Default BloodBowl for PC

so i just got BB for $15 in the "get rid of it fast" bin @ my local best buy.

does anyone here play it or know anyone who has played it?

anything good/bad to say about the game, i just got it because i thought it was a steal at $15.

so was it a good buy?

I have it for the Xbox, and it is a good and enjoyable game. You wont probably be recommending it to all your friends, but if you like Warhammer it should at least be entertaining.

Now where did I put my copy?

I have it on PC. I played it a bit but a simple disconnect ends up costing you the game so I gave up after losing stupid games I was winning. Its not uncommon to drop connection once in an hour and half.

Maybe it was just me but I think they made it more complicated a game than it really needed to be.

I might be insulting people by saying this but, I'd rather play Chaos League.

Its worth mentioning that I do play BB (orcs), and enjoy every game.

"But," says Man, "the Babel fish is a dead giveaway, isn't it? It could not have evolved by chance. It proves you exist, and so therefore, by your own arguments, you don't. QED."

"Oh dear," says God, "I hadn't thought of that," and promptly vanishes in a puff of logic.

I play it from time to time in private leagues and it's good fun, it's accurate to the board game.

I was initially not a fan of steam, at the start it had its issues but I find its got better.

I have all the Dawn of War 2 games/ex pacs, UFO games and Half Life 2 on Steam and they work great through my front end (XBMC into Hyperspin). They run no issue.

For a HTPC no CD/DVD is a must, I am also reluctant to start putting No CD patches on as they can get "iffy"
