Last year the folks at Gaming Heads brought upon this Earth a plague of cuddly, snuggly Cacodemons and Pain Elementals. Here is their heartfelt apology, armed with with the fluffiest plasma gun ever.
You've got to hand it to Henrik Pilerud, creator of this seven-foot-tall Blood Angel Space Marine armor from Warhammer 40K, because if he tries to hand it to you he might crush you with his massive, articulated fist.
It's about as ubiquitous a term in science fiction—and video games—as "starship", "lightspeed" and "datapad", but an author at the centre of a copyright struggle claims that Games Workshop, the company behind the Warhammer 40K franchise, is trying to take legal possession of the term "space marine".
As promised, four-player online co-op is here for the PlayStation 3 and PC versions of Warhammer: 40.000: Space Marine, with the Xbox 360 version following soon after. And so the enemy of my enemy becomes my friend.
"Exterminatus," the late-addition cooperative mode for Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine, will release Oct. 25, publisher THQ said today. It had originally been scheduled for an "early October" release.
The Brian Wood Memorial Trust, set up to assist the family of a Relic developer killed tragically in a car accident last year, is raising funds this month with some great Warhammer 40K swag.
Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine is an action shooter with weight. And that weight doesn't come from just the screen-shaking heft of the marines you play, it also comes from the deep history of the nearly 25-year-old franchise upon which the game was built.
Relic's Space Marine is swinging a chainsword at your favorite console this week—and if that destroyed console happens to be a PlayStation 3, you're in luck.
Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine is out next week. And developers Relic have only today revealed the fact the game will have a co-op mode. It's a late addition to the game; so late, in fact, it won't be available until next month.
To the uninitiated, the Chaos Marines in Warhammer 40,000 are just like the Space Marines, only purple with glowing red eyes. Perhaps it's best we just leave it at that.
Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine is still a big, thunderous shoot 'em up mixed with Ork-eviscerating action. Not much has changed here: Space Marine is booming, bloody violence in the most unpleasant of alien environments.
Space Marine — the upcoming action game set in the world of Warhammer 40,000 — has a taste for a bit of the old ultra-violence if these new screens are anything to go by.
The Warhammer 40,000 universe's descriptive tagline—"In the grim darkness of the far future, there is only war"—does not sound like a cheery fantasy in which many of us would like to find ourselves.
I'm pretty sure I saw this video at last year's E3, or at least parts of it, but this year, everyone gets to see the action. Which is awesome.
I woke up today with one mission in mind: get to THQ's booth, and check out Warhammer 40K: Space Marine. Mission. Accomplished.
