I am now excited about Home – Very Excited

I was sent a tip by Naudran earlier about Home and to be perfectly honest I had little interest in reading it. I have read hundreds of stories about Home and very very few of them have been interesting.

However that has all changed very quickly. Imagine you have a Warhawk clan and you are about to challenge your arch enemies. Imagine now getting your entire clan into a room with a scale model of the map and being able to plan tactics by moving planes and people around.

Yes that is exactly what the developers of Warhawk have planned and implemented in Home. To put it in context for the 360 fans. Just before starting a round of Gears of War you all get together in a room and can see a scale model of Clocktower.

You can then visually explain where each of your team mates must go to take out our opponents.

If that is not the coolest thing I have ever heard about Home then I don’t know what is.

I for one welcome our future robotic overlords

  • Nduimiso

    that is admittedly the most awesome thing ive ever heard of, but will it work as well as it sounds?

  • RivaZA

    Oh good god. Planing a strategy will only work for like the first round or so. After that the opposing team will wise up and adapt.

  • LazySAGamer

    @RivaZA, so you are proposing to just fly around like headless chickens instead 😉

    I could see this being implemented in virtually all multi-player games to good effect.

    Maybe Warhawk is not the best example, as you don’t have access to things you need most of the time.

    Warhawk will be better tactically when the 1.3 patch comes out and improves the voice chat, you really need to make plans on the fly.

    I still think the Home idea is good, but not 100% practical for this particular game.

  • That is awesome! I’ll admit,but is it only available to Warhawk?

    I have a feeling we’ll never see this on the XBOX, I mean come on we don’t even see Dashboard theme’s before purchasing them!

    Insomniac and Naughty Dog also said they will be creating rooms in Home for Resistance and Uncharted.

  • Banana hammock

    If one does it they they’ll all do it. You don’t ever want to lag behind your competitors.

    This will work much better for FPS games.

    Not a bad thing, at least it’s the first piece of home that looks mildly interesting. As far as I can tell each developer gets to create their own ‘lobby’ to do whatever they want for their game.

  • JimBob

    This is still a rumour – albeit from a credible source – and should be reported as such.

    I already see all the ‘Waaah!!! Sony promised me a sandtable stratgey warroom and a pony!!!! Where is it???” posts that will be coming when Home launches.

  • LazySAGamer

    @JimBob, fair enough… Wild Rumour tag added 🙂

  • Jeff

    Warhawk is a great game. I set up a nice clan via clan hosting and we are getting pretty well ranked. I think this genre is going to help the PS3 this year.

  • RivaZA

    I say that because in real life this is a good idea. Once you kill them they stay dead, but in the virtual world they respawn.
