Dark Millennium Online

ANOTHER huge Warhammer 40K-game is in the making! Warhammer 40, 000 Dark Millennium Online is looking to become a truly epic experience, but will I ever play it?

Yes, it surely looks like a real piece of work (in a good way), and the idea of a huge Warhammer 40, 000 MMO honestly sends shivers down my spine. Even though I don’t play MMO’s. Oh, you want a reason for this do you? Well, it’s as simple as this: I’m a gamer, but not a hardcore gamer. At all. Which means that paying to play, for each new month of gaming, is out of the question. The question is if this new game, revolving around a phenomenon that I’m truly enthusiastic about, will be able to melt my MMO-hostile heart. The fact that you seemingly can play as a Black Templar could strongly contribute to the melting process. I’m looking forward to new clips, that’s for sure!

Below is a video showing off the first playable race; The Imperium Of Man.

Warhammer 40, 000 – Space Marine

Words can simply not express how excited I am about the new Warhammer 40, 000 video game: Space Marine.

It’s…just…so…GLORIOUS! So far I’ve made sure to get every notable Warhammer 40K-title for the PC, including Dawn Of War (with expansions) and Dawn Of War II, and also Fire Warrior. Space Marine will not be an exception. The action and graphical style seems to be extremely true to the Warhammer 40K universe, just like we, the fans, want it. I only have one thing to criticise from the trailer: “I do not fight for victory,…”? Whaaaght??! To admit defeat is to blaspheme againt The Emperor!

I understand what they mean, but a Space Marine just wouldn’t say that, especially not an Ultramarine. They have undying faith in The Emperor and the survival of the imperium; to admit that they are fighting a losing battle would be considered heresy. That’s all I’m saying. Will I care if that quote is transferred to the actual game? Hardly.

Ultramarines – The movie

Okay, so I’m fairly excited about this new movie, you’ve probably heard of it: Ultramarines – A Warhammer 40, 000 movie. If you haven’t already, why not take a look?

Looks promising to me, but as a hardcore fan of the Space Marines, I’m also prepared to be mercyless in my judgement when the movie is released on November 29. The only weaknesses i smell in the trailers are, first of all, the graphics, which are a bit varying in quality, and secondly the script. I understand that they are trying to reach a broader audience than just the diehard fans, but still I can’t help but think that some of the lines in the movie are, well, a bit unoriginal. But enough of the whining, I actually think it looks damn good, and really can’t wait for the release. Special edition for me? I think so.
