    quoting a spoiler is twice as dumb as posting a spoiler.

    So is there bullet drop? or just random trajectory (small circle spread / big circle spread)?

    Homefront keeps crashing right after the second time I am in a helicopter and using the gradadelaucher. After that the chopter lands and together with the us army I have to fight my way trough some enemies. The game crashes(stopped responding) everytime. Do you guys have the same problem and if so, how did you fix it?

    Probably the big reason you're finding Red Dawn easter eggs is because the guy that wrote and directed Red Dawn also wrote the script for Homefront. John Milius.

    I myself had no problems with it,Maybe try up dating your sound drivers,I use the on-board AMD/realtek one from the gpu through my AV receiver.Never did try it with the mobo sound .

    uhm nope would have been cool to hear it at The Wall.Wow that maybe a Pink Floyd reference ......

    Good idea. The game is far to short to warrant a pricetag like that. £25, yeah maybe.

    lol Mussels ....That was good.
    Technically it is not a spoiler ,It pretty much tells you this in the opening movie with sec of state Hilary Clinton.I think that movie was posted as a trailer awhile ago.

    Well it does get DLC xbox360 first then PC..No word if it will cost $ I did however see a 09 interview with the lead dude at Chaos Saying the single play would continue with the dlc until they release Home-front 2.

    so does anybosy have any suggestions for update improvements?? I've got a couple but I have been asked to get a list of plausible improvements for Future patches. now I am under the impression the DLC wont cost much if at all. Kind of like borderlands DLC's but not as expensive. anyways if you have real ideas for things that can be improved via patch pm me with them and ill get a list together.

    i got to play the SP of this yesterday.... decent, average graphics (seriously, they were just average on max) with good solid FPS the whole game, minus the bridge levels... but too short. havent had a chance to try MP yet, but the guns felt solid in SP, so MP might be good
