This Warhammer 40k diorama, made entirely from LEGO bricks, is just so fantastic. It makes me wonder: If these were official kits, would it be cheaper than buying regular Warhammer space marines and orks? At least building them would definitely take less time.
This is what a 700-piece Warhammer 40K (also known as Warhammer $40K) set looks like, all painted carefully by hand. The owner of the collection, a Korean Warhammer enthusiast, probably went through lots of pain to complete this set, but it's definitely worth all the time and money. It looks incredible.
With their reliance on a large, stable online player base to survive, every massively multiplayer online game is destined to die — the only question is when. Will they last ten years, like Disney's Toontown Online, or die in beta like The Mummy Online? Here's to the MMOs that didn't make it past 2013.
It's a strange thing, the video game industry. The people who publish big games will sometimes cancel, move, or overhaul them entirely. Nothing wrong with any of that, but one big problem is that along the way, some of those publishers will clam up. They'll refuse to give straight answers or talk about their plans.
Following the failure of its uDraw tablet for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 and December's shutdown of it's children's game division, THQ has officially announced today that it's focusing on its core franchises. So Spongebob is out, UFC, Darksiders, Company of Heroes, inSANE, Saints Row and Warhammer 40,000 are in.
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.
Until recently I was under the impression that Warhammer 40,000 was a tabletop war game played mainly by bookish and bearded nerds in comic shops and out-of-the-way conference rooms at sci-fi / fantasy conventions.
Relic Entertainment has proven time and time again with its Dawn of War real-time strategy franchise that it has a deep respect for Warhammer: 40.000. Does that respect extend to the third-person shooter?
Large and bulky like the mutated heroes of the game itself, the Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine collector's edition could easily take down your average Ork. Let's take a peek inside.
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.
While its big, burly characters make it look like it wants to be Gears of War, Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine's core tenant is distinctly un-Gears-like: Cover is for the weak.
Mark Strong, the actor who voices Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine's Captain Titus, is new to the Warhammer world. After getting a taste of Warhammer, he says he want to "take a big swim" in the universe.
Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine is a big, bone crunching action game, and it needs to sound like it. The development team looked to Hollywood to create cinematic moments that felt as gigantic and world moving as those on the silver screen. Using a live orchestra sure doesn't hurt.
Earlier today, a post on the official forum for Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine said that cooperative multiplayer for the game would not be available at launchand would be added into the game 30 days after launch "give or take." The post has since been removed, but publisher THQ has yet to confirm any plans or…
If the text flashing by in this trailer are to be believed, Relic Entertainment has managed to cram 1.8 billion different ways to customize Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine's six multiplayer classes, a number at least 1,000 times larger than the amount of people likely to care.
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.
