More interested in this than Gears of War 3, probably because its looking really good. But maybe not that fair as Gears hasn't shown that much of SP as of yet.

Yeah, me too. Gears just isn't as impressive now as Gears 1 was for it's time. The warhammer 40k: fire warrior FPS was a guilty pleasure of mine, this looks like it could continue with that trend :D

Still can't get over the subtitle... "Spare Marine"... It sounds like satire, given how overused this stupid character type has become

Goddamn, I think the developers knew what they were doing when they were talking about design in their developer diary.

Not only that, but they totally ripped off Warhammer and Starcraft at the same time! This stuff is totally unoriginal. Shame.

Never played the Warhammer games before but this perspective looks really good

I played Dawn of War, Winter Assault, Dark Crusade and the other expansion, that was enough for me to love the universe without trying to get into the board game and the books.
I have not played Dawn of war II but I did not appreciate what they removed and added however it seems to have made sense a long time ago to have made a third person action Warhammer 40K game but understandably it makes a lot of sense that they took this long and they tried to be as carefull as possible to make the game the best possible to match the dev's vision and follow the rules of the WH40k universe. so I gotta give them respect for that it definetly looks like a must buy day one but I still gotta wait to see how it turns out as these screens are too clean and smell of PC version-itis and despite me owning a PC that can handle this game I am buying the console version only.

What's "too clean?" I see a distinct lack of DOF, but I actually appreciate that. That's usually the first damn thing I turn off. It's so poorly implemented into most games. It just makes shit blurry and hard to see. That's not a cool effect.

Pretty sure Warhammer actually coined the term "Space Marine" back in 1987 so why the fuck should they not use it, they OWN IT. Cliche maybe and I have never been a fan of the universe but it has spawned the imitators, not the other way around.

About the game

    MrWhite Shouldn't be that much of a burden to devs as they iron out the kinks and work out what works and what doesn't. What I worry about is shovelware. That could kill it dead. (37 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Dirt is supposedly incredible, and I can attest to RE7 in VR being amazing and wouldn't play it any other way. I think by drip feeding well implemented VR modes in games is the way to go. (38 minutes ago)

    crookedmind @MikeManiac61: What is the difference in pay-to-play online? i.e. Gold vs Plus (or whatever it's called) (39 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite The way to handle VR at the moment is basically what they've been doing for recent titles like Dirt and RE7. Have the main game, but the VR mode as an addition should you desire. That works. (40 minutes ago)
