Default Xbox Live Gamer Pics?

Does anyone else really wish they had some Warhammer gamer pictures to choose from? I mean they have all kinds of other dumb things on there to choose. Hell I'd go for something as boring as the Ultramarines symbol... anything!

Not really, I dont pay any attention to gamer pics. The choice is pretty crap though, I think I just grabbed a football image.

It's probably cause there's no 40k games on the 360. (thank god!)

no, why would I use a crappy 40k symbol instead of my little guy with blue goggles from advanced warfare, I love that little guy, been there since I started........well except now its cortana, which is still better than 40k symbols cus its cortana.

A game about giant super-soldiers, wearing 3 tons of armour and waving their giant overcompensating guns around, killing hordes of evil aliens in ruined cities. It sounds very original. Maybe we'll even see some really original and inspired gameplay mechanics; like slo-mo, quick-time events or the ability to execute/help downed enemies. It sounds like a jaw dropping, genre defining game.

Oh and in case you couldn't tell that was all sarcasm. When will GW dump THQ and stick to what it's good at: Making high quality, fantasy and sci-fi miniatures at a cheap affordable pri.... Hmm, ah I know: Creating friendly environments by treating it's fanbase like it cares abo... Hmm, no that doesn't sound right. This is harder than it looks.

Also my observations have told me that people don't get mad at you if you put smilies in your post.

How can you not think Space Marine is gonna be a fun game? I am really excited to see a new IP that already looks great. If you haven't seen the leaked pre alpha gameplay... I mean the game already looks better than half the crap the giant game companies pump out.

This seems to be a more recent trailer:
http://au.xbox360.ign.com/dor/object...=4bnddop995i8c

Now that I've seen these trailers I can check off my list:

Giant super-soldiers, wearing 3 tons of armour and waving their giant overcompensating guns around. CHECK

Killing hordes of evil aliens in ruined cities. CHECK

Slo-mo sequences. CHECK

Quick-time events. CHECK

Ability to execute/help downed enemies. CHECK

It's not that it's gonna be shit, it's just all been done a hundred times before, and usually better. I'd be happy to play an original game if THQ would release one, but they have proven there scorn for anything that is original and not encase in three tons of sickening, bright blue armour.

THQ does have some good originals. Company of Heroes is an excellent game. I like DOW plenty same with DOW II, and I think the Space Marine IP is going to be sucessful. Another thing to me most games add very little in the way of "new" things. Doom- shoot guns. Halo- shoot guns. Call of Duty- shoot guns. It's the same for all genres of games, just tweek what someone did last year. I see Space Marine as very similar to the Gears of War games except you are in the way cooler Warhammer universe. So I don't see why anyone who is a shooter and Warhammer fan would not be excited for this game.
