Which is being destroyed by entitled fan boys.
Seriously? Based on that logic then literally no games would be made. Every video game forum under the sun is full of whining. 90% of the internet is whining (and pictures of cats).

I honestly have no idea what you mean by "entitled fan boys" ruining our chances of getting a decent computer game set in the 40k universe...

Multimillion pound companies don't base decisions on what products they release/don't release on people crying on the internet, otherwise Chaos would still be running the 3.5 dex and Sisters of Battle would have more codex releases than any other army, and the biggest model range.

90% of people think they are above average.

Statistically Improbable. Psychologically Inevitable.

They could probably follow more in line with the Inqusition styled RPG. Could possibly follow a similar play-style as KOTOR.
That was exactly what i was thinking with my inquisitor idea above. Just remake Skyrim, but you're an inquisitor rather than the Dragonborn, wandering around some hive world on an epic quest.

I agree Varakir that game sounds sweet! killing mutants and cultist. There could be an expansion where genestealers begin infiltrating the population and you have to find the broodlord and F him up!



Yeah, we flew our space church across 500 light years to get to this planet taken over by the space orks. Now we're going to drop from orbit in buckets and run out and shoot pistols and hit people in the head with chainsaws. Yeaaaah Ultramarines!

Multiple worlds, races, factions with space travel and exploration. 'Tis a pipe dream.

Ah, Totalbiscuit, one of my favorite Youtubers.

He's dead on though about Storm of Vengeance. I was surprised about how many decent 40k games there were over the years. Granted, I haven't seen/heard of most of them.

Assuming what Sega does with Relic, there is a possibility that we can see another DoW or Space Marine game. That is, of course, if the license is renewed.

It would be cool to have a BFG set game, maybe like space combat in Star Wars-empire at war
Or a Titan based shooter game, that would be SICK
Or a, or a, JUST LET ME KILL SHIT!!!

I think a 40k game based closely on the mass effect system would be pretty amazing, with you playing a fairly high ranking space marine who gets to make different decisions which lead to VERY different endings, even having rippling effects such that simple decisions early on in the game can lead to huge repercussions.

This could also be very well done, but again must be done by someone like Bioware or Bethesda. I'm surprised to see a lot of Devs that make high quality games don't seem to see any potential in the Warhammer 40k lore. Fantasy may be getting some relief since Total War is going to develop a game based around their engines (maybe).

Perhaps we should start a glorious campaign towards Bioware and Bethesda to draw their attention to making an epic 40k game?
