I am very glad the game will be coming to PC. I'm less glad that this might mean getting a new graphics and/or processor for my PC. Might just be worth it though.

I remember this thing, this was that God of War-thingee with ultrasmurf Movie Marines. I don't see whats the big deal about it, its just another DURR-HURR SPESS MUHREENZ ROXORZ BOXORZ HURPADURP game. If you could play with something else, ANYTHING else then I'd be more excited. Hell, even being able to play with a Guardsman would be more exciting than your "THE GW IS WITH ME AND I SHALL NOT FEAR!" type of game with a negligible story that just barely justifies all the bloodshed. I mean, thats why there are Orks and CSM, and not Eldar or Tau, because this way they don't need to come up with anything even marginally more creative than "WAAAGH!!!" and "BLOOD FOR THE BLOOD GOD". I'm not looking forward to yet another set of random, uninteresting Warbosses (though if Gorgutz makes an appearance and can't be killed... :)), lame, retarded Chaos Lords, and Space Marines who think themselves gods and yet are unable to pronounce properly or come up with an even borderline interesting dialogue.

I'll have to see some very promising reviews of this thing before I even get close to it.

Its pretty much inevitable that if a game is good it'll come to pc. Any game company with any type of sense realises that the PC market is just as big and in some cases bigger then the console market for their games.

Replace all GW Comments with any game genre here and this applies to all games.

I dont play violent games for the "Story" i play them to release frustration as i imagine most people do.

Postal 2 is a violent game yet it still has a great story. Sure its not Iliad but I had a great time laughing my ass off at all the shit that happened. And thats just one example.

The reason that the lack of quality storytelling annoys me is that 40K is a rich universe with a wide range of potential motivations. I can't think of any decent excuses for not making use of the resources they have at hand.

I also don't like how the "original" grimdark of 40K (meaning: the good guys aren't from Hollywood and they have their fair share of humbling defeats and very often something irreplacable is lost, just like in real life) is turning into a "new" grimdark which applies to every non-Imperial faction, meaning that if the SM (and various chapters) show up you're fucked on a 2+. I miss the heroic bit in all this; just think of what sacrifices it took for the Grey Knights to banish Angron.

Nice. Now I'll probably be getting this game. :)
My thoughts precisely; I'm not prepared to buy a console just for one game, so stuff either comes out on PC or I don't play it. Now all I need is the 'Plague Marine' mod, where you play as one of Father Nurgle's finest and get to slaughter Smurfs all day :biggrin:

I'd already ordered it for my xbox.. so.. don't really mind, but it is good seeing games out for the pc as well. I'm waiting for another graphics stress test like crysis 2 though, I want to try out my new card!

Set in the rich Warhammer 40,000 universe created by Games Workshop, Space Marine will be released worldwide for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 system and PC in early 2011.

"It's About Fucking time" :punish::drinks: We have been wateing for this game for what 3 years now. I can't wate for this game to come out.

Nerd Ragin' FTW :victory:

And since the game will be an Xbox/PS3 port, don't worry about upgrading your computers. :eek:k:
