Default Space Marine game preview

So there's a new video up, showing footage of the upcoming console game Space Marine.

Here you go:

http://www.ign.com/videos/2011/04/08...rine-dev-diary

It was really funny hearing the game devs talk about the 40k universe. That skinny guy has a good grasp of it, only error was that he called the wyrdboyz 'shamans'.

I'll buy this for my playstation if reviews are good!

So what do you guys think of it?

looks good, im happy that at least one person on the design team, seemingly, knows what 40k is about

The ultramarines movie was enough, what about the other 40K races?

Such as? A Guardsman who's only role is to catch enough bullets to let the Tanks do the work?

Sisters of Battle, to be labled as pervy nerd developers?

Orks? Yeah, green aliens who can't hit a barn door with a banjo in a FPS game, yet lack individuality and empathy?

Chaos? Evil Space Marines?

Daemons? No Empathy?

Eldar? No Empathy?

Tau? No Empathy?

Space Marines are the best choice bar none for a game - they are the one force that the Imperium can offer which allows people to play in FPS Modes similar to CoD AND save the Galaxy, without people going onto the whole unbelievable story line; yet another SAS Dude saves the world which is where Bad Company and Call of Duty fall down. On the other hand, look at Medal of Honor for how story lines should play out. SF guys who complete tasks, but are only part of the bigger picture.

No, I think it could work for the other races as long as you made is right, if you know what I mean. I just get so fed up with so many space marine things, they get everything these days.

but then the "Space marine" is the cash cow of GW, despite what us tabletop gamers field, there gona use the SM to sell games and hook new players on plastic crack.
If it was based on say Orks, players who dont know about 40K would just think its a sci-fi version of world of warcrap

the graphics look infinitely better than the ultramarines movie and the who feel of it looks to be very 40K.

I imagine that should this prove to be a real success then developers will get more free rein. I can't imagine IG ever getting one but the other races, especially eldar imo have great opportunity
