Dawn of War II + 5th ed!

This could go either in the news section or in the Video game section, but i thought i'd stick it here:-



this is the new 5th ed trailer



and this it the countdown board for the U.S.A. WEll come on! You did't think the U.K. team would have their fingers out their ass quick enough to actually do a counter! Thats why the U.S. site is so much better than the U.K. one!!

Excellent! Can't wait for either of these things to come around!

Watching the first trailer for DoW II though... The Ork sound effects are sooo familiar, and I can't put my finger on where I've heard those sounds before... I've been watching it over and over trying to figure it out.

*sigh* I have to point out that despite what you see in games, lasrifles win wars. Just because lasrifles suck at killing superhuman killing machines in power armor does not mean that they are bad weapons. You are shooting them at the wrong targets. The most common enemy the Imperium faces is lightly armored humans armed with lasguns or autoguns, NOT SPACE MARINES.

I am so excited about DOWII that I can barely contain myself. I hope that Nurgle gets some love...he's often overlooked in the video game translations.

The latest issue of PC Gamer has a multipage article complete with some amazing screenshots of the game.

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?
