Turkey Day News Digest

While America was spending the day gorging themselves on turkey, pumpkin pie, and football, much of the video game world was fast asleep.  However, just because American developers were busy taking part in the annual ritual of glutony we call Thanksgiving that doesn't mean that everything ground to a halt.  Instead, there were a couple of tidbits that came out today including the first look at Homefront gameplay and a new game out of Aksys games.

News has been flying around of late about Homefront, the upcoming America defense game out of Kaos studios and THQ.  Following the announcement of an official date and a developer diary earlier this week, the first gameplay trailer since E3 hit the net today.  It showcases some pretty uncomfortable scenes in the beginning and what appears to be AI which is a touch on the sketchy side at this point.  Nonetheless, it is probably worth a look.

Homefront will release on PS3, Xbox 360, and PC on March 8th in America, March 10th in Australia, and March 10th in Europe.


Today Aksys Games, a Japanese developer announced Jikandia: The Timeless Land.  The PSP game will force players to once again save the world from an evil force which has overwhelmed it, although this time there are a couple of twists which actually make the game unique.  For one, every dungeon will allow players to set their own time limit.  The more time you alot for the dungeon the more rewards you will receive, but also the harder it will be.  The time spent in each dungeon even changes which story events are unlocked, allowing for a decent amount of replayability,

Players will be able to journey to Jikandia next spring and fight with up to four of their friends while there.
