Love bloodbowl conceptually. Just hope this is a bit more approachable with the interface and turorials than the first attempt :)

Dumb sport. Well, to each nation its own.

All sports are dumb whether you're throwing a ball, whacking a ball, running a ball, or kicking a ball.

I like the visuals. Could be some nice mindless fun on the weekend

What does that have to do with anything? Especially considering this is a turn based strategy and risk management game, not actually a football (hand lemon?) game.

Also, if it's nything like the first version, and sticks to the real blood bowl rules, it's NOT a bit of fun for the weekend. It's hard as hell, and getting in to it and playing effectively is not something you just do. It requires strategy and experience. Just look at what a clusterfuck the polaris Blood Bowl tournament was, TotalBiscuit seemed to be the only one that even understood the game :P

Uh.. you could totally describe football as a turn based, risk management game.

The players usually stop and roll dice when making a pass or running past another player, do they? Mr. Funny man :P

No but you replace the rolling of dice with the physical part of the sport :P

JUST SAYIN'

I know they're different. I think there's a reason that it's based on American Football though.

Considering the rules i think you could do it just as well with hockey or soccer (aka actual football). It fits very well thematically though, no doubt :)

This is that NFL Blitz kind of fun I've been looking for. I'll probably be getting my hands on this.

Actual football? No, actual drama class. Best performances ever. Never has a flop been so believable. The flopping to scoring ratio is too damn high!

Its a sport where you kick a ball with your feet. Football. American football is a game where you toss a lemon-shaped leather thing with your hands, have huge homoerotic dogpiles and possibly brak your spine. One is clearly deserving of the title football, the other not so much.

A ball doesn't have to be a sphere dude. A football is not the only non-spherical ball in sports.

Football was originally a generic term used to described any medieval sport not played on horseback. You're playing on foot. The word "Soccer" was invented by the British, and it's slang for "Association Football." Americans didn't invent the name "soccer," or steal the name "football." We just kept it. Just like the Australians.

Learn some history.. then talk some shit.

Football is very analogous to a turn based strategy game.

Not really trying to smack talk american football, i just don't think the name really describes the game. The term Football just better describes what's going on in soccer. Not that i particularly like soccer, just saying :P

About the game

    Tinks during the 64 era Nintendo at least had Rare in their prime, but it was the start of real painful gaps in content. (1 Hour ago)
  • Tinks
    Tinks if you skipped the 64, Gamecube and Wii you may not feel their software issues the same as others. From what they've shown so far they've done little to correct their previous console issues. (1 Hour ago)

    GriftGFX I don't think Nintendo can or will fit the mold he expects them to though. They never have, really. (2 Hours ago)

    GriftGFX Jim always presents a solid argument. I think Nintendo has more wiggle room with this thing than people think if the market responds poorly to it. A portable SKU for example. (2 Hours ago)
