One small comment...the warp portal isn't nearly chaotic enough.  It should literally look like the gate to hell!...probably. :P

It's the same style as used in the Dawn of War games. I'd say that the portal should only look like a portal to hell when something is going drastically wrong, such as an engine malfunction or trying to jump during a warp event/storm/breach. So there.  :P

Total War is coming along well.
http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2015/06/19/total-war-warhammer-units/#more-296363

Quote
“We’re setting it in the Old World which is – if you imagine the Warhammer universe, the Old World is the centre – the big middle bit. We’re going to have four playable factions. Greenskins, Dwarfs, Empire and the Vampire Counts which I’m really happy about.” (Mann was mostly a 40K player but on his forays into Warhammer the Vampire Counts were his faction of choice.)

“You start with your campaign gameplay. It’s the sandbox style, so you can choose to do what you want, but we’re setting you up with the scenarios like the Empire hate the Orcs, right? That’s just standard. Actually, I think it’s more that the Orcs hate everyone and the Empire have to deal with that. Every faction’s going to play very differently. Previously we had subtle differences between factions – different building trees and [so on] – that’s stuff you’ll see but it’s more pronounced.

“For example, the Greenskins aren’t really that into taxation – they won’t be going round people’s houses, knocking politely and saying ‘Can I have my tithes please?’ They just find someone else’s village and take it. They’re more about warfare and fighting.

“We’re bringing the Warhammer lore back into this. We’ve got something called a Waaaaaagh which comes out and that’s if an orc war boss keeps doing really well and winning battles, once that happens you build up momentum and more Goblins and Orcs start following you on the campaign map. Suddenly you’re charging through enemy lands with a giant force.

“The Empire are much more political and there’s a lot more skullduggery. Karl Franz himself – he wasn’t the first choice to be the Emperor so you’ve got that reticence towards him as the leader of the Empire factions. There’s more politics, there’s a more standard expansion. Then there’s the Dwarfs and Vampire Counts, which we’ll go into more depth later, but they have unique playstyles as well.

Drop date for Total War is April 28 so plenty of time to save up the millions of dollars it will cost.

They have started recruiting for the Closed Alpha of BFG

If there is anything that recent politics has taught us, it is that quotes taken out of context can mean what ever you want them to.
Well I always liked the globals...
I knew I had fans!!!

BFG is available for pre-order, and if you order by Friday you will get a 10% discount (a whole $5) as well as receive the Space Marine DLC for free.

I've got my order in, do you?

Yeah, I had to explain that to my wife seeing as how it was her credit card I used to pay for it.  Paying for a game before it comes out is a thing, and it is cheaper if you do it.

What platforms is it coming out for again?  Any console versions?  PS4 by any chance?

Least Steam has a refund capability now so preordering isn't a death sentence if the game comes out crap.

As long as it is withing 2 weeks or less than 120 minutes of game play.  I found that out after I played 4 hours of Blood Bowl 2 and hated the game.  The issue with Blood Bowl, though, was that it was only 2 actual games played.

I got a few games in tonight before I went out to my weekly game night, and I enjoy it.  My biggest problem is that I have to get my mind back into RTS strategy.  I've been playing too much tanks recently.

Also, it'll be nice when more people get into the multiplayer.  I had a few games with a brand new fleet against a player that had levelled up, and fighting against a Cruiser with a pair of Light Cruisers... yeah, didn't go well!
