Vermintide review – Ahm not a raaaaat!

Have you and your friends ever done that thing? Y’know, it’s later in the evening when someone says “man I kind of want to play some co-op games!” Then there’s the inevitable struggle to find something everybody enjoys and, more importantly, owns. Invariably, in these situations one ends up browsing Steam and the web for lists of the “best multiplayer games” so that you can avoid playing hours of Garry’s Mod (which, let’s be fair, tends to only be amusing in short stints). Every single one of these lists almost always makes some mention of Left 4 Dead and how it is a quintessential multiplayer and co-op experience (both local and remote). So it has always confused me how it seems nobody has really quite captured the same feeling of the games. Well, look no further friends, because Warhammer *hurrrk* The End Times *hurrrk* Vermintide does actually more than just come close. Aside from the silliness of having two subtitles (when really just “Vermintide” suffices) the game does so much right that I feel the need to say that it is definitely more than just a carbon copy of L4D.

Battlefleet Gothic: Armada review – You make me mada… but in a good way.

    Battlefleet Gothic: Armada is the newest game capatlising on the long running franchise of Warhammer 40k. Warhammer titles have always been a hit and miss afair, luckily Battlefleet Gothic is a critical hit with all broadside macro-cannons although it’s not without its’ flaws. I have always been mildly interested in the Warhammer 40k universe but my interest has never reached beyond that. Dawn of war and Dawn of war 2 were great games but that was in spite of it’s Warhammer 40k theme, not because of it. I’m told that Battlefleet is very true to the lore but frankly I couldn’t care less and for a very simple reason. Space ships shooting the shit out of each other is cool. It is very, very cool.

THQ’s Warhammer 40K: Dark Millenium is No Longer an MMO

As the title suggests, THQ have decided to change the focus of Dark Millenium Online from MMO to an “”immersive single player and online multiplayer experience”. So while there will still be multiplayer elements to the game it seems that more of the game will focus on the singleplayer side of it. This is, however, a step up from earlier this year when there were rumours of THQ going bankrupt and of the game being cancelled completely.

Dark Millennium Announced… For another distance point in the future…

Do you like Warhammer 40K? Do you like MMOs? Will you still be interested in both of these things in two years? Well then you’re in luck! THQ (the developers behind Space Marine… still waiting on that review Tim!) have announced Warhammer 40K: Dark Millennium, a Warhammer 40K MMO. They have also already stated that it is set for release on March the 13th, 2013, which is a long time enough away for me to make this post and then comfortably forget about it for a little while.
