Battlefleet Gothic and Total War.
« on: January 29, 2015, 12:30:52 PM »
While we were gone two new 40K computer games were announced.

Battlefleet Gothic: Armada

http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2015/01/21/first-look-battlefleet-gothic-armada/

Total War: Warhammer
http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2015/01/14/its-time-total-war-warhammer-confirmed/

Armada certainly looks interesting with the orders/execution process.

I'm going to enjoy Total War Warhammer.  Seeing how they will do magic will be very interesting, I especially looking forward to Lizardmen!
Play more games, paint more models...

Total War Warhammer sounds like a great idea and I want it.  BG:A sounds good too.  About time the specialist games got some love.

I like that they are keeping the Specialist games alive through video games.  I wonder when we will be getting Epic.
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!!!

Really soon I hope.  Hell, I'd kill for a necromunda game.

Mordheim is under development currently (early access available) for that kind of feel.

GW seem to be going mad with the licensing for video games recently don't they?

I think they are seeing that the success from Dawn of War was not a one off thing.  I know DoW brought in a good number of new hobbyists, so by branching out and licencing new games, they will be able to draw even more people in.  Hell, this could mean that there might be enough demand for them to redo BFG.

That'd be sweet.
I don't have much love for the warhammer fantasy setting anymore, but I'm really looking to see what they'll do with BFG!

I spent an embarrassing amount of time playing Rome: Total War, when this comes out I may as well get a catheter bag and a nutrient drip.

The Lord of Change was very interesting. Unless it was Tzeentch itself popping in for a cameo.

Well that trailer sure look epic but for me it's kinda hard to get into it without know the fantasy battle fluff ^^ and i'm not really a fan of the total war type of gameplay.

Thanks I didnt know about the BFG it sounds really interesting and in one article mentioned a 2 player co-op I might be able to get my friend in to.

I love Shogun total war 1 and 2 and the expansions so when I heard about Warhammer total war I was really excited. I'm not overly interested in the table top game but if high elves become playable I'll be picking up a copy for sure.
