Battlefleet Gothic: Armada
« on: 05 Jan 2016, 14:05 »

It should be out soon, maybe next month?

Now, I always get excited about new 40k games.  And they always suck. Like, without a doubt.

There's the upcoming card game for horus heresy that looks cool. It will probably suck.
There's the upcoming MMO, which will probably suck
There's the upcoming diablo clone, which will probably suck
There's the upcoming FPS, which will probably suck

:(

This one might be ok though, and scratch some RTS/spaceship pew pew itches.

No doubt I will end up buying this game. We'll see if it turns out a disapointment or not but so far it looks alright.

This has passed me by entirely.

So much  :cube: for bringing this to my attention Silas.

I've waited for this so long as it is, by far, my favourite GW game.
Now I can only hope they don't mess it up.

Me whenever I see Gothic-styled cathedrals with engines and guns slapped on them

You're clearly not a fan of Cathedral-Mechs either then...

To be fair like you I'm not a fan of the Imperial themed factions besides maybe the Mechanicus tanks and Sororitas Seraphim/Repentia aesthetic.

Glad that the Eldar/Dark Eldar appear to be in the game.

I kinda enjoy the new Space Tomb Kings, but it did take away from the horror angle of having to deal with these old bones.

The implacable horror of undying metal skeletons phasing into existence in a burst of horrific green techno-arcane lighting was certainly a great aesthetic.

However when they started to expand on the Necron having defined personalities and Tomb Kings-esque hierarchies they did knock them down a peg in terms of horror.

Speaking of are the Necron supposed to be in Gothic:Armada?

I'm pretty conflicted here. Do I play as the Imperium of Man where I can hurt things heavily with well-placed shots before proceeding to ram into them, or do I play Orks where I just ram into things while pouring fire in every conceivable direction and forgetting what aiming means?
