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?
