaps I'm looking in the wrong place).

So someone tell me: what exactly is the difference between pre-alpha/alpha and beta/closed beta/open beta?

Whoever has the most LEGITIMATE answer that would make perfect sense to mindless freshman, i promise to quote you in my powerpoint using your username. I'll weed some stuff out so it looks presentable, but YOU COULD BE FAMOUS (in my technology class)!!!!

danke destructoid.

I don't understand it. They have a built in feature that allows you to view videos that (you believe) are up to date. They give you links to stories that (you pray) are current. Now can someone tell me why comcast.net and probably any other service provider, which provides news for you to read while you mozy on through your emails, refuses to give you current news.

I have recently fallen into this pitfall with a previous c-blog i posted. Comcast alerted me to the news (which I believed was current) who the new director of the future Bioshock movie was. If you're not aware of said news story, here. Now as of the posting of this blog, it says the story on comcast was posted 7 hours ago. Really? Are you just digging for news just old enough that nobody would remember reading it? Or are you too lazy to do another story on the starving children in Africa? Or the crisis in the Middle East? Because, believe me, you could probably write all day on those topics and never run out of stories.

Now I ask you, distinguished Destructoid Army: Why the FUCK won't someone stop this from happening?
